The invention relates to energy, particularly hydropower and can be used in the construction of hydroelectric power plants (HPP) without lifting water from the river dams, and without any damage to the shipping and fisheries.

Known power devices that convert the kinetic energy of the flow of the river into electricity. For example, Hydroelectric centuries Soloviev", the description of the invention to the author's certificate of the USSR N 1652640, CL F 03 In 13/08, published in BI N 20, 30.05.91. [1]. The essence of this invention is as follows.

Hydroelectric has installed in the stream along the Bank of the diversion channel, made in the form of an open top box. Cross section of the duct decreases downstream. At least two flow a working camera with generating units connected to the box. The input sections of the working chambers made in the form of trays with inclined flow upper walls.

This invention can be taken as a close analogue to the invention.

However, this analogue has a number of disadvantages, namely:

- hit in the pipelines for water supply major is dvdimage flow of water.

The aim of the invention "run of River dam hydroelectric power plant" is to eliminate the disadvantages of analog, as well as the creation of a new hydroelectric power station, which has several significant advantages over hydroelectric dams.

These advantages over hydroelectric dams are as follows:

- no flooding of large areas of fertile floodplain meadows and forests;

- there is no need to transfer from flooding under reservoir communications, housing, industrial plants, etc.;

- there are no obstacles for free shipping and fisheries;

- do not change the climatic conditions of the locality;

using cascade run-of-river hydroelectric dam, United in a common grid, as well as other environmentally friendly production of electricity, the possibility of ecological rehabilitation areas by reducing electricity generation at thermal power plants;

- the construction and use of run-of-river hydroelectric dam possible on any river: small, medium, and high consumption of water; in the absence of economic and hydrological contraindications on some rivers may ISOE is compared with hydroelectric dams, power. However, the use of cascade run-of-river hydroelectric dam, combined in a single power system, eliminates this disadvantage.

The essence of the invention "run of River dam hydroelectric power plant" consists in the following. This hydroelectric power station represents a hydraulic structure in the river, situated at one of the banks or between the shore and the island.

With the river upstream of a hydroelectric power station is divided into two streams by a vertical wall of the separator height slightly above the maximum water level in the river is in flood. The wall of the separator is constructed at an angle, for example 30 to 35oto the direction of flow, and forms a tapering direction, passing in the channel (the channel), and channel the flow velocity increases significantly, consequently, increases and kinetic energy of the flow, and the hydraulic wheel goes into a concrete channel through which the water rushes to the unit.

The wall of the separator at the beginning of the separation of the river flow has a hinged swinging door that can be installed at different angles to the direction of flow of the river for the separation of larger or smaller flow of water on hydroa the river at different times of the year.

Hydropower unit set, with the axis of the turbine in a horizontal plane perpendicular to the direction of flow of the stream of water with optimal submerged turbine, while hydropower unit set is stationary or on a metal pontoon, or two oppositely located concrete bases, forming an open rectangular box of ducts to water. If the off-water levels in the river do not have large quantities, it is quite acceptable option to install hydropower unit on two concrete bases that will not result in significant fluctuations in hydropower capacity.

If the off-water levels in the river have significant value, the more acceptable is the installation of a hydropower unit on the pontoon, placed in a chamber filled with concrete, created at the base of the powerhouse, and the pontoon has the possibility of vertical movement up and down in this chamber simultaneously with the raising or lowering of the water level in the river and thus ensure optimal capacity of the HPP.

In this case, between two pillars of the hydropower unit on the pontoon formed a kind of channel of rectangular shape, and two rectangular open top openings, equal to the width of the original channels on the pontoon.

And, finally, between the two opposite inner walls filled with concrete chambers and two corresponding opposite outer walls of the pontoon, forming tray ducts for water set, for example, pneumatic shock absorbers-seals to prevent wasteful consumption of water through cracks in the channel, as well as to prevent the accumulation of sand and silt filled with concrete in the camera.

In large rivers with a high consumption of water can be separated sufficiently large flow of water and direct it across multiple channels, respectively, with the same amount of hydropower units, not to identify any one unit, even if very high power (Fig.6).

List of figures in the drawings.

In Fig. 1 shows a plan diagram of the run-of-river dam hydroelectric - option selection part of the volume flow at one of the banks of the river.

In Fig. 2 shows in plan the scheme run-of-river dam hydroelectric - variant use of the river channel between the island and one of the shores.

In Fig. 3 shows in plan scheme Rurouni panorama run-of-river dam hydroelectric and navigable channel of the river.

In Fig. 5 shows in partial section of a hydropower plant on the pontoon (view a of Fig.1 rotated 90), as well as in the plan.

In Fig. 6 depicts a variant mnogoprovolochnogo channel with hydropower units in the plan.

The proposed run of river dam hydroelectric power plant consists of the following units, components and structures.

On the banks of the river, for example the left, construct a concrete wall 1, and in line construct a second concrete wall of the separator 2 at a certain distance from the wall 1 and aimed at a certain angle to the direction of flow, for example, 30-35o(Fig. 1).

The second wall can be built on the island (Fig.2).

The height of the walls 1 and 2 should be slightly above the maximum seasonal level I water in the river.

Thus constructing a narrowing channel, and in the narrowest place on the concrete base 3 made in the form of a tray with a rectangular base formed by two concrete pillars for mounting of generator 4 through the elastic coupling with 5 bladed turbine 6, the shaft of which has a bearing her second end of the bearing 7 (Fig.1).

A variant of construction of the proposed hydroelectric station of Agata part in the river has articulated swivel around a vertical axis, a shutter 9, which can be set at different angles to the direction of flow of the river to separate more or less of the total water flow of the river and areas on the unit and thereby to adjust (optimize) the capacity of hydropower in the periods of maximum and minimum levels of the river at different times of the year.

To prevent ice jams in a narrowing channel and in the channel when the ice of the proposed hydropower plant has a safety fence made of concrete piles 10 (Fig.3) scored on the river bottom and spaced from each other at a distance of, for example, 2,5 - 3 meters along the line, starting from the end of a rotating metal shutters 9 and directed at an angle of 150 - 155oto the shore filled with concrete wall.

During the ice flow, the water level in the river, usually close to the maximum seasonal and therefore the shutter 9 can be rotated maximally in the direction adjacent to the HPP shore and use it as an additional guard against the ice wall.

Hydropower unit GES can be installed on the pontoon 11 (Fig.5), which is afloat in filled with concrete chamber 12 formed in the base of the powerhouse and has the ability to move up and down in oteoporosis walls filled with concrete chambers and two corresponding opposite outer walls of the pontoon, located in the direction of water flow, install, for example, pneumatic shock absorbers-seals 13 (Fig. 5).

The proposed run of river hydroelectric dam works as follows.

The wall 1 and the wall of the separator 2 is formed by a narrowing of the channel through which the whole mass of water, bounded by two walls, at its widest point under the pressure of the flow of the river by the Bernoulli law, seeking to go through a narrowing channel, acquires acceleration and kinetic energy of water flow is greatly increased and the turbine is of the highest importance.

To create the optimum mode of operation of the hydropower unit weight of water, flowing along the narrowing channel regulate by establishing different angles to the direction of flow of the river sash 9 for separation from river flow optimum amount of water in a narrowing channel GES.

Thus, the proposed HPP can provide optimum operation of the hydropower unit at different seasonal water levels in the river and stably supply electricity to consumers.
