It is an undeniable fact that renewable energy is nearly infinite and pollution-free, and that the demand for it is increasing. What is important here is the conversion of this energy into a usable energy form. Among new renewable energy, ocean wave energy is highly efficient, with various routes to harvest this energy. A lot of research is still in process on wave energy. Also, as the wave surges in the ocean far away from the land, applications in fish farms or drill ships that are distant

We examined the variation of produced electric power with Wells turbine's different tip to hub ratio like 3:1 and 2:1. There was a noticeable distinction between 3:1 turbine and 2:1 turbine. We have examined the elements that influenced this outcome and how it affected the operation of the sensor node. The result of this research may be adopted in real marine environments, utilized in fish farms, and referred in research for reinforcing the structure of independent power plants.
