AbstractIn the present study a cylindrical wave energy system with horizontal rotation for shallow water is newly suggested. The horizontal cylinder is floated at the free surface, and rotated by the water particle velocity and the current flow. The electric generator is located in the horizontal cylinder. Thus, the generator is not affected by sea waters. The swing plate is submerged at the bottom of horizontal cylinder and has the pendulum motion according to incident wave motion. In real ocean environments, the propagation direction of wave may change from day to day. Therefore, the yaw system is adopted in this design. To evaluate the characteristic of cylindrical wave energy system the experimental test is carried out for the various parameters.
