WEC-Sim (Wave Energy Converter Simulator) is an open-source code for simulating wave energy converters that has been actively developed and applied to simulate a wide variety of device archetypes, and has become a popular tool since its release. This paper reviews the development efforts and usage of WEC-Sim. The publications considered in this study have been broken down into six topic areas, namely, feature development, experimental validation, device modelling, control modelling, powertake-off (PTO) and grid modelling, and novel applications, which includes some non-wave energy applications. This review paper also recognizes the contributions of academic researchers and technology developers from around the world toward the broader WEC-Sim development effort. The growing number of external applications of WEC-Sim demonstrates a broader acceptance of the open-source code, and the ways WEC-Sim has been used in certain topic areas also highlight potential future development needs.
