Tidal data

Tidal data

We measure tidal power generation by comparing the real-time power generated against the tidal flow to assess the performance of tidal energy converters.

Seabed mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) are used to acquire current and wave data for the Fall of Warness test site. The instruments measure the velocity and direction of current at high vertical resolution and high frequency sampling.

As well as the hydrodynamic conditions, weather data is gathered from an onshore meteorological station on Eday. The measurement of electrical power supplied to the grid via the substation allows the assessment of the performance of each device.
