The aim of the project is to generate electrical energy from wave energy one of the most important sources of renewable energy using Oscillating Water Column (OWC) housing. The project consists of Wave tank, Wells turbine housing and hot wire anemometer sensor.
By operating wave generator at different frequencies causes the water in the OWC moves upwards and downwards at different speeds causes the compression and expansion of the air in the housing to rotate Wells turbine. As the air speed increases the turbine rotates faster generating more electrical power.
