Experimental Testing of a Floating Oscillating Surge Wave Energy Converter at Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory

Publicly accessible License 

In order to generate a public data set that can be used to validate Wave Energy Converter (WEC) numerical codes, such as WEC-Sim, Sandia National Laboratories led an experimental testing campaign of a 1:33 scale Floating Oscillating Surge Wave Energy Converter (FOSWEC) in the Directional Wave Basin at Oregon State University's Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory. Testing was performed in two phases; Phase 1 testing was completed in November - December 2015, and Phase 2 testing was completed in May - June 2016. This experimental testing report details the selection and design of a FOSWEC, experimental setup and tests, and overview of the resulting dataset from Phase 1 and Phase 2 testing.
