Wave Energy Converters are utilized to generate electrical energy from ocean wave energy. But due to the low efficiency and high cost such type of power plants are utilized for energy production in very few areas of the World. The conversion potential depend on wave height,period and depth of ocean.Higher the parameters higher will be the potential.However due to the absence of efficient and inexpensive converters,wide scale implementation of wave energy based power plants are not observed.This present idea attempt to optimize the efficiency of Attenuator type Wave Energy Converters and minimize the cost to produce an optimal configuration which will have high conversion efficiency within minimum cost.In this aspect the different nature based optimization techniques like Particle Swarm Optimization,Generic Algorithm or Polynomial Neural Networks etc. can be applied simultaneously to identify the best result from the techniques.Download the link below for the complete idea :
