Abstract [en]

Since mankind found out that she is the reason to the recent global warming shehas, in some societies, begun a conversion of her society, from driven by fossil fuel tosustainable fuel. One of these is so called wave energy.CorPower Ocean's wave energy converter consist of a buoy, which through a wire,is connected to a shaft in the plant. This shaft drives two gas lled and pressurisedpistons, which stores the energy from the buoy's upward motion and returns it at thebuoy downward motion, aiming at evening the energy production over the cycle. Inthe wave energy converter there are several seals, between hydraulic uids, betweenhydraulic uids and the gas pistons as well as between the plant and the surroundingocean where the shaft exits the plant.To select the right kind of seals the range in the working temperature of the surroundinguids need to be known, as do the load of the waves on the shaft. This inorder to select seals of the right material and to construct a linear guide.The purpose of this thesis is to acquire the initial demands for the seal and linearguide. In other words make a thermal analysis of the surrounding environmentin order to select seals and an initial load analysis in order to construct a robustlinear guide.The result is that in order to control the temperature, a reservoir volume shouldbe added to the cylinders and a change in this volume gives the most eect on thetemperature and compression rate. Regarding the linear guides, slide rings on bothsides of the two outer seals should be enough. This thesis should be viewed as aninitial analysis of the sealing problem to be able to outline the demands on the sealsand linear guides related to the gas compartments.

Abstract [sv]

Sedan manninskan ck reda pa att hon ar orsaken till den senaste tidens globalauppvarming har hon, i nagra samhallen, paborjat en omstallning av sitt samhalle,fran fossila branslen som drivmedel till langsiktigt hallbara drivmedel. Ett av dessaar sa kallad vagkraft.CorPower Oceans vagkraftverk bestar av en boj, som genom en vajer faster i endragstang i sjalva kraftverket. Denna dragstang driver tva gasfyllda och trycksattakolvar, som lagrar energin fran bojens uppgaende rorelse och aterger den vid bojensnedgande rorelse, med malet att dessa jamnar ut kraftproduktionen over cykeln. Iverket nns era tatningar, mellan olika hydraulvatskor, mellan hydraulvatskor ochgaskamrarna samt mellan verket och det omgivande havet dar dragstangen gar ut urverket.For att kunna valja ratt tatningar maste spannet i arbetstemperatur pa de omgivandeuiderna, samt lasten fran vagorna pa dragstangen, vara kanda. Detta foratt tatningar av ratt material ska kunna valjas och en linjarguide konstrueras.Detta arbete syftar till att ta fram de initiella kraven pa tating och linjarguide.Med andra ord gora en termisk analys av den omgivande miljon for att kunnavalja tatningar samt en inledande kraftanalys for att kunna konstruera en robustlinjarguide.Slutsatsen blir att for att styra temperaturen, bor en reservoirvolym laggas till cylindrarnaoch en andring av volymen pa denna ger storst eekt pa gasens temperaturoch kompressionsgrad. For linjarguidens del bor det ga bra med glidringar pa badasidor om de yttersta tatningarna. Det exakta valet av tatingslosning kommer Cor-Power Ocean dock att arbeta fram med ett lampligt foretag. Denna uppsats ska sessom en inledande analys av tatningsproblemet for att kunna ange huvuddragen avkraven pa tatningar och linjarguider relaterade till gascylindrarna
