Co-design of controllers in wave energy converters

Matthew Onslow, Adam Stock, David Forehand

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Co-design has been successfully utilised in wind turbines to improve efficiencies and reduce levelised cost of energy (LCoE). Currently, wave energy converter (WEC) controllers are designed once the physical device is mostly finished. Introducing a co-design philosophy to WEC design could help bring down it’s LCoE to competitive levels.
