Title: DEVICE AND TECHNIQUE FOR GENERATING POWER FROM MOVING WATER
Abstract:
A water wheel turbine for generating power from a water current in a body of water, comprising multiple water wheels. The wheels have paddles, which have wings that channel the water current to a successive row of paddles on an adjacent wheel. The wings of the waterwheels work as self-barrier and director of the water current, reducing turbulence flow within the device. The gaps between the wings with the adjacent rear paddle do not create a significant resistance in the water current in front of the device compared with other waterwheel turbines. The device may operate in a body of water where it can be fixed or floating over a flume rigid foundation or over barrage foundation.
