Mother nature spoils mankind with energy in abundance. The energy is not to be found concentrated in one spot or in just one of Platon's elements where it could be collected easily. Instead energy is rather equally distributed on the globe inherent in the radiation of the sun, in the kinetic energy of the wind and in the flow of water. Mankind has to reinvent techniques which have been used in the earliest stage of civilization. We all have to become hunters and collectors again - energy will be subject to collecting and hunting in our times. It will be one challenge to collect it in the planes and in the mountains as well as on the coasts and in the open seas, another challenge will be to store it, to save it and to use it wisely. Skills and creativity of the hunter will be needed for collecting it with new methods affording a minimum of effort. Methods and devices will resemble giant fish traps, when rotor blades are connected among each other to form a giant net structure like with the RES - Giga Tube, they may be similar to giant ring shaped traps like with the RES - Giga Wheel, or they may featuring a giant blade like with the RES - Mega Wheel. All of these devices and structures are rooted in the earliest stages of civilization when spears already where aerodynamically formed to fly and nets were manufactured to catch the prey and circles of stone have been erected to get hold on seasonal change, resembling contemporary circular structures for mirrors concentrating sunlight on one spot on a central tower resembling a menhir.

RES - Big Wheel 1

RES-Big Wheel : Something big from #theländ reaches out to the Pacific. #resbigwheel https://lnkd.in/emx99Trm has three-part rotor blades #resblade. This big wheel is not intended to spin your wheels, but on the contrary your full attention will be asked to understand its specific advantages. The big wheel can be built with diameters which lay beyond the diameters of state of the art wind turbines. A lightweight structure is used for the rotor, consisting of an outer compression ring, a nozzle and V-shaped tension cables arranged in radial order. The rotor blades themselves lay in a rotor plane and are cantilevered from the wheels outer compression ring to the outer side as well as to the inside. A rotor blade is twisted in itself and consists of a plurality of straight longitudinal sections in which the nose segment and the leading segment are adjustable in a way to either have a positive or a negative angle of incidence respective to the incoming flow. In other words: The suction side of the asymmetric wing profile can be switched from the leeward orientation to the windward orientation. Supposed, the suction side of every second or every third rotor blade is oriented to the windward side, the effect will be not only to have a gradually adjustable means to slow down the rotation of the wheel, but also to create thrust opposite to the direction of the wind, which helps to reduce the bending moment on the supporting forked mast. #OffshoreWind #OnshoreWind #EnergyTransition #EnergySecurity #EnergyIndependence #EnergyPolicy #GreenEnergy #RenewableEnergy #WindEnergy #ClimateSolution #windturbine #offshore #asktheinventor #reswindpower #windenergy #resblade

RES - Gyro Turbine 1

RES - GyroTurbine https://lnkd.in/eNYWFN2R Huge wheel being rotated by the power of wind. #resgyroturbine "Winds are drafted and not blown" is what R. Buckminster Fuller stated in 1946 and he was absolutely right in this different and prospective perspective of describing the phenomena called wind. Today we know that the wind is a complex three dimensional event, driven by pressure differences in the atmosphere and effects caused by the rotation of the earth itself. Therefore the current model to make use of the gigantic amount of kinetic energy inherent in the wind, by cutting out a flow column out of the atmosphere, that aims at the rotor plane of a wind turbine and will be slowed down there by three rotating rotor blades capable to convert up to 49%, according to the Betz law, of the winds kinetic energy into rotation is only one approach to convert the linear fraction of the flow into rotational energy. There are others. One of the outstanding advantages of a vertical axis wind turbine is the fact that the rotor does not have to be adjusted perpendicular to the wind. A vertical axis wind turbine that uses asymmetrical wing profiles for the rotor blades closes the efficiency gap in comparison to a state of the art wind turbine with a horizontal axis of rotation. Each of the wind turbines shown here, in front of and behind of the Oeresund bridge are twice effective by harvesting the winds energy in the windward half as well as in the leeward half of the rotors orbit. The turbine has a diameter of 300 meters. The middle sections of the three part rotor blades are rigidly connected to the upper and lower part of the outer compression ring of a spoked wheel stabilized by steel cables in a radial arrangement. The compression ring is also used as a walkable maintenance corridor giving access to the middle part of the three blade rotor profiles allowing inspection and maintenance. The middle part of the rotor blade is cantilevered 50 meters up and 50m down. #OffshoreWind #OnshoreWind #EnergyTransition #EnergySecurity #EnergyIndependence #EnergyPolicy #GreenEnergy #RenewableEnergy #WindEnergy #ClimateSolution #OffshoreWind #OnshoreWind #EnergyTransition #EnergySecurity #EnergyIndependence #EnergyPolicy #GreenEnergy #RenewableEnergy #WindEnergy #ClimateSolution #offshore #asktheinventor #reswindpower #windenergy

