Tornado Hunters!

Real creative minds are rare; they are the true fortune if a land had’m. ūüėČ Welcome back out friends from the US, Brazil, Ukraine, Australia, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Latvia, Pakistan, Serbia, and Russia ūüėČ

It’s a combination of thoughts. We like to present it knowing that it’s a new idea. Who knows, may be it isn’t, or may be there has been some experiments in that connection.

As far as we know, we haven’t heard anything like it before, but again it could have been thought of or tried.

First thing is first. During my last week classes, I was teaching my students about tornadoes. For sure, you know what I am talking about, hearing this word repeatedly said in the news. Just for the sake of  definition, tornadoes are:

A tornado is a violent rotating column of air extending from a thunderstorm to the ground. The most violent tornadoes are capable of tremendous destruction with wind speeds of up to 300 mph. They can destroy large buildings, uproot trees and hurl vehicles hundreds of yards.

Since:

1- We are short of energy and seeking more energy all the time.

2- Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be saved in various forms. One way to store it is in the form of chemical energy in a battery. When connected in a circuit, energy stored in the battery is released to produce electricity.

3- Wind can be used in creating electricity by using a large wind turbine (usually consisting of propellers); the turbine can be connected to a generator to generate electricity, then stored until needed.

Then it is possible to create machines/tools to absorb that stormy tornadoes, which have a gigantic energy, and generate energy which is to be contained in an appropriate storage, to be used when needed later on.

In order to do that, you will need a number of creative minds to come up with those tools, may be something similar to the shapes above.

These are like huge funnels that would be directed towards the column of airs produced by the speedy wind, and suck these tornadoes in through a tunnel where it would generate energy to be stored.

Wouldn’t it remind you of ghost-busters style? But who would be like to work as “Tornado Hunters”? ūüôĄSophieTornadoEng

Another electricity (energy)  storage method is to compress and cool air, turning it into liquid air, which can be stored, and expanded when needed, turning a turbine, generating electricity, with a storage efficiency of up to 70%.

Until we chat again with another new idea, keep looking for your inspiration among our topics, with our hugs and kisses ‚̧
