can install the apparatus in front of a dam and use high towers on the
bank of the river up to reaching the sea.
wide range is giving a big use of the water hundreds times other than the
using of turbines "the conventional way".
this way we can increase the capacity of a dam and change the river
direction to other areas for agriculture by using the water in irrigation
after the emptying of tanks
second use of the storing apparatus:
can be used to store energy for a solar plant; as we have no limits on
storing which will make the solar energy more feasible and reliable. and
the cost of making the apparatus will compete with the conventional
batteries, as they require high technology and scarce expensive materials
other than the longevity of the simple apparatus that will serve for tens
of years with a little maintenance needs. As shown in the patent.
a third way:
can use the storing way for making a good use of any unstable energy
source like tidal or wind.
this we can have as an example about 50 windmills to lift two weights one
after the other and we will have a third one as a stand by. If the wind
will stop completely for a long time we still have stored energy in the
weights, so the consumers will have the current from the lowering of the
weights always, this will make a steady current and more we can have some
units as a stand by.
a Fourth Use:
can use the storing way in saving some energy that usually goes in heat
when there is a surplus or a shortage on the main lines that will come
from installing the storing apparatus near a transforming station.
when we have surplus or when there is cheap electricity during nights or
seasons we will connect the electric motor to the main line and lift the
weight to store the energy. Later their will be a shortage then we will
let the weight come down pulling the generator to produce more energy that
is needed at once. This matter will occur during the 24 hours or during
the seasons, where there will be a loss of millions of dollars on
this situation on daily manner.
have two good examples working now, the first one:
EDISON MISSION ENERGY COMPANY
house, lakeside Business Vilage, St. David's Park,Ewloe, Flintshire CH5
they have a water reservoir in the top of a mountain and another one at
the bottom. They circulate the water up and down by using turbines when
there is cheap electricity they pump the water up, and when there is
shortage they start the turbine to produce electricity.
difference is that in the storing apparatus is that we use weights that is
more feasible and with no limits.
second is in the USA it uses the surplus of water to a reservoir then when
needed they operate the turbines to produce electricity, it is:
on the Tennessee river. They made the world largest rechargeable battery,
by using the surplus of water when they do not need it, but they use a
large land to have the reservoir.
