Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) - delta T (Winter Average)

In curation License 

This shapefile represents seasonal winter average delta T estimates.



?T represents the difference in temperature (C) between the warm and cold water sources used by an OTEC plant at a specific location. Warm water is defined uniformly as water at a depth of 20 m, while cold water is defined for each point by locating the depth that leads to the greatest annual net power when each depth and ?T along the thermocline are input into the power equation. This optimization balances power gained by obtaining colder water from deeper locations against power lost by transporting the water upward through a longer pipe.
