IEC TS 62600-201
Marine energy – Wave, tidal and other water current converters – Part 201: Tidal energy resource assessment and characterization
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
|ICS Code (Hydraulic energy engineering):||27.140|
This part of IEC 62600 establishes a system for analysing and reporting, through estimation or direct measurement, the theoretical tidal current energy resource in oceanic areas including estuaries (to the limit of tidal influence) that may be suitable for the installation of arrays of TECs.
It is intended to be applied at various stages of project lifecycle to provide suitably accurate estimates of the tidal resource to enable the arrays' projected annual energy production to be calculated at each TEC location in conjunction with IEC 62600-200.
