Abstract

This paper describes the design build and test of a linear test rig for demonstrating novel topology linear machines. The work is aimed at aiding the developments of power take off for wave and tidal energy converters. The rig consists of three parts: prime mover, test machine and converter. Experience and method for the design manufacture and initial testing of each of these components is detailed.

Additional Information: This paper describes the design build and test of the UK's only large-scale linear generator for wave energy converters. It is located at the UK's centre of excellence, the New and Renewable Energy Centre. Linear generators are an important enabling technology for electricity generation from wave power, because of its inherently reciprocating nature. The project is ongoing and is presently being funded by NPower under their Juice scheme (ref. 20), contact is Helen.Steed@npower.com.
