Ocean wave energy, ocean tidal energy as well as ocean thermal energy is an immense source of renewable energy. Oceans water cover approximately 71 % of volume of earth. Waves carry enormous quantity of energy among them. Tides generated as a result of gravitation between earth and moon and partially between earth and sun facilitate in generating high heads of water to generate pollution free energy. As a result of high value or cost of generation and lack of enough research, this sustainable supply of energy has not been totally exploited yet. Though the technology employed in harnessing marine energy is taken into account as a threat to aquatic life, however appropriate ways and focused research in this field that will result in benefit of this ample supply of renewable energy. Wave energy is obvious source for renewable energy harvesting in oceans.

In this paper a concept of a new OWEC is proposed and developed numerical model to describe the proposed OWEC. The performance of the proposed system was determined by several parameters: wave conditions, floating body geometry and power storage system including generator and electrical load. In this study, we found optimal design of HACPSS from quantitative simulation by using the numerical model. In addition, we constructed a conceptual prototype of for proposed work based on mathematical model. However, the output fluctuation was shown in every case. The proposed wave-to-wire model is very useful to address several design and analysis issues without modifying the actual system, for instance, to implement a fault detection strategy. The acceptable limits of power oscillation depend on whether the converter is connected to an islanded system, or a weak or strong power grid. In this research work, proposed Ocean Wave Energy Converter (OWEC) based power grid system, performance of grid system is analyzed under no fault condition, fault condition and fault removal condition using UPFC device.
