A wave generation system was built and equipped in the wave energy and technology lab at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (UL Lafayette). The system can generate dynamic waves to simulate the ocean conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. This paper explains the design, construction, and validation of such system. With the installation of the designed wave generation system, the ocean and wave model produced in the Gulf of Mexico can be reproduced and simulated in the lab, which allows us to explore the ocean and wave energy in that gulf through experimental and computational approaches. A workshop of wave energy technology was organized in the lab to reach a broad audience and look for potential partnerships with industry and research community.
