Entirely novel and environmentally friendly energy technologies

Self-running running and zero emission generators which are based on autonomous hydraulic oscillations and the ram pump principle

Last update 31 May 2021

This self-running and zero emission energy technology is based on a specific type of constructions which are operated with water (or another fluid), or under water, or under a high internal water or fluid pressure. These systems - also called self-running ram pumps - generate usable mechanical, electric and / or thermal energy via autonomous hydraulic oscillations. Self-running ram pumps were, for example, constructed and advanced by the Russian inventor Dr. V. Marukhin and his co-workers. There are various kinds of consructions and sizes. For example, a steel tube design with 80 cm height and 20 cm diameter which is operated with an internal fluid pressure and oscillation frequency of about 3000 bar and 3000 Hz, respectively, can generate a permanent electric output power of several 100 kW. Two examples of such types of self-running generators and their specifications:

Besides an oscillating fluid under high pressure these generators comprise also a gas buffer which is likewise oscillating under high pressure. The fluid is for example water or glycerine and the gas is for example air or nitrogen. After assembling such a generator the high internal fluid and gas pressure can be achieved by a high pressure pump.

The generators which operate under a high internal fluid and gas pressure cannot be simply switched on or off. To initiate the self-running fluid and gas oscillations it is necessary to apply a specific high pressure pulse for a short time. That is realized by an electrically ignited explosion of about 2 g gun powder. The resulting pressure wave is transferred into the generator via a shock valve. That procedure requires special skills and for safety reasons an environment / space / laboratory which is protected against explosion. Once the self-running fluid and gas oscillations are started it is not necessary to stop them periodically, even if there are no electrical loads. Therefore the special starting procedure is usually required just once.

For safety reasons the steel tube is always designed for a pressure which is twice as as high as the operating pressure.

The mechanical energy of the fluid and gas oscillations is converted into electric energy by piezoelectric transducers. The created high voltage can be converted into a convenient form of electricity such as 230 V AC / 50 Hz by a so-called IGBT inverter. It should be noted that the performance of the piezoelectric transducers decreases over time. Therefore the usable maximum output power of a generator decreases annually by a few percent.

The autonomously running generators developed by Dr. M. Marukhin and his co-workers are already in use at some undisclosed industrial customers.

In 2021 the Swiss company TransAltec AG has taken several steps to acquire a general license for the most recent version of 500 kW or 1 MW generators for all countries apart from Southeast Asia and to make at least one demonstration generator available which can be viewed and inspected on request. Some specifications of the most recent version of 1 MW generators: height 42 cm, diameter 15 cm, weight 40 kg, estimated final price about 1000 Euro / kW.

Comments concerning the operation principle of self-running and zero emission generators which are based on hydraulic water (fluid) oscillations: The author of this website and report assumes that these and any other self-running energy technologies extract usable energy from an everywhere present form of energy which is called space energy, space-time energy, vacuum energy, or ether energy as described in an information document about entirely novel and environmentally friendly energy technologies. The tapping of this form of energy happens probably via the earth`s gravitational field which acts on the water (fluid) molecules and / or via electromagnetic fields that act at the atomic level between or on water (fluid) molecules.
