(WP3) EMG prototype design and fabrication

The completion of WP2 will provide a set of specifications for the design and fabrication of the EMG prototype, which will be realized by UMBRA. Specifications will mainly concern axial screw force, speed, stroke, and required damping values for optimal power capture. Based on this the EMG design will take place and the main components of the prototype will be designed to ensure they withstand the design loads (extreme and fatigue) and they can be manufactured/assembled with existing processes/tools. In addition, Bureau Veritas will perform a Failure, Modes, Effect, and Criticality Analysis to obtain a preliminary assessment of the EMG reliability.
