In the United States, 90 percent of electricity comes from thermoelectric power plants—coal, nuclear, natural gas, and oil—that require cooling. The PowerPot has no moving parts or batteries, and since the thermoelectric technology is built into the bottom of the pot it can produce electricity from a wide variety of heat sources. “Converting waste heat into electric power, for example, using vehicle exhaust, is a near-term ‘green’ application for such materials.”
Generators have been constructed to use solar, natural gas, propane, butane, kerosene, jet fuels, and wood, to name a few heat sources. The device generates electricity via the Seebeck Effect, where electricity is produced from a temperature differential applied across the device. Working within these limits, however, it is possible to fabricate custom modules that are particularly suited for standard use.
Of course, everything has its limitations, but with a unit the size of the one in the following video, you’ll easily be able to power small gadgets you have around your home. Be aware that there are practical limits on element geometry due to the fragility of crystalline Bismuth telluride material. Also be aware that the Bismuth melts at 520.7 °F so too much heat will melt the units.
Thermoelectric waste heat recovery is the process of recapturing this lost heat and converting it to electrical power. By using the modules “in reverse,” however, whereby a temperature differential is applied across the faces of the module, it is possible to generate electrical power. A bigger unit would serve higher purposes.
A first version of it was invented in 1762 by Swedish professor Johan Carl Wilcke. It is a simple manual capacitive generator used to produce electrostatic charge via the process of electrostatic induction.
The electrophorus consists of a dielectric plate (originally a ‘cake’ of resinous material such as pitch or wax, but in modern versions plastic is used) and a metal plate with an insulating handle.The dielectric does not transfer a significant fraction of its surface charge to the metal because the microscopic contact is poor. Instead the electrostatic field of the charged dielectric causes the charges in the metal plate to separate. It develops two regions of charge — the positive charges in the plate are attracted to the side facing down toward the dielectric, charging it positively, while the negative charges are repelled to the side facing up, charging it negatively, with the plate remaining electrically neutral as a whole. Then, the side facing up is momentarily grounded (which can be done by touching it with a finger), draining off the negative charge. Finally, the metal plate, now carrying only one sign of charge, is lifted.
The UBUNTU Movement is part of the Global Energy Movement and we have a very good understanding of what is going on in the world of energy supply. It is the most fiercely guarded sector of our planet. Any one that threatens to upset this control is swiftly removed. But free, alternative and renewable energy has been discovered and presented to the world many times in human history. The most famous example is that of Nikola Tesla – who was funded by JP Morgan – one of the global banking elite and founder of the Federal Reserve System in the USA in 1913. Morgan was the one that destroyed all of Tesla’s research and credibility because the energy source that the brilliant inventor gave to the world for FREE – could not be metered. And so Morgan realised that he would not be able to charge people for the consumptions of electricity and decided to throw his lot in with Eddison, who did exactly what he was told. Many have tried to recreate Telsa’s radiant energy that could power everything imaginable – from cars, homes, boats to aeroplanes, but so far no one seems to have succeeded. Or have they?
There are thousands of scientists and inventors who have developed Free Energy devices, but they fear for their lives as they have seen many colleagues being bribed, silenced, threatened and even killed for the devices. Once these scientists know that the environment is safe to show off their inventions, they will come out in their thousands to give the world such technology for free.
Magnetic cooling is a promising new refrigeration technology boasting several advantages – ranging from lower energy consumption to eliminating the use of hazardous fluids – that combine to make it a much more environmentally friendly option than today’s standard fluid-compression form of refrigeration.
One novel magnetic cooling approach, developed by a team of Canadian-Bulgarian researchers, relies on solid magnetic substances called magnetocaloric materials to act as the refrigerant in miniaturized magnetic refrigerators. As the team describes in the journal Applied Physics Letters,from AIP Publishing, these materials are the key to the development of a “green” cooling technology whose efficiency is able to scale directly with the generated magnetocaloric effect.
