Abstract: This paper presents a novel method of estimating ocean waves by measuring current outputs from the Archimedes Wave Swing (A WS) wave energy converter (WEC). The wave period and height are crucial information to maximize the power output from the A WS. However, since the A WS is installed on the seabed, additional sensors and buoys are required to obtain the ocean wave information. The extended Kalman filter (EKF) is applied to obtain the states of the ocean wave by measuring the generator current in the a -f3…
