    PELAMIS’s Hydro Dynamical Analyses and Mechanism Design of Wave Energy Converter Device (Semi-PELAMIS)

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Saeidi Hamid Abad, Mohammad (Author) ; AbbasPour, Majid (Supervisor)
    Pelamis is a semi-submersible device that can extract wave energy and converters that to electrical power. It has 5 cylindrical structure that connects through the joints. This device takes the shape of wave and the wave forces tubes to had angular relative motion together. The Main task of this device is to convert the angular movements of tubes to the Linear movement of pistons. External mechanism called the energy capture device are responsible for absorbing wave energy through angular movements, and then the internal mechanism, called the Power Take-Off, are responsible for converting this energy into the electrical power for use in the electricity grid. This device was designed and...
