Characterization of hydrokinetic ressources in the Channel and study of the impact of turbulence on the efficiency of tidal energy systems 

PhD thesis of Université du Littoral Côté d’Opale  (2014-2017)

Supervision: A. Sentchev; Co-supervision: F. G. Schmitt

This work is done in the framework of the European Interreg IVB NW Europe project «Pro-Tide». The main objective of the thesis will be to perform on site measurements in different locations in the English Channel. Another aspect of the work will be to determine the influence of turbulence on power outputs for different tidal energy systems.
