More particularly, the buoy 10 also includes electrical generators 22 a-22 d driven by relative movement between the pendulum mass 20 and the base 16 to generate electrical power. The at least one electrical generator may be operatively connected between the base and at least one end of an arcuate swing arm.
9A, when the end 14 experiences a torque due to the movement of the pendulum 20 in a second or opposite direction, the upper clutch 48 a slips and the lower clutch 48 a engages the gear train 46. In both cases, the gear train 46 is connected to the generator 22 a and the movement of the gear train causes the generator to produce an electrical signal as will be appreciated by those of skill in the art. 8B slips and the upper clutch 48 a engages the gear train 46. Conversely in FIG. Dolor de hombro y brazo derecho . Many modifications and other embodiments of the invention will come to the mind of one skilled in the art having the benefit of the teachings presented in the foregoing descriptions and the associated drawings.

The electrical sensing circuitry 76 may be used in conjunction with the pendulum mass 20 embodiments as described with reference to FIGS. The sensor includes a base having a hemispherical recess therein with two electrically conductive regions. In other embodiments, electrical sensing circuitry may connected to the electrical generator, such as for sensing motion of the apparatus or sensor, that causes relative motion between the base and the body. The motion of the buoy 10 that may be captured is not limited to a single plane and can be in any principle plane or any circular or elliptical motion as can be seen with specific reference to FIGS. As understood with additional reference to FIG. When the end 14 experiences a torque due to the movement of the pendulum 20 in a first direction as illustrated in FIG. 1-6. In addition, conversely the embodiments including the sail 72 may be used to generate electrical power for a load as will be appreciated by those of skill in the art.
Like numbers refer to like elements throughout, and prime notation is used to indicate similar elements in alternative embodiments. FIG. 6 is a schematic front perspective view of an alternative embodiment of the pendulum mass in FIG. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In view of the foregoing background, it is therefore an object of the invention to provide an apparatus and related method to effectively generate electrical power, such as for self-powering applications, or to sense movement, for example.
FIGS. 2-5 are schematic front perspective views of a portion of the apparatus of FIG. The illustrated buoy 10 also comprises a sealed housing 34 for protecting the components of the buoy from environmental damage, for example. Each arcuate swing arm 12 a, 12 b has a semi-circular shape so that the pair of arcuate swing arms defines a hemi-spherical range of movement for the pendulum 20, for example. An example of a buoy used as a complex data gathering sensor is a moored buoy in the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) monitoring network.

The gear box 40 may provide an increase in rotational speed between the end 14 of the swing arm 12 a and the generator 22 a, and may provide directional clutches 48 a, 48 b so that only rotation in one direction is coupled to the electrical generator 22 a. FIG. 9B is a schematic diagram of a gear box operating in response to the pendulum mass movement illustrated in FIG. Picadura dolor muscular . 8A, then the lower clutch 48 b of FIG. One particularly advantageous application of the apparatus is for the self-powered buoy 10 as illustrated in FIG. The motion of the apparatus that may be captured is not limited to a single plane and can be in any principle plane or any circular or elliptical motion.
