Design and Testing of a Linear Generator for Wave-Energy Applications. Hodgins, N., Keysan, O., McDonald, A., & Mueller, M. A. *IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics*, 59(5):2094–2103, may, 2012. Paper doi abstract bibtex A linear generator topology is proposed for wave energy applications. The main significance of the generator topology is that the relative position of the magnets, copper and steel has been chosen so that there are no magnetic attraction forces between the stator and permanent magnet translator. The lack of magnetic forces and the modular nature of the generator topology makes the manufacture and assembly of the generator easier than a conventional iron-cored permanent magnet linear generator. Analytical modelling techniques are described with a genetic algorithm optimization method. The proposed topology is implemented to Archimedes Wave Swing wave energy converter. A 50 kW prototype has been built to prove the concept and the no-load and load test results are presented.
