Title (EN) AIR-DRIVEN GENERATOR
(FR) GÉNÉRATEUR ENTRAÎNÉ PAR AIR
Abstract:
(EN) An air-driven generator (10) for generating electric power from movement of a working fluid. Upper ends of buoyancy conduits (14A-14D) are in fluidic communication with an upper end of a gravitational distribution conduit (12), and a lower end of the gravitational distribution conduit (12) is in fluidic communication with lower ends of the buoyancy conduits (14A-14D). An air injection system (24A-24D) injects air into the buoyancy conduits (14A-14D). A closed fluid loop is formed with working fluid flowing from the gravitational distribution conduit (12) driving a fluid turbine system (18A-18D) that is interposed between the lower ends of the gravitational distribution conduit (12) and the buoyancy conduits (14A-14D). Flow of working fluid can be induced by an injection of air into working fluid disposed in the buoyancy conduits (14A-14D) to achieve a generation of power by actuation of the fluid turbine system (18A-18D). An upper chamber (16) can remove entrained air. A Rankin Cycle Generator can receive and be actuated by exhausted air.
(FR) L'invention concerne un générateur entraîné par air (10) permettant de générer de l'énergie électrique à partir du mouvement d'un fluide de travail. Des extrémités supérieures de conduits de flottabilité (14A-14D) sont en communication fluidique avec une extrémité supérieure d'un conduit de distribution gravitationnelle (12), et une extrémité inférieure du conduit de distribution gravitationnelle (12) est en communication fluidique avec les extrémités inférieures des conduits de flottabilité (14A-14D). Un système d'injection d'air (24A-24D) injecte de l'air dans les conduits de flottabilité (14A-14D). Une boucle de fluide fermée est formée avec un fluide de travail s'écoulant à partir du conduit de distribution gravitationnelle (12) entraînant un système de turbine à fluide (18A-18D) qui est interposé entre les extrémités inférieures du conduit de distribution gravitationnelle (12) et les conduits de flottabilité (14A-14D). L'écoulement de fluide de travail peut être induit par une injection d'air dans un fluide de travail disposé dans les conduits de flottabilité (14A-14D) pour obtenir une génération d'énergie par actionnement du système de turbine à fluide (18A-18D). Une chambre supérieure (16) peut éliminer l'air entraîné. Un générateur de cycle de Rankine peut recevoir de l'air évacué et être actionné par celui-ci.
