DescriptionThis dataset presents a set of turbine loading and performance measurements carried out at the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, around a closely spaced staggered array of three nominally 1:15 scale tidal turbines, with a 1.2m rotor diameter. Measurements were made at different rotation speeds, with the three turbine array compared to just the single rear turbine, logging: streamwise root bending moment in each blade, drive shaft torque, thrust on the rotor, and angular velocity of the rotor.
