This presentation provides information regarding the impact of Turbulence on the Control
of a Hydrokinetic Turbine. It contains information regarding the motivation, the analyzed turbine – US DOE RM2, Turbine dynamics, Linearization at Operating point, Linearized Dynamic System, the open-Loop Response using transfer functions, the fixed-pitch turbine control, the magnitude and phase response, other drivers of response, the turbulence of a tidal channel, turbulence and turbine response, the implications for control, and finally the conclusions.
