By Sam Porteous, ORE Catapult

This operation report summarises the results and emerging findings to date in developing the EnFAIT Array Interaction Model (AIM) for assessing the effects of turbine array layout on the EnFAIT tidal site. The deployment of sensor systems, designed in T10.7, which have allowed the gathering of data to feed the ongoing development of the AIM tool is discussed, as well as a preliminary PPA (Power Performance Assessment) carried out on the T4 turbine, which will support and feed into the AIM.
