Title: A TURBINE SYSTEM FOR PRODUCING ELECTRICAL ENERGY AND METHOD THEREFOR
Abstract:
A system for producing electrical energy by converting the kinetic energy of fluids, comprising: a floatable base unit, a turbine system with its outer components positioned on top of said base unit, one or more barriers that are pivotally connected to said base unit, and barrier restricting elements that are located on top of said base unit and are suitable to restrict the rotation of said barriers around said pivot; wherein said barriers are located at a location around said turbine thereby permitting or blocking fluid from reaching the blades of said turbine, and wherein said barriers come into contact with said restricting elements as a result of a force applied on them by a fluid flow, and wherein the resulting position of the barriers prevents a counterflow effect on said turbine.
