چکیده:

Oceans are of important sources of energy. Each country, in case of having access to vast water resources and utilizing them efficiently, could have part of its demanded energy gainedfrom seas. In this study, the average extractable power from waves in Iranian shores are estimated to be 20 m KW of which 6 m KW is extractable from northern and 14 m KW from southern coasts and a comparison is done between extractable energy amount of Iran and that of Turkey. Also theconformity of estimated amounts with the estimation of energy levels distribution around theworld has been taken as a proof for the validity of results. In this article, wave energy density is calculated for 10 coastal areas of Iran and the bestlocations for installation of convertors are proposed. In addition, through calculation andcomparison of density for both wave and wind energy in these areas, the advantage of using wave energy over other sources, like wind, is investigated. Finally, to utilize these big energy sources, we propose convertors for different areas considering wave specification, water depth and other important parameters in each location
