On the annual wave energy absorption by two-body heaving WECs with latching control

JCC Henriques, MFP Lopes, RPF Gomes, LMC Gato, AFO Falcão- Renewable Energy, September 2012

► Time-domain modelling of a two-body wave energy converter with latching control. ► Annual energy absorption maximization regarding a wave climate. ► Optimum mass ratio between the floater and the submerged body. ► New high-order numerical method for the solution of the Cummins equations. ► Continuous polynomial approximation of the solution using the least-squares method
