Abstract

The issue of the global energy crisis requires researchers to seek renewable alternative energy. One technology that can be used as a solution in facing the global energy crisis is tidal energy. This tidal energy is absorbed using a water turbine, one of which is by using the Gorlove Vertical Axis Water Turbine. This study discusses the performance of the TASV Gorlove with NACA0018 blade profiles by adding wavy and vortex generators and is planned to be installed multiple. TASV Gorlove is designed to be built with three blades made of glass fiber reinforced polyester which is twisted at an angle of 120 degrees. Multiple installations are planned using a diamond-shaped joint, which allows for minimal heaving, pitching and yawing movements. Mechanical torque and turbine rotation speed are obtained based on water flow. The results of the experimental study of the maximum experimental torque value were 17.83 Nm, at 30.2 rpm rotation. Because the water flow is conditioned, there is no damage to the connection system. The performance of the turbine and diamond joint system is a new thing applied to multiple TASV Gorlove.
