CA2510171A1 – Modular System For Generating Electricity From Moving Water – Google Patents

Getting up from the bed every day isn't easy The present invention, unlike previous efforts to generate electricity from moving water, is practical and economical because its design uses both a new turbine, which surpasses the efficiencies of other known fluid driven turbines, and a durable simple construction to achieve long term unattended operation. The presented vertical axis paddlewheel turbine is far more effective in its operation than is a prior art: (1 ) the amount of frictional force is negligible because the frictional area of the horizontally oriented blades is close to zero; (2) torque is gained by an increase in horizontal distance instead of an increase in vertical distance, which allows it to be used in shallow water currents with a very low head; (3) it is of simple construction and. A converter consists of a detachable vertical axis water driven turbine, connected to the detachable electrical generator.

Employing a vertical axis hydro turbine, having an arrangement of paddles in an innovative way that excludes their main drawback–the unwonted friction of the turbine blades due to water resistance, achieves this. In this respect, the hydro-energy conversion device according to the present invention substantially departs from the conventional concepts and designs of the prior art, and in doing so provides a cost-effective solution primarily developed for the purpose of modular water driven systems for generating electricity.

The main object of the present invention is to create a new and more practical system for harvesting kinetic energy of river, ocean or tidal currents, by overcoming the drawbacks of the known systems utilizing a new type of water driven turbine. The system module’s protective housing SO is a strong steel frame, which has a symmetrical shape of the right rhomboid prism. 6 and 7) is a strong steel frame 44, which has a symmetrical shape of a right rhomboid prism.

The system module’s protective housing 60 is a strong steel frame, which has a symmetrical shape of the right rhomboid prism. The system module’s protecting housing 21, shown in FIGs.I and 2, is a strong steel frame having a shape of the right trapezoid prism, which supports the turbine 22, deflector 24, and the electrical generator 23. Additionally, the protecting housing includes the detachable filter and screen panels. 7ector 24, and to protect the converter from debris. 12, an array of diverting modules 48, unidirectional converting modules 71 and bidirectional converting modules 72 can be arranged side by side, thus providing versatile forms of flexible and cost-effective hydroelectric power systems capable of harvesting kinetic energy of the tidal currents. One or more modules can be anchored at various locations in a river or an ocean for the purpose of generating electricity, pumping water or operating mechanisms or the like.

The only difference is that a buoyant force is applied to the floatable blades of the upper paddles instead of a gravitational force applied to the sinkable blades of the lower paddles. The bidirectional converting module (FIG. The embodiment B is a system assembly comprised of an array of interconnected unidirectional converting modules, bidirectional converting modules, and diverting modules, and capable of harvesting the kinetic energy of tides that alternate the direction of their movements at 180 degrees. The system comprises an array of interconnected submersible converting and diverting modules to harness water power. Dolor en el dedo indice de la mano izquierda . When water flows against the partially opened blades on the power generating side of the paddlewheel the water current is applied as an opening force against the blades.

10) contains a water current energy converter placed inside the protective housing S0. Each converting module contains a water flow energy converter positioned in a protecting housing with proper bearings. Each converting module (see FIGS.1 and 2) contains a water current energy converter positioned in a protecting housing 21 with proper bearings. 2) funnels incoming water current through the working side 38 of the turbine 22 and protects the resting (opposite) side 39 of the turbine 22 from moving water. The filter panels and screens, cover the frame’s entrances to prevent clogging of the module by submerged objects (debris) carried by water current. Such companies as Verdant Power, UEK Corporation, Marine Current Turbines Ltd. Horizontal Axis Hydro Turbines This category covers devices, which are known as Submersible Propeller Water Turbines or Underwater Windmills. In an underwater hydropower system, the kinetic energy of flowing water is transformed into mechanical energy by use of a turbine.

The flow deflector 24 (see EIGS.

It is yet another object of the invention to produce a water flow energy converter, which is capable of modular installation, such that particular units may be added to or removed from a particular location as required. 9, an array of converting modules 47 and diverting modules 48 may be arranged side by side in order to intersect any cross sectional area of the flow nearly completely, thus providing versatile forms of hydroelectric power systems using any combinations of the above system modules, which are inexpensive to build, install and maintain. The array of these modules may be arranged side by side, so as to intersect any cross sectional area of the flow nearly completely, thus providing versatile forms of flexible hydroelectric power systems, which are inexpensive to build, install and maintain. The flow deflector 24 (see EIGS. The flow deflector 62 is secured to the housing in a pivotal manner.

The nature of the system according to the present invention is such that it needs never totally block the natural flow of the river. The present invention provides a system for producing electricity from the kinetic energy present in flowing water. It is apparent from the foregoing, that a need exists for a new and improved hydro-energy conversion device that can be used for water driven system for generating electricity. T’he electrical generator 23 transforms the rotational energy of the turbine into electricity.

The embodiment B is the system assembly comprising an array of interconnected submersible modules capable of harvesting the kinetic energy of tides that alternate direction of their movement at 180 degrees. The diverting modules play a vital role in improving the efficiency of the system. It is a furkher object of the invention to produce a water flow energy converter, which can be installed below the surface and upon the ocean or river floor, thus providing a vast number of possible site-locations fox installation of such a device. This converter consists of a detachable vertical axis hydro-turbine 22, analogous to the one described in the embodiment A, the detachable electrical generator 23, and a pair of flow deflectors S3 and S4 which are rotatably mounted to said protective housing S0. Firstly, the main problem with this type of equipment is that the shutters are never folded down into the disk completely because of the inherited conflict of interests between two forces: a gravitational force trying to keep the shatters opened, and an opposing frictional force trying to close the shatters on the frictional side of the disk.

Such gives a time advantage for assembly and further maintenance. It is attached to the rim of the turbine’s wheel, which serves as gear to avoid the need for a gearing speed inereaser, which would otherwise be required to connect a slowly spinning paddlewheel’s hub to an electrical generator. Therefore, an additional gearing speed increases may be required, further decreasing the turbine’s cost-effectiveness. Dolor de espalda al acostarse boca arriba . This drawback substantially decreases the turbine’s efficiency. This is achieved through the use of the diverting modules to create artificial reefs that redirect water flows into converting modules. It would be advantageous to minimize the frictional resistance of the rotating blades during the portion of rotation when the water is moving in a direction that generally opposes such rotation. 1-he blades may be manufactured from any suitable material, such as a steel, aluminum, plastic or fiberglass, which provides sufficient buoyancy for the floatable blades, and reasonable gravity for the sinkable blades.
