German Inventor solves permanent magnet motor puzzle

The inventor Thomas Engel demonstrates a motor to us that never runs out of fuel, because it works with the strength of neodymium magnets – engelmotor leaving us a bit disoriented.

Normally, you wouldn’t even have to bother to read beyond this point, because something like this can’t truly exist. But this time we’re not talking about some crank with an idea. This one was honored in 1972 with the prestigious Rudolf Diesel Medal for inventors, he has well over a hundred patents to his name and has been lecturing at universities all over the world.

The inventor lives in Baden-Baden and he has a place in Lucerne, Switzerland, where the motor is located. So we drive off with mixed feelings to beautiful Switzerland.

Engel’s motor is running. During the three hours we are there, it is chugging along quietly, interrupted only by some experiments we will be talking about later. There is no noticeable development of heat. The seems familiar, the motor obtains its power from neodymium (NdFeB) magnets. Those are the strongest permanent magnets known, a disk as little as a one-Euro coin can hold about kilograms of weight. Neodymium is a rare earth element, much used in electronics. Magnets made out of this material are used in nuclear spin tomography and in wind generators, they drive water pumps of heavy trucks and keep tools steady.

The magnets are manufactured using a mixture of neodymium, iron and boron which is pressed into form and sintered. They are then magnetized with a strong electric impulse. The energy used for magnetization, however, is not what keeps the magnet working. Several suppliers of those magnets have assured us that the power of the magnets doesn’t diminish – even after years of use. So it seems that the magnets can do work constantly without getting degraded. The only thing those magnets don’t like is great heat.Engel’s idea was that it should be possible to convert that power of the magnets into rotary motion. He built a machine made of brass, resembling a miniature lathe.

The rotor is a disc with magnets fixed to it. The shaft turns in ceramic bearings. A disc magnet fixed at the correct angle and distance from the rotor but which itself is able to rotate (Engel calls it the mirror) can affect the rotor magnets.

There is attractive and repulsive force, depending on the orientation of the poles: the rotor can thus be set in continuous motion, as long as the mirror keeps rotating. The mirror’s rotation regulates the speed of the rotor.

The exact form and disposition of the parts is difficult to ascertain, Engel had to experiment at length with those parameters. If the mirror is a tad too distant, the magnetic field breaks down.

On the other hand, if it is too close, the neodymium magnets will rip the construction apart. The mirror hangs in a kind of outrigger. Two electric wires connect to the lower end with crocodile clips. There is a tiny electric motor that rotates the mirror. So it isn’t possible to do without electricity altogether? The inventor signals his disagreement.
“Eight milliamperes at nine volts”, he says. That is only a control mechanism. The power at the shaft is much greater. Engel also thought about a mechanical drive for the mirror directly from the rotor shaft, but opted against this as it would considerably increase mechanical complexity.

We wanted to know more. The rotation is about 400 RPM. We don’t have an instrument to measure mechanical power. So we are having to use the finger brake. It is difficult to stop the rotation by grabbing the shaft. The motor only comes to a standstill after considerable heat developed on the calluses of our hands.
A little hand made propeller out of plexiglass doesn’t impress the motor at all; we would really like to know how much power the machine turns out. With a bit of dexterity, one can turn the mirror by hand and set the rotor in motion. There is hardly any resistance when turning the mirror. We therefore hazard an assertion: The output felt at the shaft is clearly greater than the input needed to give the impulse. Of course measurement was only done with human sensors.

Mr. Engel is convinced that his machine uses the enormous energy which is inherent in quanta, those inconceivably small components of atoms which were first described by the physicist Max Planck in the early part of the last century. He therefore calls his machine an “quantum deviation apparatus”. – German Inventor solves permanent magnet motor puzzle

Converting Static Eletricicity to Usable Energy

Tesla was right. Not my Electronics teacher in Tech School. One of the first things they told us was static electricity can’t be used for wimhurst-led doing work. That really never made much sense to me becouse Capasitors Store their charge Using a Static Electricity. Now here is a real short video on a Wimhurst generator running a led. Thanks NTezla for posting this. NTezla I assume made the transformer (that PVC pipe) the generator hooks to, there in the center before the circut and LED. It steps down the voltage and steps up the current. basicly thats what transformers do. Then is rectified and turned to DC and into the led. If you missed my first Wimhurst post see it here

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.

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.
