Abstract
    This paper focuses on the calibration of the MIKE21BW model againstthe measured wave height reduction behind a 24 kW/m Wave Dragon(WD) wave energy converter. A numerical model is used to determinethe wave transmission through the floating WD in varying waveconditions. The transmission obtained from the MIKE21BW model iscompared to results from a simpler model, based on the integration of wave energy flux. The conclusion is that the simplified approachprovides results similar to the transmission obtained from the numerical model, both for a single WD and a farm of multiple WDs.
