This paper will begin by presenting two power takeoff (PTO) technologies for the SEAREV wave energy converter (WEC) followed by the design methodology applied to electromagnetic generator cycles for the all-electric solution. The operating principle associated with the SEAREV WEC will be described before discussing the two conversion technologies intended to transform wave energy into electricity. The types of systems are twofold: hydroelectric and all-electric. The strong coupling between the hydrodynamic, mechanical, and electrical phenomena heavily influences the behavior of the recovery (PTO) system and leads to a complex system design that requires a full-scale modeling description. A unique design methodology for the all-electric conversion chain has been developed around several distinct control modes, including one featuring power leveling.
