Abstract:
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) contracted the University of Plymouth to prolong the deployment of its prototype Multiple Oscillating Water Column (MOWC) wave energy device. The prolongation of the sea trials period allowed the generation of physical data from which an evaluation of the concept and an estimation of the overall conversion efficiency achieved during the sea trials period could be calculated. This report gives a brief background to the origins of the prototype device and presents the methodology for the analysis of the prototype conversion efficiency, calculated for the period of the sea trials as 34.5%. This report can be found at: "http://www.dti.gov.uk/energy/renewables/publications/pdfs/v0600190.pdf"
