This device (see illustration) is a free-standing, completely self-contained, electrical power generating unit. It utilizes a ruggedized heat exchanger container for the nuclear waste, cooled by CO2 which drives a low-pressure, low-temperature turbine coupled to a generator.
New Technology Provides Reliable, Less Expensive, Dynamic Control Of Air And Watercraft Propeller Pitch
Currently, propeller pitch control uses three approaches: it is based upon either hydrolic oil pressure, mechanical control using lateral motion along the axis of the drive shaft,
The mass transit systems in the United States remain unavailable to most of the commuting public who live and work too far from mass transit lines. Near major urban areas, their commuting path usually takes them parallel to mass transit routes for much of their route,
Adding the "regeneration" feature to an electric aircraft significantly extends the flight time, distance, and safety. The dual-role "windprop" provides power for self-contained takeoff, cruise, and climb, and as an airborne wind turbine, restores battery energy when the aircraft encounters updrafts and in final descent. In principle,
