CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere conducted an intensive field program between Dec 2014 and Feb 2016 to assess the physical wave-current-morphodynamic response of wave energy extraction at Carnegie Clean En... moreergy's Perth Wave Energy Project, located near Garden Island near Perth. For this study, a total of five oceanographic instrument deployments were undertaken. To support this field program, a series of numerical simulations using a phase-averaged wave model capable of including of wave energy converters (WECs).
The numerical model used is the Sandia National Laboraties SWaN model (SNL-SWAN v1.0, http://snl-waterpower.github.io/SNL-SWAN/)
Sets of model simulations are available over each instrument deployments; however these data sets are the gridded bulk statistics
The last AWAC deployment (deployment 5) occurred following the recovery of all WEC units. The AWACs were deployed in the same configuration as the previous deployment and this deployment acts as a control experiment to determine the natural variability of the wave field across the site.
For deployments 1-4 bulk wave statistics significant wave height, mean wave direction, smoothed peak period and directional spreading of the waves.
This work was funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency and CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, and Carnegie Clean Energy provided access to site.less

This data set includes models of 19 Australian electricity feeders that were identified as representative of the Australian network in the National Feeder Taxonomy Study. The models are available both... more in PSS Sincal and PowerFactory, two major industry-standard power simulation tools. Real-world load and solar profiles are included for the loads in these feeders. These profiles are half-hour time series spanning one year. The user also has the ability to attach their own load and solar generation profiles to the feeders.
For more detailed information about these models, see the supporting attachments.less
