OES Task 10 WEC Modelling Verification and Validation


The long-term goals of this task are:
1. To assess the accuracy and establish confidence in the use of numerical WEC models
2. To determine a range of validity of existing computational modelling tools
3. To identify uncertainty related to simulation methodologies in order to:
a. Reduce risk in technology development
b. Improve WEC energy capture estimates
c. Improve loading estimates
d. Reduce uncertainty in LCOE models
4. To define future research and develop methods of verifying and validating the different types of numerical models required depending on the conditions
