As part of the ETI Reliable Data Acquisition for Tidal Platform (ReDAPT) project a multi-year field measurement campaign was carried out, comprising multiple seabed deployments of acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) proximal to an operating 1MW commercial prototype tidal turbine. This dataset comprises two ADCP deployments that targeted the (at the time) recently released IEC TS 62600-200:2013 Power Performance Assessment guidance. The deployment followed the guidance for a Type A implementation, i.e., ADCP instruments positioned inline and upstream of the tidal turbine rotor plane - in this case capturing the ambient flow conditions when the tide approaches the rotor plane from the north west. The data has been re-processed and QC’d under the EC H2020 RealTide project. This dataset supersedes, replaces, the one which can be found at https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/1687. The Dep5 file in this dataset is a new version, and the old one from the earlier dataset should not be used. The files Dep0, Dep1, Dep2 and Dep3 are identical to those in the original dataset.
