Future designs of systems for power extraction from ocean waves will likely involve a periodic array of absorbing units. We report an asymptotic theory of scattering and radiation by a linear array of heaving buoys in a channel and attached to power-takeoff devices. The spacing between buoys is assumed to be comparable to the incident wavelength and sea depth but much greater than the buoy size. The effects of extraction rate on the buoy motion, transmission and reflection coefficients for a… CONTINUE READING
