Abstract: Declutching control is applied to a hemispherical wave energy converter with direct linear electric Power-TakeOff systems oscillating in heave direction in both regular and irregular waves. The direct linear Power-TakeOff system can be simplified as a mechanical spring and damper system. Time domain model is applied to dynamics of the hemispherical wave energy converter in both regular and irregular waves. And state space model is used to replace the convolution term in time domain equation of the heave oscill…
