# OCEAN WATERFALLS

**65 MW is a Huge Potential!**

## THE POWER OF GRAVITATION

**The power of ocean waterfalls is possible because the water is traveling at 26 mph at the foot of waterfall:**

**Jeongbang Waterfall in South Korea: 23 m (75 ft) high: **

Six Helical Turbines at three levels: 18 **HUG** Turbines

(Final **Velocity**)² **= 2 x a x s (distance)**

Acceleration = a = g (acceleration of gravity)= 9.8 m/sec

**Final Velocity **= **12.5 m/s **for 8 m distance (s)

**Initial Power of First Set**of Turbine installed at 8 m level

*KE =** *½ x ** A** x

*V*

*³***x efficiency (**

**A = area swept**;

*V***elocity**)

at** One Third** of the crest of a waterfall

** One Third** Power of the Helical Turbine

= ½ x **3.26 m²** x (**12.5 m/s**)³ x .35 = **1,100** kW/turbine x 6 =6.6 MW

**Final Velocity **= **17 m/s **for 15 m distance (s)

**2. Power of Second Set **of Turbine installed at 15 m level

at **Two Third **of the crest of a waterfall

**Two Third Power **of the next set of 6 Helical Turbines

= ½ x **3.26 m²** x (17** m/s**)³ x .35 = **2,800** kW/turbine x 6 =16.8MW

**3. Final Power of Third Set** of Turbine installed at 23 m level

at the **B****ottom **of** **the crest of a waterfall

**Full Power **of the last set of 6 Helical Turbines

= ½ x **3.26 m²** x (23** m/s**)³ x .35 = **6900** kW/turbine x 6 =41 MW

**Total Power of 18 HUG Turbines: 65 MW without the Vortex**

**160 MW is a Greater Potential!**

## THE POWER OF THE VORTEX

** **In additon, a whirlpool pathway of the **HUG** creates a **vortex.**

The **Velocity** in the flume of the **HUG** is **four times** faster than placing the turbine directly in the path of the waterfall.

At three levels of **HUG** at 8 m, 15 m and 23 m, the velocity of the flow is interrupted by the **HUG** helical turbine.

(Final **Velocity**)² **= 2 x a x s (distance)**

Acceleration = a = g (acceleration of gravity)= 9.8 m/sec

**Final Velocity **= **25 m/s **for 8 m distance (s)

**Initial Power of First Set** of Turbine installed at **8 m level**

*Kinetic Energy =** *½ x ** A** x

*V*

*³***x efficiency (**

**A = area swept**;

*V***elocity**)

at** One Third** of the crest of a waterfall

** One Third** Power of the Helical Turbine

= ½ x **3.26 m²** x (**25**** m/s**)³ x .35 = **8,9****00** kW/turbine x 6 =**53.5 MW**

**This power repeats itself at three levels: 53.5 MW x 3 = 160 MW**
