Offshore platforms Sinn Power to extract energy from the wind, water and sun at the same time

The German company Sinn Power has introduced the concept of a universal ocean power generator in the form of a floating platform with three components. First – float system for extracting wave energy. In the second place solar panels, completes the list of kit small wind turbines. The system is modular and can be used in different weather and always have the opportunity to receive energy from at least one source.

Heart generator – float system, it is still the only one that is embodied in reality. As planned by engineers heavy platform has a very small positive buoyancy, so when you hit the waves it is almost not shifted, and all the energy goes into moving the floats. The amplitude of their movements up to 3 m, so the system collects the energy of the waves from 2 to 6 m tall, making the movement of floats to generate electricity. Namely, up to 24 kW from each of the float on the same section of the platform, but that’s in ideal conditions.

Each section is a square with sides 12 m, the corners of which are mounted the floats (underwater) and the masts of the wind turbines (above the water). The latter can produce up to 6 kW in the same conditions as floats. The whole area of the section allotted space for the placement of solar panels, which will provide another 20 kW of power. These sections can be combined in arbitrary amounts, depending on the needs of consumers who place far out to sea and transfer energy to the shore by cable.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
