Title: DEVICES FOR CAPTURING KINETIC ENERGY FROM OCEAN CURRENTS AND WAVES
Abstract:
High capacity devices as well as a plant for generating electricity, capturing kinetic energy from ocean currents and sea waves by means of fluid deflectors mounted on endless belts (or endless chain), comprising continuous and progressive capture power modules, mounted on floating structures are maintained with respect to the sea level wherein hydraulic flows passing through said structure linearly operating the fluid deflectors, in a cumulative mechanical process of energy capture, to then start a conversion process of primary power and finally a conversion process of the accumulated primary power in stable electrical power and which is conveyable to a land electrical substation. The plant comprises an anchor, floating structures, a plurality of kinetic energy converters from water or waves currents into a primary energetic flow, a converter room for converting primary power into conveyable electric energy and an electric control and protection system.
