Triboelectric Nanogenerators Market to Develop With New Innovation: Researchers Develop Sphere-Based TENG That Can Convert Waves into Electricity

Posted On August 13, 2021     

Conventionally energy extracting technologies such as wind turbines and photovoltaic panels have several limitations. The problem essentially lies in their inability and intermittency to uphold continuous operation. In cases where there is no daylight or wind, neither of the two systems can provide power. In a time of ocean buoys, a credible solution could be ever-present wave energy. There are numerous positive reasons for using waves as they are predictable, abundant, and consistent. Thus, an ocean wave can potentially be used for powering navigation buoys.
 
This may be so, but the development in the wave energy converter sector has been rather slow due to lack of technological consensus, low-frequency nature of waves at sea, and uncompetitive energy generation costs. 
Now, a research team might have brought a solution to the existing problems with their new development. They have successfully created sphere-based TENGs (Triboelectric Nanogenerators) that have the ability to convert mechanical motion into electrical power. The innovative devices is a huge breakthrough for Triboelectric Nanogenerators Market as it can be easily incorporated into navigational buoys and provide electricity with the help of ocean waves.
 
The team tested their TENGs on a 1:8 scale in real-time conditions. They discovered through their experiments that times when waves are at the height of approx. 0.1 meters every 2.6 seconds (close to the natural period of the buoy), a voltage generated would be its maximum. At times, when waves are slow, TENGs' energy conversion effectiveness was still better than current generators.
 
 In regards to wave energy, there are still many hurdles that need to be overcome against the viable deployment of conversion technologies. The science still does not have answers on irregular times of waves and about energy distribution amongst both frequency and direction.
 
Nonetheless, researchers have indeed contributed greatly to the Triboelectric Nanogenerators sector by developing one that can help produce energy from a medium that is far more likely to be consistent and widely available near ocean buoys than wind or sunlight, both of which are extremely unpredictable to ascertain.
