Wave Energy Conversion Overview and it's Renewable Energy Potential for the Oil and Gas Industry
MetadataShow full item record
Ocean energy conversion has been of interest for many years. Recent developments such as concern over global warming have renewed interest in the topic. Part II provides an overview of the energy density found in ocean waves and how it is calculated. Part III of this study focuses on wave energy converters (WEC) as opposed to ocean current energy converters. The point absorber, terminator, and attenuator WEC devices are addressed with regards to their operation and function. In Part IV, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette WEC concept is introduced and a look is taken at the market potential and how WEC devices can be applied in the Gulf of Mexico. A special look is also taken to suggest what use WECs may have in the Gulf Coast region.

Energy-Efficient Dry-Type Distribution Transformers: New Opportunities to Cut Energy Bills and Lock-in Long-Term Energy Savings deLaski, A.; Suozzo, M. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1998-04)Nearly 90% of the electricity that powers the industrial sector flows through dry-type distribution transformers. These transformers are very efficient- most convert in excess of 95% of input power to output power. However, ...
