new power engine concept

Recommended Posts

SeaPower description

Attached is a diagram that details a new energy generating power source using the expanding rise of air underwater as a lifting force.

This is the same principal that keeps a boat afloat.

In the diagram, there is a linear row of balloons. The lower balloon or inverted umbrella; is injected with 300 cubic feet of air compressed to 18 ATM resulting in a volume of 16.66 cubic feet of air.

When the first balloon rises 99 feet (3 ATM) a second balloon attached to the first one is injected with 300 cubic feet of air compressed to 16.66 cubic feet of air.

In the diagram provided this process is repeated having five (5) balloons rising. The upper balloon at 3 ATM has a lifting force of 6.400 pounds

The next balloon at 6 ATM has a lifting force of 3,200 pounds

The next balloon at 9 ATM has a rising force of 2,133 pounds

The next balloon at 12 ATM has a lifting force of 1,600 pounds

The next balloon at 15 ATM has a lifting force of 1,080 pounds

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Total pulling force is a continuous lifting force of 14,413 pounds

Principles to run the machine

 [1] an enclosed container (X) of air submerged in water has a lifting force (Y) equal to the volume of the water displaced minus the weight of the container; [yes] [no]

[2] connection multiple containers one on top of the other creates a combined lifting force of (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)+ (Y)

Which is a greater lifting force than (Y); [yes] [no]

[3] the energy needed to fill one container is equal to the energy needed to sustain the combined lifting force of the 10 (ten) containers referenced above minus the energy needed to keep it running.

; [yes] [NO]

Hello.

can you show a calculation of the energy required to run the machine compared to the energy it generates? Intuition says there will be no net power generated.

(But I may have misinterpreted the principle behind the devices)

Unfortunately you can't steal energy from gravity(buoyancy = weight of displaced fluid). Going to at best break even, but will likely take more energy overall than you get back out.

What about compressing the air ?
How much energy does that use ?

I would say exactly the same as putting that much weight on balloons, to submerge them to an equal depth, and re-compress the air.

So what is in the balloon before the pressurised air is injected?

If you say nothing, it is just floppy, then a considerable amount of energy is expended expanding the volume from nothing to 16.66 cuft against the pressure of the water at that depth.

How have you allowed for this?

Slowing down the Earth's rotation among other effects. Trading is okay, stealing is not.

It would be an interesting exercise to work out how much energy you would need to extract to cause, say, an extra leap second to be needed.

You can't break even.

Every significant part of the process requires a net increase of entropy. (degradation of available energy)

But, if you have a sufficient source of compressed air at the bottom, or heat for the balloons at the right point/s in the cycle, then you have, in principle at least, a system that can harness that available energy source. Just don't waste your money on a patent without confirming those sources are available, and ascertaining that's the best way to harvest it.

It would be. I'm sure it'd take a ton to speed up that process. I've read a few analysis saying we could power our civilization for a thousand years with just a bit of that energy.

 This mechanical process can be converted to electrical output.

If it takes less power to keep the system running than the output created; then this is a positive idea. If not; this is a dead horse with nowhere to go.

See diagram in next post.

I want to discuss the mechanics of the system and whether it could produce useful work. 

The speed of the rising bubbles  needs to be calculated along with other variables

I came here because this is where the brightest of the bright congreate

Blowing up a balloon and letting it rise doesn’t generate power.

That is one of the reasons I came here. There are a number of calculations that need to be done before its potential can be determined.

That's why I am here.

It is the combined lifting force of the ten balloons that generates the real power. While it only talks the energy to blow up one balloon at a time to keep the system running.

It generates no net power. In reality, it will take more energy to run, owing to inefficiencies

It takes energy to compress 300 cubic feet of air to 18 ATM. When losses are accounted for there will be more power needed to run the system than it will generate.

Can you define it so that it can be calculated?
