Azura Advanced Controls 1/15th Scale Wave Tank Testing


Experimental data from the wave tank test of the Advanced control systems developed by Northwest Energy Innovations (NWEI) for the Azura at the University of Maine in Orono (UMO). Summary data is included utilizing the WEC Lab Testing Content Model v2.1. All raw and processed experimental data files are also included. The test plan and test report are included, along with the test plan and the test report from prior, passively controlled tests of the same model for reference.
