Submerging turbines, which works on the principle of water pressure. Listed turbine enables the production of electricity without losing energy. The submerging turbine has great potential in the production of energy because linking pools in which the submerging turbines are placed in a series system of "connected vessels" to the accumulated pool in an infinite number, and if desired can be built on a new pool. On the drawing is shown a mini submerging turbine with a minimum number of segments and a minimum size of them. Increasing the number of bracket vessels with the vessels with air increases the power turbine and an only increase in the number of vessels with air is conditioned by the increase of the pool provided for submerging turbines on air with air.
||WO||WO/2014/062232 - HEAT-ACTUATED RELEASE MECHANISM||24.04.2014||
||PCT/US2013/034908||RAYTHEON COMPANY||KOEHLER, Frederick, B.|
A release mechanism passively releases a mechanically coupling as a result of a temperature rise. The release mechanism includes a breakable element, such as a shape memory alloy (SMA) element, that is configured to break when the element is heated to a predetermined temperature. The breakage of the breakable element releases a mechanical coupling, such as a coupling holding a lid onto a container. The release mechanism may be part of a handle or other device to close the container. The release mechanism may have a mechanical load on it prior to release, a load that in part passes through the breakable element. Most of the load may pass through one or more other members of the release mechanism, providing the force for separation after the release mechanism is triggered. The release mechanism may be used to provide a passive way of releasing a mechanical coupling in response to heating.

||PCT/EG2013/000026||ABO EL-ABAS, Mohamed Mohamed Mohamed||ABO EL-ABAS, Mohamed Mohamed Mohamed|
The invention relates to an innovative method that can be used to exploit the weight of water and its slow movement in order to generate electricity. The method consists in designing a rotor with five large blades that are secured to a driving shaft supported by two supports attached to concrete walls, such as to be submerged in the water and such that three quarters of the blades are immersed between two concrete partitions and a concrete quadrant placed downstream of same. When the water retained by the blades and the walls rises it pushes the blades forcefully in order to move forward, thereby rotating the blades on the shaft, accelerated by means of a gearbox. The resulting kinetic energy is converted into electricity using an electric generator, said conversion being performed at a low cost and using accessible means.
