WEC numerical model
Contestants will be provided a WEC-Sim model of the WaveStar device in Stage 1 of the control competition. The WEC-Sim model solves for the WaveStar’s dynamic response when subject to incident waves, and provides an interface for development of the controller. Details about the WEC-Sim WaveStar model can be found on the WECCCOMP GitHub repository.
The open source Wave Energy Converter Simulator (WEC-Sim) code is available on the WEC-Sim GitHub repository:
