The workshop will take place at Oregon State University on September 16 and 17, 2019.

During the two day workshop, participants will work with SNL and PMEC researchers to develop a hands-on understanding of the WEC design theory and experimental testing approach with specific attention focused on dynamics, control signal processing, experimental design and analysis, and full-scale design.

The course will include classroom time as well as experimental wave tank testing of a model-scale WEC device at OSU’s Hinsdale Wave Basin.
