Ocean Power Technology Project is an innovative technology for generating green energy at low cost, with minimum pollution and producing electrical power from enormous quantities of dependable renewable energy which is available throughout the world in abundance in the form of ocean waves. An experimental 20kW power system project using Ocean Wave Technology has been build by Powercor Australia at Portland Victoria. This experimental power system consists of a permanent magnet generator, step up and down transformers, submarine cables and a set of inverters and together it supplies 2 0 k W for the loads that is mainly connected to the remote area power system. This research project has been generated to analyse and develop the protection of variable frequency A C systems. Design and simulations are carried out on a computer using M A T L A B algorithmic language software package and Power System Blockset. The mathematical model comprises of permanent magnet generator SIMULINK model, transmission lines, transformers, rectifiers, load buses, etc. The simulation made is to investigate the behaviour of the system during steady state, low and high load simulation is made to investigate the maximum possible output of the generators under overload conditions and fault studies. Consequently, the simulation is obtained by using a set of characteristic of parameters of protection system in order to implement it on a microprocessor based circuit breaker.
