This bar-code number lets you verify that you're getting exactly the right version or edition of a book. Cited by: Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) generates electricity indirectly from solar energy by harnessing the temperature difference between the sun-warmed surface of tropical oceans and the colder deep waters.

A signiRcant fraction of solar radiation inci-dent on the ocean is retained by seawater in tropical. D.E. Lennard, in Energy: Money, Materials and Engineering, OCEAN THERMAL ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMS. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) has become a serious contender for development as an economic power generation system for the last decade of this century, since the cost of conventional fuels - particularly oil - rose during and from Between now and the 's.

These are primarily ocean currents (specifically western boundary currents), ocean thermal energy conversion, and salinity gradient energy. These forms of ocean energy are introduced and discussed in limited detail in this chapter, in which we outline the main principles, technology types, commercial progress, potential environmental impacts.

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 Ocean thermal energy conversion book lower water layer can be as large as 50 °C (90 °F) over vertical.

One source, ocean thermal energy conversion, has virtually unlimited potential. It is based on techniques that exploit heat produced by solar energy that may, in turn, be used to produce fuel and electricity. This book reviews the status and background of this promising by: Get this from a library.

Ocean thermal energy conversion. [United States. Department of Energy. Office of the Assistant Secretary for Environment.]. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) is a way of getting useful energy from the world's sun shines on the oceans of the world and in the hot parts near]] the water at the sea's surface can be quite warm, sometimes as high as 30°C.

Many oceans are very deep and the water at depths of 1, meters can be around 5 °C. If a pipe is put down into the ocean we can bring the cold.

This would be followed, in 20 to 30. Closed Cycle: Closed cycle Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion systems use a working fluid with a low boiling point, Ammonia for example, and use it to power a turbine to generate seawater is taken in from the surface of the oceans and cold water from the deep at 5 warm seawater vaporizes the fluid in the heat exchanger which then turns the turbines of the generator.

In he wrote the original legislation for ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) when he worked in the U.S. Senate. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between cooler deep water and warmer surface-level water to run a heat engine to produce useful work, usually in the form of electricity.

Finally, case studies of ocean energy sites and devices allow for a better understanding of how ocean energy conversion works in real-world settings.
