Device for converting mechanical energy from sea waves into electric energy including at least a float and two rigid rods. The rods are preferably anchored to the seabed at one end, and to the float at another end. There are also two ballasts that effect their weight towards the sea bed to keep the free ends of the rods constantly in traction and free to rotate around their hinges. The float oscillates up and down along a vertical line due to waves. There are at least two cables that connect the free ends of the rods to a transmission shaft of a generator positioned along the vertical line so that the vertical, horizontal, or rotary oscillatory motion of the float caused by the waves generates an oscillatory motion of the rods which are pivoted on their respective hinges, and thus transfers rotary motion to the transmission shaft of the generator.

Abstract

Device for converting mechanical energy from sea waves into electric energy including at least a float and two rigid rods. The rods are preferably anchored to the seabed at one end, and to the float at another end. There are also two ballasts that effect their weight towards the sea bed to keep the free ends of the rods constantly in traction and free to rotate around their hinges. The float oscillates up and down along a vertical line due to waves. There are at least two cables that connect the free ends of the rods to a transmission shaft of a generator positioned along the vertical line so that the vertical, horizontal, or rotary oscillatory motion of the float caused by the waves generates an oscillatory motion of the rods which are pivoted on their respective hinges, and thus transfers rotary motion to the transmission shaft of the generator.
