Technology Description The WaveMaster device consists of two pressure chambers connected via a number of turbines The device is located under the waters surface so that it is covered at all times The upper surface of each chamber is an active surface covered with one way valves that control the flow of water through the device The valves on the high pressure chamber allow water to flow into the chamber provided the external pressure is higher than the internal pressure in the chamber This situation typically occurs under wave crests If the external pressure is less than the internal pressure the valves remain closed and water does not flow in Similarly the valves on the low pressure chamber will only allow water to flow out of the chamber if the internal pressure is higher than the external pressure This situation typically occurs under wave troughs If the internal pressure is less than the external pressure the valves remain closed and there is no flow of water
