Title (EN) DRIVE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE D'ENTRAÎNEMENT
Abstract:
(EN) A drive assembly is provided suitable for aiding in the conversion of wave energy to useful energy. The drive assembly of the present invention is arranged to transfer wave energy to an energy converter, the drive assembly comprising,an actuating member having an actuating length. The drive assembly further comprises a movable energy transfer member arranged to be coupled to an energy converter and arranged to transfer energy from the actuating member to said energy converter. The drive assembly further comprises an energy storing member comprising a biasing member coupled to one or more of: the actuating member, the energy transfer member; the energy storing member being arranged to cause the actuating member or the energy transfer member to move position. The actuating member is arranged to move the energy transfer member from a first stroke position to a second stroke position; and the first stroke position and the second stroke position define distal end points of a working stroke; the working stroke arranged so as to drive said energy converter.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble d'entraînement qui est adapté pour aider à la conversion de l'énergie des vagues en énergie utile. L'ensemble d'entraînement de la présente invention est conçu pour transférer de l'énergie des vagues à un convertisseur d'énergie, l'ensemble d'entraînement comprenant, un élément d'actionnement ayant une longueur d'actionnement. L'ensemble d'entraînement comprend en outre un élément de transfert d'énergie mobile conçu pour être couplé à un convertisseur d'énergie et conçu pour transférer de l'énergie de l'élément d'actionnement audit convertisseur d'énergie. L'ensemble d'entraînement comprend en outre un élément de stockage d'énergie comprenant un élément de sollicitation couplé à un ou plusieurs éléments parmi: l'élément d'actionnement, l'élément de transfert d'énergie; l'élément de stockage d'énergie étant conçu pour amener l'élément d'actionnement ou l'élément de transfert d'énergie à se déplacer de position. L'élément d'actionnement est conçu pour déplacer l'élément de transfert d'énergie d'une première position de course à une seconde position de course; et la première position de course et la seconde position de course définissent des points d'extrémité distale d'une course de travail qui est agencée de façon à entraîner ledit convertisseur d'énergie.
