Abstract or Summary
  • 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 two ebbs and floods each day of unequal strength (i.e., a diurnal inequality in which a strong ebb/flood exchange is followed by a weak exchange). The diurnal inequalities provide extended windows of weak currents for device installation and maintenance activities relative to a purely semidiurnal tidal regime, though at the expense of reduced generation potential for equivalent peak currents. In order to evaluate device performance, a generalized probability distribution and vertical profile for current speeds in a mixed, mainly semidiurnal tidal regime is required. Once the distribution of velocities is known, leading‐order device performance may be evaluated based on the device operating parameters at each point on the distribution. These parameters include cut‐in speed, rated speed, and power conversion efficiency.
