Abstract

The present invention relates to the field of systems for converting wave energy into electricity. More specifically, the invention relates to a system comprising a submerged body with positive buoyancy that captures the energy of the incoming wave and, through an anchoring system that acts as a reaction mechanism between the device and seabed, it converts wave energy into electricity.;

Abstract

The present invention is a system to enhance the energy harvesting of a pitching floating wave energy converter. The system is composed of water sloshing U-shaped tanks named U-Tanks that allows the tuning of the resonance peak frequency of the device with the incoming sea state. The resonance tuning will results in energy harvest enhancement of the device;

Abstract

The presented system is an energy converter, using gyroscopic effects to generate electrical power from the sea waves. The device consists of an external hull that is sealed and constrained to the seabed through a slack mooring. The rocking movement induced by the waves triggers the gyroscopic system placed inboard, which in turn actuates two rotary generators and produces electricity.
