We have used the lifting-line code OpenProp for modeling a turbine within a nozzle designed to harness marine currents. Corrections based on actuator disc theory have been implemented to consider the accelerating effect of the nozzle. We have also analyzed the effect of the images of the blade vortices caused by the nozzle.
