IMPACT: Next-generation testing approach for Wave Energy Converters
IMPACT is a collaborative research and innovation project which aims to develop and demonstrate a next-generation testing approach for Wave Energy Converters (WECs).
The proposed 250kW Dual Hardware-In-the-Loop (DHIL) testing platform is based on a technology which expands the capabilities of the already established Hardware-In-the-Loop technique.
Testing Wave Energy Converters (WEC) using Dual Hardware-in-the-Loop (DHIL)
The IMPACT project aims to develop and demonstrate a new testing approach for WECs called “dual hardware-in-the-loop” (DHIL).
