How is tidal energy harnessed in tidal barrage?
The flow of the water over the turbine helps to harness tidal energy. Tidal barrage uses the energy of the tides generated during the high tide low tides. These tides are due to the gravitational force of the sun moon. In between the sluice gates turbines are placed to generate electricity.
What is tidal energy&how does it work?
What is tidal energy how it works? Tidal energy is the process of converting tide energy into electricity or any other useful form. Tides are generating in the ocean because of the gravitational force of the moon, sun motion of the earth. Due to these reasons, high tide low tides generate.
How do we get energy from the tides?
Various setups used to harness energy from tides. Tidal Barrages: A tidal barrage is a dam that taps the potential energy generated by the difference in the height of the high tide and the low tide. The gates of the barrages are kept closed when it is high tide.
What is the efficiency of tidal power?
The efficiency of the tidal power depends on the tide flow the design of the blade. At a speed of 2.5 m/s efficiency of deformed, pre-deformed rigid blade varies from 45.5 % to 47.6 %. It is a renewable source of energy.
