US_2019178228_A1

Resumen de: WO2019113177A1

System and methods for controlling the oscillation of floating ground stations in aerial wind turbine systems are disclosed. Thrusters on the ground station or on one or more aerial vehicles associated with the ground station apply a compensatory force to the oscillating ground station to reduce and/or substantially eliminate wave-induced oscillations. Submerged thrusters may also rotate the ground station to a preferred alignment direction with the waves. Additionally, control systems use environmental and/or positional sensor data to develop a predictive force profile that maps desired compensatory force magnitude versus time. The control systems use that predictive force profile to direct the thrusters to apply a varying compensatory force over time.

SELF-ALIGNING TO WIND FACING FLOATING PLATFORM SUPPORTING MULTI-WIND TURBINES AND SOLAR FOR WIND AND SOLAR POWER GENERATION AND THE CONSTRUCTION METHOD THEREON

NºPublicación: WO2019102434A1 31/05/2019

Solicitante:

WONG CARLOS [CN]
ZHUHAI KALUOSI MACAU ENG CONSULTANT LTD [CN]

Resumen de: WO2019102434A1

A self-aligning to the incoming wind floating platform supporting multiple wind turbines(17, 18) forms a wind power generation unit. Under horizontal wind, the wind load resultant passes the center of geometry of the wind load receiving areas (hereafter C.Geo) of the floating platform, but not the turning axis (15), resulting a yaw moment about the turning axis (15) to turn the floating platform until the wind load resultant passes through the C.Geo and the turning axis (15) simultaneously. A wind park or wind farm comprises at least one floating platforms capable of self-aligning to the incoming wind for electric power generation. The floating platform helps to reduce the mileage of the submarine power cable (44), hence reducing the electric resistance and subsequently heat loss, and reducing the cost of submarine power cables (44).

The hollow moving mass has a pump with a pump first end connected to the water with a first pump hose and a pump second end arranged within the hollow moving mass with a second pump hose. A plurality of sensors is arranged proximate the turbine shaft. A controller receives a movement data from the plurality of sensors and the adjusts the hollow moving mass to stabilize the floating wind turbine assembly.

LIFT-DRIVEN WIND TURBINE WITH FORCE CANCELING BLADE CONFIGURATION

NºPublicación: US2019136830A1 09/05/2019

Solicitante:

CONTINUUM DYNAMICS INC [US]

US_2016312765_PA

Resumen de: US2019136830A1

A lift-driven wind turbine has a turbine rotor with blades mounted to the turbine shaft by two struts hinged to the shaft and each blade to form a four-bar linkage. The blades' airfoil cross section generates lift that rotates the blades around the axis in the presence of a prevailing wind. The airfoil chord forms a geometric angle of attack αG relative to the tangent of the blade path and the struts orient the blades with an outward tilt angle γ. The turbine is designed with values of αG and γ that cause the lift generated by each blade to have an upward component that supports the blade against the force of gravity and a mean radially inward component that substantially balances centrifugal forces on the blade. Wind turbines designed according to the principles disclosed herein facilitate the construction of free-floating utility scale wind turbines for deep water installations.

Solicitante:

MERCER GUY NIGEL [GB]

Resumen de: WO2019073189A1

Apparatus (1) for harvesting wind energy on a large scale consists of an annular support structure (4), floating on a body of water (2), which can rotate about its hub (3). Multiple vertical aerofoil units (6, 76, 206), mounted at equal intervals around the support structure (4), can pivot independently about a vertical axis (17, 217). The aerofoil units (6, 76, 206) are each held at a suitable angle of attack relative to the ambient wind (7) by vertical canard aerofoils (13, 213) mounted to a boom (12, 212) extending forwards from a leading edge (10) of the main aerofoil (8, 208) of each aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206). A cam follower mechanism (21) in the pivot mounting of each aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206) directs the angle of attack of the canard aerofoils (13, 213), so that the angle of attack of the respective main aerofoil (8, 208) is optimised for the current position of the aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206) around the rotating support structure (4). The main aerofoils (8, 208) thus generate a torque causing the apparatus (1) to rotate. Electrical power is generated from the rotation of the apparatus (1), for example by generators at the hub (3).
