Abstract / Description of output

Experimental data was obtained in order to investigate the effect of waves on the loads and performance of tidal turbines. An instrumented 1:15 scale tidal turbine was installed in the FloWave Ocean Energy Research Facility, and a wide range of regular wave conditions were generated; systematically varying both wave frequency and height. Waves were generated both following and opposing a fixed mean current velocity of 0.81 m/s. Data are made available of the measured turbine loads and environmental conditions obtained for five repeats of 24 wave conditions via https://doi.org/10.7488/ds/2472. A description of the data collection process, data processing, file structure and naming conventions are provided in this article. The analysis and presentation of the described dataset can be found in Ref. [1].
