Increasing Power Capture of Wave Energy Converters via Advanced control of the PowerTake-Off

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Kathleen Edwards, Dr.
Award Amount: $148,832.00
Abstract:
The increase in the ability of a wave energy converter (WEC) to capture energy from waves is critical to ensuring the viability and cost effectiveness of wave energy power devices. WECs absorb wave power by applying a back force to oppose the forces that waves exert on the system. The back force is… More
