In this regard, the energy losses that may tend to reduce the electrical generator output of each individual hydrokinetic device may be regained simply by operating each hydrokinetic device at a slightly shallower (or deeper) depth and hence slightly higher free stream current speed to produce rated power output using the power control process of the present disclosure.

Accordingly, the capacity factor of the generator may be a function of the frequency of occurrence of a selected speed that most frequently occurs. The drag inducer 112 may be maintained in the fully retracted condition 423 while the rotor 109 remains in operation. Current hydrokinetic devices are typically deployed at a particular depth and maintained at that depth, with variable speed adjustments. The rotor disengage transition process may be complete when the rotor 109 is halted with the blades fully feathered in the non-operational condition 414, and the drag flaps 112 are deployed to the high drag condition 413. The hydrokinetic device 100 remains idle with no power production and is maintained at a position 410 by the control authority of the weight, lift and drag effectors implemented by, for example, the ballast tanks, the wing 106 and the drag flaps 112, respectively. When the error signal is zero or near zero, the method may further comprise exchanging lift for weight in equal amounts to minimize flow disturbances.

If the power error signal Err remains greater than zero, considerable ascent may have occurred and the hydrokinetic device may be nearing the surface. In FIG. 1C, the ADCP resource data indicates a single maxima at a single free stream current speed that occurs most frequently at any depth in the vertical water column (referred to as the single maxima speed). For example, the methods of the present disclosure may match a energy transducer capture area (for example, a rotor swept area) and a rated generator power level to reach rated power at a single free stream current speed that occurs most frequently in the vertical water column. The system may further comprise an onboard communicator that is configured to send the actual generator power output level to a station, and to receive an individual power modulation factor from the station. The method may further comprise: receiving an individual power modulation factor from a station, wherein the depth of the hydrokinetic device is further adjusted based on the individual power modulation factor.

The individual power modulation factor may be generated based on a target aggregate power output level for all of the hydrokinetic devices in the array of hydrokinetic devices and an actual aggregate power output level for all of the hydrokinetic devices in the array of hydrokinetic devices. The commands may be issued, for example, by the THOR HQ, or internally generated by the THOR controller as will be described. If the hydrokinetic device rises above the minimum rotor cavitation depth (YES at Step 815), the THOR controller may interrupt the execution of the power control process 800 and may then execute the disengage rotor transition process (Step 830), followed by the idle process (Step 831), followed by the ADCP query process (Step 832). The ADCP query process may use the onboard ADCP to probe the vertical water column to determine when the free stream current speeds are favorable for continued power production.
In the rotor disengage transition process, the rotor 109 is transitioned from the engaged operational condition 424 to the disengaged non-operational condition 414, which may dramatically decrease drag as the rotor blade pitch angles approach the non-operational fully feathered condition 404 and hence the drag force and the drowning force may be progressively withdrawn. Rotor engagement or disengagement may occur via the rotor engage transition process or the rotor disengage transition process, respectively. Dolor de ingle y pierna . The energy transducer may further include a mechanism to engage or disengage with the fluid flow, which may include for example, disengaging form the flow by closing off the entire capture area of the transducer thereby rejecting all incident kinetic energy of the flow or engaging to the flow by opening any previously inactive regions of the capture area.
Examples of ocean currents include the Gulf Stream, the Humboldt, the Kuroshio, the Agulhas and others. As previously noted, the energy transducer change effector may include a rotor blade pitch angle change effector. The variable weight effector may include, for example, one or more interior ballast tanks (not shown) located in the hull 101, which can be alternately flooded or purged with water to adjust the weight, as well as the location of the center of gravity of the hydrokinetic device 100. The hull 101 may provide the main source of buoyancy for the hydrokinetic device 100. Hydrokinetic device 100 may further include the weighted ventral keel 105, which may provide directional alignment and promote yawing of the hydrokinetic device 100 into a free stream current direction.
As the angle of the mooring cable with a current flow vector (horizontal axis), referred to as the intercept angle, becomes steeper (larger) or shallower (smaller) when the hydrokinetic device changes depth, and along with other factors to be discussed, the drowning force alters the vertical force balance and the hydrokinetic device may not necessarily return to the depth at which the rated speed occurs (“rated speed depth”). In an effort not to over-torque an onboard generator and risk damage to the generator and power drive train mechanisms, the state of the art pitch regulated horizontal axis rotor devices typically employ a variable pitch control rotor hub that changes the pitch angle of the rotor blades at speeds above the rated speed, thereby shedding and relinquishing power to maintain the generator at the rated power (for example, between points “1” and “2”). The onboard main controller (for example, “THOR controller”) may include a transmitter, receiver, or transceiver (not shown).
The onboard controller may be further configured to (iv) monitor a plurality of parameters, (v) compare each of the plurality of parameters to preset limits established for each of said plurality of parameters, and (vi) invoke a fault condition when one or more of the plurality of parameters exceed the preset limits established for said one or more of the plurality of parameters. As noted earlier, the hydrokinetic device 100, when tethered to the upstream mooring cables (or lines) 103, experiences both forward and downward force components.
