APPLE'S HOT WIND

Apple Files Patent for 24 hour Wind Turbine

Instead generating electricity, first it makes hreat and stores heat, therefore it can regulate output, the heat drives a generator and wind become 24 hour.

The system uses a set of rotating blades to convert rotational energy from a wind turbine into heat in a low-heat-capacity fluid. Next, the system selectively transfers the heat from the low-heat-capacity fluid to a working fluid. Finally, the system uses the transferred heat in the working fluid to generate electricity.

1. A system for generating electricity, comprising: a rotation-transmission mechanism, wherein a first end of the rotation-transmission mechanism is operatively connected to a rotor shaft of a wind turbine, and wherein a second end of the rotation-transmission mechanism is operatively connected to a set of rotating blades; the set of rotating blades immersed in a low-heat-capacity fluid, wherein the rotating blades are configured to convert rotational energy from the wind turbine into heat in the low-heat-capacity fluid; an insulated vessel containing the low-heat-capacity fluid, wherein the insulated vessel is configured to retain the heat in the low-heat-capacity fluid; a heat-transfer mechanism configured to selectively transfer the heat from the low-heat-capacity fluid to a working fluid; and an electric generator configured to use the transferred heat in the working fluid to generate electricity.
