The Efficiency of Genetic Algorithm Compared to Traditional Turbine Layout in Tidal Turbine Farm Planning

Date: February 25, 2015 at 11:05 GMT

Current tidal turbine farm studies focus on a few types of standard layouts in controlled conditions. However, real world tidal flows are rarely like the controlled flows used for current studies. Hence, it is not known how current layouts will fare in the real world conditions. The purpose of this work is to study the performance of these layouts in real world flow conditions, as well as to propose methodologies for optimizing the farm layout.
