title = "Mathematical modelling of a wave-energy converter",

abstract = "We report progress towards developing a mathematical model that can be used to optimise the design of a novel power take off unit for a wave energy generator. We show that the power take off unit can be considered as a non-smooth, dissipative dynamical system. We derive equations of motion using the Lagrangian framework, incorporating a Rayleigh dissipation function and discuss a procedure for generating approximate analytical solutions.",
