Wave Energy Scotland are involved in ongoing international collaborations on the development of metrics to be used across the ocean energy sector. A number of workshops have been held and the outputs are available here.View Details
This IDCORE project has investigated the application of reinforcement learning and neural networks to the control of a point absorber. In particular, approaches with static sea states have been analysed. The controllers are proved to be adaptive to changes in wave conditions and system dynamics.
