Nonlinear Modeling and Verification of a Heaving Point Absorber for Wave Energy Conversion (2017)
Journal Article
Gilbert, J., Guo, B., Jin, S., Parsons, D., & Patton, R. (2017). Nonlinear Modeling and Verification of a Heaving Point Absorber for Wave Energy Conversion. IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Energy, 9(1), 453-461. https://doi.org/10.1109/tste.2017.2741341

Although the heaving Point Absorber (PA) concept is well known in wave energy conversion research, few studies focus on appropriate modelling of non-linear fluid viscous and mechanical friction dynamics. Even though these concepts are known to have n... Read More
