Ocean Wave Energy Harvester Using Mechanical Modified Rectifier

Description:

The novel power take off (PTO) technology transforms the back-and-forth wave movement into a single-directional movement to more efficiently capture wave energy using the creative design of ball screw and one-way bearing. The new PTO will improve energy conversion efficiency and reliability with a very compact design, which solves the fundamental challenge of ocean wave-energy harvesting.
