The budget will be used for:
1. Hydraulic Pumps - Two competing power take-off technologies will be tested separately: a) industrially available double acting reciprocating linear cylinder pumps, and b) large scale diaphragm type pumps.
2. Carpet Material - Carpet materials will be purchased from an industry partner and expert in elastomers.
3. Wave Gages - In order to evaluate the efficiency of the prototype under various sea states, the essential values that are to be determined experimentally are the wave height before and after the device and the generated flux. This will be measured with Wave Gages and a non invasive Electromagnetic Flowmeter.
4. Magnetic Flow Meter - For high accuracy real time measurement of the system's performance, a magnetic flux measurement instrument will be purchased.
