Wave energy converters (WECs) lack a prominent design that dominates the field. This project attempts to reproduce a theoretical cylinder that is 100% efficient in simulation and experimentation. The simulated cylinder is modeled in Capytaine, a BEM, from which hydrostatic and hydrodynamic data is rendered. That hydrodata will be used to create an *.h5 file to be used with WEC-Sim, a MATLAB Simulink packaged. WEC-Sim will permit the cylinder to be more accurately simulated through simulated dampeners, springs and power takeoff devices (PTOs). The physical experiments were performed and compared to the simulated data.
