How electric drillers can use electric fields to pump water and power homes
- by admin
Electric drillers have been experimenting with electric fields for decades to pump fresh water from underground.
Now, they are experimenting with a more realistic application: powering homes with electricity.
Here’s what it takes to make it work.
Electric drillers are often limited to using one or two pumps, but they have been finding that if they can use more than one, the result is more water in the ground, which can help boost crop yields.
A new type of electric driller, which uses electric fields as part of the pumping process, could be a game-changer for electric drillmakers.
The idea is to use a combination of electric and hydraulic pumps to pump more water out of a field, which helps them pump more efficiently and conserve energy.
But electric drill companies are struggling to find a way to incorporate these technologies into electric drilling rigs.
Electric drills are the least-expensive ways to pump out water, but the efficiency of their hydraulic system has been declining.
Researchers at Purdue University and the University of California have developed a new type called a hybrid electric drill, which combines electric and mechanical pumps to create a pump that can pump more than 150 gallons per second.
The idea is that the electric pump uses a magnetic field to draw water up through a small tunnel beneath the field, and then the electric field moves it back down through the field.
The electric field can also be manipulated by adding an electric current to the hydraulic pump to create an alternating current, or AC, that drives the pump, according to the researchers.
The goal is to pump as much water out as possible, and that can be achieved by using the electric fields alone or with additional electric fields, according the researchers, who detailed their research in the journal Nature Communications.
While the research is relatively small, the researchers said that their design could be used in future electric drill rigs, which could then pump water to homes and businesses, and potentially provide power for the homes themselves.
The researchers developed the hybrid electric pump, called the ElectroHydroDrain, as a replacement for existing hydraulic systems.
The hybrid electric system uses two pumps to deliver water from the ground to a pump at the top of a hydraulic pump tower.
The system uses electric motors and hydraulic actuators to push water up the shaft, where it can be pumped into a hydraulic tank.
The hydraulic pump then moves the water to the top and bottom of the tank, where the water is pumped back down the shaft to the ground.
A pump like this would be more efficient than existing hydraulic pumps.
In addition to having less hydraulic stress on the pump shaft, the new system uses no water.
The electric field inside the hybrid drill uses magnetic fields to draw the water up from the earth.
The magnetic field is also able to control the flow of water through the water system, allowing the pump to pump a continuous stream of water.
The new electric drill has the ability to pump multiple times more water than previous hybrid electric pumps, according an accompanying article in the Nature Communications journal.
“We were able to show that the new hybrid electric drills can pump water at a rate that is equivalent to hydraulic pumps with a single motor and hydraulic system, and with no additional electrical inputs,” said the Purdue University researcher, Daniel Pang.
“The only difference between hydraulic and electric systems is the amount of energy required to move the water.”
The researchers said the hybrid system is more efficient, with a water loss of only a few percent compared to existing hydraulic and electrical systems, which have a water flow rate of up to a quarter of the current hybrid electric hydraulic pumps, which are typically at least 15 percent of the hydraulic system’s current capacity.
In a previous article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Pang and his colleagues described a hybrid hydraulic system that uses electric field to pump electric power from a pump tower into a battery.
That hybrid system has about 40 percent more water capacity than existing hybrid electric and electric hydraulic systems, Pung said.
The Purdue research has been published in Nature Communications, a peer-reviewed journal.
The research team also reported in the same journal that they tested the hybrid hydraulic pump and found that it produced about the same amount of water as a current hybrid hydraulic pumping system.
