As human exploration of the ocean continues to deepen, wave energy as an important marine resource has entered people's view. In order to explore the basic relationship between the relevant variables in the wave energy conversion device, this paper starts from the force analysis of the system and establishes the mathematical model of the kinematic equations of float and oscillator to solve the corresponding problems. Not only the vertical swing of the float and oscillator, but also their longitudinal rocking, i.e., both translational and rotational, are considered. By numerical integration, the average output power is calculated for a certain time period. With the objective of maximizing the average output power, the particle swarm optimization algorithm is applied to obtain the maximum average output power with relatively smooth power.
