Sandia National Laboratories has scheduled two webinars to be held this month with a focus on wave energy sector development.

The first webinar will be hosted by Sandia National Laboratories on April 12, 2017. It will cover recent work on numerical modeling and state estimation for wave energy converters (WECs), Sandia Labs informed.

Topics will include an overview of state estimation, specific considerations for WEC control, and a discussion on the dynamic effects of filtering and estimation methods.

Another webinar, to be held on April 18, 2017, will be hosted by the WEC-Sim development team from Sandia Labs and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

This webinar is the first of a series of WEC-Sim advanced user webinars that focus on applying different features of the WEC-Sim code to model WECs.

The first webinar of the series will explain how to use the Bemio pre-processor to develop hydro-coefficients for WEC-Sim, and the Multiple Case Run (MCR) feature to create power matrices for evaluating WEC power performance.

WEC-Sim, developed by NREL and SNL and funded by US Department of Energy, is an open-source wave energy converter simulator that aims to aid device manufacturers, project developers, and other interested parties to analyze and optimize proof-of-concept and prototype WEC devices.
