It is not wrong to say that wave energy will be one of the most important energy sources to be used in the future, when it is thought that three-quarters of the world is covered by water. The initial investment and maintenance costs are the only expenses, beside not any price have to be paid for the primary energy. The wave energy does not leave any contaminants, as well as it is cheap, clean, environmentally, friendly and a great energy sources. In this study, wave energy converter system which has a four poles linear generator is discussed. The Linear generator model has been designed and created as a portable model. The results obtained from this model were examined.
