Oscillating Wave Surge Converter
Technology Description The Tide Current Converter is based on the direct interaction between a magnetic electric and fluid flow field when a conductive fluid moves through a magnetic field electrical power is generated directly inside the fluid volume In this marine application the sea water itself is the conductive fluid A static antenna like structure generates the magnetic fields and at the same time taps the electrical power from the fluid current The configuration resembles a dynamo the sea water being the rotor and the antenna the stator The main advantage of the Magnetohydrodynamics MHD conversion is the absence of moving mechanical drive train components which make contemporary systems vulnerable and maintenance demanding
