Marine energy - Wave, tidal and other water current converters - Part 200: Electricity producing tidal energy converters - Power performance assessment

Price from:
€ 96.69


This Technical Specification provides:
• A systematic methodology for evaluating the power performance of tidal current energy
converters (TECs) that produce electricity for utility scale and localized grids;
• A definition of TEC rated power and rated water velocity;
• A methodology for the production of the power curves for the TECs in consideration;
• A framework for the reporting of the results.
Exclusions to the scope of the Technical Specification are as follows:
• Tidal Energy Converters (TECs) that provide forms of energy other than electrical energy
unless the other form is an intermediary step that is converted into electricity by the TEC;
• Resource Assessment. This will be carried out in the Tidal Energy Resource
Characterization and Assessment Technical Specification (62600-201);
• Scaling of any measured or derived results;
• Power quality issues;
• Any type of performance other than power and energy performance;
• The combined effect of multiple TEC arrays.
