Wave resource variability: Impacts on wave power supply over regional to international scales / Helen C.M Smith, Iain Fairley, Bryson Robertson, Mohammad Abusara, Ian Masters

Energy Procedia, Volume: 125, Pages: 240 - 249

Swansea University Author: Ian Masters

Abstract

The intermittent, irregular and variable nature of the wave energy resource has implications for the supply of wave-generated electricity into the grid; intermittency of renewable power may lead to frequency and voltage fluctuations in the transmission and distribution networks. This study analyses...
