If both the Linevich device and the Aspden effect are real............then, it should be possible to remove energy from a spinning rotor during a fraction of its rotation and then use LESS energy in pulses to maintain that rotation.
So, the two observations appear consistent - and useful. Was this seeming 'fact' observed by anyone else - Bedini, maybe - using a pulse motor with a rotor?
You asked: "Was this seeming 'fact' observed by anyone else - Bedini, maybe - using a pulse motor with a rotor?"
My reply: Yes many others, myself included and referred to repeatedly in my own work. Excerpts from my website with links below.
"• FLYWHEELS have a “threshold velocity” at which they DEVELOP more Kinetic energy per second than is required to be input to maintain that given VELOCITY!" - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/dynamics.html
"Moreover an ordinary electric motor with a properly sized solid Matter flywheel installed is doing the work of rotating it, and consumes less electrical power per second maintaining the Velocity of the flywheel than the Kinetic energy developed by the flywheel per second." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/reality.html
"The work of this system is only to maintain a designed Velocity of all other systems by maintaining Volumes of Matter in motion at the designed Velocity." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/open%20source.html
"You should notice there has been no “fuel” has been mentioned. For the simple fact that after being placed in motion the SOLID MATTER IN MOTION DEVELOPS more energy than is being input to the Prime mover as long as VELOCITY is MAINTAINED. This system can be arranged to be self sustaining because of its over efficient design and the fact that the Laws of Nature support and allow it." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/paths.html
"KEY II.2 UNDERSTAND Nature shows you its Mechanical energy is that of its Matter in Motion it maintains in motion at a Velocity of its choosing to DEVELOP whatever amount of energy it needs to do whatever work it decides needs to be done using any of its own forces the move matter in and through its space over its Time." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/knowledge.html
"4. A Mechanical method and means to extract, convert and transfer Kinetic energy between solid matter objects as high pressure Mechanical energy pulses to develop/introduce non equilibrium into a system of inherent equilibrium,
5. A Mechanical means to split Time between Kinetic energy development, extraction and transfer of the high pressure Mechanical energy pulses,
6. A greater volume of matter in motion absorbing/receiving the Mechanical energy pulses at a Mechanical advantage, developing additional Kinetic energy and driving an electrical alternator/generator continuously." -
A wheel is Matter having potential energy. Once in motion it has Kinetic energy. Putting it in motion from rest required power and force for a period of time to overcome Inertia and friction.
We know we can pulse power/force into a wheel for periods of time that are less than one full revolution of the wheel and Kinetic energy in the wheel will carry it around to get another pulse, time after time. That is what we do in piston engines to make Horsepower, converting combustible fuels into heat energy, pressure, and force to act on levers that convert linear motion to rotary to get Torque and RPM." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/time.html
"A flywheel may also be used to supply intermittent pulses of energy at transfer rates that exceed the abilities of its energy source, or when such pulses would disrupt the energy supply (e.g., public electric network)." - from http://www.backgauges.com/Gen-E-Sys%20II/dynamics.html
A couple years ago Grahm (Grumage) built a test rig to look for the "Aspden effect", AFAIK he did not see or find any such effect. In all my years of work with Matter in motion (flywheels) it has never been noticed and I did even spend a few hours looking myself after having talked with Grahm about his efforts.
As for the "Linevich device", well I've been down a similar road on my own never even being aware of him until reading his name here. It is another path much can be learned from, just not all that easy or "practical" IMHO.
Bottom line is: Regardless of Aspden and Linevich being reality or not: Kinetic energy is mechanical energy that can be used to MAKE MORE of the same
, over and over again. That is reality that does not depend on them, or any of "us", nor can "we" change it.
