A new solution for the sea wave exploitation. A linear ironless generator

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution

Abstract

The exploitation of sea wave represents an important frontier for the energy sustainability in the next future. Despite the proposal of several techniques and solutions, commercial devices are not available. In this context, the Department of Engineering is investigating an innovative solution based on linear energy generators. This machine can be adopted as the main component in a wave energy converter, that is the device for the energy extraction of sea wave. Starting from an existing prototype, the paper examines the replacement of the iron stator with a non-magnetic material, in order to solve several common problems of linear generators, such as the cogging force. Results are reported, considering the no-load voltages and the cogging force produced by the generator in both cases.
