When the turbine blade is on the return, rotating against the direction of water flow, the flap is pushed open by the water, allowing water to flow more or less freely through the aperture, greatly reducing the force of the water flow acting against the desired direction of turbine rotation. By reducing the angle of attack of the turbine blade in this way the force of the flow on the returning blade is reduced and the drag of the blade through the water is also reduced.

Water is able to travel through the device via the central space. Replacing the water in the flooded chambers by, for example pumping in compressed air, refloats the turbine allowing its recovery for repair, maintenance or relocation. Alternatively or additionally a hub to which the turbine blades are attached may have sealed air, gas or foam filled chambers. Each guide device 105 is located in a machined track 107 in a rotatable portion of the bottom plate 104 that is attached to and rotates with the turbine blades, and in operation constrains the range of motion of the hydrofoil flap 110 and the orientation of the flap 110. Stops 122 are fitted to the top plate to prevent over-rotation of the hydrofoil flaps 110 past their second, fully closed positions 114. Each track 107 is machined to have a shape that keeps the hydrofoil flap 110 tangential to the water flow at substantially all positions between the closed 114 and fully open 116 positions.

In some arrangements of flow deflector the water flow intended to act on the turbine blades in the driving configuration can be reduced, as the deflector can disturb the direction and force of flow to the driven blades. Preferably the deflector flaps operate in response to the force and direction of water flow in a manner akin to that of the cover flaps of turbine blades as described above. The turbine blades may be of any shape or form suitable for interacting with a water flow.

Figure 13 shows in cross-section a hydrofoil that is suitable for use with embodiments described herein. Further preferred features and advantages of the present invention will appear from the following detailed description of embodiments illustrated with reference to the accompanying drawings in which: Fig. For example the flow deflector may be a housing placed around the turbine and provided with deflector flaps and apertures both on the upstream and downstream sides of the turbine. The cover flaps or turbine blades can be held at the optimum angle with respect to the water flow and to each other throughout some or all of each rotation of the turbine.

The turbine blades may be arranged so that in operation water contacts at least one of the turbine blades after flowing through the central space. The cross flow effects occur when water passes through the turbine (which is possible due to the absence of the hub 4) and hits the hydrofoils 110 on the far side of the turbine to the origin of the water flow causing lift and/or drag on those hydrofoils, and thus providing a contribution to the driving of the rotation of the turbine.

It is a feature of the embodiments of Figures 7 and 8 that, due to the provision of hydrofoil flaps, and the omission of the central hub thus allowing water flow through the central space of the device, each turbine blade can contribute to the driving of rotation of the turbine throughout substantially all of each rotation of the turbine. The turbine is thus powered by the water flow acting on the blade when in the first driving configuration. Cover flaps or blades that are hydrofoils generate “lift” forces, forces at an angle to the direction of travel of the blade or cover flap, as water flows past them. Said at least one turbine blade may be formed and arranged to generate lift when in the return configuration to rotate the turbine. When the turbine blade is being driven by a water flow, the cover flap is pushed shut (against an edge of the aperture, for example) to cover its corresponding aperture.

This means that when the cover flaps are in their first positions the turbine blade can present a continuous surface to the forces of water flow. Alternatively adjustable turbine blades may be used as a means to control the power output. By this means the hydrofoil cover flap or turbine blade is constrained to a selected or optimum path of motion about its pivot as the turbine rotates. Remedios caseros para dolor de espalda alta . The pivot shaft allows the blade to pivot about an axis at or near one end of the turbine blade. The blades or cover flaps for blades may be shaped as hydrofoils and may pivot about an axis that is parallel to the turbine axis as the configuration changes from first to second. Advantageously the cover flaps or moveable blades may be latched into place when in the first configuration and released to allow movement to the second configuration at an optimum point during the rotation of the turbine e.g.

For example the flow deflector may be a plate or a housing fitted with opening and closing deflector flaps that open to allow flow through corresponding apertures and close to prevent flow therethrough. This reduces the drag forces of the flap through the water. The plan view of Figure 2 shows the operation of the turbine 1 of Figure 1. Dolor de hombro intenso . The direction of water flow is indicated by the broad arrow 18. The direction of rotation of the turbine 1 is shown by the curved arrow 19. Turbine blades 2 that are rotating in the direction of flow are in their first driving configuration and have their cover flaps 10 in their first closed positions 14 so that the turbine blades 2 present a continuous surface to the water flow and are driven round by it. Turbine blades 2 that are rotating against the direction of water flow are in their second, return configuration and have their cover flaps 10 opened 16 by the action of the water flow and drag through the water.

In some locations a turbine rotating about a vertical axis has the advantage that it can be located in a body of water whilst still allowing shipping to pass freely above without risk of collision. This has the advantage of simplifying power extraction means, which otherwise have to be arranged to operate with a turbine that periodically reverses rotational direction. In this case rotational motion of the hub can be converted into useable power.

The turbine 100 can be used, for example, in rivers or in tidal stream currents. For example, a single control system may be used to monitor and control the array of turbines. The control system may control, for example, adjustable turbine blades, moveable flap portions, moveable flow deflectors and/or powered cover flaps as discussed above. The flow deflector or housing may be moveable.

The flow deflector may be located in use in front of the turbine (i.e. A neutral buoyancy, at the depth of water where the turbine is located in use, is preferred. A variant of the turbine device 100 of Figure 7 is illustrated in operation in Figure 8, in which the direction of water flow is illustrated by solid arrows. One significant difference between the housing 162 of the embodiment of Figures 11a and lib and that of the embodiment of Figures 5a to 5d is that the housing 162 does not include any flow deflectors 26. In certain embodiments, the turbine 100 or the turbine unit 160 is instead placed within a larger pipe or funnel to intensify the flow of water to the turbine 100, although effective operation can nevertheless be obtained without such pipe or funnel. The present invention relates to the provision of a water powered turbine for extracting energy from flowing water.

Flekosteel Figure 1 shows a turbine 1 of the invention. Greater power extraction can be obtained where the turbine blades, or cover flaps fitted to apertures in the turbine blades, are formed and arranged to extract power from the water flow when on the return. In a tidal situation the deflector or housing (if fitted) is moved when the tide turns if power is to be extracted in both directions of tidal flow. In an ocean use can be made of tidal flows or currents to provide power for onshore uses offshore uses, for example to power desalination plant or provide power on an oilrig. It has also been found that the profiles and angles at which the hydrofoils are sitting relative to each other can be optimised to provide a larger impact area. When the tidal flow reverses (arrow 18 reversed) the upstream face 40 of the housing will become the downstream face 42 and vice versa.
