Renewable energy is the production of energy from resources that are inexhaustible on a human scale. The main principle is the use of energy from processes occurring in the environment.

Alternative energy is a set of promising methods for obtaining, transferring and using energy, which are less common than traditional ones, but are of interest due to the low risk of causing harm to the environment.

Currently, the generation of electricity through the use of wave energy is not common and is experimental. Nevertheless, it is one of the most promising renewable energy sources, and also has the potential to become one of the main components of the world's energy production.

In this work, a wave generator based on a hydraulic system has been designed. Various versions of this installation are considered, and the existing designs of such devices are analyzed. Based on this, the most efficient design was selected.

The following stages have been completed: the design of the wave generator, the design of the hydraulic system, the calculation of the system elements according the technical requirements, the selection of standard components and units, the calculation of efficiency and mathematical modeling of the system operation.
