Let's describe this idea as a Self Generating a Tsunami-Perpetual Wave Pattern Making Machine to Derive Mini-Hydro Power Systems in Rivers.
Hydro-Mini Tsunami-Perpetual Wave Making Machine.
Energy can not be created or destroyed but we can convert the dynamic flow of the river into energy to divert part of the current for Hydro and water delivery up hill. So in this case we will not break that law. You see the dynamic river flow of the water is all the power we need to create this system of hydro power.
A river water flow generated system that pushes back a plow under water in increments like a come-a-long. Then when it gets all the way back it pivots and lets go and the plow on a spring type system then sends a wave into the shore it a precise point where there is a hydro-electric generator. Using the same types of flows produced by Tsunamis.
The water flows through the generator up hill and it is slowed by the friction of the generator and gravity, but enough to make it into a set of tubes that are vertically "S" Curved like Mullholland invented to deliver water to CA up hill. Where the water is sucked along like a straw once it is primed.
The water is then sent into the nearby city or village (Yes Village as in Africa for Farming and water). Once the machine makes the wave it's head pivots by the water flow and it is slowly cranked against stream by the head or plow is inline with the direction of flow since the back of the plow is shaped like a tetra heden and therefore easier to move forward against the downward flow upon it. It is then pivoted back horizontal to the direction of flow and cranks it back again. Repeating every 2 minutes. Now four of these in a diamond pattern facing the river are set to deliver the waves, so you have nearly a constant flow of water and energy. If anyone is interested in this idea, I have drawings and am pretty confindent a small version can be built relatively cheaply.
Such simple ideas like this can assist countries without power with their needs so they can develop agriculture and farming, perhaps teaching a man to fish may in fact be better than delivering fishes or wheat from half way around the world. Helping the farmer with the needs for irrigation flow and teaching them to do the rest by farming.
