    This paper presents an integrated framework for the design of wave energy control systems, considering the totality of the design process as well as any ancillary functions required, such as model reduction, excitation force estimation, etc. In particular, we propose the moment-based mathematical framework as an integrated environment which allows a smooth transition between modelling and control activities, as well as providing a framework to consider optimal rejection of modelling errors or errors in excitation force estimation. The paper provides an overview of the framework, also containing an illustrative case study to demonstrate a likely pathway through the framework
