ABSTRACT

Seventy one percent of the earth’s surface is covered by ocean. There is approximately 10TW of wave energy in the entire ocean, and an enormous part of which is just gone to a waste. With the world’s problem today on global warming due to burning of hydrocarbon fuels to produce useful forms of energy, here presents an alternative way towards producing the energy we need for our consumption. This study aims to design, fabricate, and evaluate the experimental ocean wave driven air pump system that would practically work with ocean wave height below and equal to the stroke capacity of the air pump, and be able to produce a definite rotational speed of the shaft. A three-blade Savonius turbine enclosed in a housing assembly is fabricated to operate with a concentrated flow of compressed air from the air pump. The air flow is produced by the reciprocating action of the piston of an air pump and is driven by the forces from ocean waves. Data on ocean wave characteristics with cycle speed of two(2) seconds and heights 100mm, 200mm, 300mm and 400mm are tested experimentally. Results obtained from the system showed potential energy production of 0.013W at a wind speed of thirteen(13) meters per second.. At a full stroke of the piston, the highest attainable rotational speed is 112 rpm which is higher than 100 rpm as the minimum objective in this study. Concern like the small quantity generation of torque and power output could be resolved by further development of the system.
