Video Introduction:

Harnessing renewable energy is a key pillar for our society to become sustainable and more equative on our path to a clean, carbon-free economy. Hydrokinetic turbines are a promising technology in a development stage that can become an affordable, suitable solution for extracting kinetic energy from tidal flows and rivers. Our research focuses on understanding the hydrodynamics of the wakes generated by vertical and horizontal axis turbines deployed in arrays, aiming to maximise their energy-generation capabilities and thus reduce costs. For this, we have undertaken laboratory experiments and performed high-resolution Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) which allowed to investigate the intrinsic complexities of turbulence within these flows.
