Small Scale WEC Performance Modeling Data

Metadata Updated: June 11, 2023

Small Scale WEC Performance Modeling Data is performance data from downscaled models of common WEC devices and their calculated performance outputs. This data is used by the Small WEC interactive modeling tool hosted by PRIMRE. The devices include a point absorber, a two-body point absorber (RM3), an oscillating surge device (OSWEC), and an attenuator type device (McCabe Wave Pump). One of the primary use cases for this work is to give an easy way to compare power output for a variety of WECs and model sizes.
