Water & Energy Harminization, Tools from the Aim-Alpine Spece in Moviment Project

Il WaveSAX è un sistema innovativo del tipo OWC (colonna d’acqua oscillante) per la generazione di energia elettrica dal moto ondoso, concepito per essere installato in strutture marine, come porti, dighe foranee, opere di protezione delle coste, piattaforme off-shore, altri.

WaveSAX is an innovative OWC (Oscillating Water Column) device for the generation of electricity from wave power, conceived to be installed in marine structures, such as ports, breakwaters, shore protection works, off-shore platforms, others. A WaveSAX 1:5 scale model has been tested in the ocean tank at Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France) aiming to analyse the behaviour of the device, including different turbine configurations of three and four blades, with regular and irregular wave conditions.

The performance of the device has been satisfactory, both in terms of response to incident wave conditions and quality of the measured data, with particular concern to the available power in the rotor. Essential information on key parameters has been clearly understood, such as the turbine performance for regular incident waves, the response to irregular waves climate, cut-in velocity, limitations and efficiency of power take-off.
