Norgaard, J.; Andersen, T. (2012). Investigation of Wave Transmission from a Floating Wave Dragon Wave Energy Converter. Paper Presented at the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, Rhodes, Greece.
Abstract: 

This paper focuses on the calibration of the MIKE21BW model against the measured wave height reduction behind a 24 kW/m Wave Dragon (WD) wave energy converter. A numerical model is used to determine the wave transmission through the floating WD in varying wave conditions. The transmission obtained from the MIKE21BW model is compared to results from a simpler model, based on the integration of wave energy flux. The conclusion is that the simplified approach provides results similar to the transmission obtained from the numerical model, both for a single WD and a farm of multiple WDs.
