Abstract

A mathematical modelling describing interdisciplinary dynamics of an integrated electric converter-nonlinear
oscillator-water interaction system to harvest wave energies is presented. Water is considered as a compressible fluid with free surface governed by continuum mechanics. A nonlinear oscillator connected to an electric converter is fixed on a body floating on water subject to wave loads. A vibrational formulation is developed to build numerical equations. Quantitative solution characteristics of the system for equilibria, interactions and the effects of water and electric circuit on the nonlinear oscillator are discussed. Two numerical solution methods are proposed. Paper provides a fundamental basis for researchers in different areas to tackle this complex interdisciplinary problem.
