How do tidal generators work?

    Tidal Generators are a potential form of hydropower that could provide some of the massive amounts of electricity our modern world needs. They work by harnessing the power of the tides. With the effects of rotation and the gravitational pull of the moon and sun Tidal energy is generated through motion. A generator utilizes the kinetic energy of the moving water as it passes through a turbine, just as wind passes through a windmill. This is still an emerging technology that needs to be honed for commercial use. However it has great potential

    See the site below for a few detailed graphics and video of how the force of the tides is converted into electricity.
