Development of a wave energy converter

the objective of the present project is the investigation and development of a system which allows taking advantage of the energy of the waves, to produce electrical energy. Studying of the hydrodynamic, mechanical and electrical conditions that govern the operation of an electrical wave energy generator, we are able to elaborate, from the acquired knowledge, prototypes to carry out the pertinent tests in a pilot plant, under the conditions of a real operation. In addition with the previous statement with the purpose of analyzing the energetic efficiency of the generator developed. The goal of the project is to develop an innovative energy pendulum generator which benefits from the movement induced by the waves on an electromechanical system, in charge to transmit that kinetic energy coming from the sea to the system of an electrical generation. ).
