Tidal velocity measurements at turbine rotor height and with turbine blade resolution
Presented by Dr. Joel Culina, Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE)

At tidal turbine sites, velocity measurements at turbine rotor height are typically derived from a diverging-beam acoustic Doppler profiler (ADP). The Vectron was developed as a wide-baseline, converging-beam acoustic Doppler profiler, to enable velocity measurements at both turbine rotor height and with turbine blade resolution. In this presentation data from the Vectron and co-located ADP collected at a tidal energy site are compared with respect to IEC-relevant metrics. A discussion follows on the potential for wide utilization of the Vectron.
