Title
(EN) HYDRAULIC ENERGY CONVERTER
(FR) CONVERTISSEUR D'ÉNERGIE HYDRAULIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A hydraulic energy converter comprising waterwheels, an axle, a gear box, a drive shaft, and a generator or other rotational energy converting device, where the axle and drive shaft are othogonal to each other. The waterwheels may be replaced by road wheels for towing and the gear box may be a locked differential.
(FR)
Convertisseur d'énergie hydraulique qui comprend des roues hydrauliques, un essieu, une boîte de vitesses, un arbre d'entraînement et un générateur ou autre dispositif rotatif de conversion d'énergie, l'essieu et l'arbre d'entraînement étant perpendiculaires l'un par rapport à l'autre. Les roues hydrauliques peuvent être remplacées par des roues porteuses adaptées au tractage dudit convertisseur et la boîte de vitesses peut être un différentiel bloqué.
