The power available to tidal turbines in an open channel flow

Abstract:

Linear momentum actuator disc theory (LMADT) is extended to address the power available to a tidal turbine array spanning the cross-section of an open channel flow. A generalised formulation is presented which relaxes constraints in previous models on the Froude number of the flow and geometry of the turbine array, and also considers the effects of far-wake mixing on the overall power removed from the flow. In the limiting case of no free surface deformation, the rigid-lid model of Garret and...
