Power control strategy for grid connected permanent magnet synchronous generator of a distributed generation unit

by Inderscience Publishers  (Jul. 7, 2014)

This paper describes the studies on the operation and control of a variable speed wave energy conversion system. The wave energy conversion system considered is oscillating–water–column (OWC) based Wells turbine driven permanent magnet synchronous generator connected to the grid by means of fully controlled frequency converter. In such systems ...

Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: peace for our children

by Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTEC)  (Apr. 24, 2014)

Two centuries ago, U.S. President John Adams advised us of the importance of observing our world with clear eyes, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes and passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” Though there are some facts we all would rather not face, one of those unpleasant truths is that ...

Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: clean water for our children

by Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation (OTEC)  (Apr. 24, 2014)

Water is the most life sustaining resource on earth. Essential to all aspects of our human lives, it serves as the key ingredient in food and drink, helps us fabricate clothes, landscapes our favourite places, drives economic growth and feeds agricultural development. Our bodies themselves are 70% water. This liquid of life keeps us hydrated, ...

How Briquetting Press Has Enhanced The Use Of Biomass Waste

by Jay Khodiyar Machine Tools  (Apr. 14, 2014)

Biomass waste has been used for producing the energy and fulfilling the household needs. With the inception of briquetting press the briquettes produced from the machines are now being used for greater purposes in diverse industries.   The mounting need for energy and industries are looking for alternative sources of energy for their all ...

Sustainable development with renewable energy resources: a review

by Inderscience Publishers  (Nov. 20, 2013)

The most visible effects of the sustainable development movement are found in several global issues such as the greenhouse effect, stratospheric ozone depletion, and loss of biodiversity. Combustion of fossil fuels and global warming are closely associated with each other. There is an urgent need to replace fossil fuels to renewable energy ...

Advanced offshore measurements to support wind energy production, weather forecasting, and emergency response

by Atmospheric Systems Corporation (ASC)  (Sep. 14, 2013)

Sonoma Technology, Inc. (STI), with support from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, is leading a unique partnership of corporate, government, and university researchers to develop a marine environmental observations program in the Gulf of Mexico. The primary goal of this project is to develop a framework of advanced offshore measurements to ...

Tidal Power Source

by CNJ Technology  (Jun. 2, 2013)

I imagined some new technique and I want to introduce it. This is only an ideology and not experimented yet. If anybody wants to experiment this i have no objection. According to me any technology that helps the mankind must be universal. I don’t want like anybody’s monopoly on this technology. I wish this technology should be ...

A binary ACO for controlling all–electric power take off system in wave energy converters

by Inderscience Publishers  (Apr. 1, 2013)

This paper describes a metaheuristic algorithm for controlling all–electric power take off (PTO) system of wave energy converters. It provides optimal parameter values to the controller following the instantaneously changing sea state. The output of the algorithm is used to tune the electrical control systems in the PTO system in order to provide ...

Is marine energy about to go mainstream?

by Carbon Trust  (Feb. 27, 2013)

Why the costs of wave and tidal power could soon plummet - viewpoint from Dr Stephen Wyatt, Head of Technology Acceleration, Carbon Trust As the marine industry gathers in London for its annual get together one thing is clear; the sector is growing up fast.  So fast that it looks like it will soon be defying its critics and getting its feet ...

Why it`s time to get serious about wave power

by Carbon Trust  (Oct. 22, 2012)

For most of us power from the sea means watching waves crashing on a beach or smashing up against a breakwater. But if you want to experience wave power at its most energetic then you need to be offshore. In fact you need to be over one hundred kilometres offshore. In February 2000, a British oceanographic research vessel sailing in the Rockall ...
