The latest deliverables, reports and research data from the VALID project. 


Deliverable 1.1 is an overview of WEC-System breakdown, the critical components and sub-systems, their related parameters and the associated design requirements for representative ocean energy converters.

Deliverable 1.2 reviews and defines the theoretical, numerical and experimental modelling approaches to be considered in the VALID project to address the design and accelerated testing of critical components and subsystems of Wave Energy Converters (WECs).

This report addresses the robustness of the results from the test rig and methods for evaluating the measurement uncertainty, both in physical and virtual set-ups. Outcome of task 1.3.

Deliverable D2.5 of the VALID project analyses the specification for data management of the VALID Hybrid Test Platform during the experimental campaigns for the three User Cases of the project.

This report focuses on the design and manufacturing of VALID seal rig test bench, including sample preparation to successfully implement the testing plan. Outcome of task 3.2

This deliverable gathers all information to setup the VALID Hybrid Test Platform. This includes choosing the met-ocean conditions; setting up wave-to-wire models as well as high-fidelity CFD models used to estimate scale effects. It also includes setting up the structural models needed for the hybrid model. Outcome of task 3.3

Deliverable 4.1 characterises the second User Case defined for the VALID project, which is related to the behaviour of the electric generator used by IDOM in their MARMOK Wave Energy Converter (WEC).

Deliverable 5.1 provides an overview of the topic dealt with in User Case #3, the reliability of seawater hydraulic pump seals used in wave energy converters (WECs).

The main aim of Deliverable 6.1 is to provide an overview of available standards and regulations relevant to Wave Energy Converters.

Definition of minimum requirements and quality of the physical testing activities to test/demonstrate reliability and durability through accelerated lifetime testing. Outcome of task 6.2

This document will set out the overarching strategy for achieving coordinated, engaging, multi-stakeholder exchange of knowledge that will progress the scientific understanding of ocean energy and knowledge exchange between academic and industrial partners in order to bridge the existing gap between both disciplines. Outcome of task 7.1

Deliverable 7.2 presents the Data Management Plan (DMP) for VALID. The planned research data sets and publications have been described in this initial version of the DMP.

Create a plan for promoting the project through media, marketing and digital communications activity, to ensure a high profile for the project and support exchange of knowledge more widely. This plan will detail media and marketing engagement activity, set out the digital communication tools to be used for each area of the project, including creating a new website, social media channels, setting up file and calendar sharing, and digital conferencing tools. Outcome of task 7.3

The training programme plan outlines the tentative content of three webinars to be given on a yearly basis.

Deliverable 7.7 aims to build a stakeholders database for the VALID project with a market intelligence approach to provide guidance to WP7 tasks.

Deliverable 8.1 is the first version of the Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) for VALID and will be finalized at M36 in Deliverable 8.2
