Abstract:

Wave activated turbine generator buoys were tested at Chesapeake Light 14 miles off Cape Henry, Virginia and in Boston Harbor. The buoys were instrumented to record cumulative power generated and later modified to record sea state as well as other variables pertinent to turbine operation. Results are presented as long-term power generation, power generation as a function of wave height and period, and transfer functions from spectral analysis of data. Author
