Last week (27-08-2017) the Ocean Grazer was present at EWTEC2017 in Cork, Ireland. The presentation given was titled: "A Frequency-Domain Model for a Novel Wave Energy Converter". The corresponding conference paper can be found under the same name.

EWTEC is short for European Wave and Tidal Energy Conference and is an international technical and scientific conference, focused on ocean renewable energy and widely respected for their commitment to maintain high standards of academic and industrial contributions. (EWTEC, 2017)

Mid-July, Ocean Grazer was also invited in two wave energy sessions during IFAC 2017 World Congress, in which our conference paper: "Towards Ocean Grazers's Modular Power Take-Off System Modeling: A Port-Hamiltonian Approach" was part of the presentations.

IFAC 2017 is a World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control. "Our multinational federation is concerned with automatic control and its representation in the fields of engineering, science and the impact of control technology on society." (IFAC, 2017)
