This report details the logic, algorithms and validation process of a Markov-based model which has been created to provide an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) simulation tool with a realistic time series of weather conditions.

This enables the tool to assess weather windows suitable for marine operation and calculate revenue generated by a wave energy array. The work has stemmed from an Engineering Doctorate sponsored by Wave Energy Scotland in partnership with the Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore Renewable Energy (
