Air turbine development and assessment for wave power plants

Air turbines were studied to meet theneeds of designers of onshore and off-shorewave power converters. The useof the Wells turbine as a prime moverin wave power plants was assessed indetail. Results were collected on theperformance of the Wells turbine andguidelines developed for selecting themost appropriate air turbine for a givenwave power application. By decreasingcapital and operating costs this tech-nologyshould help make wave energya more attractive option for developers, industry and consumers.
