Subsea Tidal Generators
Please contact us to discuss your submersible electric motor, subsea electric motor, ROV electric Subsea Submersible motors and ROV HPU's.
SME design, manufacture, and supply, submersible electric motors, SUBSEA and ROV electric motors for all SUBSEA equipment. ROV HPUs, submersible electric motors for sump pumps, and any special purpose submersible electric motor requirements.
SME also offer SUBSEA electric generators for Tidal Power Generation.
Subsea Electric Generators for Tidal Generation. Induction Generators or slow speed Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators up to 500kW.
SME. Tidal Generation Projects completed.
We have built several Tidal Generators for various applications and all are very different, and subject to Confidentiality Clauses.
We have designs up to 1MW.
Subsea Electric Generators.
Subsea Generators can be air filled for optimum efficiency and are suitable for depths down to 30 metres.
Induction Generators can be supplied for 2P, 4P, 6P, 8P, and 10P operation usually close coupled to a gear box. (The efficiency and PF are poor for Induction Generators with more than 10 Poles).
Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generators can be supplied with very low speeds and 40 poles or 60 poles for nominal 20 RPM operation, which negates the need for a gearbox. These generators can have high efficiency up to 95% and they have unity Power Factor. Because of the number of poles these generators tend to be quite large in Diameter - typically more than 1 metre.
If Subsea Generators are to be used at depths below 30 metres it is recommended that they are oil filled and compensated - but the mechanical losses will be about 3% due to the extra friction from the oil.
