Thus the mechanical advantage modifier means allows for earlier unlocking and therefore, travel of the wave follower, rendering it operable in times of smaller than normal wave heights when other devices designed for normal wave patterns would cease to function due to their inability to unlock at smaller wave heights. The unique self-furling reaction plates 60 here described are very stiff toward their centre and become progressively more flexible toward their outer edges–such that they will “give” progressively to the degree required to eliminate or minimize the potential for the apparatus 201 being damaged in the event of sudden, extreme and unusual upward, downward or lateral forces being applied to the apparatus 201, generally due to major storms or tsunami waves. Because the force of the load on the wave follower 20 has caused the wave follower 20 to become virtually submerged as it tracked the rising wave, releasing that load allows the wave follower 20 to continue rising in that it “pops” up by a distance equal to the thickness of the buoyant upper portion 21 of the wave follower 20. While no work is accomplished during this “popping up,” the wave follower 20 is, nonetheless, now positioned to benefit from extended working travel as it tracks the next falling wave 52. Once the wave follower 20 has “popped” and the buoyant upper body 21 is floating on the surface of the wave 52, the pressure sensor (185/FIG. 3-203b) detects a preset low pressure condition and the load on the wave follower 20 is re-established.

Likewise, as the wave 52 approaches or reaches its lowest point and no more work can be accomplished by the wave follower 20 moving downward, the load release and re-establish means 202c senses either the levelling off of, or the beginning of a change of direction of the wave, or a drop in pressure (now in the lower portion 303) of cylinder 28 and again releases the load on the wave follower 20. Because the resistance of the load on the wave follower 20 has caused the wave follower 20 to be held above the body of fluid to a height nearly that of the thickness of chamber 22 as it tracked the falling wave, releasing that load allows the wave follower 20 to continue descending, even as the wave reaches its lowest level, in that the wave follower 20 “drops” down (due to gravity pulling on that water in the lower chamber 22 held above the level of the wave) by the thickness of the chamber 22. While no work is accomplished during this “dropping,” the wave follower 20 is, nonetheless, now positioned to benefit from extended work producing travel as it tracks the next rising wave 52, to begin the cycle again.

The pump cylinder 28 is fixedly mounted into, or is simply a part of the tube which forms the support member 59 of the apparatus 210. As the wave follower 20 falls, the piston 27 travels upward within the relatively immovable cylinder 28 creating a suction within the cylinder 28 below the piston 27. This action causes fluid to be pulled into this lower part 303 of the cylinder 28 through the inlet at foot valve 37. Also as the piston 27 rises, thereby reducing the volumetric capacity in the upper part 111 of the cylinder 28, the fluid contained within the upper part 111 of the cylinder 28 above the piston 27 is pressurized and expelled through the outlet and check valve 38 and then through an outlet tube 41. As the wave follower 20 then reverses direction with the rising wave 52, the piston 27, changes its direction of travel, thus reversing the action within the cylinder 28. This now creates a suction within the cylinder 28 above the piston 27. This action causes water to be pulled into this upper part 111 of the cylinder 28 through the inlet at foot valve 39. The fluid contained within the lower part 303 of the cylinder 28 below the piston 27 is pressurized as the piston 27 is forced downward, reducing the volumetric capacity in this lower portion 303 of the cylinder 28 and is thus expelled through the outlet and check valve 40 and then through outlet tube 41. The expelled, pressurized fluid from the upward and downward strokes of the piston is gathered at 42 to power internal, external or separate and remote devices, systems or processes.
More particularly, this invention relates to a double acting device capable of extracting energy from a greater percentage of both the rising and the falling waves than do other similar devices. In order to convert this potential energy to work or a useable form of energy it is necessary to cause the moving wave follower 20 to react with a more or less immovable device or component capable of doing work. This is done in a manner which allows any linked driven component or device to accomplish more work than would a similar apparatus without this novel feature. There is immediately a corresponding drop in fluid pressure applied in the lower cylinder 192b. Dolor lumbar dormir . As soon as the pressure sensor 185 in the sensor/solenoid valve 43 (as shown at 203b/45) determines that this pressure drop exceeds a preset amount it activates a solenoid switch mechanism 187 which in turn opens a gate 193 in valve body 186. The pressurized fluid, until now being applied against the driven load by the piston 27, is now provided with a path of minimal resistance through the opened valve 186, and on down a bypass tube 184. At the same time that the sensor 185 in the sensor/solenoid valve 43 caused the valve gate 193 in that sensor/solenoid valve 43 to open, it simultaneously caused the valve gate 193 in the sensor/solenoid valve 45 to open as well, thereby opening a clear passage into the upper cylinder 192. Thus the fluid to be evacuated from the lower cylinder 192b can enter the upper cylinder 192 freely and quickly.

Also, the load release and re-establish means will allow the wave follower to respond more efficiently to local storm waves which are superimposed upon the larger wave swells, thereby increasing the effective output of the apparatus. A load release and re-establish means may be any hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical, electromechanical or other means whose function is to momentarily release the wave follower 20 from the driven and systemic loads of the apparatus 202 such that the wave follower 20 is allowed to find it’s own level without the influence of these load resistances. Slightly preceding or immediately after a wave reaches its highest point of travel and begins to fall away, the load release and re-establish means momentarily reduces or eliminates the resistive load applied to the wave follower by any driven device, thus allowing the buoyant upper body portion of the wave follower to quickly travel the extra distance needed to refloat itself.
Likewise, as seen at 214c, the reaction plates 60 flex upward 159 in reaction to unusually large and sudden downward forces being applied to the wave energy converter. As these float 139 attempts to pull the reaction plates 136 and 145 upward to the surface 52 of the fluid body, the reaction plates 136 and 145 are prevented from doing so by anchor cables 144 which are fixedly attached to anchors 143 firmly in place on the earth or floor 147 beneath the body of fluid, the anchors 143 being attached to the forward reaction plate 136 by a mooring eye 142 and to the rearward reaction plate 145 by another mooring eye 142. In this way the reaction plates are held essentially vertical. A lever arm 107 is attached in each of the slots 123 to the wave follower 20 by a trunnion pin 108 or some other similar means providing for vertical pivoting of the lever arms within the slots 123. The trunnion pin 108 is fixedly attached to each of the two wave follower sections on either side of the slot 123. This is repeated at all of the four joints 130. The lever arms 107 pass through other slots 121 found in the inner floatation unit 100 and are pivotally attached at a sliding bearing slot 112 at another end to a trunnion block 302. The trunnion block 302 is fixedly attached to a reciprocating drive shaft 174 whose function has been explained in FIG.
These pulleys, both turning clockwise, drive a belt (or chain) 190 which in turn drives a pulley 196 fitted with another overrunning clutch 189 which drives a driven member as represented by 78 in a clockwise direction 191. The rack 81 is linked to the lever arm extension 172 by a pivotal joint 25, said link being through a mechanical load release and re-establish means 216a (further described in FIG.
The effect of gravity on the guy wires 135 is offset by the attachment of small, appropriately sized floats 140 to the guy wires, these floats 140 being rigged, where necessary, with warning flags 141 for the benefit of approaching vessels. Also, the suction effect created, and surface adhesion both pull the wave follower 20 down as the wave falls. 1. is replaced with an inner floatation unit 100 which protrudes through the centre of the wave follower 20. Dolor de espalda durmiendo . Both the floatation collar 58/FIG. 1 and the inner floatation unit 100/FIG. 10 serve the same function in terms of the operating principles of the devices in that they both eliminate the need for the wave followers 20 to use up otherwise convertible energy by holding the complete apparatus afloat.
