Wave energy transmission system concepts for linear generator arrays
2004 (English)In: Ocean Engineering, ISSN 0029-8018, E-ISSN 1873-5258, Vol. 31, no 11-12, 1339-1349 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Wave energy is a renewable source, which has so far not been exploited widely. Many of the various schemes in the past consist of large mechanical structures, often located near the sea surface. This article presents a range of systems with point absorbers on the surface and linear generators placed on the seabed, converting the wave motion into electrical power. Electrical power components are combined in different ways to obtain solutions suitable for various conditions. Different topologies for the electrical system transmitting power to the grid are discussed. Qualitative case studies are used to exemplify system options and connection schemes.
