Abstract— Tidal stream turbines are often described as underwater windmills. They are driven by the kinetic energy of moving water in a similar way that wind turbines use moving air. The generator is placed into a marine current that typically results when water being flowing underwater currents around the world to make this form of marine renewable energy worth pursuing. Two masses of land. There are sufficient numbers of such fast-flowing underwater currents around the world to make this form of marine renewable energy worth pursuing. Currents could also help fulfill the Climate Change Committee’s recent request in 2010 that calls for an almost complete. In figure 1, the areas between the coasts of Ireland and Scotland that are colored magenta would merit the application of tidal current capturing systems. Harnessing the marine moved by tidal forces comes up against, or moves around, an obstacle or through a constriction such as a passage between moved by tidal forces comes up against, or moves around, an obstacle or through a constriction such as a passage between two masses of land.
