Project Description and Objectives
Renewable energy has occupied the forefront of the energy supply studies around the world. With the advancement of science and technology, the use of renewable energy has expanded towards the ocean in the last decade. Particularly, tidal current energy and wave energy are regarded as two kinds of marine renewable energy with the highest prospect.
In this project, models of tidal current turbines and/or wave power generators will be tested in the ship model towing tank, to measure their hydrodynamic performance which is the key to marine renewable energy extraction.
Preparation of the facilities and instruments
Model test of the tidal current turbines and/or wave power generators
