Description

ABOUT: 

The main objective of this course is to train each participant to the numerical and experimental modelling and control of Wave Energy Converters (WECs).
The following topics will be taught:

  • The State of the Art of wave energy conversion techniques
  • The State of the Art of numerical modelling of WECs, the limitations and the alternative numerical approaches
  • The State of the Art of experimental modelling of WECs, the limitations
  • The State of the Art of control of WECs

By the end of the course, the participants will have carried out the following tasks:

  • Wave measurement and generation in wave tank
  • Numerical investigation of the performance of a WEC
  • Experimental investigation of the performance of a WEC with and without control

The course is arranged by Aalborg University in collaboration with Marinet2.
