15170346Robert L. HuebnerRobert L. Huebner

A water driven electrical power generating system has a frame with a waterwheel carried within the frame in an upright manner having a plurality of water receiving elements for turning the waterwheel. A water discharge manifold is used to discharge water from a discharge end in alignment with the water receiving elements. A water collection reservoir disposed below the waterwheel for the collection of water which has been discharged from the manifold and received by the water receiving elements. A water pump is used to pump water from the reservoir through the water discharge manifold. The waterwheel has side plates with outwardly extending axle shafts which are used to drive an electrical generator as the wheel rotates.


2. 20160273512 COASTAL PROTECTION AND WAVE ENERGY GENERATION SYSTEMUS22.09.2016
F03B 13/14
15029739OCEANLINX LTD.Ali Mohammad Baghaei NANEHKARAN

This invention relates to a wave energy generator for a coastal protection system. The wave energy generator includes a base structure arranged in a body of water and configured to protect a portion of a coastline against incoming waves. The base structure has a foundation located on a floor of the body of water and a wall extending from the foundation to a point above a highest predicted height of the waves. At least one duct is associated with the base structure for receiving an oscillating water column from the body of water. The oscillating water column oscillates in response to wave action of the incoming waves and the duct forms part of an energy extraction system for capturing energy from the incoming waves.


3. 20160273513 HINGE SYSTEM FOR AN ARTICULATED WAVE ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMUS22.09.2016
F03B 13/18
15069353Murtech, Inc.Robert C. Murtha, JR.

A hinge system and method for an Articulated Wave Energy Conversion System (AWECS) that provides for hinge and piston pump displacements due to multi-axis forces in allowing adjacent barges of the AWECS to pivot with respect to one another due to wave motion. The hinge system uses a plurality of parallel hinges, and axle segments, coupled between adjacent barges wherein the hinges are coupled to upright trusses positioned transversely along facing edges of each barge. Hinge bracing includes lower V-shaped struts that act as lower stops when the barges pitch up and also include upper struts that act as upper stops when the barges pitch down. The pumps are positioned in parallel. The pumps have special couplings such as ball joint couplings that permit motions other than longitudinal pump/ram motions due to multi-axis forces generated by the wave motion and thus provide omni-directional stress relief to the pumps.

14975330Liquid Robotics, Inc.Roger G. Hine

This disclosure provides improved nautical craft that can travel and navigate on their own. A hybrid vessel is described that converts wave motion to locomotive thrust by mechanical means, and also converts wave motion to electrical power for storage in a battery. The electrical power can then be tapped to provide locomotive power during periods where wave motion is inadequate and during deployment. The electrical power can also be tapped to even out the undulating thrust that is created when locomotion of the vessel is powered by wave motion alone.

15034083NITTAN VALVE CO., LTD.Lee Tai-Hwan

[Problems to be solved] There is known means for converting the vibration energy of the body of a road vehicle to electrical energy, thereby improving the fuel efficiency of the vehicle but since these means cannot collect energy when an internal combustion engine is idling, they are not satisfactory as energy collecting means. Thus, it is a problem to be solved by the present invention to provide an internal combustion engine equipped with an electrical power generating member which can efficiently convert the vibration energy to electrical energy and can prevent spaces occupied by a piezoelectric element, rectifier and other power circuit components.

[Solution] The problem can be solved by an internal combustion engine of a road vehicle, which is an internal combustion engine equipped with an electrical power generating member, the electrical power generating member is provided in a passive member subjected to the motion of an actuating member constituting a component of the internal combustion engine and the electrical power generating member is constituted to generate electrical power in response to motion of the actuating member and store the generated electrical power in an electrical storage device.
