    • Analysis and dynamical modeling of a piston valve for a wave energy converter 

      Cruz Gispert, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, 2014)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      The Ocean Grazer, a novel wave energy converter, has been proposed by the University of Groningen. The system can collect and store multiple forms of ocean energy, with a pistontype hydraulic pump as its core technology. In ...
    • Dynamical modelling, analysis and optimization of a floater blanket for the Ocean Grazer 

      Clemente Piñol, Sílvia (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Groningen, 2014)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      The Ocean Grazer is a novel ocean energy collection and storage device, designed to extract and store multiple forms of ocean energy. This work aims to study and model the interaction between sea waves and the Ocean ...
    • Mechanical design of the Ocean Grazer's floater blanket 

      Vidal I Mauricio, Sergi (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-10-03)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Rijksuniversiteit Groningen / Ocean Grazer
      Nowadays, global warming is in the order of the day, as the majority of the countries are experiencing heat waves and other insalubrious atmospheric phenomena continuously. Some countries in Europe, such as United Kingdom, ...
    • Nonlinear control design for wave energy converter 

      Galván García, Bruno (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Groningen, 2013)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      In this thesis, we study the optimization of a single-piston pump system for use in a new wave energy converter by using a feedback mechanism. The first part of the thesis is dedicated to the optimal determination of ...
    • Stresses and deformation analysis of the storage system structure of the Ocean Grazer 

      Altarriba Subirana, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-04-24)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   Rijksuniversiteit Groningen
      The global warming of the planet, mainly due to the excessive use of fossil fuels, and the consequences that are related to this phenomenon have implied a substantial increase in the bet on cleaner and more sustainable ...
