A power generating system using the low thermal potential available from the vertical temperature distribution of the ocean is analyzed as a combined engineering and economic mathematical model. The model is optimized for minimum capital cost employing a sequential unconstrained minimization algorithm. Examples of the kinds of engineering and cost information available from the model are presented.
