Abstract

As supplies of fossil fuels are becoming depleted, it is necessary to look for alternative sources of energy. The ocean is a vast, largely untapped source of renewable energy. This project attempts to design a device which can cheaply and reliably convert the energy from ocean waves into usable electrical energy. Computer simulations and oceanographic knowledge are utilized to develop a working design for an entirely submerged wave energy conversion device.
