Layout Optimisation of Wave Energy Converter Arrays
This paper proposes an optimisation strategy for the layout design of wave energy converter (WEC) arrays. Optimal layouts are sought so as to maximise the absorbed power given a minimum q-factor, the minimum distance between ...
A numerical study on the hydrodynamic impact of device slenderness and array size in wave energy farms in realistic wave climates
The future of wave energy converters lies in the design and realization of farms comprising of several devices, given the level of actual power flow for the individual devices and because of several operational issues. ...
