1. A combined wind-power electricity generation system that uses a mechanically turned wheel (such as a foot-pedalled wheel) system to generate electricity.
2. An electricity generation system as in 1. above characterized by the presence
of a solar energy system using lens focusing to heat up gas from a compression
container/system as auxiliary energy supplier.
3. An electricity generation system as in 2. above that has a greenhouse structure to embrace a compressed gas container/enclosure.
4. An electricity generation sytem as in 3. above that has detachable black surfaces protruding to surrounding heat supply contacts to extract heat.
COMBINED WIND POWER ELECTRICITY GENERATOR
This invention relates to a CWPEG (Combined Wind Power Electricity Generator).
Electricity generation has caused a lot of pollution problem, e.g. exhaust from
firepower plants. Windpower generation suffers from wind-site location. This invention seeks to provide a windpower generation system whereby mild
wind sites can be utilized by combination of solar and other energy supply. According to this invention there is provided a CWPEG, comprising a wind- blade system as in ordinary windpower generation, a gear-system whereby a
mechanically turned axle can be connected to supply energy to the wind blade (with attachment/detachment device); the axle is turned by mechanical , for
example, via a pedal or manual system. In addition a compressed air or gas system is installed so that compressed gas getted onto the wind blade will
assist the turning of the system. Solar lenses and heliostats are present to supply the turning of the system. In suitable climate air/gas compression
device would be installed to make use of air temperature, for example by
extracting heat from unfrozen water/the sea.
Figure 1 represents a side perspective of CWPEG.
Figure 2 represents a side perspective of a control jet system 03 (with control
device not shown), taken at 90 degrees angle to the CWPEG.
Referring to Figure 1 a CWPEG has a wind blade 01, on an axle attached to a
wind-turbine system 02 standing on a mount 12.
Referring to Figure 2, at the bottom of wind blade 01, placed at suitable angle,
there is a valve controlled jet system 03 with a detachable compressed gas/air
container 04. Over the container there is a solar lens; at other positions, helio-
stat may be present. Black metal conductor surface 06 and 11 protrudes over
the container 04 and its body to capture solar heat. The whole container 04 and black metal conductor surface 06 may be covered by transparent surface
like glass; the wind-blade 01 has an end gear system 07 connecting it to a detach¬
able pedal system 08. (The turbine system 02 may be installed in front of or behind the gear system 07 with relocation of other parts.) Incidental windpower
control including speed control, etc. for the windblades are present. Other incidental parts for windpower electricity generation and collection are present.
Qn places with very cold temperature, instead of the container 04, a compression system making use of the cold air may be present to extract the heat of the water
(e.g. sea water) nearby, and pumps and heat pumps may be used.) Operation:
1. In mild wind situation, seat cabin 09 with cover and ventilation/air condition is manned.
2. The operator turns the foot pedal 08 to eliminate static friction and also to
supply additional energy to the wind blade (which is attached via automatic control device).
3. In day time, the heat from the air and the sun is used to heat up the gas con¬
tainer 04, and the hot air now jets onto the windpower blade.
As a result electricity is produced and is collected via storage systems (including
invertor/convertor systems) such as detachable batteries or goes to the electric
company via meter systems (as alternating current).
In big buildings, heat absorbers (in the form of black metal surfaces 11) may stretch over the building to capture sunlight energy to the CWPEG.
( Note - 1. The pedal system may be replaced by a bicycle or tricycle or other
wheel systems run by force.
2. Black metal surface 11 may be built in such a way that when the
part outside the greenhouse 13 is colder than the part inside, 11 is detached away from contact with the part inside the greenhouse 13 by
automatic heat detection and detachment operation system.)
