(WP2) EMG integrability analysis and specifications

The design of a reliable PTO solution is intrinsically linked with a detailed understanding of the loading environment that the PTO will be subject to during the design life of a WEC. Cruz Atcheson will perform an estimation of the loading environment across relevant design load cases, for combinations of target installation sites and WEC types. The combinations will be selected in consultation with UMBRA, NTNU, and the project’s Technical Advisory Board. These will allow the creation of a detailed PTO load envelope – that in turn will contribute to the design of the EMG (WP3), test bench (WP4), and control system (WP5). Furthermore, once integrated on the test bench, the WP2 simulation models will provide the “Calculated PTO input” for the HWIL simulation of WP6
