This potential energy accumulating system is of the type adapted to harness multiple sources of energy, including those of non-variable input such as from fuel and those of variable input, such as from the wind, the sun, the geothermal steam, animal power or the water. The system is characterized by being made to reduce the effect of the variable input of such sources of energy by stocking the same in the form of potential energy, releasable under kinetic form, and by being compatible to be coupled to and driven by any kind or number of machines operated by variable and non-variable energy sources. This system includes a closed circuit arrangement to use and accumulate the potential energy of relatively heavy balls or bodies of water, and to mechanically regulate the output so as to compensate the variations in the energy input.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
