Title
(EN) ARRANGEMENT FOR CONTROLLING WATER FLOW AT EDGE OF RECIPROCATING PANEL ELEMENT OF A WAVE ENERGY RECOVERY UNIT
(FR) AGENCEMENT POUR COMMANDER UN FLUX D’EAU AU NIVEAU D’UN BORD D’UN ÉLÉMENT DE PANNEAU EFFECTUANT UN MOUVEMENT DE VA-ET-VIENT D’UNE UNITÉ DE RÉCUPÉRATION D’ÉNERGIE DES VAGUES
Abstract
(EN)
This invention relates to an arrangement for controlling water flow at an edge of a reciprocating panel element (2) of a wave energy recovery unit (1) equipped with at least a control system, in which arrangement the panel element (2) is hinged onto the base at the bottom of the sea with the help of support structures (3) and support shafts (5). The arrangement comprises adjustable water flow adjustment means (4a, 4b, 4c) at least at one edge of the panel element (2).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un agencement pour commander un flux d’eau au niveau d’un bord d’un élément de panneau (2) effectuant un mouvement de va-et-vient d’une unité de récupération d’énergie des vagues (1) équipée d’au moins un système de commande, l’élément de panneau (2) étant relié, dans l’agencement, de façon articulée sur la base, au fond de la mer, à l’aide de structures de support (3) et d’arbres de support (5). L’agencement comprend des moyens de réglage (4a, 4b, 4c) de flux d’eau réglable placés au moins au niveau d’un bord de l’élément de panneau (2).
