The generating means also includes first and second unidirectional coupling means which respectively couple rotational movement of the first frame in opposed directions to the respective first and second electrical generators. The first frame 36 is adapted to be pivotally mounted to the second frame 56 for rotational movement about a first axis extending between the centers of side legs 38 and 42. Further, the first frame 36 is preferably oriented in a substantially vertical position when in a static or rest condition. 7, there is shown an alternate embodiment of the buoyant body 14. In this embodiment, the buoyant body 14 is in the form of a barge or large floatable water craft 140 which is floating on the surface of the body of water 12 and is adapted for pivotal rocking movement in response to waves impinging upon the sides thereof. In this manner, the generated power may be utilized to provide power for equipment, such as beacons, lights, radio transmitters, etc., which are mounted on the buoyant body 14. Alternately, the generated power may be transmitted directly to any remote electrical utilization device.
First and second transmission means are connected between the first and second unidirectional coupling means and the first and second generators to increase the amount of angular rotation of the first frame which is input to the respective first and second electrical generators. A tachometer 133 is operatively connected to the gyroscope 46 for providing an indication of the amount of angular rotation of the gyroscope 46. A two position switch 134 is connected to the tachometer 133 and is responsive to the rotational speed of the gyroscope 46 so as to energize the motor 50 if the rotational velocity of the gyroscope 46 is below a predetermined minimum value and to energize the generator 50 to extract kinetic energy from the gyroscope 46 if the rotational velocity of the gyroscope 46 is above a predetermined maximum value to thereby decrease its rotational velocity.

Referring now to the drawing, and to FIGS. In this embodiment, the transferring means comprises compression springs which are attached at one end to the second frame and to the buoyant body at the other end to transmit the oscillatory motion of the buoyant body through the second frame to the first frame causing the first frame to rotate relative to the second frame. The mechanism 10 of the present invention further includes means, operatively coupled to one of the first and second frames 36 and 56, for generating electrical power in response to the relative rotational motion of one frame resulting from the interaction of the gyroscope 46 and waves impinging upon the buoyant body 14. In general, the generating means includes one or more electrical generators, means for directionally coupling one of the freames to the generator and transmission means for increasing the amount of angular rotation of the one frame which is input to the electrical generator.
Also, the mechanism of the present invention is ideally suited for use as a stand-alone power device for light buoys, etc., as well as an auxiliary power source for water vessels. The gyro-wave energy transducer includes a gimbal having first and second frames, with the first frame being pivotally mounted to the second frame for rotation about a first axis and the second frame being pivotally mounted to the buoyant body for rotation about a second axis perpendicular to the first axis of rotation of the first frame. Thus, among all possible modes of pivoting motion of the buoyant body 14, referred therein as pendulum motions, two modes exist in the form of principal rotation about an axis parallel to the pivoting axis of the second frame 56 and about an axis parallel to the pivoting axis of the first frame 40. Colchon muy duro dolor de espalda . All other oscillation modes are the resultant motions of the above referred specific modes.
An inertia storage device 46, such as a spinning wheel or gyroscope, is mounted to the first frame 36 for rotation about an axis through its center. The teeth 90 are formed such that the teeth 90 on the drive member 73 will engage the corresponding teeth 90 on the driven member 80 when the first frame 36 and drive member 73 rotate in a counter-clockwise direction, for example, but will slip or slide past the mating teeth 90 in the driven member 80 when the frame 36 and the drive member 73 rotate in the opposed, clockwise direction. Biasing means 91 in the form of a coil spring is disposed around the drive shaft 74 and abuts the drive member 73 urging the drive member 73 into engagement with the driven member 80; but allowing the drive member 73 to slide past the driven member 80 when rotated in a clockwise direction.

Further, the mechanism of the present invention is capable of converting pitch, roll and heave motions of the waves into usable energy. The mechanism of the present invention is designed to efficiently convert substantially all of the potential and kinetic energy of the waves into usable electrical energy and is ideally suited for use in a large variety of applications as well as under different and continually changing wave fronts. This results in compactness and significantly less maintenance for the mechanism of the present invention compared to similar prior art wave energy devices. Thus, these devices require additional maintenance in order to maintain them in an operating condition or require the use of expensive, noncorrosive material for their construction. For another, the operative components of such devices are exposed to the water for their operation and thus are subject to the harsh and corrosive effects of the sea water.

The battery 102 is suitably connected by leads or wires, not shown, to the motor/generator 50 for supplying power to the motor/generator 50 for driving the gyroscope 46 and for extracting kinetic energy therefrom in the form of electrical current. In a second embodiment, the first and second electrical generators are operatively coupled to the second frame by means of serially connected unidirectional coupling means and transmission means. The shaft 74 extends outward from one of the side legs of the first frame 36, such as side leg 42. The drive shaft 74 has a plurality of external splines 76 formed at the outward end thereof which engage correspondingly formed internal splines 78 in the drive member 73. A driven member 80 of substantially cylindrical form has an integrally connected put shaft 82 extending outward therefrom. In this embodiment, the first and second electrical generators are fixedly mounted to the buoyant body.

The mechanism uniquely utilizes a gimbal system incorporating a spinning gyroscope which is mounted to a buoyant body floating in the body of water. Dolor en las articulaciones en niños . The mechanism also includes a gyro-wave energy transducer which is mounted on the buoyant body for transforming the pendulum-like motions of the buoyant body into rotational motion. A plurality of outward extending vanes or arms 30 extend outward and are joined to the buoy 16. Each of the vanes 30 has a substantially hydrofoil or propeller blade-shaped cross sectional configuration to maximize the pressure gradient exerted on the vanes 30 by the water. This invention relates, in general, to an apparatus for generating power and, more specifically, to an apparatus for generating electrical power from wave motion on a body of water. Although a large variety of wave motors or devices for extracting power from wave energy have been devised in the past, the commercial use of such devices has been slow.
