This is the PTO stage 2 project summary report for the Artemis Intelligent Power Hybrid Digital Displacement® hydraulic PTO for wave energy project. The project will complete 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 will offer continuously variable control of loads in reaction to the wave forces on the wave energy converter (WEC). The hybrid system should represent a system close to the ultimate limits of performance for a fluid power WEC PTO system.
