Fluid Mechanics of Renewable Energy Resources

You will learn about the fluid mechanics of renewable energy resources: wind, tidal barrage and wave energy. For each you will consider the scale of the resource, how devices interact with the resource to extract power, leading device types and operating modes. You will learn about and derive simple and complex models of interaction with the flow field to demonstrate the principal aspects of device-resource interaction, and thus understand the limits of power extraction for each energy resource.
