Development of numerical wave power prediction tool offshore oscillating water column wave energy converter

Ahmed Seif-Eldine Mohamed Bayoumi, Doctoral Dissertation, University of Strathclyde, 2013
Marine renewable energy sources are crucial alternatives for a sustainable development. The idea of generating electrical power from water waves has been realized for many years. In fact, waves are now considered as an ideal renewable energy source since a Wave Energy Converter (WEC) has no fuel cost and provides cleanly a high power density that is available most of the time. The third generation of WECs is intended to be installed offshore. This allows the device to harvest the great energy content of waves found in deep water and minimise the environmental impacts of the device. Continue reading
