Electricity is the most powerful energy source in the world. The most commercial and widely used power plant is coal-fired, manifesting a continuation of the traditional steambased method whereby steam is used in turbines to generate electricity. However, the carbon emission issue is a major concern now due to global warming. Renewable energy sources such as hydro, wind and wave are becoming popular to reduce carbon emissions,but they demand several novel methods, techniques and technologies compared to coalbased power. Issues about power quality of renewable sources need research and continuous study to improve renewable energy technologies.The aim of this project is to investigate the impact of wave power plant on its local distribution system. The power farm was designed to connect to the local distribution system going to be investigated and analysis to make sure the energy supply to customer is clean and quality. The research work comprises the process of building up the modelling circuit for wave generator, simulates the generator farm, identifying,measuring and analysing the impacts of wave generator to local distribution systems such as voltage flicker and voltage fluctuates. Power factor in effect also is observed to see the effect on voltage fluctuate. The computer aid design (CAD) tools are used to simulate are the MA TLAB. At the end of the project, a summary of identifying various voltage fluctuates data sources is presented in terms of voltage flicker. A suggestion of the analysis impact of wave power generation on its local distribution is also presented for the development of wave generator farms.
