The hydro-meteorological grounding of the World Ocean wave energy resources estimation

Elaboration of methodology of wave formation process analysis is dedicated to a hydro-meteorological grounding of wave energy resources estimation and exploitation opportunity.

On the base of data on waves and their characteristics, analysis methods were described of wind waves formation as well as evaluation of the wave energy resources. Contemporary methods of waves calculation in synoptic scale are based on hydrodynamic models, in climatic scale mainly on probability models. It was shown how the primary data about power of low amplitude regular sinusoidal waves can be generalized for irregular three-dimensional waves. Methods were examined to define a value of rough sea power on the basis of wave parameters in different time scales.

Also wave power resources evaluation was carried out for the nearshore area of the south east Euboea island (Greece). The area is characterized by relatively low seasonal and synoptical changeability of wave environment. The area appears to be suitable for wave converters testing, since it is easily assessable and the onshore infrastructure allows much room for assistance. This enables to regard this water area as a possible place for an experimental work provided the Marineco project will extend to the development stage of multimodule devices afterwards.
