Tidalpower

  1. 1. Tidal Power Randie Engstrom Neadeau Period: 7
  2. 2. About <ul><li>It is a type of hydropower that converts the energy from tides into electricity. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Procedure <ul><li>Dams, basins, sluice. </li></ul><ul><li>The dam has a sluice so that the waves can flow into the basin. When the basin fills up the sluice closes. When the sea level drops we use technology to get energy from the high elevated water in the basin. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Energy <ul><li>Tidal power has very high energy potential. Some countries use it as their number one energy source, and it is very renewable. </li></ul><ul><li>To produce energy economically you need at least 10 ft. high tides. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Cause <ul><li>Tides are caused by a gravitational pull of the moon and the sun together. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s also cause by a great rotation of the Earth. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Tides <ul><li>Tides can vary up to 40 feet high. </li></ul><ul><li>There are only about 20 locations where we can get energy like this. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Disadvantages <ul><li>The most potential disadvantage of tidal power would be the impact it has on plants and animals. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Advantages <ul><li>Renewable </li></ul><ul><li>Reliable </li></ul><ul><li>Predictable </li></ul><ul><li>Non-polluting </li></ul>
