A Natural-Artificial Power-Industrial System Based on Wave Energy Conversion 1999-01-2556

Lately, because of limitedness of organic power resources and requirements to ecological purity, the solution of a problem of power production growth is more often connected with the use of renewable power resources. Among renewable power sources the ocean waves is a very promising power carrier since they manifest the highest specific power. The functioning of a Natural-Artificial Power-Industrial system is examined. The main elements of it are: - A nature's heat machine, creating the ocean waves; - A Float Wave Electric Power Station, converting wave's energy into electricity; - An electrolyzer, utilizing electricity and sea water, as a means of hydrogen production; - Energy storage and energy consumers.
The system is treated from energetic, ecological and economic viewpoints.
