Present Power Take off

The power take off for the prototype is a double sided linear permanent magnet synchronous machine, a cross section of which is given in Figure 8.4 [95].

The translator is only a few metres longer than the stator and therefore towards the extremities of oscillation there is not a full overlap between the two. Open circuit emf of this machine is hence reduced at the end points and not truly sinusoidal. Furthermore, in order to react a specific force as part of the power take off strategy it has to be borne in mind that a greater current is required at either end of the cycle.

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable.
