N2 - The parametrically excited pendulum has been attracting significant interest with recently being involved in the development of a wave energy converter. The capability of establishing rotational motion is however restricted by the quite low frequency of ocean waves. Introducing a design of a tri-pendulum instead of a simple pendulum could provide a solution to that obstacle. In this paper, an experimental investigation of the response of a tri-pendulum to parametric excitation is presented. The target is to achieve rotational response of the tri-pendulum and highlight some of the particularly useful characteristics of this design such as the configurability and flexibility of its size without affecting its functionality.
