Ocean Wave Energy: Current Status and Future Prespectives - Green Energy and Technology (Hardback)Joao Cruz (author)
- We can order this
The authors of this timely reference provide an updated and global view on ocean wave energy conversion - and they do so for wave energy developers as well as for students and professors. The book is orientated to the practical solutions that this new industry has found so far and the problems that any device needs to face. It describes the actual principles applied to machines that convert wave power to electricity and examines state-of-the-art modern systems.

From the reviews:
"This work, the first volume in the `Green Energy and Technology' series, edited by Cruz (industry), gives the reader a snapshot of the latest attempts. ... The book includes many illustrations, and references follow each chapter. This is a valuable, well-researched look at a fascinating technology. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (J. C. Comer, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), August, 2008)
"This book provides an important overview of the past, present and future of wave energy technology at a key moment in its development into a viable and economically important industry. ... It will provide researchers with a comprehensive understanding of the key issues in wave energy exploitation ... but will be of particular interest to researchers and academics with a new interest in the field. ... I would readily recommend this text to colleagues and students ... ." (Edward H. Owens, International Journal of Ambient Energy, Vol. 29 (4), October, 2008)
