A push-pull transducer for ocean wave energy harvesting
November 4-6, 2019
Ocean wave energy is one of the primary energy sources, which is available during day and night, in various weather conditions. It was previously proven that energy harvesting from ocean waves could be used to generate electric power to supply sensors or small electronic devices located in buoys. Using a combination of various energy harvesters would enable more remote and unmanned future offshore sensor applications that can facilitate more effective monitoring and control. In this study, we successfully demonstrated a simple, low-cost and environmentally friendly energy harvester which can be optimally used as an Ocean Wave Energy Harvester (OWEH).
