Abstract

The data described in this article was obtained from experimental tank testing of a 1:15 scale tidal stream turbine subject to a range of regular wave conditions in the presence of a fixed mean current velocity. Waves are generated both following and opposing the current direction, and wave frequencies and amplitudes are systematically varied. Turbine load data, along with corresponding surface elevations and velocity measurements are provided.
