Successful wave power devices must meet several serious technical challenges.  In his paper, ‘On the difficulty of inventing an economical sea wave energy converter: a personal view.’, M.J. French, Professor Emeritus at Lancaster University, wrote, “Three distinguishing features of wave power are that the [wave] velocities are small and the forces very large, that those forces and velocities are alternating, and that the frequency at which they alternate is irregular enough to be very unhelpful.”  A successful wave power device must meet these challenges as well as the challenge of survival in a corrosive and periodically violent environment.
