On the 16th of May 2017, Bergen Energy Lab was visited by Claes Eskilsson from Chalmers University of Technology. He is an associate professor with a research interest in hydrodynamic modelling of moored wave energy converters (WECs).

His talk gave an overview of the challenges faced within the wave energy sector. Claes highlighted how non-linear simulations are necessary, yet provide great computational challenges, when modelling a wave energy system that must deal with a dynamic sea state.
