Description

The main research thrust of this period was devoted to development, construction and preparation to laboratory testing of two new power converters of higher than the old converter capacity. These converters should develop substantially larger air flow rate to test the authors new air helical turbines, combined with air chambers. Major tasks of this part of the project are completion of the gate control mechanism; continuation of the assessment of air turbine options including construction and testing a helical delta shape turbine for hydro-pneumatic power converters; completion of construction of larger power converters including gates and control systems; development of ... continued below

Major tasks of this part of the project are completion of the gate control mechanism; continuation of the assessment of air turbine options including construction and testing a helical delta shape turbine for hydro-pneumatic power converters; completion of construction of larger power converters including gates and control systems; development of test plan; procure test equipment; preparation to the tests; and development and construction of a new converter with louvre-type gate system. During this period the gate control system was tested in various mechanical combinations. The tests validated reliability and integrity of the developed mechanism. The design of the control system can be recommended for practical applications. Phases of operation of the control system are shown.
