Abstract

Large tidal current devices are experiencing technological convergence into two or three-bladed horizontal-axis configuration. Most devices use a gear-coupled drive-train, a permanent magnet generator and power electronic converters. This work presents a water-to-wire comprehensive dynamic model of a generic tidal current device. The model is assessed under varying water flows, device settings and diverse operational conditions that are unique to tidal applications. The detailed model can be further modified to fit specific user needs, including, device design, control settings, resource assessment, or power system studies.
