The popularity of energy generation from renewable resources had increased in the last decades. Different sources, such as solar energy, wind energy, biogas energy, etc, are the most popular energy sources. But ocean wave energy as an alternative to conventional energy sources is also gaining much attention from researchers. As earth contains approx. 71% of water all around and the ocean contains approx. 97% of the total water on earth. So, this can be the most effective medium to utilize such a huge resource to fulfill the energy requirement of people worldwide. Many factors can determine the amount of power generated, such as wave height, time period, frequency, etc. These factors influence the amount of utilizable wave energy potential. In this chapter, a model is presented that can evaluate the power generated from ocean waves. Further, it can maximize the overall power generated by the application of a fuzzy optimizer.
