A similar process may be used to rotate the displacement vessel upwards to cause the displacement vessel to surface or decrease its depth in the water. This process of using a barrage suffers from similar downsides as the tidal stream process and is limited to areas where a dam may be constructed such as tidal rivers, bays, and estuaries.
FIG. 7B shows an exemplary retrieval mode with the drag panel fully deployed. FIG. 7A shows an exemplary retrieval mode with the drag panel 721 retracted. The drag panel may include one or more non-flat sides configured to capture drag forces more effectively than a flat side. In an embodiment, the angle is greater than 0 degrees and less than or equal to 90 degrees. The gear box converts an input rotations per minute (RPM) into an output RPM that is different than (preferably greater than) the input RPM to increase the rotational energy transmitted to the generator. In an embodiment, the control mechanism(s) may include a traction winch. In an embodiment, decreasing the angle between the drag panel and the horizontal axis decreases the amount of drag force experienced by the drag panel. The displacement vessel 502 may include any suitable number of control cables, such as two cables or four cables, for example.

The electrical power may be transmitted via a wire 804 to an electrical grid such that it may be distributed to a consumer to be consumed. Similar to the displacement vessels 702 a-702 c shown in FIG. The first side 302 a and second side 302 b are shown as substantially flat, but may be adapted to have any suitable shape to enhance (or reduce) the capture of drag forces as will be described in more detail below. The rotation can be captured by an electrical power generator to generate electricity.

This rotation of the spindle can be transmitted to an electrical power generator to generate electricity. Each control cable 308 a and 308 b may also be coupled at another end to a/an adjustment/control mechanism (indicated generally as 320 a and 320 b) mounted on or within the displacement vessel 302, such as a motor and drum assembly or a winch, for example. The horizontally rotatable drag panel and horizontally rotatable drag panel with vertically rotatable sub-panels embodiments of the present invention may be applied to any of the below devices, systems, and assemblies of displacement vessels having drag panels, such as the displacement vessels detailed in FIGS. The drag panel 121 may extend along an entire width of the bottom surface of the displacement vessel or only a portion of the width. 1A-1C. Generally, an anchor cable 303 is connected to the drag panel 312 at both sides of the drag panel 312. The location along the drag panel 312 where the anchor cable 303 is connected may correspond to a center of mass of the displacement vessel 302, such that when a current causes the displacement vessel 302 to drift, the displacement vessel 302 will remain relatively stable in the water while maintaining a force on the anchor cable 303. The other end of the anchor cable 303 may be coupled to at least one directional converter and at least one generator as described above.

The drag panel 521 is rotatably coupled to the floatation devices 560 a and 560 b along the horizontal axis 554 such that it may freely rotate about the horizontal axis 554 from an active configuration (drag panel in the water) to a retracted configuration (drag panel out of the water). Dolor en la zona lumbar izquierda . This orientation capability may be achieved by a series of control cables attached to the displacement vessel-forming, e.g., a “bridle”-such that the displacement vessel may capture both directions of water flow. The method may further include rewinding the displacement vessel after rotating said drag panel. The method further includes generating electricity as the displacement vessel travels due to the flow of water. The displacement vessel may include multiple drag panels extending into the water from the bottom surface of the displacement vessel.
The control mechanism may be, for example, a motor, a winch, a hydraulic mechanism, a pneumatic mechanism, or any other suitable control mechanism as is known in the art. The control mechanism may be, for example, a motor, a winch, a hydraulic mechanism, or a pneumatic mechanism. The stationary location may be a bay/ocean floor, a barge, a pier, a platform, or any other suitable location.

The various features described or illustrated above, including any components thereof, may be combined or integrated in other systems. Additionally, or optionally, one or more control mechanisms located generally at the bottom of the displacement vessel may unwind control cables to effect a change in the pitch of the displacement vessel. Similar to ocean thermal power, wave power may cause noise or visual pollution if wave energy generators are located near a populated area. The displacement vessel includes a drag panel supported by one or more floatation devices configured to float at or near the surface of the water. A method of generating electricity using the flow of water due to tidal action may include releasing a displacement vessel having a drag panel rotatable about a horizontal axis of the displacement vessel, wherein the drag panel extends at an angle from a surface of the water. Como curar el dolor de rodilla . The rewind assembly may include a detachable coupling so that the rewind assembly is selectively coupled to the drum 213. In this case, the detachable coupling will be connected to the drum 213 during rewinding and can be detached while the displacement vessel is generating electricity.
FIGS. 5A-5C show an exemplary displacement vessel 502 having a horizontally rotatable drag panel 521. The displacement vessel 502 includes floatation devices 560 a and 560 b connected by transverse members 556 a and 556 b to create a frame from which to hold the drag panel 521 as the displacement vessel floats in the water. In FIG. 6C, the drag panel 621 is fully retracted by the control mechanisms 620 a and 620 b such that the drag panel 621 is horizontal and substantially out of the water. Those skilled in the art will hereby also recognize that a single motor/drum or winch can be used with the cables mounted in opposite directions and that as the drum/winch turns, one cable is unwound and the other cable is wound. In particular, directional converter 209 includes a rotatable drum 213 fixed on an axle 215. An anchor cable may be coupled to the rotatable drum such that it may be wound about or unwound from the drum 213. A drive gear 212 is also fixed on the same axle 215 as the rotatable drum 213. Drive gear 212 is connected to a gearing mechanism 214 by a chain, for example, and gearing mechanism 214 includes a plurality of gears 214 a-214 c.

In an example, the sides of the drag panel may include a parabolic shape, a concave shape, or a lofted cut. In this instance, one displacement vessel 802 is coupled to a plurality of anchor cables 803 a-803 f and each anchor cable is coupled to a respective directional converter 809 a-809 f that is fixed at a stationary location 806. As an example, the stationary location 806 may be land, a barge, a pier, a platform in the ocean anchored to the ocean floor, or the ocean floor. Dolor de brazo y espalda . In FIG. 6B, the drag panel 621 is partially retracted by control mechanisms 620 a and 620 b. The bridle-or series of control cables-may include any suitable number of control cables and each control cable may be connected to the displacement vessel at a connection point. The drag panel 521 extends from the displacement vessel 502 in a generally downwards direction (into the water) in order to capture drag forces caused by the flow of water due to tidal action or other currents.
