TC 114 - Marine energy - Wave, tidal and other water current converters - Part 200: Electricity producing tidal energy converters - Power performance assessment
IEC/TS 62600-200:2013(E) provides the following items:
- 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.
