    Abstract

    In this paper we compare the optimal configurations for an array of WECs given two control schemes, a real-time global control and a passive sea-state based tuning scheme. In a particular wave climate and array orientation with its axis normal to the prevailing wave direction, closely-spaced symmetrical arrays of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 cylinders of different radiative properties are simulated for varying inter-device separation distances. For each device and control type, we focus on the factors that influence the optimal layout, including number of devices, separating distance and angular spreading. The average annual power output is calculated for each optimal configuration.
