Well, this is where you've been hanging your hat, Jerry.  Good to see you still "around" even if that last post is a year old.  One of the few guys I know to have actually managed to obtain a "non-classical" event from his ciruit.

Hope all is well.

Pese.

From that last post I can see your english is not so good.  I now see why I didn't understand your previous post to me.

The EVGray circuit

In theory, the EVGray circuit is quite simple (I will point out the practical difficulties in a moment.)  Jerry Volland has posted a number of circuits.  You will note he is using a defibrillator inductor and mentions a "current limiting action" caused by this inductor.

An inductor is simply a coil.  It can have an open air core or an iron core, but either way it is nothing more than a coil of conductor wire.  Also called an toroidal coil inductor, it is used in classical EM circuits to filter out certain frequencies.  But for the EVGray circuit, its purpose is more fundamental and intimate than generally understood.  That purpose was to filter (or "choke") out current.

When E.V. Gray built his circuit, he patented it calling it a circuit to run an inductive load.  E.V. Gray was either purposivly obtuse or didn't understand the theory behind what he had built and how it worked.  Perhaps it was a little of both.  In any event, the EVGray circuit was used to run Gray's inductive motor ("EVGray motor") which reportedly generated 80 horsepower.  One does not need to be a P.Eng to look at that motor and realize it was unnecessarily over-designed.  But one thing that it did do was filter out current.  According to the patent, it was this current, this "back emf" that was diverted and sent to the charging battery during the operation of the motor.  Whether one believes this or not is irrelevant.  The many, many coils in the circuit \ motor filtered out current.

The "secret" which isn't a secret. 

One must pulse high voltage across a spark gap filtering out the current.  On each pulse, the high voltage "arc" will cause a discharge of radiant energy perpendicular to the direction of electrical flow.  The radiant energy is picked up by a copper grid which by virtue of the nature of copper, converts it to standard EM electricity which can then be used for powering a load.

That's it.

Today there are many people who understand the theory.  Jerry is one of them, though he hasn't to my knowledge built a full EVGray circuit.  He is testing the creation of the non-classical event he described above as a "slow, fizzeling squirt".  He has elsewhere described it in such a manner to make me believe he has generated radiant energy - albeit for a short period of time.

Tom Beardon is another one.  Peter Lindemann is another one.  John Bedini is another one.  Tesla was certainly one.  There are many, many others some living, some dead.

A prime source for learning how to create that non-classical "radiant energy" is John Bedini and his SSG circuit.  John has successfully shown the existance of "radiant energy spike" on a scope (his "h" wave.)  His circuit is based on generating Electric Potential while filtering out the current.  Like EVGray, it is done on a pulsed basis.  His measurement of the effect of the radiant energy (other than the strong spike shown on his scope) is by the cycling of charging and discharging of lead acid batteries.  He has a yahoo group for this purpose.

So again, the key in the EVGray circuit is to generate a high voltage potential while filtering or choking out the current which potential is then arced across a gap.

So what's are engineering challenges?  There are a number of then, some of which EVGray never completely solved.  What follows are just a few to give you a taste of the nature of the challenges facing the researcher and the bench technician.

1.  The pulses must be of a high frequency, high voltage and low amperage.

1a) High Frequency

Regarding the frequency, Tesla mentions many millions per second.  We are in the gigahertz range here.  Obtaining this level of frequency at a high voltage has a whole set of engineering issues that must be overcome, not the least of which is the natural tendancy of the inductor coils used to filter out amperage to be relatively "slow."  Mechanical oscillators or voltage choppers won't do the job.  Solidstate is probably the way to go, though there are some vacuum tubes that will achieve it.  One cannot start with a relatively low level of frequency and then "scale up."  Unless a certain frequency is used,  the radiant energy event doesn't occur.  I have a paper on a Sanyo 2SK3748 MOSFET transister array that switched 3k volts at frequencies and pulse widths in the ns range.

