Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2335491A1] A solar powered electrical generating system (10) includes a continuous hydraulic circuit (12) carrying a liquid (14) therethrough. A boiler (16) is fluidly connected to a first side of the continuous hydraulic circuit (12). A facility (18) is for heating the liquid (14) within the boiler (16). A condenser (20) is fluidly connected to a second side of the continuous hydraulic circuit (12). A facility (22) is for cooling the liquid (14) withi n the condenser (20). A hydraulic motor (24) is fluidly connected into a flow line of the continuous hydraulic circuit (12) between a lower exit port of t he boiler (16) and an upper entrance port of the condenser (20). The liquid (14 ) when heated in the boiler (16) will flow from the boiler (16) to the condens er (20) to operate the hydraulic motor (24). A recirculation pump (26) is fluid ly connected into a recirculation line of the continuous hydraulic circuit (12) between a lower exit port of the condenser (20) and an entrance port of the boiler (16). The liquid (16) when cooled in the condenser (20) will flow bac k to the boiler (16). A check valve (28) is in the recirculation line of the continuous hydraulic circuit (12). An electric generator (30) is provided. A structure (32) is for coupling the electric generator (30) to the hydraulic motor (24), so that the hydraulic motor (24) will drive the electric generat or (30) to produce electricity.
