Kenitec energies in flowing streams suited for low head turbine

Most neglected but of great potential are kenetic energies in rivers/stsreams, sea waves, and wind. Torque is amplified by multiple propellers in a common shaft to power gear pumps. Several gear pumps can be connected in series to increase water pressure to that required by a low head electrric generator. Several headers from sets of gear pumps can be accumulated into an accumulator with a relief valve. The system can deliver a steady supply to an electric generator sized to util;ize available power of the stream section in a locality. Electricity can be stored in baterries for small communities. Wind power can accumulate gust energies by hydraulic feeder into its vertical vanes. The hydraulic fluid is feed by centrifugal force inducing flow from a reservoir through a syphon pipe.
