Abstract [en]

The division of Electricity at Uppsala University runs a project called Lysekil project, they have designed a buoy that uses the waves to create electric power from a generator attached to the bottom of the sea.

Uppsala University is closely connected with the company Seabased and the university makes use of their facilities in Lysekil.

 

When they designed the buoy issues occurred, the geometric design was flawed, brackets with a short shelf life and it is generally uneconomic.

A study visit was done in Lysekil on Seabased facility. With this visit the project started, which is to improve the design of the buoy and the attachment of wires leading to the generator.

 

In this project we have chosen to use a beam system with three beams that are attached to the buoy. Then a wire attached to a plate that sits between the beams will be leading to the generator. Two proposals for construction are created, what distinguishes them are the brackets between the beams and the buoy.

From these constructions, the design that is considered most optimal for our project is chosen.

All parts of the buoy have been modeled and the drawings are designed in ProEngineer software.

The two constructions are compared with each other, but the whole focus is on the second and final structure.

 

The report begins with an introduction describing Lysekil project, and a task description of our project.

The project aims to produce an optimal buoy that will be easy to design, materials restrictive with good durability and an economical solution.

Wave power true function has been studied, mechanical and finite element analysis of beams, buoy and plate design.

This has been presented in this report, where in the various chapters can read more about the processes. Although the relevant facts and information on this project and buoy development is included. The calculations of finite element analysis are attached in the appendices, and a budget structure of the buoy.
