FOCUS6 Tidal

FOCUS6 Tidal consists of all general features and options of FOCUS6 for wind turbine design with special additions for tidal stream turbines. The integrated modular tool FOCUS6 integrates various tools into one consistent user interface and provides consistent data. Without the need of manually converting data between tools during the design process, a shorter turnaround time can be achieved while reducing the risk of errors and inconsistent data. FOCUS6 uses a database, allowing concurrent design by multiple designers and tracking of design changes.
