Abstract

In this conference presentation, we shall describe recent simulations in a novel ocean wave energy system (floating surface piercing) device.
We will review the fundamentals of wave energy physics, some other recent developments in wave energy harvesting devices and then describe the new simulations with ANSYS FLUENT FV software.
First we provide a brief overview of activities in renewable energy systems simulation ( MHD ocean wave, geothermal etc) conducted by the MPESG team at Salford University including MSc, PhD and BEng projects supervised by the MPESG team members in renewable energy systems.
We then return to the novel study and identify superior performance achieved by 2 D simulations for a range of wave conditions (different order hydrodynamic wave theories) including velocity, pressure and vorticity contour plots visualization.
Pathways for future work are also outlined including 3 D simulations and also fluid structure interaction (hydroelasticity).
