  • Abstract The purpose of this thesis is to develop a novel design of the oscillatory type of wave-energy acquisition system. It is aimed to increase the efficiency of wave-power acquisition from random sea. The main feature of the new system structure is its flexibility to adjust the system dynamics to satisfy two optimal criteria. The effects of various system parameters on the system dynamics and acquired power were analyzed. To find the set of system parameters to acquire the highest power, an optimization searching method was adopted. Finally, a regression model was established to help the user to calculate the optimal system parameters under various application conditions.
    The study first indicated that to acquire high power from sea wave the dynamic characteristics of the system should satisfy two criteria. However, the study also revealed that the dynamic properties of a traditional acquisition system are difficult to fulfill the two criteria in a wide frequency band. Accordingly, a new system structure was proposed. It is composed of a traditional acquisition system and a vibrating platform. The platform is linked to the acquisition system through a spring. Because of the coupling effect, the dynamic characteristics of the acquisition system are altered. The effects of varying different system parameters on the locations of pole or zero of the transfer function of acquisition system were examined. It was shown that with a proper choice of system parameters, the frequency bandwidth satisfying or close to the two criteria may be increased. The study indicated that acquired power of the proposed system is higher than the traditional one by 34%.
