Ocean Wave Energy Utilization
Abstract:The exploitation of ocean waves in electricity production, potable-water production, waterbody revitalization and farming is discussed. Those energy-conversion technologies that are now at the prototype stage are described. The systems are those that are resonant in nature, since resonant systems have been found to be the most efficient. The efficiency of these systems is due to both diffraction-induced wave focusing and possible impedance-matching.
