The development of marine current turbine arrays depends on the understanding of the interaction effects that exist between turbines in close proximity. Moreover, the ambient turbulence intensity also plays a major role in the behaviour of tidal turbines. Thus it is necessary to take ambient turbulence into account when studying interactions between several turbines. In order to highlight these interaction effects, experiments were carried out in the IFREMER flume tank of Boulogne-sur-mer (France).
