Description of operation

The converter is composed of two main parts: 
A- The float, moving up/down following the vertical movements of the sea;
B- The mechanism, which converts the vertical movements to horizontal and/or to rotational depending on the type of electrical generator used.

An important safety innovation is that the float is moving restricted in a cage made by four (4) vertical metal rails, fixed in each side of recess (see figures) and acts as the piston of an internal combustion engine, inside its cylinder. This device from float to generator, compose one unit. Many units placed side by side each one next to the other, form a GROUP of UNITS, which operates as a huge multi-cylinder diesel engine, producing electricity of many M/Wats, using sea water instead of the flammable explosive, costly, and polluting fossil fuels.

GROUPS can secure mass production of electricity of many M/Wats at lower construction costs. Thus, a shoreline of 100 m length and 5 m width (0.125 acres) is enough for a GROUP of 40 converters with floats of 2 m diameter and raising forces more than 8.000 pounds each.

Consequently, although the float is moving to two directions (upwards and downwards), the shaft of the generator rotates always to one direction.
All units except floats are housed and firmly protected (see figure).
