The feasibility study of wave power development in Taiwan was performed in two phases. The first phase included the calculation and assessment of the available wave energy along the coasts of Taiwan (including offshore island), the selection of the best candidate site for future wave power development, the evaluation and recommendation of the most viable wave power system for the selected study site, and the development of a field measurement program for data collection and analysis. The second phase of this study included conceptual design of a complete wave power system, wave power system performance analysis, recommendation for future research and construction program. This paper describes the methodology and procedure applied for the selected viable wave power system.
