SUBSTANCE: proposed method and device "wave turbine USTJUG" are designed for converting energy of sea waves into mechanical energy rotating the turbine. Turbine is arranged in deep still layers of water, and float holding turbinerotating shaft but not taking part in its rotation is located on water surface tasking part in wave motion. Displacements of float are transmitted through rotating shaft by means of rigid longitudinal tie with turbine, thus setting turbine into rotation. Owing to flexibility of blades, turbine moves always in one direction. Chords of blades at rest are located in plane of turbine rotation, and in active state, blades flex like wing of bird or tail of fish at stroke cross to direction of motion. Gripping of blade and power action from float to blade is provided according to rule U=0.29 in direction cross to plane of blade motion. Blades are arranged in pairs symmetrically relative to rotating shaft on crossmember to form separate element of turbine with torques of same signs for both blades number. Of such elements arranged along turbine rotating shaft determines power of turbine rising in proportion of number of turbine elements whose relative arrangement in angle of plane of rotation and element-to-element distance of rotating shaft is determined to provide maximum efficiency of elements in operation.

SUBSTANCE: present invention pertains to hydraulic power development. A support arm with a hinge, enabling rotation and fixing the water pipeline in the direction of flow of water, allows for using the power installation as a flow power installation or as a wave power installation. Functional capabilities of the power installation are widened due to use of water pipelines with orthogonal turbines and an electric power generator under water on the support arm. The amount of electrical power generated can also be increased due to that, the blades are oriented in opposite directions for rotation of orthogonal turbines in opposite, unchanged directions, independent of the direction of flow through the orthogonal turbines. The inductor coil of the electric power generator is immoveable, has two-directional operation and is between neighbouring short-circuited rotors, each connected to its axle of the orthogonal turbine. The short-circuited rotors rotate in opposite directions, are fitted with small clearances from the inductor coil and are fixed using lining made from material with low sliding friction. As a result, there is increased efficiency of using energy of water passing through the flow part of the convergent-divergent water pipeline.

EFFECT: wider functional capabilities of a power installation with orthogonal turbines.
