ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION SYSTEM USING HYDRO TURBINE TRACTED BY
| As an electric power generation system using the high
altitude wind which is more steady and stronger at the high altitude up
to about 15Km above sea level, the power generation system consists of a
rotary generator (8) derived by a hydro turbine (7) attached under a
ship-like floating platform (5) towed by a parafoil (1) flying at high
altitude, controlled by a servomotor (3), which is remotely controlled
through electric wire or wireless communication. Accordingly, the
diameter of the turbine driven by sea water is reduced as 1/20 in
comparison with the windmill which uses directly high altitude wind, and
the periodical maintenance becomes convenient by locating the heavy
mechanical moving parts near the surface of sea.

"It is proposed that electric power be generated from
wind by pulling a ship. A parafoil pulls and tows a ship.
Electrical power is generated by hydraulic turbines installed
on the ship below the water line. The electric
power generated is expended onboard to electrolyze water
to produce hydrogen or methanol or to convert carbon
dioxide into storable forms of liquid. This paper describes
the principle of designing such a system, shows the general
features of such a system, and describes in detail an
example design which produces 0.8 GW. It is shown that
a fleet of such ships operating in two different regions of
the sea can produce much more energy than the world
Personal comment by JpF:
1. How big of fleet?
2. I envision large flat barges holding the kite moorings, other wind
turbines, and the hydraulic turbines.
3. The working barges could be dedicated to gathering stored energy.
But secondary uses of the barges are possible: vacation home, sports'
fishing platforms, sea-cleaning vehicle, PV platforms, retreat home, etc.
4. I have not seen yet but the first page.
5. And I have the pleasure of welcoming Jong Chul Kim to AWE.
