Wave energy converter modelling

Wave energy converter research and development is a highly specialised area where knowledge and experience are extremely important. At Applied Renewables Research (ARR) Ltd we have this knowledge and experience developed over more than a combined

35 years of involvement with world-renowned research institutions in this field. ARR Ltd has been actively involved in projects from concept development to the commissioning and deployment of full-scale prototypes. ARR Ltd can contribute to your projects by:

  • Fundamental concept analysis and review
  • Numerical modelling of wave energy converter hydrodynamic and power-train efficiency
  • Specification and design of scale-model testing programmes
  • Management of physical-model testing of wave energy converters
  • Performance analysis of scale-model and prototype data
