Wave Energy Prize - 1/20th Testing - SEWEC Attenuator


Data from the 1/20th scale testing data completed on the Wave Energy Prize for the SEWEC team, including the 1/20th scale test plan, raw test data, video, photos, and data analysis results.

The top level objective of the 1/20th scale device testing is to obtain the necessary measurements required for determining Average Climate Capture Width per Characteristic Capital Expenditure (ACE) and the Hydrodynamic Performance Quality (HPQ), key metrics for determining the Wave Energy Prize (WEP) winners.

* Note: During the TG4 judging meeting, the Wave Energy Prize judges reviewed the data collected during the testing of SEWEC's device at Carderock and determined that the data were inconclusive and did not allow an ACE value to be calculated for the device. Consequently, the SEWEC device was deemed ineligible to be considered for the Wave Energy Prize.
