# Describe Transfer Energy Involved Wave Generating System Primary Source Electrical Output Q17765898

Describe the transfer of energy involved in a wave generating System from its primary source to its electrical output stating the type of energy involved at each stage. A tidal system in the Severn Estuary is to be proposed that captures the sea water as high tide is building and fills a reservoir of dimensions 800m times 400m up to a level of 0.5m below the level of high tide. This water is released for a period of 3 hours centred on low tide via axial flow turbines that generate electricity with an efficiency of 85% and feed the electricity grid via inverters of efficiency 92%. Estimate the volume of sea water that will be captured during a typical tide shown below. Estimate the average power output of the turbines when they are operating. Given that the tidal time period is 12.4333 hours, Estimate the amount of electrical energy that will be fed into the grid annually if the typical tide pattern shown below is constant throughout the year.Show transcribed image text Describe the transfer of energy involved in a wave generating System from its primary source to its electrical output stating the type of energy involved at each stage.
