Write a Dissertation Topic: Optimisation and Analysis of Oscillating Water Column Wave energy converter to investigate the use of unidirectional air turbines as Power Take Off mechanism Conventional method of oscillating water column wave energy converters use bi directional air turbines to convert wave energy to useful electrical power. My dissertation concentrates on replacing the bi directional turbines by uni directional turbines and analysing its hydrodynamic parameters. – [x] Chapter 1-Introduction This section should cover details on Renewable energy sector Ocean Energy Wave Energy converters Small introduction to Oscillating Water Column – [x] Chapter 2-Literature Review This section should cover detailed review on following topics – [ ] Oscillating Water column – [ ] Unidirectional Air Turbines as PTO Please concentrate on benefits of using uni- directional turbines rather than bi directional air turbines (Comment on efficiency, design simplifications, noise reduction, and other parameters) Please try to compare the parameters in different paragraphs or as different section if possible. The second part of the dissertation is experimentation with a modification to the u shaped oscillating water column and analysis of results.
