New Wave Energy Converter Design Inspired by Wind Energy | News | NREL

New Wave Energy Converter Design Inspired by Wind Energy February 8, 2018 Conceptual rendering of the variable-geometry, fixed-bottom oscillating surge wave energy converter developed as part of an NREL Laboratory Directed Research and Development project. Illustration courtesy of Joshua Bauer, NREL Our planet’s energetic seas offer a significant opportunity for researchers. Wave energy converters (WECs) capture electricity from ocean surface waves, but the new industry requires fresh ideas to reduce the cost of energy. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researcher Nathan Tom and the wave energy research team took inspiration from the pitch control of wind turbine blades to develop a new design for WECs. When wind speed increases, turbine control systems adjust the pitch of their blades to account for the added load, which also ensures that the rotor speed does no...
