Reliability-centered Development of a Wave Energy Converter: Interfaces Between Reliability Modeling, FMECA and LCC

Abstract

Wave power is a proposed technology for producing renewable energy. To achieve competitive energy price, reliability is one of the key issues to be considered in the design of wave energy converter (WEC) devices. In this paper, we present an approach proposed to support reliability-centered development of an experimental MegaRoller WEC device. The approach consists of analytical and simulation-based methods, including failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA), reliability modeling and simulation using reliability block diagrams (RBDs), as well as life cycle cost (LCC) calculations. In this study, we focus especially on the interactions and interfaces between these methods during the development activities, and discuss the information flows within the reliability-centered development process.
