Eco-friendly renewable HYDRO energy
‘WIZZROTO’™ - HYDRO ENERGY
PROPOSITION – COLLABORATION SOUGHT FOR DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT OF
MODULAR RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVICES & SYSTEMS IN CONJUNCTION WITH
Centre for Global Eco-Innovation supports region’s green economy
The idea emanates from a TCL fluid dynamics research and development PhD project (2017-2020),
where additional phenomena was observed from various experiments into the performance of no-moving parts water pumps, codenamed, ‘GIZZMOTO’.
An eminent university professor internationally recognised as a leading authority in hydro energy has observed that
the ‘WIZZROTO’ idea is new and equally a stand-alone concept worthy of a separate research and development
programme. Due to the results already obtained from the ‘GIZZMOTO’ CFD analysis and practical testing there is a
library of data ready to be transferred to form the basis for designs of new concept devices.
Adopting the principles of a fluid dynamics device as an electric power supply generator.
CFD SPINNING PHENOMENON
Basic hydro-electric principles are incorporated into the design and development of ‘WIZZROTO’ systems, either without any moving parts (no mechanical turbine), or discrete configurations that reduce or eliminate ‘wear-and-tear’ components. All are self-contained modular units. R & D projects would include assessments of viability and scalability.
Draft, conceptual designs include:
– Fluid Dynamics & Mechanical Turbine
– Fluid Dynamics & Conductive Generator
– Fluid Dynamics & Magneto Charger
OUTLINE DESCRIPTION OF CONCEPT
The ‘WIZZROTO’ device would operate in an inverted plane and designed with a sealed ‘top-hat’ end and ‘bowl’ to collect and divert water through a series of specially configured jets. The subsequent jets of water would then be directed into the central core. Water flow could operate a turbine, or a sleeve made from dielectric material, before passing through, back into the main water stream.
CHECK GIZZMOTO VIDEO CLIP FOR SPINNING EFFECT:
Depending on whether the application is domestic or commercial/industrial, a ‘WIZZROTO’ module
would be positioned vertically in the downstream flow of a natural water supply and sized to suit, e.g. a single small-bore modular module fitted to a household water discharge pipe; or a large-scale multiple bank of modular devices in open water/river and weir systems.

SCALING CONSIDERATION – COMBINED ‘WIZZROTO’ & ‘GIZZMOTO’ SELF-CONTAINED HYDRO-ELECTRIC POWER GENERATOR & PUMPING BLOCK
By far the biggest project is the design of a ‘ROTO-MOTO’ combination generator and pumping block utilising the ‘GIZZMOTO’ Pump and ‘WIZZROTO’ Generator to build a hydro-electric power plant.
The ‘GIZZMOTO’ Pump would operate from compressed air at low pressures – 1 Bar to 3 Bar – depending on lift required. The compressed air could initially be generated by off-peak electrically driven machinery and stored at high pressures – typically 21 Bar for high volume capacity air receiver vessels and 200 Bar for lower volume pressure tanks.
Well established Compressed Air Energy Storage systems, based on above ground banks of storage vessels or underground (below land or sea) aquifers, could provide the initial power.
A no-moving parts ‘GIZZMOTO’ pump would transfer water from a low-level source – reservoir, lake, sea – to a high-level water storage reservoir.
A ‘WIZZROTO’ Generator could then produce power from water released from the high-level reservoir, depositing used water back into a low-level reservoir.
The aim: To generate Pico-hydro values (100 watts to 5 KW) or Micro-hydro values (5 KW to 100 KW)?
A successful R & D programme would open up world-wide opportunities with enormous benefits to the populous of least developed countries.
