      • CHA03 - GUIHOME: where should I place my tidal turbine?

          • GUINARD-ENERGIES-NOUVELLES is a french start-up located in Brest and specialised in compact tidal turbine design. Leading energy projects requires to rely on efficient tools to get a prompt site characterization for tidal turbine setting up.

            Consequently, GUINARD-ENERGIES-NOUVELLES needs an easy handling software, able to open, process, visualize and analyse bathymetric and hydrodynamic datasets. The first-version of a graphical user interface nammed GUIHOME was developed during a 3-month internship and supplies several visualization tools such as: 2D cartographic views, surface profiles along polylines, temporal graphs and animations for speed flow studies. Finally, an algorithm dedicated to location research delivers to the user an assistance to choose the optimum place in order to set up the tidal turbine, assuring structure stability and energetic performance.

            In this respect, we want to improve and expand GUIHOME features in order to make it even more user-friendly.

          • What the challenge owner would like to develop over 48h
          • A new version of GUIHOME tools which includes, at least one of these features:
            - larger input files format (open source data)
            - addition of temporal speed flow data during positioning computation
            - interpolation of speed flow data for adjustable tidal range
            - computation of energetic power produced by the tidal turbine
          • Which skills the challenge owner is looking for
          • GIS expertise (GRASS GIS)
            Python development
            Hydrographic and Oceanographic fondness
            Hydrodynamic and energetic knowledge
