||PCT/IN2014/000282||EESAVYASA TECHNOLOGIES PVT. LTD||CHAKRAVARTHY D.P.|
In this method of invention, tidal waves are subjected to undergo constant collisions with hydraulic kind of systems which enhances the pressure on the rear side of the container. As the pressure exceeds due to continuous hit of tidal waves, compressed air of very higher psi is produced in carefully designed cylinders which can withstand high pressures. These cylinders are used as a fluid source to drive turbines without penstock kind of lapses found in hydral power generation methods and can continuously produce clean and green power.
