Comparing Numerical Models of the TALOS Wave Energy Converter
Keywords:WEC Numerical Modelling, TALOS, WEC-Sim
In this study, we present the development of a numerical model of the TALOS Wave Energy Converter (WEC) in WEC-Sim and compare it with existing numerical in-house models from Lancaster and results from DNV's Sesam code. The objective of this work is to validate the performance of the TALOS WEC using WEC-Sim and compare the results with those obtained from other numerical models. The TALOS WEC is a promising technology for the generation of clean, renewable energy from ocean waves. The development of a reliable numerical model for the TALOS WEC is crucial for its design and optimization. To achieve this, we have implemented the TALOS WEC in WEC-Sim and compared the results to in-house models from Lancaster and to results from DNV's Sesam code. Our results show good agreement with the results from Lancaster and DNV, demonstrating the accuracy and reliability of the numerical model developed in WEC-Sim. This work advances the field of wave energy conversion by providing a verified numerical model of the TALOS WEC, which can be used for further optimization and design studies.
