Abstract
 
Renewable energies such as wave energy, despite rapid technological progress and potentials
in Iranian waters, are yet require careful studies. Recent developments of marine energy in
the world can manifest itself for energy demands in Iran. In this paper, the procedure for
design of Well’s turbine and Oscillating Water Column (OWC) containers are explained.
Experimental wave measurements from Anzali port is used to design the system of OWC.
Optimum sizes of the OWC container and Well’s turbine are derived for using the maximum
accessible wave energy in Anzali port.
Key Words: Wave Energy, Oscillating Column of Water System, Wells Turbine, Anzali Port.
