Title: (EN) A device for the utilisation of wave energy and a method
Abstract: front page image
(EN) The invention relates to a device for the utilisation of wave energy, with an increased efficiency. Thereto, the device according to the invention comprises - a Darrieus rotor having at least two Darrieus rotor blades, wherein the Darrieus rotor has a solidity σD, and - a Wells rotor having at least two Wells rotor blades, wherein the Wells rotor has a solidity σW, wherein - the Darrieus rotor and the Wells rotor are rotatable about a common axis of rotation A, and - σW is larger than or equal to σD. The invention also relates to a method for harnessing wave en¬ ergy.
