This paper presents a brief introduction to wave energy converters (WEC), focusing on linear generators and its design issues proposing novel solutions. The development of new concepts in the application of magnetic bearings for linear generators is discussed. In particular passive and active magnetic bearing concepts for tubular and planar machines are presented. Electromagnets are combined with permanent magnet and Halbach arrays, and a simple design study shows the benefits of using a hybrid electromagnet-Halbach array.