1b) High Voltage

While generating high voltage is merely a matter of transforming an existing voltage, high voltage carries with it its own set of challenges and issues.  The first is to protect oneself from a potential lethal shock.  I use a high voltage mat, high voltage gloves and high voltage rubber boots.  Moreover I use a welder's mask when generating the arc to protect my eyes.  The second is to protect one's equipment.  Scopes don't come cheap.  I have a number of varying high voltage probes I use.  The third is to protect one's shop.  The importance of fuses and breakers cannot be overemphased.  Purchasing a fire extinguisher is an absolute necessity.

1c)  Low amperage.

Ensuring a negligible level of amperage (current) is necessary to ensure the appearance of the radiant energy event. The inductor coil is probably the way to go and it was certainly the way Gray acheived this.  Because of the high frequency of the pulses and the relative slowness of the inductor coils to charge and discharge, it is likely necessary to have more than one inductor coil and some sort of switching means to alternate between the coils.  As soon as one speaks of "switching" when high voltages are used, there are potential arcing problems in the switches if mechanical switches (relays) are used.  If solid state, the high voltage pulses generate heat which has its own filtering effect and eventual failure of the solid state switch is always a concern.

2.  Transformers can only transform a/c electricity.

The EVGray technology is based on running the whole system from 12 or 24 volt batteries.  Therefore the voltage must be "stepped up".  This requires transformers.  Since the battery produces dc, some sort of system must be used to "chop" the dc (turn it on, off, on, off etc.) so that the transformer can transform the electrical voltage upwards.  Once the voltage is at the desired level, the ac electricity must be rectified back to dc prior to producing the arc.  As should be readily apparent, the higher the voltage, the greater the effort to protect the bridge rectifier diodes.  This requires "balancing" the individual diodes with resisters and capacitors.  Each of these components have their own capacitances, inductances, heat generation and failure potential.

After obtaining his reported 3,000 volts, EVGray collected the electricity in capacitors prior to discharge across the gap.  He charged up two high capacitance capacitors (to voltages that were presumably much higher than 3,000 volts) and then only partially discharged each capacitor at each pulse into the circuit.  This obviously required a switching system between the transformer and capacitors (to switch from one capacitor to the other) and then beween each capacitors and the spark \ arc gap to switch between the discharged capacitor and the charged one.  As mentioned above, switching has its own set of problems in high voltage, high frequency applications.

3.  The arc must be distinct and sharp - a "cracking" arc according to Tesla.

An electric arc is relatively easy to generate.  Any welder can do it and does it by hand and "feel".  Of course the arc welder permits high current and it is the current that generates the arc.  In our case, we are trying to generate an arc with negligible current at a high voltage.  Otherwise we would be simply building an arc welder.  So an arc without current is the goal.  This can be done even though it is contrary to standard EM theory, but it requires a strong push of voltage that is stopped after the arc and before the amperage flow (using Dirac particles?)  Whatever the actual physics involved, it happens.  Look at Jerry's posts above.

So we generate a high voltage, negligible current arc which is stopped, started, stopped, started i.e. "pulsed" as distinct, sharp and cracking discharges.  This isn't so easy.  This is an effect which is a factor of the distance between the electrodes, the temperature of the air, the voltage (amplitude on the scope), and duration (pulse width on the scope) of the electricity.  In order to "tune" the circuit, each of these components must be tunable.  Remember to use an appropriate probe if you are going to measure the pulse on the scope.

3a) Starting the arc.

To generate the high frequency mentioned by Tesla requires timing controls which could be anything from an array of HV transistors (MOSFETs) to a 555 on the low voltage side of the circuit or combination thereof.  To achieve various pulse frequencies, Gray reportedly used mercury based thiristor tubes.  Presumably these were almost as difficult to obtain in the 1970s as they are today.  Because they are mercury based, they are actually illegal where I live.  Gray also tried transisters in "darlington arrays" but reportedly burned them out over and over again.  Today we have access to high voltage and robust transisters he didn't have access to, but they are expensive.

