This work condenses various modeling techniques for different Point Absorber configurations. A combined frequency time domain model will be developed in Matlab-FORTRAN in order to compute the displacement, velocities and the power absorbed in the heave mode. Additionally, a single buoy motion including multiple degrees of freedom will be investigated as well. Therefore, the diffraction-radiation Boundary Element Method solvers NEMOH and BEMIO will be applied in the calculation of the… CONTINUE READING
