A hydroelectricity and compressed-air power plant system includes a first fill pool, a plurality of internal fill tanks, an external fill tank, a wave channel, a plurality of air-generator units, a second fill pool, at least one air storage tank, and at least one generator system. The first fill pool is selectively in fluid communication with the external fill tank through the plurality of internal fill tanks while the external fill tank is selectively in fluid communication with the second fill pool through the wave channel. The second fill pool is selectively in fluid communication with the first fill pool through the at least one generator system so that a set amount of water can be circulated within the power plant system as it generates compressed-air from the plurality of air-generator units and electricity from the at least one generator system.

F03B 3/04
14898657Seamus Dominic GARVEYSeamus Dominic GARVEY

A system suitable for extracting power directly from the main shafts of slow-moving mechanical systems. The system has a closed gas circuit having a lower-pressure (LP) side and a higher-pressure (HP) side. The LP side is at a pressure substantially greater than atmospheric pressure. The system includes primary compressors coupled to the wind turbines, thermal stores coupled to heat-exchangers on both the LP and HP sides of the closed gas circuit, a secondary motor-compressor set and an expander-generator set. The system allows some degree of independence between the input power resource and the output power. When substantial wind power is present and the demand for electrical power is weak, this system can export a fraction of the energy captured and store the rest. When the wind resource is low, the system can export more power than is being collected by drawing energy from the thermal stores.

A generator for converting mechanical energy or hydropower or wind energy into electrical energy is disclosed. The generator includes a first member and a second member in contact with the first member to generate triboelectric charges. The second member rolls against the first member to generate a flow of electrons between two electrodes. Another embodiment of the generator includes two electrodes, and a member in contact with the two electrodes to generate triboelectric charges. The member rolls against the electrodes to generate a flow of electrons between the two electrodes.
