The reaction plates 60 are purposely spaced such that the distances between them are unequal, this being for the purpose of overcoming harmonic up and down movement in the body of fluid in which they are placed and thus reducing the up and down movement of the wave energy converter in reaction to this harmonic movement within the body of fluid in the area of the reaction plates 60. The self-furling feature of the reaction plates is evident at 214b wherein a sudden and unusually large upward force lifts the wave energy converter more rapidly than should occur thus threatening its structural integrity. As a result, the lower body portion of the wave follower which, until now has been held virtually out of and above the surface of the body of fluid as a result of the load resistance (having being designed to be just enough less than the gravitational force acting upon the wave follower to unlock the device and allow the wave follower to track the falling wave,) drops down to a point where the buoyant upper body is floating on top of the surface and the lower chamber is submerged.

This invention is intended to offer a means by which these issues and challenges can be addressed more effectively than in the past. This design is intended to overcome the effects of local winds or currents running at an angle to the waves, these causing said wave follower to be aligned at an undesirable angle to said waves. This invention is intended to provide a means of greatly improving the efficiencies of these smaller devices, thus making them practical. This problem has been significantly reduced by attaching outrigger float assemblies made up of a buoyant element 54 being fixedly attached to a stiff arm 55 which is solidly affixed at 56 to the side panels 49 of the enclosure 47. These outrigger float assemblies protrude laterally out from the sides of the enclosure 47 on a more or less horizontal plane such that they float in the body of fluid in which the apparatus 201 floats but do not provide additional floatation for the apparatus 201, that being the exclusive function of the floatation collar 58. As the apparatus 201 may, from time to time, begin to rotate it’s open front 53 somewhat away from the oncoming waves, one or the other of the outrigger float assemblies will swing frontward toward the oncoming waves 67 while the one on the other side will swing backward away from the oncoming waves 67. The next oncoming rising wave will thus strike the more frontward rotated float first and being a rising or cresting wave will therefore attempt to lift the float 54, it being a buoyant body.

Throughout the above repeating cycle of rising and falling waves 52, the wave follower 20 continuously tracks these wave movements. FIG. 13. describes a wave energy converter 213 (as seen at 201 in FIG. 8 except that the driven assembly as seen at 209a converts two-way reciprocating motion to full, continuous rotary motion in one direction. 1, the floating wave energy converter as seen at 201 is comprised of an enclosure 47 which is designed to trap the energy of incoming waves.
Each disc shaped reaction plate is actually comprised of a plurality of sections 154 which are connected to each other or overlap each other at 155 such that distortion of the sections 154 is possible. Since the fluid in the open bottomed lower chamber 22 is of the same density as the wave and is actually a part of that wave, work is only required to raise the buoyant upper body 21 of the wave follower 20. The fall of the wave starts the downward stroke of the wave follower 20 (again, after overcoming the resistance of the loads 202a and 202b). As the falling wave trough is tracked by the wave follower, fluid in the chamber 22 will attempt to flow out of the opening at the bottom of the chamber 22. The one-way check valve 99 which is closed at times of pressure equilibrium or pressure drop, prevents the free outflow of fluid from the chamber 22. As the wave falls and the fluid outside the chamber 22 begins to fall away, that fluid in the chamber 22, being now held above the level of that fluid outside the chamber, is pulled down.
As the wave follower 20 rises, the piston 27 travels to it’s left (toward it’s nominal top) 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 of the cylinder 28 through the inlet at foot valve 37. As the piston 27 rises, thereby reducing the volumetric capacity in the upper part of the cylinder 28, the fluid contained within the upper part of the cylinder 28 above the piston 27 is pressurized and expelled through the outlet passing through the check valve 38 and through an outlet tube 41. Aliviar el dolor de rodilla . As the wave follower 20 now travels downward, so does the piston 27, 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 of the cylinder 28 through the inlet at foot valve 39. The fluid contained within the lower part of the cylinder 28 below the piston 27 is pressurized as the piston 27 is forced downward, reducing the volumetric capacity in this lower part of the cylinder 28 and is thus expelled through the outlet passing through check valve 40. The expelled, pressurized fluid from both the upward and downward strokes of the piston may then be gathered at 42 to power internal, external or separate and remote devices, systems or processes.
3, we see the pump assembly previously described being connected to the lever arm extension 172 by a pivotal joint 25. As fluid is pushed ahead of the rising piston 27 in the upper part 192 of cylinder 28, thereby reducing the volumetric capacity in that upper part 192 of the cylinder 28, that same fluid is pressurized to a predictable and measurable pressure range which is hydraulically transmitted through pressure tube 44 to an integrated sensor/solenoid valve 45. As long as the wave follower continues to rise while tracking the rising wave, the sensor/solenoid valve 45 remains closed, hence allowing the piston to force fluid out of the upper cylinder 192, through the check valve 38 and on through the outlet tube 41. As the crest of the wave reaches it’s maximum height and then begins to fall, the buoyant force which had been exerted on the wave follower by the rising wave begins to decrease.
Further, slightly preceding or immediately after a wave reaches its lowest point of travel, being in the trough, and begins to rise again, the load release and re-establish means momentarily reduces or eliminates the resistive load applied to the wave follower by the driven device, thus allowing said fluid (ballast) filled lower chamber to quickly fall, travelling the extra distance needed to become re-submerged.
In accordance with this invention, it is further possible to virtually double the output of the apparatus 202 as described to this point. The pump is pivotally attached at 30 to the relatively immovable enclosure 47 of the apparatus 202 by mounting bracket 29 which allows the pump to rock backward and forward in order to maintain alignment with the piston rod 26. The piston rod 26, being attached to pivotal joint 25, allows piston rod 26 to stay aligned with the rest of the pump assembly as the lever arm extension 172 rocks back and forth. As a result, the buoyant upper body portion of the wave follower which, until now has been virtually submerged as a result of the load resistance (having being designed to be just enough less than the buoyant force acting upon the wave follower to unlock the device and allow the wave follower to track the rising wave,) pops up to float virtually fully on the surface of the fluid because the wave follower has been dynamically balanced by the counterweight as was previously explained.

