Abstract/Summary

Some previous work has made optimistic claims about the potential energy gains that could be made by using pumping with tidal range structures (barrages, lagoons and offshore tidal impoundments). This paper explores the factors influencing whether such gains can be realised for positive head pumping (pumping once water levels have equalised), using 0-D modelling concepts.
