Tidal Power & Energy

By Unknown - February 10, 2018

Tidal Enegi is caused by many things, including Gravity of the Moon and Earthquake.Today, Although not yet used, tidal energy has potential for future electricity generation. Tides are more predictable than the wind and the sun.

Tidal energy is the energy generated from the tides of sea water and makes it energy in other forms, especially electricity. Tidal energy is one type of renewable energy that is relatively more predictable in number than wind energy and solar energy. Its current utilization is not yet widespread because of the high initial cost and limited locations that have sufficient tides. Further research and development is continuously conducted to improve the efficiency and critical limits of the energy it generates so as to obtain various methods for extracting this type of energy.

In its history, tidal energy has been used in Europe and the east coast of North America in the form of turbines, converting them into mechanical energy and used to grind grain. New in the 19th century, this process was used to generate electricity. The first large-scale tidal power plant in the world is the Rance Tidal Power Station built in France and started operating since 1966.

Sea water is a fluid with a higher density, up to 800 times the air. In addition, the nature of tidal phenomena that can be predicted by region followed by continuous monitoring is able to maintain the supply of electrical energy from this type of power plant.
