Title: Numerical Model Development and Validation for the WECCOMP Control Competition: Preprint

Abstract

This paper details the development and validation of a numerical model of the Wavestar wave energy converter (WEC) in WEC-Sim. This numerical model was developed in support of the WEC Control Competition (WECCCOMP), an open competition with the objective of maximizing WEC power production through innovative control strategies. WECCCOMP has two stages: numerical implementation of control strategies, and experimental implementation. The work presented in this paper is for support of the stage one numerical implementation, where contestants are provided a WEC-Sim model of the Wavestar device to develop their control algorithms.
