Ocean Energy Conversion: Fundamentals, Technology Development and Optimization presents the collective knowledge of Professors Lewis, Alcorn and Sheng who draw on their 60 combined years of experience in the field to present the basic theory and applications necessary to measure, quantify and convert ocean resources into useful energy. Sections include an overview of the history and potential of ocean energy, wave and tidal resources, climate, world distribution and industry standards. In addition, the principles of energy conversion from waves and tides are covered, including interface, interactions, devices, optimization, control and real-life examples, currents and ocean circulation, and ocean thermal and salinity gradient. Engineering researchers and professionals will find this to be a go-to reference, especially with its mathematical analysis for designing and deploying ocean energy devices and energy systems. It assumes prior knowledge in mathematics and physics and gives a comprehensive understanding of the mechanisms of ocean energy converters and corresponding resources in a way that is accessible to graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and professionals in industry short courses.
