Estimation method for evaluating the wave-induced flicker level emitted by a tidal energy farm

Abstract : The inherently fluctuating nature of sea waves can be reflected to a significant extent in the power output of tidal turbines. However, these fluctuations can give rise to power quality issues such as flicker. Hence, it is important to assess the impact which tidal farms may have on their local network before such power plants are allowed to connect to the grid. This paper analyses under which sea-state and grid conditions a 30 MW rated tidal farm breaches the grid code requirements in terms of short-term flicker level. Then, it describes a simplified method for estimating the flicker level by means of an equivalent sinusoidally-modulated voltage profile.
