The EWP convertors draw energy from wave power throughout uniquely shaped floaters, which rise and fall with the up and down motion, lifting force, change of water level, hydraulic air lock, and incident flux of waves.
The floaters are attached by robust arms to any type of man-made structure, such as (but not limited to) breakwaters, jetties, piers, poles, and floating and fixed platforms.
The motion of the floaters, is transmitted to a shore- located, power station (located on land, just like a regular power station), which converts the energy from this motion into fluid pressure, which is used to spin a generator, producing electricity. One of our clear advantages is that only the floaters and pistons are located in the water, whereas all the technical equipment operates on land, thereby improving reliability and providing easy access for maintenance and repair.
The floaters are fully equipped with sensors which continuously monitor the performance of the various subsystems and surrounding ocean environment. As a result, Data is transmitted to shore in real time.
In the event of upcoming storms, the system automatically “recognizes” the type of waves, and independently “decides” whether to raise the buoys over the water level, or to create a process of buoy submersion into the ocean, in order to protect the system from mechanical damages.
When the wave heights return to normal, the system unlocks and recommences energy conversion and transmission of the stable and clean electrical power to the grid.
At large scale commercial size sea wave power plants, the waves will enable the lifting significant amount of floaters, which will enable a continuous energy production and a smooth output.
