UNH-RVAT baseline performance and near-wake measurements

The Reference Vertical Axis Turbine (RVAT) experiments were tidal turbine tests conducted “with a 1 m diameter, 1 m tall three-bladed vertical axis turbine in a towing tank” by Peter Bachant and Martin Wosnik of the Center for Ocean Renewable Energy at the University of New Hampshire. For more info, see their paper.

They have released a repository on GitHub, which contains the processing and plotting code, as well as the derived data set from the UNH-RVAT tow tank measurements performed in Spring 2013: github.com/UNH-CORE/RVAT-baseline
