Hydroelectric Energy Production System in Water Currents without Environmental Impact and Not Needing a Hydraulic Dam
System consisting of a variable number of piles (2) driven into the channel or river bed, turbines or propellers (9), platform (4), electrical generator (3) and transmission system (5), which allows for taking advantage of the kinetic energy of a water current for the production of electric power, without needing to cause a water jump, thereby reducing the environmental impact in the above mentioned current, and without the need of constructing a hydraulic dam.Reducing the section of the water flow, will increase its speed. This increase in its kinetic energy will be favorable for the movement of turbines and the subsequent generation of electricity.A mechanism is designed to raise the system and withdraw it from the water current when necessary, in a simple way, either manually or automatically.
Versatile Solar Thermal System Of Hot Water Production Up To High Temperatures
Solar thermal installation consisting of a battery (1) of two or more solar panels (2) which may be flat or made up of vacuum pipes, recirculation pump for the heat-transfer fluid (4), valve system (3) and control system (6), featuring a wide range of operation for any available temperature of the heat-transfer fluid (from +40ºC up to +150ºC), as well as assuring either a constant flow of heat-transfer fluid, or a constant temperature, or both parameters simultaneously.The control system (6) will operate on the valve system (3), as well as on the speed of the recirculation pump (4) so as to assure the control of the above mentioned parameters.All installation components will meet standards to withstand temperatures up to 180ºC.
