Power Generation from Dry Air
- Buoyancy energy conversion
Producing power from the movement created by the density difference between two fluids.
Tendency of one matter to rise or sink in fluid depending on the difference of density between them.
- Concentration difference energy (CDE)
Energy difference between chemical potential of two substances.
- Hygroscopic energy system (HES)
Hygroscopic energy system (HES) a power system comprising an enhanced evaporation system which creates concentration difference energy (CDE) between two solutions and a hygroscopic heat engine (HHE) which produces power from this difference.
- Hygroscopic heat engine (HHE)
Hygroscopic heat engine (HHE) is an engine using concentration difference energy (CDE) to produce power.
Tendency of a substance to absorb moisture from the air.
