We’re the systems engineering, simulation and data analysis group in CorPower. Our team is responsible for specifying the performance, functions and design load cases of our Wave Energy Converts (WECs) and test rigs. We are continuously maintaining and developing our in-house Simulink model – probably one of the world’s most advanced numerical models of a WEC.
The group performs system simulations, data analysis and controller development. We provide the design load cases allowing optimization and dimensioning of all subsystems. During on-land rig-testing and ocean deployment we provide data analysis and monitoring. There is usually a whole lot of data coming our way, and we’re always looking for smart ways to automate data analysis and reporting allowing us to efficiently show how the system behaves in various ocean conditions.
CorPower Ocean is a global leader in Wave Energy technology. The ocean forms one of the largest yet least explored renewable energy sources on earth. We bring a new class of high efficiency Wave Energy Converters (WECs) enabling robust and cost-effective harvesting of electricity from ocean waves. The design principle is inspired by the pumping principles of the human heart and offers five times more energy per ton of device compared to previously known technologies, allowing a large amount of energy to be harvested using a small and low-cost device. A unique transparent protection mode brings survivability in the toughest storm conditions. We are headquartered in Sweden with offices in Portugal, Scotland and Norway.
