1 and 2, where the wave action electricity generation system, generally designated 100, is shown floating turbulently in a body of water having waves W. The system 100 is shown anchored by anchor means 200 to the floor of a body of water and allowed to freely float, as indicated by arrows A1, and rotate, as indicated by arrows A2, in a circular manner on the surface of the body of water and whose travel is limited and defined by the length of cable means 203 having an end 202 connected to anchor means 200 at an anchor end 201. Shown also in FIG. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention provides an improved wave action electricity generation system designed to satisfy the aforementioned objectives. 3 and 4, system 100 is shown comprised of a platform member 101 in the shape of a cylindrical tank having a submerged portion 102 adapted for attachment to swivel means 206. Swivel means 206 being adapted for attachment to cable end 204 at attachment means 205. The platform member 101 is shown adapted with a lower compartment 103 having a floor 103a for housing and supporting electrical energy generating means 500 and part of a counter balance member 400 and an upper compartment 104 having a floor 104a that houses and supports the kinetic energy transfer means 300 and part of the counter balance member 400. Kinetic energy transfer means 300 is comprised of a cylinder 301 adapted with ends 301a and 301b. Within cylinder 301 are located a first heavily weighted piston means 311 having a weight W1, a second and third piston means 306 and 307 and a fluid means 310 sealed in opposed cylinder portions defined to be between respective opposed ends of first piston means 311 and second and third piston means 306 and 307. Fluid means 310 is compressively sealed in the cylinder portions by adapting the piston means 306, 307 and 311 with o-rings 306a, 307a and 311a that maintain expansion forces against the walls of cylinder 301 throughout a compression and power transfer stroke.
In operation, wave motion from waves W causes a lifting on submerged platform portion 102, as indicated by arrow A3, or rotation of swivel means 206, as indicated by arrow A4, that causes piston 311 to oscillate and create compression strokes, as shown by arrow A5, within cylinder 301 towards second and third piston means 306 or 307 to compress fluid 310 to a state as indicated by 310a. The compression strokes cause pistons 306, 307 to plunge rods 302, 303 through ends 301a, 301b as power transfer strokes, as indicated by arrow A6, A7, and A8, compressing spring members 04, 305 and urging mechanical linkage arm 312 towards transmission gear means 503. The stroke travel L2 of rods 302, 303 and the compression distances L1 of spring members 304, 305 are variables that depend on the size of the cylinder 301 and the size and mass of the first piston means 311. For example, system 100 may have a diameter D of 40 feet and a height H of 20 feet, a first piston means having a length L of 25 feet and a diameter D1 of 5 feet that weighs 50,000 pounds.

To limit the travel of rods 302, 303, identical counter balance means 400, having arm 401, a weight means 402 of weight W2 and damper 403 are mounted to floor 104a and side walls at 103b and 103c. Dolor en la parte anterior de la rodilla . As rods 302, 303 reach the zenith in their stroke, counter balance arms 401 come into contact with rod arm ends 307, 308 to have the power transfer stroke dampened by the resistance of weight means 402 and damper 403 in preparation for an alternate power stroke. It is also a primary object of the present invention to provide a floating platform that is adapted with a cylinder and piston arrangement that will respond to every oscillation of the water wave motion to produce electricity without the need for pumping stations to relay the transfer of energy.
FIG. 4 is an enlarged partial side view of the kinetic energy transfer means and the electrical energy transfer means illustrating a compression and power transfer stroke being damped by a counter balance means. FIG. 2 is a sectional side view of the electrical energy generating system of the present invention illustrating an anchor scheme and power distribution to a remote power receiving station on shore. Therefore, there is felt to be a need for a system that can freely float in a body of water and synchronously capture the available energy of the waves. U.S. Pat. No. 4,627,240 to Holmes teaches a device to convert the motions of waves in a body of water to other forms of energy. Although the prior art has taught the use of cylinders and pistons to capture the energy that is so visably available in the waves of large bodies of water, there has been a tendency to make the structures that carry the cylinder and pistons as rigid structures that are firmly anchored to the floor of the body of water.

Of interest is the teaching of using a stationery cylinder adapted to receive a piston that forces water vertically up a pipe and then controlling the downward flow, such as by directing the water for turning a turbine of an electric generator. The system includes a piston-cylinder means wherein a slidable piston forces a fluid to flow onto a water wheel generator that produces electricity.

Yet more particularly, the invention relates to wave motion electricity generations systems that utilize weighted pistons within a cylinder as the principle element in the energy conversion process. The present invention provides a floating platform means that supports the system on the surface of a body of water, an anchor means for controlling movement of the platform means to a desired water surface area of said body of water, a kinetic energy generation means for converting wave motion energy into mechanical energy and an electric energy generation means for converting the mechanical power transfer strokes into electrical energy. The heavily weighted piston means is slidably responsive to the wave motion energy of the body of water and is used to compress the fluid to produce respective compression power strokes in the opposed chamber portions.
The kinetic energy generation means includes a cylinder containing a fluid, such as a lubricant, in each of the opposed chamber portions of the cylinder means and a first heavily weighted primary piston that is slidably and freely disposed within the body of the cylinder between the opposed cylinder chamber portions. The energy in the compression stroke is received by a second and third piston means located respectively in the chamber portions that further produce respective power transfer strokes through the ends of the cylinder.
