The invention relates to wind energy and can be used to produce unconventional clean and renewable wind energy and convert it into other forms of energy: electrical, mechanical, thermal, or their various combinations.

In the known methods of obtaining and using wind energy wind turbine as a rule, represents an integrated set of process equipment that includes, on the one hand, wind turbine blade aerodynamic type, perceiving the kinetic energy of the wind flow, on the other hand, the additional devices or device that converts wind energy into other forms of energy, which creates a number of serious shortcomings and limitations in operation.

For example, serious difficulties for the operation of the known wind turbines arise due to the limited dynamic range of wind speeds due to their significant non-uniformity in time. The lower and upper bounds of the dynamic range determines the minimum speed Vmin, which corresponds to the time of driving off the motionless propeller installation, and the maximum wind speed Vmaxwhere operation of the wind turbines must be stopped in order to prevent its destruction. Inside dynamic�th range is nominal wind speed V nthat provides the user with a calculated amount of energy. Taking the estimated annual average wind speed V0, it is possible to determine the speed VnVminand Vmaxby corresponding to the simple formula: Vn=K1·V0; Vmin=K2·V0; Vmax=K3·V0. Here K1, K2, K3defined empirically correction factors that depend on a number of factors, such as the topographic conditions of the terrain, height of the turbine above ground level, the design features of equipment and, in particular, the working body, and other factors. The estimated values of these coefficients lie within the following limits: K1=1,4÷2,0; K2=0,6÷0,8; K3=4÷5. For example, for calculation of average speed V0equal to 5 m/s, rated wind speed Vnwill be in the range of from 6 to 10 m/s, and the minimum and maximum speeds will be equal respectively to Vmin=3÷4 m/s and Vmax=20-25 m/s (see e.g. the book: Resources and the efficient use of renewable energy sources in Russia. Under the General editorship of L. P. Bezrukikh. - St. Petersburg, Nauka, 2002, ISBN 5-02-024971-8).

The limited dynamic range of wind speeds also significantly affects the conditions reliable�and uninterrupted power supply. So, at low wind speeds there is a deficiency of energy, which should be compensated by the energy produced by the backup power source, such as a diesel power plant or energy accumulated various kinds of batteries in the period of maximum wind speeds, when the wind turbine produces excess energy.

Are also systems that use various renewable sources in combination. Thus, the known from the patent DE 3407881 A1 integrated energy supply system, in which in addition to generating electrical energy from solar panels is extracted mechanical energy of the moving air flow through the propeller and turning it into electrical energy driven generator. The airflow occurs through the merger of the horizontal and rejected in the vertical direction of wind flow in the gap between the outer wall of the building and spaced from it by the solar radiation absorbers of heat from the plates of the absorber.

Also, according to the patent DE 2751341 A1 can be combined with all possible natural energy sources, and for the exploitation of wind energy only mentioned wind turbine.

Patent US 4079264 A describes a wind turbine, which is located at the narrowest point of the flow of air in to�Nala Venturi at the point of highest speed and low pressure. The impeller is located mainly in the field of low pressure to create the flow to the impeller of the turbine in a different location.

Such combined energy supply systems are characterized by a significant weight and size indicators, occupied large industrial areas, high construction and operating cost, low efficiency in the range of 5-30% and the high costs of energy.

Finally, the limited dynamic range of wind speeds preclude the use in the whole volume of the energy potential of wind energy, negatively affecting the value of the coefficient of energy conversion (KPI). So, it is known that the existing petrushansky can use only 20-30% of the available wind resources (see, for example, a book: A. N. Starks, etc. wind Atlas of Russia. The Ministry Of Energy Of Russia. - M., 2000, ISBN 5-7542-0067-6).

Thus, known methods for receiving and converting wind energy with the above-mentioned significant disadvantages, do not meet the requirements to be met by modern energy process.

From applied aerohydromechanics a method of producing and converting energy of the air flow ejected pressurized water flow through phase transformations, of course� the purpose of which is the formation of two-phase (water + air) environment. Last at a certain quantitative ratio of the phases and the local velocity is accelerated to supersonic speed in specially profiled channels. This movement occurs with the shocks, accompanied by an abrupt increase in the pressure and temperature of the fluid, which then turns into a subsonic flow (see e.g. the book: E. Y. Sokolov, N. M. Singer. Jet devices. - 3-e Izd., Perera - M., Energoatomizdat, 1989, ISBN 5-283-00079-6).

