Abstract

This paper presents a new control strategy based on fuzzy logic for maximizing the absorbed energy of heaving wave energy converters (WEC). The fuzzy logic controller is responsible of minimizing the discrepancy between the optimal reference buoy velocity and the actual buoy velocity, hence maximizing the captured power for irregular sea environment. The proposed controller performed well compared to a conventional fixed reactive control strategy.
