The power consumption can be greatly reduced by lowering the channel flow velocity at night (Chisti 2012). 3 m s−1 and a further safety factor on power demand should be added (Chisti 2012). The motor and drive should allow a variable speed operation, unless the operational performance of a comparable raceway has been previously confirmed over an extended period (Chisti 2012). The drive mechanism should have a turndown ratio of at least 3:1 (Dodd 1986).
