The first and/or second central portion may have a helix diameter larger than a width of the supports transverse to the plane, preferably at least 4 times larger. For example, the helix may have a diameter at least four times larger than this width. While we have referred to the device 100 as an energy generating device 100, it is also anticipated that the same device 100 could be driven by an external motor and act substantially as a pump. In the present embodiment the projection is on the socket portion and the track on the ball portion of the ball and socket joint it is also anticipated that these could be reversed with the track on the socket and the projection on the ball. Each rotor 14 comprises a plurality of joints 14B. The joints are correspondingly spaced along the central portion 14A of each rotor 14. A plurality of fins 16 extend between these joints 14B. In particular, each fin 16 extends between a respective joint 14B on the first rotor 14 and a respective joint 14B on the second rotor 14. In this sense, the plurality of fins 16 form a lattice along the length of the rotors 14. Each fin 16 may be generally parallel to each other fin 16. Each of the fins 16 is elongate and comprises first and second impingement surfaces.
This is as a result of the generally symmetrical design of the device 100. The device 100 would operate in exactly the same manner as described above for the forward operation. Figures 7 to 9 show how the forces imparted to each fin 16 result in rotation of the rotor 14. The fin 16 of Figure 7 is at an angle of incidence 8 to the plane and consists of first impingement surface 16C and second impingement surface 16D on opposite sides of the fin 16. A flow of water 22 impinges upon the first impingement surface 16C. This flow of water is then deflected and accelerates in the direction 26. As a result of this, an acceleration 24 is applied to the fin 16 and transferred to the rotor 14. As the angle of incidence 0 is varied, the resultant forces will likewise be varied. Dolor de pierna izquierda desde la ingle . This allows ships to pass over the device or around it. Additionally, barrages result in static water building up behind the device, where pollutants may accumulate.

This contrasts to a water wheel where half is operating in the direction of the flow, and the other half travelling against the flow. An angle of incidence may be defined between the first and second impingement surfaces and the plane, the fins arranged such that the angle of incidence is maximised when the fins pass through the plane and minimised when the fins are furthest from the plane. A plane is defined which passes through both of the supports. This connection at the joint 14B may be such that an angle of incidence 0 can be defined between the impingement surface facing the flow of water and the plane. Each joint may comprise a ball and socket joint, wherein: either an inner surface of the socket or an outer surface of the ball comprises one or more projections; the other of the inner surface of the socket or the outer surface of the ball comprises a track for receiving the follower projection such that movement of the follower in the track transfers the rotation of the first and/or second rotor about the first and/or second axes into oscillation of each fin about each fin axis.

