Sandia Engineers Increase Efficiency of Wave Energy Converters

Sandia Engineers Increase Efficiency of Wave Energy Converters

During a multiyear project funded by the Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office , the engineers, from Sandia’s Water Power program , are using modeling and experimental testing to refine how a wave energy converter moves to capture wave energy while also considering how to improve the resiliency of the device. Sandia engineer Ryan Coe said the researchers are “working to create methodologies and technologies that private companies can harness to create wave energy devices that will enable them to sell power to the U.S. grid at a competitive price.” Sandia’s wave energy converter is a 1-ton ocean buoy with motors, sensors and an onboard computer built at a scaled down size for testing. “These devices can be in open ocean and deep water, maybe 50 to 100 miles off the coast,” Coe said. “An array of wave energy converters, maybe 100 devices, connected to an und...
