How does a tidal energy generator produce electricity?





Question: How does a tidal energy generator produce electricity?

Answer: The principles behind tidal power generators are the same for all electrical generators. The exception is that tides are used to spin the turbine which in turn rotates the magnets within copper wiring which produces an electrical charge in the same way other electrical generators work. All forms of hydrodynamic (water flow) electricity convert mechanical motion into electricity in the same way as this.
