This deliverable consists of two major parts:

  • A comprehensive review (Chapters 1-4) of all the electrical infrastructure technologies between the converter and the point of connection to the onshore electrical grid, including technologies currently used in offshore electrical networks, as well as those foreseen to be deployed in the near future.
  • A set of operating regimes of the ocean energy conversion arrays in terms of their output power (given as a statistical representation and as a set of representative time series), for the scenarios to be considered in the next tasks, as defined by WP1 and WP2 (Chapter 5).
