Adaptive hierarchical model predictive control of wave energy converters - Stage 1

Principal investigator: Guang LI
This project proposes a hierarchical adaptive optimal control framework to maximise wave energy conversion efficiency while guaranteeing safe operation for a large range of sea states. The framework combines the strengths of several key promising technologies in control and wave prediction to adaptively achieve the best trade-off between energy maximisation and survivability.
