Hydro Cycle Generator

The invention relates to a renewable energy device, that recycles water, in a water cycle, to produce hydro electricity.

Often hydro electricity is stopped by a lack of water in the cycle, due to low rainfall, or drought. During times of low water levels, the hydro electricity is stopped. Hydro electricity uses up water resources that could be used in other systems. This can cause environmental issues. To overcome these problems, this invention utilises the water cycle, where water evaporates, at low alititude, then rises in the now moist air, then condenses, when the air is cooled, at higher altitude. Normally this is due to rising altitude, but condensation can be encouraged by cooling the air, or other techniques. In nature water evaporates, into the air, from the ocean, and reservoirs, it cools as it rises due to lapse rates. The colder air is, the less moisture, it can hold. Eventually air cools as it rises, in altitude, to a point where moisture in the air condenses. The air then loses the moisture, as rainfall, to go back to liquid form at high altitude. When the liquid is flowing from higher up reservoirs, it can be passed through turbines to generate hydro electricity, where it then continues to flow down, due to the water cycle to evaporation.
In this invention, the water is kept in a closed system, where energy from the sun, or artificial light, evaporates the water, from the lower altitude reservoir in the evaporation chamber, and the air holding the evaporated water, rises to a point where the moist air cools, and the condensation systems, cause the liquid to condense back into the reservoir.
Another theme of the invention is to use equipment to encourage condensation, at the higher altitudes, such as cold objects in the condensation chamber that when the moist air contacts with the the cold objects. This is how as you see in cars when warm moist air, comes into contact with the cold car windows, then the liquid condenses when the warm moist air comes into contact with the cold window. As the colder air, can hold less moisture. This invention will use cold objects in the condensation chamber to condense more liquid to drop into the upper reservoirs of the condensation chamber of the invention.
The hope is this could set up a water cycle recycling water, in a cycle that repeats.

The invention will now be described soley by way of invention, with reference to the accompanying drawings.

In figure 1 the device is an enclosed system 1, as far as keeping water resources maintained. This invention utilises the water cycle affect where water evaporates, in the evaporation chamber 3 from the lower altitude evaporation chamber reservoirs 2. Then rises in the now moist air, then condenses, when the air is cooled, at highter altitude. In this invention, the air cools, when it enters the condensation chamber 5, due to being in a colder chamber, at a higher altitude, but condensation can be encouraged by cooling the air, and condensation nuclei. The moist air, in the evaporation chamber flows through the evaporation chamber exit 8, into the condensation chamber 5.
In nature, when water evaporates from the ocean, and reservoirs, it is evaporated into the air. Then it is held by air. The colder air is, the less moisture it can hold. The air cools as it rises due to lapse rates. Eventually the air cools as it rises, in altitude, to a point where moisture in the air will condense. The air then loses the moisture, as rainfall, to go back at higher altitudes. When the liquid is flowing down from higher up reservoirs it can be used by passing through turbines to generate hydro electricity, where it then continues to flow down, due to the the water cycle to be evaporated again.
This is done in this invention, where once the moist air enters the condensation chamber 5, it cools in the colder chamber, and some cools on the condensation chamber condensation objects 4. This is of the same affect as when a car window mists up due to moist air inside coming into contact with colder windows, and the air condensing on the windows. In this device the condensation objects will cool down the air on contact, causing the moisture in the air to condense, and cause the water to fall into the high altitude condensation chamber reservoirs 6.
In this invention, the water is kept in a closed system, where energy from the sun, via sunlight, or artificial heating, evaporates the water, from the lower altitude reservoir 2 in the evaporation chamber 3, and the air holding the evaporated water, rises to a point where the moist air cools, an the condensation systems causing the liquid to condense into the higher altitude condensation chamber reservoirs 6.
Another theme of the invention is to use equipment to encourage condensation, at the higher altitudes, such as cold objects 4, in the condensation chamber 5 that when the moist air contacts with the the cold objects, the moist air condenses.

The water cycle device will be housed in evaporation, and condensation chambers. Where liquid evaporates up in the evaporation chamber, rising up. Then the air holding the evaporated moisture reaches a cold enough point due to decreasing in temperature, to condense the liquid it is holding. This can be caused by the moist air being moved into the condensation chamber 5, which has a lower temperature and has equipment or surfaces at a temperature that cools the air, and causes the liquid to lose moisture in a process called condensation. And as the moisture condenses, and fills up the higher altitude condensation chamber reservoir 6, where it flows down the hydro electric tunnel 7, to generate electricity. The hydro electric tunnel 7, contains hydro electric turbines to generate electricity. It flows back down through the condensation chamber exit 9 to the lower altitude reservoir 2 to evaporate again.
The evaporation can be caused by the greenhouse heating up, due to sunlight energy, to a temperature that would cause the liquid in the evaporation chamber reservoir, to evaporate. The walls or windows, of the evaporation chamber 3, can be manufactured or sprayed with substances to prevent the greenhouse misting up. As misting up could reduce the proportion of sunlight energy that could enter the evaporation chamber.
The walls of the condensation chamber 5 can be manufactured to lose heat, while the walls, or windows, of the evaporation chamber 3, can be manufactured to keep heat, and absorb heat, from sunlight energy, or artificial heating.
Electricity energy will be generated, as the water flows from the condensation chamber reservoir 6 down through the hydro electric tunnels 7. Electricity can be generated as the water flows from higher altitudes to lower altitudes with the flow of the liquid powering turbines. There are many different ways of generating electricity as water flows from higher altitude to lower altitude.
So that is my crazy, crazy idea.
Would it work?
