Title: WAVE ENERGY CONVERTOR – BOUYANT PADDELS
Abstract:
A wave energy convertor is used for converting the kinetic energy of ocean wave or river/channel flow into electricity. The wave is captured by paddles (1) which would be dragged parallel to the wave for a given distance. Horizontal motion of paddles (1) would be converted to rotational motion through the use of a driving mechanism in order to generate electricity by utilizing a minimum of one generator (9). At least two paddles (1) are installed to create a quasi-continuous motion for a steady power output. The convertor is kept afloat and positioned parallel to incoming wave to maximize the utilization of available energy of a wave. The convertor can be either fixed to a certain height where the effect of tides are negligible or be height-adjustable if necessary. The convertor is anchored to seabed (18) so that the motion of wave is used for the benefit of moving the paddles (1).
