Tidal Energy Plant in South Korea (biggest in the world)
Technology and Development
With the water moving up and down we are to be able to capture some of that tidal energy. Tidal generators (or under water turbines) work like wind turbines, but uses the tides (Who could have guessed that). An ebb is the movement of the tide out to sea.the average electric power output is severely limited by the twice-daily ebb and is less than 40% of the installed generating capacity. The lunar cycle of 24 hours 50 minutes means the raw production of tidal energy moves in and out of phase with the normal, solar-oriented daily pattern of electrical consumption. optimum tidal-power locations are site-specific, which often means that lengthy power transmission lines must be provided to move the power from the tidal-power site to the end user.
