In that model, he has 2 stationary ring magnets on either side of the stationary air coils. Between those coils and ring magnets, he has rotating inductors; ferrous metal tabs that cut the magnetic field's path to the coils. The input energy is to turn/spin those inductors by the magnets. The magnet's field is blocked from the coil, then, when the inductor passes, the field surges back onto the coil. That movement of the magnetic field onto the coils induces electricity.
He's using iron as his inductor, but there are other projects using laminated sheets of other ferrous metals to cut the magnetic field's path to the coils. Because there is no repulsion against rotation, they're not subject to Lenz's Law. Setups like this are known as Lenzless generators and there is much speculation about overunity from them.
The force against rotation is magnetic attraction. Eddy currents in the inductor cause heat losses.
At around 2,000 RPM's the force of attraction reduces, apparently. Also, using laminated inductors or shields reduces the heat losses. And, using ring magnets further reduces the attraction resistance because they're not jumping from one magnet to another, according to Mr. Quale.
I'm adding linear generators, basically the same setup in a shake flashlight, to this setup. So, inside the coils, there will be magnets. The magnets inside the coil will be in opposition to the ring magnets---pushed from both left and right by the ring magnets.
It's my theory that cutting the ring magnet's field alternately on the left and right side will cause the magnets in the coil to oscillate right and left. The longer the coils, the more magnets I can fit inside to oscillate. There will have to be magnets near each end of the coil, so I plan to link them inside the coil with rods.
The coils should be exposed to moving magnetic fields from both the ring magnet's field surging back onto the coil after the inductor passes and from the oscillating magnets inside as the inductor cuts the ring magnet's field on one side at a time.
The two ring magnets pushing against the coil magnets equally from both sides will cause the coil magnets to equalize---find a resting place between the two opposing static forces. The moment the spinning inductor changes that push on only one side at a time, the push on the coil magnets will not be equal anymore and the coil magnets will have to readjust position. That constant readjustment will be seen by the coil as movement of the magnetic fields inside it. That should generate more electricity than using the ring magnets alone on the coils.
Because it takes less energy to spin the inductors than it does to turn magnets by coils, I'm hoping to add this setup to wind turbines so they can produce more electricity in lower force winds, or using a lower HP engine to turn it for fuel economy, or using a Stirling to shove an inductor between the coil & magnets, or even seeing if it will power itself.
Because Lenz's Law should not negatively affect rotation of the inductors, input to output ratios should change from standard generator's known ratios, which are based on Lenz's Law.
I don't know what the final results will be, and neither does anyone else. I haven't been able to find this setup anywhere else on the web with the searches I've tried, so this might be a new approach to energy generation. Or, it might fail to perform and have no applications in the real world.
Let me clarify something. I have no intention of patenting an energy device---ever. I have no intention of withholding any information necessary for independent replication. I have no aspirations of fame from inventing an energy device.
My dream is to invent a super efficient energy generation machine made from off-the-shelf parts, develope it to a usable level, and freely share all information for independent replication. If I do this right, no one will ever know for sure it was me and my partner who did this and these machines will go viral and be used by people all over this world without mass manufacturing or patents or government control.
When I post something like this looking for input, it is in the hope that others will get interested enough to try it out as well or direct others who might be interested to the post. I'm trying to freely share something that might be important to us all, nothing more. No fame or fortune or ego is involved. If someone comes in and figures out how to get it to work better, that would be great. My eye is on the prize, and that prize is a future where energy production is clean, almost as inexpensive as the air we breathe, and solidly in the hands of We-The-People.
This machine passes a metal tab between magnets and coils. That's it. This is something that can easily and cheaply be replicated by local craftsmen/women just about anywhere in the world from locally available parts. Applications in personal transportation and home energy production are the goal.
I've already shared this with others I see working on Lenzless generators in the hopes they'll try adding linear generators to their setups and continue to share their designs and progress freely. I'm posting it here because there are members who are capable of putting the info to use or evaluating the idea, or advising.
I'm not qualified to accomplish cold fusion, build a thorium reactor, or develope some of the other exotic power sources. But, I can pass metal tabs on a disc between magnets and coils to produce electricity with less input than current generators subject to Lenz's Law that still use technology over a century old. So can you.
If you know someone with a background in electrical or engineering, please direct them here. If you have seen this same setup elsewhere, post a link. If this is doable and has advantages over current generators, we need to jump on it quickly.
And we're off. I experimented with this concept. It works.
I linked several small magnets with rods and put them in a tube. Next, I fastened the tube to a plank. I fastened two ring magnets from an old microwave at each end of the tube, leaving room to insert tin pieces between the ring magnets and the tube. Both ring magnets repell against the magnet closest to it inside the tube. Next, I ran two pieces of tin between each ring magnet and the tube, first the right side, then the left, ect... The magnets inside the tube moved side to side, just like they're supposed to.
Next step is to wind coils around the tube, put the inductors on an axle, and check the output.
This is going to be a way to generate electricity that is not subject to Lenz's Law. For better or worse, I'm moving forward with this.
