Gravity Feed Wheel: Perpetual Motion Machines(hypothetical?)

PMW This Video Covers Several Prototypes and designs from 1200s  through to 1900s of so called “Perpetual Motion Machines”.The main reason there are no Perpetual Motion Machines is because, Machines Brake. The question I have is “If you have a Prototype That Works,? what happens when you Scale it up?”

Ram Pump: Water Pump, Runs off The Water It Pumps

Between 1796 and 1820 the Ram pump design was perfected. A hydraulic ram has only two moving parts, a spring or weight loadedrampump “waste” valve sometimes known as the “clack” valve and a “delivery” check valve, making it cheap to build, easy to maintain, and very reliable. In addition, there is a drive pipe supplying water from an elevated source, and a delivery pipe, taking a portion of the water that comes through the drive pipe to an elevation higher than the source.

Super Capacitors As Power Source:BlueShift Helium

This novel power-storage system not only allows their Helium speakers to juice up in just five minutes, but Helium-Speakers-537x314 (1) it plays for six hours, and it is designed to last a lifetime. This is a great new thing Coming to light, Supercapacitors Can be installed in cars to replace the battery and now Blueshift has created the world’s first wireless speakers powered by supercapacitors. This Portland, Oregon-based Company has went above and beyond the call of duty. Rechargeable Batteries are on there way out.

Wind Turbine DIY: VAWT Designed To Run In Lower Wind Speeds

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines Are Great At Low Wind Speedsvawt-2

The advantage of a VAWT is that they utilise space and they start to operate at 3 mile an hour wind. The higher in the air you place them the better the air current is and that goes for the traditional wind turbines also. If you live in a area that has lots of wind a turbine is the way to go. I haven’t seen any large wind turbines that put out the wattage I want and that are economical enough for me so this one is going on the drawing board for a future project. Thanks laidofftomass for posting this on youtube it is one of the Better ones I have seen.

Solar Collector: Without the Expensive Sun Tracker

039-108-01-fig1About 5 years ago and inventor figured out how to build a solar concentrator that doesn’t need to follow the sun or need to be adjusted. It works well as a solar Water Heater and could also be used to heat your home in the winter. The average solar dish or solar parabolic needs to be aligned with the sun every 5 minutes or the focus is not on target. Here are a few of the Pic’s he shared.

Works in summer and winter, You A Line East to West  and it dose the rest. In my design I would have 8 to 10 Absorption tubes on the collector to maximize the Heat Transfer. Then I would have the heat directed to a Stirling Engine or an array of Peltier Units to convert the heat to a usable energy.

039-108-01-fig2 In fig 2 it shows the suns rays hitting the Reflector from morning to midDay from angles of 10° to 60° and where the focus will be at those angels. I guess now you would understand Why i would have  8 to 10 Absorption Tubes. Hope this info helps you to build a cleaner Energy Resource.


Thermal Electric Generator,Look Ma No Moving Parts.

Peltier units transform the difference of heat to electricity. They Utilize Bismuth, an element that has Paramagnetic 170px-Bi-crystalMagnetocaloric properties. Put into simple terms it converts heat into DC Electricity and can charge a Battery. Quite a few people are testing it’s possibilities. Using every type of heat source from a tea candle to solar. The best part about these units is that they are Solid State and Have no moving parts. I would love to build a large array of these modules and sandwich them in between a piece of steel and a piece of aluminum heat sink to charge my Battery Bank. Here is a pic of crystallized bismuth the material that these units are made of.

John Searl Free Energy Generator: Breaking The Laws of Physics?

Searl’s generator Has been confirmed by multiple Labs to be a free self running energy device.seg_cross-section
The device is a large replica of an atom. Here is a cross section of its design. The generator was invented in the late 1940s and has been over looked by most institutions and dismissed as impossible.

These concepts have been proven in hundreds of laboratories all over the world, yet never see the light of day. If the new energy technologies were set free world wide the change would be profound. It would affect everybody, it would be applicable everywhere. These technologies are absolutely the most important thing that have happened in the history of the world.   – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor.

Six Candle power Stirling Engine

six-candle-power-stirlingAdded PDFs at bottom of post.

Thanks approtechie For posting this to YouTube this is a 6 candle Power Stirling Engine. As in an earlier post I explained that a Stirling Engine takes a heat source and a cold source and converts that into mechanical energy. Ideally you would want to use hydrogen or helium as the gas that fills the engine, because of their ability to absorb and conduct heat but most Stirling engines use the air we breath as the gas medium. The air is heated and it expands then a displacement piston moves the hot air to the cold surface and it contracts causing a vacuum. This moves the displacement piston the other direction and the process starts all over again.

Here is a PDF on Air Engine’s , Plans for small Stirling Engine.

The build

A Purely Capacitive Generator

In the mid 1800’s James Wimshurst built His generator that creates a high voltage out of thin air. He doesn’t use magnets to get the voltage out of the air, it is truly 100% Capacitive. The Van de Graaff generator was its predecessor and was highly unpredictable because of the poles shifting from Positive to Negative often without warning. Wimshurst’s design fix that problem, so it can be used to get a Stable Positive and Negative Pole, and energy can be collected Reliably. Here is a MIT Video That Explains the Process. After you watch it Think WHERE IS THE ENERGY STORED?

Well if you Guessed in side the Glass Beaker you are mostly right, it is stored on the surface of the inside and outside of the Glass jar. It is stored as Ions on the surface area of the isolator that’s how capacitors work. They use Static Electricity to Store there Energy, yep its just like rubbing your feet on the Carpet. Now Remember Capacitors Love voltage and Hate Current. Inductors Love Current and Hate Voltage But those will be held for another Post. Here is a charging Diagram Wimshurst_Machine_Charge_Cycle

Energy Conversion Conundrum

I  Started this blog to help get the word out about Energy Conversion. It has always bothered me that they teach us that “You Can’t Get more energy Out than You Put in” . Well Alpha_StirlingMy response  to that is “Then Ex-plane the Sun, Nuclear Weapons, and Refrigerator Magnets”.   They can’t  using the laws they have created. Its really a Lot easier than they make it sound. The Secret is Quite Simple 90 ° (90 degrees), take for instance the Stirling Engine the one here has the pistons at a 90° angle. It takes a heat Source and a Cold Source and turns it into mechanical energy to run Quite a few things, in the early 1800’s an engine built by Stirling was employed pumping water in a Quarry. That was almost 200 years ago. Now we have solar Stirling engine’s that are 80% more efficient than Solar panels
