Method of pumped storage

FIELD: construction; power industry.

SUBSTANCE: method of pumped storage includes localisation of underground pumped storage, for example identification of depth and volume of water formations or natural or commercial underground pressure-tight vessels, underground vessel pumping with water by pressure well due to either pressure created while free-flow water running in well, or when water is pumped. The hydraulic power well, which is also a water conduit, is drilled to water drain for example to culvert or water removal or absorption area. Hydraulic power well is selected so that it could cross or link with underground hydraulic storage vessel above water drain. Water level in hydraulic power well is to be above water drain, for example culvert roof or water removal or absorption area. Hydraulic power well is drilled so that it could accommodate hydraulic power set below water level or provide for hydraulic power set installing in culvert with connection to well outlet. Electrical cable or pipeline for selected energy resource transporting is installed in hydraulic power well from hydraulic power set to energy consumer. Surface water may be used for storage. Surface water is occurred during freshet periods due to, for example pressure well connection with surface ponds. This connection of hydraulic storage vessel with water drain area may be terminated in the required periods using, for example extractable packer, installed in hydraulic power well below the point of underground hydraulic storage connection.

EFFECT: potential of using water from underground hydraulic storage to generate energy resources, thermal or electrical energy.

The method of generation; pumped storage; relates to energy and can be used to enable use of the potential accumulated in the tank underground generation; pumped storage; water for subsequent production of energy (heat or electricity) in the conditions in which the surface hidroakumuliacine is technically difficult to implement, economically or environmentally inappropriate or invalid.

The known method of surface accumulation of water by creating rivers dam storage reservoir (Malinin NICHOLAS Theoretical fundamentals of hydraulic engineering. M, Energoatomizdat, 1985, [1]). The water level in the reservoir (upstream of the dam) is higher than the level on the downstream side, and the difference of these levels, a component of hydroelectric power, is the energy intierra base hydropower facilities, such as hydroelectric power. But this method of surface generation; pumped storage; has drawbacks.

The disadvantage of this method generation; pumped storage; is that to provide hydraulic and electrical power hydroelectric power station by increasing the pressure of the natural source of water, usually a river, for the education of the reservoir required the construction of a dam. The dam hydroelectric-activity cost. In addition, when the equipment of the dam and the consequent increase of water level with its pressure side connected to the following negative consequences: flooding areas along the banks of the river, often representing fertile agricultural land; deforestation and the removal of economic activity of hunting grounds; environmental changes associated with the formation of reservoirs of large volumes; significant costs associated with the transfer of the settlements, engineering structures from the flood zone, and site preparation of the future reservoir. The negative effects linked well as the diversion of funds for the construction of a dam and a reservoir. In more negative consequences of building dams to create reservoirs occur in lowland areas. In the construction of dams on small rivers complexity of their operation in conditions of sharply continental climate is associated with seasonal changes - freezing rivers and their flood during the flood period. In addition, there is a method of generation; pumped storage; are used as source water, surface water, usually rivers, which significantly restricts the conditions for its application.

The known method of artificial regulation of groundwater by replenish their stocks (Gordeev PV, Samilkina VA, Shulakova O.K. Hydrogeology. M., "Higher school", 1990, str-325, [1]). The method includes work on artificial replenishment of groundwater reserves and pre is scheduled to increase operating margins for different types of water use, to compensate for the increased local groundwater abstraction in certain periods due to water underground tanks, which play the role of regulating reservoirs, and for mutual regulation of groundwater and surface water and the other Way is closest to the proposed and adopted for the prototype. It includes determining the location of the tanks underground generation; pumped storage; such as depth and volume of water enclosing rocks or underground, pressurized tanks natural or industrial executed, the drilling of the injection well or wells to her and communicated with a source of water, filling through the injection well capacity underground accumulation of water or due to the pressure of the free (non-pressure) flow of water in the well, or when it is injected.

There is a method of generation; pumped storage; adopted for the prototype, has a drawback. It is not possible to use the potential accumulated in the tank underground generation; pumped storage; water exercise to develop energy - electric or thermal energy.

The technical result, which is aimed by the invention is to eliminate typical known method of accumulating disadvantage is the possibility of using the potential of accumulare is Anna in the capacity of an underground accumulation of water to produce thermal or electrical energy.

