Ocean Wave Energy Harvester
This project will fabricate an ocean wave energy harvesting mechanism that uses a mechanical motion rectifier (MMR) to directly convert the irregular oscillatory wave motion into regular unidirectional rotation of a generator. The team will also design the power electronics to regulate and store the electrical energy generated, field-test the improved prototype in the marine environment, and work with industry to develop a new design of energy harvester, which will be able to harvest energy in both vertical and horizontal direction.
