A common method in commercial use involves burning a combustible material, such as oil, natural gas or coal, to directly power a generator unit or to heat a fluid to produce steam to power a generator unit. Power varying mechanisms may be provided to vary a quantity of power taken by the paddle wheel from the flow of water. According to a first aspect of the present invention, electricity is produced for use by mankind from the energy in flowing water existing in many rivers, canals, sluices and creeks. Third gear 46 has a larger diametric measurement than the diametric measurement of generator gears 56 which provides for an increase in the RPM rate of generator gears 56 relative to third gear 46. Each chain drive assembly 20 provides for a first rotational conversion mechanism and a second rotational conversion mechanism to radically increase in the RPM rate of generator axle 54 of electricity generator 22 relative to the RPM rate of the paddle wheel.
For various reasons it may be desirable to selectively increase or decrease a depth of penetration of leading end paddle wheel 35 relative to flowing body of water 12. FIG. Those skilled in the art will appreciate that the conception, upon which this disclosure is based, may readily be utilized as a basis for the designing of other structures, methods and systems for carrying out the several purposes of the present invention. 7 depicts a fluid storage container 58 and a pumping assembly 60 positioned on floating platform 14. When it is desired to cause leading end paddle wheel 35 to move deeper into flowing body of water 12, pumping assembly 60 causes water to be transferred from flowing body of water 12 into fluid storage container 58, which changes a buoyancy of floating platform 14 thereby causing floating platform 14 to ride lower in flowing body of water 12. When it is desired to cause leading end paddle wheel 35 to move out of flowing body of water 12 pumping assembly 60 causes water to be transferred from fluid storage container 58 to be discharged into flowing body of water 12 which changes the buoyancy of floating platform 14 thereby causing floating platform 14 to ride higher in flowing body of water 12.

As such, it may be appreciated that there continues to be a need for a method of producing electricity which does not harm the environment nor consume natural resources. This latter example provides for an initial conversion of rotational speed when coupled with a member having a much smaller diametric measurement. In one embodiment of the present invention, a conversion will be provided for where the rotational speed of the paddle wheel is mechanically converted into a much higher rotational speed of an input member of the generator.
Due to the relative stability in the flow within flowing bodies of water, and the capabilities to adjust characteristics associated with electricity output to compensate for variations in flow rates, electricity production units having features of the present invention are ideally suited to produce consistent, reliable and inexpensive electricity. With respect to the above description then, it is to be realized that the optimum dimensional relationships for the parts of the invention, to include variations in size, material, shape, form, function and manner of operation, assembly and use, are deemed readily apparent and obvious to one skilled in the art, and all equivalent relationships to those illustrated in the drawings and described in the specification are intended to be encompassed by the present invention.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PRESENT INVENTION The particulars shown herein are by way of example and for purposes of illustrative discussion of the embodiments of the present invention only and are presented in the cause of providing what is believed to be the most useful and readily understood description of the principles and conceptual aspects of the present invention. Many methods are known in the art to transfer rotational movement from a first member to rotational movement of a second member and many of these methods may be utilized with the present invention. One advantage of the floating platform configuration involves centralized manufacture of units to occur at a location distinct from the intended installation locations.

The floating electricity production unit may further comprise a rotational speed conversion mechanism, and wherein the electricity generator further comprises a generator axle and wherein the rotational speed conversion mechanism provides for a conversion of each rotation of a respective paddle wheel into a multiplicity of rotations of the generator axle of the electricity generator. Another deficiency involves the space requirements for large-scale installations. A transfer mechanism will transfer the rotation of the paddle wheel from the paddle wheel to an electricity generator. This eliminates convenient relocation of the production capability from one location to another location. FIG. 4 is an elevational side view of select components of the electricity production unit depicted in FIG.
Another example would involve selectively varying a spacing distance of the paddles, or select paddles, relative to the central axis of the paddle wheel. Dolor lado derecho debajo de las costillas y espalda . FIG. 5 depicts a side view of one of the paddles 28. Paddle 28 has a periphery side 104 distal from central axis 34, not shown in this view, of paddle wheel 16. Periphery side 104 has a curvature 106 there along. While each paddle may be flat if desired, preferably there will exist a curvature at least in close proximity to the outer extent to enhance water trapping capabilities of the paddle. Enhancing mechanisms may be provided to enhance the flow or velocity of the water engaging the paddle wheel.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION In view of the foregoing disadvantages inherent in the known types of electricity production, a method has been devised of producing electricity from energy intrinsically contained within a flowing body of water. It is important, therefore, that the claims be regarded as including such equivalent constructions insofar as they do not depart from the spirit and scope of the present invention. FIG. 8 shows a water intensifier to intensify a flow of water relative to leading end paddle wheel 35 in the form of an inclined surface 72 positioned beneath surface 68 on the bed of the flowing body of water 12. Inclined surface 72 directs the flow of water to more aggressively engage paddle wheels 16 including leading end paddle wheel 35. Also, in FIG. This varying of the depth of penetration may involve either elevationally displacing the paddle wheel relative to the mounting surface of the paddle wheel or elevationally displacing the entire platform housing the paddle wheel relative to the surface of the body of water.

Yet another common method in commercial use involves harnessing the energy produced during movement of water from a first, elevationally high, position and a second, elevationally low, position as occurs in certain flowing bodies of water. Typically water is diverted from the headwater to run through conduits under pressure from the water above to turn turbines prior to being discharged downstream.. Dolor agudo de espalda alta
