Title: TD replications
Post by: Floor on November 18, 2016, 05:14:23 PM
This topic is being created for presentations of replications of
the "TD" and similar measurement sets.

It's not intended for discussion of theory of, or the explinations of, per say.

Hello floor and everyone

The below video is a replication (a la gotoluc) of your Permanent Magnet Twist Drive (torque amplifier)
Also included below is a pic of the videos test data which seems to support (on my test device) a 37% Torque Gain on the output side compared to the torque needed on the input side.

You may want to make some popcorn as the video is kind of long (18 min) since I took the time to first explain the basic effect for newcomers and youtubers to understand how the basic effect works.

Kind regards

Luc

Hi Luc,

Great setup and thanks for taking the arduous job of building and showing it.
Of course, we need to thank first to Floor to openly share his own work on the idea.

I agree - great set-up and data-taking. Thank you, Luc.

It is indeed curious.

Is it possible to convert the action here to a continuous motion?  I suppose it would involve oscillating (engage-disengage) as well as rotary (torque) motions ...

A small test device that would keep moving, would be an awesome Christmas present to the world!

Thanks Gyula

That's correct!... the credit goes to floor, it is his hard work that I basically copied (at the end) and shared my results to further confirm his findings.

Hopefully now this will encourage the great minds to suggest mechanisms which could capitalize on this effect to turn this into continuous rotation.

To everyone

Please keep in mind that this topic was created by floor for replicators and people who would like to have a discussion about a replicated device.
With that said, here would not be the place to discuss your general opinions or obtain information about the magnet Twist Drive effect.

Here is floor's original topic "Work from 2 magnets > 19%" which should be used for general discussions:
http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/ (http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/)

and another topic called "Magnets, motion and measurement" was created for beginners to discuss basic physics:

Luc

I have the input that you have as engage\disengage as lever arm since it is a linear motion,, and the output as the torque arm since it is rotary.

So I should of said resetting the output to start position.

With many similar testbeds over the years I have usually had a cost to rotate the output back into position,, so there are 3 inputs and 1 output most of the time with what I have done,, I was thinking that you would have the same condition.
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on November 30, 2016, 10:03:58 PM
Watched the new video,,

The 16 point resolution was not too bad actually and maybe I will calculate out the 32 points.

What is the actual degrees of rotation and the actual arm lengths,, just if I want to have the particulars close,,

With the system in the disengaged condition,, how much are you putting in to reset the output arm?

The weight of the arms does not matter since the in and out relative to the source of force,, gravity,, is exactly the same they cancel, but you still have a field interaction that will be influencing the disc rotating.

ETA:
Just as a ball park guesstimate I think you will find an average of around .917 above the weight of the arm to reset,,
I will double check that

What is the actual degrees of rotation and the actual arm lengths,, just if I want to have the particulars close,

The input arm has 80 degrees of travel and output is has 40 degrees. Both arms are exactly 12 inches from center of axle to where the scale attaches

With the system in the disengaged condition,, how much are you putting in to reset the output arm?

If I was to use the gained torque from the output to reset the output arm back up but keep in mind this is not what the test device was designed to do, as the device sits now, it would takes an average of 0.4 foot pounds from the 0.44 foot pounds left over.
This amount could easily be reduced in less than half with no extra from the input or even possibly eliminated with a design to do such a thing.
I'm sure there are better ways to go about it then bringing the output arm back up. This is what the Sunny Miller device is attempting to do. Keep it circulating.

I understand that this is not a looping device but a testbed to measure the energy taken and given,, force times distance traveled.

Without the torque arm reset value I am showing 164% in my spreadsheet,, and from my own experience I am guessing that the overage is the cost of that reset,, but I could be wrong.

Or a 3 disc setup so that the linear stroke moves to engaged for one disc but disengaged for the other.

This might, in the beginning, not allow so much conservation of momentum,, unless a flywheel was on a one way bearing.

What this would do is get rid of the cost to reset the torque arm and leave you with the double cost of the engage and disengage at the same time.

One of the  ones I did many years ago,, I used gravity and had the torque accelerate an arm with weight upwards,, the speed at the end of rotation would have the weight carry on further up and around and I was trying to use the return of the weight back down to reset.

Sorry Floor for the intrusion.

Dear webby1

Can you post a video, pics or drawing of your device. It would help to visualize your explanation

Thanks

Luc
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on December 01, 2016, 07:29:12 AM
It was close enough to the one you have to call it.

With mine I had the torque arm swing upwards when released,, the arm was connected  to another arm( to push the arm up when it went up) that was on a bearing on the same shaft so it would keep moving when the torque arm stopped.

The thing that I noticed, and why I went that way, was the rate of acceleration increase as the magnets got closer to lining up,, with the force change by the square of the change in distance it made sense.

It is easy enough to set the arm and weight,, the lower the starting point for the arm the less force needed to start acceleration.  I changed the weight and that start angle to get what looked to me to be the best bang for the buck, that would be the most weight shot up the furthest arc,, like yours I did not use a full 90 degrees, closer to 75 IIRC,, but yours being even shorter might be better for that.

By the way,, increasing force does not always mean an increase,, your system went from 164% without the torque arm reset down to 141%

The momentum could maybe be a flywheel that can freewheel one way so you could have the luxury of time to slide the linear magnet from one side to the other,, I never got around to finishing that one,, sidetracked by other stuff.

@Webby

Please, not considered an intrusion by me either, I appreciate your Knowledge
and input.

But this topic is not for theories, nor design "improvements"... nor of or for an
"in the future working motor design" etc..

The project needs to have a robust body of evidence.
The project NEEDS and appreciates,... multiple (reasonably similar), well done and well described replications.

Some details are directly related to that goal, others will tend to clutter the topic or even worse
side track it.

If you will, ....please give us all, a fantastic replication, well described, ... and answer any an all
inquires as to it's mechanical operation.

Straight up empirical only, IE. videos, measurements, descriptions, calcs and so on.

I hope my reasoning for this understandable.

Thank you for participating

A couple of years ago I saw a video of a working machine which was identical to this concept using four or five rotor sections translating a reciprocal magnet motion to a rotating magnet disk. I believe the device had multiple patents over many years thus this is by no means a new technology.

The inventor also mentioned that out of the many working machines he had built only a few demonstrated efficiency high enough to warrant a practical machine. As such I think that rather than trying to reinvent the wheel 10 years too late some thought should go towards a more practical design. I will try to find the name of the inventor and the patents covering this effect if i can.

Good work, Luc!
It is indeed curious.  I've been thinking of ways to convert the action here to a continuous motion, using gravity to drop an upper magnet (at right angles) in close proximity to the lower magnet prior to the "twisting phase" - then using energy from the twisting phase to raise the upper magnet back up to the starting height then turn it 90deg to the starting position. That is the more difficult action to resolve (for me).

This would be a small model involving oscillating (engage-disengage) as well as rotary (torque) motions ...
A small test device that would keep moving would be an awesome Christmas present to the world!

1. A few degrees of rotation  of RO toward 90 deg. off from parallel with SL
(3 to 5 deg. ?)... is the optimal starting position for RO (in the same direction
it will rotate when RO's force is measured).

2.  But also RO must hit it's stop at 90 deg. off from parallel to SLand no farther.

A full 90 degs. of rotation will not be acheived.

3. Im not certain that the counter weight on the RO scale indicator as is.....
is giving the needed effect.

If it is, then,
when there are no magnetic force interactions Between RO and SL (one magnet removed ?)
the RO scale indicator will ballance (have no tendancy to rotate by gravity's pull at any
degree of it's rotation).

Don't rush it man......
It's bound to take some time to dial it all in.

Not sure I understand your suggestion

2.  But also RO must hit it's stop at 90 deg. off from parallel to SLand no farther.

Are you recommending the output torque arm (RO) should stop at the center of the torque cycle? (see chart below)
If so, why?... other then it would be next to free for the input torque arm to return to starting point

A full 90 degs. of rotation will not be acheived.

Why not?

3. Im not certain that the counter weight on the RO scale indicator as is.....

The counter weight was perfectly adjusted to create a zero gravity influence where ever the rotation arm is positioned. It was adjusted prior to bringing it in proximity of any ferromagnetic material or magnets.

In general, the maximum rotation motivating force is available
during the first part of the rotation....  this is not true during the
VERY FIRST FEW degrees of  rotation away from exact parallel.
because
The rotation motivating forces toward clock wise rotation are in
balance with the rotation motivating forces toward counter clock
wise, when RO is exactly parallel to SL

This cw to ccw balance shifts greatly.... within a few degrees of
rotation from exact parallel.

While

The linear motivating force (which pushing SL away) is at its absolute
maximum potential when RO and SL are exactly parallel.  This linear
force decreases substantially with a few degrees of rotation.

There is no need to do input against this absolute maximum, linear repelling
force, when the RO out doesn't give back its maximum until after
a few degrees of rotation from exact parallel.

Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: DrJones on December 05, 2016, 10:13:14 AM
Mechanical work - which is one form of energy - is defined in basic terms as
Work = Force X Distance moved.

For a rotating object, we apply a torque to get it to move/rotate.  Also, the distance moved = distance along a portion of a circle called an "arc", which = R x Theta (where the angle Theta is measured in radians= actually, unitless).
Then
Work = Force X Distance moved  = Force x R x Theta  = Torque x Theta, [/size]

So the work = mechanical energy = Torque x Theta, not just Torque alone.

I'm concerned that Theta has been left out in the analysis so far in this thread - and hope that Theta will be included in the future.

@gotoluc

Referring only to your videos 3 with the rectangular neos, I have always liked mechanical puzzles of weight and motion but this device I see is giving me a potential quandary.

You measured your reference data by putting your scale on the tip of each arm and lifting to record the measured "pull" weight at each increment.

But in your experiment the arm is being lifted by and from the center shaft via the length of one neo magnet so it has to fight against the full leverage of the arm, so the actual mechanical process of the experiment is not pulling the arm from the tip as you have tabulated.

Seems to me the base data should be taken at a point on the arm that starts at the shaft and goes not more then half the length of the neo magnet from the shaft since it is the shaft centered neo magnet's responding length that is turning the shaft that is lifting the arm.

What would your opinions be. So I am basically asking "Should the base data be taken at point 1 or 2 on the below drawing?", since for me the lift force required should be greater at point 1 then point 2. Or, am I blind to an obvious simplicity. I do not know for sure and maybe even if the data was taken at point 1, the final ratios would be the same and the final percentage outcome would also be the same.

By the way @gotoluc, your worksmanship is so fine and thanks for your always inquisitive and clear videos and works.

Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on December 05, 2016, 01:56:44 PM
At point 2 there is less force than point 1 BUT the (length of arm * Force) will be the same for both points.