RES - Gyro Turbine 3

Res - Gyro Turbine saves resources by lightweight construction. https://lnkd.in/eaMmSeNB #resgyroturbine #resgigatube #resdoubleaction While the load bearing parts of a conventional wind turbine with a horizontal axis of rotation are subjected to continuous bending loads, the gyro turbine with a vertical axis of rotation, presented here, has components that are predominantly subjected to tensile and compressive forces. The fact that the center wing segment of the three-part rotor blade is simultaneously part of the load bearing structure allows to build a lightweight rotor basket, made up of compression and tension members held in place by circumferentially under-spanned ring beams. The motor-generator is integrated in a buoy with a counter weight at its lower end. Under water a counter rotating water turbine delivers extra energy and enhances the hydrodynamic stability of this dual effective offshore installation. #windturbine #offshore #asktheinventor #reswindpower #makeitfloat #windenergy #windturbine #offshore #withhydropower #asktheinventor #reswindpower #youcangetitifyoureallywant #resbigbuy

RES - Gyro Turbine 4

Seven at one stroke ! https://lnkd.in/eRwkSCfG #resgyroturbine #resbigbuy This novel floating Gyro Turbine uses the mass inertia caused by gyro forces to stabilize the turbine around the vertical axis of rotation. Coaxial and concentric to the axis of rotation, the hub of a horizontal spoked wheel is connected about seventy meters above sea level to a rod-shaped buoy whose extended lower end is designed as a ballast body. Ten rotor blades arranged parallel to the axis of rotation are designed as cantilevers and project fifty meters upward and downward from the rim of the spoked wheel, which has a radius of one hundred and fifty meters. Supporting and tensioning cables stabilize the rotor as radial spokes and, together with the hub and rim, form a lightweight structure that meets the Buckminster Fuller tensegrity structure criteria. Below the water surface, a much smaller water turbine, also of spoke-wheel construction, rotates in the opposite direction around the rod-shaped buoy to compensate for the precession of the upper gyro. The water turbine is driven by the tidal current or by the current of a flowing water. The peak power of both turbines sums up to more than 50 MW, so that one buoy can replace seven of today's most powerful floating offshore wind turbines with horizontal axis of rotation. Also much less material is needed to build this structure, drastically lowering production costs for electricity. #makeitfloat #windenergy #windturbine #offshore #withhydropower #asktheinventor #reswindpower #youcangetitifyoureallywant #resship

RES - Gyro Turbine 5

RES-Gyro Turbine - Onshore https://lnkd.in/ecxAX7X6 #resgyroturbine While the components mast and rotor blades of a conventional wind turbine with a horizontal axis of rotation are subjected to continuous bending, tensile and compressive loads, the gyro turbine with a vertical axis of rotation presented here has components that are predominantly subjected to normal forces. The fact that the center wing segment of the three-part rotor blade is also a compression member of the rotor, which is made up of compression members, tension members and circumferentially subspanned ring beams and is designed as a lattice shell, makes this design very light. The motor-generator mounted on a cantilever arm of the base is connected to the stator of a ring generator, the rotor being connected to a hub which is hinged to the cantilever arm at an upper and a lower pivot bearing and forms the central part of a spoke wheel construction which supports the rotor basket. #windenergy #windturbine #onshore #asktheinventor #reswindpower #youcangetitifyoureallywant

RES - Gyro Turbine 6

RES - GigaTube : Showdown on the Hudson River off Jersey #reswindcolumn PCT application published with research report ! https://lnkd.in/et9qwc6S https://lnkd.in/dmez_w_3 https://lnkd.in/eVcSpURp #resgigatube Would you believe that the wind column on the left requires only half the weight to achieve the same power than the conventional wind wheel on the right at wind speeds up to 12 m/s and can double to triple the power at wind speeds > 12 m/s? #asktheinventor Despite the all-steel construction, the wind column has less than half the design weight of a conventional 7 MW horizontal wind turbine. While the HAWT already has to be down-regulated at wind speeds of more than 12 m/s, the wind column can be operated without regulation at wind speeds of up to 15 m/s and beyond. Especially for offshore turbines, which are often exposed to strong winds, the electrical yield in this range can be doubled or tripled compared to a conventional HAWT. This is possible because the optimum performance of the VAWT is already achieved at a resulting inflow that is "only" three times the wind speed. The center segment of the three-part rotor blade #resblade is designed as a rod-shaped support element of the cylindrical lattice shell structure, while the nose segment and the trailing edge segment of the rotor blade can be adjusted by a maximum of 9 degrees relative to the center segment, wherein the suction side of the rotor blade periodically changes from the inner side of the orbit to the outer side of the orbit and vice versa, at a diameter alignable perpendicular to the respective wind direction with two turning points to align the asymmetrically profiled rotor blades in both halves of the orbit to the leeward side. The rotor blade is divided into longitudinal sections and has integrated actuators that have a setting and holding function in the respective longitudinal sections. The design of a cable-stayed lattice shell is scalable and can be made both smaller and larger than the 200 m tower shown here. Technical specifications : - Incident flow area 14,000 sqm - 8 rotor blades 880 t (550kg/m) - 8 rings 238 t - Tensioning ropes 400 t - Generator 300 t - Nacelle 1.216 t - Total weight 3,004 t
