Title: Triton Point Absorber 1:30 Scale Tank Test Data for Extreme Wave Environments

Abstract

This content model summarizes laboratory testing data for the Oscilla Power Triton WEC conducted at 1:30 scale. The WEC was tested in large operational waves and in extreme wave conditions along the 1 in 50 year wave contour at the DoE reference location in Humbolt Bay, CA. The WEC was tested in both its operational configuration and its survival configuration. The aims of the dataset are (i) To demonstrate that the survival strategy developed for the Triton WEC improves survivability and reduces loads in extreme wave environments, and (ii) To determine the ultimate design loads for the WEC.
