Louis Michaud is the President of of AVEtec Energy Corporation residing in Ontario Canada.
INVENTION OF THE AVE
Based on the huge amount of mechanical and thermal energies of cyclones, Louis Michaud proposed the atmospheric vortex engine (AVE). A very original and unusual device for capturing mechanical energy during upward heat-
His version of atmospheric vortex engine (AVE) was back in 2012 granted by Peter Thiel's Breakout Labs. Breakout Labs is an initiative of Peter Thiel and Elon Musk that awards revolutionary technical proposals.
ESTIMATED ATMOSPHERIC EXERGY BUDGET
The AVE will capture the energy that is produced when heat is carried upward by convection in the atmosphere. (Just like in hurricanes, tornadoes or dust devils.) Such a man-
ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOURCES
The heat source can be solar energy, warm sea water, warm humid air, or even waste heat rejected in a cooling tower.
The developed atmospheric vortex engine (AVE)consists of a cylindrical wall, open at the top and with tangential air entries around the base. Heating the air within the wall using a temporary heat source such as steam starts the vortex. Once the vortex is established, it could be maintained by the natural heat content of warm humid air or by the heat provided by cooling towers.
Cooling towers are commonly used to transfer waste heat to the lower atmosphere. Louis Michaud’s AVE is supposed to increase the effciency of a thermal power plant by reducing the temperature of the heat sink from plus 30 degrees Celsius at the bottom of the atmosphere to — 70 degrees Celsius at the bottom of the stratosphere.
The AVE process can provide
Of course, there is reluctance to attempt to reproduce such destructive phenomenon as a tornado. But AVE created tornadoes are very controllable by means of the tangential air entries. A small vortex firmly anchored over a strongly built station would not be a hazard.
PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE USE OF THE AVE
Worldwide, people and nature experience more unusual weather conditions such extreme heats, colds, drought, rainfall and heat waves. In recent years these events have become more frequent and intense…….

Makes use of waste heat or heat stored in the atmosphere to generate power/energy.
