Prolongation of the Deployment and Monitoring of a Multiple Oscillating Water Column Wave Energy Converter

This paper gives a brief background to the origins of the prototype device and presents the methodology for the analysis of the prototype conversion efficiency, calculated for the period of the sea trials as 34.5%. The prolongation of the sea trials period allowed the generation of physical data from which an evaluation of the concept and an estimation of the overall conversion efficiency achieved during the sea trials period could be calculated.
