Control design for a hinge-barge wave energy converter

Project Description

The project is funded under the SFI MaREI Centre and is in partnership with the Wave Energy Corporation of America (WECCA).

This project will develop energy maximising control technology for hinge-barge wave energy converters. This will involve the development of suitable control-oriented hydrodynamic models, and the development of appropriate control, wave forecasting and excitation force estimation algorithms.
