... of the present study was to demonstrate that this problem can be solved by taking advantage of the geographical conditions. Since the area in question is near the ocean where maritime conditions would allow to solve this problem using a wave energy converter designed with the Water Energy Column method. Wave...

...SPIN ACCELERATING MECHANISM FOR GYROSCOPIC WAVE ENERGY CONVERTER Akio Toyoshima1, Hiroshi Hosaka The University of Tokyo Chiba, Japan ABSTRACT Many wave energy converters have been developed so far, but there are still many engineering problems to be applied to fishery buoys. Gyroscopic generators...

... Ocean waves constitute a massive source of renewable energy. However, ocean wave energy is highly underutilized. In the present work, a new approach for wave energy harvesting is discussed. A direct-drive rotor is employed as a key component of a wave energy converter (WEC). The rotor absorbs...

... harvesting devices. The present research focuses on the development of a wave energy converter (WEC) that is expected to have negligibly low cost on installation and maintenance. To achieve this goal, a new working mechanism is applied. The enabled WEC is a surface-floating device. It can be loosely anchored...
