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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Wei Li; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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. Cooling Strategies for Wave Power Conversion Systems

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Antoine Baudoin; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : 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

  4. 4. Wave Powered Desalination

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala universitet

    Author : Jennifer Leijon; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