((2*PI)/360)*degrees rotated <--- this is Radians.

Multiply this by the Nm or Lb/Ft,, with Nm you need not convert the answer to get J.

Torque is length of arm * the force on the arm.

If you are going from step to step then you take ((torqueA + torqueB)*0.5)
Where torqueA is the previous step and torqueB is the current step so you have the average step torque, or the other way around where torqueA is the current step and torqueB is the next step,, but you need to do it the same way.

then if you used a spreadsheet you would have a line that would be

=((2*pi)/360)*degreesrotatted*((torqueA*torqueB)*.5)

Well, I did the test and the results are surprisingly the same 31% gain.
In the previous test 3 the output rotation arm (Ro) traveled 140 degrees and the results were also 31% gain.
See both test data below. First is test 4 and the second is test 3
The disengage in test 4 is unmeasurable (less the 5 grams)

Hi wattsup

the reason for the distance on the arms is I originally built it to measure foot pound of torque.
To my knowledge this is the way to measure foot pound or in my newer tests foot grams.

Hope this helps?

Hello Gotoluc ,

I follow your work for many years now , and it's always a great pleasure to see your vidéos ...

Looking at your 3th vidéo for the TD réplication , I think there is a measure missing .
You've got 3 Step
1 - you engage the linéare arm ( it's the first data for the input work )
2 - you mesure the output torque ( it 's the only output work )
3 - you disengage the linéare arm ( it' the seconde data for the input work )

but
4 - you need to reset the position of the ouput arm for complete the cycle , i will be curious of the work it need ... This is for me a third data for the input work )

Two questions

1. The conversion of torque to work is needed,
in order
to state the actions in terms of Joules of work. Correct ?

2. But  that conversion to joules, will not change the RATIOS

@Gotoluc

DrJones makes a good point of clarification.

The reasons for my usage of round levers (pulleys) and conversions
of degrees of rotation into the linear fall of the weights are probably
pretty clear at this point.

I stopped short of the conversion of grams into newton, averaging, and
calculations of joules.

But even, simply the degrees times weight of each set compared to each other
will still give the same ratios ? as  their conversions to joules will to each other ???

I have asked DrJones this question ?

I'm guessing you have already realized that the lifting on the (rotating magnet)
indicator / lift arm is against the magnetic force between the RO magnet and the SL
magnet.

It takes a little while to grok the motions and interactions in the "TD" unit, and then
yet more time, for this to settle in.  No worries though, after 2 years of the TD, I'm
still some times befuddled.

@Luc

some observations

Your build successfully demonstrates that the SL becomes nearly
free from the linear motivating forces between it and RO when
RO is at 90 from parallel to SL.

SL needs to be very far from RO,  before RO will be nearly free
from rotation motivating forces, between it and SL.

also see the attached files.

your device needs further modifications and dialing in.

Yes, I agree!

SL needs to be very far from RO,  before RO will be nearly free
from rotation motivating forces, between it and SL.

True, the SL (sliding magnet) needs to be far away from RO (rotating magnet) to have zero influence.
The reason I cannot obtain measurements on my scale when disengaging the SL torque arm is because the arm is 12 inches long and was originally designed to measure foot pounds.
To get a scale reading on test 4 (disengage arm) I would have to reduce the SL arm length by half if not more to get the scale to register something.
I didn't feel it was necessary to modify the device at this point since I'm not seeing any advantages using the rectangular magnets over the ring magnets I originally tested and designed the device to measure.
I'm going to move on to testing other magnet configurations that produce more torque so it's best to keep thing as they are.
Hope that makes sense?

also see the attached files.
your device needs further modifications and dialing in.

As for your great diagrams, thanks for taking the time to do them ... I agree to all points and have been aware of each scenario.
On the first one, I was aware of the potential problem, so right from the start I took great care in keeping the scale angle at 90 degrees of the SL and RO arms throughout their torque travel. So there should be no errors in the scale data provided to date.

The other issue which I also knew of, is true, the crankshaft will influence the linear scale readings of the SL input torque arm. However, since measurements are done in each directions (engage & disengage) there cannot be an advantage or gain from using a crankshaft mechanism since if it did we would of solved the energy problems some time back.
With this in mind I trust the method and measurement used to be a true reflection of input force. However, I do agree by using a crankshaft on the input arm I'm not getting a linear input torque measurement, so the charts I made are affected by this fact.

Please feel free or anyone else explain if I fail to understand something or have error in my logic.

Kind regards

Great and thanks for asking these important questions which I could of explained in my video but I try to keep them as short as possible so I stick to important details.
I do understand these questions need to be asked to ensure we're on the right track and I appreciate answering them.

I hope more experimenters like Vidar, TK and so on are going to find things we haven't considered yet.
Could it be there's nothing else?

Luc,

Have you supplied the data for both directions of travel for both arms?  if so then I have missed the Torque arm reset values.

Since your testbed is only to measure the forces and distances then the second direction of motion on the Torque arm should be considered.  Whether or not you reset that arm or something else moves it the counter force over the distance is still going to manifest.
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: gotoluc on December 08, 2016, 07:45:06 AM
Hi webby1

as you know I have always supplied input reset data which is deducted from the output gain.
Even with this input reset subtracted for the output gain I'm still left with a 30% torque gain.

I have come up with a rotating design which will have 2 to 4 alternating torque sequences which has no need to reset the output.
Each of these alternating output torque sequences will transfer the 30% gains in rotating flywheels.
The question now is, will this 30% output torque gain alternately transferred in each flywheel which will represents at most 40% of one revolution (per flywheel) be enough to keep each flywheel turning the 60% of the remaining revolution and may include a small counter force to go through as well?

I think it may but we never know till we try.
Most of the parts for the build will be in next week.

Stay tuned and please feel free to point out any other problem you find in the meanwhile.

Regards

Luc

Are the 28 samples of the Torque arm 14 in one direction of rotation and 14 in the other?  with the 60g being the start\end point?

My quick little throw together still has that reset cost of the Torque arm,, when I double things up so I can run it in full rotation that cost is still there in the way of reducing the output torque. (no data collected just checking my memory)

What I see from the  data you have provided is only 3 columns,, engage, cost,,, disengage, cost,, torque arm out, output,, but am missing the 4th which is torque arm reset, cost.
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on December 08, 2016, 03:48:26 PM
Let me put it this way.

The full cycle is,

engage,     CCW, cost 0.2778951388 J
torque arm, CCW, gain 0.7795415278 J
disengage,  CW,  cost 0.2622390746 J
torque arm, CW   cost ?????

After disengage the torque arm needs to be put back into the position for engage to happen for the start of the next cycle.

The 28 sample test 3 output torque chart has 140 degrees of travel (not 14 inches) on the output torque arm with an average of 165 foot/grams of torque throughout that 140 degrees of travel.

What I see from the  data you have provided is only 3 columns,, engage, cost,,, disengage, cost,, torque arm out, output,, but am missing the 4th which is torque arm reset, cost.

I would have to make serious modifications to my test device to calculate the losses of the output torque arm to rotate the balance of the 220 degrees needed to bring the arm back to the reset point. So I decided to use that time to just build a device which can continue to rotate in case it does work.
My new design uses many parts I already have on hand so the cost of extra parts is just 25, so not a big loss if it doesn't work. Plus, once I have the device put together (even if it doesn't work) I'll be able to measure how much the balance of the rotation (reset) costs.

After disengage the torque arm needs to be put back into the position for engage to happen for the start of the next cycle. Yes, I got it but I don't think this is a practical way of resetting it. I want the output torque to continue in the same direction and return to the beginning. Makes more sense to me to keep things in motion then to send it back in the opposite direction. We'll see how it works out. Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: webby1 on December 08, 2016, 05:11:26 PM Conservation of momentum is important and should be considered. However,, with the testbed you had you could of simply pulled the Torque arm backwards (CW) and measured the force over the same distance while the other arm was in the disengaged position. This would then of provided the energy needed for the complete cycle regardless of how it is applied. 28 samples,, 14 samples :) Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on December 08, 2016, 06:18:28 PM Conservation of momentum is important and should be considered.

However, doing that causes other problems like the scale is going to have issues measuring the portion when the arm is close to hitting the aluminum slab and possibly other issues I can't immediately visualize. Like I said, I rather not make drastic changes on this device for now. You'll have to wait a week or so to see what I can come up with on the next full rotation test device.

Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: webby1 on December 09, 2016, 01:21:50 AM I was actually referencing my numbers,, 8 decimal places is a little silly :) IIRC I found that when disengaging happens,, that there is an advantage to stepping that while the RO (?) is still turning. As you are pulling the magnet away you can set it up so that you expend a constant force to do so,, and while you are expending more energy the RO will continue to speed up due to it still seeing a torque. You have that window around the 80-90-80 where the removal cost is comparatively low so it is easy to set the rate of change up. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: lumen on December 09, 2016, 04:45:54 AM I wonder if the cam effect on the slide is masking the real data. Wouldn't it be better to collect the data from the exact movement of the magnets over the entire rotation and slide distance and then determine where the best gain occures? The cam introduces a non linear input measurement against a linear output measurement. This is problemmatic when measuring the already non linear magnetic field.

The cam introduces a non linear input measurement against a linear output measurement. This is problemmatic when measuring the already non linear magnetic field. This was (in the most part) a device already built and used for something else. I modified it to do what it does. The crankshaft was already there, which I decided to use to engage and disengage the sliding magnet and added a torque arm to it. It's good enough as a preliminary test bed. In my next test device build (which the output will able to rotate) I won't be using a crankshaft for this action.

I'm concerned that Theta has been left out in the analysis so far in this thread - and hope that Theta will be included in the future. "END QUOTE Two questions 1. The conversion of torque to work is needed, in order to state the actions in terms of Joules of work. Correct ? 2. But that conversion to joules, will not change the RATIOS of the measurements to each other, will it ? thanks for being on board floor Nice work Luc. I haven't really been following along closely but I just wanted to throw this in: Let me underscore this point, and put it another way: Luc's data seem to be showing that t2 (output torque) is greater than t1 (input torque). But torque isn't energy or work, even though they have the same units. Torque is a vector whereas energy is a scalar, and torque is the rotational analog of force. The energy (or work) in Joules associated with a torque is given by E = (torque x angular displacement), where torque is in Newton-meters and angular displacement is in radians. So a torque of 1 N-m applied for a full rotation requires an energy (work) of 2pi Joules. So to answer Floor's question, yes, it is possible to have t2 > t1 but still have E2 <= E1 if the torque t2 acts over a smaller angle than t1. I can't tell from Luc's data whether you are taking this into account. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on December 30, 2016, 07:23:45 AM Thanks TK, I'm glad you're looking into this.

