20688 results about "Turbine" patented technology

A turbine (from the Latin turbo, a vortex, related to the Greek τύρβη, tyrbē, meaning "turbulence") is a rotary mechanical device that extracts energy from a fluid flow and converts it into useful work. The work produced by a turbine can be used for generating electrical power when combined with a generator. A turbine is a turbomachine with at least one moving part called a rotor assembly, which is a shaft or drum with blades attached. Moving fluid acts on the blades so that they move and impart rotational energy to the rotor. Early turbine examples are windmills and waterwheels.

System, method and computer program product for enhancing commercial value of electrical power produced from a renewable energy power production facility

A method, system and computer program product enhance the commercial value of electrical power produced from a wind turbine production facility. Features include the use of a premier power conversion device that provides an alternative source of power for supplementing an output power of the wind turbine generation facility when lull periods for wind speed appear. The invention includes a communications infrastructure and coordination mechanism for establishing a relationship with another power production facility such that when excess electrical power is produced by the wind turbine facility, the excess may be provided to the power grid while the other energy production facility cuts back on its output production by a corresponding amount. A tracking mechanism keeps track of the amount of potential energy that was not expended at the other facility and places this amount in a virtual energy storage account, for the benefit of the wind turbine facility. When, the wind turbine power production facility experiences a shortfall in its power production output it may make a request to the other source of electric power, and request that an increase its power output on behalf of the wind turbine facility. This substitution of one power production facility for another is referred to herein as a virtual energy storage mechanism. Furthermore, another feature of the present invention is the use of a renewal power exchange mechanism that creates a market for trading renewable units of power, which have been converted into “premier power” and/or “guaranteed” by secondary sources of power source to provide a reliable source of power to the power grid as required by contract.

Air power engine assembly

The invention relates to an air-powered engine assembly, which comprises an air tank, an air valve, an air distributor, an intake pipe, camshafts, an intake duct, an exhaust control device, air cylinders, pistons, crankshafts, couplers, clutches, automatic gearboxes and differentials connected with the outside. The assembly is characterized in that the air valve, a constant pressure chamber and a pressure controller are arranged between the air tank and the air distributor; the air distributor is connected with a plurality of air cylinders on an air cylinder gasket; each air cylinder is connected with an exhaust chamber through an exhaust manifold; the exhaust chamber is provided with a turbine generator which is connected with a storage batter; the air cylinders are provided with the camshafts for controlling the air intake and exhaust of the air cylinders; the air cylinders are provided inside with the pistons for driving the crankshafts to rotate; the camshafts and the crankshafts are connected by chains; and the crankshafts are connected with the differentials through the couplers, the clutches and the gearboxes in turn. Therefore, doing work through air compression rather than fuel, the air-powered engine assembly has the advantages of avoiding waste gas discharge and air pollution, along with reliable operation, convenient operation, economical efficiency, practicality and so on. In addition, due to recycle of the waste gas for power generation, the air-powered engine assembly saves energy and reduces costs.
