Shipboard Propulsion, Power Electronics, and Ocean Energy fills the need for a comprehensive book that covers modern shipboard propulsion and the power electronics and ocean energy technologies that drive it. With a breadth and depth not found in other books, it examines the power electronics systems for ship propulsion and for extracting ocean energy, which are mirror images of each other. Comprised of sixteen chapters, the book is divided into four parts: Power Electronics and Motor Drives explains basic power electronics converters and variable-frequency drives, cooling methods, and quality of power Electric Propulsion Technologies focuses on the electric propulsion of ships using recently developed permanent magnet and superconducting motors, as well as hybrid propulsion using fuel cell, photovoltaic, and wind power Renewable Ocean Energy Technologies explores renewable ocean energy from waves, marine currents, and offshore wind farms System Integration Aspects discusses two aspects—energy storage and system reliability—that are essential for any large-scale power system This timely book evolved from the author’s 30 years of work experience at General Electric, Lockheed Martin, and Westinghouse Electric and 15 years of teaching at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. As a textbook, it is ideal for an elective course at marine and naval academies with engineering programs. It is also a valuable reference for commercial and military shipbuilders, port operators, renewable ocean energy developers, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, researchers, and others interested in modern shipboard power and propulsion systems. The information provided herein does not necessarily represent the view of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy or the U.S. Department of Transportation. This book is a companion to Shipboard Electrical Power Systems (CRC Press, 2011), by the same author.

Ocean Energy Modeling and Simulation with Big Data: Computational Intelligence for System Optimization and Grid Integration offers the fundamental and practical aspects of big data solutions applied to ocean and offshore energy systems. The book explores techniques for assessment of tidal, wave and offshore wind energy systems. It presents the use of data mining software to simulate systems and Hadoop technology to evaluate control systems. The use of Map Reduce algorithms in systems optimization is examined, along with the application of NoSQL in systems management. Actual data collection through web-based applications and social networks is discussed, along with practical applications of recommendations. Introduces computational methods for processing and analyzing data to predict ocean energy system production, assess their efficiency, and ensure their reliable connection to power grids Covers data processing solutions like Hadoop, NoSQL, Map Reduce and Lambda, discussing their applications in ocean energy for system design and optimization Provides practical exercises that demonstrate the concepts explored in each chapter

Engineers’ dreams and fossil energy replacement schemes can come true. Man has been tapping the energy of the sea to provide power for his industries for centuries. Tidal energy combined with that of waves and marine winds rank among those most successfully put the work. Large scale plants are capital intensive but smaller ones, particularly built in China, have proven profitable. Since the initiation of the St Malo project in France, similar projects have gone into active service where methods have been devised to cut down on costs, new types of turbines developed and cost competitiveness considerably improved. Tidal power has enormous potential. The book reviews recent progress in extracting power from the ocean, surveys the history of tidal power harnessing and updates a prior publication by the author.
This book is dedicated to documenting the state of the art in the full range of renewable ocean energy technologies . As will be shown , these vary from mature ( tidal energy extraction to conjectural ( salinity gradients ) with every ...

This report establishes the state of the art in a full range of renewable energy technologies that harness the power of oceans. Papers discuss mature technologies, such as tidal energy extraction, and conjectural technologies, such as salinity gradients. In addition, the economics of the major systems are compared in a uniform manner, making it possible to realistically assess their economic potential. This publication provides a single source of balanced technical and economic assessments of competing technologies and should interest those involved in the search for alternative sources of energy.
umans have experimented with ocean power for many centuries. Europeans used tide mills as early as 787 CE. Tide mills used the rise and fall of the tides to turn a waterwheel. The wheel created mechanical power. This power was used for ...

The waves that animate the surface of the oceans represent a deposit of renewable energy that for the most part is still unexploited today. This is not for lack of effort, as for more than two hundred years inventors, researchers and engineers have struggled to develop processes and systems to recover the energy of the waves. While all of these efforts have failed to converge towards a satisfactory technological solution, the result is a rich scientific and technical literature as well as extensive and varied feedback from experience. For the uninitiated, this abundance is an obstacle. In order to facilitate familiarization with the subject, we propose in this work a summary of the state of knowledge on the potential of wave energy as well as on the processes and technologies of its recovery (wave energy converters). In particular, we focus on the problem of positioning wave energy in the electricity market, the development of wave energy conversion technologies from a historical perspective, and finally the energy performance of the devices. This work is aimed at students, researchers, developers, industry professionals and decision makers who wish to acquire a global perspective and the necessary tools to understand the field. Reviews the state of knowledge and developments on wave energy recovery Presents the history of wave energy recovery Classifies the various systems for recovering this type of energy

It is shown theoretically that the buoy can be designed to have a greater heave response than that of the height of a passing wave resulting in an increase in generated power from the linear generator.