3b) Stopping the arc.

The high frequency pulsing electrical circuit not only requires a "starting" of the arc, but a "stopping" of the arc.  The arc must be completely dissipated prior to the next cycle.

To obtain the necessary "stoppage," Tesla reportedly used magnets and hot air.  It is not clear just how he did this.  The pictures of the arc gap and magnets show up in some of his patents.  This technology, or something similar, must be developed further.  Even though transisters can be used, and are typically very quick at their "stoppage", the rest of the circuit will not give up its voltage, amperage, or magnetism due to any circuit's natural inductance and capacitance.

4.  Residual Issues.

There are a number of residual issues the EVGray researcher must be aware of.  I can only mention a few.

4a) EM interference.

It should be noted the generation of a high voltage, high frequency arc will generate a lot of EM "noise" that will be picked up by anyone using sensitive electronic equipment close by.  So if you don't want to interfere with your neighbor's radio, T.V., ham radio, the local communications of a military base, police station or airport, you must build a "faraday cage".  I work in my garage in a large city.  This is obviously a major concern of mine.  My "faraday cage" is the body of two microwave ovens which will be situated over the spark gap.

4b) Electrodes.

EVGray reportedly used silver tipped electrodes.  This certainly would facilitate the arc across the gap.  It would also cut down on the inevitable wear on the electrodes.  To "silver tip" electrodes requires a finese and knowledge of metalurgy, not to mention a small smeltering capability.

4c) Carbon resister.

The low voltage "side" of the circuit meets the high voltage "side" of the circuit at the arc gap.  According to the patent, on the low voltage side there is a resister.  No specifications are given for this resister.  However, it is this resister is reportedly a "carbon" based resister.  The EVGray researcher would do well to note this.  There is in the scientific literature scores of articles on carbide and carbon negative resistance being observed when a charge is placed across the material.  This resister is within the "tube" used to pick up the radiant energy.  It likely has an effect on the production of the radiant energy event.

4d) One way electrical flow.

The circuit must not permit a reverse flow or the radiant energy event will not occur.  The resister mentioned above may help to prevent this, but the judicious use of diodes and full bridge rectifier will also help.  In addition to the four diodes in the full bridge rectifier, EVGray's patent 4,595,975 shows two more diodes.

4e) Choking the amperage

By the judicious use of toriodal inductor coils, the amperage must be choked off as much as it is possible for the radiant energy event to occur.  During the pulsing cycle, the coils will have to be discharged and the resulting amperage diverted away from the circuit either to earth ground or a resister system.  Whether or not this can be done as fast as the gigahertz frequency mentioned by Tesla is doubtful.  Thus multiple toriodal inductor coils and a switching system may have to be used.  I am planning to try two very large air-core toriodal inductor coils for this purpose as has been seen in pictures of EVGray's system.

Conclusion

The above are some of the issues I've met in my research and testing.  I hope this post is not too long or too tedious to be helpful. 

Sources

There are many sources for the EVGray technology.  Primarily, the researcher will examine his American patents 3,890,548 (June 17, 1975) 4,595,975 (June 17, 1986) and 4,661,747 (April 28, 1987).  He also has a British patent but as I recall, it was even less helpful than his American ones.

Mr. RB Hackenberger, Engineer of Evgray Enterprises Inc. wrote a short "Technical Discussion" regarding the technology that is, in my view, interesting but hides as much as it discloses.

There are a number of media articles each of which give clues to the technology.  See the "L.A. Free Press" (Dec 28,1973), "Newsreal" (circa 1973), "Probe" (circa 1976), "Progress Bulletin" (July 7, 1975) and "National Tattler" (July 1, 1973, March 16, 1975).

There is one particular book on the EVGray circuit, Dr. Lindemann's book "The Free Energy Secrets of
Cold Electricity" which provides a valuable comparison between EVGray's circuit and Tesla's comparable technology.