The magnetocaloric effect is “the thermal response of a magnetic material to the change of an external magnetic field, which manifests as a change in its temperature,” explained Mohamed Balli, a researcher in the physics department at the Université de Sherbrooke in Quebec, Canada.
Ferromagnetic materials, for example, are known to heat up when magnetized and to cool down when the magnetic field is removed.
“The presence of a magnetic field makes ferromagnetic materials become more ordered. This is accompanied by disorder within the atomic lattice, which causes an increase in the material’s temperature,” Balli said. “Inversely, the absence of a magnetic field means that the atomic lattice is more ordered and results in a temperature decrease. Magnetic refrigeration essentially works by recapturing produced cooling energy via a heat transfer fluid, such as water.”
The researchers originally set out to measure the standard magnetocaloric effect in the multiferroic compound HoMn2O5, because this material possesses an insulating behavior that prevents energy losses associated with electric currents passing through it when altering its magnetic field.
But, much to their surprise, they discovered that a giant magnetocaloric effect can be obtained by simply rotating a crystal of HoMn2O5 within a constant magnetic field – without requiring moving it in and out of the magnetic field zone (which is the case for materials exhibiting standard magnetocaloric effects).
This discovery is an important step toward the development of magnetic cooling technology, and will likely lead to efficient, “green” cooling systems for both domestic and industrial applications. “Using the rotating magnetocaloric effect means that the energy absorbed by the cooling machine can be largely reduced,” Balli noted. “It also opens the door to building simplified, efficient, and compact magnetic cooling systems in the future.”
Next, the team plans to explore the possibility of improving the rotating magnetocaloric effect in HoMn2O5 crystals and related materials
In a Wimshurst machine, the two insulated discs and their metal sectors rotate in opposite directions passing the crossed metal neutralizer bars and their brushes. An imbalance of charges is induced, amplified, and collected by two pairs of metal combs with points placed near the surfaces of each disk. These collectors are mounted on insulating supports and connected to the output terminals. The positive feedback increases the accumulating charges exponentially until the dielectric breakdown voltage of the air is reached and an electric spark jumps across the gap.
This can be the power source for a tesla coil and be utilized to transmit wireless energy.
I am personalty building one, at this time
recycle ordinary trash into hi-voltage capacitors.
here is video on the current build
Demonstration of a dissectible capacitor or dissectible Leyden jar and an explanation of how it works. I charge it up to a high voltage using a Wimshurst machine and then take it apart. When I do, the voltage on the plates rises and, through ionization, charge moves from the plates to the dielectric container. This leaves the plates mostly discharged. I can even touch the plates together, to prove they’re discharged. When I reassemble the capacitor/Leyden jar, the charge is still on the dielectric and so I get a spark.

Better Tuned Hendershot Tank Circuit
In March of 2014, a small group of independent engineers and developers released to the public open-source plans for a continuously running fuel-less electricity generator based on a patent by Nikola Tesla, and re-designed by inventor James Robitaille. Calling it the Quantum Energy Generator, or QEG, the portable device is supposedly capable of producing enough electricity to power a modern home, and is about the size and weight of a home gas generator.
“The Quantum Electric Generator system (QEG) is an adaptation of one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented electrical
generator / dynamo / alternator designs. The particular patent referenced is No. 511,916, titled simply “Electric
Generator”, and dated January 2, 1894 (see back of this manual). The adaptation is a conversion from a linear
system, to a rotary system.
The QEG prototype is scaled to produce electrical power in the range of 10-15 kW (kilowatts) continuously, and
can be set up to provide either 120 Volt or 230-240 Volt single phase output. We are also planning future
designs to provide 3-phase power.” [Fix The World]
Developed by an organization known as the ‘Fix the World Council,’ and promoted by the lively Hopegirl, the prototype for the QEG was recently crowd-funded by over 600 independent contributors, and the plans for the QEG have been made available to the public for download here: qeg-user-manual-3-25-14.pdf
