Ocean buoy, energy farm, wave resonance


An ocean buoy energy farm is taken into account to generate Green energy and deliver to small towns along the Korean coast. The present study investigates which array shows the more wave energy extraction of two different arrays; circular and linear. Our numerical study is analyzed by a plane-wave approximation, in which evanescent mode effects are included to a modified mild-slope equation based on the scattering characteristics for a single buoy.