This is achieved by the fact that in the known method generation; pumped storage; including positioning capacity generation; pumped storage; underground, such as depth and volume of water enclosing rocks or underground, pressurized tanks natural or industrial executed, the drilling of the injection well or wells to her and communicated with a source of water, filling through the injection well capacity underground accumulation of water or due to the pressure of the free (non-pressure) flow of water in the well, or when it is pumping, Buryats (or provide drilling) which conduit hydropower the well to water flow, such as tunnels or areas of her care (including acquisitions), and the track hydropower well chosen such that it is above the water flow was crossed capacity underground generation; pumped storage; or communicated with her, and when water levels in hydropower well provide higher water flow, for example the roof of the tunnel or its care (absorption), and the hydropower well perform with the possibility of installing it below the water level of gidroenergoproekta or install it, for example, in the tunnel with connecting it to the exit bore, and hydropower well either in the adit install the cable or t is unaproved for transportation of produced energy from gidroenergoproekta to energopotrebitel.

For generation; pumped storage; can be used for surface water generated during flood periods, for example, by indicating the capacity of generation; pumped storage; underground injection wells with surface waters during these periods.

In the required periods, the message capacity of the underground generation; pumped storage; zone water flow can be interrupted, for example, using retrievable packer installed in hydropower well below its message capacity underground generation; pumped storage;.

Drilling of additional hydropower well, which in its upper part communicates with the capacity of the underground generation; pumped storage; and in the bottom area of the water flow, allows you to generate the flow of water through the channel wells "top-down". However depending on the design of bore sizes, parameters describing the message capacity of the underground generation; pumped storage; with well, as well as the parameters of the zone of flow in the well is installed, the flow of water with a certain flow rate Q and the dynamic level Nd. Below Nd the flow of water is continuous. The pressure of the "pillar" of water flow NN is characterized by the distance from the dynamic level to the place (zone) water flow (or where possible install downhole gidroenergoproekta). The hydraulic capacity of the stream water is in the setup of gidroenergoproekta well N g(W) can be determined from the following expression (Karelin VA and other Hydroelectric station./Under the editorship of Prof. Karelin VA and Krivchenko GN. M, Energoatomizdat, 1987, [3]):

where P is the pressure of water flow in the installation place gidroenergoproekta, PA;

ρ - the density of water, kg/m3;

q is the acceleration of gravity, m/s2;

Q is the water flow rate, m3/s

Hydraulic power flow in the setup of gidroenergoproekta can be converted using downhole hydroelectric power plants, for example, U.S. patent (Generation of electricity during the injection of a denste fluid into a subterranean formation. Patent US 4132269 And CL. E 21 In 43/20, F 03 G 7/04, publ. 02.01.1979,, [4]) into electrical energy or using downhole hydrotalcite, for example, by analogy with teplovodenergiya well (the application for the invention of the Russian Federation "Teplovodenergiya well" 2005100306/03(000326), IPC E 03 In 3/00, F 24 H 4/02, author Elisha A.D. the Decision to grant a patent dated 23.05.2006,, [5]) into thermal energy.

In cases where the area of flow is perebranny roof below the gallery, can be simplified technical implementation of the process of ensuring the production of energy. This can be used for General industrial hydropower equipment not limited by the hole size (sravnenie with its installation in the borehole). In addition, the "spent" in hydroelectricity water then sent for water consumption are laid in the adit pipeline and is not withdrawn from circulation, as it often happens in the case of borehole installation.

Use for generation; pumped storage; surface water during flood periods, for example, by indicating the capacity of generation; pumped storage; underground injection wells with surface waters during these periods to reduce the amount of flood waters and the associated negative consequences from their influence.

Termination message capacity underground generation; pumped storage; zone water flow within the required periods, for example, when stopping the downhole gidroenergoproekta can reduce unsustainable water use.

In the practical implementation of the proposed method generation; pumped storage; select the appropriate geological environment in the earth. Increasingly acceptable for this are sandstones, outsole which presents water-resistant rocks, such as clays. In this example, the capacity of the underground generation; pumped storage; (next EPG) - 1 - represented by Sandstone, below which is clay. To the EPG drilled injection wells 4. The bottom of the casing injection wells 4 preparerow the n holes 7. The upper part of the casing injection wells also perforated holes. At the upper end of the casing injection wells 4 installed and fixed by welding perforated ring 4.1, holes 4.2 which align with the holes in the casing pipe injection wells 4. With a perforated ring 4.2 paired rotary perforated cylinder 5 with perforations 5.1 figure 2 - (a node I, figure 1). Moreover, in one position of the rotary perforated cylinder 5 5.1 holes in it and the holes in the casing pipe injection wells 4 are the same - the "open"position and in another position do not coincide - the "closed"position. The position of the rotary cylinder 5 is achieved by the regulation, including the implementation of the water supply, or the termination of a water source 3 to the injection well 4 and later in the EPG. The water in the well is moving from a source of water down it and through the perforations in the lower part of the tube enters the permeable interval EPG. Driving force for implementation the movement of water and fill the permeable interval EPG is either the pressure of the water stream formed by the free movement of water (from a water source, down to the EPG), or, if conditions warrant it, the pump unit (conventionally not shown). Similar designs and other injection wells at wells are channels of water flowing from the source 3 in the EPG. The EPG via injection wells are filled with water.

