Welcome to COERbuoy(1)!

Body-exact simulation of point absorber wave energy converter (WEC)


COERbuoy (platform)

A simulation platform for point absorber wave energy converter with focus on power optimisation control.

  • body-exact hydrodynamic parameters
  • control interface
  • use via graphical user interface, command line or python

COERbuoy1 (benchmark)

A benchmark tool built on top of the COERbuoy platform, which features a realistic WEC control problem, featuring:

  • a two degree-of-freedoms WEC model
  • with negative spring to reduce the buoyancy stiffness
  • and Stribeck friction
  • and a generator with saturation effects
  • a comprehensive benchmark to evaluate controller
  • with two levels of complexity (normal mode and simple mode)
