VORTEX POWER OF WATER

VORTEX POWER OF RAPIDS

 

Presently no new patents exist to capture energy efficiently from small waterfalls or fast rapids  or even rivers without limiting fish migration.

HUG (Helical Unique Generation) is an Innovative New Design, which could put clean, river-friendly power within reach of everyone. It produces high energy from a hydroelectric turbine system, which in turn, generates a high return of investment.

Why not just build a dam? There are many situations where

(1) Damming of the flowing water is prohibitively expensive

(2) It is impossible because of soil conditions

(3) It is impracticable because of navigational needs for the flowing water.

Small batches of HUG turbines can be installed with only a short period of 12 to 18 months between investment in the technology and the time when revenue starts to flow: it is modular, relatively easy to install and highly scalable.

 So what is the Secret of the Vortex?

The Cycloid Spiral Motion in a HUG forces the flow to “roll” inward around the axis of motion of the water’s flow. This natural kind of motion tends to accelerate and align the stream of water along its path. This creates a boundary layer along the inside of the HUG Spiraling Pipeline that makes it possible to create zero friction in a laminar flow.  The result is a doubling and quadrupling of the velocity of the laminar flow that increases the kinetic energy of the helical turbine, which is located at the end of the HUG.

This is best seen by the Kinetic Energy Formula with respect to Velocity:

The most critical factor is the Velocity of the flow.   A tripling of the Velocity from 2.5 m/s multiplies the Kinetic Energy (KE) by 3³ or 27X, by the formula:

KE (Kinetic Energy) = ½ x  A x V ³ x efficiency (A = area swept; Velocity)

      = 0.5 x 3.26 m² x (7.72 m/s)³ x 35% = 260 kW/turbine

HUG INNOVATION:  HUG (Helical Unique Generation) is a New Good,

GREEN HYDRO POWER STATIONS The installation of most of very low head sites is technically feasible, but civil works give rise to high costs, resulting to economically enviable projects. To solve this problem, one must design a new machine using a completely different philosophy to equip such sites. The study of current turbines reveals that they were all invented on the basis of a poor understanding of hydrodynamics, and a consequent false premise.

MOBILE HUG: The HUG development is an exciting breakthrough in green energy. Small batches of HUG turbines can be installed with only a short period of 12 to 18 months between investment in the technology and the time when revenue starts to flow: it is modular, relatively easy to install and highly scalable.  

PRE-FABRICATED HUG Standardized pre-fabricated modules should make it possible to order this new product as a “power plant kit” just like ordering from a catalog. The HUG power plant uses standardized parts, so no custom engineering is necessary. A one-size-fits-all pathway could be ordered.

Why is the HUG Frictionless? When we direct the water to flow at its natural mode, it hugs the inner wall. This kind of vortex motion tends to accelerate and contract the stream of water. The less collisions improves the flow, i.e. the better ordered and more dense the flow will be. The net result is that the velocity of the flow in the HUG is four to five times faster than the river velocity.

HUG WATER TRANSFER  A spiraling pipeline allows the transfer of water to travel two to three times faster, abet longer distances, because of the physics of the vortex: water prefers to travel in a whirlpool fashion rather than a turbulent straight line.

AFRICAN WATER TRANSFERS PROTECTED HUG is a patented water transfer system that will literally change the face of our world as we know it. 

European Fresh Water Transfer PROTECTED Imagine new fresh water delivered over 1000 km in a HUG ocean pipeline.

GREAT LAKES REVIVAL PROTECTED There was a time when the thought of transporting oil across the ocean seemed silly, too.

NEW FRESH WATER FOR MID WEST PROTECTED The James Bay Water Basin is one of the only basin in North America with water to spare. Without this new source of fresh water, there will be no more cheap water available.
