A Prototype of DEAP Ocean Wave Powered Generator
Ocean wave power is emerging as a particularly attractive form of renewable energy. Dielectric Electric Active Polymers (DEAP) have has been used to transform electrical to mechani¬cal energy in an actuator mode. However it has few applications in a generator mode. This paper introduces a new concept of “New Renewable Energy” and presents a prototype of DEAP ocean wave powered generator, which has been developed at Knowledge Discovery Laboratory (KDL), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The DEAP prototype could be easily extended to other applications such as human-power generator, conventional power generators, and wind power applications.
