New Lab Offers Mobile, Specialized Testing for Wave Energy Converter Power Take-Off Systems

A new facility at Sandia National Labs offers mobile, specialized testing for systems that produce power from wave energy. The Sandia Wave Energy Power Take-Off (SWEPT) Lab tests wave energy converter (WEC) power take-off (PTO) systems. WECs are unique because they convert the oscillatory mechanical energy from ocean waves to generate electricity. This makes them [...]
