Title: Feasibility study of the CECO wave energy converter
Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: A feasibility study and proof of concept of a new and patented wave energy convertercalled CECO was performed. This device was designed to absorb both the kinetic and the potential waveenergy. The behavior of CECO was analyzed for different wave conditions and operation modes, and twodifferent techniques were used to evaluate the absorbed power. The relative capture widths determined forthis not-yet-optimized model are relatively high (up to 30%) and proved that this concept is promising,thus justifying further optimization studies.
