Abstrakt

The purpose of this paper is to examine the hydrodynamics around floating wave energy converters (f-WECs). In particular, the paper considers the case of the f-WEC of the Wave Activated Body type, named DEXA. Based on 3D wave experiments in the Laboratory of the Aalborg University (DK), the modified wave field around a wave energy farm (composed by three 1:60 scale models) and around a single device (1:30 scale model) is investigated. Specific results include wave reflection, wave transmission and wave disturbance around the device. The results are examined considering scale effects, influence of wave length and wave steepness.
