Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The ability to handle data is critical at all stages of marine energy (ME) development. The marine hydrokinetic toolkit (MHKiT) is an open-source marine energy software, which includes modules for ingesting, applying quality control, processing, visualizing, and managing data. MHKiT-Python and MHKiT-MATLAB provide robust and verified functions that are needed by the ME community to standardize data processing. Calculations and visualizations adhere to International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) technical specifications and other guidelines. A resource assessment of NDBC buoy 46050 near PACWAVE is performed using MHKiT and discusses comparisons to the resource assessment provided performed by Dunkel et al.
