Wave Generation and Absorption
The cylindrical wave energy system with horizontal rotation for shallow water is composed of the horizontal cylinder and the swing plate. The horizontal cylinder is floated at the free surface, and rotated by the water particle velocity and the current flow. The electric generator is located in the horizontal cylinder. The swing plate is submerged at the bottom of horizontal cylinder and has the pendulum motion according to incident wave motion. To evaluate the characteristic of cylindrical wave energy system the experimental test is carried out for the various parameters.