Based on the above considerations, as a prototype of the selected technical solution, which describes a method of converting into the compressed air of atmospheric air in the process of ejection of the pressurized flow of water (see e.g. the book: B. F. Lamai. Water-jet pumps and installation. L.: Engineering. Of Leningrad. Office, 1988, pp. 232-237, ISBN 5-217-00278-6).

From this same source it is known a device for implementing this method, comprising a pump, a water-jet device, made with the possibility of ejection of atmospheric air tank receiver for separating water from compressed air, suction and discharge piping, and control valves.

The main disadvantage of the known method and device for its implementation is a limited application only in still air and the inability to obtain and the number of�tion energy speed of wind flows, as varieties of air flow, with high rates of energy conversion (KPI) while also ensuring high efficiency of the device.

The aim of the present invention is to increase KPIs at the expense of obtaining and wind energy conversion over a wide dynamic range from abnormally small, near zero speeds, up to extremely high for the area speeds, further increasing the efficiency of the device by refraining from the use of inefficient wind turbine blade, reduce the weight and performance of the device and its occupied production area, increase reliability, uninterrupted power supply of consumers different types of energy.

This goal is achieved using the combination of features of the main claims and the dependent claims representing the preferred Supplement. The invention is explained followed by a description of the method of utilization of wind energy on the example of the attached drawing, showing the outline of the device.

Fig.1 shows a variant of the wind power device for implementing the method of obtaining wind energy and convert it into other forms of energy (electrical, mechanical, thermal, or their different combinations), which includes hydraulic installation 1, asteasu� from the pump unit 2, composed of dynamic vane pump, preferably a centrifugal pump 3 and the actuator 4, tank-receiver 5, comprising a housing 6, a bottom 7 and the cover 8 together forming an internal cavity: the lower hydraulic 9 and upper 10 pneumatic cavity, and a water-jet device 11 containing the working chamber 12, a Central tapered nozzle 13, the mixing chamber 14 and the diffuser 15.

Hydraulic unit 1 is additionally equipped with metropilitan 16, containing sequentially arranged on the movement of the air flow petroselinic 17, a housing 18 with an air channel 19 and the outlet 20 with a check valve 21, a hydraulic energy Converter 22 with a hydraulic turbine 23, a shaft 24 which is made with the possibility of connection to an electric generator with 25 or other mechanical load 26, a pneumatic energy Converter 27 with pneumatic turbine 28, the PTO shaft 29 which, in turn, made with the possibility of connection with the electric generator 30 or other mechanical load 31.

The outlet 20 of microsilica 16 radially or tangentially attached to the jetting apparatus 11 in its cross-section. The output 32 of the hydraulic turbine 23 short pipe 33 equipped with a regulating device 34 and clicks�entirely the valve 35, connected to the tank receiver 5 through the bottom 7, and the entrance 36 to the pneumatic turbine 28 via a three-way valve 37 with the release 38 is connected to the atmosphere by a duct 39 to the tank receiver 5 through the cover 8. The pump 3 is connected with the suction conduit 40, equipped with a regulating device 41 and check valve 42, with tank-receiver 5, and the discharge conduit 43 with other regulating device 41 is connected to the jetting apparatus 11.

In the inlet pipe 40 is mounted boiler 44, which is placed inside the heat exchanger 45, for example a coil in communication with the straight pipes 46 and 47 return flow of the coolant - water system of water heating and/or another heat exchanger 48 in communication with the supply pipes to the cold water 49, and the discharge of hot water 50 hot water system.

The output from air turbine 28 is connected to the distribution unit 51 air heating systems.

Microsilica 16 wind power generating apparatus installed in a number n≥1 into the wind, and their rectilinear longitudinal or curved axis 52 can be located relative to the longitudinal axis 53 of the water-jet apparatus 11 at the angle β satisfying the condition of 180°≥β≥0°. The drawing shows a variant of the wind power unit with one (n=1) Petroselinum 16, the longitudinal axis 52 which is under direct�the second angle (β=90°) to the longitudinal axis 53 of the water-jet apparatus 11.

