June 21, 2022 10:00 am Published by

Building on an R&D 100 award to include major code overhauls and an updated PTO-Sim library, WEC-Sim v5.0 has been released. The open-source code for simulating wave energy converters was developed in MATLAB/SIMULINK, with the ability to model devices that are comprised of rigid bodies, joints, power take-off systems, and mooring systems.

WEC-Sim is an equal collaboration between Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office. WEC-Sim is publicly available on GitHub.
