Paper Title:
Research on Support Structures of a Horizontal Axial Tidal Current Energy Conversion System
  Abstract

Three support structures with different configurations have been selected to be presented in this paper. Through numerical simulations of structures subjected to current loads, wave hydrodynamic loads and inertia loads, some useful results are gained. The results show that first scheme is simple but stress is largest of all, and second scheme is reasonable for the loads are transferred effectively, and third scheme is less stable. Thus research work provides a valuable reference for harnessing of tidal energy.
