Title
(EN) SYSTEM FOR GENERATING ELECTRICITY FROM FLUID CURRENTS
(FR) Système pour générer de l'électricité à partir de courants dE fluide
Abstract
(EN)
A system for generating electricity from fluid currents having one or more trolleys (2) that move along a closed-loop track (1) as a result of the action of fluid currents on one or more blades (11) attached to each trolley (2). Spacing between trolleys (2) is preferably maintained by a spacing ring (13) to which the trolleys (2) are attached. Optionally, one or more blades (11) may be attached to the spacing ring (13). The trolleys (2) are supported and guided either by wheels (4) or magnetic levitation (5). Electrical energy is preferably created by the movement of magnets (14) in an electrical ring (15) attached to the trolleys (2) with respect to a conductor (16) connected to the track (1).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système pour générer de l'électricité à partir de courants de fluide ayant un ou plusieurs chariots (2) se déplaçant le long d'une voie en boucle fermée (1) suite à l'action de courants de fluide sur une ou plusieurs pales (11) attachées à chaque chariot (2). L'espacement entre les chariots (2) est maintenu de préférence par un anneau d'espacement (13) auquel les chariots (2) sont attachés. Éventuellement, une ou plusieurs pales (11) peuvent être attachées à l'anneau d'espacement (13). Les chariots (2) sont soutenus et guidés par des roues (4) ou par lévitation magnétique (5). L'énergie électrique est créée de préférence par le mouvement d'aimants (14) dans un anneau électrique (15) attachés aux chariots (2) par rapport à un conducteur (16) relié à la voie (1).
