FIG. 2 is a sectional view taken at 2–2 of FIG. FIG. 3 is another sectional view of the pump system taken at 3–3 of FIG. The turbine, of course, may be positioned at a remote location with the outlet 28 being a conduit connected from the remote position on the ocean floor, on land, or on a platform. A similar check valve system may be employed with the piston 16 as shown in FIGS. The void area 36 in the tank 16 creates an ideal hydrostatic head which can be used for generating power. Also, the container for creating the void can be positioned any distance below the surface, such as by anchors to the bottom and floating or actually positioned on the bottom and anchored.

In this figure a large buoy 12 floating on the ocean 10 is attached to a pump 14 for removing water from a tank or a container 16 to create a void. 3, allowing water to flow through the piston to the ocean side of the pump 14. When the ocean wave motion moves the buoy upward, pulling the piston 16 upward in the cylinder 18, the vanes 34 will close, thus pumping water out of the piston into the ocean, creating a void in the container 16. The continuous action of the ocean waves on the buoy 12 causes the piston to rise and fall by means of its connection to the buoy through cable 22. Thus, the container 16 is constantly being pumped out by the action of the ocean waves.
The pump 14 is comprised of a piston 15 and a hollow cylinder 18 joined to the enclosure 16 by a conduit 20. The piston 16 is joined to the buoy 12 by a cable 22. The pump 14 is shown relatively large in comparison to the container 16 merely for purposes of clarity and the particular size of each will have to be determined depending upon the depth and use of the system. Still another object of the present invention is to provide a power generating system which can create a hydrostatic head by pumping water out of a container anchored beneath the ocean. Quitar dolor de espalda alta . If desired, auxiliary pumps could be provided on the platform to pump water out of the tank when the sea was too calm to create a void sufficient to generate power.
Thus, there has been disclosed a system for utilizing wave motion to generate power by creating a void beneath the surface of the water which in turn produces a hydrostatic head. A turbine 24 is positioned to make use of the hydrostatic head created in the container 16 by the action of the pump 14. Water is allowed to flow through an inlet pipe 26 having a suitable filter 30, through the turbine 24 into the tank 16 through an outlet 28. The force of the water flowing through the turbine 24 can be used to drive a power generator (not shown) in a manner known in the art.
One such system uses wave motion to pump water into a tank mounted on a platform well above sea level, which can be used to generate power. Obviously, many modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in light of the above teachings. When cured, the soil and mud could be dredged from underneath the concrete. An enclosure or container could also be produced by pouring concrete on the ocean floor with footings dredged and filled. Water is drawn through the filter 72, the conduit 70, through the turbine 38, and back to the container 58, through the conduit 68. The turbine 38 can be continuously operated as long as there is a void, and thus a hydrostatic head is maintained in the container or enclosure 58. On the infrequent occasions the sea or ocean may be very calm and possibly insufficient to maintain a void, auxiliary pumps automatically are actuated by the water 74 rising in the tank 58 and can be used to maintain a minimum hydrostatic head.
1, there can be one tank and many pumps allowing a number of smaller buoys to be used or a number of tanks which may be connected to a turbine 24 through a series of conduits, if desired. The buoys 46 and 48 are connected to pumps 50 and 52 respectively by means of cables 54. The pumps 50 and 52 are connected by a condit 56 to an enclosure 58 for creating the hydrostatic head as before. Dolor de espalda lactancia . The water is released from the tank to drive a turbine which in turn generates power.

The power generator would be situated on a platform and water would be drawn through the drive system by a siphon connected to the drive system and a conduit connected from the drive system to the void in the tank. This would probably require a sizeable number of ocean motion pumps working to keep the container empty and void of water. Water is pumped out of the container by a pump attached to a buoy floating on the surface of the water, which moves up and down in response to wave motion.
Yet another object of the present invention is to provide a power generating system in which a hydrostatic head is produced by creating a void beneath the ocean. The novel principle of the invention of creating and maintaining a void under a body of water can be used to furnish power to any size of device used by our present or future technology.

Because the power of nature, when used in the raw state, is very inconsistent and unpredictable, auxiliary conventional powered pumps to keep the void dry during periods of surface calm can be provided. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The purpose of the present invention is to provide a simple and easy-to-construct system for generating power by utilizing wave motions. 1 illustrates the principle of using wave motion to generate power.
