  • Like all other floating structures, wave energy converters (WECs) need to be kept in position by station-keeping systems in order to realize its functionality and ensure its safety. A compliant mooring system is normally applied and survivability is the main concern for mooring system design. However, WECs based on relative motions impose special requirements on their mooring systems to ensure that they do not affect the energy capture significantly. The purpose of this study is to investigate… CONTINUE READING
