The main objective of this course is to train each participant to the numerical and experimental modelling and control of Wave Energy Converters (WECs). The following topics will be taught:

• The State of the Art of wave energy conversion techniques

• The State of the Art of numerical modelling of WECs, the limitations and the alternative numerical approaches

• The State of the Art of experimental model-ling of WECs, the limitations

• The State of the Art of control of WECs

By the end of the course, the participants will have carried out the following tasks:

• Wave measurement and generation in wave tank

• Numerical investigation of the performance of a WEC

• Experimental investigation of the performance of a WEC with and without control

Important information concerning PhD courses:
We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year.
We look forward to your registrations.