Actually, torque is a kind of "power", except that instead of acting across a time period (like Watts acting over seconds to give Joules of energy) it acts across angular displacement (torque acting over radians to give Joules of energy). No, you don't need to show continuous rotation to demonstrate power or even overunity. Although it would do, if it did! If you can show an _energy_ surplus during part of a cycle, even if it gets eaten up by mechanical losses in another part of the cycle, you still may be able to show OU without continuous rotation.

Also if this is possible, could you present this in the topic below ? http://overunity.com/16954/magnets-motion-and-measurement/ best wishes floor Title: Re: TD replications Post by: dieter on February 08, 2017, 07:07:45 AM [/font]Humm :-\ ... if work in is greater then work out, how do you achieve OU?Ah, Gap-Power of Art Porter. He is a very good and generous man. I went to his home about 2 month ago. We looked at his devices and he let me bring back his first device (aluminum table) which I temporarily modified to test floor's research. He has also given us an extra coil and magnet set of his latest device used in the video you mentioned.It's true that you can use magnet in conjunction with electromagnets to more then double a electromagnet magnetic field strength. However, what is not apparent to many experimenters at first (including me till a few years back) is the counter electromagnetic field (CEMF) also doubles in strength which bring you right back to normal electromagnet behavior and is always under unity.I know for sure as I've tried to beat this for years without any success.The effect of CEMF was very apparent when I built a super build of my "Mostly Magnet Motor"The bottom line is, as soon as you turn on a coil (no matter how short the on time or multiple pulses used) if there's a moving magnetic field no matter how powerful your magnets are, you're dead at that point.Here is a shortcut to understanding the device and the end results: http://overunity.com/8429/mostly-permanent-magnet-motor-with-minimal-input-power/msg420188/#msg420188 (http://overunity.com/8429/mostly-permanent-magnet-motor-with-minimal-input-power/msg420188/#msg420188)RegardsLuc [/font] I would not agree with that in all detail. Art did tests too, and over a longer period he would have noticed, whether the lead battery recgarge was only recovering or not. IMHO the special thing is the frontal approaching. In Attraction the fluxes of to magnets link, but in repulsion they siege oneanother, allowing the lorentz force of the secondary field (lenz drag) to act its natural orientation, that is 90deg sideways, which is why there is repulsion drag in rotational byepassing. We talked about that. Hang a wire horizontally in the air, with a dc current. Approch magnet. Wire will go up, 90 deg from approaching direction. Accummulate all wires... Well, however, that was my impression. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on February 09, 2017, 04:57:56 AM Here is an update and results on my idea of using metal shielding pulled in and out between the magnet rings to allow the remaining 220 degrees to rotate through to reset the device. The test also includes floor's idea of using diametrically magnetized magnets (instead of metal) as shielding to do the same.

Since the device is very dynamic the only way I could measure it was to do each step at a time. So to answer your question quickly, the 11mm stroke is measured once the rotating magnet is centered with it. Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: dieter on February 10, 2017, 06:24:55 PM Then I would suggest to measure the push with each measurement step of the rotation, that was 5mm, maybe try to do finer steps due to the peaks.

And once the 11mm magnet has reached it's 5.5mm center the rotating magnet requires 0 grams to move through. A very complex measurement setup would be needed to probably find it all comes to the same. The way I did it (in steps) measures all maximums. By holding down the 11mm magnet while the rotating magnet moves in, the rotating magnet needs the most pull force to pull it in the first 55mm and the opposite happens once I release the 11mm magnet and hold it down now the rotating needs maximum force to be pulled out of the remaining 55mm of travel.

Test device parts needed: A DC electric motor which has a flywheel attached to its shaft and use of photo switch to turn the motor on and off. First test: We attach a scale to the outer circumference of the flywheel and adjust the current to the motor so it can pull 34 grams. Then we adjust the photo switch to power the motor 110 mm distance of the flywheel outer circumference. We note of the RPM in this condition. Second test: We attach a scale to the outer circumference of the flywheel and adjust the current to the motor so it can pull 538 grams. Then we adjust the photo switch to power the motor 11 mm distance of the flywheel outer circumference. We note of the RPM in this condition. If your belief is correct, the RPM should be greater on the first test compered to the second test, correct?

I have not studied physics (only mathematics and law) therefore I would have to read up about flywheels in my physics text books. This would take hours which I am not prepared to put in today. The quick answer: I do not see the connection between a flywheel and your machine. A flywheel is continuous movement. Your machine has two movements, a continuous turning movement (like a flywheel, if you want to see that probably false analogy) and an intermittent reciprocal movement. Very important and constantly overlooked fact: your sledge also pauses during its movement (cycle, reciprocal movement). And during the pauses it does not do work. Like a LED that is driven intermittently, whose average light output is less than a constantly driven LED (with the same Voltage and Amperage, this is what dimming is all about), your sledge outputs less energy than thought if the pauses are taken into consideration. (And exactly there I see no continuous fly wheel). So, please forgive me that I do not want to study fly wheels at the moment. Your fly wheel example might have the answer "yes", but there is no Konnex to your machine Just think for a moment, it is important how long work is done. Only when knowing how long a certain work is done one knows its power output (energy). I have said more than often: POWER is WORK over TIME. If there is no time, there is no power (when the sledge pauses). A power company sells Watt-Hours and not Watt. You have to get the difference between Watt and Watt-Hours (between Work and Power or Energy). Which in your case is the difference between Gram or Gram-Hours. Or, if we would do the conversion from Gram to Joule, it is the difference between Joule and Joule-Seconds (or Joule-Hours if you want). This is not my opinion, this is a fact. Everybody would complain if his work would not be paid by the hour. It matters very much how many hours you do your work. The average power output of your work is less (per hour) if you drink coffee for 15 minutes every hour (a pause of 15 minutes every hour). Your power output will be 25% less. All employers know that simple fact. All power companies know that it is important how long you switch on your loads.

See that's the diffrence between employed and selfemployed. Work does not mean to pretend to do something until 17h. But to deliver a quantitively precise service, like in "job done", regardless of the hour. I can't believe you studied Maths and then fail to add 1+1. Maybe disagreement is an easy way to get into a discussion, but that would be a psychological issue. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: dieter on February 10, 2017, 09:49:30 PM Luc, not neccessarily. Neos have such a low volume that it appears as if their long range is weaker than with eg. ceramics (which isn't the case), only when you replace them by Neos of same volume, but then friction losses may rise to an amount that such a light construction can hardly withstand. It looks good atm, and 200g excess should be much more than enough, if the cranking losses are kept low.

Title: Re: TD replications Post by: webby1 on February 10, 2017, 10:19:11 PM Since you are dealing with a stop-move-stop-move condition it will be difficult to easily use a crankshaft only setup. I would suggest making the linear magnet distance covered less than the rotary magnet length, this so the wheel can keep moving as the linear magnet slides. Say if you turned the linear magnet 90 degrees and "release" the linear magnet when the edge of the wheel magnet just hits the far edge of the linear magnet,, this will also setup your maximum RPM,, that is when the wheel is spinning as such that the same time is used for the wheel to rotate its distance of coverage as the linear magnet uses to slide. I would also suggest using a system where the linear magnet slide is applied against a spring (I was thinking of something like a pull start return spring arrangement) that drives a flywheel that drives the wheel and the use of a few one way clutches so the full motion from the slide will be applied into the spring and that force released into the flywheel\wheel as it needs it. String and pulleys will allow you to take the linear slide and redirect it in any direction you like. Using one such drive system per slide direction. Since you are comparing a full cycle to a full cycle power is considered after the fact,, as in how many cycles per second the system is running at and is used to find the speed that you must achieve to run a given external load. Just my 2cents worth. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: conradelektro on February 10, 2017, 10:25:12 PM Conrad, I take it you agree with me?

I learned what WORK is, but you do not want to learn what POWER (or energy) is. In order to calculate POWER you need TIME. And you seem to be too thick to get that. But as I said, I do not want to loose any more time with you. Please stop writing about me, you deliberately tell lies about what I write. You deliberately deny that I corrected an error.

Greetings, Conrad Title: Re: TD replications Post by: webby1 on February 10, 2017, 10:27:31 PM Using the string. If you take a shaft and a string,, a long string,, wrap the string around the shaft a dozen times in one direction, then pin the string to that shaft and then continue wrapping the string around the shaft but in the OPPOSITE direction,, now when you attach the ends of the string to one of the slide pieces you have a push-me-pull-you arrangement,, using one way bearings or clutches will turn the shaft oscillation into a continuous single direction rotation.

Maybe you could even use a simple hook that grabs a spoke, using leverage to sync with the 11mm vs wheel circumference / 12. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: deslomeslager on February 11, 2017, 11:13:22 AM Having seen and understanding that a sideways push generates a better force (for the lack of no OU words), some thoughts come to mind. 1 - We can construct this in a rotating fashion. Luc already uses a wheel on top, now all we need is a wheel on the bottom, and the wheels need to have some timing mechanism. The top wheel will let the bottom wheel rotate, and if all goes well, with a surplus. If the bottom wheel is an e-bike wheel, it can generate power (any other power generating tool will work as well) 2 - for other people on this forum who have build a pulse motor and have it laying around: You need to mount your magnets rotated 90 degrees, similar to how Luc uses the magnets. Is there someone willing to build this? Should not be to hard to build, as long as your timing is right. Maybe it works that way as well.

Yesterday I found an antique sewing machine on a yard, "Singer 1", no electrics, beautiful btw., with a foot pedal driving a flywheel, which would be perfect for something like this. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on February 15, 2017, 05:05:17 PM Even though the design appears to have a gain it's a very small one because of the magnet size. I think we should consider this first design as a concept verification. I also think OU devices need to be large at first so not to overlook things. With this said I'm thinking the output needs to travel more distance and have much more pull or push force. To do this it's going to need magnets that have more surface area. I've ordered 12 of these for the next experiment: http://www.ebay.com/itm/322408983857 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/322408983857) So the version 2 test device will use these 2" x 6" magnets. They be turned by a low rpm DC motor in order to calculate input Watts. There should be a formula to convert the back and forth output into Watts. If you want to help please find the formula to do so. Regards Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: dieter on February 15, 2017, 06:28:42 PM I think, first you should add springs to the 11mm push/pull to compensate / nullify the losses you will otherwise get due to accelleration of mass. Springs of the right strength, so it becomes a pendulum, synched with the wheels rotation. Mass in motion doesn't require energy, only to brake, accellerate or redirect it will require energy, in outer space without gravity and air, of course. So, this goes over my head and personally I would rather try to build that cranking mechanism than to find and understand a formula for the conversion of this output into eg. joules. And I wouldn't trust the formula anyway, esp. when found on wikipedia :) About size I found out, you may also just downscale friction, instead of upscaling the model. Bicycle wheels have pretty good friction and stability features already, in relation to their size. For tiny models with eg. 1 foot diam. rotor I prefer Needle bearings, actually hardened steel nails, so the contact area is never nore than like 1/50mm2. Anyhow, with stronger magnets you may very well see an even more obvious net gain. Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on February 15, 2017, 08:36:00 PM Humm, pendulum... I was also thinking of a pendulum instead of the wheel since only 2 magnets are needed to make the output go back and forth. It should also be an easier mechanism to redirect the output back to a pendulum.

Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Cairun on February 21, 2017, 03:19:24 PM I'm contemplating on a series (cascade effect) for the next build. If there is a gain, it should be obvious then Hi Luc, When you say "a series build" do you mean you will link multiply systems together? Just curious. I am looking forward to your next build. I am developing a mechanism to capture the "stop and go" motion of your setup and use it in a "two bicycle wheel" setup, since continuous rotation ultimately is going to be the most efficient. A linear sliding setup should work as well. One way to capture the motion of the magnets is to create cam followers to follow two separate tracks to create the "stop and go" motion. Keep up the great work! Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on February 21, 2017, 05:34:38 PM Hi Alex, Thanks for your interest. When you say "a series build" do you mean you will link multiply systems together? Just curious. Yes, they are linked to multiply in a way. The idea is, if there's a gain, then the first unit can be calibrated to use its gain to operate the polarity flip slider of the second unit. That way all the output of the second unit is free to use or to re-use to operate a 3rd unit and so on. Each unit or stage should be able to have 50% more magnet surface area causing an exponential torque amplification as the stages are added. This is the idea but at this point only a theory since it hasn't been built or tested.

Upon playing more with the ceramic magnets, I realized that continuous rotation may not be achievable with your setup. The output magnet seems to only do positive work in the 11 mm stroke(maybe a tiny bit more than 11mm), and as it moves further than 11mm it enters into attraction mode which essentially creates a sticky spot. Unless I am setting up my magnets in the wrong way. Can you confirm this or let me know what I may be doing wrong? I've completed my conceptual design on the "stop and go" mechanism, but I still need to figure out some of the mathematical relationships. I will post pictures or a video of the concept when I have it in a presentable form.

Regards, Alex Hi Alex, It is difficult to see what's different without seeing what you've built. Can you make a video so I can see what could be different. Two things my device has is, the magnets on the wheel are alternating north south and the 11mm magnet has stops (wood blocks) to limit the 11mm magnet stroke so it does not get out of range. Maybe watch the video again to see these limiter blocks. Looking forward to seeing what you've built. Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Cairun on February 22, 2017, 09:42:46 PM Luc, Thanks for the quick reply. I did notice the alternating magnet pole arrangement (which is where the self re-set comes from), and the limiter blocks (which is where the 11 mm is coming from). I am trying to emulate your setup exactly. I guess my question is if you remove the limiter blocks, how much further will the slider magnet travel beyond the 11mm distance. Apparently, don't remove the limiter blocks just to answer my question. I will set something up tonight and make a video to clarify my question. Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on February 22, 2017, 10:19:58 PM The 11mm magnet can travel a little more then where I limited them but if its center goes past the side edge of the rotating magnet it won't flip back on its own when the next rotating magnet comes in. That's the main reason for the limiters. Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Floor on February 23, 2017, 01:33:59 AM Opening a latch while it is is under a large force can use a lot of energy.

Quote Going with the full stop.... then... next action, seems always to give the better results. Conserving all of the energy of momentum would be nice but doesn't have to happen... at all. I agree, the "full stop....then...next action" is necessary. And conservation of all momentum is not necessary to achieve OU, although it would be nice if that were possible. Quote Our / "the free energy researcher's", obsession with continuous rotation has been (perhaps)... one of the primary reasons that these interactions have been over looked in the past / for so long. Perhaps, that's true. I am always too eager to reach the end goal and overlook certain subtle but important details.

That force while it may otherwise be "wasted" would also be difficult to practically utilize, (staying near to the average force is good) I agree, and the extreme drop off ultimately turns into a sticky spot. Finding the limits of the stroke is essential in maximizing the output. Although, a 60% excess of output to input is pretty good too. Quote I think maybe, a longer INPUT stroke might be the first thing to try to expand. i.e yet longer magnets in what is already their longest dimension or two magnets end to end ............... Next.... maybe a wider "output magnet" width ? .....and cascading I agree, increasing the both magnets' length will increase the output force. And increasing the output magnet's width will increase the length of the output stroke. Although, I think input work required may increase as well. However I don't know if the increase in input vs output will proportional. Additionally, The sticky spot is irrelevant now that I've had some time to think about it. Stepping through the operational sequence I see now that the input magnet will move away before the output magnet moves beyond the 11mm of stroke. A huge brain fart on my part... I will continue to develop my "stop and go" mechanism.

Please reply Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Cairun on February 25, 2017, 06:16:47 AM Hi all, This is the conceptual design of the "stop and go" mechanism designed for Luc's version of Floor's Twist Drive idea specifically for use with a continuous rotation setup. As you can see the output gear stops and stays in position for a brief moment, but the planetary gear rotates continuously(it is attached to the input gear which means the input gear is in continuous rotation). I still need to try and figure out the mathematical relationship. The 2 attached images show the front view and back view of the mechanism as well as labeling for the individual components. The following link shows the mechanism in motion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lqlbY4v38s&feature=youtu.be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lqlbY4v38s&feature=youtu.be) Imagine 2 bicycle wheels with the input magnets mounted on the rim of one and the output magnets mounted on the rim of the other bicycle wheel. Each wheel connected to the output gear of 2 separate "stop and go" mechanisms. Set the wheels at 90 deg from each other. Couple the input gears of both mechanisms(have to time it exactly right) via gears, belts, U-joint linkages etc. Mount a flywheel to the input gear to preserve any excess momentum. And the result should be a self runner. This mechanism should capture all momentum and not waste any. Even the braking of the wheels(due to stop and move motion) should transfer into usable momentum. As for the linear reciprocating setup, I will draw something up to show the "track follower" mechanism that I've mentioned, later on. Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Floor on February 25, 2017, 08:22:38 PM @GotoLuc/ Cairun Fantastic work ! @ All readers Some observations / features..... To assist one in understanding the magnet interplay. The force to slide the input magnet is almost completely neutralized by the balance between attraction / repulsion ..... when the input magnet's line of travel is along the center of the face of the output magnet. That center is the distance to the edges of the output magnet's face, as measured at a right angle to the center line of the input magnets travel. That center line from pole to pole of the input magnet is square to the center line from pole to poles of the output magnet...in two planes. and also...The faces of the two magnets are square to one another in all planes. ... Note...The greater the distance from those edges of the face of the output magnet to its center.....the easier it is to come to a zero sliding input force (by balance). e.g The broader the face of the input magnet...the easier it is to arrive at that force balance. (A less perfect travel path / alignment is needed by the input magnet) When input motion is along the center of the output magnet face .... this changes both the input and the output work... as compared to when input is made near to the edge of the output magnet. I assume this also changes the final or over all, work in to work out ratio ?. If the input magnet's travel is near to the edge of the face of the output magnet.... the input force and work, is increased. But also the output disproportionately increases ? .............................................. In Luc's current design... During both, the input stroke and the reset stroke, there is a mutual interaction between the output magnet (A) and the input / reset magnets as a combined field (B). Th The nature of that relation ship is affected by which position of the output magnet is in...e.g. cocked or fired. These relationships affect the input and reset strokes. More on that.... later / maybe. .......................................... Note... Use of the phrase "pumping action" in regard to the input magnet, would be some what misleading... as there is a motion then hold position action to its motion.

If your put another set of output magnets with south and north poles reversed on the left side of the input magnet then you would have 2 output strokes and get 2x the output. Furthermore, once the input magnet is pulled out, the output magnets would self reset since they are in attraction to each other. Now to get 4x the output, you can put another input magnet on top of the the current input magnet with south and north poles reversed. This serves to double the output stroke force. This is very exciting. I wish I can test it now but I can't since I will be working away from home for the next month.

Luc's last video measured a specific arrangement.. which may be / probably is actually some what different than the (2) above illustrations. Those illustrations are to give the (in general) of that configuration. 2. a device utilizing large force over a short distance.... can have excessive energy wasted... due to small amounts of slack / play / slop at the junctions of its mechanical / moving parts. 3. Translating a large force / short stroke into a long stroke / lower force before any one way clutch (which will have play before it engages) will be more efficient than the other way around. 4. There is no energy lost in the trading of greater force at less distance for less force but greater distance... e.g. using a large diameter output pulley. (above illustrations) 5. The diameter of the round gear beneath the rack gear (above illustrations) should cause it to rotate by 90 degrees during the magnet stroke. 5. The eccentric pulley (illustrated above) anticipates only a 90 degree rotation. 6. that output pulley might as well be eccentric ..... even if out put force is MOSTLY constant over the distance traveled.... but not if output force is very constant over the entire distance traveled . best wishes floor Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 01, 2017, 02:52:04 PM Luc, You have said in one of your posts, that you don’t have sufficient knowledge of mechanics to correctly calculate the energy efficiency of your devices. You have also asked for help in this regard. Here is the assistance you were looking for; see the attached files. I have integrated the work, both the input and the output, and calculated the efficiency of the device. If your measurement data is correct, then the coefficient of performance is COP=161.3%. This would be quite impressive, and I could design a generator on this idea, but I have doubts about the validity of your results. For example when you are taking the first measurement, then the slider magnet is completely under the wheel, is that correct? Then as you pull the rotor magnet over the slider there is a repulsive force between them. So far so good. Then when the slider is released and shifted to the farthest position from the rotor, then you continue measuring the force required to pull the rotor away from the bottom position. What does not make sense to me is that you are now measuring an attractive force between the magnets, even though I would expect a repulsive force to persist. A repulsive force existed between the magnets until the rotor covered the slider, and the repulsive force made the slider move away. This same repulsive force supposed to still exist (even though smaller) while you are pulling the rotor away from above the slider. Which means that during the second half of the measurement the magnets supposed to perform work, and you supposed to push the rotor (not pull) during the measurement. Can you please cast some light on the exact procedure of measurement, polarities of magnets and preferably dimensions as well? Thanks. Great workmanship! Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Floor on March 01, 2017, 03:17:07 PM @Nonlinear Gotoluc has several videos up on various of these magnet interactions. Watching the set of these short videos should give you a comfortable understanding of the interactions. It can take some time to gain familiarity with the configurations. There are 7 videos here by "seethisvid" that give some explanations of the magnet's polar alignments, motions and resulting force vectors. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x59r978 http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5an8hd_rtangsld2_tech http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5d7hdv_lucs-1_tech http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5d7ip9_lucs-2_tech Also there are some drawings and a pdf file, upon the previous pages of this topic floor Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Floor on March 01, 2017, 04:31:25 PM @Nonlinear I don't think Luc has stated the dimensions of the magnets he is using, but I have assumed... that they are the same as those I have been using ? see this link below http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/msg489791/#msg489791 Thanks for the conversions to newtons / joules best wishes floor Title: Re: TD replications Post by: shylo on March 01, 2017, 11:18:13 PM do the work at the bench and you will see there is more than what were told to look at. You can build a rotor that has a cam that moves the force of the magnet attached to move in and out, But it will find balance, inject an offset to that balance , at the proper time. You won't get free power, but you can get it down to the point where it is virtually free. Just what I've seen so far. artv Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on March 02, 2017, 05:33:33 PM Luc, You have said in one of your posts, that you don’t have sufficient knowledge of mechanics to correctly calculate the energy efficiency of your devices. You have also asked for help in this regard. Here is the assistance you were looking for; see the attached files. I have integrated the work, both the input and the output, and calculated the efficiency of the device. If your measurement data is correct, then the coefficient of performance is COP=161.3%. This would be quite impressive, and I could design a generator on this idea, but I have doubts about the validity of your results. For example when you are taking the first measurement, then the slider magnet is completely under the wheel, is that correct? Then as you pull the rotor magnet over the slider there is a repulsive force between them. So far so good. Then when the slider is released and shifted to the farthest position from the rotor, then you continue measuring the force required to pull the rotor away from the bottom position. What does not make sense to me is that you are now measuring an attractive force between the magnets, even though I would expect a repulsive force to persist. A repulsive force existed between the magnets until the rotor covered the slider, and the repulsive force made the slider move away. This same repulsive force supposed to still exist (even though smaller) while you are pulling the rotor away from above the slider. Which means that during the second half of the measurement the magnets supposed to perform work, and you supposed to push the rotor (not pull) during the measurement. Can you please cast some light on the exact procedure of measurement, polarities of magnets and preferably dimensions as well? Thanks. Great workmanship! Thanks Nonlinear for taking the time to verify my calculation and present your data. I made a video for you in hopes of making the process clearer to understand .

