Tidal Energy Victor

  1. 1. TIDAL ENERGY<br />
  2. 2. ¿Qué es?<br />It is a type of energy that takes advantage of the energy of the tides. There uses the difference of height between the tide and the low tide.<br />
  3. 3. It is a renewable energy, that is to say, a type of energy that takes advantage of resources that do not end, in this case, the water <br />
  4. 4. Tides<br />The tides are periodic changes of the level of the sea that are different depending on the zones.<br />
  5. 5. The tides are produced by the attractive force of the Moon and, in minor measure, of the Sun. When in a place there is high tide, in other one there is low tide <br />
  6. 6. When the Sun and the moon attract in the same direction the alive tides are produced. <br />If they attract in opposite directions, dead tides are produced<br />
  7. 7. In order that this energy works out profitable it is necessary that the difference between tides is major of 5 meters. Therefore only it is possible to install plants in a few places.<br />
  8. 8. The Plants<br />Estuary of the river Adige (Italy) <br />The tidal power stations must place in zones closed as the estuary of a river. <br />The Guadalquivir <br />
  9. 9. A plantconsists of:<br />Francis<br />Turbine Pelton<br />A turbine "bulb" with arms or blades<br />A bun <br />- a camera of entry of the water <br />- a pipe of aspiration <br />
  10. 10. Functioning<br />1. When the tide rises, the hatches of the plant are opened to allow the step.<br />
  11. 11. 2. The deposit is closed creating a prey with the water dammed in its interior.<br />
  12. 12. 3. When the tide is in its point more low the hatches are opened to allow the step of the water along the turbines.<br />
  13. 13. 4. The turbines move the blades that, together with the alternator, produce alternating current.<br />
  14. 14. Tidal power station of the river The Rance<br />It is the only tidal power station with energetic purposes of the world. Others only are used by scientific purposes.<br />
  15. 15. It is in the river mouth of the river The Rance, in the north of France. It is formed by 24 generators. It has a power of 240 MW<br />
  16. 16. The dike has 700 m of length and 15 of height. It produces 600 millions of kwh annual, the sufficient ones as to supply 330000 persons.<br />
  17. 17. Other tidal power stations are:<br />Murmansk in Russia<br />Annapolis Royal in Canada<br />
  18. 18. Advantages<br />It neither emits any pollutant nor emits any dangerous residue <br />It is a renewable energy.<br />The cost of maintenance is low.<br />
  19. 19. Disadvantages<br />Its cost is very high.<br />The production of energy lasts only a few hours.<br />It produces a great environmental impact.<br />
  20. 20. Resumen<br />The wave energy is a clean energy, which takes advantage of the difference between tides and which does not produce pollutants but which is very expensive its construction, only one can in a few zones of the planet and that generates a great environmental impact.<br />
