Efficiency Analysis of Waves Energy Conversion System with Floating Cylinders

Starting from the particularities of offshore surface waves, the paper proposes the analysis of a new system with floating bodies articulated, connect between them with levers, designed for potential waves energy and for its conversion. From the analysis of technical stage was chosen the cylindrical shape for which the waves energy absorption efficiency is higher than in a vertical plate case. It was established that the efficiency of capture system with floating cylinders in function by their diameters and by the ratio of lever length connection at wavelength of wave.
