By using the alpha cluster structure model of hypernuclei and the phenomenological interaction potential between Lambda hyperon and alpha-particle, the A seperate energy of the hypernucleus C-13(Lambda) is calculated. A good agreement with the experimental data is achieved. Based on this the Lambda-seperate energy of the hypernucleus O-17(Lambda) is predicted. It is consistent with the empirical value of O-17(Lambda) and advantages over the existing theoretical calculation made up-to-date.
