Ocean Thermal: Energy Conversion 1st Edition by Patrick Takahashi (Author), Andrew Trenka (Author) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important.

ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. Cited by: Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) generates electricity indirectly from solar energy by harnessing the temperature difference between the sun-warmed surface of tropical oceans and the colder deep waters.

A signiRcant fraction of solar radiation inci-dent on the ocean is retained by seawater in tropical. D.E. Lennard, in Energy: Money, Materials and Engineering, OCEAN THERMAL ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMS. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) has become a serious contender for development as an economic power generation system for the last decade of this century, since the cost of conventional fuels - particularly oil - rose during and from Between now and the 's.

These are primarily ocean currents (specifically western boundary currents), ocean thermal energy conversion, and salinity gradient energy. These forms of ocean energy are introduced and discussed in Ocean thermal energy conversion book detail in this chapter, in which we outline the main principles, technology types, commercial progress, potential environmental impacts.

I'm talking about geothermal electricity production and Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). Both of these forms of power generation use the same principles.

Basically, they convert a "working fluid" into a vapor and use the expansion to turn a turbine which turns the generator.

transform the thermal energy into electricity. This is referred to as OTEC for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. At first, OTEC plantships providing electricity, via submarine power cables, to shore stations could be implemented.

This would be followed, in 20 to 30. Genre/Form: Bibliography: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Lockerby, Robert W. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC). Monticello, Ill.: Vance. In he wrote the original legislation for ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) when he worked in the U.S.

Senate. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between cooler deep water and warmer surface-level water to run a heat engine to produce useful work, usually in the form of electricity.

Finally, case studies of ocean energy sites and devices allow for a better understanding of how ocean energy conversion works in real-world settings. This book is an invaluable resource for students at graduate and senior undergraduate level engineering (ocean, mechanical, and civil) and oceanography with prior knowledge of fluid mechanics and.
