ST-Gen guidelines

Systems > Steam/water powered

1 The water to steam transformation uses a molucular impact technology. Small droplets of water are injected into an explosion chamber under high pressure. The molecules are "unbinding" upon impact which turns the water into dry steam. Both the water injectors as well as the explosion chambers are small and lightweighted. There is no intermediate steam build up storage area as the "exploding water" turns into steam on impact.
Configuration guidelines:

  • Non scaleable technology. More output means replication (number of injectors/chambers).

  • Primairy input: filtered water; pressure from waterpump and oil pump.

  • Usage: 20% of water flow; electrical power for pumps.

  • Clean, green and sustainable power source.

  • Delivers clean water in an open system.


2 The expander unit performs two functions: It transforms steam pressure into a direct rotary movement and it optimises torque through a "lever effect" next to condensation by applying a-symetrical pressure expansion chambers. Compared to a turbine, the design is very simple and straightforward which takes care of low maintenance and high reliability. The result is a very efficient low rpm-high torque drive unit.
Configuration guidelines:

  • Scaleable technology. From low (20KW) to high (1-3MW) output

  • Primairy input: steam , gas, etc.

  • Usage: 95% efficiency

  • Small and lightweighted

     
3 Electrical generation units of different design and state of the art can be applied. Ranging from industry standard generators to very specific small and lightweighted units are applicable. Most fit are the combined gearbox-generator solutions. This makes the ST-Gen configuration fit for both stationary as well as highly transportable system units (due to its extreme low volume and weight per KWh) suited for independent operations or connected for central generation or grid delivered power. In other words, the perfect green clean and sustainable distributed generation units.

  • Technology: small foot print; low volume; low weight.

  • Use: transportable

  • Usage: independent generation (central or local); distributed generation

  • Cost effective, no fossil fuel, green, sustainable.

  • Applicable for both industry standard as well as highly advanced generators.
