Scientists from the Academy of Sciences of China's Energy Conversion Institute in Guangzhou have been able to stably generate electrical energy from the strength of the waves during the sea trial of their new system.
The experimental results of the system have proved satisfactory in terms of stability and performance in the case of small waves. The waves are a source of energy little exploited because very unstable. Statistics have shown that the maximum energy that can be generated is 7 at 10 times higher than the average energy obtained in ten minutes. The test of the new system produced 6 kW and showed good stability.
The Institute plans to build the first wave power station. It will produce electricity for the consumption of a village and also for the desalination of water.
