Abstract

Based on the main characteristics of second generation tidal power converters (TEC), a review of the present state of the art for this technology is presented herein. The main steps involved in the process of a TEC development (starting from the initial idea up to production) are described. Also, the applications of these devices are described through some significant tests, required according to the readiness level procedures of the technology. Later, the GESMEY second generation TEC and the PROCODAC project are described; whose main objective has been the design, construction and sea trials of a 10 kW prototype. Finally, the objective and design for these tests are explained and the main results from the sea trials of power and operational procedures are shown
