Nuclear fusion is the energy source of the future.
It is the process by which multiple atomic nuclei join together to form a single heavier nucleus.
It is accompanied by the release or absorption of energy.
Research into controlled fusion, which aim is producing fusion power for the production of electricity, has been conducted for over 50 years.
Currently attempts to achieve a controlled fusion reaction are performed in big, complicated and very expensive installations as "Tokamak" or like this in Livermore, which has the area of 3 Football playing fields. These installations consume for the moment more energy than the energy they produce,
it is very difficult to control the processes inside the big volume where ...

The hunger for conquering the waves led to invention of the boat, ship. The entire basic logic behind the moment of a ship in water is similar to the movements of fish and some sea birds.
The invention of the ship provided the path, a gateway only for transferring goods and passengers. The idea of reducing the fuel consumption & increasing efficiency was never looked for the future development.
In this project, concentrate on the efficiency, propellant and safety in ships. Reciprocating pump along with controllers are used to move the ship. This provides a higher efficiency when compared with the present day ship.
This design also provides the turning of the ship with minimum radius, thereby providing a high degree ...

The oil leak into the Gulf of Mexico may never be completely sealed off - this oil capture idea is based on whale hunting behaviour using bubble curtains.

Imagine a fleet of tugboats dropping hundreds of 10,000 psig air bottles overboard in a large circle around the oil leak site.

The resulting inverted conical curtain of bubbles contains and rises with the oil, each bubble's volume expanding 200 times as it rises towards the surface. This roiling, frothing and bubbly perimeter clearly defines where the thickening surface oil patch is located.

Each bottle is fitted with a balloon or parachute that slowly fills with air in a controlled rate so that when bottle pressure reaches 2300 psig (ambient at ...

After Suddam Hussein blew up the oil wells in Kuwait during the Gulf War, the Department of Energy, British Petroleum and the Red Adair company were given three inventions for putting out the oil well fires faster in Kuwait. Red Adair used the water ring invention to extinguish some of the oil well fires in Kuwait. Nova did a documentary “Putting out the oil fires in Kuwait” which shows the water ring invention putting out an oil well fire with water for the first time. One of the other inventions, which was never used in Kuwait, plugs the oil well and allows it to be easily used again. A crude picture of the oil well plug is shown to ...

This is another alternate way of generating power using wind energy. This is similar to trees which oscillate during windy conditions. The oscillating motion is used to generate the power.
The Device consist of a flexible tower and rotating blade. The flexible tower which is fiber composites allow it to oscillate during the windy condition which is in turn used to generate power. The Rotating blade on top of the frame adjust the orientation according to wind direction and the shape of the blade is used to maximize the utilization of Wind power.
This device requires less Space compared to normal wind power ...

The Osmotic well consists of the following parts numbered on the figure. 1. outer casing 2. inner casing 3. semi permeable membrane 4. Black holding tank with shut off valve 5. Bright storage tank Once the well is dug and water located, a second casing is lowered into the water. At the end of the casing a semi-permeable membrane is attached. This allows for water to pass but not large molecules. Inside the second casing a small amount of water is placed together with salt. This will initiate the osmotic process. With current technology used for extracting hydro electricity, this can produce water pressure equivalent to a 120 meter water column. http://www.statkraft.com/energy-sources/osmotic-power This means the process can also ...

Oceanic Thermal Energy Conversion system for Gulf Restoration Venture (OTEC-Gulf) is being created in this two-phase effort. In Phase I, we will conduct extensive, long-term testing of concepts over a two-year period in a one-tenth-scale prototype. In Phase II, deploy 100’s of 100-megawatt OTEC systems.
OTEC-Gulf will bring nutrient-rich cold water from the Gulf of Mexico depths causing a phytoplankton bloom, which will restore oxygen & aquatic life at surface AND over time sequester carbon to ocean depths. OTEC systems also remove warm water from ocean surface thereby reducing hurricane fuel source, which could reduce risk to properties at nearby beach communities. Income from OTEC system could be generated via:
1. BP and Gulf restoration,
2. carbon ...

The system is an alteration of the Oscillating Water Column principle (OWC). Many companies have constructed and tested at sea OWC systems and the system has been accepted
as a credible design philosophy for sea wave energy capture and deployed in shoreline, fixed installations, and in deep water.

The difference with my system is that I directly use the water for driving the turbines instead of wave generated compressed air. In initial tests on modified air systems the system proved far more efficient than the original OWC air operated systems.

(Working description )
The system is designed to operate from a vertical floating column anchored to the sea floor and by using wave vertical energy. Water is pumped through a pipes ...

To create a new world, the advanced development of alternative energy sources is very important. There is plenty of heat energy available in solar radiation. Now we have some current technologies to grab the sun's heat. But improvements are needed for a sustainable future. In the solar field, the solar power plant is the one of the best way to grab the sun heat. My Idea is to increase the efficiency of the heat collection. The parabolic though is widely used in solar power plants. My new design enhances the efficiency of the heat absorption to the liquid (working fluid) of the plant. It  consists of an enclosed glass box that has minimum thickness (width), some appropriate height and length equal ...

PORTABLE AIR VESSEL (PAV) is a Fresh Air Breathing System which can be used in polluted atmosphere caused by the vehicular traffic on roads. PAV is a cylindrically shaped pressure vessel which is made up of either Mild Steel or FRP. Fresh Air can be stored in PAV under compressed state. Unlike the breathing systems used by the under water divers, which has to be resent to the supplier for refilling, this PAV can be refilled at any petrol filling station or any other near place where an Air compressor is available to inflate the vehicle's tyres. A controlled outlet valve releases the Fresh Air at required comfortable pressure through tube/s which can be directly connected to the Air ...
