|Healy Wave Energy Converter
|Healy Wave Energy, LLC is developing a wave energy converter designed for reliability, safety, and economical power production for island and coastal communities. MMC developed a custom model that coupled the two-body hydrodynamics of the device with the pneumatics of the novel PTO. MMC also incorporated nonlinear, large-displacement mooring dynamics to evaluate the system’s response to extreme storms.
