By actively controlling the rotation of its pendulum, a vertical axis pendulum wave energy converter can generate significantly more net electricity from ocean waves than what would otherwise be possible through a passively swinging pendulum. This suggests that such converters can optimize their performance by incorporating active control schemes within(More)
Presented is a preliminary investigation into the modeling, active control design, and simulation of a vertical axis pendulum wave energy converter, or vertical axis PWEC. Seeking to leverage their promising potential for energy extraction, an active control strategy for the PWEC pendulum dynamics is developed such that net electric power production is(More)
