Description/Abstract

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.
