Simulation based optimisation of marine current turbine blades
Betram, Volker and Rigo, Philippe (eds.)
At 7th International Conference on Computer and IT Applications in the Maritime Industries (COMPIT’08).
21 - 23 Apr 2008.
This paper discusses techniques for simulation based optimisation of marine current turbines, and the relative benefits and disadvantages of such methods. Blade Element Momentum codes, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element analyses, and subsequently the coupling of such techniques, are considered. The relevancy of design, search and optimisation with respect to complex fluid and structural modelling is discussed.