The air channel of each microsilica in the course of the air flow is made convergent if the following geometric conditions: F1=(10÷100)F2; 24°≥α≥8°, where F1, F2and α are the input area, respectively, (1-1) and output (2-2) cross sections and the angle of confusingly air channel.

The housing 18 may be made of a waterproof and airtight material. The cross section can be made of any, but mostly round shape.

In the hydraulic chamber 9 tank-receiver 5 with the possibility of maximizing the interface of mediums water - compressed air is installed inclined partition wall 54.

For regulation of flow and pressure and to prevent reverse movement of the fluid provided control valves 34 and 41 and the check valves 35 and 42. The control and measurement of performance of a wind power device is carried out through the following instrumentation: pressure gauges 55, the flow meter 56, the heat meter 57 and 58 thermometers installed according to the accepted Rules of installation and operation of these devices.

At the entrance to petroselinic 17 equipped with safety screen 59 to protect from falling debris and foreign objects.

A method of producing wind energy and convert it into other types of energy�and (electrical, mechanical, thermal, or their different combinations) is that the air flow is forced to accelerate in verosimile 16, and then in the mixing chamber 14 of the jetting apparatus 11 accelerated airflow is mixed with the feed pump 3 accelerated pressurized water flow, thereby intensifying the process of formation of a supersonic air-flow, the movement of which comes with the shocks, accompanied by an abrupt increase of pressure and temperature. After the diffuser 15 converts the two-phase flow at the outlet of the water-jet apparatus 11 in subsonic pressure air / water flow with excess hydraulic energy and thermal energy. Most of excess hydraulic energy of the pressurized air / water flow of energy through a hydraulic energy Converter 22 is converted into electrical energy by attaching to the PTO shaft 24 of the hydraulic turbine electric generator 23 25, or in other forms of energy, adding to the PTO shaft 24 a different mechanical load 26. After the hydraulic energy Converter 22 of the pressurized air / water flow of energy from residual hydraulic thermal energy is subjected to separation in the tank receiver 5, separating the compressed air, which accum�lyout in the air cavity 10, from water, which is collected in the hydraulic chamber 9. The residual energy of compressed air through pneumatic Converter 27 extra energy is converted into electrical energy by attaching to the PTO shaft 29 of the pneumatic turbine 28 electric generator 30, or mechanical energy, by attaching to the same shaft PTO 29 other mechanical load 31.

Hot compressed air as the coolant is directed after exiting the pneumatic turbine 28 to the distribution unit 51 air heating systems. Hot water as the coolant in the suction pipe 40 is directed into the boiler 44. In the last place the heat exchanger 45 in communication with the straight pipes 46 and 47 return hot water as those used by the circulation of the coolant in a hot water heating system, and/or place another heat exchanger 48 in communication with the supply pipes to the cold water 49, and the discharge of hot water 50 through which carry out the operation of hot water system.

The forced acceleration of the air flow perform a dynamic range of 1:100, equal to the ratio of the minimum to the maximum wind velocity in the inlet section (1-1).

The pressurized water flow to the water-jet apparatus 11 create using a pump unit 2, carrying�, the power supply is in a starting mode from the electric storage device power or from an independent power source or from the network, and in an operating mode using a portion of electricity generated, and the drive is assembled with a device for controlling the number of revolutions in ensuring optimal operating characteristics of the pump unit in the conditions of non-uniformity of the wind speed by changing the number of revolutions, by decreasing or increasing the number of revolutions of the drive accordingly when reducing or increasing wind speed.

Wind power generating device operates as follows. With the inclusion of the work of the pump unit 2: water pressure pipe 43 is fed into a Central tapered nozzle 13 water-jet apparatus 11. At the exit of the nozzle 13, the jet velocity increases and the pressure drops. This creates a vacuum in the working chamber 12, where the water stream is accelerated airflow generated from the wind flow. Last through petroselinic 17 microsilica 16 enters the housing 18 with an air duct 19 of the convergent shape, the area of F1the entrance of which is larger than the area of F2output. As a result of such constructive execution of the converging channel 19 will take place the following aerodynamic terms: P1>R2; V1<V2;ρ2V22/2>ρ1 V12/2where P, V, ρV2/2 and ρ - respectively the pressure, velocity, kinetic energy and density of the air environment. The indices 1 and 2 refer respectively to the input (1-1) and output (2-2) cross sections.

