Title: Wave Pendulum
The Wave Pendulum is a power plant that exploits the energy of ocean waves and converts it to electrical energy. The system consists of two towers and four connecting pipes between the tops and bottoms of the two towers. The apparatus includes a weight and floats for stabilization. The wave motion moves the fluid from inside one tower to the other, which drives a turbine that converts this mechanical energy into electrical energy. The generator is mounted directly on the turbine.
