Wave energy technologies Wave energy technologies onsisc t of a number of omponenc ts: 1) the struc - ture and prime mover that captures the energy of the wave, 2) foundation or mooring keeping the structure and prime mover in place, 3) the power take-off (PTO) system by which mechanical ener gy is c onverted in to elec tricalFile Size: 2MB.

Wave and wind energy has a larger potential during the winter which is a nice synergistically effect with solar energy where the largest potential is in the summer. 5 Area Efficient A wave farm that is occupying less than a half square mile of an ocean would generate Wave energy conversion book than 30 MW of power – the equivalent of British homes.

Wave power is the capture of energy of wind waves to do useful work – for example, electricity generation, water desalination, or pumping water. A machine that exploits wave power is a wave energy converter (WEC). Wave power is distinct from tidal power, which captures the energy of the current caused by the gravitational pull of the Sun and and tides are also distinct from ocean.

Waves have a lot of energy. Waves form as wind blows over the surface of open water in oceans and lakes. Ocean waves contain tremendous energy. The theoretical annual energy potential of waves off the coasts of the United States is estimated to be as much as trillion kilowatthours, or the equivalent of about 64% of U.S.
