 Le but de l'invention est de fournir un système de fourniture d'énergie de conception simple et robuste, fonctionnant de manière autonome et ne demandant pratiquement pas d'entretien, destiné en particulier à des zones isolées, ne disposant pas d'une main-d'oeuvre qualifiée suffisante. The purpose of the invention to provide a system of providing simple and robust energy, functionally autonomous and virtually no-maintenance, in particular for remote areas, do not have a hand qualified -d'oeuvre sufficient. 



   Plus particulièrement, l'invention concerne un tel système actionné par une éolienne, dans lequel l'énergie du vent est transformée en énergie utilisable par des machines, et facilement stockable. More particularly, the invention relates to such a system operated by a wind turbine, wherein the wind energy is converted into usable energy by machines, and easily stored. 



   Dans ce domaine, il est connu d'utiliser l'énergie du vent pour produire de l'électricité qui alimente ensuite, soit le réseau local, soit encore un ou plusieurs moteurs. In this area, it is known to use wind energy to generate electricity which is then fed either the local network or even one or more engines. 



    Un inconvénient de ce système est le problème du stockage de l'énergie ainsi produite, pour permettre d'établir un tampon entre l'installation de production et l'unité de consommation, ledit tampon accumulant de l'énergie lorsque la production dépasse la demande, et la restituant lorsque la demande dépasse la production. A disadvantage of this system is the problem of storing the energy thus produced, to allow to establish a buffer between the production facility and the consumer unit, said storing energy buffer when the output exceeds demand and returning it when demand exceeds production. 



    Selon l'invention on se propose de résoudre ce problème en fournissant un nouveau système de production d'énergie du type ci-dessus, dans lequel une éolienne actionne directement un compresseur d'air monté sur son axe, ledit compresseur alimentant en air comprimé l'installation consommatrice d'énergie, tandis qu'un réservoir de stockage est prévu dans le système, pour respectivement absorber la production d'air comprimé en excès, ou compléter la production lorsque la consommation la dépasse. According to the invention proposes to solve this problem by providing a new system of production energy of the above type, wherein a wind turbine directly actuates an air compressor mounted on its axis, the said compressor supplying the compressed air 'energy consuming installation, while a storage tank is provided in the system, for respectively absorb the production of compressed air in excess, or improve the production when the consumption exceeds the. 



    Un objet de l'invention est donc de fournir un système de transformation de l'énergie du vent en énergie utilisable par des machines, caractérisé en ce qu'il comprend une éolienne montée sur un mat, de manière à pouvoir pivoter autour d'un axe vertical, constituée d'une tête pivotante portant des pales, reliée à un compresseur rotatif, à air, fixé audit mat, et d'un moyen An object of the invention is therefore to provide an energy conversion system for wind energy usable by machines, characterized in that it comprises a wind turbine mounted on a mat, so as to be pivotable about a vertical axis, consisting of a pivoting head carrying blades, connected to a rotary compressor, air, fixed to said mat, and means 

  <Desc/Clms Page number 2> <Desc / CRUD Page number 2> 

  d'accumulation de l'air comprimé fourni par le compresseur. accumulating the compressed air supplied by the compressor. 



    Selon une autre caractéristique de l'invention, le moyen d'accumulation de l'air comprimé est un réservoir indépendant du mat, et le système comprend encore un conduit pneumatique flexible reliant le compresseur au réservoir, ce conduit pneumatique flexible reliant le compresseur au réservoir de manière lâche, de façon à permettre le pivotement d'orientation de l'éolienne par rapport au vent, de part et d'autre d'une position centrale correspondant au vent dominant. According to another characteristic of the invention, the accumulation means of the compressed air is an independent reservoir of the mat, and the system further comprises a flexible pneumatic conduit connecting the compressor to the reservoir, this flexible pneumatic conduit connecting the compressor to the reservoir loosely, so as to allow pivoting of the wind turbine orientation to the wind, on either side of a central position corresponding to the prevailing wind. 



