Ocean Energy Technologies: Systems and Grid Integration

Ahmed F. F. Zobaa

Ocean Energy Technologies: Systems and Grid Integration provides an analysis of ocean energy conversion technologies from an integral point-of-view, including not only the technical topics related with the physical conversion of energy, but also their social and economic impact. The book covers renewable energy sources, ocean energy, wave energy, tidal energy, thermal ocean energy and ocean or off-shore wind energy. The general approach includes not only technological aspects of conversion devices, but also the physics that support their conversion process. It also explores strategies for managing and integrating ocean power into the grid, covering power quality issues and other technical questions.

Energy engineering professionals, researchers in the field, and graduate students will find this book a useful starting point to understand the technologies and surrounding aspects involved in ocean energy systems.

  • Examines ocean energy systems and technologies for wave energy, tidal energy, ocean thermal energy and ocean wind energy with a special focus on their electrical, mechanical and power engineering aspects
  • Discusses the issues involved in managing the power generated from the ocean and its integration into the power grid
  • Explores the current challenges, future trends, and economic and environmental aspects of these energy conversion technologies
