Wave Energy Converter

As the bulge waves travel down the tube and arrive at the stern, the pressure in the chamber ahead of the power-take-off cycles above and below the tubes rest pressure. During the high pressure part of the cycle, water passes through a set of non-return valves into an accumulator where pressure is allowed to build up. A smoothed flow of water then passes from the accumulator into a conventional hydraulic turbine which drives an electrical generator. On exit from the turbine, the water is accepted into a low pressure accumulator and is then drawn through another set of non-return valves back into the main tube during the low pressure part of the bulge wave cycle. Anaconda uses an entirely new way of harvesting wave energy. • Wave energy occurs due to movements of water near the surface of the sea. Waves are formed by winds blowing over the water surface, which make the water particles adopt circular motions. This motion carries kinetic energy, the amount of which is determined by
