Tidal stream power generation represents a promising source of renewable energy. In order to extract an economically useful amount of power, tens to hundreds of tidal turbines need to be placed within an array. The layout of these turbines can have a significant impact on the power extracted and hence on the viability of the site. Funke et al. [15] formulated the question of the best turbine layout as an optimisation problem constrained by the shallow water equations and solved it using a local… CONTINUE READING
