    Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Introduction. Ocean thermal energy conversion, or OTEC, uses seawater to turn solar energy into electricity. It relies on the ocean’s thermal gradient - the temperature decline from the sun-warmed waters on the surface to the cold waters found at great depths. What is OTEC Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a marine renewable energy technology that harnesses the solar energy absorbed by the oceans to generate electric power. The sun’s heat warms the surface water a lot more than the deep ocean water, which creates the ocean’s naturally available temperature gradient, or thermal energy.

    Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion is a process using the heat energy that is stored in the ocean. The oceans collect a huge amount of the world’s heat energy. OTEC uses the heat differences between deep and shallow ocean waters to evaporate a fluid to run a steam turbine and generate.   Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Systems 1.

Engineering College Bikaner Submitted by: Naveen Kumar Saini IV Year, EI&CE (11EEBEI) 2.

    Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) makes use of the temperature differences between the deep cold and relatively warmer surface waters of the ocean to generate a constant, clean source of electricity. This constancy differs from the output of renewable resources such as wind and wave energy that sometimes produce intermittent electricity.   Vishwakarma Institute of Technology, Pune, B Tech Mechanical Engineering 14 CONCLUSION Ocean thermal energy conversion is a potential source of renewable energy that creates no emissions i.e. it is fuel free. It has a low environmental impact, can supply pure water for both drinking and agriculture purposes. Can supply refrigeration and cooling.

This study included the development of a preliminary design for a Modular Application scaled power system (10MWe) and Heat Exchanger Test Articles, both based on the concept. 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 the lower water layer can be as large as 50 °C (90 °F) over vertical. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion Karen Anne Finney University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, Canada Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a process that employs the natural temperature difference between the surface and the depths of the ocean.

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.

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.

What is OTEC. Ocean thermal energy conversion (OTEC) uses the temperature difference between cooler deep and warmer shallow or surface seawaters to run a heat engine and produce useful work, usually in the form of electricity. Yes, it is true that. transform the thermal energy into electricity.

This is referred to as OTEC for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion. At first, OTEC plantships providing electricity, via submarine power cables, to shore stations could be implemented.

This would be followed, in 20 to 30. Actual ocean thermal energy conversion efficiency at any location is likely to be around 3 %. When OTEC is implemented in 5 % of the earth surface area (which is 7% of the ocean covered area,less than 15 % of the tropical ocean area), the 3% conversion efficiency will be sufficient to provide energy at % of the total solar energy level.