In the particular embodiment shown in Figures 5 and 6 the joint 14B is a ball and socket joint. In embodiments with three or more rotors 14, each additional rotor may also be rotatably attached between the supports 12. Fins 16 may be attached between the second rotor 14 and a third rotor 14. Alternatively, or additionally, fins 16 may be attached between a third rotor 14 and a fourth rotor 14, and so on. The first rotor 14 extends between the first and second supports 12. In particular, the first rotor 14 is rotatably mounted to the first and second supports 12. The rotational mounting is about a first axis of rotation. This ensures that the fins extend well beyond any footprint of the supports, and hence are generally contacting water which has not been impeded by the supports.
This is illustrated in Figure 8 which shows the generated acceleration An for a number of fins 16 along a rotor 14. Dolor de espalda al levantarse de la cama . From above we can see that Al, Az, Aa and As have an acceleration towards the right of the figure A4, As and A6 have an acceleration towards the left of the figure and A3 and A7 generally have no generated acceleration. Each fin axis of rotation may be generally parallel to the plane.
An energy generating apparatus is provided according to claim 13. This apparatus may effectively form a tidal fence, which extends across a wider area of water to increase energy generation. A method of generating energy from a flow of fluid is provided according to claim 14. This method takes advantage of the device or apparatus set out above. An example device for capturing energy from a fluid flow that is not a conventional propeller is disclosed in WO 2007/019607 Al. The central portion 14A may have a helix angle of between 0° and 90°, preferably between 10° and 80°, most preferably between 30° and 60°. The angle should be selected to ensure that there are no clashes between components of the device 100. The angle can also be selected to optimise the device for a given application. This will be described in more detail later but is relevant to ensure that a constant rotating movement is imparted to the rotors 14. The joints 14A of the rotors connect to a connection portion 16A of the fin 16. This connection is such that as the rotors rotate about the first and second axes, the fins 16 oscillate between the first and second positions to ensure that the generated acceleration is in the correct direction to ensure continued rotation of the rotors.
As with the first rotor 12, the second rotor 12 also comprises a central portion 14A which is substantially helical. In this sense, the energy generating device 100 or energy generating assembly may be placed into a waterway such that a flow of fluid is substantially parallel to the plane(s). Dolor de espalda medico especialista . As a result, substantially the same shape is presented, regardless of the direction of the flow of water. As a result, a method of generating energy is such that an energy generating device 100 can be supplied to a flow of water and as the water flows it impinges upon the first or second impingement surfaces of fins 16 along the length of the rotors 14. This impingement generates a net rotational movement for the rotor 14. As the rotor 14 rotates the fins 16 oscillate so that the generated acceleration continues to drive rotation of the rotor 14. An energy output is then connected to the first and/or second rotor in order to extract energy from the energy generating device 100. In particular, the energy output may be in the form of one or more generators attached to the rotor 14. In a particular embodiment, each rotor may be connected at either end to a generator (for a total of four generators in a two rotor design).

That is, a device which generates electricity based upon the flow of water in tidal regions. In such an embodiment it is possible that each energy generating device 100 has an individual support 12. Alternatively, each support 12 may extend from a larger central support acting as the superstructure for the energy generating assembly. The nature of the device is also such that it can only generate energy in a given position when water is flowing in a single direction. Alternatively, each fin 16 may be shaped so as to generate more energy from water flowing in a particular direction, such as in a river installation. When the tide changes, the member must be physically rotated around in order to generate energy from the reversed flow. This optimises the energy transferred from the flow of fluid to the rotation of the rotors.

Each fin axis of rotation will be separate to one another. A single turn is inherently counterbalanced by its weight about the centre line of each central portion, which may ensure smooth rotation by aligning the centre of mass with the centre line of rotation, thus gravitational force shall not apply a significant acceleration to the motion of the device. This results in significant engineering challenges to ensure the device can survive its environment. As none of the motion components significantly operate in the reverse direction of flow. Additionally, it is inconvenient to convert oscillating motion into electricity with a conventional electrical generator.
The tip speed for a conventional propeller increases in a squared relationship with the radius of the turbine. This allows the supports with generators to be installed as a single unit. Accordingly, the power output from a single device will be relatively low and each device must be quite complex. Aligning the devices into a tidal fence increases efficiency by disallowing the pass of energy contained within a flow of a fluid around the sides of a single device, since these sides are also obscured by an adjacent device. As the tidal fence does not require a barrage but has the same high occupied cross-sectional efficiency as one, it represents an improvement thereover. Tos y dolor de espalda lado izquierdo . The device also does not require any barrage.

Of course, any flow of fluid will inherently be turbulent and will include many different components. This allows energy to be generated both when a tide is coming in and when a tide is going out. In tidal situations this may be represented by the tide coming in or going out.

In particular, the plane may pass through a centre line of each of the supports. The fast-moving turbine blades may also suffer from cavitation phenomenon, which can gradually abrade the turbine blades. The one or more projections may be a plurality of projections. The energy transfer device may comprise a first generator attached to the first rotor. When looking along the rotor 14 according to Figure 9 it can be seen how these generated accelerations are relevant to the present invention. The present invention includes counterbalancing arms on the rotors 14. In other embodiments, the number of turns on the helix could be selected in order to counterbalance the device 100. For example. As each fin 16 is rotatable in this manner, the device 100 is reversible. Therefore, significant energy is allowed to pass by the turbine without being captured. The flow direction referenced above refers to the general direction which the entire fluid flow can be characterised by.