I am setting up to do measurements / replication on you last demo. This will be of an output stroke only. If... I also do the input stroke measurements, they will have to be of a straight on (parallel) stroke, and one magnet only (input).... to one magnet only (output) @all readers These experiments are being done on the fly. (not perfect) My measurement process will be only an approximation of Luc's process (not identical). please find the attached PNG file regards Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 03, 2017, 08:33:18 PM Thanks Luc for the video, now your results make more sense. There are several mistakes in your approach and measurements, which may be very well the cause for the detection of COP>1. The biggest mistake is to judge the efficiency of a device based on average forces. That is completely unscientific, and it can very easily mislead you. The total work must be measured and calculated, like in my spreadsheet. The second mistake is ignoring the role of measurement errors. A measurement is never 100% accurate, there is always some error in it. The experimenter must be aware of the expected maximum error margin of his measurements, and disclose it together with the measurement results. Without this, the data can not be taken seriously. For example the best resolution of your scale is 5g which is extremely low and produces a very large error if you are measuring forces in the range of 0 to 100g. When you are measuring 100g then the uncertainty of the measured result is 10g, which is 10%. The correct way of showing your measurement result is: 100g +-5g, or with other words, the real force could be anything from 100-5=95g to 100+5=105g, the error margin is 105-95=10g, which is 10% of the measured value of 100g. Therefore if you find a COP=1.1 with such large error margin of measurement, then your measurements are pretty much useless to prove anything. If you are measuring even less than 100g, like in some of your measurement series measuring 5, 10, 20g etc. then your error margin is so huge that the data is of no value to prove anything. If your scale has a low resolution, then build a device that requires the measurement of about 100 times larger forces than the 5g resolution. If this is not practical, then use a scale that has got sufficient resolution and accuracy to produce around 1% (or less) measurement error. The third mistake is not to measure the complete cycle of movement. For example webby1 was trying to convince you few pages back that you have to measure the 4th part of the cycle as well, in one of your earlier devices. He finally succeeded in this effort in post: http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg496971/#msg496971 and you provided the data in: http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg496974/#msg496974 After you have measured this 4th part of the cycle and taken it into account, then your (still incorrect) averaging calculations showed only 10% of excess work, which can very easily attributed to the other mistakes already mentioned. In this case of rotary device this is not as critical as in the previous devices, but I would still recommend you to measure the complete cycle. Meaning, two rotary magnets pass in sequence above the slider. Please also measure the output force as well at least 10 times, like after each 1mm movement. I was trying to get a manual feel of the forces in your device using two neodymium magnets of 4x2x1cm, which I don’t recommend to anyone. These magnets are just too powerful, and if one doesn’t have very strong fingers, they can also harm you! But, I have got no ceramic magnets of rectangular shape right now, so can not do the safe version. Anyway, keep up the good work, and if the COP is still higher than say 1.2 even after fixing these mistakes, then it should be possible to build at least a perpetuum mobile using this magnet arrangement. If the COP would be really 1.6 like in your measurements, then the machine should be able to generate useful output power as well, besides just running itself.

Regards Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 04, 2017, 09:31:03 PM If you have the time, I would like to talk over / better understand your suggested approach. Maybe in the topic http://overunity.com/16954/magnets-motion-and-measurement/ I don't think it is a good idea to separate the discussion of measurement techniques from the experimental thread (here) where the action happens. There is a good chance that those who experiment and supposed to read and implement the suggestions will not find them. Like in this post: http://overunity.com/16954/magnets-motion-and-measurement/msg499599/#msg499599 telecom has explained how to measure and correctly calculate the input and output work already on the 9th February. His suggestion was ignored and the averaging continued as if nothing happened. If you ignore good advice then why would anyone be willing to help? Anyway, if you don't' understand telecom's explanation, then I can explain it again. What is it that you don't understand? Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on March 04, 2017, 10:54:03 PM I would tend to agree with you Nonlinear. Better keep the measurement techniques of a replication in this topic. Now, concerning telecom's advice "below" "Re Gotoluc measurements: work = force x distance I would like Gotoluc to measure force for each segment of his input and output dials, and multiply this force by the length of the segment. Then add them together for the input and output. This will give us input and output work. The more segments he has, the more precise would be the calculations. In fact, he already has everything in place, just needs to do the above operations." I do remember reading it and re-read but can't seem to understand or find what I have not provided. So I guess you'll have to explain what I have not done. BTW, your calculations came to the same as I had calculated, so again I fail to see what I forgot.

Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 05, 2017, 08:52:07 PM Quote BTW, your calculations came to the same as I had calculated, so again I fail to see what I forgot. Here is a parable: Joe and Fred have calculated the surface area of a gate that they want to paint, which is a square. They know how much paint is needed per square meter. So if they calculate the surface area of the gate then they will know how much paint they will have to buy, and how much that will cost. One side of the square is 2m long. Joe calculates the surface area as S=(2[m])^2=2^2[m^2]=4[m^2]. Fred prefers to calculate the same as S=2+2=4. As you can see in this specific case the numerical result of both calculations are the same (4) and correct, but Fred is calculating it the wrong way. If the length of one side is not 2m but let’s say 3m, then Joe will get a correct result as S=(3[m])^2=9[m^2], but Fred’s result of S=3+3=6 will be wrong. The fact that two different methods of calculation give the same result for a specific case (or even for several specific cases) does not mean that both methods of calculation are equally valid for all possible cases. Quote I do remember reading it and re-read but can't seem to understand or find what I have not provided. You have provided useful measurement data, and doing a great work on testing the energy balance of different magnet arrangements. I did not say that you did not do anything useful, or that you have not provided something essential. Your data already merits serious investigation (if true) and that is the reason I have chimed in and trying to help. Even if it finally turns out that there is no real COP>1 in these permanent magnet arrangements, the measurements are still of value if they are scientifically correct and sufficiently accurate. In such a case future experimenters can already know that it might not be the best idea to look for overunity in this area. But both your method of setting the measurement points and the method of calculating the COP are not the most scientific and accurate, and therefore not very convincing for the scientifically minded. You can fix this with no extra effort, and obtain/present neat measurement results for the same cost and work spent. The correct approach will also be valid for any possible measurement point distribution. Quote So I guess you'll have to explain what I have not done. You have done it (calculated the COP), just not the right way, which was also suggested by telecom, but now I see that it has been nicely described even earlier on January 04 by Floor: http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/msg498005/#msg498005 If you read the explanations in the pdf that is attached below this post, you will see that in general case it is not wise to use uniform segment sizes. In the regions where the curvature of the force function that you are measuring is large, one supposed to use small displacement sizes. Where the curve is nearly straight line (nearly constant increase or decrease of force per same displacement) one can use larger displacement increments. If the segment sizes are not uniform, then your method of simply averaging the forces, and ignoring the lengths of individual displacements will give a wrong final results. It is also wise to conform with the established scientific method of calculating the COP as the ratio of the output and input work (not average forces). Quote Have I given a correct interpretation of the basics of the process for calculating the work in these magnet interactions here ........ http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/msg498005/#msg498005 ? Yes, except for the minor math error in this formula: Pf+if/2=avf which would be correct in this form Fa=(Fp+Fi)/2. First one must add the two forces together, and then divide the result by 2. Your version first divides Fi by 2 and then adds Fp to it, which gives a wrong result. Quote If so, and with your permission ..... then I will re post those three pages / files here ? This is your thread, you don’t need my permission. It indeed makes sense to post everything relevant into this thread as well. Although I have also attached a similar pdf document to this message to clarify the calculation methods, yours is also useful, because it explains the subject in more layman terms and it may help those with less technical knowledge. If we want to implement the best method of COP calculation, then I (of someone else) will have to slightly modify the earlier posted spreadsheet as well (but the change is trivially simple). Quote A COP of 161.2838 .... does this mean basically the same thing as 61.2838 % more out than in ? Yes, it does. Whatever you get above 100% is free excess energy.

