||The Performance Assessment of Wave and Tidal Array Systems (PerAWaT) project, launched in October 2009 with £8m of ETI investment. The project delivered validated, commercial software tools capable of significantly reducing the levels of uncertainty associated with predicting the energy yield of major wave and tidal stream energy arrays. It also produced information that will help reduce commercial risk of future large scale wave and tidal array developments.
This report is the third deliverable of Work Group 3 Work Package 3 of this project (WG3 WP3 D3). In this work package, EDF R&D adapted the numerical tools developed internally; Telemac-2D and Telemac-3D, in order to model tidal farm performance and wake at large scales. This document presents the methodology used to model different tidal farm configurations on the three sites modelled in WG3 WP3 D1; Paimpol-Bréhat, the Alderney Race, and the Pentland Firth. This methodology is then followed by descriptions of the tidal farm configurations chosen for each site as well as a description of the flow modelled. This deliverable also provides result for cross comparison and validation of WG3 WP6 and WG3 WP4
