CalWave Device Behavior in Different Sea States from Scaled Tank Testing

Awaiting release License 

This submission contains a summary of tank test derived WEC device behavior in different irregular sea states.

CalWave sought to conduct experimental tank testing of scaled prototype units early on in the design process to obtain a first estimation of device performance for sea states of importance and to perform system identification/PTO tests. These experimental tests primarily aim to assess the wave to structure conversion efficiency and device behavior. Moreover, distinct model parameters of high interest were experimentally tested to validate numerical device modeling and optimization. These tests focused on system identification rather than performance maximization.
