WAVE POWER

INTRODUCTION
Wave power refers to the energy of ocean surface waves and the capture of that energy to do useful work

Formation of waves
Ø The combination of forces due to gravity, sea surface tension and wind intensity are the main factors of origin of sea waves. Ø Ø Ø wave height is depend on wind speed, time duration of the wind blowing and water depth. Ø 04/11/10

Power From Ocean Waves
ØWave energy is strongest on the west coasts and increases toward the poles. ØAt approx. 30 kW/mcl in the Northwest (yearly avg.), a single meter (3.3 feet) of wave has the raw energy to power about 23 homes.

Ceto units operates in deep water away from breaking waves. Ceto does not need massive steel and concrete stuctures. Ceto is the only wave energy technology that produces fresh water directly form sea water. Ceto contains no oils, lubricants or off shore electrical components. Ceto units act like artificial reefs to attract marine life.

Advantages:

It is a renewable energy source and inexhaustible. The energy is free , no fuel is needed It is pollution free. Can produce a great deal of energy. The wave propagation direction is from 10 to 100 times larger than wind energy. Ø Not expensive to operate & maintain Ø Ø Ø Ø Ø

Disadvantages:

Ø Depends on the waves – sometimes we will get lots of energy, sometimes low amount of energy. Ø These are located away from the load centers, the energy has to be transported to a longer distance. Ø This will be effected by large storms and tsunami.
