- Wave Energy Converter Modeling

Kelley Ruehl, David Ogden

Research output: NRELPresentation


The Wave Energy Converter (WEC) Modeling Project began in 2013 with the aim of driving innovation and advancing the state of the wave energy industry by developing publicly available, easy to use software that's customizable to meet end user needs. This project is primarily focused on development of open source software for numerical design and analysis of wave energy converters (WEC), and it also supports international collaboration on standards (IEC TC 114), code verification and validation (IEA OES Task 10) and a competition (WECCCOMP).
