OSU to Host New WEC Design Workshop in September

Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), the Pacific Marine Energy Center (PMEC), and Oregon State University (OSU) are hosting an integrated wave energy converter (WEC) design workshop in September.

The workshop will take place at Oregon State University on September 16 and 17, 2019.

During the two day workshop, participants will work with SNL and PMEC researchers to develop a hands-on understanding of the WEC design theory and experimental testing approach with specific attention focused on dynamics, control signal processing, experimental design and analysis, and full-scale design.

The course will include classroom time as well as experimental wave tank testing of a model-scale WEC device at OSU’s Hinsdale Wave Basin.
