Utilization of the sustainable and renewable sea wave energy has recently received special attention by the virtue of being a free, clean and zero-carbon footprint power source. This paper presents a novel approach to model, design, analyze and control a sea wave electric power generating system using an artificial intelligent nonlinear auto regressive with external input neural networks (NARX-NN). Modeling design, and analysis of an electro-mechanical power-generating system using linear permanent magnet generator attached to a dual spring-mass-damper platforms is introduced. The purpose of this proposed generator is to convert sea and ocean wave kinetic energy into a useful electrical power generated as a result of the linear motion core through an electromagnetic stator. One of the direct applications of the sea wave generator is to install one or more units on shipboard to contribute to its power utility needs whether it is moving or floating. The dynamical stability and compensator control of the spring-mass damper generator platform is analyzed along with its associated electric power. Faraday’s law based results show that the output induced voltage ranges from -60 to 60 volts (120 volts p-p). Moreover, artificial intelligent nonlinear auto-regressive neural networks are used to train, validate, and test the sea wave electric generator output. Two-layer NN are used to train the dynamical input-output relationship of the proposed system using one hidden layer that contains of 10 neurons. Two delays are used, one for motion input and one for voltage output. The NARX-NN training demonstrates that the network is being trained efficiently and tracks the actual sea wave electric generator output with a very low mean-square-error performance response without the need to measure the variables.
