Page Count: 40
ICS Code (Hydraulic energy engineering): 27.140
scope:

This part of IEC 62600, which is a Technical Specification, provides a method for assessing the electrical power production performance of a Wave Energy Converter (WEC), based on the performance at a testing site.

The scope of this Technical Specification includes:

a) all WECs that produce electrical power from wave energy;

b) all sea resource zones (near and offshore, deep and shallow water);

c) the specification applies to commercial scale WECs that are:

1) compliantly moored,

2) tautly moored,

3) bottom mounted,

4) shore mounted.

The scope of this Technical Specification does not include:

a) WECs that produce other forms of energy unless this energy is converted into electrical energy;

b) resource assessment;

c) scaled devices in test facilities (tank or scaled sea conditions) where any scaling would need to be carried out to extrapolate results for a full scale device;

d) power quality issues;

e) environmental issues;

f) power matrix transposition from one location to another.

This Technical Specification provides a systematic method which includes:

- measurement of WEC power output in a range of sea states;

- WEC power matrix development;

- an agreed framework for reporting the results of power and wave measurements.
