Non-linear hydrodynamic performance and load modelling of Oscillating Wave Surge Converters

  • Supervisor: Dr David Forehand (University of Edinburgh)
  • Sponsoring company: Aquamarine Power
  • PhD Student: Anna Garcia Teruel

This research project develops a model for multi-objective geometrical optimisation of Wave Energy Converters (WEC) for performance maximisation – based on frequency-domain and time-domain modelling - and minimisation of the levelised cost of energy (LCOE) by considering various factors such as loads on the device, materials, manufacturability, reliability and operability.
