The invention relates to the field of energy and can be used in various branches of national economy, in particular can be used on any flat terrain, where there is a reservoir or tank of water.

Known water installations used for various purposes, including: to generate electricity in hydroelectric power plants (HPP), to generate electricity for desalination and filtration of water running through the drop of water levels the surface.

Many water installations represent a complex and expensive facilities and equipment, and can only be installed in certain areas, the landscape which allows successful operation of HPP (see Petro G.A., Special types of buildings hydraulic installations. M: Energy, 1975, S; Kerov VG, Kerava M.E. Ter-Minassian, Hydroelectric, Patent RF №2012713, CL EV 9/00, bull. No. 9 of 15.05.94).

Most of the existing hydro power plants represent a serious environmental threat and can cause man-made disasters (see Ismagilov IVAN, man-made disaster threaten economic, energy, national security and the functioning of the state. Vestnik Kazanskogo state technical University, 2010, No. 5, P.184-189).

The famous "Underground pumped storage power plant" (is. Vissarionov, V.I., Dexter DJ Underground pumped storage power plant, ed. St. USSR №746028, CL EV 9/00, bull. No. 25 from 07.07.80)containing pipelines; the tank with walls covered with a gas-tight casing and insulating material; hydraulic machines, which can work as turbines; electrical machinery, which can operate as an electric generator.

The disadvantage of this HPP are: complex and expensive facilities and equipment, placing it under the ground, which leads to an increase in additional economic costs for the development and operation of hydropower plants and significantly affects the cost of electricity in General.

Closest to the technical essence of the present invention and taken as a prototype is a "Vacuum hydroelectric power plant" (see Tabatadze addressed I.I., Vacuum hydroelectric, Patent RF №2005199, CL F03B 13/06, bull. No. 47-48 from 30.12.93). This vacuum HPP (figure 1) includes: a reservoir 1, a sealed chamber 2, a turbine 3, the generator 4, the filler funnel 5, the cover 6, gauge 7, vodoravno 8, the suction outlet 9 with the valve 10, the pipe 12, valve 13, a vacuum pump 14, a motor 15, a battery 16, the outlet pipe 17, valve 18, a turbine 19, the generator 20. Waste water is discharged through for 21.

Disadvantages you the run of the prototype are: 1) structural impossibility desalination and filtration of sea water; 2) no device for heating or cooling fluid in heat exchange apparatus; 3) this setup can only work in a mountainous area, where there is a natural differential water surface, but may not work on flat terrain. All these factors lead to limit functionality widespread use of this water installations.

Solved object of the invention is to enhance the functionality, in particular desalination, filtration, heating, or cooling water.

The technical result, which sent the invention is to expand the functionality of the vacuum water installations, in particular seawater desalination, water filtration, heating, or cooling.

The technical result is achieved by the fact that vacuum-water systems containing sealed chamber with a device for creating suction, turbines, kinematically associated with generators, pressure cell, which is connected via a suction line from the reservoir through the drain line with valves, motor, vacuum gauge, vodoravno, inside the sealed chamber entered a pressurized container with a large cross-section and with the possibility of alternating moves from the environment to the vacuum pressure in which dnow Wednesday, and also introduced the n-th number of sealed containers of a smaller cross-section, located in the aquatic environment, and they are placed on a single rope or chain with the ability at their equilibrium position displacement or discharge water volume and unwinding of the respective turbine, receiving electricity with turbines, with respective generators placed in the injection and discharge pipelines and installed above the reservoir to filter water at the ends of the pipes are mesh filters, with one filter mesh is made with the possibility of a high degree of purification, respectively, with high hydraulic resistance, another mesh filter with low hydraulic resistance, and for desalination sea water or produce steam with subsequent condensation of the airtight chamber through a pipeline with a valve connected to the ejector high pressure, one end of which is connected to a consumer of fresh water through a heat consumer, and the other end of the ejector sequentially connected to a source of high pressure at the inlet and outlet of the sealed chamber mounted valves;

to ensure equilibrium and prevent lifting of the pressurized container above a predetermined level, inside the sealed chamber is rigidly mounted backup the sealed container;

to avoid overheating or freezing of water along the contour of the sealed chamber is a heat-insulation layer;

for heating or cooling of the fluid in the discharge water from a reservoir in a sealed chamber in the discharge pipe has a heat exchanger.

