DC-Connected Hybrid Offshore-wind and Tidal-Turbine (HOTT) Generation System

This article describes a ‘Hybrid Offshore-wind and Tidal-Turbine’ (HOTT) generating system, which uses an interconnecting method to link a DC-side cluster of wind and tidal turbine generators. An interconnected combination of four tidal and one wind turbine generators is proposed, and it is anticipated that this will give an electrical output of high reliability and quality. This method is able to send generated power through a long-distance DC transmission.
