Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 May 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 56
ICS Code (Hydraulic energy engineering): 27.140
scope:

This Technical Specification provides:

• a systematic methodology for evaluating the power performance of tidal current energy converters (TECs) that produce electricity for utility scale and localized grids;

• a definition of TEC rated power and rated water velocity;

• a methodology for the production of the power curves for the TECs in consideration;

• a framework for the reporting of results.

Exclusions from the scope of this Technical Specification are as follows:

• tidal energy converters (TECs) that provide forms of energy other than electrical energy unless the other form is an intermediary step that is converted into electricity by the TEC;

• resource assessment. This will be carried out in the tidal energy resource characterization and assessment Technical Specification (future IEC/TS 62600-201);

• scaling of any measured or derived results;

• power quality issues;

• any type of performance other than power and energy performance;

• the combined effect of multiple TEC arrays.
