Abstract

This study investigates the dynamics and energy production of a new offshore floating renewable energy system, which integrates an offshore floating wind turbine (OFWT), a wave energy converter (WEC) and two tidal turbines. The hybrid concept is proposed to enhance the energy production through the combination of the three types of renewable energy systems. Simulation results show that the combined concept achieves a synergy between the floating wind turbine, the wave energy converter and the tidal turbines. Compared with a single floating wind turbine, the combined concept undertakes reduced surge and pitch motions. The overall power production increases by approximately 15%.
