FIG. 10 shows a bottom view of displacement vessel 1002 that is adapted to be rotatable, as indicated above and as further explained below. The displacement vessel 1002 may be adapted to float in the water by way of a floatation device as described above and below. Alternatively, the two drums may be operatively coupled such that the second cable may be automatically rewound on its drum as the cable on the first drum is unwound and thus be ready for unwinding as the displacement vessel moves in the other/opposite direction. The drum may be coupled via an anchor cable to a directional converter such as the directional converters described above.
In another example, as the tide falls vertically, the displacement vessel 102 lowers, and the vertical distance 119 a between the anchor points 108 a-108 e and the displacement vessel 102 decreases. In another aspect of the present invention, the tidal energy conversion assembly utilizes drag forces caused by the ebb and flow of water during tidal action to generate energy. The tidal energy conversion assembly may use this information in addition to location information from the GPS to direct itself, using a thruster and/or rudder mechanism, towards the currents or maintain a specific location within currents to generate electrical power. A tidal electrical energy generation assembly of the present invention utilizes the vertical rising/falling of tidal action, and/or the lateral drift due to drag forces caused by the ebb and flow of water during tidal action to generate energy. In particular, a distance D may be selected between the pivot frame 1536 and the drum 1513 such that the approach angle of the anchor cable, also known in the art as fleet angle, is optimal for the particular assembly setup.

Because a fixed magnet generator may produce electrical power at lower rotational speeds than traditional electric generators, a direct drive approach may be used to operatively couple the directional converter to the generator. As the tide changes and the magnitude of the current speed increases, other directional converters and/or generators may be engaged all at once or sequentially to produce electrical energy. The directional converter may convert the force into mechanical energy and transmit the mechanical energy to an electrical power generator to generate electricity for storage and/or consumption. In an aspect of the present invention, the displacement vessel 502 is capable of connecting, disconnecting, and/or reconnecting to different locations (e.g., different anchors) along the seabed as the displacement vessel drifts in a lateral direction relative to a first stationary location on the seabed. The anchors 108 a-108 c are secured in stationary location 106, which may be the seabed or a platform elevated above the bay/ocean floor.
However, the anchors 108 a-108 c may include a pulley mechanism through which the anchors cables are threaded to reduce friction between the anchor cables 103 a-103 c and the anchors 108 a-108 c. The motor may be connected to the drive gear and be configured to wind up excess slack in the anchor cable. Drive gear 112 is coupled to the same axle as the drum 113, and thus the rotation of the drum 113 causes the drive gear 112 to rotate. Drive gear 112 is also fixed to the axle 115 and thus rotates due to the rotation of the axle 115. The drive gear 112 may be coupled to a gearing mechanism 114 such that the rotation (and thus rotational energy) is transferred through the gearing mechanism 114 to the electrical power generator to generate electricity.

Thus, the electrical power may be supplied to the consumer in either DC or AC. As the currents caused by the ebb and flow of water during tidal action drag the displacement vessel laterally from the initial starting point, the lateral movement of the displacement vessel will cause the anchor cable to exert tension forces on the drum, and the drum will rotate. The second anchor cable may be reeled back into the second drum when the displacement vessel moves again in the first direction. Dolor lumbar escoliosis . The displacement vessel houses, supports, or is attached to a directional converter operatively coupled to at least one anchor cable and a generator. The displacement vessel 2002 may further include one or more compartments 2044 a, 2044 b, and 2044 c. While FIGS. 11A-11D illustrate arms 1138 a-1138 c having control cables 1128 a-1128 c passing through a conduit in the arms 1138 a-1138 c, in another embodiment as described above with respect to FIG.

In yet another embodiment, a generator and directional converter may be mounted to each of the stationary locations and coupled to the displacement vessel 2202 such that as the tidal action causes the displacement vessel 2202 to move in a first direction, it causes both generators to spin and generate electrical power, and as the tidal action causes the displacement vessel 2202 to move in the opposite direction, it causes both generators to spin (in opposite rotational directions relative to their rotations during displacement vessel 2202 movement in the first direction, but not necessarily relative to each other) to generate electrical power during the entire tidal cycle.

In another aspect of the invention, the invention comprises a method of generating electricity from the vertical tidal motion into rotational energy and transferring the resulting rotational energy to operate an electrical power generator for producing electricity. This vertical change in distance may be converted into rotational energy that is used to energize the electrical power generator to generate electricity. FIG. 6B illustrates a displacement vessel frame 602 suitable for energy generation using drift or drag as described above and in related to 5A-5C. Displacement vessel frame 602 may be used in conjunction with the directional converter, such as the directional converter 609 shown in FIG. In an alternative embodiment, the second directional converter 909 b may be operatively couple to a second generator (not shown). The turbine may be coupled to a drum that is under water (or alternatively above water in the case that the turbine is floating at the surface of the water) via a coupling mechanism that may be, for example, a chain or cable.
