Water curtain / window screen

Water curtain

This invention is to apply the concept of sunlight energy transfer by photovoltaic panels to supply the motor and water sprinkler system to isolate the heat transfer. During the water cooling process, the device will generate updraft stream. The hot air stream can drive wind turbine to generate some amount of electricity for the use of this system. The cooling water is recycled by motor from bottom pool. It can be refilled by running water system when the water is consumed up to low level. The sprinkler sets are swinging back and forth to produce a moving water flow through the glass surface as water dance.
