Archimedes wave swing (AWS)-based wave energy conversion (WEC) is the first device adopting the direct-drive power takeoff. The linear permanent magnet generator (LPMG) is employed to convert the wave energy to electric power. In this paper, the power characteristics of the LPMG are discussed in detail using the model in the dq0 reference frame established by the authors in a previous work and the forces acting on the translator of the AWS from the LPMG are analyzed. Then based on the two… CONTINUE READING
