FIGs 15-18 show aspects of a sequence under operation of an actuated propulsion embodiment, showing how, in one implementation, actuated tendons 7 may sequentially rotate vertebra plates 4 which impart force onto the Attorney Docket No. In such embodiments without the CS fins 5, the vertebra plates 4 may be widened FIG 28. During fabrication, forces may be applied to the longitudinal strips 20 in their relaxed state to create deformations in the longitudinal strips 20. The vertebra plates 4 may be coupled to the longitudinal strips 20 and elastically or variably coupled to the central member 6 via tendons 7 in some implementations.

19861-003PC3 a first end to a first restraining component 4901. The second end of the plurality of transducers may be affixed to a second restraining component, wherein the plurality of transducers are maintained in ma state of excited equilibrium by connections to the first and second restraining components 4905. In some embodiments, the maintained state of excited equilibrium may be caused by an elongation of tendons, an applied pressure, and/or the like. For actuated embodiments, actuation of the tendons 7 will cause them to lengthen or shorten, thereby changing the internal energy state of the CS fins 5 and thereby causing the position of the deformation, or deformations, to Attorney Docket No. In yet another implementation of the propulsion embodiment, the central member 26 is flexible and may be induced to bend in any direction via one or more actuated longitudinal tendons 27 which connect to each other end- to-end forming one or more rows of longitudinal tendon 27 lines that run parallel to the flexible central member 26, FIGs 39-40. Actuation of the longitudinal tendons 27 causes them to change in length.

Figure 5 is a perspective view of an apparatus according to the invention including a plurality of hydroplanes; Figure his a side view of the apparatus of Figure 5; s Figure 7 is a view of a part of an apparatus similar to that of Figures 5 and 6, showing an example of a means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; Figure 8 is a schematic representation of one means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; Figure 9 is a schematic representation of another means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; Figure 10 is a schematic representation of a further means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; Figure 11 is a schematic representation of a further means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; Figure 12 is a schematic representation of a further means for adjusting the angular orientation of the hydroplanes; and Figure 13 is a side view of an apparatus according to another embodiment of the invention in which respective first arms are connected by a linkage.
19861-003PC3 tendons 27 on only one side causes the central axis of the mechanism to curve towards that side, and the mechanism will veer in that direction. It is to be understood that the tendons 7 of propulsion and generator embodiments may be configured as transducers and may be comprised of a number of different components. First arms 440, 441 Is are connected by a linkage 442 comprising parts 443, 444 and 445. Dolor de espalda solucion . Parts 443 and 445 are connected to arms 440, 441 respectively and move about axes 440a, 441a in fixed relation to their respective arms 440, 441. Parts 443 and 445 may be formed integrally with respective arms 440, 441. Parts 443 and 445 are pivotally connected to respective ends of a linking member 444. The relative size and position of the parts 443, 445 with respect to each other and to first arms 440, 441 is selected so that hydroplane support structure 283 moves, under the influence of hydroplanes 280-282 along a substantially linear (in the illustrated case, nominally vertical) movement path.
In the illustrated example, the respective first arms 14a, 14b are fixedly attached to meshing gears 26a, 26b (shown schematically). It is much preferred that the angular orientation of the hydroplane 18 is actively controlled during the movement cycle by a suitable control means in order to optimise the power output of the apparatus 10. For example, the control means may receive and process data such as the instantaneous location, speed and acceleration/deceleration of the hydroplane 18 and external data such as the current speed and adjust the angular orientation of the hydroplane 18 accordingly, for example to begin the deceleration of the hydroplane 18 at an appropriate point, to minimise the time at which the hydroplane 18 is at rest at the extremities of its movement path B. to maximise the acceleration of the hydroplane in the reverse direction and, if appropriate, to determine the length of the movement path B in accordance with prevailing circumstances.
In one generator embodiment, the flexible sheet-like members may be coupled to vertebra plates so that movement of the deformations of the Attorney Docket No. 35 rotationally coupled to the vertebra plate 4 and fixed to the central member 6. Attorney Docket No. The elastic or variable coupled components may, in various implementations, be comprised of electroactive polymer material, a magnetostrictive material, a metal coil passing through a magnetic field, Attorney Docket No. 19861-003PC3 example, in some implementations, sequence programming in the memory or data structures may include time, place, and the amount and/or type of excitation to apply as it relates to the propagation of a wave. In some implementations, electrical energy from the transducer passes through generator control electronics and then to power conversion circuitry, and then to Attorney Docket No. For Attorney Docket No. November 12, 2009 (Attorney Docket no. FIGURES 34-38 illustrate some aspects of the sequences of operation shown in FIGs 29-33 from a closer view without the vertebra plate 4; Attorney Docket No.
Some of the propulsion and generator embodiments disclosed thus far have utilized rotary reciprocating motion of the vertebral plates, with the CS fins 5 coupled to the vertebra plates 4 so that the CS fins 5 undulate substantially in-phase with each other FIG 41. The longitudinal strips 20 also undulate Attorney Docket No. Alternative arrangements may provide that the hydroplanes are independently adjustable with, for example, each hydroplane having its own adjustment means. Dolor de busto y espalda . Thus, the, or each, hydroplane is rotated, typically by about 180 , so that power can be extracted from both ebb and flow (outgoing and incoming) tides. Thus the hydroplane 18 is caused to rotate to a selected one of a range of first positions in which the thrust generated by the action of the current on the hydroplane 18 urges the hydroplane 18 generally upwardly, or to a selected one of a range of second positions in which the thrust generated by the action of the current on the hydroplane 18 urges the hydroplane 18 generally downwardly.
Preferably, the means operative to adjust the angular orientation of the hydroplane is further operable to rotate the hydroplane with respect to the linkage means from a first orientation in which the hydroplane is operable with a current flow in one direction to a second orientation in which the hydroplane is operable with a current flow substantially opposite to said one direction.
In other embodiments, the hydroplane support structure may be a structure interposed between the linkage means and a hydroplane, on which a hydroplane is mounted. The term hydroplane, as used herein and as known in the art, refers to a body which is so shaped that, when there is relative movement between the body and the water surrounding the body (i.e. Hydraulic piston and cylinder arrangements 258 are provided as the primary power transmission means, of which pistons 259 are connected to the second transmission linkage member 257. Thus movement of the second transmission linkage member, caused ultimately by the movement of the hydroplanes, is converted into movement of the pistons 259, i.e. Figs 1 to 3) with corresponding adaptations to the linkage means. For generator embodiments secured in the directional flow of fluid, the kinetic energy of the fluid imparts force onto the flexible sheet -like member, causing the positions of the deformations to shift in the direction of the fluid flow.
There are also devices developed to harness the power of moving fluid, whereby an electromagnetic generator is coupled to the fluid, Attorney Docket No. 19861-003PC3 shift position. In shifting position relative to an ambient fluid, the deformations of the CS fins 5 may impart forces onto the ambient fluid to create a propulsive effect in some embodiments. FIG 5 may work equally well for propulsion and generator embodiments.
