Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 1)


This paper presents a description of some inventions of a talented Russian scientistinventor who one hundred years ago suggested new ideas for the development of motors for airplanes, construction of electrical power stations and more than twenty different technological inventions. In particular,Ufimtsev offered an interesting idea for use of an inertia accumulator, which led to the realization of a wind-powered electrical power station.
