High altitude gravity energy storage

The present invention is realized by apparatus and methods for harvesting, storing, and generating energy by permanently placing a large rigid buoyant platform high in the earth's atmosphere, above clouds, moisture, dust, and wind. Long, strong and light tethers can connect the buoyant structure to the ground which can hold it in position against wind forces. Weights suspended from the buoyant platform with cables are raised and lowered by electric winches to store and release gravitational potential energy. High voltage transmission lines electrically connect the platform to the earth's surface. Electrical energy from the high voltage transmission lines or from photovoltaic arrays on the platform can be stored as gravitational potential energy and subsequently released as electricity from generators driven from the stored gravitational potential energy and used on the platform or transmitted via the high voltage transmission lines.

Method for creating amplified gravitational radiation

The invention relates to gravitational radiation engineering and can be used in engines for space vehicles and for controlling different processes. According to a conventional gravitation theory, there exists a link between space-time and a matter (mass). The inventive method for creating gravitational radiation involves rapidly changing a mass a) by means of nuclear reactions; b) by means of chemical and electrochemical reactions. In addition, the invention involves the use of a chain of artificial and/or natural gravitation sources in order to generate curved space oscillations which are in phase with each other or in phase opposition or are at an angle to each other. Furthermore, it is expected to generate the curved space oscillations, including high-power standing waves, by virtue of a gravitational induction phenomena and by the selection of frequencies and phase difference between oscillations.

Transformer for transforming gravitational energy into kinetic energy

The invention relates to a transformer for transforming gravitational energy into kinetic energy, comprising a motor which drives an off-center shaft installed in a cylindrical casing and three steel rods which extend longitudinally through the shaft, each rod end being provided with a heavy mass and a bearing that rolls along the cylinder. In addition, a strip having a curvature less than that of the cylinder extends from the lower part of the cylinder to a 90� axis, oriented towards the shorter side formed by the off-center shaft, so as to form a ramp on which the bearings of the masses can roll.

Gravitational motor


The present patent application aims at providing a motor powered by the force of gravity for rotating a shaft. The gravitational motor (1) uses water (as a mass) in order to apply pressure to air confined in the container (6) and to transfer water contained in the chamber provided in said container to the tank (2). Water will always flow towards the air-filled chamber, owing exclusively to the operation of the directional valve (3).

Gravitation-force motor

The invention relates to a prime mover and machine which taps the gravitational forces for its drive, using a flowing mass. The invention makes it possible in a relatively simple manner to use the invariable energy source, gravity, and proposes a drive motor which is independent of energy carriers. The essence of the invention consists in the fact that a rotor has the form of a cylindrical hollow body 10 and has at least two channels 16; 17 running from the inside to the outside in a spiral around the axis of rotation and that, during the rotation, the flowing mass flows through the channels 16; 17 continuously from the inside towards the outside, a nozzle 18; 19 being arranged at each of the channel outlets.

Method and device for producing energy in a gravitation field without consuming matter

The invention makes it possible to use the gravitational field by means of a recyclable mass by the maintenance of a permanent unbalance. The deformable body 1 is connected to the chain 11 in the part p1, so as to have a mass per unit volume higher than that of the medium 13, and is connected to the chain 47 at p2, so as to have a mass per unit volume lower after elongation as a result of the faster drive of 18. At 27, a fraction of the body passes from 13 to 47 and at 35 a fraction passes from 47 to 11. The invention is used for any energy requirement, especially in desert regions.
