The ocean and its waves are unimaginable – I can’t count the number of times I was hit by a strong storm on the beach. I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences.
Obviously, one should respect the power of the oceans but what about using it as a kind of renewable energy instead of respecting it?
Above all, waves, light waves, sound waves, or ocean waves, are waves that transmit or transmit energy without moving the masses.
Therefore, in order to generate electricity from ocean waves, man only needs to convert the energy of the waves into mechanical energy in order to move the generator – this is the basic concept behind wave transformers.
One such transformer is a semi-interlocking “snake” -like Plammos wave converter that generates waves to generate electricity.
As the tide approaches, parts of the pyramids rise, and parts fall into the pool.
This relative movement between the parts causes the joints between the parts to move, which in turn converts the wave energy into mechanical energy to generate electricity.
The electricity generated by the pyramids is fed through the power cord along the coast and returned to the land where electricity can be used.
Cleverly, the elegant design of Pellais ensures survival in tropical conditions, allowing it to sink under the waves when the waves are too large and too strong to withstand.
Another simple, robust design is a vibrating water column.
This is a semi-interconnected room with two openings – one below the water line and one with a turbine above the water line.
As a wave approaches, water enters the column through the dial opening and pushes it upwards, increasing the pressure in the room.
The air is pushed through the turbine into the atmosphere, causing it to rotate and generate electricity.
When the storm passes, the water leaves the chamber, reducing the pressure, allowing air to enter the room through the turbine, and driving an electric generator to generate electricity.
The same principle is being played out again – converting the wavelength into mechanical energy – turning the turbine by the changes in the wind pressure – to generate electricity through an electric generator.
Due to the simple design and strength of the vibrating water column and the presence of subterranean components, it is a promising wave energy converter.
