AbstractPeregrine Power, LLC will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will be entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and has essentially no cogging torque to overcome and (2) an electronic power conditioning and management subsystem which can receive erratic power from intermittent water movement and produce regulated DC for charging batteries or other uses.
