► Power calculations were performed for one year of hourly spectral wave data for a non-resonating wave energy converter. ► Passive tuning was considered over time scales of hours to a year. Optimal tuning coefficients varied greatly. ► The annual power output declined only 3% when tuning was performed annually rather than hourly. ► An array of four interacting WECs placed 10 diameters apart produced 5% less annual power than equivalent individual WECs.
