Study of Generation of Electrical Energy from Ocean Waves

Shruti Patil | Jitesh Thakare

Abstract: Electricity has become basic demand of humans. For the growing environmental awareness and increase in energy demand crisis, use of renewable sources has become popular. Renewable energy sources includes solar, wind, hydroelectric, ocean waves, etc. The use of ocean waves for generating power is promising because two-third part of the earths surface is covered by ocean, which allows us a wide access across the globe. Large amount of kinetic energy is offered by ocean waves i. e. it is found to be 0.2 % of untapped energy of ocean waves which would provide power sufficient to supply whole world. In India as we are heading towards using renewable energy sources to fuel human activities, the utilization of solar energy in generating electric energy is more as compared to other renewable energy sources. Basically, there are 2 types of ocean energies namely thermal energy due to suns heat and mechanical energy from tides & waves. Ocean can be considered as heat engines as it converts thermal energy which is produced due to suns heat into kinetic energy of waves & currents. In this project, we plan to study how electricity can be generated from ocean waves using a combination of offshore buoy and phase control. We purpose to implement and simulate the model in Simulink.
