A coupled electromechanical and hydrodynamic simulation of a novel generator connected to a heaving buoy for wave energy conversion has been developed. The simulation is based primarily in MATLAB using its built-in Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) solvers. These solvers have acted on the data derived from an electromagnetic finite element analysis and from the WAMIT wave interaction simulation software, to simulate the full system in the time domain.
