Thesis work: Design and optimization of the SeaTwirl 1:50 prototype.
wind energy. SeaTwirl is using water as bearings
and can therefore function as a very large flywheel.
The main advantages of the SeaTwirl are simplicity,
the advantage of using sheep materials and the
energy storage capacity. SeaTwirl therefore has the
potential to stand as a common provider of energy
and short time energy storage in a future
sustainable society. SeaTwirl is developed by the
small company Ehrnberg Solutions AB. The
company will during spring 2011 build and test the
SeaTwirl 1:50 prototype on basis of this thesis. The
prototype will have a height of about 10m and
sweep area of 18m2.

The student/s is to perform theoretical calculations
of the SeaTwirl prototype energy storage capacity
and energy production. After the theoretical model is
validated it is used to optimize the power plant.
Friction will in this stage combined whit the
geometry of the power plant play a vital role.
The thesis is to provide the answer to the following
• what is the optimal geometry and dimensions of a
1:50 prototype and what materials should be used?
• how much energy will this prototype be able to
produce and store (short time storage)?
• how will the energy storage function during hours
or days? How should this functionality be used?
The thesis can be performed individually or by two
students. The student/s will have a supervisor at the
university, and at Ehrnberg Solutions AB. To qualify,
you should have knowledge about physics, fluid
mechanics and an interest in renewable energy is
advantageous. Final report shall be in English.
