Abstract: There are different under water tidal flow turbines. The investigated turbine design in this paper is a vertical axis turbine with funnels on both sides to direct and control the flow of water onto the turbine. This paper introduces a prototype testing device to control and measure the power generation of the device at different opening angles for the funnel. The aim is to maximize the power generation. The testing device is build and subjected to different testing.


Keywords: Tidal power, Vertical axis turbine, Measurement and control