Do you plan to measure the input work and output work by measuring force over distance like you've done for your previous build? I think that is still beneficial. I thought about ways to measure the input work and one way to do it is by attaching a string on the outer diameter of the wheel and wrapping around the wheel then attach the string to your pull scale. This allows your to measure in linear force over distance. Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 08, 2017, 01:37:56 PM Luc, This is again nice workmanship, but the concept is wrong because it can not prove anything. You have yourself recognized that there is at least 40% loss in the 2 motors alone, and then we still didn’t count the losses in the gear mechanism which will be a lot again, and the friction losses elsewhere in the machine. This is just a waste of effort really. With all this work and expense you could have made a purely mechanical feedback loop from the output to the input with much less loss. All you need to do is attach a large enough flywheel to the shaft that will store energy, and then drive it with the slider. This can be done by using 2 ratchet mechanisms like the ones in a bicycle rare wheel hub. This way you can utilize and rectify the strokes in both directions. The flywheel can drive the rotor. Since the expected torque from the slider will be greater than the one of the rotor, the slider torque will need to be fitted to the rotor torque to be in the right proportion.

I don't agree that this won't prove anything. We will see. As for wasted expense, the only cost was20. for the gear head motor from a surplus salvage store.
The rest I had on hand, even all the 3/4 inch plywood used to build the device was salvaged and free.
You see, I live a very frugal life style, on a $100 a week, so I know not to waste. All you need to do is attach a large enough flywheel to the shaft that will store energy, and then drive it with the slider. This can be done by using 2 ratchet mechanisms like the ones in a bicycle rare wheel hub. This way you can utilize and rectify the strokes in both directions. The flywheel can drive the rotor. Since the expected torque from the slider will be greater than the one of the rotor, the slider torque will need to be fitted to the rotor torque to be in the right proportion. Don't underestimate what I know needs to be done to convert the mechanical output back to the input. Some of what you suggest would be needed but it's far more complex then what you suggest!... since the rotor could not just freewheel. Rotor and slider would have to be mechanically linked to keep the timing. I'm sure Alex also knows this. As well, he and I know it would benefit to slow down the rotor once the magnets are in ideal position to the slider magnets to deliver maximum force stroke. Regards Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Floor on March 08, 2017, 11:32:28 PM @ all readers This latest addition to the magnets motion and measurements project, is a detailed explanation of how to calculate the work done by a force that is changing with distance.

As well, he and I know it would benefit to slow down the rotor once the magnets are in ideal position to the slider magnets to deliver maximum force stroke. Luc, Yes, you are exactly right about this. In order to achieve maximum output the input magnet has to come to a complete stop and wait for the output magnet to finish its stroke before the input magnet can move again. And vise versa, the output magnet has to stop and wait for the input magnet to finish its stroke before it can move to achieve minimal input work. A cam and follower(or track and follower)setup should allow us to mechanically link the input and output to create a self runner. I will attempt to model something up to show what I am referring to. Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 09, 2017, 03:40:05 PM In order to achieve maximum output the input magnet has to come to a complete stop and wait for the output magnet to finish its stroke before the input magnet can move again. And vise versa, the output magnet has to stop and wait for the input magnet to finish its stroke before it can move to achieve minimal input work. In a generator designed to optimally utilize all the available excess energy at arbitrary speeds of rotation yes. One has to synchronize them and allow the slider to finish the complete stroke before the rotor is moved away. But if your aim is only to produce a closed loop as proof of concept and proof of excess energy, then one can accomplish the task in a simpler way. If there is really 60% excess energy, then the following device should be at least self running. The proposed operation is this (referring to the earlier version where force measurements were done): 1) The stroke length of the slider was already about 10 times shorter than the travel length of the rotor magnet. If you allow the slider to deliver its work even faster say 10 times faster than the speed of the rotor magnet, then the freely rotating rotor will travel only about 1/100th distance of the stroke during the movement of the slider. This is negligible, and it nicely approximates a perfectly synchronized rotor-slider. It is also possible that a slower movement of the slider would be also satisfactory. Like for example just let both slider and rotor move at the same speed. In that case the rotor would travel 1/10th of the rotor’s stroke distance while the slider completes its stroke. One can calculate how much efficiency gets lost this way and find an optimum, a compromise between practicality and ideal condition. 2) The synchronous operation can be guaranteed by using a toque brake on the shaft, and keeping the RPM of the rotor at sufficiently low level, so that the slider should be able to complete the stroke before the rotor travels a significant distance away from the synchronous position. The torque developed on the brake can be measured, just like the RPM, from which one can calculate the output power. 3) A large enough flywheel will absorb and smooth out any jerky movement, and contribute to the slow synchronous operation. 4) A timing latch could be utilized (similar to the one used in old pendulum clocks) to time and synchronize the release of the slider magnets at the right moments, only slightly before the rotor completely covers the slider magnet. 5) The linear bidirectional movement of the slider can be rectified and converted to unidirectional rotation using two bicycle hubs (or similar ratchet mechanism), one on each side. One on the left side drives the flywheel while moving forward, and the other on the right side drives it while moving backwards. 6) this way a continuous rotatory movement can be sustained, with an easy and handy way of measuring the output power. No need for accelerating and decelerating the output wheel, or stroke. But it would make sense to start designing such a machine only after precise reliable measurements prove the existence of at least 20-30% of excess energy. Anything below that would make it challenging to overcome the losses, and it would have no practical significance anyway.

Regards, Alex Hi Alex, User name TinselKoala made a suggestion of using a Scotch Yoke (1st pic) to convert the linear output to rotary. The problem with it is there's no rest time. However, I thought there could be a way to modify the Scotch Yoke to create a pause time and found a variation that does exactly that (2nd pic) Link to animation: http://www.mekanizmalar.com/uk012.html (http://www.mekanizmalar.com/uk012.html) The same site also has an Indexing mechanism (3rd pic). Link to animation: http://www.mekanizmalar.com/four-slot-two-pin-geneva-mechanism.html (http://www.mekanizmalar.com/four-slot-two-pin-geneva-mechanism.html) This mechanism may do what we need to turn the rotor in four segments of rotation, stop, lock and pause. As it is my magnet rotor only has 2 sets of magnets but I could add a second set without too much work and expense to advantage of the 4 position of this indexing mechanism. I like both of these mechanism instead of gears since I could cut them out of plywood with a router. Food for thought Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: citfta on March 09, 2017, 04:49:14 PM Hi Luc, Great videos as always from you. I do have a suggestion. The Geneva drive is an ingenious device but needs to be built with very close tolerances to work properly without it wanting to hang up. We had some CNC machines where I worked that had them as part of the automatic tool change mechanism. I am afraid it might not work well made from plywood. I think the modified scotch yoke would be much easier to get working properly. Respectfully, Carroll Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on March 09, 2017, 04:56:39 PM Thanks Carroll for your input. If the suggestion was to be used I was thinking of a very large scale like 20+ inches in order to allow for toleration differences. Do you still think it's not possible? Regards Luc Title: Re: TD replications Post by: citfta on March 09, 2017, 05:59:31 PM Making it that large will certainly help with the precision problem. Most of the ones on the machines I worked on were about 15 to 20 inches in diameter as I recall. Of course they were used to move some pretty heavy tool change equipment so that made them more susceptible to problems. With your skill at building I think you can probably make a 20 inch one work. I would like to see one made from plywood. That would be impressive. They are pretty interesting to watch them work. Once they change to the next position they hold that position very accurately until told to change again.

Food for thought Luc Luc, I've modeled a track follower setup which captures the stop and go motion. This is a linear reciprocating design with both input and output magnets moving linearly. This video shows a the basic idea of a track follower setup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqyiLaUw5g&feature=youtu.be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqyiLaUw5g&feature=youtu.be) This setup does not take advantage of the self reset(because I just wanted to model quickly and show the basic idea), however, a self reset design can be achieved. I will have to think a little more about how to mechanically loop your latest build/setup. Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: gotoluc on March 09, 2017, 08:05:40 PM That mechanism looks great Alex ;) This kind of cam follower design I can make with a router.

So that's the best to start with. Thanks for taking the time to help! Luc Luc, Thank you, I am glad I can help! The geometry of the track/cam may need some tweaking to enable a smoother motion, but this is a minor problem. The one thing that bothers me is that I am not sure of the efficiency of a cam and follower, more specifically the one that I've shown in the video. If anyone is familiar with the efficiency of a cam and follower, please chime in. If you print the cam/track out and glue the print onto a piece of plywood and then you can cut the track with a router. With your workmanship, I am sure you can make it ;) . But, if accuracy becomes too much of a problem, I can make the cam/track with my CNC mill after I get back from my travels. However, my CNC mill is quite small and can only make small parts. But I can always break larger components into smaller parts and assemble into a larger component later on. Let me know how you would like to proceed. I can design a cam/track with info provided by you and send you the drawing so you can attempt to make it, or I can make it when I get back.

Your proposed design is a good way to to mechanically loop Luc's design. However, I think a cam and follower setup(like it is shown in this video[size=78%]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqyiLaUw5g (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsqyiLaUw5g)[/size]) is simpler and better captures the motion of the operational sequence. Perhaps, I place too much emphasis on maximizing output and minimizing input, but every little bit helps ;) . Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Drak on March 10, 2017, 04:57:37 AM Hi gotoluc, I think it would probably be best if you did not lock the output to the input. I would make sure that your output is able to ADD to the input instead of having to wait on the input before it can move. As long as they are in resonance with each other (the timing is correct) it should work. You would need a mechanical capacitor to store the energy but still have the rotor turn at the same speed (the hard part). You wouldn't be able to have it going faster then the slider can handle or it will go out of resonance like in your video when you have to adjust the speed to get the slider working at full swings. If you mechanically lock the output to the input it will be like trying observe an electron without disturbing it. They both need to move freely on their own. Just my thoughts. Great builds I love your work! drak Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Nonlinear on March 10, 2017, 02:16:34 PM Thank you for you detailed input.

