Advanced composite materials are broadly used because of their high strength to weight ratios and high corrosion resistance. A wound composite material wheel has been developed and is intended to be used for many purposes. One of these applications is marine current turbine. A major problem influencing the design and operation of water turbines is fatigue. Another challenge that water turbines have to face is that the turbines must be able to withstand large forces due to the increase in flow velocity. Considering these factors, implementation of composite materials in water turbine is explained in this paper. This novel design pattern of composite material marine current turbine shows many advantages compared to traditional turbines. This paper presents the preliminary analysis of the application of composite material in marine current turbine.