The main advantages of this invention are:

1. Vacuum water systems can be installed at any location where a water body (e.g. river, lake, sea, ocean or any water tank.

2. For operation of the proposed vacuum water installations with the aim of simultaneous or alternate water filtration, desalination does not require continuous operation of the vacuum pump with the appropriate cost of electricity.

3. To create a stream of liquid (water) with the aim of promotion of the respective turbines and generate electricity using special device: a sealed cylinder filled with air (gas), on the same rope (chain); the rotation of the wheels and the movement of the pressurized cylinders is carried out by means of the electric motor. Due to the fact that the system is leak-proof bottles almost always is in equilibrium, the energy minimum to move them inside an airtight box.

4. All the main components of the vacuum water installations are sealed inside the ameres with vacuum pressure and are not sources of noise.

5. There is a possibility to install several vacuum hydro installations in one place.

6. Vacuum water systems can be effectively applied to simultaneous or alternating desalination of sea water, produce steam, water filtration, heating, or cooling of the coolant in the heat exchanger.

7. Vacuum water systems for desalination and water filtration does not represent a threat to the environment because there is no need to build dams, to change the direction of natural water flows, to artificially create differential levels of water surface, distorting the natural landscape and sharing the habitat representatives of the living fauna.

Scientific novelty of this invention are:

1) the first opportunity to install environmentally friendly vacuum water systems on any flat terrain, where there is a water tank or water, without the need to create dams, artificial raising of the level of the river, placing underground or in the mountains;

2) the application for the first time a special system pressurized cylinders are located on the same rope (chain) and located in any position in equilibrium inside the sealed chamber with a lower pressure than atmospheric;

3) receiving the first power, which partially compensates the costs of filtration and desalination in the s by corresponding rotation of the turbine due to water flow, created by displacement or discharge of water in a sealed chamber with motion of a system of pressurized cylinders.

To explain the technical nature of the invention, consider Fig 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, where:

This vacuum water systems system contains pressurized cylinders 19 and 9. It is proposed to use the same size, volume, weight pressurized cylinders 19 with air (gas) inside. A pressurized container 9 also inside contains air (gas). Shell sealed cylinders 19 and 9 should be made of light materials. Pressurized cylinders 19 and 9 are designed so that in any position to remain in equilibrium (figure 3, 4, 5). Let V1- the volume of the pressurized cylinder 9 in the water, a V2- the total volume of the pressurized cylinders 19, which balances the volume V1. Figure 3 shows that V1=0 and V2=0. And figs.4 and 5 V1=V2i.e. the volume of the sealed part of the container 9, which is in the water, balanced volume V2. If we neglect the mass of all pressurized cylinders, at any location of the entire system is pressurized cylinders is in equilibrium (equality arhimedova forces Fa, 3, 4, 5). For example, this can be achieved as follows: the cross-sectional area S1sealed cylinder 9 must be 2 times more p is Asadi cross-section S 2pressurized cylinders 19 (6). In this case, when passing distance h1airtight tank 9, for example when submerged it in water, the volume V1balanced volume V2(6)where:

where h1- the height of the part of the airtight container 9 in the water, m;

S1-the cross-sectional area of the pressurized cylinder 9, m

Figure 6 shows one such situation, when the integer n is a number of pressurized cylinders 19 is the total volume V2equal to:

where h2- the height of one pressurized cylinder 19, m; S2- the cross-sectional area of the pressurized cylinders 19, m2; n - total number of sealed containers 19 in equilibrium with volume V1.

