  • A numerical model has been developed to rigorously simulate the physical oceanographic effects of one or several 100 megawatt Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) plant(s). The model suggests that OTEC plants can be configured such that the plant can conduct continuous operations, with resulting temperature and nutrient perturbations that are within naturally occurring levels. This presentation will describe the development and results of the numerical model, focusing on the physical and… CONTINUE READING
