Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has been heavily researched and developed over the last decade. However, no commercial scale for OTEC has been reached yet. OTEC is a clean and renewable source of energy which utilizes the seawater temperature difference between the upper and deep ocean layers to generate electricity. The heat exchangers...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) technology development is currently in the gap between academia and commercialization. To bridge this gap, all stakeholders that influence the development must perform optimally. This thesis presents the performance of OTEC developing stakeholder groups (‘clusters’) in Japan, the Netherlands, France, USA...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a technique to generate electricity by using the thermal gradient available in the ocean to drive a heat engine. In order for OTEC to become successful it is important to reduce the levelized cost of electricity. The development of an effective control system can aid in this endeavour, by making sure...

At the Paris climate conference in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first ever universal, legally binding global climate agreement. This combined with the depletion of fossil fuels drives the interest in renewable energy technologies. The thermal gradient in the ocean is a largely untapped source of renewable energy. It can be utilized...

The oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface and are therewith the largest source of renewable heat available on the planet. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that exploits this low-grade oceanic heat. A heat engine is employed to generate electricity from the small temperature gradient that is available between the...

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a renewable energy technology which can operate as a base load source of energy in equatorial areas. By converting the thermal energy of the sun stored in the oceans into electricity, this technology provides a sustainable solution for tropical islands. One of the key factor to accelerate the roadmap...

The virtual synchronous machine (VSM) concept has emerged as an approach to provide flexible distributed control of power electronic converters interfacing distributed energy resources with the grid. It supports power system operation by providing ancillary services, and facilitates a seamless transition between grid-connected and islanded...

Since the awareness that the conventional energy sources will run short, the use of various renewable energy sources has been investigated, these are solar, wind, ocean and geothennal energy. Quite some countries are interested in wave energy conversion. In several countries some full-scale wave energy converting pilot plants have been tested....

In 1987 a study of small estuaries around the coast of the United Kingdom was undertaken by Binnie & Partners for the Department of Energy. The Wyre was identified as one of the most promising sites for the construction of a small tidal power scheme. The Wyre Estuary is located in Lancashire on the north west coast of England. The estuary...

The purpose of this report is to find out which floating breakwaters can be utilized in open sea conditions and what can be expected of them. Since every breakwater interferes with the energy of the waves, it is logical that a probable power generation function of floating breakwaters is also investigated. This report is a global review of the...

Een OTEC-centrale maakt gebruik van de temperatuurverschillen tussen het warme oppervlaktewater (tropen) en het dieper gelegen koude water, om energie op te wekken. Zo'n centrale kan op het land (aan de kust ) worden gebouwd, maar ook drijvend worden uitgevoerd. Een belangrijk onderdeel dat in het verleden al problemen heeft veroorzaakt is de...
