Title (EN) HYDROKINETIC TURBINE HAVING HELICAL TANKS
(FR) TURBINE HYDROCINÉTIQUE AYANT DES RÉSERVOIRS HÉLICOÏDAUX
Abstract:
(EN) A hydrokinetic energy system for producing electricity is provided. The system represents a hydrokinetic water turbine having a tubular body and an internal turbine that resides within a central pipe of the turbine. The tubular body is helix-like in shape and slowly rotates in a body of water in response to water currents. The tubular body includes two or more tanks of internal working fluid that is fluidically isolated from the body of water. Slow rotation of the turbine wheel produces a gravitational flow of internal working fluid through the tanks within the turbine. The gravitational flow of fluid turns the internal turbine at a high speed to generate electrical power. A method of generating electrical power using a hydrokinetic water turbine is also provided.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système d'énergie hydrocinétique pour la production d'électricité. Le système représente une turbine à eau hydrocinétique comportant un corps tubulaire et une turbine interne qui se trouve à l'intérieur d'un tuyau central de la turbine. Le corps tubulaire est de forme hélicoïdale et tourne lentement dans un corps d'eau en réponse à des courants d'eau. Le corps tubulaire comprend deux réservoirs ou plus de fluide de travail interne qui sont isolés de manière fluidique du corps d'eau. La rotation lente de la roue de turbine produit un écoulement gravitationnel de fluide de travail interne à travers les réservoirs à l'intérieur de la turbine. Le flux gravitationnel de fluide fait tourner la turbine interne à une vitesse élevée pour générer de l'énergie électrique. L'invention concerne également un procédé de production d'énergie électrique à l'aide d'une turbine à eau hydrocinétique.
