Wave energy is currently an untapped resource, but has the potential to make a significant contribution to the energy mix. In order to use conventional electrical generators mechanical interfaces are used, such as hydraulic systems and air-turbines. With the electrical generator these interfaces are known as the electrical power take-off and the type used depends upon the wave energy device. A brief description of the different power take offs is provided to show how conventional rotary… CONTINUE READING
