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. As the tide changes and the magnitude of the current speed increases, the one or more generators may be operated at a faster RPM to generate more electrical power from the ocean currents.
The directional converter converts this force into mechanical energy (e.g., rotational energy), and that mechanical energy is transmitted to an electrical power generator for electricity generation. The electric generator, however, may require a faster rotational input than can be provided by a relatively simple gearing mechanism that does not include a gear multiplication arrangement.

The control mechanism may include hydraulics or an electric motor that may be powered by the energy generated by the displacement vessel. As the flow of water causes the turbine 1750 to rotate, the coupling mechanism causes the drum 1713 a to rotate, thus winding or unwinding the anchor cable 1703. The anchor cable 1703 may extend along the bay/ocean floor, through a pulley 1726, and be coupled to a drum 1713 b that is associated with the directional converter 1709, thus causing the drum 1713 b to rotate and unwind the anchor cable 1703 from the drum 1713 b. The spring may store potential energy as its coils are compressed by the rotation of the drum 113 due to the unwinding of the anchor cable or drive cable from the drum 113. As the displacement vessel 102 falls with the tide, the coils of the spring may expand (from the forces stored in the compressed coils) causing the axle 115 to rotate in an opposite direction and produce rotational energy that is then transmitted to the electrical power generator for generating electric power during the falling tide.
The arms 1138 a-1138 c house control cables 1128 a-1128 c, respectively, which are coupled at one end to an anchor cable 1103 via a coupling mechanism 1111 at a first end of the anchor cable 1103 and are coupled at the other end to a control mechanism that may reside on or within the displacement vessel, as described in more detail below. For example, compartments 2044 a and 2044 c may house control mechanisms, such as winches, that are configured to wind/unwind control cables (not shown). For example, a chamber 423 d at the bottom of the displacement vessel may include a thicker compartment wall so that it can be inflated to a higher pressure while chamber 423 a at the top of the displacement vessel may include a thinner compartment wall and be inflated to a lower pressure such that the chamber 423 d at the bottom can withstand greater compression pressure from the external environment.

6A. Displacement vessel frame 602 may include a buoyancy mechanism such that it may be configured, as is known in the art, to float at the surface of the water and hold the directional converter 609 shown in FIG. The displacement vessel 102 may be partially or wholly hollow and substantially or completely water-tight so that it is buoyant in water. The motor may be connected to the drive gear and be configured to wind up excess slack in the anchor cable. When power is needed, the displacement vessels may be released, and the falling weight of the displacement vessel will exert a force on the spring or cable connected to the lifting mechanism. If two or more such displacement vessels are connected together, the two or more displacement vessels may be spaced apart by, for example, struts to define a gap or window in the displacement vessel. The control mechanism may controllably deploy the drag panel 521 at a specified time, such as a time when strong current conditions exist, to a second deployed position.
