WO/2015/042346 OCEAN WAVE ENERGY ABSORBING KITE SYSTEM AND METHOD||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/US2014/056454||BEIN, Thomas, W.||BEIN, Thomas, W.|
An ocean wave energy absorbing kite system 200 captures an ocean wave's kinetic energy as a force on a submerged, reciprocating panel 202 that drives the panel back and forth in an oscillating motion. The force applied to the panel is transmitted to a power generator 244 through opposed flexible ropes or lines 214, 224 loaded in tension. Potential energy is captured from the wave as a vertical force when a buoyant volume attached to the energy absorbing panel or kite member 202 rises on a passing ocean wave's peak, and transmits the force through flexible ropes or lines in tension to a power generator. Optionally, the shape of the panel is configurable to limit or restrict absorbed wave energy, thereby preventing damage from larger storm-generated waves.

||PCT/MA2014/000009||ES SAADY, Mohamed||ES SAADY, Mohamed|
This invention concerns an apparatus that produces electrical energy from the agitations that result from a plurality of exciters that can act directly on the weight of the apparatus that is sensitive to agitations or via receivers, such as vehicles, humans, animals, natural factors, etc. The exciters activate a heavy weight sensitive to agitations in order to produce a mechanical force that is exerted on the alternators via an accelerator of (the) axis or axes of (the) alternator(s). The receivers can act on the weight to be agitated or directly accelerate the alternators. The apparatus is formed from four essential parts A, B, C and D; part A contains the mobile elements sensitive to agitations; part B receives the mechanical force to accelerate the axis of the alternator; part C is the part that contains the alternator(s); part D is formed from one or a plurality of batteries.
WO/2015/037971 HYDRAULIC DEVICES FOR PRODUCING ENERGY USING MOLECULAR FORCES OF LIQUID MOLECULES||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/LV2014/000008||GUZENKO, Vladimir Grigorjevich||GUZENKO, Vladimir Grigorjevich|
The present invention proposes using the internal energy of molecules, or, more specifically, the Van der Waals forces of intermolecular interaction of a liquid boundary layer, in order to produce energy. Said forces are extremely small and act in a microcosm, on the scale of molecules interacting only with molecules of the closest surrounding environment, the forces acting, in different directions, directly upon neighboring molecules. Only those liquid molecules which share a boundary with another medium (in a different state of aggregation) transfer their pressure strictly along the normal. This characteristic serves as the foundation for the proposed devices, which make it possible to produce a cumulative effect from the differently-directed and very small forces of a microcosm as a result of the strict orientation of liquid molecules in space. The liquid in the proposed devices is used not only as a working mass, but also as a "fuel". In producing energy, the internal energy of the liquid is consumed.

The rotational buoyancy power generator, according to one embodiment of the present invention, comprises: a water tank part in which water is filled to a predetermined water level between a circular inner wall and a circular outer wall; a first rotation part which is positioned between the inner wall and the outer wall, has a circular shape to float on the water by buoyancy, and includes a plurality of blades formed on an outer surface thereof; a driving part which is accommodated inside the inner wall and rotates the first rotation part when a gear set rotated by a motor is engaged with an upper part of the first rotation part; a second rotation part of which a central body floats on the water up to a predetermined height inside the inner wall by buoyancy, and which includes a plurality of buoyancy branches having one end connected with the central body and the other end positioned between the first rotation part and the external wall, so as to float on the water by buoyancy; and a power generation part for generating the induced electromotive force when the second rotation part is rotated by the rotational power of the water according to the rotation of the first rotation part. Thus, a small-scale generation device capable of being utilized in a small space can be implemented. In addition, the amount of power generation can be increased by rotating a rotating body floating on the water by buoyancy using the small amount of power.

Mechanism for the generation of electric power using a falling heavy element indicated by reference sign "M", which is characterized in that use is made of the kinetic energy of a heavy element (7) or (7A) which, in free fall, is accelerated under gravity to confer, on a striker (12), a kinetic movement that is transmitted to a transmission arm (13) connected to a clutch (16) positioned above a spring (25); the heavy element (7) or (7A) can be captured and moved vertically upwards by means of a pneumatic actuator or mechanical mechanism mounted on a fixed base (2) which, for its part, vertically connects external guide rods (5), aligned with the internal guide rods (6), which serve to assist the fall of the heavy element (7) or (7A) on the cradle (8); for the purposes of capture and raising of the heavy element, use may be made of an electromagnet (4) connected to a movable base (3) supported vertically by a fixed base (1); in instances of high mass, the heavy element is connected to the rod of the actuator or to the mechanical lifting mechanism, these latter being responsible for raising same to the height at which release thereof takes place, it being unnecessary in such cases to capture the heavy element electromagnetically; the lower portion of the mechanism "M" includes, furthermore, a striker (12) that directly receives the movement arising from impact and is driven by the vertical transmission arm (13), by means of a guide structure (16) with pins (14) allowing the movement to be transmitted to a clutch (16) composed of an arm (17), a catch (18) and a catch base (19), which elements assist in the achievement of mechanical or binary torque on the rotor shaft (24), which, for its part, couples to a mass disc (27) which assists in preserving the slowly rotating inertial movement of the rotor shaft (24), with recourse to bearings (23), positioned on supports for the generation unit (26) as a whole, this movement being transmitted to a gearbox (21), by means of an elastic coupling (22), which accelerates same to actuate the electric generator (20); in order to guarantee lifting of the heavy element, use is made of a mechanical mechanism with a support structure (l), which allows the connection of all elements that give rise to the movement of the heavy element upwards by means of a (), commencing with the use of the motor () which provides the force up to the end of each ascending cycle or, finally, is automatically disconnected; this motor is connected to the reducer (..) by means of an elastic coupling () and a clutch (...) connected to a transmission gear (), which, for its part, is connected directly to a chain () and to a cable () that runs by means of pulleys (..), that pass the cable to the heavy element (7A) by means of arm () fixed to the base (32) where a guide ring (31 ) is secured.
