The invention relates to the field of energy, namely, power plants, which convert the energy of flowing fluid into electrical energy.

A device for generating electricity, containing the first and second cylinders having open upper ends. In the first and second cylinders are moved, respectively, the first and second pistons available. The cylinders are communicated with one another through a pipeline connected with the lower ends of the cylinders. Sequential opening and closing the open ends of the cylinder is rotatable cap with drive. In the system of admission of fluid between the parts of the device, limited by the cylinder and the conduit, and between the two pistons. The device comprises a driven moving the fluid flow generator generating electroen the cover the second cylinder moves the first piston into the cylinder, thus the fluid in the first cylinder is moved by pipeline to the second piston and drives the generator. Then move the cover closes the first cylinder and opens the second, which provides the pressure of the fluid on the second piston and the return of the first piston to its original position. The generation of electricity is performed while moving the second piston inside the second cylinder (see U.S. patent N 4403154, IPC F 03 13/12, 1983 )

However, this device for the generation of electricity may not possess high efficiency, because the working fluid, resulting in a generator, in the process of moving through the pipeline in each working cycle changes its direction, i.e., the flow rate varies from maximum to zero when electricity is generated, and the very elaboration is uneven throbbing in nature. In addition, between the cover and the rising piston will be spent fluid, preventing lifting of the piston, which also reduces the efficiency of the device.

The objective of the invention is to increase the efficiency of power generation and increase the uniformity of its submission to the consumer.

In addition, the hydroelectric power plant is equipped with the third vertical cylinder 9 located between the first two cylinders 2, 3, reversible drive 10, the control unit (Fig. not shown), the sensors 11, 12 of the upper position of the pistons 4, 5, rollers 13, 14 with a flexible coupling 15 for connection of the reversing drive 10 with the pistons 4, 5, the lower end of the third cylinder 9 is connected to the lower ends of the two first cylinders 2, 3, and its upper end to the upper ends of the data of the cylinders 2, 3 by means of inclined upward piping 16, 17 with a non-return valve is located on level 8 of the working fluid in the cylinders 2, 3, and each piston 4, 5 - the form of a disk with a hole 21 or holes 21 along the axis of the cylinder 2 or 3 and the check valve 22 or a non-return valve 22 to overlap during movement of the piston 4 or 5 top, and the pistons 4, 5 are made with a density higher than the density of the flowing fluid, the sensors 11, 12 of the upper position of the pistons 4, 5 are located at the lower points 23, 24 of the inclined connection piping 16, 17 to the cylinders 2, 3 and are connected with the control unit, connected to a reversible drive 10 and the actuator 7 mentioned valve device 6, and in the wall of the third cylinder 9 above the level 8 of the working fluid but below the turbine 20 with holes 25 for communication with the atmosphere.

Cylinders 2, 3 and 9 fill fluid the working fluid up to level 8, in which the observed approximate equality of heights (H) from the level 8 to sensors 11, 12 and to the upper surface of the piston 4 or 5 in their lowest position.

Check valves 22 can be made in the form of a hinge mounted over the hole (holes) 21 plates (plates) 22 (piston 4) or in the form of a ball (balls) 22 (piston 5, which is placed in a conical hole (holes) 21 with the bounding mesh top (Fig. not marked).

For hobespenean, (of Fig. not shown), providing a time delay actuation of the reversing actuator 10 and the actuator 7 of the valve device 6, which may be in the form of halved washer articulated by the United halves and the Central and peripheral sealing elements (Fig. not shown) to ensure the integrity of the cylinders 2 and 3 when the overlap their upper ends.

Hydroelectric power plant operates as follows.

In the initial position the upper ends of the cylinders 2 and 3 are open, and the pistons 4 and 5, as equal in weight and having a density higher than the density of the working fluid immersed to the same depth, while the turbine 20 generator 1 (the unit) is located on level 8 of the working fluid, which can be used any non-aggressive fluid medium (water, oil and so on ). For starting work is driven by the reversible drive 10 (i.e., the actuator having the ability to rotate in different directions) and through the control unit of any of the pistons 4 or 5 connected thereto by flexible connection 15, the envelope rollers 13 and 14, for example, connected to the piston 5. In this case, the control unit additionally sends a signal to the actuator 7 silvaze 15 through the Central sealing element.

When lifting up the piston 5 is blocked by the check valve 22 and the opening 21 in the piston and the working fluid that is located on the piston 5 also rises, and the air present in the upper part of the cylinder 3 is compressed, increasing its pressure opens the check valve 19 and closes the check valve 18, the air acting on the turbine blades 20, drives the electric generator 1. It is possible to install before the turbine 20 of the guide vane, an employee and a support for the generator 1. After the turbine 20 air through the openings 25 being released into the atmosphere.

Raised by the piston 5, the working fluid reaching the point 24, begins to merge on the blades already promoted by the air stream of the turbine 20, increasing the speed of its rotation.

When the piston 4 goes down accordingly. The working fluid thus flows through the hole 21 and pressed check valve 22 and does not interfere with the immersion of the piston 4 to the lowest point, defined by a preselected length of the flexible connection 15, and the atmospheric pressure acting through the open end of the cylinder 2 to the working fluid contributes to the raising of the piston 5 and the working fluid above it.

When the piston 4 pogruzites ispolnennym, for example, in the form of a limit switch, the latter gives a signal to the control unit (similar to the control unit of the Elevator), which acts on the actuator 10 for changing the direction of rotation and the actuator 7 of the cylinder 3 and 2 for opening and closing the valve device 6, respectively.

Then the piston 4 rises and the working cycle is repeated, with rises up already calculated column of fluid.

Thus on the turbine blades 20 is continuous sequential impact of the flows of air and fluid in one direction.

If the pipes 16 and 17 do not provide a complete discharge of the working fluid when lifting pistons 4, 5 to the sensors 11, 12, there may be a temporary delay of the pistons 3, 4 in the extreme upper position by means of a timer control unit, i.e., the pistons 4, 5 some time will be fixed until you merge fully working fluid.

Level 8 of the working fluid, the location of the turbine 20 and holes 25 are selected based on the fact that the turbine 20 and the hole 2 was located always above the level of 8 in the third cylinder 9, i.e., so that the working fluid does not interfere with the rotation of the turbine 20 and is not leaking out of the holes 25 that fosmon level 8 to sensors 11, 12 and to the upper surface of the piston 4 or 5 in their lowest position.

As a reversible drive 10 may be used in any engine (except electric), capable of changing the direction of rotation, but you can also use two motors rotating in opposite directions and alternately connected through couplings to flexible connection 15, such as windmills or water wheels.
