Abstract

Worldwide the demand for sustainable energy is increasing. To balance the production capacity and the demand, electrical energy needs to be stored for a period of time. One of the potential solutions is the storage system of Ocean Grazer 3.0. This machine will be positioned at the bottom of the ocean and transforms wave and wind energy into potential energy which can be stored and finally be transformed into electrical energy. The Ocean Grazer 3.0 is a novel concept which pumps water from a rigid reservoir into a flexible ‘bladder’ reservoir, storing potential energy which can be harvested using hydrostatic pressure of ocean water to send a water flow through a generator, from which electricity will be generated. A proof-of-concept of the Ocean Grazer 3.0 has been built, in this integration project it is investigated using principles of photogrammetry, to get a 2D model of the movement of the bladder. This model is compared to an existing 2D COMSOL model, with this data the 2D COMSOL model can be improved in the future. This is needed to find more efficient designs and to upscale to project.
