Since its creation, PYTHEAS Technology has dedicated a large part of its R&D to renewable energies and has developed a unique technology to convert slow and variable movements into electricity. This low-RPM generator (Power Take-Off, PTO) can operate over large speed ranges (<1RPM à 50 RPM). The unique performances demonstrated offer several advantages:
- High efficiency, independent of the speed, even at low speed (<10RPM)
- Direct torque control using power electronics (MPPT, Regulation)
- Production of direct current by design (no rectifier needed)
Thanks to these results, PYTHEAS Technology’s generator is attractive for a large range of renewable energy sources: wind turbines, low head hydropower (water wheel, Archimedean screw), marine current and tidal turbines and wave energy.

Still in R&D, the piezoelectric generator can be adapted to your specific renewable energy project, let’s discuss to build together the perfect solution!
