Abstract
  • Ocean wave energy shows great potential as a developing form of renewable energy. However, challenges arise in maturing this technology to achieve cost-effective energy conversion. Development and testing of wave energy converters can be problematic due to the harsh environment in which they are operated. To promote development of this technology, a platform is needed for comprehensive testing of these devices in this harsh environment. This will allow the determination of optimal topologies and control of wave energy converters for maximum power extraction. This work evaluates maximum power point tracking control in wave energy converters and presents two-variable maximum power point tracking control algorithms. A robust testing platform is developed for evaluating wave energy converters in the ocean environment. This testing platform is utilized in obtaining experimental data used in validating simulation results of the investigated control approaches.
