Special Issue "Computational Modelling of Wave Energy Converters"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2021) | Viewed by 5301
Interests: wave–structure interaction; wave energy conversion; linear and nonlinear waves; applied mathematics
Wave energy is an abundant renewable energy resource. However, such energy is not currently harnessed because of the steep cost and low efficiency of wave energy converters. On the design side, the sheer size and complexity of many proposed technologies has hampered the development of affordable devices. On the modelling side, one fundamental problem is how to reliably calculate wave loads and device dynamics in highly nonlinear waves and extreme conditions. This Special Issue welcomes papers addressing the conceptual development of novel and potentially disruptive device archetypes, as well as the development of computational models to characterise device hydrodynamics in nonlinear seas and under extreme wave loading. Contributions are also welcome on modelling innovative hybrid wind–wave energy systems, as well as environmental impacts of wave farms. We also welcome review papers on the abovementioned topics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
