The Brandl Generator

The Brandl Generator can operate anywhere on the earth's oceans.

Skizze des Brandlmotor Wellenkraftwerks

This drawing shows the basic idea:
A disc, ten metres in diameter and one metre thick, rises and falls with the waves. A pendulum mass hanging beneath a spring moves anticyclical up and down. This mass drives the direct-connected magnets that are inducing an electrical current while moving through the inductance coils.

(1) magnets
(2) inductance coils
(3) floating disc
(4) spring
(5) pendulum mass

This computer simulation shows how a Brandl Generator behaves at sea.

This picture should give an impression of the huge dimensions of the seas and oceans. The potential of low cost power is almost unlimited!
