Optimum use of wave energy using OWC system
April 14th, 2011
Engineers Modesto Amundarain and Mikel Alberdi have presented the first two PhD theses at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) on the use of oscillating water column (OWC) converters for extracting renewable energy from waves. According to these two engineers, the technology of the plant, currently being built in the coastal town of Mutriku in the Basque province of Gipuzkoa, is the most suitable for taking advantage of energy from the waves along the Basque coast.
Both research theses present proposals for enhancing the operation of this kind of plant. Mr Amundarain's thesis (Control of wave-driven turbo-generators) puts forward a number of strategies for...
