DTOcean: Comparative with Design

Published: 18 December 2018

This document presents the preliminary outputs from the DTOcean suite of tools. A comparison of DTOcean outputs with the actual array design choices made by Nova Innovation (Nova) is provided in this document, and summarised in section 5. The aim of this comparison is to provide a baseline assessment of DTOcean: insights gained from the design decisions made by Nova in deploying an existing array will be incorporated in the next versions of the DTOcean tool design.
