A scientist has been tasked to create electricity by using the energy that is generated by ocean waves.
As electricity is generated by ocean waves, an Interface load cell will measure tether line tension using a submersible ITCA Tension and Compression Load Cell. The mooring line was attached to the load cell base and the platform generator was connected to the load cell hub. This measured the forces that were generated by the ocean waves and data was later analyzed by the customer’s Data Acquisition System (DAQ).
Scientists used force data to make adjustments to tether line. Also, if tether line breaks free, the scientist can be notified immediately to reattach the tether line.
