A novel wave energy converter, termed the Ocean Grazer, designed to extract energy from waves of varying profiles and energy contents has recently been proposed by the University of Groningen. The authors have performed preliminary modeling work to predict the behavior of the converter’s power take-off system, and constructed a proof-of-concept prototype to validate basic model predictions.
