Generation of Electricity from Ocean Waves

Project Abstract / Summary : Abstract-Electricity has now become the fourth basic need of humans. The sole aim of the project is to generate electricity from a renewable source of energy such as wave energy. In this project we have demonstrated that how electricity can be generated from wave power using an offshore buoyant moored device. The buoyant moored device basically is a floating type device which is responsible for the conversion of energy in ocean waves to electrical energy. The project covers the design, assembly, performance calculation and demonstration of the buoyant moored device. The project is a small scale demonstration of a buoyant moored device which will be actuated manually by hand. The reason for manual actuation being that it was not feasible both economically and dimensionally to create sufficient wave power through wave formation to actuate the piston cylinder arrangement.

Why did you choose to work on this project topic : We wanted to harness electricity which is clean, free and reliable. Wave energy is at it's nascent stage for its development so we think we can contribute towards its development. Also, in future, through our project we can get pure water from ocean water through desalination and RO processes.

Project Highlights : Being at the transition stage from becoming an engineer to entering the industrial realm we think our project is reliable enough to achieve what it is aimed for. Win or lose, we can surely tell that our project can make a difference in the world which is most needed at the moment.
