An innovative mechanical motion converter for sea wave applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The paper shows an innovative system designed and developed by University of Palermo. The device is based on a simple mechanical converter able to transform a variable bidirectional linear motion into a unidirectional rotary motion. This technology can be successful used in sea wave applications, producing a mechanical output usable for the electrical energy production.
