Abstract
(EN)
An energy production system (Fig. 6) in which weighted hollow balls (22) circulate around the system rising buoyantly in a constant height column of water (23) in a main, upright guide part (10), being pushed by following balls out of the water column into a downwardly sloping upper guide part (12) from where they fall under gravity while being carried on an energy conversion wheel (17) to which the energy of the balls imparts rotational motion which is converted into a different form of energy via a drive belt connected to the wheel shaft (18). Balls fall from the wheel at its lowest point to be received in a lower guide part (11) sloping upwardly from the lower end of the main guide part (10), the weight of balls in the lower guide part successively forcing a ball into a column of water therein, balls submerged in the water in the lower guide part being controlled by valve means so that one ball at a time is allowed to pass into the main guide part, with the height of the water column therein being maintained constant.