    Selon une autre caractéristique de l'invention, le réservoir est placé en série dans le circuit pneumatique, entre le compresseur et l'unité consommatrice. According to another characteristic of the invention, the tank is placed in series in the pneumatic circuit between the compressor and the consumer unit. 



    Selon une autre caractéristique de l'invention, le réservoir est placé en dérivation dans le circuit pneumatique, entre le compresseur et l'unité consommatrice. According to another characteristic of the invention, the tank is placed in parallel in the pneumatic circuit between the compressor and the consumer unit. 



    D'autres aspects, caractéristiques et avantages de l'invention apparaîtront de la description détaillée qui suit, et du dessin annexé, sur lequel la figure unique est un se vue schématique d'un mode de réalisation de l'invention. Other aspects, features and advantages of the invention will become apparent from the following detailed description and the accompanying drawings, in which the single figure is a schematic view is an embodiment of the invention. 



    En se reportant au dessin, l'éolienne comprend une tête rotative 1 portant des pales 2, et montée à rotation autour d'une axe horizontal, par rapport à un carter 3. Referring to the drawing, the wind turbine comprises a rotatable head 1 carrying blades 2, and rotatably mounted around a horizontal axis relative to a casing 3. 



    La carter 3 est fixé à un mat de support 4 par l'intermédiaire d'un accouplement 5 permettant un pivotement autour d'un axe vertical. The casing 3 is fixed to a support mat 4 via a coupling 5 for pivoting about a vertical axis. 



    Un empennage 6 sert d'autre part à assurer, sous l'action du vent, le pivotement de l'éolienne par rapport au mat, par l'intermédiaire de l'accouplement de pivotement 5, l'orientation correcte de la tête 1, avec l'axe de rotation dans la direction du vent. A tail unit 6 serves on the other to ensure, under the action of wind, the pivoting of the wind relative to the mast, through the swivel coupling 5, the correct orientation of the head 1, with the axis of rotation in the direction of the wind. 



    Le carter 3 contient un compresseur à air-non représenté-et est pourvu des orifices adéquats d'alimentation du compresseur en air. The housing 3 contains a compressor to air-not shown-and is provided with suitable orifices air compressor power. 



    Dans le mode de réalisation préféré, le compresseur est relié par un conduit pneumatique flexible 7 à un In the preferred embodiment, the compressor is connected by a flexible tire 7 to a conduit

  réservoir de stockage 8 ainsi qu'à un réseau d'utilisation ou de consommation représenté par la conduite 9. storage tank 8 as well as a network of use or consumption represented by the line 9. 



   Il va de soi que le réservoir est pourvu d'une soupape de sécurité, pour éviter surpression dangereuse, ainsi que des vannes nécessaires pour pouvoir au besoin le débrancher du système, en vue d'un entretien ou d'une réparation. It is obvious that the reservoir is provided with a safety valve to prevent dangerous overpressure, and the necessary valves for power necessary unplug the system, for maintenance or repair. 



   En ce qui concerne le circuit pneumatique reliant le compresseur à l'utilisation, on peut prévoir le réservoir 8, soit en série entre le compresseur et l'unité consommatrice 9, soit encore en dérivation. As regards the pneumatic circuit connecting the compressor to the use, one can provide the reservoir 8, either in series between the compressor and the consumer unit 9, or by derivation. 



   La capacité du réservoir sera bien sûr adaptée aux besoins, en calculant par exemple l'autonomie minimale que l'on souhaite pour le système en cas d'absence totale de vent ; The tank capacity is of course adapted to the needs, by calculating for example the minimum autonomy which is desired for the system in case of total absence of wind;  la puissance du compresseur, et sa vitesse de rotation nominale, seront d'autre part adaptées aux caractéristiques de la tête 1. the compressor power, and its nominal rotation speed, will on the other hand adapted to the characteristics of the head 1.
