April – June 2017
This project defined a Data Management System (DMS) and user interface solution for use by FORCE.
This work investigates the effect of channel blockage on how axial and cross-flow turbines perform. The objective is to fill a gap in the literature on suitable blockage corrections for cross-flow turbines.
Advancing Tidal Energy Turbine Operations through High Fidelity Tug Propulsion and Control Simulation Software
November 2016 – March 2017
The project objective was to develop a numerical model of a tug boat and its propulsion system to accurately predict its dynamic behaviour in turbulent tidal flows.
Nova Scotia Tidal Research Summary Report – Researching Tidal Energy – Marine Life: The Nova Scotia Experience
October 2015 – May 2016
This report looks at the extensive tidal energy-related research undertaken in the Bay of Fundy over a 10 year period beginning in 2005.
April 2015 – April 2016
A proof-of-concept Geographic Information System (GIS) platform was developed aiming at building a decision-making tool that integrates complex spatial information of importance to the tidal energy industry while also being scalable, flexible and accessible. The platform was built on open source
