The performance characteristics of a 2kw LMMHD generator with U47 as working liquid for wave energy conversion were investigated experimentally in this paper. The results show that in a simulated wave condition with a period of 2s and a stroke of 300mm, the LMMHD generator experiment device generates AC electricity and the output voltage, current and power change sinusoidally with time; the maximum output power of 1.1kW was measured with a load resistance of 45µΩ: and magnetic flux density of 0.9T. The experiment results of the open-circuit satisfy well with those from calculations.
