in an innovative technique for efficient energy generation
Waves produce movement of an elongated drive unit, secured by three cables to the seabed, which then transfers mechanical energy via a cable to a generator, which is mounted on a wind turbine tower and shielded from seawater.
The latest development work is focussed on float trajectory and control strategy, with designs achieving up to 80 % utilization of the incoming wave energy for driving electric generators.
The 8661 torque sensor is permanently mounted between two couplings. These couplings are designed to correct vertical and angular misalignments and differences in length. The torque and speed measurements are available as analog or TTL signals for further processing. In addition, the optional USB interface can be used for digital analysis of the measurement data.
