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