The 2014 Oxford Tidal Energy Workshop will be held on 7th and 8th April 2014 at the University of Oxford, and North Sea Systems have been asked to present a paper entitled “Performing oceanographic surveys on tidal energy sites using a data buoy”.
Following the successful workshops in the last two years, this year’s workshop aims to provide further opportunities for scientists, engineers, researchers and research students to discuss technical issues in tidal stream power generation. The topics may include, but are not limited to:
– Device-scale problems (hydrodynamics, design, fluid-structure interaction etc.)
– Array-scale problems (wake interaction, array optimisation, etc.)
– Basin-scale problems (resource assessments, environmental impacts, etc.)
– Novel experimental, computational and theoretical approaches for tidal energy research
NSS Project Manager Mungo Morgan will present to the workshop on how the DataFish has been designed specifically to operate in high tidal flow environments.
