Abstract [en]

In this project, the wave energy converter (WEC) designed at Seabased AB and Uppsala University was modelled in the program MATLAB. In order to increase the average output power, the WEC should be controlled. Therefore, the simulation tool was used to investigate damping strategies where the damping coefficient was changed at different times of the wave period. The tests showed that a suitable damping strategy, matched to the sea state at the specific location of the site and the overall WEC design, increases the average output power, as well as may protect the WEC from damages. This can lead to a more sustainable WEC system, which may contribute to the increasing demand of renewable energy solutions.
