Abstract:

A "Small Buoy for Energy Harvesting" has applications for use on current and future buoy systems used by the submarine fleet of the United States Navy. This work proposes to meet the requirements by converting mechanical wave energy to electrical energy using a generation system housed in a spar buoy. The energy extraction method will work with the natural orientation and motion of the buoy. Accumulated energy can be used to power a variety of systems including surveillance and communications and will greatly extend the operational capabilities of remote and independent marine based platforms.
