The Gravity Turbine
The gravity turbine was designed as a means of harnessing energy from a multitude of sources, of a non-combustible nature, It is not a perpetual motion machine and needs an energy input to function .That being said, combustible materials can be used in its operation, although not preferred if toxic or greenhouse gas is released. Global warming and the environment were key factors in this decision as my son has to live in this world we’ve made.
After years of experimentation and prototyping, the design as shown will become more efficient with time, money and expert help.
To address this, the invention proposes an electrical generator, driven by the gravitational torque difference created by changing the position of the machine’s counterbalanced force using an energy input.
The several advantages of this machine are: highly adaptable to harness a multitude of energy inputs, scalable dependent on energy requirements, of a simple nature for ease of construction, low cost production, environmentally sound if used with the appropriate energy inputs.
