Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND ASSOCIATED METHODS TO GENERATE USEABLE ENERGY
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS POUR GÉNÉRER UNE ÉNERGIE UTILISABLE
Abstract
(EN)
The present disclosure relates to an apparatus and associated methods for generating energy by capturing and taking benefit of the energy generated by any quantity of air surfacing inside water. The apparatus includes a frame structure (102) to which is rotatably mounted an upper drive wheel (104), a lower wheel (106), and a vertical fluid column container (108). An endless chain (110) of gas capsule elements (112) is mounted on the upper and lower wheels (106, 108). This endless chain (110) passes vertically up into and through the fluid column container (108) through a seal port (118) in the bottom of the container (108). As the endless chain (110) of gas capsule elements (102) passes vertically through the fluid (109) in the container (108), fluid pressure on the elements (110) due to the height of the column of fluid in the container (108) produces a net bouyant force upward on the elements (112), causing them to rise, generating kinetic energy that turns the wheels (106,108).

La présente invention porte sur un appareil et sur des procédés associés pour générer de l'énergie par capture et exploitation de l'énergie générée par une quelconque quantité d'air au-dessus d'une eau intérieure. L'appareil comprend une structure de cadre sur laquelle est montée à rotation une roue motrice supérieure, une roue inférieure et un conteneur en colonne pour fluide vertical. Une chaîne sans fin d'éléments de capsule de gaz est montée sur les roues supérieure et inférieure. Cette chaîne sans fin passe verticalement dans et à travers le conteneur en colonne pour fluide à travers un orifice d'étanchéité dans la partie inférieure du conteneur. A mesure que la chaîne sans fin d'éléments de capsule de gaz passe verticalement à travers le flux dans le conteneur, la pression de fluide sur les éléments due à la hauteur de la colonne de fluide dans le conteneur produit une force de flottabilité nette dirigée vers le haut sur les éléments, les amenant à se soulever, générant de l'énergie cinétique qui fait tourner les roues.
