Tidal current as a large-scale renewable source of energy has received significant attention recently. The technology used to harvest energy from tidal current is called a tidal current turbine. Although some of the principles of wind turbine design are applicable to tidal current turbines, to ensure long-term reliability in tidal current turbines, designers must consider elements such as cavitation damage and corrosion. Depending on the orientation of axis, tidal current turbines can be… CONTINUE READING
