Large arrays of wave energy converters of point-absorber type are studied using an approximate analytical model. The model is validated against a numerical method that takes into account full hydrodynamic interactions based on linear potential flow theory. The low computational cost of the analytical model enables parameter studies of parks in the MW range and includes up to over 1000 interacting devices. The model is actuated by irregular wave data obtained at the Swedish west coast. In particular, focus is on comparing park geometries and improving park configurations to minimize the power fluctuations.
