Title: METHOD FOR CONTROLLING A WAVE POWER SYSTEM BY MEANS OF A CONTROL OBTAINED BY MINIMISING AN OBJECTIVE FUNCTION WEIGHTED AND DISCRETISED BY THE TRAPEZOID RULE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to improving the operation of a wave power system by a predictive control method (COM) of the conversion machine which maximises the energy generated taking into account the efficiency of the energy conversions (MOD ENE) and a prediction of the swell (PRED). Moreover, the method according to the invention determines the optimal control by minimising an objective function weighted and discretised by the trapezoid rule.
