  2. 2. Numerical Modelling and Statistical Analysis of Ocean Wave Energy Converters and Wave Climates

    Author : Wei Li; Isberg Jan; Jens Peter Kofoed; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wave power; Wave energy converter; Gravity-based foundation; Power absorption; Wave spectrum; Linear generator; Frequency domain; Wave climate; Ocean wave modelling; Mixed-distribution model; Bivariate distribution; Archimedean copula;

    Abstract : Ocean wave energy is considered to be one of the important potential renewable energy resources for sustainable development. Various wave energy converter technologies have been proposed to harvest the energy from ocean waves. This thesis is based on the linear generator wave energy converter developed at Uppsala University. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wave Power for Desalination

    Author : Jennifer Leijon; Cecilia Boström; Irina Temiz; Jens Engström; Deborah Greaves; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Wave power; desalination; freshwater; engineering education; linear generator; wave energy converter; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis presents work related to wave powered desalination. Wave power for desalination could be an interesting alternative for islands or coastal regions facing freshwater shortage, and several systems have been proposed in literature. However, desalination is a process which demands a lot of energy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Like a wave : Understanding the film and TV industries in Korea and Sweden

    Author : Su-Hyun Berg; Dominic Power; Johan Jansson; Oliver Ibert; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; knowledge creation and diffusion; film and TV industries; South Korea; Sweden; creative industries;

    Abstract : This doctoral dissertation is concerned with the complex dynamics of knowledge in the South Korean film and TV industry and Swedish filmmaking from a spatiotemporal perspective. The film and TV industries are highly dependent on knowledge and innovation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cooling Strategies for Wave Power Conversion Systems

    Author : Antoine Baudoin; Cecilia Boström; Anne Blavette; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave power; power conversion system; thermal management; power elctronics; passive cooling; natural convection.;

    Abstract : The Division for Electricity of Uppsala University is developing a wave power concept. The energy of the ocean waves is harvested with wave energy converters, consisting of one buoy and one linear generator. The units are connected in a submerged substation. The mechanical design is kept as simple as possible to ensure reliability. READ MORE
