Estimator Model for Prediction of Power Output of Wave Farms Using Machine Learning Methods

Bhavana Burramukku

The amount of power generated by a wave farm depends on the Wave Energy Converter (WEC) arrangement along with the usual wave conditions. Therefore, forming the appropriate arrangement of WECs in an array is an important factor in maximizing power absorption. Data collected from the test sites is used to design a neural model for predicting wave farm's power output generated. This paper focuses on developing a neural model for the prediction of wave energy based on the data set derived from the four real wave scenarios from the southern coast of Australia. The applied converter model is a fully submerged three-tether converter called CETO. A precise analysis of the WEC placement is investigated to reveal the amount of power generated by the wave farms on the test site.
