TEAMER Facility Type Numerical Modeling & Analysis
TEAMER Capability Control systems engineering support, IEC technical specification design, Mooring dynamics simulation, Power performance modeling, Turbine hydrodynamics, Array integration modeling, Environmental modeling
TEAMER Description SNMREC has a large suit of tools, data and expertise in its research portfolio including Blade Element Momentum (BEM)- based simulators that can be used to predict the performance/response of axial flow marine current turbines, with NREL’s FAST code typically used for bottom-mounted turbines and an in-house developed code typically used for moored turbines. Faults can be modeled within these numerical simulations for system health monitoring or control system development. Further, professional data analytics tools are available for turbine and system performance analysis and visualization. Numerical grid emulation and energy storage tools are also available for investigating the integration of MHK generated electrical power into the grid. Capabilities include: Control systems engineering support, IEC technical specification design, Mooring dynamics simulation, Power performance modeling, Turbine hydrodynamics, Array integration modeling, Environmental modeling.
