We’re the systems engineering, simulation and data analysis group in CorPower. Our team is responsible for specifying the performance, functions and design load cases of our Wave Energy Converts (WECs) and test rigs. We are continuously maintaining and developing our in-house Simulink model – probably one of the world’s most advanced numerical models of a WEC.
The group performs system simulations, data analysis and controller development. We provide the design load cases allowing optimization and dimensioning of all subsystems. During on-land rig-testing and ocean deployment we provide data analysis and monitoring. There is usually a whole lot of data coming our way, and we’re always looking for smart ways to automate data analysis and reporting allowing us to efficiently show how the system behaves in various ocean conditions.
