Centipod WEC, Survivable Wave Energy Converters, Final Technical Report


This project shows that the choice of a secondary DOF for survivability is a viable option to reduce the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) in WEC designs. This report will cover the calculation of the concluded LCOE advantage using Dehlsen Associates? ?Centipod? WEC, but will also discuss the entire project from start to finish, including mid and high-fidelity modeling, survival mode trade study, wave basin testing, and design tool cross-verification and validation.
