Numerical Analysis of the Influence of Design Parameters on the Efficiency of an OWC Axial Impulse Turbine for Wave Energy Conversion

Oscillating water column (OWC) axial impulse turbines permit the conversion of wave energy into electrical power. Unlike other hydropower units with a mature and well established technology, such turbines have been recently developed, there are still few prototypes operating and therefore there is a...
