Title (EN) GENERATING ENERGY FROM FLUID EXPANSION
(FR) PRODUCTION D'ÉNERGIE À PARTIR DE LA DILATATION D'UN FLUIDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus includes an electric generator having a stator and a rotor. A first turbine wheel is coupled to a first end of the rotor to rotate at the same speed as the rotor. A second turbine wheel is coupled to a second end of the rotor opposite the first end, and configured to rotate at the same speed as the rotor. The first and second turbine wheels may rotate in response to expansion of a working fluid flowing from an inlet side to an outlet side of the turbine wheels.
(FR)L'appareil selon l'invention comprend un générateur électrique comportant un stator et un rotor. Une première roue de turbine est accouplée à la première extrémité du rotor pour tourner à la même vitesse que le rotor. Une seconde roue de turbine est accouplée à la seconde extrémité du rotor, du côté opposé à la première extrémité, et configurée pour tourner à la même vitesse que le rotor. Les première et seconde roues de turbine peuvent tourner en réaction à la dilatation d'un fluide de travail s'écoulant d'un côté entrée à un côté sortie des roues de turbine.
