The laboratory experimental study of a model of the FWEPS module

The key assembly of the FWEPS is an arrangement transforming the oscillatory energy of capsule-float to rotational energy of electric generator. For experimental simulation of processes in the FWEPS dynamic system a small-scaled test bench with experimental model was designed.

The test bench is destined for the study of movement sustainability, power transmission, amplitude-frequency response, phase and other relationships at different values of weight mass, movement period, spring stiffness, damping factor, amplitude of exciting force and other parameters.

The study makes possible to search optimal conditions of an oscillatory system action and its optimal matching with the load as well as to estimate a practical efficiency of the converter.

The experimental study has shown that the mechanical actuator with an oscillatory system being one of its main parts can be used as a drive for an electric generator in the given type of energy converter.