Other works include Mr. Beardon's works available at http://www.cheniere.org, John Bedini's works available at http://www.icehouse.net/john34/, anything published by Tesla - his patents, books, compilations, and articles.  There are documentaries about Tesla that are also helpful.  See also works by Dr. Konstantin Meyl, John J. O'Neill 1944, Thomas Commerford Martin 1894, Thomas Valone Ed. of Harnessing the wheelwork of nature 2002, John T. Ratzlaff , Electrical Experimenter Magazine 1919, and the Tesla notes published by the Nikola Tesla Museum.  Though it has been criticised by some, I also recommend the book "Secrets of Cold War Technology: Project HAARP and Beyond" by Gerry Vassilatos, 1996, especially chapter 1.

Everything mentioned above gives hints and clues as to the actual workings of the EVGray circuit and the nature of radiant energy.  It has taken me several years to accumulate and digest this material and collect the components required.  I would like to see many, many people working on this circuit.  Get off grid before there is no grid left.

Kindest Regards,

df

Hi there fletchdaf,
                          IMHO, There is one observation that I would like to make regarding your interpretation of the high frequency pulses. Tesla's originating pulses were low frequency. He also, spent a lot of time and thought on arresting the current through the coils - hence, he discovered the magic timing cut off of .062microsecs for the originating pulse as the voltage leading the current due to the "skin effect". The high frequency was supplied by his capacitors. Otherwise, an excellent post.

Ed Gray, never have find and TRIODE-TUBE than can wort with the announced
(i belive it was around 200Volts and 100 Amps)

Idont know Triodes like this, only gassfilled Thyratrons than can only SWITCH (like an SCR)

i think: To use Vakuum-Tubes - is an wrong way.

Hi there Pese,
                      I have spent a lot of time on this tube idea as well. It resembles more a Pentode valve, with the exception that the "screens" are used as collectors and the positve voltage on the anode is used as a positive screen to stop the electons from going past the screens. Just IMHO.

Here is a new photo of the EMA6 from 1/9/76 Stockholders Meeting to add to your collections.

(Darn the photo is to large at 10MB in a pdf format to attach to this post) I'll have to go to Kinkos and convert these .pdf files to. jpg format and then reduce the resolution. My Version 5 of PhotoShop doesn't do this.

The photo I was going to post is the reverse view of the EMA6 motor from the opposite side, showing details of the commentator and the muffin fans on the power supplies. It also shows a cleaner view of the CSET's

At this meeting it was disclosed by Dr. Norm Chalfin that the measured output of this motor [EMA6] was only 2 HP, all be it near 100%, not counting the recycled energy which may have put it at a COP of about 1.5 or so. The lawyers on the board wanted no mention of any OU energy. Never the less the dismal performance of this "new" motor whitch was three years more advanced (supposidly) than the 100 HP EMA4-E2 killed any further investor support. Gray and Hackenburger continued to work on the motor at least till April of that year by making additional modifications. This was done by adding additional "donuts" in the commutator section. Hackenburger was cut off the payroll by June and had to get a job as a cab driver. He did hang around and worked for free when they had resources to do anything. Mr. Hackenburger was a firm believer in this technology and as far as I can tell did everything he could to make it main stream.

Another photo (again not posted) shows the use of a large vintage Tektronix Oscilloscope (I would speculate it was a 7904 model or something the same size). Therefore Mr. Hackenburger was looking at measurements far deeper than I had thought before.

Richard  did say that the current pulses were on the order of milliseconds - which is pretty long for a capacitor discharge. You can do your own calculations and see what kind of Capacitor and inductor values will lend itself to that kind of oscillation period.

While government interferance did severly impact the sucess of this technology - the shear lack of performance was probably more detrimental. At the time of the stockholders meeting this organization was cash starved and litigation was still on-going with the LA DA. By the time there was a resolution to those legal matters the game was all over. The original equipment was returned a few months later - in boxes. Apparently, the equipment had been mistakenly (ha,ha) run through a scrap iron shredder (or something like that). Of course E.V. Gray didn't have the litigation power to seek recourse or even file a complaint. This is probably why they had to work so hard and so long to find something to pin on him.

