Abstract

In order to make better use of wave energy, based on floating wave energy device, a new asynchronous wave energy generation system is presented in this paper. Being different with traditional floating wave power gen-eration system in which the motion of hydraulic cylinder piston rod on both sides of the system is synchro-nous operation, the new system is designed for the bilateral asymmetric cylinder stroke operation conditions, expecting the new system can be used in more complex occasions. In this article, the power captured in three different conditions is analyzed through the experimental method, in which the average motion cycle of 4 seconds is selected to investigate the influence of wave period on the power. The performance of the asyn-chronous condition is very well under the same period. Comparing with the performance in synchronization conditions, the performance of asynchronous system is not too bad, and the power has a higher peak.