Thus, it requires less power (energy) to move pressurized cylinders 9, 19, and therefore, less power consumed by the motor 15. However, when high speed rotation of the wheel 14 is possible, when the water level 8 is slightly deviates from its normal level N (figure 2). To avoid large deviations is proposed to construct an airtight chamber 25 so that the total area of water-level 8 was several times more area and cross-sectional airtight container 9. Thus, a pressurized container 9 is alternately in the water, the vacuum space, and pressurized cylinders 19 are always in the water (figure 2, figure 3, figure 4, figure 5). To prevent lifting of the pressurized cylinder 9 above a predetermined level is used the fixed support 10, is rigidly fixed inside the sealed chamber 25. Wheels 14, 26 mounted on the corresponding stationary racks 13, 27. The motor 15 with the battery installed still inside the sealed chamber 25. Strainers 29, 23 with a small hydraulic resistance serve to prevent debris, dirt particles, etc. in a sealed chamber 25 and on the blades of the respective turbines 4, 21.

We offer vacuum water systems is as follows.

Setting water installations. First valves 28 and 24 close the access to the respective pipes 3 and 22, open valve 12. The pipeline 1 by means of a pump 2 in a sealed chamber 25 at an open valve 7 receives water from a reservoir (tank) 30. An airtight chamber filled with water to a height exceeding the height H (figure 2), a pressurized container 9 is fully or partially immersed in water. Then valve 12 and the valve 7 is closed, the valve 24 moves to the open position, the water rushes through the drain pipe 22 into the reservoir (reservoir) 30. When the water level inside the sealed chamber 25 is reduced, and the pressure inside this chamber becomes smaller than the external atmospheric pressure p1(figure 2). The water level H can be found by the formula:

where p1- external atmospheric pressure, PA; p2- the internal pressure inside the sealed chamber above the surface of the water, PA; g - acceleration of gravity, m/s; ρW- density of liquid (water), kg/m3.

Thus, above the surface of water in a sealed chamber 25, the pressure p2<<p1. The readings of the devices 16 and 18 can be sure in the original water level inside the sealed chamber 25 (figure 2).

The vacuum water installations

At the beginning of the operation of the vacuum water installations pressurized cylinders 9 and 19 are in their initial position (figure 2, figure 3). The valve 12 is closed, the valve 28 is in the closed position and the valve 24 is open. When the coil is energized from the battery to the electric motor 15 of the wheel 14 rotates counterclockwise, a pressurized container 9 starts to dive, thus displacing water from the sealed chamber 25. The water flow is directed through the drain pipe 22 into reservoir (tank) 30, for the promotion of the turbine 21. The generator 20 generates electricity, partially offset the cost of seawater desalination, aluchemie pair, water filtration, heating or cooling the respective coolant in the heat exchanger. After the turbine 21 will cease to rotate, the valve 24 will move to the closed position and the valve 28 is open. When this pressurized cylinders 9 and 19 are, as in figure 5. When the coil is energized from the battery to the electric motor 15 of the wheel 14 rotates in the opposite direction, clockwise. A pressurized container 9 rises, pumping water from a reservoir (tank) 30. The water enters the sealed chamber 25 through the discharge pipe 3, for the promotion of the turbine 4 and the generator 5 generates electricity, partially offset the cost of desalination of sea water, steam, water filtration, heating or cooling the respective coolant in the heat exchanger. After a pressurized container 9 will return to its original position (figure 2, figure 3)and the turbine 4 will cease to rotate, the valve 28 will move to the closed position. Next cycle water installations repeated.

If the external atmospheric pressure is provided by maintaining a constant height of water level 8 inside the sealed chamber 25. For example, with increasing atmospheric pressure vodoravno 18 shows the increase in water level. Opens valve 12, the pressure inside the sealed chamber 25 above the water increases, and with whom m the water level 8 is reduced due to the ingress of water into the tank (pond) 30 through the drain pipe 22. After the water level will decrease to the source, the valve 12 is closed. By reducing the external atmospheric pressure, the water level 8 can be reduced. Therefore, the estimated height of water column N (2) must meet the low atmospheric pressure. If during operation of the water installations and multiple opening the valve 12, the pressure p2will increase (figure 2) compared with the allowable design pressure, gauge 16 will lock this increase. In this case, it is necessary to close valves 28, 24 access to pipelines 3, 22 and by means of a pump 2 when you open the valve 7 to raise the water level 8. And then at the closed valve 12, the valve 24 to open access to the pipeline 22, and then, when the water inflow into the reservoir (tank) 30, there will be a vacuum, and pressure p2inside the sealed chamber 25 will be reduced.