What appears to have happend after the stockholders meeting was a general breakdown in confidence of E.V.Gray's technical ability to reproduce his (or actually Marvin Cole's) earlier work. Richard Hackenburger did his best to reproduce the Cole technology, but may have missed some important point. He was not dumb. Listening to audio tapes of him speaking at the time I hear a quick and focused individual frustrated by the dumb decesions by the board of directors. Richard only had a year to work with the original surviving equipment. Once it was confiscated he didn't get a second chance to go back and see what he might have missed. - What a shame.

I suspect that he had it pretty well figured out generally, but was unaware of some simple but important technical feature - like the materials used in the spark gaps or something like that. He claimed that the technology used in the EMA6 was superior to that of the EMA4-E2 - to bad he couldn't prove it by the time of the stockholders meeting.

This was also the time that E.V. Gray's 2nd wife Renete and her father Fred Lenz could see the hand writing on the wall and decided to bail. Fred cast his lot with the investors who were attempting to get control of the patent as liquidated damages against Gray. Fred claimed that he was the builder of the motor and therefore it was his. By the end of the year (1976) Renete had filed for a divorse.

Somehow Gray was able to limp along for the next few years until 1979 when the FCC came in and confiscated the EMA6 and anything else he had left in the shop for EMI interferance. The technology never recovered after this.

Richard Hackenburger got sick in 1980 and was dead withing a week. I doubt if the MIB bumped off E.V. Gray, but I'm not so sure about Richard. If anyone had any idea of the principles of the Marvin Cole technology it was Richard - certainly not Gray.

hi can you post this picture in the download selection?  :)

Thanks.

PS somebody mentioned the radiant effects only run in the gigaherts.
The effect can be generated at any frequency it is the voltage and pulse duration that makes it happen.
The Gray circuit was claimed to be running around 6Khz.

Dear Marco,

I would love to upload this collection of new vintage photos. But the smallest one is 6 MB. I had Kinkos scan the original slides and photos at 2400 dpi and thus the large file sizes. (some are 75 MB) They also did it in .pdf format whic is almost impossible to work with as a photo. I need to correct the white balance and reduce the resolution to Internet sizes, but this is going to take some time and maybe some $$.

On, the other technical questions I can only offer my unelightened opinion. I believe both bits of information are correct. First off the 6 KHz frequency relates to the "Electro Static Generator" Black Boxes output. This was actually observed on an Oscilloscope in 1974, It was a 50% duty cycle DC square wave. It is claimed by Richard Hackenburger that the technology used in these "Black Box Inverters" was the same as that was used in the motor.

According to other documentation the motor was producing pulses at a rate of 200,000 per minute or at a rate of 3.333 KHz. Now this was from the output of 12 (or more)  unit power supplies. The power supplies themselves were alledgedly (from John Bedini) running from something that sounded like automotive vibrators which operate at 100 Hz.

So, I think is safe to say the the excitation current pulses were being provided at a rate of 3KHz to 8 KHz. Now the resulting non-classical energies produced by the arcs or what ever is a different matter.  A common arc will generate frequencies from DC to daylight. So speculations about gigahertz frequencies being associated with the Radiant Energy phenomena may be correct. It is still a matter of just how such high frequencies are harvested and optimized.

A study of the Tesla desk top oscillators will yield a lot of good information about the operation of these kinds of circuits. The energy is pulsed into the resonate circuit at a low rate, but the resulting oscillations are determined by the parameters of the secondary circuit, which is generally much higher. It is like ringing a bell - a single stroke of a hammer results in oscillations in the audio range. The interesting thing about the Tesla oscillators is that they were not based upon lumped LC parameters but used a delay line to harvest and magnify the output energies. Therefore each current pulse is added to the last. The amplification takes place when the next pulse is applied before the ringing of the last pulse ahs died out - the faster the better (at least according the Dr. Tesla).

