  1. 1. Hydro-Kinetic Energy Conversion Resource and Technology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mårten Grabbe; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tidal energy; renewable energy; vertical axis turbine; permanent magnet generator; resource assessment; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : The kinetic energy present in tidal currents and other water courses has long been appreciated as a vast resource of renewable energy. The work presented in this doctoral thesis is devoted to both the characteristics of the hydro-kinetic resource and the technology for energy conversion. READ MORE

  2. 2. System Perspectives on Hydro-Kinetic Energy Conversion

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Katarina Yuen; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tidal energy; permanent magnet; direct-drive; in-stream power converter; load control; vertical axis turbine; renewable energy; engineering science; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Free-flowing water currents such as tides and unregulated water courses could contribute to world electricity production given the emergence of robust technical solutions for extracting the energy. At Uppsala University, a concept for converting the energy in water currents to electricity using a vertical axis turbine with fixed blade-pitch and a direct-drive permanent magnet generator is studied.

  3. 3. Marine Current Energy Conversion

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Staffan Lundin; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; marine current energy; renewable energy; turbine; energy conversion; wake; Söderfors; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Marine currents, i.e. water currents in oceans and rivers, constitute a large renewable energy resource. This thesis presents research done on the subject of marine current energy conversion in a broad sense. READ MORE

  4. 4. On national technology policy in global energy transitions: The case of Swedish marine energy

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johnn Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; energy transitions; innovation policy; marine energy technology; technology policy; tidal kite technology; technological innovation systems; sustainability transitions;

    Abstract : Mitigating climate change and achieving sustainable development requires a rapid global transition to a low-carbon energy system. Policymakers therefore promote new renewable energy technologies, while also aiming to create localized environmental and socioeconomic benefits. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards Technology Assessment of Ocean Energy in a Developing Country Context

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Linus Hammar; [2011]
