US7946113B1 – Ocean Wave Electricity Generator Apparatus – Google Patents

It is estimated that between 30 and 50 meters of wave would be needed to run a 1-megawatt generator using this design. Tethering cables 27 enter the hydraulic pump boom assembly through the bellows 28 and threads between two cable guide rollers 36 before attaching to the weighted slide. The cable spool 8 is rotated as hydraulic fluid is pumped through the hydraulic lines 4 into a hydraulic rotator pump 9. Fluid is then pumped to a reservoir 10 for future use. This will allow the spool to free spin and the previously pictured weight will descend rapidly down the silo. FIG. 4 shows the process by which the cable spool 8 releases from the cable spool axle 16 once the previously pictured weight reaches the top of the silo. Other embodiments of this invention would be that the constant energy output could be used to operate a water or fluid pump, run a piece of machinery, move objects from one place to another by way of a conveyor or other apparatus, or any other operation which requires a consistent rotational output.

Feeling The apparatus will be designed to have another weight fall and speed up the flywheel before this happens under usual conditions. Because of the nature of the continuously variable transmission pictured earlier, the weights will arrive at the bottom of the silos at a slow speed while the flywheel rotates rapidly. The weight actually reaches the bottom of the silo at a slow speed. Upon reaching the bottom of the silo, trigger mechanism 17 will re-lock the cable spool release clutch 15, and the cable will begin to wind again and the weight will be lifted in the silo. A spring shock 26 is placed at the bottom of each silo to soften the landing of each weight. Each buoy would be tethered to a long linear hydraulic pump assembly secured in the ocean floor (FIGS.

To compensate for tides, the slide is extra long. The expectation would be that the flywheel would spin at 1500 RPM. The idea is that both the vertical and the horizontal components of ocean waves would cause movement in the buoy (circle inset, FIG. If the constant velocity of the constant velocity transmission is 450 RPM, this would be sufficient to turn a 16 field 750 kw to 1 mw generator. This continues until the flywheel slows down to 450 RPM. If the flywheel slows down to below 450 RPM, a clutch will release the generator and the flywheel will free spin. As the flywheel slows down, the gear ratio increases in the constant velocity transmission. Prostatitis dolor lumbar . This slows down the weight as it descends in the silo. FIG. 6 is the side view of cable drum assembly 6. This shows the plurality of cables 12, which each attach to a separate weight not pictured.

FIG. 7 is the side view of the drive axle and generator assembly showing the weight cables 12 wrapping around the drive members 20 resting on the drive axle and generator shaft 18. The shaft enters the continuously variable transmission 21. This transmission then rotates the flywheel 22 at a very rapid rate thus storing the kinetic energy.

OBJECTS AND ADVANTAGES The Ocean wave electricity generator apparatus houses its components underground, and embedded in the ocean floor a few hundred feet from shore. DRAWINGS FIG. 1 is a top view of the complete apparatus showing an array of buoys 2 located a pre-determined distance off shore 7 preferably at the location where waves begin to crest. FIG. 3 is an end view of the cable spool drum assembly 6 and how it works with the drive axle and generator assembly 5. As the weight cable 5 winds around the cable spool, it is threaded around the drive axle and generator assembly.

The cable attached to the weight then rotates a series of transmissions and flywheels, which turn a generator at a constant and controlled speed, so as to produce grid-ready electric power identical to the electricity that coal or natural gas generators produce. Dolor lumbar que no se quita . The output shaft is connected to a flywheel 22 of substantial weight and diameter which will be determined with engineering (FIG. Connected to this drum are spools of cable. At this point, the constant velocity transmission holds a 1:1 ratio. The flywheel turns the input shaft of a constant velocity gear reducing transmission 23 also designed by a company expert at designing such things (FIG. The cable guide rollers are mounted on mounts which double as slide track stops 35. These stops prevent the weighted slide from sliding off the end of slide track 33 should the waves become excessively large.

Some inventions must be applied in arrays of over vast amounts of ocean, which could cause large unsightly patches in the ocean, and can even disrupt or harm marine life. The angle of placement of the hydraulic pump assembly in the ocean floor may differ from that which is pictured.

The cables are attached to weights 13 which rise up and down in silos 14 dug in the earth (FIGS. Each passing wave on the array would move the drum enough to lift all the weights 2 to 3 feet from their previous positions. Each silo is 150 to 200 feet deep, but this also may be changed as engineering dictates. This will be converted to 7,000 to 10,000 lbs. The trigger mechanism re-engages the spool to the drum and the weight will start to be lifted back up the silo. Dolor de higado espalda . This forces hydraulic fluid out of a hydraulic line 31 and sucks in new fluid through hydraulic line 30. As the slide moves back down, the ramrod seal breaks and allows the new fluid to pass into the chamber to be pumped out with the next wave.

BACKGROUND OF INVENTION This invention describes a method of capturing the energy contained in the vertical and horizontal motion of ocean waves and converting said energy into electricity for residential and commercial use. This requires complicated, expensive and inefficient inverters and electronic controllers to transform the energy into a useable form. Expensive and dangerous electrically charged cables must be strung, and the generators can interrupt shipping and recreational areas.

The cables are threaded around a drive member 20 on a drive axle and generator assembly (FIGS. SUMMARY The Ocean wave electricity generator apparatus is an array of buoys placed a few hundred feet from shore, in the shallow ocean where the waves begin to break. Title: Ocean wave electricity generator apparatus.

Each time a weight arrives at the top of a silo, it is released by above-mentioned means, and allowed to descend down the silo to turn the generator by above-mentioned means. The number of buoys in the array would depend on need to operate the generator. The pontoon-style buoys 2 would be placed sideways and horizontally so that the waves would hit the broad sides of the buoys. Each buoy is tethered to a linear hydraulic pump that pumps hydraulic fluid to a main rotating drum each time a wave strikes the buoy. The hydraulic rotator pump rotates the cable spool and drum so as to wind the weight cable 12 onto the spool. Once the weight reaches the top, trigger mechanism 17 releases the clutch 15 and causes the spool to disengage from the axle. Support rollers 11 support the weight of the cable spool drum.

As the cable winds up the weight is lifted up within a silo 14 created to house the weight. A weight of substantial mass 13 is attached to the end of the cable. 36 Cable guide rollers. At low tide the bellows 28 are mostly contracted and the weighted track operates on the lower half of the slide track previously pictured. At high tide the bellows 28 are mostly extended and the weighted track operates on the upper half of the slide track previously pictured. FIG. 12 shows how the hydraulic pump assembly 3 is mounted in the ocean floor 38 with respect to the ocean surface and waves 37 at high tide. FIG. 11 shows how the hydraulic pump assembly 3 is mounted in the ocean floor 38 with respect to the ocean surface and waves 37 at low tide. During low tide, the slide moves along the lower part of the slide (FIG.
