The inventive receiver wave energy installation is made in the form of a rotor with S-shaped blades arranged in two tiers between the three disks, the blades of each row are arranged at an angle of 90oin relation to each other, the rotor is located between the piles on which the platform is installed with the generator, and the axis of the rotor and the axis of the generator have the gear. 2 C.p. f-crystals, 3 ill.

The invention relates to a tidal-wave devices for converting sea wave energy into mechanical or electrical energy.

Known tidal wave setting in which the shock waves into the funnel the water rises through the pipes in the upper reservoir from which water is supplied to the turbines [1]

The disadvantage of the above setup is that it only uses the impact energy of the translational wave, return the same wave, and currents generated by waves, remain unused.

Known wave power plant, etc the blind grooves [2]

This setting also does not use the energy of recoil of the waves.

The objective of the invention is to increase the efficiency of energy conversion through the use of the energy of the return waves.

This technical result is achieved by the fact that the receiver energy tidal waves is a rotor with a horizontal axis with three disks, between which are S-shaped blades in two tiers, with the blades of each row are at an angle of 90oin relation to each other. The rotor using the axis is mounted between the supporting piles.

In Fig. 1 shows a view of the facility from the front, Fig. 2 is a view of the rotor from the top without the top of the disk, Fig. 3 the location of the blades without disks.

The unit has an axis 1, three disk 2, six S-shaped blades 3 on each tier, gear 4, the transmission circuit 5, the supporting piles 6, the platform 7, the generator 8.

The installation operates as follows.

Forward and return waves hitting the blades 3, fully or partially cover the rotor and bring it into rotation, which is transmitted through the gear 4 and the transmission circuit 5 to the generator 8. But not only the shock wave energy is converted by the rotor in the rotation who is always in the same direction regardless of the direction of waves and currents.

Due to the irregularity of the surf and power oscillations during operation of the rotor, received at the installation or group of installations, electricity is advisable to use as "prefabricated" to actuate pumps lifting water in a reservoir on a hill. The reservoir may be located at a considerable distance from the installation, only it would be a convenient place for him. This pond and feed sufficient power hydroelectric power station, which supplies as required by the electricity consumer.

Device for converting the energy of sea waves and waves into electrical energy, containing the power receiver, made in the form of a rotor, wherein the rotor is constructed with S-shaped blades arranged in two tiers between the three disks, the blades of each row are arranged at an angle of 90oin relation one to another.

2. Installation under item 1, characterized in that the rotor is located between the piles on which the platform is installed with the generator.
