They use the energy in the waves or in the action of rising and falling tides. Things to do: See the ‘On the Web’ panel in Topic 10, p. 29. 27 Electronics — A First Course 10 More sources of energy Hydroelectricity In hilly areas with high rainfall, the water of a stream or small river runs through a water turbine (or water wheel) to turn an electricity generator. Usually a dam is built across the stream to hold back the water. It provides a reservoir of water so that water stored there in the rainy season can be used to generate power during the drier times of the year.
Self test Fuses are always placed on the live side of an appliance. Why? (Hint: see drawing on p. 21) Fuses are rated to blow if the current exceeds a stated amount. Mains fuses such as the one in the plug (opposite) are made in 3 A, 5 A and 13 A ratings. Always select the rating according to the device being protected. Use 13 A fuses only with high-current appliances such as room heaters and vacuum cleaners. Danger from electricity • Touching live metal parts may cause burns or, in serious cases, loss of life.
The areas where several generators are clustered are known as a ‘wind farms’. The photo shows a wind farm at Albany in Western Australia. Wave power generators Usually these are sited in wide estuaries or on the coast. They use the energy in the waves or in the action of rising and falling tides.
