Title (EN) WAVE ENERGY GENERATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME HOULOMOTEUR DE GÉNÉRATION D’ÉNERGIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a wave energy generation system for generating electric energy from waves. The system comprises a base structure (2) and a floating structure (3), where the floating structure is movable in relation to the base structure when influenced by waves. The base structure (2) comprises a substantially vertical post (22). The floating structure (3) comprises a housing (31) with a central opening (32), where the floating structure (3) is provided substantially around the vertical post (22). The floating structure (3) is movably connected to the post (22) by means of primary hydraulic cylinder devices (44), where the primary hydraulic cylinder devices (44) are hydraulically connected to an energy converting device (73) for converting hydraulic energy in the fluid flow caused by wave movements to electric energy. Secondary hydraulic cylinder devices (45) are provided in the central opening (32) between the post (22) and the housing (31) to maintain a distance between the housing (31) and the post (22).
(FR)L'invention concerne un système houlomoteur de génération d’énergie destiné à produire de l’énergie électrique à partir des vagues. Le système comporte une structure (2) de socle et une structure flottante (3), la structure flottante pouvant se déplacer par rapport à la structure de socle sous l’influence des vagues. La structure (2) de socle comporte un pylône (22) sensiblement vertical. La structure flottante (3) comporte une enveloppe (31) dotée d’une ouverture centrale (32), la structure flottante (3) étant placée sensiblement autour du pylône vertical (22). La structure flottante (3) est reliée de façon mobile au pylône (22) par le biais de dispositifs primaires (44) à vérins hydrauliques, eux-mêmes reliés hydrauliquement à un dispositif (73) de conversion d’énergie servant à convertir l’énergie hydraulique contenue dans l’écoulement de fluide provoqué par les mouvements des vagues en énergie électrique. Des dispositifs secondaires (45) à vérins hydrauliques sont installés dans l’ouverture centrale (32) entre le pylône (22) et l’enveloppe (31) pour maintenir une certaine distance entre l’enveloppe (31) et le pylône (22).
