ASSESSMENT OF THE ENERGY POTENTIAL OF THE WAVES IN THE BLACK SEA
The present work aims to evaluate the energy potential of the waves from the Black Sea offshore area, taking into account eight reference points along the sea perimeter, and at the same time evaluating the performance of five wave energy converters (WECs) in these points. The study has shown that the most promising areas are those located in the west and south of the sea, where the wave parameters are the highest, and among the WECs analyzed the best in these areas have proved to be Wave Dragon and Oceantec.
