The process of storing electricity through triple conversion.

This process can be described in several steps:

1. Air Compressing: Air is taken from the environment and subjected to a compression process. Air compression is carried out with the help of compressors or pumps, which increase the air pressure. As a result of this process, the mechanical energy is converted into the potential energy of the air.

2. Compressed air storage: Compressed air is stored in cylinders (e. g. gas storage cylinders) or special tanks and cylinders under high pressure. The tank is equipped with a control valve that controls the release of air at the right time. Tanks can be detached or attached and stored underground as well as on land with hardened soil.

3. Air release: When electricity is needed, the control valve releases air from the tank. The air, released under high pressure, flows through the duct or nozzle, causing it to expand. This expansion causes the rotation of the turbine,windmill or air motor.

4. Rotation of turbine(a), fan(b) or air motor(c). The rotary motion of the air drives the turbine or the engine, which translates into the rotation of the generator rotor. The rotation of the rotor generates mechanical energy, which is converted into electricity by the generator. The generator uses an electromagnetic phenomenon to generate electricity, which is available for use.

The use of pneumatic energy in various industrial and transport sectors has many benefits. Here are a few of them:

1. Flexibility: Pneumatic power offers great flexibility as it can be easily transmitted and stored in cylinders or tanks. It can also be used in a variety of applications, from simple pneumatic tools to complex automation systems.

2. Safety: Pneumatic power is safe to use as there is no risk of sparking or explosion, which is especially important in some working environments where the presence of flammable materials or substances is dangerous.

3. Reliability: Pneumatic power systems are often more reliable than other systems because they are not sensitive to voltage fluctuations or overvoltages. In addition, in the event of a breakdown, repair and replacement of pneumatic parts is usually simpler and cheaper.

4. Ease of operation: Pneumatic systems are relatively simple to operate and maintain. You can easily monitor and adjust the air pressure and replace worn or damaged components.

5. Energy saving: Pneumatic energy can be efficiently used to power a variety of tools and equipment, which can lead to energy saving. In addition, pneumatic energy is recovered in the process of converting pneumatic energy to electrical energy, which increases the efficiency of the whole system.

6. Multitasking: Pneumatic power can be used in a wide range of applications, from driving tools and machines, to moving and manipulating items. It can also be used in various industries, such as automotive, manufacturing, construction or transport.

7. High power: Pneumatic power can provide high power, which is especially useful for demanding tasks such as driving heavy machinery or equipment. Thanks to this, pneumatic systems can effectively cope with heavy loads and provide the necessary force.

8. Quiet operation: Compared to other types of drive such as internal combustion engines, pneumatic power is much quieter in operation. This is important for environments where noise needs to be avoided, such as laboratories or residential areas.

9. Scalability: Pneumatic power is easily scalable, which means it can be adjusted to different needs and requirements. You can control the amount of compressed air, pressure and flow for optimum performance.

10. Low operating costs: Overall, pneumatic systems have lower operating costs compared to other energy sources. Air is widely available and cheaper than other fuels, and the pneumatic system itself requires less maintenance and spare parts.

11. Environmental friendliness: Pneumatic energy is more environmentally friendly than some other energy sources such as fossil fuels. It does not emit exhaust gases or toxic substances, which helps to reduce the negative impact on the environment.

12. Safety for workers: Pneumatic energy is safe for workers as there is no risk of electric shock. In addition, there is no risk of fire or explosion in the event of air leaks.

13. Longevity: Pneumatic systems are known for their longevity and reliability. Pneumatic components are resistant to wear, corrosion and other damage, which translates into a longer service life of the system.

14. Process safety: Pneumatic energy allows precise control of movement and force, which is particularly important for processes that require gentle and precise handling of objects. Pneumatic systems are often used in the automation of production processes where safety is crucial.

15. Resistance to outdoor conditions: Pneumatic energy is resistant to weather conditions such as humidity or low temperature. Therefore, pneumatic systems are often used in harsh environments such as the marine industry or the petrochemical industry.

16. Response Speed: Pneumatic systems are characterized by a quick response to changes in control signals. The air can be easily adjusted, allowing immediate response to commands and changes in working conditions.

17. Low weight: Pneumatic components are usually lighter than their mechanical or hydraulic counterparts. This low weight facilitates installation and handling of the pneumatic system, which is particularly important for mobile applications.

18. Simplicity of design: Pneumatic systems are generally simpler in design than hydraulic or electrical systems. It consists of several basic components such as compressor, tank, valves and hoses. This simplicity makes it easy to install, maintain and repair.

19. Compatibility: Pneumatic power is compatible with other technologies, allowing the pneumatic system to be easily connected to other systems or devices. For example, the pneumatic system can be easily controlled by electrical relays or PLCs.

20. Reduced side effects: Pneumatic energy is odourless, invisible and leaves no traces, which translates into limited side effects in manufacturing processes or handling of objects. Pneumatic power is overload resistant, which means that pneumatic systems can operate under harsh conditions such as heavy loads or frequent load changes.

21. Easy access to tools and spare parts: Air tools and spare parts are widely available and easily available on the market. This facilitates the maintenance and maintenance of pneumatic systems.

22. Energy recovery capability: Pneumatic energy can be recovered and used in the regeneration process, which contributes to greater energy efficiency of the system.

23. Operator safety: Pneumatic power is safe to use because there is no risk of electric shock. This is especially important when working in humid or wet conditions where there is a risk of electric shock.

24. Safety in the event of a breakdown: In the event of a pneumatic system failure, the air is safe and poses no risk to operators or the environment. Unlike other energy sources, such as fossil fuels, there is no risk of toxic leakage or fire.

25. Low maintenance costs: Pneumatic systems tend to have lower maintenance costs compared to other technologies. Pneumatic components are wear-resistant and have a long service life, which translates into less need for repairs and replacement of parts.

These benefits make pneumatic power an attractive option in many industries and sectors. Its reliability, flexibility and security make it a popular choice for many companies and businesses.

Is it possible to create pneumatic stations that not only convert into electricity, but also sell and buy back pneumatic energy?

Yes, and by adding a suitable cap or adapter, the stations can create air with parameters for different applications (e. g. medical).

For hospitals, purified air is extremely important as it affects the safety of patients and medical staff. Pneumatic stations can be equipped with appropriate filters and dehumidifiers that remove dirt and moisture, ensuring clean and dry air.

With this solution, hospitals can benefit from the benefits of pneumatic energy recovery stations while providing safe and clean air for their medical applications. This innovative solution can help improve the quality of healthcare and ensure patient safety.

In summary, regenerated pneumatic stations can not only buy and sell tyres, but also convert them into electricity. This is an innovative solution that enables the efficient use of pneumatic energy and can contribute to energy savings.

This solution can bring benefits not only to these sectors, but also to other areas that use electricity. Kinetic and pneumatic energy storage can contribute to greater flexibility and efficiency in the use of energy.

However, it is worth noting that the process of converting tyres into electricity may be associated with some energy losses. Therefore, it is important to carry out appropriate energy efficiency analyses and assessments to determine whether such a system is cost-effective and efficient for a given pneumatic station. In an unconventional way, it is possible to reduce to negligible losses.
