Our electrical team is responsible for designing and documenting the electrical subsystems of our wave devices, involving generators, power electronics and control systems. We’re also specifying and developing the electrical export system that collects power from many devices in wave energy farms, to deliver the generated power to on-land grids in a reliable and cost-efficient way. The data communication hardware within each device and for offshore wave farms involving fibre-optics and wireless communication methods are also part of our responsibility. Workdays usually include design work in electrical CAD, calculations and power systems analysis, supplier contacts, safety analysis and tuning and testing of the power, control and communication systems. The team includes experts in generators, drives, power export systems and control hardware.