Perhaps, I place too much emphasis on maximizing output and minimizing input, but every little bit helps ;) . Alex, Your cam follower design is good; it will allow the mechanism to rotate at higher speeds as well, while keeping the synchronous movement. Regarding efficiency though, I am not convinced that the cam follower would waste less energy than what I have proposed, because the roller bearings are wasting energy along the whole path of the tracks, which can get excessive at high speeds of rotation. But if there would be really 60% excess energy, then both designs should be able to at least self-run. The problem is not with the feedback mechanism, but rather with the claim of excess energy. Despite my original reluctance, I have forced myself to read through the other related threads of Floor, and now my suspicions of deliberate deception have been confirmed. There is definitely no excess energy in such purely permanent magnet arrangements, just as theory predicts. Lumen’s improved measurements have proven this already (in the now closed thread) here: http://overunity.com/14311/work-from-2-magnets-19-output-2/msg498010/#msg498010 and Stefan has closed the thread as well, because the subject is closed (no overunity). Despite the correct disproof, the agenda to mislead and deceive is still in full swing with a show of nice looking contraptions and fake (or grossly erroneous) measurement results. Another example of disproof is webby1’s attempt to convince Luc that he has to measure the 4th part of the cycle as well, in one of his earlier devices. He finally succeeded in this effort in post: http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg496971/#msg496971 and Luc has reluctantly provided the data in: http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg496974/#msg496974 When this 4th part of the cycle was taken into account, then Luc’s averaging calculations showed only 10% of excess work, which can be very easily attributed to the other bad measurement practices mentioned earlier. Without free energy being created, the whole show of nice devices and designs are nothing more than the shiny paint on the car from which the engine is missing (useless). As an illustration of this absurdity there is a famous example called overbalanced wheel. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_motion The gravitational field is conservative just like a spring. You can not get more continuous work from gravity than what you have to invest, and this is completely independent of the path of movement. One can not get more work out from a spring than what one has to invest while pressing it together. It doesn’t matter whether the spring is linear or nonlinear, it is still conservative and it is very easy to prove this. The magnetic field can be imagined as a net made of millions of tiny springs that react only with magnetic materials. It does not matter how complex net you form from such springs, they still remain conservative. The magnetic field is conservative, and Lumen has already proven this, but some people prefer to ignore this fact. I know that it is possible to create overunity generators, for example cold fusion is one of them. Accurate measurements performed by qualified physicists prove that. But purely permanent magnet arrangements will definitely not produce overunity. Therefore I will not post on this subject for a while, because now my interest is only in observing the psychology of deception. I will just sit back and observe how far a hoax can go before some readers get fed up with the nonsense and start kicking some butts. When the whole thing blows over, then I will come back to say: “I told you so… didn’t I” ;D Title: Re: TD replications Post by: citfta on March 10, 2017, 02:47:34 PM Nonlinear, You are way out of line. I don't know Floor that well but I have known Luc for years. To accuse him of deliberately misleading is very wrong. Luc is a dedicated researcher looking for the truth. He has tried to follow any suggestions from anyone to make his measurements more accurate. He has not claimed OU anywhere that I am aware of. He only presents the results of his tests. When he sees results that look promising he will pursue those results until he is convinced they do not lead to an OU device. That is research, not deception. You owe him an apology for suggesting he is deliberately misleading others. As far as OU goes, you are certainly entitled to your opinion. I worked in electronics for over 50 years and have seen several times things that left me scratching my head. So I do believe OU MAY be possible. I am not convinced it IS possible nor am I convinced it is NOT possible. So I continue with my own research and follow the research of others like Luc that are willing to share their efforts. Respectfully, Carroll Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Cairun on March 10, 2017, 02:49:40 PM Nonlinear, Luc's current design is different than the original TD setup.

Regards, Alex Title: Re: TD replications Post by: webby1 on March 10, 2017, 03:34:41 PM I do not see any deliberate deception, rather what I see is a lack of experience. This very lack of experience can allow for tests to be run that others, with more experience, may consider useless or absurd. These tests may have not been tried before because to those with more experience they seem to be "useless". In time I think that Luc will think about having the output motor spin in only one direction and allow that motor to freewheel and add a large flywheel to the motor shaft,, after all, that rate of acceleration coming from the slider mechanism is fairly impressive and spring stops could conserve more of that mass in motion energy if it is not stored within the flywheel,, and things will go from there :) Will it work?? you do not know until you do.

Quote from: gotoluc There you have it, you're confused and creating confusion. It's obviously you haven't read all the topics and posts to come to the conclusions in your last post. What I'm working on at present is different then what Floor originally proposed and I first tested. Well, you fellas don’t get it, do you? I’m fully aware that Luc’s magnet arrangement is slightly different than the original of Floor. It absolutely does not matter along which path you move or twist the two magnets in relation to one another, they still behave like a system of passive and conservative springs. If the force is greater in one direction, then the path to travel will be shorter, and vice versa. If you accurately measure and correctly integrate the total work, you will see that there is no overunity. Not in Floor’s design, not in Luc’s design, not in Joe’s, Fred’s, and Julie’s designs, not in anybodies designs of purely passive permanent magnet systems. The difference between Floor’s and Luc’s versions are analogous to the difference between this design of Bhaskara’s overbalanced wheel: http://www.trevorbaylisbrands.com/tbbnew/technology/perpetual/unbalanced.asp and this modified version called Chain Drive Gravity Machine: http://pesn.com/2012/01/05/9602001_Free_Energy_Chain_Drive_Gravity_Machine_Open_Source_Project_Launched/ The crackpot line of thinking goes like this: Quote I have built the Bhaskara wheel, and damn… it doesn’t work. But wait! I am smarter than Bhaskara was, I will design a chain drive instead, which is completely different and therefore it has nothing to do with Bhaskara’s failed idea. Then someone who knows physics comes along, and tells the new inventor that his gadget, which is trying to use the same principle of overbalanced weights (as Bahaskara did) to extract free energy from the conservative field of gravity will not work. This can not possibly extract free energy form the conservative field of gravity, just like Bhaskara’s wheel didn’t work, because they both are basically and principally the same. But our zealous inventor accuses the commenter that he is totally confused and spreads confusion, because he can not even see that the chain drive is totally different from the Bahskara’s drive. Therefore, he must be a crackpot, lacking any integrity, so the audience should despise the commenter and applaud the inventor. LOL. ;D Quote Your error may cause others to question your integrity and reasons for being here. Oh, really? I am so ashamed that my stupidity and utter ignorance did not allow me to see the difference between your design and Floor’s design. LOL … LOL … LOL ;D In fact this implicit call of yours that others should question my integrity is one sign of mean agenda and deliberate deception, but there are many more such signs. I have a long list of such signs and symptoms collected during my reading the threads of Floor and this one, which all together indicate deliberate deception. I don’t claim such a thing lightly, but I do that only because all the telltale signs are present, which are characteristic of an organized hoax. I don’t want to post this list of symptoms (yet) because it would only help the culprits to refine their methods of deception. If the readers can read between the lines, know some physics, and observe the actions and reactions of the participants, then they will be able to see what I mean.

Title: Re: TD replications Post by: Cairun on March 11, 2017, 01:32:20 PM Nonlinear, Well, you fellas don’t get it, do you? I’m fully aware that Luc’s magnet arrangement is slightly different than the original of Floor. It absolutely does not matter along which path you move or twist the two magnets in relation to one another, they still behave like a system of passive and conservative springs. If the force is greater in one direction, then the path to travel will be shorter, and vice versa. If you accurately measure and correctly integrate the total work, you will see that there is no overunity. Not in Floor’s design, not in Luc’s design, not in Joe’s, Fred’s, and Julie’s designs, not in anybodies designs of purely passive permanent magnet systems. It is because we can see the profound difference between and potential of Floor's and Luc's designs that we continue with our support. Minor differences in a design can mean the difference between a working product and a failed product. Maybe you are unable to see the difference or you simply refuse to see the difference. I believe your intentions at an earlier time were good, so please stop with the defamation of Floor and Luc and provide constructive criticism instead. Perhaps, you think that your earlier input was not well received, but Floor and Luc can only do so much at any given time. They are offering their knowledge to the public without asking for anything in return, deliberate deception will not amount to any gain for them. Quote If the readers can read between the lines, know some physics, and observe the actions and reactions of the participants, then they will be able to see what I mean. But, if one is a staunch believer in crackpottery, and despite my warnings still believes there is 60% overunity in this system, then he should build the machine himself, and wake up to the reality the hard way. It is a good suggestion that anyone able should experiment themselves to see if an idea will work or not. I will certainly conduct independent measurements to verify Luc's measurement results.

After 10 hours of detailed scale samples and calculations to my surprise the input force for one cycle is exactly the same as the output force :( It was hard the believe since the first model sowed around 60% gain. So this morning I decided to re-measure the first device with the most care to details. Now the first device is showing a 10% gain which could be caused by accumulative errors from the 5 gram resolution scale. What I found could of cause the 60% gain error is by using a different input rotor magnet then the one used for the 11mm output. I check the rotor magnets and found they have different magnetization force. So most likely that's what happened plus the scale resolution problem. Sorry but looks like this configuration also has no gain. Not a big loss (other then time) as the v.2 costs were the magnets and sliders$90. and I can still use them on other experiments.

When I first read "Twist Drive" I thought it would utilize sheering force, rather than attraction / repulsion.

Maybe it does?

There is a force, turning a parallel 2nd magnet. When stopped at 90deg, it can be removed fro the 1st magnet without force, eg. by gravity. Then again by gravity it can brought in parallel position. The torque of the sheering is significantly higher than the gravity force alone.

Maybe that is also a TD.

I have made a little Toy to demonstrate it, maybe I'll post a picture later.

Notes..

The integration of the work done in the inputs via the rotating bicycle rim experiment....

1. position magnet by rotation above the sliding magnet
2. remove magnet by rotation from near the sliding magnet

may together (attractions and repulsions) come to a net work of less than either
1. or 2.  alone (just above)......

except that their peak forces were not matched / canceling one the other out.

Other wise your complete set might have shown some OU ?

Great to hear!... please make a video demo once you have found something so I can evaluate it as well

From 60 % plus to 10% plus is a major oversight.  Can you give us some details
of that over sight ?

This link to the below quote explained the oversight: http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg501737/#msg501737 (http://overunity.com/16987/td-replications/msg501737/#msg501737)
this morning I decided to re-measure the first device with the most care to details.
Now the first device is showing a 10% gain which could be caused by accumulative errors from the 5 gram resolution scale.
What I found could of cause the 60% gain error is by using a different input rotor magnet then the one used for the 11mm output.
I check the rotor magnets and found they have different magnetization force. So most likely that's what happened plus the scale resolution problem.

So to revise what may of caused the 60% gain error.

1. I must of use a different rotor magnets to measure the input force then the output force when I first measured the v.1 device.
Seems this alone can cause a 30% difference. I was surprised of how much each rotor magnet vary in force.

2. The scale I use are 20kg max luggage scale. It has a 5 gram resolution.
The rotor input force of the first device range from 1g to 85g max. However, the scale only starts to display at 15g and above.
So I figure it's unsuitable for accuracy when measuring below 100 grams.
I would estimate the math averaging on the input of the first device could be off by 10 to 25% based on this resolution issue alone.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The below are the measurements done on the v.2 device

The input rotor force measured between 110g to 2.4kg, so very good data was obtained as far as the scales resolution ability.
Half of the input rotor distance (to make one output stroke) is 16 1/8 inches of circumference.
Samples were taken at every 1/8 inch distance, so 129 input distance samples were recorded in total!... giving a very good input average calculated to be 1.1kg over the 16 1/8 inch half rotor circumference.

The output force was adjusted to slide 5 inches of distance. The gram pull force measurements varied between 2.3Kg to 14.5Kg.
40 samples were taken at every 1/8 inch making an average of 6.46Kg over the 5 inch output stroke.

