Linear diffraction analysis for optimisation of the three-float multi-mode wave energy converter M4 in regular waves including small arrays

Abstract:

A general frequency domain dynamic model based on the DIFFRACT code has been developed to predict the motion and power generation of the three-float multi-mode wave energy converter M4, modelled as a two-body problem. The machine has previously been shown experimentally and numerically to have broad-band high capture widths for the range of wave periods typical of offshore sites. The float sizes increase from bow to stern; the bow and mid float are rigidly connected by a beam and the stern fl...
