Signature Projects are intended to bring focus to a selection of U.S. Department of Energy's Water Power Technologies Office (WPTO) projects. By designating a Signature Project, the project reports, datasets, and associated papers can be easily discoverable. By bringing together all aspects of a project, whether a completed legacy project or an ongoing investigation, the MRE community can be informed of what investigations have been undertaken, which have succeeded, what tools are available, and where gaps in information persist.
Documents tagged under Device Modeling pertain to the application of the WEC-Sim software to model a device. Application cases of WEC-Sim include, but are not limited to, modeling devices such as: wave energy converters, floating offshore wind, multi-use platforms, and barges. Device Modeling is often done in conjunction with Experimental Validation for comparison of WEC-Sim numerical simulations to experimental data of a device’s performance. Device Modeling can also be done in conjunction with PTO/Grid Modeling to include coupled power-take-off and grid dynamics.
This table lists documents associated with the Device Modeling project, including reports written by the project team, links to relevant data or modeling codes, and papers that have used the project outputs or are closely associated with them.
