Torque

energy

Torque is the rotational equivalent of linear force.

Toroidal core winding technology

energy

With the toroidal core winding technology an electric coil or winding is created by winding an electrical conductor (e.g. copper wire) through the circular ring and evenly distributing it over the circumference.

Topography

energy

Topography is the study of the forms and features of land surfaces.

Tonne of oil equivalent

energy

The tonne of oil equivalent (toe) is a unit of energy defined as the amount of energy released by burning one tonne of crude oil.

Top drive

energy

A top drive is a mechanical device on a drilling rig that provides clockwise torque to the drill string to drill a borehole.

Ton of refrigeration

energy

A ton of refrigeration, also called a refrigeration ton, is a unit of power used in some countries (especially in North America) to describe the heat-extraction capacity of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment.

Tide mill

energy

A tide mill is a water mill driven by tidal rise and fall.

Tide gauge

energy

A tide gauge is a device for measuring the change in sea level relative to a vertical datum.

Tide

energy

Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun, and the rotation of the Earth.

Tidal stream generator

energy

A tidal stream generator, often referred to as a tidal energy converter, is a machine that extracts energy from moving masses of water, in particular tides.

Tidal power

energy

Tidal power or tidal energy is harnessed by converting energy from tides into useful forms of power, mainly electricity using various methods.

energy

A tidal energy design that can capture the potential energy of tides by construction of circular retaining walls embedded with turbines.

Tidal energy

energy

Energy that is harnessed from the rise and fall of ocean tides.

Tidal barrage

energy

A tidal barrage is a dam-like structure used to capture the energy from masses of water moving in and out of a bay or river due to tidal forces.