Hi,  maybe you could consider using free file upload services like megaupload.com or rapidshare.com  etc?

Dear Gyula,

Nice idea if I were not so far in the tooly-weeds with a phone connection that runs at about 2KB/sec even with msn.com compression assistance. I would have to be on line all evening to upload one file. Needless to say I'm unable to receive YouTube clips as well.

At work almost everything is blocked and processing large files is frowned upon, even after hours. This new photo collection is on 7 CD's. I think I can get it all on to one DVD.

But, don't worry I fully intend to make these available in file sizes that we all can work with. I just don't have the program to do it right now or I would be sending them out already. There are just a few details in these photos that really need all this high resolution - like the labels on the control panel of the EMA4-E2 and the exact number of turns in the Floating Flux Field (FFF) component. Also there are a number of photos that are not worth passing on but some are real technical gems (to me anyway).

They were all acquired from an early investor who wishes to be only known as GD. He was involved in the E.V. Gray saga from 1974 to late 1976. He claims to have had a close relationship with Richard Hackenburger. GD also has a collection of about 30 audio tapes of meetings and phone conversations with Mr. Hackenburger. So far I have had the opportunity to listen to about a third of this material. Several of the cassette tapes became unglued and are in need of repair. The content is 99% business related since GD had a letter of intent that allowed him to seek venture capital for a commission. But there are a few interesting technical comments that I intend to write up for this community. Several of the new points were commented on in the last post.

For example, GD and Hackenburger were discussing the manufacturing costs of making the "ElectroStatic Generator" (This was Richard's favorite device). GD said that his potential investors were worried about the cost of the custom made transformer that was part of the "Blue Box". Richard responded that the transformer was indeed special, but it was nothing that a transformer winding shop couldn't produce for a 10% premium. - So I wonder, just what can be done to a power transformer that would only add 10% to its manufacture and would still be considered a novel feature? From other historical research I suspect that this was a current limited design that employed a small air gap or magnetic shunt for magnetic leakage.

I know from previous research that E.V.Gray (or Marvin Cole) was having the Mallory Electric Company (not P.M. Mallory that makes the Blue Capacitors)  build these custom ignition coils. The Mallory company was involved with Gray at least as early as 1970 as observed in the GD documents.

Pardon me for rambling on so long about this subject, but it has been a long time since we have had any new material to work with.

Here is a new photo of the EMA6 from 1/9/76 Stockholders Meeting to add to your collections...
If anyone had any idea of the principles of the Marvin Cole technology it was Richard - certainly not Gray.

There's only one person I know who has this level of detailed knowledge on the EVGray technology and company.  "MkMc".  How are you, my friend?

Hi  Spokane1,  you couldls try opening the images in windows Paint program and then save them as jpeg. You should get the option of the resize parameters. Just a thought for all us EVGray afficionados!

thanks

Dear Dennis,

I'm doing just fine and even more so after this last interview trip. It is certainly refreshing to find a person who was involved in this story that can still remember some facts. Unfortunatly GD has no technical information to share. Never the less I'm finding a great value in what he has offered. GD is the source of the original "Investor Photos" that Peter Lindemann and John Bedini received in Post Falls, ID about 3-4 years ago. At the time GD wanted to remain annomonus. But, now he wishes that all of what he knows is made avaliable to serious researchers. The photos are probably his most valuable asset. He still wishes to be known as GD. He hopes that something can become of this lost technology that he devoted several years to.

Send me an email at work and I'll send you my usual rambling monographs and drawings on this subject that keep changing with the times.

For the last few months I have been exploring Water Arcs, Tesla Velocity Transformers, and learning how to use a freeware Finite Element Magnetic Modeling (FEMM) program.

After this load of material I might find a new direction to keep me busy this winter.
