    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; marine current energy; renewable energy; turbine; energy conversion; wake; Söderfors; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Sammanfattning : Marine currents, i.e. water currents in oceans and rivers, constitute a large renewable energy resource. This thesis presents research done on the subject of marine current energy conversion in a broad sense. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Electric Energy Conversion Systems : Wave Energy and Hydropower

    Författare :Karin Thorburn; Mats Leijon; Petra Lundström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Engineering physics; Ocean wave power; renewable energy; linear generator; farm simulation; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Electric energy conversion is an important issue in today's society as our daily lives largely depend on the supplies of energy. Two energy sources are studied for conversion in the present thesis, ocean waves and hydropower. The work focuses on the generator and the transmission of its output to the electric grid. LÄS MER
