Brooke J. Wave Energy Conversion
Elsevier Science Ltd., 2003. 205 p. ISBN:0080442129
Wave energy, together with other renewable energy resources is expected to provide a small but significant proportion of future energy requirements without adding to pollution and global warming
This practical and concise reference considers alternative application methods, explains the concepts behind wave energy conversion and investigates wave power activities across the globe
Explores the potential of using the power generated by waves as a natural energy resource
Considers the power transfer systems needed to do this, and looks at the environmental impacts
