The oceans around the world offer a large source for energy that is yet to be exploited and in particular tidal or marine currents with peak flows over five knots (2.5m/s) offer a good proposition for the extraction of predictable energy. Several devices are currently being promoted for marine current energy conversion; few of these will be installed within the next 2 years around the UK coasts. The majority of the leading designs are based on the horizontal axis wind turbine principles. This paper is a review of the authors’ current work in the field. The work compares hydrodynamic experiments at 1/20th scale of a 16m horizontal axis marine current turbines in various flow conditions with numerical models. As an example of how to match a marine current turbine to resource the results have been used to compare various designs at suitable UK tidal site, Portland Bill.
