As a result of the renewed attention to alternative energy production, this research will evaluate and analyse the potentials of wave energy, especially before the Belgian Coast. Both the hydraulic-hydrodynamic aspects of the convertor and the energy conversion to applicable electrical power are studied. Finally, a prototype, together with its attainability shall be worked out.