For the production of energy - electricity or thermal energy by using the proposed method generation; pumped storage; it also provides for the drilling (or designing drilling) hydropower wells 6. The trajectory of her route is that it peleburan EPG and then she drilled to a zone of discharge. Area runoff is either the absorption zone 13, or the galleries (site III in figure 1, POS figure 5 and 6). In the output range EPG hydropower well 6 lined pipe, in which the perforated interval.

Water filled her EPG 7 through the perforations in hydropower wells 5 comes into it and then it moves down the channel of the well to the zone of flow 13. In the absence of the well or in the underlying tunnel gidroenergoproekta (or for other reasons stop energy use downhole hydropower flow) flow in the borehole below the EPG block retrievable packer (Volkov, A.S., Tevzadze, R.N. Plugging exploration wells. M., Nedra, 1986, str, RES., [6]) figure 3 - site II in figure 1. When installing a packer him down in the hole without rotation to a predetermined depth. The weight indicator drilling rig to determine the weight of the tool and the string of drill pipe pump pump water up to D. the effect of 2.5-3.0 MPa, so the piston 18.2 moves to the lowest position and transmits the pressure to the flange 18.8. Rubber element 18.9 shrinks and closes the wellbore. In this lock securely holds the sealing element in a compressed state and is a device that overlap with the wellbore. It stops the movement of water from an EPG in the area of flow and provides water conservation, eliminating unproductive it (water) loss.

To raise the extracted node of the packer from the well to reduce the hydraulic pressure within the drill pipe string, attaching the axial load 8-12 kN with simultaneous right rotation. After separation of the two nodes of the packer is retrieved node is lifted from the well.

To generate electricity using downhole hydro (site III in figure 1) in hydropower well below the EPG over the area of the flow set downhole unit, shown in figure 4. For this step the expanded bore hole 11 using the main winch with special managed capture down the unit representing the United downhole generator 9 and the turbine 10. After run and set in place the unit capture winch disconnect from the tip 12. Simultaneously with the lowering into the well of the unit using the second l is bedke, parallel with the main winch, well down the electric cable electric generator, the other end of which is connected to formirovanie-switchgear 9.3 installed on the surface. After installation of the downhole unit in the well it is working, the principle of which consists in the following. Under the influence of water flow in the well of the turbine rotor 10 rotates, the rotation from it is transmitted is connected to the anchor downhole generator 9. Last produced electricity, which cable 9.1 transmitted to formirovanie-switchgear 9.3 installed on the surface. The downhole power generator is made of oil-filled.

Thus, in the present invention water from a surface source 3 through injection wells 4 (in this example, the bore diameter of 89 mm 12 pieces) through the perforations 7 is fed in the EPG, fills it, forming underground water reserves.

In this example, the EPG is located at a depth of 320 m, its length is 530 m, and the capacity of 80-90 meters the Amount of water that can be allocated EPG, is 0.68 m3.

Hydropower hole 6 drilled with a diameter of 240 mm, its depth amounted to 772 m

After estanblishing unit under hydropower well in its operation of the EPG it enters the water, which establishes the flow of water with a flow rate of Q=0.02 m3/c. In the well established dynamic level Hd=322 m Level pressure Hn=450 m

Taking into account the established parameters of water flow in a borehole, according to the formula (1) can be determined by its hydraulic capacity, which is

For this example: ρ=103kg/m3; q=9.8 m/s2; Nn=450 m; Q=0.02 m3/s After substituting in the formula will get

Ng=103kg/m3· 9.8 m/s2· 450 m · 0.02 m3= 88200 W = 88,2 kW.

Thus, the hydraulic power flow in hydropower well in zone water flow is 88.2 kW.

With this amount of water equal to Q=0.02 m3/s, the volume of accumulated water in the EPG enough to work for 393 days. While at rated load unit using accumulated in the EPG water (0,68 m3) will be developed 513860 kW·h of electricity.

