A wave energy workshop will be held in the Glenroyal Hotel, Maynooth on Friday the 20th of January, 2017. Speakers from a wide range of backgrounds will be present do discuss a variety of topics such as:

WEC Design

WEC hydrodynamic modelling

Hydrodynamic WEC modelling in the computation/fidelity continuum

Modelling viscous forces in a computationally efficient way

Evaluation of energy maximising control systems for WECs in CFD

Control of the PTO system of OWCs: feedback vs model predictive control

Fault tolerant control in marine energy systems: a wave energy perspective

Hydrodynamic control with approximate device parameters

WEC experiments and the equations of motion

Experimental modelling and hybrid simulations of axisymmetric point absorbers

Estimation and forecasting for the Wavepower WEC

Instabilities of WECs: good news or bad news?
