Hybrid Digital Displacement® hydraulic PTO for wave energy
Artemis Intelligent Power Ltd
The project completed the next stage of work to integrate Artemis Digital Displacement Pump-motor (DDPM) technology into a state of the art Power Take-Off (PTO) system to produce a new ‘hybrid’ with a combined capability greater than the sum of the parts. The highly innovative system offers continuously variable control of loads in reaction to the wave forces on the wave energy converter (WEC). The hybrid system represents a system close to the ultimate limits of performance for a fluid power WEC PTO system.
