Abstract

To increase the clean and renewable energy used presently, energy could be extracted from the sea. Here an Archimedes Wave Swing (AWS) park is proposed to convert the motion of the sea waves into electricity with a capacity of 90 MW. In order to find the most suitable way to connect these devices, various electrical components are used which need to be modeled precisely to carry out the calculations and simulations. Several different topologies are implemented by linking up the devices to each other and to the electrical network and they will be evaluated according to important electrical and economical factors. The interest lies primarily in identifying farm configurations with a low cost profile and high efficiency.
