Energy is an everlasting demand which sustains humanity and its activity throughout the world. The main problem energy for all country is still using fossil energy. Using fossil energy caused pollution and contaminate environment. Adopting Ocean wave energy we can convert the wave into eco-green energy. Wave energy in Indonesia very abundant, it’s coastal line is 95,181 km number 2 in the world after Canada. The device that used to convert ocean wave energy into electrical energy is called WECs (Wave Energy Converters). Latterly, there are many kinds of WECs that already developed by an engineer. Pendulum system is one sample of WECs, its has uncomplicated working principle. Zamrisyaf is The man who first invented the device in 2010. Recently, the researcher still haven’t found the parameter of pontoon geometry that can afford a good sea keeping for this WECs. In this research, the authors has been performed using experimental approach to test the pendulum system. The purpose of this study is to analyze the novel geometry of pontoon that identical to trimaran that can produce a large amplitude of pendulum oscillation through an experimental approach. The analyzed aspect is the combination of outrigger length, outrigger height, pendulum rod length, pendulum mass, and wave periods which have a maximum amplitude of pendulum oscillation. The analysis results show that the better solution is pontoon thus has outrigger height of 40 mm, pendulum rod length of 106.7 mm, outrigger length of 413 mm, pendulum mass of 20, and wave periods of 0.8 s have a maximum amplitude of pendulum oscillation as big as 60 degrees.
