International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

TC 114

Marine energy - Wave, tidal and other water current converters


TC 114 Scope

TC 114

To prepare international standards for marine energy conversion systems. The primary focus will be on conversion of wave, tidal and other water current energy into electrical energy, although other conversion methods, systems and products are included. Tidal barrage and dam installations, as covered by TC 4, are excluded.

The standards produced by TC 114 will address:

- system definitions;

- management plan for technology and project development;

- performance measurements of wave, tidal and water current energy converters;

- resource assessment requirements;

- design and safety including reliability and survivability;

- deployment, operation, maintenance and retrieval;

- commissioning and decommissioning;

- electrical interface, including array integration and / or grid integration;

- testing: laboratory, manufacturing and factory acceptance;

- measurement methodologies of physical parameters of the device.
