Abstract This paper presents a high efficiency two quadrant controller design for a Brushless DC Machine (BDCM) used in a kinetic tidal generator. Phase switching is performed by a synchronous rectifier and an actively clamped resonant dc link buck converter is used for stator current control. A digital controller is used to maintain the optimum tip speed ratio of the water turbine, maximising tbe output power of the generator.
