Abstract

The use of tidal energy as a renewable energy source has yet to develop in the same rate as Solar and Wind energy technologies. Currently, most tidal energy applications are only focused on large scale installations and thus, with our project we wanted to explore the possibility of implementing a tidal energy monitoring system on a small-scale basis. In this project, we created a production design of a tidal energy monitoring system comprised of multiple underwater sensing devices. Our project, a proof of concept device for a potential production design, demonstrates the constraints in the tidal energy space and aims to encourage more research and development in the field.
