    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. Atmosphere-ocean Interactions in Swell Dominated Wave Fields

    Author : Alvaro Semedo; Anna Rutgersson; Oyvind Saetra; Piero Lionello; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Waves; Wind sea; Swell; Swell propagation; MABL; Air-sea interaction; Momentum flux; Wave climate; Coupling; Wave age; Empirical Orthogonal functions; Wave model; Climate model; WAM; RCA; wave heights; Meteorology; Meteorologi; Meteorologi; Meteorology;

    Abstract : Ocean wind waves represent the atmosphere-ocean boundary, playing a central role in the air-sea exchanging processes. Heat, mass and momentum are transferred across this boundary, with waves mediating the exchange of principally the momentum between the winds and the ocean surface. During the generation process waves are called wind sea. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wave Powered Desalination

    Author : Jennifer Leijon; Cecilia Boström; Irina Temiz; Jens Engström; Anna Rutgersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wave power; desalination; marine renewable energy sources; marine current; freshwater; Engineering Science; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : The aim of this licentiate thesis is to investigate opportunities to produce fresh-water and electricity using marine renewable energy sources, such as wave power and marine current power, for water scarce areas. It summarizes the ongoing work within the field and suggests some possibilities of future re-search. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wave Energy Conversion : Linear Synchronous Permanent Magnet Generator

    Author : Oskar Danielsson; Mats Leijon; Göran Engdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Finite element method; linear synchronous generator; longitudinal end effect; permanent magnet; point absorber; offshore testing; wave power; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis studies the electric aspects of a linear synchronous permanent magnet generator. The generator is designed for use in a wave energy converter, which determines the fundamental requirements of the generator. The electromagnetic properties of the generator are investigated with a finite element based simulation tool. READ MORE
