New inertial sea waves energy converter (new ISWEC). National and international patent

View it on Knowledge Share

Priority number(s): 2009IT-TO00422



The presented system is an energy converter, using gyroscopic effects to generate electrical power from the sea waves. The device consists of an external hull that is sealed and constrained to the seabed through a slack mooring. The rocking movement induced by the waves triggers the gyroscopic system placed inboard, which in turn actuates two rotary generators and produces electricity.
