The EWP technologies (The Wave Clapper and the Power Wing) are “smart” wave generation systems, which use uniquely, shaped buoys to capture and convert wave energy into low-cost, clean electricity.
While examining the operation principles of wave energy convertors with traditionally shaped buoys, we came to the conclusion, that such shapes enable generating only a calculated amount of power at the expanse of lifting force of surfacing. However, the possibility to recover from an incident flow was not utilized. As a result, we have improved the buoy shapes, in a way which enables generating power both at change of water level and from an incident flow. When the “Wave Clapper” and “Power Wing” are operating at different height of waves, their buoys provide a stable operation at different waves’ height.
