||PCT/US2014/030543||PRILL, Robert S.||PRILL, Robert S.|
An Artificial Gravity Fueled Fluid Dynamic Energy Generator/Motor that initially uses external power to spin a partially submerged low drag fluid distributor rotor that uses centrifugal force to cause fluid to flow from the center of rotation, through a plurality of Euler contoured penstocks, in a true radial direction through a high "g" artificial gravity field, which dramatically increases the fluid's kinetic energy and releases available power, before it is guided out tangentially from the distributor via a plurality of nozzles symmetrically located at a small height just above the reservoir surface (near zero lift). As the frequency of the rotor is increased linearly the fuel Artificial Gravity increases exponentially, as does the fluid dynamic available power Pa. Turbine runners on the rotor assembly capture the available power, and a positive feedback mechanical transmission couples the captured rotational power to the I/O shaft in its initialized direction.

The invention is a wave energy device which optimizes energy conversion from waves with a stable submerged platform coupled to compliant chain of floats ("pods") which are connected to the platform by piston pumps. Wave action drives pumps to deliver pressurized water to a hydro turbine coupled to an electric generator for delivery of electric power to shore via a submarine cable. Alternatively, the pressurized water may be delivered to shore through pipes on the ocean floor, to generate electric power, also as input flow for reverse osmosis potable water production and for cooling applications.

A novel heat exchange device to provide sufficient amounts of heat within a manifold including a working fluid within heating coils to generate electricity through an external combustion steam engine and electrical generator is provided. Such a novel heat exchanger includes coils that surround a central heating compartment thereby exposing such coils to gradually increasing temperatures such that the working fluid is first vaporized and then is ultimately superheated to a "dry" steam upon the point of egress of the heat exchanger leading to the engine portion. In this manner, greater efficiency in heating of the working fluid is accomplished with all of the fluid converted to a gas under pressure to effectuate the necessary engine, etc., movement for energy production.
