Abstract

The global demand for low carbon electricity requires a variety of energy generation approaches, the choice of which is dependent on multiple criteria. Tidal flows have long been identified as a reliable source of energy, with a high degree of predictability. To this end a novel turbine has been developed that could be well suited to energy generation in both tidal flows, or water courses. In this study a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) model, namely DualSPHysics, is used to predict the behavior of this novel turbine design. Which will be used to guide the design process. The SPH method was chosen as the design of the turbine uses several connected parts, that requires free movement and interactions to properly represent the prototype and was found to be capable of expressing this behavior.
