Oscillating Water Columns (OWCs) are devices that generate energy from the rise and fall of water caused by waves and tides in the ocean without causing any damage to the environment.
As water rises and falls inside a chamber, air is displaced by the water in chamber and pushed in and out through wells turbine. The turbine converts the airflow into energy. Well's turbine always rotates in same direction irrespective of the direction of airflow, making energy to be continuously generated.
The proposed design is about creating a oscillating water column in a laboratory itself making it a clean source of energy.
