Abstract

A novel method for producing hydropower from sea (ocean) . This method comprises a turbine-generator to produce electricity and a hydraulic press system to discharge the water to the water tank above the ground.

Description

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING:
It is a regular conventional hydropower plant . We can understand from the drawing how it works.
Fig-1 is the DRAWING for this novel method and F ig-2,3,4,5 6 etc small drawings are for domnnctratinn auroose only published to understand well about this novel method.
INVENTION BACKGROUND:
There have been many attempts to harness the energy of the sea for electrical generation. These attempts usually employ machinery and huge investment to produce electricity from sea. We need to find a solution to solve the power crisis before our natural resources like oil uranium and coal are completely depleted from earth .The background of my method is to solve the future world power crisis. In this method we can produce any amount of electricity due to the availability of sea water.
We can construct a plant within 6 months. No need to build expensive DAM and we save 50%
construction costs. We can apply this method for Pumped Storage hydro power plants (or lakes or ponds ot rivers) to produce electricity continuously 24 hours a day unlike present Pumped Storage plants operated during the peak hours only. We can build office buildings under the ground to protect against tsunami and cyclones .We can produce cheapest electricity in this method. We can use the cheap electricity produced in this novel method in desalination plants to produce cheap drinking water and water for agriculture purposes where there is a shortage .In my method the sea (or ocean) becomes the reservoir and we can tap billions and billions of MW electricity stored in the sea (ocean) in this method .This method of producing cheap electricity will solve the world's future power crisis forever until the world exists.

OCEAN OR SEA HYDRO POWER PLANT
( A NOVEL METHOD) The water from the sea (ocean) is pumped from the big tank to the water tank above the ground by hydraulic pistons attached to the small tanks which are connected to hydraulic pistons. The water from the water tank above the ground then flows down through a penstock to the turbine-generator, which turns turbine-generatoi to produce electricity and the spent water is discharged in the sea (ocean) as shown in the drawing.
We can easily understand how it works from the drawing. In this method hydraulic presses (system) are used to compress the water in the tanks and throw (discharge) it to the water tank above the ground through a pipe. There are two sets of tanks 1 and 2 identical tanks installed one after another.
Set-1 (ABCD) and Set-2 (EFGH) have 4 tanks each. All tanks are connected with the hydraulic presses which compress and throws the water to the ground above .The turbine's draft tube is connected to a big water tank from where water flows to the tanks Set-1 and Set -2.The big tank pipe also has 2 valves A and B. To start the operation now open the valves A and B
in order to flow the water to the tanks Set-1 and Set-2 .Once water is filled in the tanks Set-1 close the valve A. Now we compress the water in the tanks Set-1 and throw (discharge) it to the water tank above the ground.
Once the water is thrown out to the water tank above the ground go to the tanks Set-2 and now open the valve A to let the water flow to the tanks Set-1. Now close the valve B and compress the water in the tanks Set-2 to throw it to the water tank above the ground. Once water is thrown out from tanks Set-2, come to tanks Set-1 ,and close the valve A and open the valve B in order to flow the water to the tanks Set-2. Now the tanks in Set-1 are already filled with water and compress the water again to throw it to the water tank above the ground. REPEAT these operations again and again to discharge the water to the water tank above the ground to produce electricity continuously. For bigger hydro plants, several bigger hydraulic presses and tanks should be used to discharge the water quickly to the water tank above the ground to produce more electricity. In this method hydraulic presses are chosen to compress and discharge the water to the water tank above the ground because if we apply little force on the big piston (master piston) force exerts on small pistons which moves forward and compress the water in the small tanks and discharges it to the water tank above the ground as shown in the drawing. In this method we use hydraulic pressure only to throw the water to the water tank above the ground. We can keep all electricity produced in this method for our use. Due to corrosion problems of sea water the parts like penstock turbine- generator pipes tanks water compressor pistons all are made from corrosion free materials. In this method a general formula which is applicable to calculate the electricity produced is used . The formula is 10 (OR 8.5 OR 5.9 ) X
FLOW OF WATER IN CUBIC METERS/ SEC X HEAD IN METERS. We can apply this method for Pumped Storage hydro plants to produce electricity continuously 24 hours a day.

Claims

CLAIMS:
A hydroelectric system comprising 1) a main reservoir (sea or ocean ) . 2) a non corrosion penstock to bring the water to the turbine-generator. 3) a big water tank and a pipe connecting Set-1 and Set-2 small water tanks .The big water tank pipe has valves A and B to control flow of water to the small tanks Set-1 and Set-2 tanks. 4) Set-1 and Set-2 tanks and two hydraulic presses connected with the water compressor pistons inside the small tanks Set-1 and Set-2 to compress the water and to discharge it to the ground through a pipe (discharged back to the sea as shown in the drawing), 6) a general formula which is applicable to calculate the electricity produced in this method. The formula is 10 (or 8.5 OR 5.9) X FLOW OF WATER IN CUBIC METERS /SEC X HEAD IN METERS.
7) an underground below the seashore and an underground turbine-generator. 8) a pipe connecting the water tank to discharge the water above the ground. 9) a locomotive (diesel or electric) or hydraulic pistons or hydraulic presses or any other means to apply force on the water compressor small tank pistons.
