Due to the oil price is increasing continuously, active researches on sources of renewable energy has been invigorated. Above all, ocean energy has high-usability because of ocean current has high density and large quantity compared to the wind energy. In this paper, efficiency enhancement of the wave power generation was described through horizontal plate installation at the break water wave power generation system that converts the ocean energy into electricity. The power-conversion efficiency can be improved by horizontal plate installation at existing system, but there has been insufficient studies domestically. The purpose of this paper is to analyze about the effects of the horizontal plate installation on the breakwater wave power generation system by wave basin experiment and to propose a position of horizontal plate installation.
