Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR GUIDING A VERTICAL SHAFT OF A ROTARY MACHINE, AND POWER-CONVERSION EQUIPMENT INCLUDING SUCH A SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE GUIDAGE D'UN ARBRE VERTICAL DE MACHINE TOURNANTE ET INSTALLATION DE CONVERSION D'ENERGIE INCORPORANT UN TEL SYSTEME
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to an adjustable system (150) for guiding the rotation of a shaft about a vertical axis, including skids (104), each of which is provided with a surface (1042) for forming a bearing with the shaft and, for each skid, a shim (106) provided with a cam surface (1062), the outline of which, in a plane that is radial relative to the vertical axis of rotation, is inclined (α) relative to said axis. Each skid (104) directly engages, via a portion (1046) of the outer radial surface (1044) thereof, with the cam surface (1062) of the shim (106). Equipment for converting hydraulic power into electrical power according to the invention includes a wheel that is rotatably secured to a shaft guided by such an adjustable system (150).
(FR)Ce système (150) réglable de guidage d'un arbre, en rotation autour d'un axe vertical, comprend des patins (104) pourvus chacun d'une surface (1042) destinée à former un palier avec l'arbre et, pour chaque patin, une cale (106) pourvue d'une surface de came (1062) dont la trace, dans un plan radial par rapport à l'axe vertical de rotation, est inclinée (α) par rapport à cet axe. Chaque patin (104) est en appui direct, par une portion (1046) de sa face radiale externe (1044), contre la surface de came (1062) de la cale (106). Une installation de conversion d'énergie hydraulique en énergie électrique selon l'invention comprend une roue solidaire en rotation d'un arbre guidé par un tel système réglable (150).
