A design of a two-buoy small scale point absorber was built and tested in July 2016 on West Lake. The tests were aimed at performance characterization and validation of a linear dynamics model. The coefficients used in the model are obtained through a combination of bench-top and tank-side experiment. The device produced an average of 40W from waves of 35 cm height and frequencies between 0.6-0.8Hz. The experimental results compare reasonably well with the numerical model. However, there is a significant amount of scatter in the experimental values which was attributed to various sources