To avoid overheating or freezing of water inside the sealed chamber 25 is suggested to use the insulating layer 6 (figure 2). When using the tank 30 with a small surface area of the water level 31 can vary. For example, when the water discharge from water installations he will rise, and for discharge into the water systems will decrease. To maintain the water level 31 permanent accommodation of two identical hydro installations running at the same time: when magnet the Institute of water from a reservoir in one water systems, the same volume of water sourced from different water installations in the same tank.

The inventive vacuum water systems can be used for desalination of sea water and produce steam with subsequent condensation. In this case, inside the vacuum water installations can be effectively evaporate the water due to the heat Q environment (see Andryushchenko A.I. Fundamentals of thermodynamics cycles of thermal power plants, M.: Higher school, 1968, S), with an airtight chamber 25 is not covered outside of the insulating layer 6 (Fig.7). Low pressure steam from the sealed chamber 25 is supplied at an open gate valve 32 through line 33 into the high pressure ejector 34, inside of which he is fond of flow of high-pressure steam supplied from a source of high pressure steam 35. The heat from the condensed vapor mixture is delivered to the heat consumer 38, one part of the condensate is in the form of fresh water to the consumer of fresh water 37, and the other part of the pump 36 is delivered to a source of high-pressure steam 35 (for example, in a steam boiler) (Fig.7).

This invention can be used for heating or cooling of the coolant in the heat exchanger (see Bulgarian AV, Mukhachev GA, Shchukin VK, Thermodynamics and heat transfer, M.: Higher school, 1964, S-421). If the water temperature in the reservoir (tank) 30 (Fig) lower than the temperature of the coolant in the pipe 40 at the entrance to the heat exchanger 39, the water injected into the sealed chamber 25, cools the coolant. If the temperature in the reservoir (tank) 30 higher than the temperature of the coolant in the pipe 40 at the entrance to the heat exchanger 39, the consumer 41 receives heat (Fig).

The water systems can be successfully used for cheap water filtration. For example, the reservoir (tank) 30 contains water which is to be cleaned, and the reservoir 42 - purified water (Fig.9). In this case, the mesh filter 29 is a filter to a high degree of purification and, therefore, with high hydraulic resistance, and the strainer 23 - low hydraulic resistance (Fig.9).

The estimated vacuum water systems can effectively be used in the simultaneous or alternate functions: seawater desalination, water filtration, heating, or cooling fluid.

This vacuum water systems can be used, for example, to implement any one function, such as filtering water.

This movement of the cylinder in a sealed chamber is the movement of water in the pressure and drain the pipe and the filtering process is performed when the water passes through the filters. In this case, the coolant in heat exchange apparatus, the ejector, the generators will not function.

EN is a logical way to implement desalination:

To do this, using the movement of the cylinders in a sealed chamber is the movement of water in the pressure and drain the pipe, ensure the operation of the ejector, while the condensation of steam to obtain fresh water. This pipeline filters are not installed and do not operate the coolant heat exchanger and the generator.

Techno-economic advantages of the invention compared with the known analogues:

1) movement of the pressurized cylinders inside the sealed chamber with a lower pressure than atmospheric, displaced or injected volume of water spins the turbine and the corresponding generator produced electricity;

2) pressurized cylinders inside the sealed chamber in any position are in balance;

3) the ability to maintain water levels (for the optimal operation of the vacuum water installations) in the tank with a small surface area constant due to the fact that the volume of water flowing in one vacuum water systems from this reservoir is equal to the volume of water flowing into the same reservoir from another vacuum water installations;

4) getting a pair with its subsequent condensation and obtaining fresh water, partially offsetting the costs of these processes through the production side is elektroenergii when the unwinding of the respective turbine;

5) cooling or heating fluid in the heat exchanger, partially offset the costs of these processes through the production side of the power in the unwinding of the respective turbines;

6) cheap and efficient water filtration.

In comparison with the known analogues offer vacuum water systems, due to the constructive characteristics, is a multifunctional, environmentally safe and can be applied on any flat terrain and in different sectors of the economy and industry.
