The research question in objective 1 aims to address a very relevant and timely challenge in wave energy conversion. This has been brought about by a need for arrays of smaller wave energy devices to utilise the less-energetic wave resource off the coast of China. For a lower energy resource, control of arrays is even more important in order to optimise performance and to improve survivability.
Objective 2 is a particularly comprehensive task as it involves delivering sub-objectives of developing an energy storage model and co-ordinated control models.
Objective 3 focusses on tasks that will help to forge a long-term partnership between Edinburgh, Ocean, and Hohai Universities.
