The Computer Controlled Ocean Thermal Energy Unit, “ETMC”, unit is designed for simulating an energy generation system that extracts the thermal energy from the upper layers of the ocean, using them as the hot focus of a thermal cycle and the deep layers as the cold focus.
The basic principle of this system is the use of a heat engine that converts thermal energy into mechanical work through the temperature gradient between a “heat source” and a “heat sink”. The temperature difference is used to evaporate and condense a working fluid to drive a turbine – generator to produce electricity.
This unit mainly consists of:
This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
