OU senior member Avalon appears to have done it, that sure was quick! Looking at his other videos he does have some background work/research already under his belt in this field. He calls it ferroresonance! But let us not be surprised... so far at least, he is not sharing! Congratulations Avalon! Does part 1 mean that you will make another video and share what is in the box?
A big congratulations and a big thank you is in order for Smoky2 for inspiring what appears to be your successful build!I really hope someone else can also put this together quickly... AND THEN SHARE IT!
I put the following post up yesterday in the hopes that someone would figure out how to it....It seems that Avalon 'got it'
Posted yesterday here... http://overunity.com/16340/the-secret-to-the-self-oscillating-transformer/msg471078/#msg471078
I recently read an excellent comment by Smoky2 that makes a lot of sense and may provide some substantial insight on how to achieve success with building an OU self oscillating transformer. The most attractive of all free energy devices, think of Floyd Sweet's device, and also Steven Mark's TPU.
Floyd Sweet first noticed the 'self oscillating' effect in a conventional transformer that continued to run after he had turned it off. I think Floyd made the classic mistake at the time, he departed from the successful device he already had in his hot little hands and moved onto to something entirely different, namely a conditioned Barium magnet with a set of cross wound coils that operated in a entirely different manner and wound up being very hard to understand and also perfect. There was nothing wrong with the effect he was already seeing. He should have measured and documented all the different parameters and tried to perfect that very simple device rather than moving onto something exotic that never did go anywhere.
Nikola Tesla demonstrated the exponential free energy effects of self oscillation when he attached a small oscillating device to a structural beam in a warehouse in the New York research facility he occupied before moving to Colorado Springs. The device set up a resonance in the molecular structure of the steel beam that began to build until the entire building started to shake. Apparently the whole neighborhood became alarmed at what was taking place and Tesla had to pick up a hammer and smash the device before the building was destroyed. One can also think of the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge due to effects of resonance. A gust of wind caused it to begin to oscillate and it picked up momentum until it broke. Free energy from resonance.
Now please read Smoky's comment that has been taken from this page.... http://overunity.com/9749/aether-vortex-energy-converter-avec-device-full-disclosure/msg469717/#msg469717
I'll try to relay this from a different perspective...
You have an inductor, a piece of iron, or a ceramic semiconductor torroid, a pencil, whatever...
with no inducing field, all the atoms are randomly pointing in any direction, their magnetic moments are everywhere, canceling each other out
there is no detectable magnetic field outside the material.
when we bring a magnetic field close to the material, the field domains line up opposing that field.
mostly in the same direction.
Now, this takes time,... to turn them, so from a "neutral" point, it takes time X to orient the atoms against the inducing field.
(this is approx. 1/4 the self-resonant freq, but follow)
We now alternate the inducing field to the opposite direction, causing the atoms in the inductor to flip the other way.
This takes time.
How much time? well, if you don't take a break between flipping one way to the other (because to do so would add +1/4 f)
It takes exactly 1/2 of the self-resonant freq.
So,. if you change the inducing magnetic field, at a frequency exactly twice that if the time it takes for the poles to flip from one direction to the other...
you effectively flip poles at the maximum frequency the inductor can flip at.
Now, if we flip at a speed slower than that, the magnetic field domains revert to the "neutral state", and have to be brought back to the oriented state.
This causes a loss in energy, due to reluctance.
If you flip the field at a speed faster than that, you do not get full induction within the core, reluctive losses are much greater.
Now, some of you that have been paying attention have noticed by now that there is a difference in the self-resonant freq. and the max freq. posted on the data sheet.
(good job if that's you!!)
There are some tiny differences in the inductor material, try as we may to perfect it, That causes the "perfect balance" in magnetic flux that we desire,
to vary slightly from the fastest possible that we can flip the field.
In a non-superconductor material, this frequency is less than the maximum.
In a true superconductor, the self-resonant frequency of an inductor is the same as its' maximum frequency.
::::For the language barrier -- those who don't understand what I mean when I talk about the frequency of the inductor
It is a factor of the response time of the inductor, meaning how many times the field domains flip from one pole to the other and back again, per second (Hz).
This corresponds exactly to both the input frequency and the output of any secondary coil(s).
This is affected by the diameter of the wire, length of the wire, number of coils, diameter(s) of coiling, and to some degree, distance from the inductor.
What it means for a system to be "resonant", is that the frequencies are coherent with one another.
They do not disrupt each others patterns.
This can be frequencies that are the same.
Frequencies that are divisible, or multiples of one another.
or frequencies that meet as certain corresponding "nodes",
for instance 1/4th or 1/2 nodes, or nodes that may only meet once every 133 cycles.....
But what happens at these nodes is that the amplitudes of the signals are increased, not just for one, but both or all of the combining signals.
This is not just an additive quantity, but can be exponential at reoccurring intervals.
you notice the difference when you are operating in a resonant mode, because the coil and the inductor will "ring" at these resonant frequencies.
increase in amplitude. voltage /or current spikes depending on the situation. In electronics we generally treat this as a problem.
it blows out capacitors, burns resistors and diodes, fries traces on our circuit boards..
There are MANY MANY solutions to these problems. Look at the base of a radio broadcast antanae, theres a million dollar "solution" right there at the bottom.
If a resonant frequency is in the audible spectrum, you may actually hear an increase in the sound coming out of the inductor.
if you scope it, you see an increase in amplitudes
Here's your first piece of "garbage" for the day.
Take an inductor of your choice, and look at the manufacturers data sheet, find the self-resonant frequency
and engineer two coils around it to a coherent frequency of that.
Then send the self-resonant frequency though one of the coils, using a signal generator
and take a scope image of the other.
Now compare this image to that of other frequencies NOT in the self-resonant mode.
Now you have a visual representation of the inductive losses that are present in ALL operating modes outside the resonance of the circuit. (end of Smoky's comment) See the link above for another explanation he also offered.
This can not be that difficult for some of you who have the knowledge of the formulas and the test equipment in your labs.
I suspect that Floyd Sweet's transformer developed a short in one of the windings, or perhaps even two of them, which provided the ideal conditions for self oscillation and free energy. Just the right amount of inductance / reactance that created a sweet spot.
Try to grasp the fact that we have always produced free energy from magnetic fields. The torque supplied to the shaft of the generator is not the energy, or the electromotive force that comes out of the generator. The supplied magnetic field, be it permanent or electromagnetic, provides the electrons that are induced to flow in the output coils. The torque that is supplied to the shaft, is consumed or used up by, the fight between the supplied field and the induced field through the effects of Lenz's law, back EMF. It may be just a matter of dumping the collapsing field into the right capacitor and properly tuned coils.
I do not have the technical/mathematical background to do the computations/measurements and the experiments, but I do grasp the fact that this should not be that hard for some of you to figure out. And if you do figure it out, please share it here immediately, time is short and the world is falling apart.
Any transformer should suffice. It's a matter of coming up with the right capacitance to match just the right amount of inductance and reactance..... Steven Mark's commented somewhere after he had sold out... that their experiments with rare earth magnets were resulting in extremely high outputs. Probably just a primary and a secondary with the right amount of turns and wire gauges to compliment one another, and then the right capacitor to keep it going.
I expect that Floyd Sweet witnessed the phenomena on a 400 or 600 Volt step down transformer.
