Introduction1.What is a Tide?2.What is Tidal Energy? 4. The Low Tide 5. The High Tide 6. History First tidal Power Plant was builtby General De-Gaulle at LaRance in 1966. Generates 240MW. The average tidal range is8.4m . The maximum range is 13.5m. 7. Basic Principle of Tidal Power 8. Components of Tidal Power PlantThere are Three main Components:1.The Power House.2.The Dam or Barrage.3.Sluice-ways from the basin to the sea and Vice Versa 9. The Power House 10. DAM or BARRAGE 11. Sluice-ways 12. Operation methods of utilization ofTidal Energy1.Single Basin arrangement2.Double Basin arrangement 13. Simple single Basin Tidal System 14. Single ebb-cycle system 15. Single tide cycle system 16. Double Cycle System 17. StorageThey are mainly 4 types:-1. Fly Wheel Storage2. Batteries Storage3. Hydraulic Storage4. Compressed Air Storage 18. Advantages Once youve built it, tidal power is free. It produces no greenhouse gases or other waste. It needs no fuel. It produces electricity reliably. Not expensive to maintain. Tides are totally predictable. Offshore turbines and vertical-axis turbines are not ruinously expensive tobuild and do not have a large environmental impact. 19. Limitations Cost of construction of tidal power plant is high. The actual generation is for a short period of time. This transmission is expensive and difficult. Influences aquatic life adversely and can disrupt migration of fish 20. Prospects Of Tidal Energy In India