When using downhole hydroelectric power plants, for example, U.S. patent (Generation of electricity during the injection of a denste fluid into a subterranean formation. Patent US 4132269 And class. E 21 In 43/20, F 03 G 7/04, publ. 02.01.1979,, [4]) achievable with its efficiency, equal η=(0,75-0,85) at its output, the above hydraulic flow, can the t to be generated electric energy capacity of N e=65 kW. The electricity produced by an electrical cable 9.1 (1), hydropower installed in the well, is transmitted to the surface to formirovanie-switchgear 9.3.

In the well can be installed and borehole vortex generator of the disc type, for example (application for invention of the Russian Federation "Teplovodenergiya well" 2005100306/03(000326), IPC E 03 In 3/00, F 24 H 4/02, author Elisha A.D. the Decision to grant a patent dated 23.05.2006,, [5]), the hot water which flows in the downstream zone of the flow represented by galleries, which further established the pipeline to teplopotreblajus. The power generated from this thermal energy can be determined on the basis of the above hydraulic power flow in the borehole and the efficiency of the vortex heat generator.

Installing gidroenergoproekta possible and in the downstream zone of the flow represented by galleries (site IV in figure 1), in particular vortex heat-generator - 5 - or hydroelectricity - 6, this can be achieved by a technical advantage. It lies in the fact that for the production of energy can be used equipment, including General, the dimensions of which are not limited by the hole size (in comparison with a variant of its installation in the borehole). Another Avenue is the property of this scheme is that water after gidroenergoproektom not lost in the absorption zone, and the pipe installed in the tunnel, she goes to water or teplopotreblajus and not withdrawn from circulation.

In addition to the technical result, which is provided by the invention, its use allows you to:

to create hydropower potential without flooding and removal from land surface lands and territories, which is typical for dam storage create carrying;

to create hydropower potential and unproblematic to use it year-round in conditions of sharply continental climate, this allows you to be free from the known difficulties arising from the operation of dam storage of small and micro hydropower plants on small rivers in winter periods, including those associated with the freezing of watercourses;

- flood periods to accumulate water in the tanks underground generation; pumped storage; and to reduce the amount of flood flooding and to reduce the negative effects of flood flows (floods, destruction and other), and in mountain conditions - mud.

It is known (Pekhtin V.A., Fedorov LM, tolchenov AV, Murin L.A., Zwick A.M. to convert the energy of water for hydropower in the energy of hydrogen. The journal "Hydraulic engineering", №1, 2006, p.33., [7], that more than 50 % of the annual water flow is formed in the flood period. The accumulation of water during flood periods (usually spring and summer periods of the year) allows you to create an inventory for later use during peak demand generated using the accumulated water resources (usually autumn and winter periods of the year, in particular, for heat generation). Underground hidroakumuliacine allows, to a certain extent, to eliminate the contradiction arising from the fact that the greatest influx of water occurs in the summer season, and the greatest demand for energy that can be produced using water and gidroenergoproekta in autumn-winter. This preemptive circumstance it is important to use the inventions in the areas of so-called Northern territories, and its use will reduce the volumes of supplies of fuel and, consequently, reduce the cost of implementation of the Northern territories.

The use of the invention allows to expand possibilities of use of non-conventional renewable energy sources (RES).

The method can be used for non-energy purposes.

FIELD: hydraulic engineering; fish protective facilities.

SUBSTANCE: invention is designed to draw off young fish from zone of influence of water diversion front. Method comes to ejecting young fish into intake part of ejecting plant from section of pond with higher concentration of young fish, creating active ejecting working stream in mixing chamber by entraining volume of water containing young fish into stream created by central ejecting hydraulic jet and further conveyance of water-fish mixture along pressure conduit into fish outlet. At the last stage of conveyance young fish is transported into fish outlet under no pressure conditions by forming hydraulic jet angle to trough of fish outlet, young fish being dropped on surface of fish outlet stream. Invention provides effective conditions for drawing off young fish into fish outlet and reduces damage to young fish. If working ejecting stream is preliminarily saturated with atmospheric air, its outer borders are saturated with air in form of finest microbubbles which form boundary layer ("air cushion") at contact with which young fish do not suffer from discomfort and easily take up hydrodynamic pressure built in mixing chamber. Moreover, provision of boundary layer saturated with microbubbles of air makes it possible to considerably reduce value of friction coupling of two streams, main getting from working nozzle and ejecting, containing young fish.
