This paper presents an initial experimental study of wave energy converters concentrically arranged and attached on a floating offshore platform model. The 1:27 scale model, has been designed, built and tested, in two main situations, without and with twelve cone shape wave energy converters. To simulate the power take-off system in each wave energy converter, rotational friction dampers have been installed on the joints of the floaters arms to the platform deck. The experimental results show that the interaction between buoys and platform have a positive effect on the platform heave and pitch motions. However, the reduction in heave and pitch motions of the platform, after installing the wave energy converter array, depends on the damping of the equivalent power take-off system. Thus, the effect of dampers in the motion of buoys is presented to allow an initial understanding of the required damping range of the power take-off system and related control strategies.
