In this project, a new concept towards modelling the pumping system of the Ocean Grazer is considered. The Ocean Grazer will be an enormous platform in the sea which is able to harvest energy from incoming sea waves and store it in a reservoir at a higher altitude. The Ocean Grazer is currently in the research and development phase. The validity of the project is under investigation by employees and students of the University of Groningen. This Bachelor Integration Project will extend the knowledge of the pumping system within the Ocean Grazer under realistic wave motion, with as purpose making the Ocean Grazer a viable option to manufacture. The novel system will have a different representation of the Power Take Off System (referred to as PTO) than previous researches up till this moment in time. The Power Take Off is described by the dynamics of the hydraulic subsystem of the Ocean Grazer. In addition, this project considers accurate representations of the excitation and radiation forces which is not yet combined with the above mentioned novelty in previous researches of the Ocean Grazer Group.
