Abstract

The weight storage plant is a system with scaffolding (1) for therein in the direction of fall with known lifting and lowering device (6) movable weight (2) for storing or generating electrical energy, characterized in that, with a three-phase induction machine (3 ) primarily using electricity from wind power (4) or photovoltaics, the potential energy of heavy mass (2) (eg stone, concrete) is increased by lifting, and by lowering the mass (2) under reverse use of the three-phase Induction machine (3) electricity for a network (5) is produced.

Description

  • For the different ones A variety of storage options has been developed. For the thermal Energy exist several possibilities with different liquids To store heat the predominantly for heating purposes is used. There is also one with the chemical energy wide range of storage options from the battery over the accumulator up to the organic fat. Mechanical energy in Form of flywheels becomes main in the transport sector and in the energy supply for bridging momentary bottlenecks used. These known memory forms all include one certain limitations in terms of their capacity for large-scale use. Only that Pumped storage power plant and the compressed air storage power plant are capable of significant To save energy. While the pumped storage power plants due to the lack of locations - the German energy suppliers can fall back on 40 pumped storage with 5500 megawatts - with a suitable altitude difference largely exhausted, compressed air appears as a universal energy storage currently as the most sustainable Shape. That the all-dominant energy storage oil once could become empty apparently is not complete yet arrived in the consciousness of broader technical circles. How natural is used potential energy in the form of water or compressed air. Why not with heavier materials like stone or concrete?
  • The Electricity and heat production from renewable energies is in a dilemma. Sometimes there it's an abundance on energy - off and to a shortage. In case of doldrums, the wind turbines do not turn, without sun, there is no solar energy. For this downtime must be conventional Power plants the energy gap shut down, because no storage option is available. This gap close, is the purpose of the invention.
  • This Problem is solved by the features listed in the protection claim 1 solved. Many machines with winches, rack stroke and lowering devices as well as hydraulic pumps and inclined lifts make it possible to lift heavy masses and transform into potential energy. For the drive comes mainly three-phase asynchronous machine, also three-phase induction machine in consideration, because they are both engine and generator can be used.
  • A combination, as shown in protection claim 2, with a second or more units of scaffolding, weight and lifting and lowering device results in an economically favorable structure. This is z. B. possible while a storage unit ( 12 ) stores electrical energy from wind power or solar energy, generates and supplies a second storage unit ( 13 ) Electricity in a consumer network. This eliminates the time dependency between favorable production and consumption. An equally great advantage results from the continuous lowering of the weights, whereby a fluctuation-free current is produced and so many electronic control is eliminated. To ensure this, in the case of the use of ropes, the winding is performed so that the leverage or the radius always remains the same (protection claim 3).
  • in the Fitness and sports area has a human need for balance, the sooner by the big one Range of manual labor was covered. A meaningful transformation this need at least the dimension illustrates in environmentally friendly energy of own consumption (protection claim 5).
  • A calculation example for the application in a medium-sized wind power plant (diameter 60 m) with about 2700 kWh daily output (8 hours) results for a 275 tonne concrete block (125 m 3 ) an increase of one meter, or a concrete block of one ton in 10 m Altitude would yield a power potential of about 12kWh per day. In the extrapolation for the space requirement of about 10 MWh already a playing field for football would be sufficient.
