(57) Abstract:The inventive casing as betonirovannaa shore. In the case of half-hosted blade turbine, located on an axis that is installed in a concrete base. The body is equipped with guide rails placed behind the wheel downstream of the river, and a partition with floats. Wall mounted for movement along the guides. The axis of the turbine is vertical. Clutch and generator located above the level of the river. The width of the turbine blades is made more difference between the maximum and minimum levels of the river. 1 Il. The invention relates to section "H" - electricity, in particular, subsection "Production, transformation and distribution of electric energy."The prototype of the invention is a hydroelectric power station according to German patent N 524883, CL F 03 B 9/10, 1927.The disadvantages of this design are its setting on the river bottom, where the speed is much less than in the surface layers, the placement of the sleeves and generators in sealed enclosures, which reduces its efficiency and ease of maintenance. The housing is made of metal, which increases its intensity.Cell.This is achieved by installation of a hydroelectric power plant on the shore, placing couplings and generators outdoors, as well as the corresponding width of the blades of the turbine.The drawing shows a diagram of the coastal river hydroelectric power.Plant in a static state consists of blades 1, rigidly connected with the axle 2. The axle 2 is mounted on the thrust bearing 3, is placed in the concrete case 4, set on the banks of the river. In the concrete case 4 is fixed on the anchor bolts 5 metal bracket 6 on which you installed the clutch 7, the generator 8 and the bearing 9 axis 2.The width of the blade 1 is structurally determined by the amount of difference of the maximum and minimum levels of the river at this location and the size of the width of the part of the blade 1, which ensures stable rotation of the turbine with a minimum level of the water surface.The length of the blades 1 depends on the capacity of hydroelectric power.Advantages of the proposed hydropower plants are easy to service due to the installation on the banks, it increased in comparison with the prototype efficiency due to the placement of the coupling and the generator outdoors and lack of sealing, due to the placement of the production design and the reduction of metal consumption.Hydroelectric works as follows.The river rotate the blade 1, the rotation by the shaft 2 is transmitted to the clutch 7 and the generator 8,- produced electric current.

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.
FIELD: engines and pumps.
