  • Ruthruff, William Arthur (2006-07-07)
    Wind energy is a cornerstone to the world of renewables. It is widely used in many parts of the world as a clean and effective form of power generation. However, wind power has a number of drawbacks, which limits its u ...
  • Schacher, Anthony Clinton (2004-06-09)
    A significantly untapped renewable energy source exists in the world's oceans. It is estimated that if 0.2% of the ocean's untapped energy could be harnessed, it could provide power sufficient for the entire world. Ocea ...
  • Yin, Yao (2009-06-10)
    This essay provides a snapshot of sustainability and acceptability of wave energy and eight other electricity-generating energy sources in Oregon. Since “sustainability” is an important point of view in decision-making, ...
  • Hogan, Peter M. (Peter Matthew) (2007-06-19)
    Determining the performance characteristics of various ocean wave energy converters (OWEC) has proven to be difficult due to problems replicating a baseline motion profile in the ocean or wave tank to compare these devic ...
  • Suryan, Robert M.; Phillips, Elizabeth M.; So, Khemarith; Zamon, Jeannette E.; Lowe, Roy W.; Stephensen, Shawn W. (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2012-04)
    Increasingly diverse interests in commercial and recreational use of marine resources are creating new challenges for coastal ocean management. One concern of increased offshore use and development off the Oregon coast i ...
  • Sherman, Kate (2011-12-19)
    This presentation was given as part of Oregon State University's College of Oceanographic and Atmospheric Sciences graduate student seminar series. Sherman describes the concept of marine spatial planning and then applie ...
  • York, Charles E. (2010-09-22)
    As interest grows in developing devices to harvest energy from ocean waves, tidal currents, and offshore wind, concerns over possible environmental effects from such devices also grow. One such concern is over the induc ...
  • Garcia, Gabriel; Ozkan-Haller, H. Tuba; Ruggiero, Peter (2011-12-19)
    This presentation was given as part of Oregon State University's College of Oceanographic and Atmospheric Sciences graduate student seminar series. It describes the basics of wave forecasting and then focuses on work im ...
  • Batten, Belinda; Polagye, Brian L. (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2013-05)
    In 2008, the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Wind and Water Power Program issued a funding opportunity announcement to establish university-­‐led National Marine Renewable Energy Centers. Oregon ...
  • Schacher, Alphonse A. (2007-07-23)
    Ocean wave energy is rapidly becoming a field of great interest in the world of renewable energy. Significant advancements in design and technology are being made to make wave energy a viable alternative for our growing ...
  • VanderMeulen, Aaron H. (2007-07-12)
    Wave energy conversion devices are a rapidly growing interest worldwide for the potential to harness a sustainable and renewable energy source. Due to the oscillatory nature of ocean waves, the power generated from a per ...
  • Prudell, Joseph H. (2007-12-11)
    The world’s energy consumption is growing at an alarming rate and the need for renewable energy is apparent now more than ever. Estimates have shown that optimization of the extraction of energy from the ocean could si ...
  • Ernst, Steven George (2009-06-03)
    With the increasing effort to identify alternative methods of energy generation, extraction of ocean energy has gathered a large interest. Research and industry have begun considering wave energy as the next new alterna ...
  • Zhang, Heng (2003-06-27)
    The world's oceans contain tremendous renewable energy potentials. It is estimated that if 0.2% of the ocean's untapped energy could be harnessed, it could provide power sufficient for the entire world [1]. This thesis ...
  • Henkel, Sarah; Haxel, Joe; Schultz, Adam; Hoffard, Anna; Moran, Sean; Hellin, Dan; Hidenbrand, Kaety (2015-12-04)
    The North Energy Test Site (NETS) is PMEC’s non-grid connected, open ocean test site located approximately 4.6 km (2.5 nautical miles) off Yaquina Head, north of Newport, Oregon. The site is about 3.4 km2 (1 square nauti ...
  • Hellin, Dan; Henkel, Sarah (2015-12-04)
    The North Energy Test Site (NETS) is PMEC’s non-grid connected, open ocean test site located approximately 4.6 km (2.5 nautical miles) off Yaquina Head, north of Newport, Oregon. The site is about 3.4 km2 (1 square nauti ...
  • Hovland, Justin (2010-06-22)
    Ocean Wave Energy Converters (WECs) operating on the water surface are subject to storms and other extreme events. In particular, high and steep waves, especially breaking waves, are likely the most dangerous to WECs. A ...
  • Hunter, Daniel A. (2009-05-26)
    Oregon’s coastal communities grew from the booming logging and fishing industries of the 19th century, but in recent decades have faced not only major declines in both timber and fish resources but also an increasing rel ...
  • Polagye, Brian L. (Northwest National Marine Renewable Energy Center, 2011-12)
    Reference Model #1 is a tidal turbine operating in a narrow, tidal channel. The site is a generalized version of Tacoma Narrows, Puget Sound, Washington. The resource is a mixed, mainly semidiurnal tidal regime with tw ...
  • Gore, Ganesh P. (2006-07-26)
    Accurate scaled modeling and simulation are critical to advancing ocean wave linear generator buoys. A 100th scaled model of ocean wave generator buoy systems is analyzed by solving the Navier-Stokes equations. These eq ...
