Abstract

Wave is one of the renewable energy sources that can be harnessed to produce electricity. Fossil fuel is the main contributor to the electric power generation and this source eventually will extinct. This project research is more to solve this problem. Malaysia is surrounded by waters which make this fact as an advantage if there are electric power generations based on wave energy produced in Malaysia. But, the wave power generated in Malaysian waters is not powerful as wave power available in countries which used this type of renewable source to generate electric power commercially. In this project, new technique in taking advantages of wave energy was done to optimized use of wave power. The sketch of the design has been drawn more thorough using SOLIDWORK software. Materials to build this device were chosen based on the study of material to make sure it is reliable. Arc welding was used to join parts during the fabrication process. At the end of this project, wave electric generator was tested by using a voltmeter to measure the electric power produced from the device.
