Annual Conference 2016
Wave Energy Control in Practice - Ross Henderson
Wave Energy Scotland Ltd
The inaugural Wave Energy Scotland (WES) Annual Conference took place on Friday 2nd December in Edinburgh. The one day conference was designed to inform delegates on the progress of the WES programme since its establishment in 2014. There were 30 projects running at the time, with a focus on Power Take Off (PTO) and Novel Wave Energy Converter (NWEC) programmes. The day gave delegates a chance to meet organisations involved in the WES programme and hear progress in the various projects.
The slides here are from a presentation by Ross Henderson (Quoceant Ltd) discussing the subject of control of wave energy converters, drawing on content of the landscaping study carried out in 2016 lead by the Offshore Renewable energy Catapult. The report from this landscaping study is also available. The results of this landscaping study were used as additional information for the Control System Call released by WES in April 2017.
