Abstract: Various global studies have shown that ocean waves energy have large potential in renewable energy sector. Their role within renewable energy gets high priority in the future by the government of United Kingdom. The principle concept of wave energy is when wave energy is converted into potential energy by the wave energy devices to generate electricity. An understanding of the dynamic response of the devices and mooring lines is important for this paper. This paper deals with the analysis of the various effects that influence the different design of wave energy converter devices. The mooring design idea is also analyzed to show which mooring layout is suitable to fulfill the requirement. The design of mooring configuration also influence how wave power is extracted and how such system are operated and maintained. The effects investigated in this paper are regular and irregular waves, motion @ six degrees of freedom, maximum and minimum mooring tension, different waves direction, wave current, energy and power take off.
