The EEL tidal turbine, energy conversion by undulating membrane.
- The EEL Energy membrane optimises energy transfer by fluid/structure coupling. This induces a corrugation of the membrane.
- The membrane undulates under the pressure of the moving fluid. These periodic deformations of the structure are transformed into electricity via an electromechanical system.
- Energy is converted all along the membrane.
- A control loop optimises the energy collection according to the incident current.
- The technology is internationally patented.
