Abstract

The research activities described in the present work aims to study the feasibility of using a gyroscope harvesting system, like the one of ISWEC, on a specific sailboat. A hydrostatic and a hydrodynamic analysis on the geometry of the sailing ship hull checked its stability whether in stationary case or when the boat is moving with different forward speed in a fixed sea state. Then, critical issues of a gyroscopic system designed for the ship dimensions were evaluated. In the end, a mathematical expression of power losses that occur was defined for the gyroscopic system with the variation of the scale factor.