I've just realized I made an error (a few days back) on my final math!!!... I had the calculations of the rotor input engaging and disengaging averages calculated separately and added them together 1.24Kg + 0.957Kg = 2.2Kg but the error is, the 2.2Kg should then be divided by 2 = 1.1Kg to get the correct input rotor average over the 16.125" for half of the rotor circumference as I correctly did above.

So if we take the 16.125" rotor input travel distance and divide it by the 5" output slider distance = 3.23 times more distance the input rotor needs to travels at 1.1Kg average compared to the 5"output distance at 6.46Kg average.
So if we multiply the input average 1.1Kg x 3.23 times =  3.55Kg of comparable input force to distance needed compared to the output.
Now if we subtract this 3.55Kg of comparable input force to the 6.46Kg output force = 2.91Kg left over which is a 82% Gain over the Input.

Your energy, enthusiasm and many hours of work in the shop are much appreciated.

Post by: gotoluc on March 19, 2017, 06:06:55 PM
I've attached a xls file of my v.2 Magnet Torque Amplifier measurement data which was prepared by user webby1

Measurement Steps:

First Step:
Output slider is in rest position (already delivered output force) and is locked in position by adding a wood block.
In this position the input rotor magnet is in most attraction to the output slider magnet and this is the beginning point of the scale pull force measurements in grams.

Second Step:
Input Magnet Rotor is pulled from the rotors outer edge using a flexible steel strapping tape.
Steps 1 to 129 is a total of 16.125 linear inches of the magnet rotor outer edge travel (180 degrees) with scale pull force samples taken every 0.124 inches. 129 samples in total.
The first 57 Samples is the pull force needed to Disengage the rotor magnets from the attraction force of the output slider magnets.
Then samples 58 to 74 (in red) is the rotor magnet being temporarily attracted to the output slider magnets and why they are a negative (additive force) to the rotor.
Finally, sample 75 to 129 is the remaining pull force needed to position the rotor magnets in ideal resting position for the output slider magnets deliver maximum force.

Third Step:
Input Rotor is locked at this position which is 16.125 inch, 180 degrees from beginning measurement position.
The Output slider is released and the output slider magnets pull force is measured over its 5 linear inches (taken every 0.125 inch) of the magnet sliders output travel force.

Please note the input rotor and output slider force has been measured 180 degrees of input rotor which delivers one output stroke.
I have not bothered (at this time) to measure the other 180 degrees since in theory it should be a mirror image of the prior.

Hi webby and Luc

Just received my ferrites magnets this morning.

To Luc

I am planning a setup and i rewatched your  video on the V2 device for details. It seems that you say that the rotor diameter is 22 inches so the outer rotor distance is 22 x 3.1416 = about 69 inches, so half distance (180 degrees)  is 69 / 2 = about 34.5 inches. So i don't see where the 16.125 inches (in your last calculation for 180 degrees ) are coming from ? Have you installed a second rotor for the measurement or i am missing something ?

To Webby

Thank's for input
Sorry if you have already done it, but may i ask you to explain how you get the Joules datas from the colum " gram pull"

1 joule is 1N of force for 1m of distance,, the step that Luc is using is 0.125 inch, I convert that into meters and the grams into N,, so 0.003175m per increment for distance and 0.00980665N per gram.

I should of included the distance information within the spreadsheet better,, there is column A that has step inch and then step m and I should of noted that this was the step distance per measurement.

If desired I can add that verbiage.

Oh no Laurent, I now see a terrible error!... the 16.125 inches was for each section of disengage then engage. So the 16.125 inches would have to be multiply by 2 = 32.25 inches of outer rotor traveled for 180 degrees, making the rotor 20.53 inches in diameter and the device under unity from the calculated math.

So the input rotor traveled 6.45 times the distance of the output. So input average is 1.1Kg x 6.45 = 7.1Kg input to 6.25Kg of output so under unity by about 12%

I'm so sorry for your trouble and expenses.

Luc,

It seems to me, based on your description of measurement steps, that you've accounted for all the input work required for one output stroke.
Your measurement range only needs to be in between when the rotor magnet first feels a magnetic force and when it last feels a magnetic force from the slider magnet.
The graphs from the Excel spreadsheet shows that the pull forces diminishes to almost zero on both ends which indicates that you've accounted for the full range.
Any distances beyond that range should be free wheel.

Alex

Yes Alex, I've accounted for all the input work required to produce one output stroke.

Your measurement range only needs to be in between when the rotor magnet first feels a magnetic force and when it last feels a magnetic force from the slider magnet.
Alex

Yes, I understand what you are saying but I don't see that helping as it would not account for the area of rotation where the rotor is being assisted by attraction to the slider, (negative red data) making the result even worse.

The graphs from the Excel spreadsheet shows that the pull forces diminishes to almost zero on both ends which indicates that you've accounted for the full range.
Any distances beyond that range should be free wheel.
Alex

I think there is a miss understanding. A full rotation is 360 degrees and I measured 180 degrees.
There are 2 output strokes for 1 rotor rotation.
I measured the first 180 degrees of the rotor which created 1 output. The balance of the other 180 degrees is for the second output stroke and as I wrote before should be a mirror image of the first measured 180 degree. So how can that be free wheeling?... the same work would have to be put into the rotor to complete the 2nd output.

Kind regards

Luc
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on March 22, 2017, 03:55:41 PM
You measured for 90 degrees, not 180 but to get to the second output you need to keep turning the rotor another 90 degrees,, if this additional 16.125 inches of pull is for less than an average of 780 grams there is a gain,, more than 780 grams it has a loss.

To complete the measurements you would need to measure from start of engage to start of engage, you have the first half done.

You did say you were planning on a full 360 degrees of pull measurements,, keep the output at your 40 steps.
Title: Re: TD replications
Post by: webby1 on March 22, 2017, 04:08:08 PM
My prediction on the rest of the turn is that the rotor will see another small area of negative force, it will then ramp up in positive force needed and ramp back down to low force needed and then back up as engage starts.

Dear Webby1

I am re-posting the perfect 5 step illustration Woopy has added at the bottom of the chart you provided.
Do you not see it illustrate a 180 degrees of rotor travel?

The 16.125 inches of rotor distance is 90 degrees worth, so as I previously wrote 180 degrees rotor distance is twice that, being 32.25 inches and 64.5 inches for the complete rotor circumference.

Hi Luc

Yep, don't worry at all, we are here to test everything possible under the "trial and error" rule for the doer. Furthermore ferrite magnets are not expensive, and i will anyway use them for other stuff.
Ah those magnets will keep the mystery  for some more time.
Anyway thank's for sharing your work and for your determination in searching new way for the future.
Keep going on, as i will, once will be perhaps  the.......

Hi webby

Good night at all

Bonjour Laurent,

You may want to test Floor's recent suggestion of magnet shielding: http://overunity.com/17097/magnet-force-shield/msg502025/#msg502025 (http://overunity.com/17097/magnet-force-shield/msg502025/#msg502025)

Luc,

How can the 16.125 inches of pull data that you collected be 180 degrees?

Since it can not be 180 degrees then the illustrations that were added can not be correct.  They should then have the rotor magnet at 45 degrees to the slide magnet, then rotate 45 degrees (8.125 inches of pull) so they are now in the output position and the slide released, then the slide is held and the rotor is turned another 45 degrees (8 inches of pull) thus covering the 90 degrees of pull distance you measured.

Now if the 16.125 inches of pull took the rotor magnets from 90 degrees to the slide magnets and placed them in the output position and then the slide was released and then you pulled another 16.125 inches for the next 90 degrees of rotor rotation and if that had the same force measurements as the first 16.125 inches of pull,, THEN your assumption is correct

This is where I am confused.

That's where the error was. It never was 16.25 inches!!!... it was twice that!, being 32.5 inches.
Do you understand now?

I have 129 steps times 0.125 = 16.125

I understand that the rotor has a 20.53 inch diameter.

At this point I am assuming that your 129 measurements are for the engage only.

Could it be that with the magnets at a lower potential at the start of disengage it takes less work to move the rotor to where you started measuring the engage process?

I think it will,, but how much?  enough to show a gain? not sure.

Yes, I see your point. I'm going to go over it all to see how that part could of happened but maybe it's as simple as the 129 samples were taken every .25 inches and I thought it was .125 inches?

I'll go over it to try to figure it out but for sure there's no error with 129 samples for 180 degrees.

Well at .25 that has your input at 8.92J and the output still at .125 staying at 7.59J

Title: Re: TD replications

I looked over my original papers and I can confirm the 129 samples were taken every .25 inches. It was the output sample that were taken every .125 inches.

Hi Luc

Yes i have tried the Floor's config.

So first, yes the shielding magnet seems to slide easily through the first stuck of magnet, but at the expense of a strong up or down force (in fact this is the slider's stroke force of your V2 version), so this up or down force (depending of the vertical orientation  of the stack of magnets) should be strongly directed with very good build and efficient sliding gear to maintain the magnet on the path and avoid too much friction losses. And so to be able to precisely measure the engage and disengage energy. By hand due to all the mixing forces it is of course impossible to correctly estimate .

The second thing i notice, is that the shielding effect seems to be some how effective when the second (moving "piston"  ) magnet is very near to the shielding magnet, but at some distance, some repelling force is always present.
So there is not a  complete cancellation of the repelling force , anyway with my magnets crude manual  test and ,another time, by hand it is not possible to really estimate, due to all the mixing forces.
So it seems that we  always need some mechanical force to approach the "piston" magnet towards the shielding magnets. Adding that this "piston " magnet exhibit also strong torque and up and down forces, that have to be correctly directed by a efficient  mechanical device to maintain the path.

I tried to double the thickness of the shielding magnet, but all the above stay more or less the same.

So to be able to test properly , we need to invest time and energy for a very well and sturdy build, with very fine scale and a lot of time to detect if there is any OU possibility.

But by doing those crude manual test, i am sorry to say that i did not get the "waouuuhhh" feeling, that could motivate me to go further on this delicate experiment.

So to me, all those systems are very effective and interesting magnetic coupling device , but so far no OU. But i can be and i hope to be wrong of course.

Perhaps Floor will elaborate more and find the right path to the Graal.

Hope this helps

Laurent

Thank you Laurent for sharing your preliminary shielding test.

One thing for sure is, if there's a magnet configuration that can go thru a complete cycle an have a gain it's still unknown.

I'll be keeping an eye on floor's research.

Kind regards

Hi Luc and all

just for fun and without any pretention

it is what i name a "waouuuhhh" moment.

But is it good or not must be tested much bigger, because i don't feel any forces at so small scale.
