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

The Velocity in the flume of the HUG is FOUR TIMES faster.
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 0 0 kW/turbine x 6 =53.5 MW

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