The objective of this Build & Test was to prove that the Osmocean wave-powered batch reverse osmosis (BRO) system is physically realizable. Through a comprehensive and systematic engineering process, the optimal components for the WEC-side Osmocean coupling were procured, assembled, and tested. The results indicate that a control effort developed for the main loop throttle valve successfully tracks input signals meant to simulate interaction with the BRO system to within 6% error. Future work will include developing a controller for the kidney loop throttle valve to assist in keeping the main loop flow rate constant as well as the direct coupling and synchronous testing of the WEC-side to BRO.
