WEC

Conceptual Studies

We develop conceptual and performance evaluation studies using a wave-to-wire model, which allows modeling the entire chain of energy conversion from the hydrodynamic interaction until the energy fed into the grid. 

WavEC has been working with several developers, all around the world, at the conceptual level mostly in an attempt to optimize the hydrodynamic characteristics on the concepts. Since 2003 WavEC has been providing this type of services, which eventually has contributed to enlarge the knowledge on floating body’s dynamics.
The performance evaluation of offshore renewable energy systems is nowadays one of the most common activities of the numerical modeling group as investors and developers are frequently interested in an independent evaluation of their concepts. For this purpose an in-house developed wave-to-wire model is used, which allows modeling the entire chain of energy conversion from the hydrodynamic interaction until the energy fed into the grid.
