In other embodiments, the ballasting sequence described above may be implemented, but the float motion is supplemented with a controlled application of generator damping. It may be desirable to adjust the position of the HCS 116 for any number of reasons, including but not limited to, variation in sea states, variation in weather, and/or changes to mission requirements. In other embodiments the nacelle may be described as two or more (e.g., three as shown) connected, substantially watertight modules 118, 120, 122. In some such embodiments, a center module 122 may be an empty buoyant shell, which may contain power generation, maintenance, and/or other equipment, or may be used for any other suitable purpose. For example, some embodiments may have two independently movable HCSs 116, each mounted to one spar (e.g., 104 or 106). In other embodiments, a HCS may be indirectly attached to the spars 104, 106 via a flexible member (e.g., cable, rope, chain, or any other tethering device).

In various embodiments, the drive shaft/hub 202, 203 may be sealed to the module 118, 120 and/or the spar-nacelle connection member 201 by one or more shaft seals 212 to prevent the intrusion of seawater and/or harmful foreign objects/debris. In power generation applications, such rotary-driven PTOs may include one or more rotors 204, which are rotatable in relation to one or more stators 206. Depending on the application, stators 206 may be independently rotatable or retained in a fixed rotational position relative to the nacelle 102. Relative rotation between the rotors 204, stators 206, spar-nacelle connection member 201, and/or the module 118, 120 within which the PTO is housed may be achieved by way of drive bearings 208, or any other bearing or similar mechanism which allows one or more components to freely rotate about or within another component. The first float drive shaft/hub 202 may be operatively connected to a first float drive arm 112 adjacent the first module 118 while a second float drive arm 114 adjacent the first module 118 may be idle and freely rotatable about the spar-nacelle connection member 201 on a second float idle bearing 214. In various embodiments where allowing uninhibited 360-degree rotation of the floats 108, 110 is desirable, the second float drive shaft/hub 203 may be operatively connected to a second float drive arm 114 adjacent the second module 120 while a first float drive arm 112 adjacent the second module 120 may be idle and freely rotatable about the second float drive shaft/hub 203 on a first float idle bearing 215. In such embodiments, employing this asymmetrical design may enable the positioning of first float drive arms 112 and first float 108 within the region defined by second float drive arms 114 and second float 110 as described above with reference to Figs.
The method for generating power also comprises a second step of deploying the WEC in a wave field. Modularity may also allow for “at sea” maintenance and fault tolerance. The International Energy Agency has declared a 2030 goal for wave, tidal and other marine energy sources of the creation of 160,000 direct jobs and a savings of 5.2 billion tons of C02 emissions. This allows for both forward sides 108a and 110a to achieve optimized wave energy capture, the aft float to have a deeper draft, and enables cost reductions by making both floats from a single mold. 8F depicts a single mooring leg approach.

Many embodiments in accordance with the present disclosure include a mooring system, which may be designed to keep the WEC 100 on station relative to a wave field (not shown) without over-ranging the electrical line 810. The mooring system may be any of a slack, low-column, mid-column, or high-column mooring system having one or more mooring lines that attach to WEC 100. In some embodiments, the mooring system may also be used to control yaw of the WEC 100 relative to the wave field.

It will be apparent in view of this disclosure that, while ladders are depicted herein, any suitable vertical transport device (e.g., escalators, elevators, lifts, dumbwaiters, etc.), or even no vertical transport device at all, may be used in accordance with the present disclosure and may, for some embodiments, be preferred. However, while ladders are depicted herein, it will be apparent in view of this disclosure that any suitable vertical transport device (e.g., escalators, elevators, lifts, dumbwaiters, etc.), or even no vertical transport device at all, may be used in accordance with the present disclosure and may, for some embodiments, be preferred. Changes may be made, within the purview of the appended claims, as presently stated and as amended, without departing from the scope and spirit of the present invention in its aspects. However, it will be understood that, in view of this disclosure, one skilled in the art may readily design alternatives to the above for transferring rotary power to a PTO mounted within a nacelle and that these embodiments are within the scope of this disclosure.

In further such embodiments, a first module 118 and a second module 120 each houses one or more rotary-driven power take offs. The First float may be operatively coupled to a first power take off and positioned to rotate about the central longitudinal axis within a radial span bounded by an outer surface of the nacelle and a radially distal end of the first float, and the second float may be operatively connected to a second power take off or the first power take off and positioned to rotate about the longitudinal axis within a radial span bounded by a radially distal end of the first float and a radially distal end of the second float. In further embodiments the first float 108 and 8 PCT/US2013/062579 WO 2014/052953 first float drive arms 112 may be positioned within the spars 104, 106 as depicted in Figs.
This approach is both more efficient and better able to handle the extreme range of power found in the ocean. In the most extreme weather conditions, when all measures are necessary to assure survivability, the first float 108 and second float 110 may be ballasted with water to submerge both into a vertical orientation as depicted in Fig. In another aspect, a method for generating power is provided comprising a first step of providing a WEC comprising a buoyant nacelle having a central longitudinal axis, a first spar and a second spar, each mated to the buoyant nacelle, a first float, and a second float. In such motorized control modes, the first PTO may be driven as a motor to drive the overtopped float into the correct orientation. Dolor fuerte de espalda lado derecho . This damping control mode acts similar to a ratchet mechanism, or soft ratchet, promoting motion of an overtopped float toward the correct orientation.

At trough 502, water moves entirely in a reverse surge motion along a velocity gradient having a maximum velocity adjacent the surface of the water. To maximize energy capture, the wave energy converter should be excitable by the maximum amplitude vector in all 360 degrees of the wave at the free surface of the water, thus a device should be free to absorb energy in the three degrees of freedom described as pitch, surge, and heave and be located at or near the water’s surface.
Dolor Sordo Costado Derecho
This problem stems from a variety of considerations, including that existing wave energy conversion devices typically lack adequate protection mechanisms from extreme conditions, suffer from relative mechanical unreliability, and fail to fully capture the rotational energy of a wave. The combination of buoy shape, CG and inertia will ultimately affect the phase and amplitude of WEC response to the incoming wave. For the U.S. specifically, the electricity practically available from wave power is about 252 TWh/yr or approximately 6.5% of US electricity demand.

In operation, as depicted in figures 6 and 7, the WEC 100 is excited by the incoming waves to pitch, surge, and heave, resulting in a pitching orbital pattern described below. However, it will be apparent that WECs 100 in accordance with the present disclosure may be larger or smaller depending on variations in the circumstantial inputs described above.
