The usage of tidal energy conversion benefits from the fact that tides can be predicted at a higher level of accuracy compared to wind and solar resources. This is important in the context of smart grid operation. To better understand the interaction of tidal energy conversion systems (TECS) when integrated in a smart grid, simulation can provide a valuable resource for analysis. Two types of simulation are discussed in this contribution. The first type concerns the power generation curves. Information about power is for example important for scheduling in the smart grid. The second type concerns voltage and current waveforms. This is for example important for studying fault transients. These issues will be discussed, and guidelines for the modeling will be given.
