First and second switches 132 are connected to the output of the differentiator 130. The first switch 132 is responsive to the output of the differentiator 130 when the rate of change of the output current from the generator 94 is decreasing or is less than zero and is operative to connect the generator of the motor/generator unit 50 to the gyroscope 46 to extract kinetic energy therefrom so as to decrease the angular velocity of the gyroscope 46. This has the effect of reducing the time rate of change of the current to zero which is an indication of maximum power generation. The unidirectional couplings 170 and 172 function to transmit opposite directions of rotation of the second frame 158 to the respective first and second electrical generators 166 and 168, in a manner identical to that described above with respect to FIG.

3. The battery 102 is suitably connected by leads or wires, not shown, to the motor/generator 50 for supplying power to the motor/generator 50 for driving the gyroscope 46 and for extracting kinetic energy therefrom in the form of electrical current. A gyroscope is mounted to the first frame for rotation about a third axis perpendicular to the front and second axes. If the buoyant body 14 rocks about the pivotal axis of the first frame 36, the second frame 56 is urged by reaction forces at pillow blocks 66 and 68 to oscillate relative to the first frame 36. The generator moments drag the first frame 36 in its path, causing the gyroscope 46 to precess about the pivotal axis of the first frame, the result of which is a rotational motion of the second frame 56 about its pivotal axis and thereby compressing and extending springs 108. This is called mode two.
1 and 2 in particular, there is illustrated a mechanism 10 for generating power from wave motion on a body of water 12, such as an ocean. Further, all of the operative components of the mechanism of the present invention, both mechanical and electrical, are hermetically sealed within a domed housing mounted on the buoyant body so as to be protected from corrosive effects of sea water.
For one, all of the operative components of the present mechanism for generating power from wave motion, both mechanism and electrical, are completely sealed and isolated from the harsh and corrosive effects of the sea water. 3, the generating means of the preferred embodiment of the present invention is in the form of first and second generators 92 and 94. A suitably formed winding is disposed around the outermost end of the shaft 82 connected to the driven member 80 to form a rotor or armature. The second switch 132 is responsive to the time rate of change of the generator output current when such rate of change is increasing or is greater than zero.
