Aiming at improving the energy absorption from waves, a number of studies have considered declutching control-a phase-control method that consists of disengaging the power takeoff (PTO) system from the oscillating body at specific intervals of time. The on/off sequences with the instants to engage/disengage the PTO are usually determined by optimiz...

... 5 illustrates the wave spectra of sea states and synthetic waves (top), and the corresponding excitation force spectra (bottom). The significant wave height H s of the wave spectra, and the mean centroid frequency for both the wave (ω 1 ) and the excitation force spectra (ω 1,fe ) are shown in Table 2. ...

We consider a device which consists of a floating structure over a cylindrical plate placed at a finite height from the impermeable ocean floor. This paper developes the interaction of linear water waves with such a device. The whole fluid domain is divided into a number of sub-domains and boundary value problems are formulated for each identified...

Interest in water wave power generation, a promising source of renewable energy, is increasing. Numerous types of wave energy converters (WECs) have been designed to transform wave energy into electricity. In this study, we focus on heaving point absorbers (HPAs) of the Wavestar type, which consist of multiple floats connected to a bottom-fixed oce...

Single‐frequency microseisms (SFMs) have been revealed to be only generated in shallow water for decades, while some recent studies reported them in a deep ocean. Using the continuous waveform data recorded by ocean bottom seismometers, we investigate the deep ocean SFMs in the northern Philippine Sea. Based on the spectrum analysis, we find that t...

Abstract Extracting energy from ocean waves has become a heated topic since the energy crisis of the 2000s. Among all the different concepts and designs of Wave Energy Converter (WEC), point absorber is a widely adopted type with great potential, and various configurations and constraints are applicable to it. Here, the point absorber WECs with fou...

A warming climate has the potential to not only raise sea level but also exacerbate coastal hazards due to changes in storm frequency and intensity. Along open coasts where wave energy is often the dominant process dictating shoreline positions, changes in mean and extreme wave conditions are likely to alter long-term geomorphic evolution patterns....
