Title: Initial results from wave tank test of closed-loop WEC control.

Abstract

This report describes the set up, execution, and some initial results from a series of wave tank tests of a model-scale wave energy converter (WEC) completed in May 2018 at the Navy's Maneuvering and Sea Keeping (MASK) basin. The purpose of these tests was to investigate the implementation and performance of a series of closed-loop WEC power take-off (PTO) controllers, intended to increase energy absorption/generation.
