Title: WAVE POWER GENERATION DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided is a wave power generation device that is able to generate power in a satisfactory manner. This wave power generation device is equipped with paddlewheels (10), a hydraulic circuit (20) and a generator (11). The paddlewheels (10) rotate when water is received. The hydraulic circuit (20) has hydraulic pumps (22), an equalization circuit (25), a flow rate control valve (28), and a hydraulic motor (29). The hydraulic pumps (22) are driven by the rotation of the paddlewheels (10), and discharge operating oil (21A). The equalization circuit (25) is equipped with an accumulator (26) that stores the operating oil (21A) discharged from the hydraulic pumps (22), and the flow rate control valve (28). The operating oil (21A) discharged from the hydraulic pumps (22) and the accumulator (26) flows into the flow rate control valve (28), and then the operating oil (21A) is discharged at a prescribed flow rate. The hydraulic motor (29) is driven by the inflow of the operating oil (21A) discharged from the flow rate control valve (28). The generator (11) is driven by the rotation of the hydraulic motor (29), and generates power.
