Each of the two or more dynamic resonance control mechanisms is independently operable so that a selected one or more of the two or more dynamic resonance control mechanisms can be opened or closed to provide a desired effective length of the duct. 4 or 5. In each OWC unit, each inlet opening of the OWC duct has two vertical structural bracing members to support the width/span of the lower horizontal limb of the duct. In other embodiments, the longitudinal axis of the lower limb of the duct is arranged to be substantially parallel to the longitudinal axis of the base structure.

In yet further preferred embodiments, the first and second segments are substantially the same length. It will be appreciated that the direct passage for the airflow to the duct, in combination with the ability of the turbine to rotate uni-directionally in response to the bi-directional airflow, advantageously results in a simple and efficient construction and avoids the need for additional complex arrangements and/or mechanisms such as one-way valves or gates to direct the airflow in a particular manner appropriate for the turbine.

It has been found that facing the inlet opening of an L-shaped duct towards the oncoming waves in particularly advantageous in enhancing the amplification of the rise and fall of the ocean waves produced in the oscillating water column within the duct, leading to corresponding increases in the amount of energy captured from the ocean waves, enhanced efficiency of the system and greater electrical output for a given wave action.
Preferably, the secondary duct is shaped such that when it is connected to the OWC duct, the combined duct has a generally S-shaped construction. The use of durable concrete for construction of OWC ducts is also advantageous as it significantly reduces any ongoing maintenance costs. In some preferred embodiments, the angle between the first segment and the flow control segment is approximately 135°. In some preferred embodiments, the angle between the second segment and the flow control segment is approximately 135°. It will of course be appreciated that the respective angle between the first and second segments is not limited to these examples, but rather could be any suitable angle for producing a gradual change in direction for water flowing through the duct and thereby reduce turbulence within the duct. It will be appreciated that the cross-sectional area of the duct is not limited to the above listed shapes, but may take any suitable shape including polygonal and irregular shapes.
In shallow water applications, the breakwater base structure may advantageously be a gravity based structure which sits on the seabed under its own weight, avoiding the need for foundation piles which require costly labour intensive and time consuming processes to install. Preferably, the turbine includes a turbine rotor assembly for extracting energy from the oscillating working fluid, the turbine rotor assembly including: a hub rotatable about a central axis; a plurality of blades mountable to the hub about the central axis, each blade having a leading edge and a trailing edge, wherein the leading edge and trailing edge are configured to be complementary in profile to each other such that the blades can be mounted in close fitting edge-to-edge proximity to each other. Each of the plurality of ducts is preferably arranged to face in the same direction relative to the prevailing ocean wave. The combined turbine/generator unit 10 includes a housing 13 which surrounds the turbine rotor blades 12. The housing 13 is preferably shaped to assist in directing airflow towards the rotor blades 12. The combined turbine/generator unit is advantageous due to its ease of installation it water based environments and the associated reduction in installation costs.. Fisiopatologia del dolor lumbar
