Abstract
  • Recently, there has been peaked interest in developing high energy producing and optimized power take-off topologies for Wave Energy Converters (WEC). As large as the potential of the oceans may seem, harnessing that energy and effectively converting it to electricity in significant amounts is a challenge. Currently, there are no single devices that satisfy this sufficiently. In this thesis we compare two promising Power Take-Off (PTO) units; the Dual-Stator Spoke Array Vernier Permanent Magnet machine (DSSA VPM) and the Direct Drive Hydraulic Power Take-Off (DDHPTO). A steady state and transient analysis is done to compare the efficiencies of the two machines. The results will show that the DSSA VPM has the higher efficiency and a greater Annual Energy Production (AEP) over the DDHPTO.
