  • Marine energy innovation in the UK energy system: financial capital, social capital and interactive learning

    Innovation activity in marine energy (wave and tidal stream) has been catalysed by a series of recent UK policy initiatives. However, the wider UK energy system remains substantially oriented to market competition and efficiency. As a result, tensions have emerged between recent R&D activity (especially interactive and collaborative learning) and its economic and institutional context. Drawing on ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...

  • A novel particle swarm optimisation self-regulating stand-alone wave energy conversion scheme

    The paper presents a novel stabilisation scheme system for a wave energy converter (WEC) using permanent magnet linear generator (PMLG) connected to a six-pulse diode rectifier. The proposed controller of WEC-battery renewable energy system is based on multi-objective particle swarm optimisation (MOPSO) technique. The optimisation algorithm is implemented to control a novel low cost dynamic AC ...

  • Simulation-based evaluation of tidal current power output characteristics

    Tidal current is considered to be one of the promising alternative green energy resources. This paper introduces a simulation based methodology to evaluate tidal current power output characteristics, including capacity factor, and power production variability patterns. Power variability analysis is crucial to grid integration systems design. The proposed methodology is applied to the well known ...
