Ahead of the wave.
Journal of Ocean Technology, 5 (2).
This paper examines the challenges of efficiently harnessing wave energy. A variety of energy
conversion device types is reviewed and a generic heaving buoy device selected for detailed
examination. A number of modeling and control challenges are detailed and a hierarchical
control structure is indicated. Both potable water production and electricity generation are
included as possible uses of such devices and each presents separate control challenges.
