Abstract:
This paper considers the optimal strategy for the design and operation of tidal stream turbine farms. Using an idealised model we explore the implications of limiting the peak power and peak thrust of the turbines. We consider the impact on power production and on the environmental impact. Our results suggest that a combined power and thrust-capping strategy should be adopted in the design of tidal stream turbine farms.
