Wave- and Tidal Power
Fedem Technology has conducted early concept development and analysis of proposed wave and tidal power plants.
Our software is particularly well suited for simulations of large mechanical systems exposed to heavy sea loads, which would be the case for a wave power plant.
In the FEDEM software, the actual facility is described in a complete global model in which the critical components are described to a level of detail required for calculation of fatigue damage.
Hydrodynamic loads on the structure, both in deep- and shallow water, can be simulated based on realistic sea conditions and advanced wave theories for both regular and irregular waves.
