Abstract

Numerical modelling of wave power devices is becoming a partial alternative to tank model testing. It offers time effectiveness and versatility which make it attractive for optimisation purposes. The Wave Power Group at the University of Edinburgh is currently using WAMIT 6.03 for numerical modelling of a wave power device known as the sloped IPS buoy. The present paper deals with the numerical modelling of a single degree of freedom configuration of the sloped IPS buoy in regular waves. Comparisons between experimental data and numerical predictions are established for the hydrodynamic impedance, the wave exciting force and the efficiency of the device. A wider range of configurations is then explored.