The bottom of the enclosure is open other than for a full or partial ramp 51 (which is described in a subsequent Figure). The wave follower 20 incorporates an upper body portion or flotation unit 21 which is made of any suitable buoyant material and a lower body portion 22, constructed in the form of a hollow chamber and having a complete or partial opening at its bottom. Dolor de espalda en adolescentes . The wave follower 20 further incorporates a counterweight 23 at an opposite end of and on another side of the fulcrum 24 of the lever arm 171 of the wave follower 20. This counter weight 23 serves to dynamically balance the wave follower 20 so that none of the buoyancy (potential energy) of the upper body 21 is converted and consumed to support the weight of the wave follower 20. Fixedly incorporated into the lever arm 171 of the wave follower 20 which moves more or less vertically up and down, is a diagonal, vertically oriented extension 172 which therefore, moves more or less horizontally back and forth.

FIG. 5. describes a wave energy converter 205 similar to that described in FIG. Once the wave follower 20 has “dropped” and the chamber 22 is re-submerged below the surface of the wave 52, the pressure sensor 185 detects a preset low pressure condition and the load on the wave follower 20 is re-established by re-closing the valve gates 193 of the sensor/solenoid valves 45 and 43. The load discussed above is made up of that resistance set up by the pump assembly 202a, the linear drive/generator assembly 202b and normal systemic resistances such as friction. Como tratar el dolor lumbar . 4 except that the sensor/solenoid valves 43 and 45 are electrically powered, receiving their power via cables 69 from a battery 70 which has been charged externally.
In trying to deal with this problem, others have relied on the local wind direction to align their devices. This capability will become apparent as more detailed drawings of the pump assembly 202a are described in FIG. This is achieved by converting the energy in the undulating waves into a useable form for the purpose of powering a variety of devices or processes. FIG. 4. describes a wave energy converter similar to that described in FIG. The lever arms 107/FIG. 11 are replaced with connector arms 104 which are fixedly attached with fasteners 105 to the wave follower 20 and pass through slots 106 in the inner floatation unit 100 to points 103 where they are fixedly attached to a drive shaft 174. The slots 106/FIG. 12 differ from the slots 121 FIG.
