In certain embodiments, the materials having magnetic permeability are materials which have a high permeability. Without limitation, materials which have a high permeability comprise iron, nickel, chromium, and like materials. The springs generally have opposite first and second ends, and are engaged at one end with the housing and at the other end with the electromagnetically active mass. According to other embodiments, the wave energy generator comprises a float and an electrical energy generator engaged with the float comprising a housing having a longitudinal axis, electrically conductive material engaged about at least of portion of the exterior surface of said housing and extending along at least a portion of said longitudinal axis, an electromagnetically active mass positioned within said housing, said mass reciprocally movable along at least a portion of said longitudinal axis, a first spring having first and second ends, wherein one end is engaged with said housing and one end in engaged with said electromagnetically active mass, a second spring having first and second ends, wherein one end is engaged with said housing and one end is engaged with said electromagnetically active mass, and a means to mitigate motion retardation of said electromagnetically active mass within the housing.
Without limitation, the electrically conductive material may be provided in the form of an induction coil. The linear electric energy generator may be sealed in a water-tight housing. According to other illustrative embodiments, the wave energy generator may harvest mechanical energy from the motion of waves, convert the harvested mechanical energy into usable electrical energy and transfer the energy to an electrical distribution system, such as an electrical grid or electrical station.

Accordingly, it is desirable to provide an improved device to convert the kinetic energy manifested in waves into electrical energy in order to maximize the amount of electrical energy that may be generated for use. In certain embodiments, the coefficient of friction is selected to be very low in order to minimize the magnitude of friction forces. An additional housing may be positioned about the induction coil in order to provide a sealed, water-tight electrical energy generator.

In certain embodiments, one natural frequency of the device may be predetermined to correspond to the steady state harmonic motion of the wave motion. Depending upon the embodiment and desired operational characteristics, it may be desirable to have one or more of the natural frequencies of the device similar to one or more of the operational frequencies of the source of the excitation kinetic energy; or dissimilar to one or more of the expected operational frequencies of the source of the excitation kinetic energy by some predetermined amount. The level of damping in the device can be predetermined. Because the electrical energy generator includes an electromagnetically active mass, a spring, and an induction coil, when set into motion, the device can behave as a damped vibrating system and will vibrate until it dissipates the exciting energy. It should be noted that the wave energy generator can supply usable electrical energy to an electrical distribution system, such as an electrical grid or electrical station, that is located either onshore or offshore.
