Ocean Thermal: Energy Conversion 1st Edition by Patrick Takahashi (Author), Andrew Trenka (Author) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important. ISBN. This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. Cited by: Economic, social and environmental issues in the commercialization of OTEC are addressed, assuming technical feasibility and cost competitiveness, at least in certain areas.

The market potential of OTEC on U.S. islands and in near-shore regions of the mainland is assessed and the economics of commercialization are considered.

It is concluded that the private ownership of OTEC Cited by: 7. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC), form of energy conversion that makes use of the temperature differential between the warm surface waters of the oceans, heated by solar radiation, and the deeper cold waters to generate power in a conventional heat engine.

The difference in temperature between the surface and the lower water layer can be as large as 50 °C (90 °F) over vertical. The paper will cover the projected costs of the plant together with such issues as environmental im- pact -- energy utilization -- critical technology and commercialization constraints and incentives.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) & Wave Energy Conversion (WEC) for Pacific Island Nations & Asian Developing Nations. Luis A. Vega, Ph.D. University of Hawaii. INTRODUCTION A description of OTEC technology follows.

Figure 1 shows a schematic of the power cycle. Warm sea water (~25) is pumped into a large evaporator to produce ammonia vapor. The vapor is fed into a turbogenerator where it parts with some of its thermal energy to produce electricity at the generator terminals.

Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion systems take advantage of the small difference in temperature between the ocean’s surface and depths that is found at certain locations. This temperature gradient can be used to generate power using specialised equipment; however at this time the technology is still at the relatively early stages of development.

In tropical regions, surface water can be much warmer than deep water. This temperature difference can be used to produce electricity and to desalinate ocean water. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) systems use a temperature difference (of at least 77° Fahrenheit) to power a turbine to produce electricity.

higher temperature energy sources, are theoretically capable of converting more than 60% of the extracted thermal energy into electricity. The low energy conversion efRciency of OTEC means that more than 90% of the thermal energy extracted from the ocean’s surface is ‘wasted’ and must be rejected to the cold, deep sea water.

This. The stored thermal energy in the top meter depth is more than two years of delivered solar energy, at % conversion efficiency, the stored energy is sufficient years of human use.

The stored thermal energy is completely renewable so that ocean thermal energy use will not reduced the stored energy quantity. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a renewable energy technology applicable to tropical and subtropical areas that works by recovering solar energy absorbed by the ocean.

Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a very promising source of clean and renewable energy for our planet. This review article presents the research and developments on. energy in tropical costal regions that have high shipping costs for fuels and foods.
