MASK3 for Advanced WEC Dynamics and Controls

Publicly accessible License 

This report outlines the "MASK3" wave tank test within the Advanced WEC Dynamics and Controls (AWDC) project. This test represents the final test in the AWDC project. The focus of the MASK3 test was to consider coordinated 3-degree-of-freedom (3DOF) control of a WEC in a realistic ocean environment. A key aspect of this test was the inclusion of a "self-tuning" mechanism which uses an optimization algorithm to update controller gains based on a changing sea state. The successful implementation of the self-tuning mechanism is the last crucial step required for such a controller to be implemented in real ocean environments.
