Join Sandia National Laboratories as it hosts a webinar on the “WEC Design Optimization Toolbox (WecOptTool)” on Feb. 7, 2022, from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. ET.

The Wave Energy Converter Design Optimization Toolbox (WecOptTool) is an open-source software for conducting optimization studies of wave energy converters (WEC) and their control strategies. The software uses a co-design (WEC & controls) approach where for each WEC design considered in the optimization, the optimal control strategy for that design is found. This webinar will cover basic concepts for WecOptTool and introduce the new Python package (
