Development of a floating tidal energy system suitable for use in shallow water

Abstract

A proposal is made for the use of a traditional stream waterwheel suspended between two floating catamaran NPL series demi-hulls as means of generating electrical power. Two prototype devices, of lengths 1.6m and 4.5m, have been developed, constructed and tested. It was found that the concept is sound although greater investment is required with regards to… (More)
