Austin Griffin presented “Experimental identification of reduced order model parameters for hydrokinetic energy system design” at the ASME IMECE 2023

Austin Griffin presented “Experimental identification of reduced order model parameters for hydrokinetic energy system design” (Technical Presentation) at the ASME IMECE 2023. [BibTeX] Abstract This study presents the ongoing development of experimental validation and identification of the reduced order model (ROM) parameters for the horizontal axis hydrokinetic turbine (HAHkT) in the context of design optimization. It is crucial to optimize the HAHkT scale, external and internal geometry, rotor and blade design, and control scheme simultaneously to achieve cost-efficient energy conversion. …