Thus, in accordance with the above hydrodynamic conditions in the working chamber 12 is optimal for the ejection of the accelerated air flow is also accelerated water stream. Next, in the mixing chamber 14, the intensive mixing of water with air. This results in a water-and-air mixture, the speed of sound which is much below the speed of sound in single-phase water flow. Consequently, at the entrance to the diffuser 15, the movement of a supersonic air-stream, the more accelerated the velocity of sound will occur with shocks, which at the same time, irregular pressure and temperature. As you progress in the diffuser 15, the cross sectional area of which increases from the input to the output section, a supersonic flow at the exit of the diffuser 15 is transformed into the subsonic pressure air / water stream energy with excess hydraulic energy defined by the sum of potential and kinetic energy, as well as from�tochnoi thermal energy, whereby the temperature of the pressurized air / water flow of energy depending on the pressure reaches 80-120°C at a heating temperature of about 0.5-2°C per minute.

After the water-jet apparatus 11 subsonic pressure air / water flow energy flows into hydraulic energy Converter 22, where a PTO shaft 24 of the hydraulic turbine 23 drives the electric generator 25 for generating electrical energy and/or other working mechanism 26 for the production of mechanical energy. At this stage use a large part of the hydraulic energy of the pressurized air / water flow energy. After the hydraulic energy Converter 22 of the pressurized air / water flow of energy carrier with significant residual thermal and hydraulic energy by a short conduit 33 enters the tank receiver 5. Here the compressed air separates from the water and accumulates in the upper pneumatic cavity 10, and water is collected in the lower hydraulic chamber 9. Compressed air as it accumulates and achieve the design pressure via a three-way valve 37 and conduit 39 is supplied to pneumatic energy Converter 27, wherein the PTO shaft 29 of the pneumatic turbine 28 drives the electric generator 30 and/or another p�operating mechanism 31 for additional production of electricity and/or other energy.

thermal energy of the pressurized air / water flow after hydraulic energy Converter energy in the tank receiver 5 is conventionally divided into thermal energy of water in the hydraulic chamber 9 and thermal energy of the compressed air in the pneumatic cavity 10, and the temperature of both media is about the same.

In the illustrated embodiment, the implementation of hot water as the coolant passes through the suction pipe 40 into the boiler 44, which through the heat exchanger 45, reported by the direct pipelines 46 and 47 return flow of the coolant - water is heating circulating water used for space heating. Additionally or alternatively, the heater comprises a heat exchanger 48 for heating the drinking water that flows through the cooling water pipe 49 and is given to the consumer by pipeline hot water 50.

thermal energy of hot compressed air as the coolant is mainly used for air heating purposes, for which hot, compressed air is supplied to the distribution unit 51 air heating systems, and distributed among the users or individual consumers. Obviously, the number of received hot air will be equal to the amount of air that was taken by vetroceramica 17 microsilica. If necessary excess pressure of the compressed air can be reduced, which is vented to the atmosphere through three-way valve 37 through the issuance of 38.

The present invention is in the aggregate of major and minor characters allows to use wind energy with high values of energy conversion over a wide dynamic range from abnormally low wind speeds of 0.5 m/sec, up to extremely high speeds of 50 km/h, which can't be used with modern wind turbines.

The non-use bladed wind turbines in the proposed method leads to a sharp increase reliability and efficiency of the wind power plant while reducing the weight and dimensions, as well as the necessary manufacturing facilities.

In addition, the input parameters of the pump unit with adjustable electric drive are always in the optimum energy saving mode regardless of fluctuations in wind speed, because shocks are not returning the change of the output fluidic and temperature parameters of the energy source.

Of particular importance is also the fact that the energy processes occurring in the proposed method of obtaining wind energy and its transformation, can be easily implemented in various�to link scales that allows you to build a series of wind turbines with high technical and economic indicators in kilowatt and megawatt range.

Industrial applicability is given in a wide scope: in the systems of energy supplies for various purposes, in heating systems and hot water supply of settlements and industrial enterprises, as well as in small-sized wind power plants, such as consumer portable or stationary power generation and/or water heating devices.
