Optimal Damping Prole for a Heaving
Buoy Wave Energy Converter.
In: IFAC Conference on Control Applications in Marine Systems (CAMS), September 2010, Rostock.
This paper discusses optimal damping proles for a heaving buoy Wave Energy
Converter (WEC) with a single degree of freedom. The goal is to examine how the device can
be controlled to harvest maximum energy from incident waves. Both latching and declutching
strategies are allowed via a general parametrization of the damping force. Ultimately, the
research attempts to determine the best control strategy to apply considering the relative
resonant frequency of the device and the monochromatic wave frequency set
