US6476511B1 – Floating Apparatus And Method For Extracting Power From Sea Waves – Google Patents

TIPS PARA ALIVIO DIARIO DEL DOLOR: Dolor en Cuello,Codo.. The joints may be alternatively be positioned with relative angles other than 90 degrees if a particular situation dictates. 10(a) are greater than the maximum movement 105 and the mean movement in FIG. Thus maximum power absorption by, and thus maximum power output from the apparatus is achieved by coupling its body members using joints orientated in different directions, by applying the roll bias angle (ψ) to the joints, by applying different constraints to each direction to induce a cross-coupled response of varying magnitude and form which may be tuned to suit the wave conditions, and by using a system of moorings to present the converter in a preferred orientation relative to incoming waves. Body members of any cross section may be provided with fins, bilge keels or other protrusions to add hydrodynamic damping to any direction of motion desired. The body members may be of any shape.

Frustrated curly haired woman suffers from headache, touches temple, drinks refreshing beverage after sleepless night, holds disposable cup of coffee, dressed in stylish outfit, isolated on green wall Typically, to limit loading, the body members have sufficiently small depth and freeboard to experience complete submergence and emergence in large waves. In this way large forces and angles are avoided in heavy sea conditions. In this embodiment the relative stiffness of the mooring wires 41, 42, 43, 44 are set up to allow the structure 1 to passively yaw in response to incident waves.

Each mooring wire 41, 42, 43, 44 has floats 45 and sinker weights 46 to provide a system with a defined stiffness. FIGS. 6a, 6 b and 6 c show a possible mooring system for the converter. For this purpose the apparatus may be configured such that, in use, the chain is positioned to span at least two wave crests. In this embodiment, the joints attaching the end segments 3, 4 are heave joints 5 a. With the exception of the end segments 3, 4, the segments 2 are of equal length. 10, which segments 2 of a structure of the invention in two wave profiles 28 of differing wavelength compared to mean horizontal water level 24. The wavelength λ is the distance between adjacent wave crests The line 29 joins the ends of the structure, and so the movement of any segment 2 of the structure relative to the mean instantaneous position of the structure is represented by the distance of the centre of the segment from the line 29. In FIG.

The spider 62 is supported on axis C relative to the first segment 2 a by hinge brackets 65 a and on axis D relative to the second segment 2 b by hinge brackets 65 b. A reinforced ram mounting pad 31 is secured to each segment, on a radial axis perpendicular to the axis 40 of the pin.

When the calculated maximum expected joint angle is exceeded, the converter has the in-built safety feature that each of the rams 33, 34, 35 is designed to detach from its rod end connection 36 whilst remaining attached at the cylinder end connection 37. This prevents rupture of the hydraulic hoses (not shown) connected to the ram cylinders and thus prevents spillage of hydraulic fluid into the environment.

4a. In this embodiment each joint 5 has a independent hydraulic system allowing individual joint characteristics to be varied as required. For this purpose each joint is controlled by three double acting hydraulic rams 33, 34, 35. Each end face of the adjacent units is provided with a pair of bearing blocks 30, through which a pin (not shown) passes to form a hinged connection. Dolor de rodilla al correr parte interna . This may be achieved by using an active or passive mooring system to present the converter at an angle to the waves appropriate for maximum power capture, or appropriate for survival, as required. Inclusion of the variable ballasting system provides an advantage in large waves. In one embodiment the system is incorporated in the lead (the ‘front’ or ‘upwave’) segment 3 of the converter 2. This encourages submergence of the front of the structure 1 in large waves, allowing large wave crests to pass over the whole converter, analogous to surfers diving under breaking wave crests when swimming from the beach.

La cirugía sería la mejor opción para tratar el dolor.. The large inlets 21 allow rapid filling of the tanks 20 as wave amplitude increases from a small amplitude 27 a, as shown in FIG. In the situation where the segments 2, 3, 4 are small with respect to the wave height, -for example in storm conditions-there is thus complete local submergence or emergence of the converter, a situation known as ‘hydrostatic clipping’. 6a & 6 b, in small waves when not much power is being absorbed, the converter presents a wide front to the incident waves. Preferably the apparatus is adapted to be situated in waves. The mooring system may be adapted to provide restraint or excitation to the apparatus for the purpose of modifying its overall response. Preferably the apparatus is adapted directly to convert the power absorbed from the motion of adjacent segments into electricity. Single degree-of-freedom joints (hinges) 5 link adjacent segments 2, 3, 4 of the structure 1 which comprises the structure 1. The joints 5 are of alternating sense.

More preferably each joint is orientated substantially orthogonal to an adjacent joint and substantially perpendicular to the main longitudinal axis of the chain structure. In one embodiment the cross-section is wedge shaped so as to cause a lateral (perpendicular to chain axis) shift of the centre-of-buoyancy of the body member as it varies its degree of submergence to alter the roll response of the apparatus to provide improved power extraction or survival.

In a preferred embodiment said cross section is wedge shaped so as to cause a lateral (perpendicular to chain axis) shift of the centre-of-buoyancy of said member as it varies its degree of submergence to alter the roll response of the system to provide improved power extraction or survival. Dolor de espalda en los primeros dias de embarazo . The front segment is optionally provided with a conical front end 10 to minimise drag in extreme seas, while the rear segment 4 has a flat rear end 11 to increase damping along the axis of the chain structure to add damping to the mooring response. The front end 10 of the structure 1 is conical.

For the converter to be able to self-reference the converter must be presented at an angle to the mean wave front such that it spans two crests of the front. As an example, for a converter of diameter 3.5 m and of length 132 m, deployed in seas with a wave period of 10 s, the optimum roll bias angle (ψ) is around 25 degrees.

Said system may be variable.

In calm weather, where wavelengths are relatively short, and wave amplitudes are small, there is a requirement to maximise power absorption by the converter. It can thus be seen that the relative damping applied to adjacent joints, in conjunction with selection of the roll bias angle (ψ), stimulates a tunable pseudo-resonant response allowing maximum power absorption from a given sea state. Thus power is extracted directly by converting the relative motion of adjacent sections 2 into electricity. Said roll bias angle may be varied to maximise power extraction. Said system may be variable. Said chain may be curved. The variable ballasting system may be situated in all segments 2, 3, 4, or in selected segments. 3 the segments 2 are connected by external in-line rams. A further alternative joint configuration employs internal in-line rams. An alternative embodiment employs the same configuration without seals.

Improvements and modifications may be made to the above without departing from the scope of the invention. Dolor en la muñeca al girar la mano . Said system may be actively or passively variable. Additionally or alternatively said elements may be power extraction systems. The mooring system may position the chain in a preferred site in the ocean. In practice, in the preferred method, the optimum roll bias angle (ψ) is selected for the site in which the structure is to operate, and the structure is installed with this predetermined roll bias angle, by means of differential ballasting and/or differential mooring. Typically the apparatus is configured such that its capacity to absorb power is controlled by the orientation of the joints and the differential restraint thereof. The apparatus is preferably self-referencing.
