Title:
A METHOD FOR CAPTURING AND GENERATING ELECTRICITY FROM SHOCKWAVES CREATED BY LIGHTNING/ELECTRICAL ARCING
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2020/060657
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
A method for capturing shockwaves from high voltage arcs from both human and natural sources and generating additional power therefrom is disclosed. The invention is comprised of three main parts: a first part being a shockwave chamber with a conductive channel having a gap therebetween; a second part being a sealed compression chamber with a pressure reduction system; and a third part being a pressure turbine. When the aforementioned high voltage arcs across the gap in the conductive material, the shockwave is captured within the shockwave chamber. The shockwave is then stepped down by the pressure reduction system and is then transferred to the turbine which rotates to provides additional mechanical energy.
