INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The Development of New Renewable Energy (EBT) is increasingly a concern. Even the academic circles also contribute to the development of EBT, one of which is the prototype of the sea wave powerhouse by students from the Department of Electrical Engineering Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) Surabaya, named Indonesia Tidal Power (INTIP).

Quoted from ITS's official website, Monday (15/1/2018), the team succeeded in developing the innovation of Oscilating Water Column type wave power generation and wind power system using valve system.

Oscilating Water Column is one of the most desirable technologies of ocean current power generation. Unfortunately, Oscilating Water Column is considered to have a low level of efficiency because the air supply to the generator is not continuous.

Seeing the deficiency, the INTIP valve system makes the system unidirectional, so there is a pressurized air gap that flows freely. The pressurized air is then used to move the wind power plant.

From the test results, the value of voltage generated INTIP has increased by 24 percent compared with conventional technology.

Ghufron Fawaid, Muhammad Rifky Abdul Fattah, Pinayu Rahayu and Aniq Jazilatur, INTIP are expected to develop and apply to coastal areas that have great potential for sea waves, especially to increase electrification ratio in lagging, leading, and outermost areas (3T).

Previously, Indonesia was exploring the development of Marine Flow Power Plant in Larantuka Strait, East Flores, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT).

ESDM Minister Ignasius Jonan said that the development of a marine power plant in the Larantuka Strait can meet the economic value of which the latest price offered by the developer is US $ 7.19 cents per kWh.
