This paper proposed a pulley-buoy accelerated wave energy linear power generation system, and the feasibility and effectiveness of this system were verified through experimental research. Compared with the traditional wave energy power generation system with three-stage energy conversion links, the pulley-buoy accelerated wave energy linear power generation system omits the intermediate energy transfer and conversion link, and realizes the direct gain of electric energy from the buoy movement caused by wave, and by introducing the pulley combination, the movement speed of the buoy is enlarged, the power generation of the linear power generation system is increased, thereby the wave energy conversion efficiency of the system is improved. Under laboratory conditions, a small-size pulley-buoy accelerated wave energy linear power generation system prototype and a swing-plate wave-making system were built to explore the effects of different buoy sizes on the power generation performance of the system. The test results show that within the research scope of this paper, increasing the size of the buoy can effectively increase the wave energy conversion efficiency of the system and improve the power generation performance of the accelerated wave energy power generation system. The research results in this paper provide useful experience for the practical application and efficient operation of wave energy power generation systems.
