Title
(EN) DEVICE, APPARATUS, AND METHOD FOR EXPLOITING THE ENERGY OF A STORM CENTRE
(FR) DISPOSITIF, APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ D’EXPLOITATION DE L’ÉNERGIE DU CENTRE D’UN ORAGE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a device for exploiting the energy of a storm centre. The device includes a hull structure (10) arranged to float in water, means (11) for converting the energy of a storm centre into electrical energy and in turn into a third form of energy, as well as stores for the third form of energy. The cross-section of the hull structure (10) is essentially circular and aerofoils (12) are arranged on the outer surface of the hull structure (10) to permit the hull structure (10) to be rotated around an essentially horizontal axis of rotation by the wind of the storm centre and thus to operate the means (11). In addition, the device is arranged to float freely and it includes control devices (22) and rotation devices (24) for the independent movement and control of the device. The invention also relates to an apparatus and method.

La présente invention concerne un dispositif permettant d’exploiter l’énergie du centre d’un orage. Le dispositif comprend une structure de coque (10) conçue pour flotter sur l’eau, des moyens (11) permettant de convertir l’énergie du centre d’un orage en énergie électrique et par la suite en une troisième forme d’énergie, ainsi que des stockages pour la troisième forme d’énergie. La coupe transversale de la structure de coque (10) est sensiblement circulaire et des ailerons stabilisateurs (12) sont disposés sur la surface externe de la structure de coque (10) pour permettre à cette dernière (10) d’être tournée sur un axe de rotation sensiblement horizontal par le vent du centre de l’orage et ainsi de faire fonctionner le moyen (11). En outre, le dispositif est conçu pour flotter librement et il comprend des dispositifs de commande (22) et des dispositifs de rotation (24) pour le mouvement indépendant et la commande du dispositif. L’invention concerne également un appareil et un procédé.
