Paper presented at the The Thirteenth ISOPE Pacific/Asia Offshore Mechanics Symposium, October 14–17, 2018
Paper Number: ISOPE-P-18-142
... ABSTRACT In the present paper, two types of wave energy converters (WECs) in uni-/multi-directional waves are investigated using a potential-flow model. The first example is a flap-type oscillating wave surge converter (OWSC) which is similar to the configurations of Oyster wave power device...

... is discussed. INTRODUCTION Economic feasibility of the OWC (Oscillating Water Column) WEC (Wave Energy Converter) can be improved by combining it with existing or newly constructed breakwaters. The OWC WEC, which has a sloped chamber with same inclination as the breakwaters, has been developed...

Paper Number: ISOPE-P-18-051
... ABSTRACT Wave Energy Converters (WECs) have excellent potential as a source of renewable energy that is yet to be commercially realised. Recent attention has been focused on the installation of Oscillating Water Column (OWC) devices as part of breakwaters or harbour walls to provide advantages...

... of the float counterweight type wave energy converter in which the float is located in such water chamber (Hadano et al., 2002; Hadano et al., 2006). In this case, since the structure will receive severe wave force, it should be strong and this raises the cost (Koirala et al., 2009). sustainable...

Paper Number: ISOPE-P-10-053
... ABSTRACT: This paper investigates numerically the effect of tension pulley on various physical quantities such as the flattening power output and the cable tension for the float counterweight wave energy converter (Hadano 2006). The tension pulley, a combination of a spring and a pulley...

... design parameters were identified based on numerical results. These findings can be incorporated in the design of an overtopping device to obtain better overtopping performance. INTRODUCTION There are many kinds of wave energy converters. They can be categorized as being one of three basic types...
