A theoretical model for flow instability in parallel rectangular channels under ocean conditions was established using lumped method based on the homogeneous model. The model consists of flow instability under static condition, the model of additional forces generated by ocean conditions, the constitutive and numerical models. The effect of ocean conditions was introduced through additional forces in the momentum equation generated by ocean conditions. The code was validated with the experimental data of flow instability under static conditions. Then the margin of flow instability, the threshold power and the periods of the system under static condition was calculated as a basis condition for comparison. The effect of the heaving condition on flow instability will be analyzed analytically. Besides these, the effect of asymmetric heating and throttling under heaving condition will be shown.
