||PCT/US2013/071739||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||MEHTA, Krunal, Kanubhai|
One example of a nutating fluid-mechanical energy converter includes a stator and a rotor. The stator includes an outer cylinder having a longitudinal passage (101) and an inner guide cylinder disposed longitudinally within the outer cylinder. The inner guide cylinder and outer cylinder are concentric and define an annulus for fluid flow. A longitudinal guide is attached to an outer surface of the inner guide cylinder and extending outwardly toward an inner surface of the outer cylinder. The rotor is positioned in the annulus to be eccentric relative to the outer cylinder. The rotor has a sidewall with a guide opening to receive the longitudinal guide. Fluid flowing through the annulus imparts a torque on the rotor causing the rotor to nutate within the annulus. The nutational motion of the rotor can be converted into a rotational motion using a suitable rotary output device.

The present invention relates to improvements to the "In-situ directed gravitational force generator" of application PCT/MX2012/000025; the improvements relate to 5 (five) mechanisms and solids designed for improving the performance thereof. The generator combines the strong forces of electromagnets with the physical properties of the masses of flywheels when these have a high kinetic energy content, and this concatenation means that the kinetic energy contained in the flywheels is projected linearly and directed to the outside of the device according to the invention; this gives rise to a series of impulses of strong forces directed to the outside of the device, and the sum of the impulses - per unit of time - of these forces is converted into a resultant of external force actuated in situ by the device according to the invention; in the interior, the electromagnets act at the distance which is appropriate to achieve the efficiency thereof, which means that the action of internal and external forces of the device will be strong and will not decay with movements of the device according to the invention. The force obtained is applied to a turbine for generating electric power, and also for propelling terrestrial, rail, maritime, air and aerospace craft, with aircraft no longer requiring lift from the air in order to fly and the functioning thereof requires no raw material, is economical, and utilizes an inexhaustible non-polluting and non-hazardous energy resource. In this invention, all the inertial physical capabilities of the mass of common material are utilized and, in order to understand how the energy-conservation principle is complied with, it is hereby stated that the energy utilized is that originating from beyond the finite physical frontiers of the common material, which is the same material from which the device according to the invention is constructed; this energy is that which constantly affects the common material, is that which allows the existence thereof and confers thereon the physical and chemical properties that same possesses, and these properties are already known to science. The special features of the improved device can be found in the 16 (sixteen) figures and in the 97 (ninety-seven) descriptions, which explain the way in which the mechanisms and materials thereof and the basic products necessary for the manufacture and operation thereof function.

||PCT/CR2014/000004||TRIPLEEE POWER SOURCE (COSTA RICA), S.A.||WILLOUGHBY, Billy Dennis|
The invention relates to an apparatus having a system for transforming buoyant force into the movement of a shaft submerged in water. The present invention is based on a mechanical, hydraulic and electrical configuration that uses air which, by means of the buoyancy thereof, drives a turbine runner. The runner is mounted inside a tank filled with water, which has a higher specific gravity than air; in this way, air is used to generate the rotation of the runner in one direction or another, depending on the configuration of the vanes. An output shaft is operationally connected to the runner, which is connected to a gearbox (step-down gear / step-up gear) or to other devices in which rotation power is needed. In said invention, the buoyant force properties of air in water are combined and used in order to produce rotation power and thus energy.
