In Situ Turbulence Replication Evaluation And Measurement (InSTREAM).

Instrumentation set-up for test tank

The flow through tidal passages is, by nature, extremely turbulent and this variability in flow speed affects the efficiency of energy extraction and the operational risks for in-stream turbines. The accurate measurement and numerical modeling of turbulence for these conditions will de-risk  the design and development of tidal energy sites and reduce their cost of operation.

A collaborative Canadian - UK research project, In Situ Turbulence Replication Evaluation And Measurement (InSTREAM ...

Turbulence in Marine Environments (TiME) reduces risk for tidal energy

Turbulent effects map

The TiME project consortium (consisting of partners Partrac, Ocean Array Systems, ABPmer, and IT Power). has announced today that the Guidance formulated from the TiME (Turbulence in Marine Environments) project has now been released. The project, funded by the Scottish Government and managed by the Carbon Trust through the Marine Renewables Commercialisation Fund (MRCF) Array Technology Innovation Programme, was developed to improve the understanding of the effect of marine turbulence ...
