In another aspect, the invention features an apparatus including modular vertically floating units tethered to shore with a generator residing above a waterway and a plurality of vertically oriented blades submerged in the waterway to convert a latent kinetic energy of a moving waterway into electricity. The concept of this invention is a zero-head technology that converts the latent kinetic energy of a moving waterway into electricity.
FIG. 7A is a diagram of a side view of a floating hydro generator module that can be anchored into the bed of the water channel. Depending upon the waterway conditions and flow speed, the floating module 700 can be anchored into the bed of the waterway 701 using an extension to the main hollow structural pipe 702. This extension 703 can vary in length to meet the depth of the waterway and is inserted from above the water line 704 for easy installation. Our opinion is that because the direction of the wind in an open environment is more volatile to changes in both speed and direction than in a hydro environment, that we should be able to generate even better results because the flow and direction of the water flow is consistent.

Furthermore it exploits the length of the waterway, allowing it to scale far more easily and can thus operate in an environment as small as irrigation canals. FIG. 6A is a diagram of a side view of symmetrical vertical blades in an operational array attached to the generator 600 suspended on a floating device 601 that is tethered to land or other secured anchoring point 602. We refer to these as “Floating hydro-generator modules.” The tethering of the units can be accomplished using rope, cables or other natural or man-made materials that provide strength and resilience in a wet environment. In this implementation, the blades and generator are supported and anchored by structural beams 800 stretching across the width of the waterway and anchored to a land based support. The center of rotation 500 and the black area show the area of circulation of the blades.

FIG. 12. is an illustration showing the rotation direction of the individual floating hydro-generator modules in a downstream vertically oriented array to maximize the power of the water flow. As the generators are located above the water line, it can be easily maintained or replaced without shutting down the entire array.

FIG. 8B is a diagram of an above view of symmetrical vertical blades in an operational array which is attached directly to land or other secured anchoring point using structural support beams 810. The system can use two or multiple number of support beams and cross beams 811 to anchor the generator and rotating blades. This configuration can be quickly and easily scaled up or down as necessary simply by attaching more generator modules downstream. Dolor muscular cuello garganta . What is unique is the floating platform of the present invention for generating power, the minimal infrastructural needs and the proven scientific theories behind the modular configuration. Add the advantages of a low cost, reliable, fast deploying technology, requiring little/no civil work and the result is a disruptively low turnkey cost for generating power and lowest Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) among renewables.
The low cost of infrastructure, soft costs and installation speed of the present system ensures the lowest turnkey cost and efficiency in the renewable category. Despite the recent drop in the cost of solar installations, the impact of our innovations is that in a micro-grid installation, we could create four times the power at half the cost of solar. The cost spread is even larger when battery storage, which is a necessity for a 24 hour solution, is added to the equation. These show various dimensions of the same blade which can be used in diverse hydro environments. The innovative nature of our hydro solution is that in relatively stable water flow environments (e.g., rivers, irrigation canals, and so forth) the volume may fluctuate, but the speed of the water is relatively constant, flows 24 hours and thus eliminates the need for power storage. This array can be arranged either by using floating hydro generator modules or non-floating hydro generator modules in environments where existing canal infrastructure permits.
FIG. 7B is a diagram of an above view of the floating hydro generator module that can be anchored to the bed of the waterway. Shows the floating hydro generator modules secured 610 at four point to the land based anchor points. The anchoring point can be to an existing structure or a man-made foundation can be built as a land anchor or other securing point for the module. FIG. 6B is a diagram of an above view of a floating hydro-generator module tethered to a secured anchoring point. FIG. 8A is a diagram of a side view of symmetrical vertical blades in an operational array which is attached directly to land or other secured anchoring point using structural support beams. It is possible to modify our system to match a wide band of water flow speeds and water depths by adjusting the width and heights of the blades. Existing hydro solutions are also limited to the width of the waterway as they disrupt the flow of water downstream due to the nature of their design and once constructed are difficult to scale without substantial disruption and investment.
