In this paper, the performance of a horizontal axis, 3-blade tidal turbine is predicted by a vortex lattice method, in which the fully unsteady wake alignment is utilized to model the trailing wake geometry. A blade design procedure, which combines a lifting line approach with the vortex lattice analysis method and a nonlinear optimization scheme, is proposed.
