Pendulum Generators

All kind of devices to generate power from ocean waves have been thought and invented, the list is to big and it is bigger if we consider all variations possible to these basic system, in this section we will take a short review of the pendulum type, this type can accommodates a large number of different versions and the possibilities to connect it to any other conceivable power generation device is immense, only  limited by the system designer imagination.


Pendulum With Compressor  

The figure below illustrates a possible configuration for a waves energy generator in which a floating tank is attached  to an arm and then this is fixed to a pole structure that supports the complete system, the reciprocating compressor can be attached in the front side of the arm or can be connected in the back. The efficiency of the system will depends on a care full system design and the proper ocean location, as in any other waves energy generation system the bigger the amplitude and the period regularity of waves are essential for the successes of the project. Due to the multiple possibilities no details on how a compressor works are explained here.
















Pendulum With Flywheel Gears

This system uses the same pendulum principle to convert the oscillating energy of the waves into rotational movement, it uses a floater attached to an arm connected to a flywheel that turns

as the ocean waves, this flywheel translates this partial rotary movement to a full 360 degrees or more, from here any other device can be connected to an electrical generator or any mechanism.

The floater can be made to turn freely or fix, but freely rotation could be better in reducing the pressure exerted by the floater over the structure and to improve the overall efficiency.
