Self Powered Generators & Motors - Part 21

Patent Number


The object of this invention is an electricity generating facility having a remarkably improved structure, especially in that it is designed to be entirely self-sufficient because it is independent of any source of external energy and is fed only by the energy it generates.

A feature of this installation is the unique structure and operation of a flywheel mounted on the shaft connecting the motor to the generator.

Another feature lies in the new construction and layout of the components, and of a transformer included in the installation.

Other features and advantages will be apparent from the description, which will now be given with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the entire installation.
Figure 2 is the end elevation.
Figure 3 is the plane showing the circuit.
Figure 4 is the elevation from behind.
Figure 5 is the plan without the circuit.
Figure 6 is the plane of one of the components of the adjustable transformer of this installation.
Figure 7 is a partial vertical section of this element.
Figure 8 is an elevation of the flywheel and its accessories, partly cut.
Figure 9 is a section taken through the plane of line 9-9 of Figure 8 assuming that it is viewed in the direction indicated by the arrows.

The same reference numerals denote the same parts in these various figures.

The generator 6 is coupled directly to the motor 7 by the shaft 8 so as to be driven by it, this motor being in turn actuated by the current supplied by the transformer 9 supplied by the generator.

A flywheel 10 mounted on the shaft 8 has the task of accelerating its rotation and consequently increasing the flow rate of the generator so that it exceeds the consumption of the motor, the excess current thus produced according to the invention being sent to an accumulator 11 to be drawn for any needs.

The flywheel 10 affects a particular construction. It is divided into a number of chambers 12 made in its rim 13 and partially filled with mercury or other liquid 14 that is introduced through respective orifices 15 of the outer rim 16. These orifices are preferably threaded to allow threaded plugs 17 to be screwed in, thereby sealing the chambers 12.

A permanent magnet 18 is disposed in the vicinity of the flywheel 10 so that its arcuate magnetic plates 19 are only separated from its periphery by a small distance. On the opposite side of the flywheel and near its peripheral wall is an electromagnet 20 which receives its current from the same sources and by the same circuit as the motor 7. These magnets 18 and 20 have the role of influencing the flywheel and to rotate it at a speed which, ultimately, stimulates and thereby increases the flow of the generator 6 which can thus produce more current than the motor 7 consumes.

It is obvious that the motor 7 and the magnet 20 must start and act to receive current while the rotation of the generator 6 is still insufficient to power. This starting current is provided by a magneto 21 and is sufficiently increased by the induction coil 22 to provide an excess over the power consumption of the motor, which excess is fed through the transformer 9 into the motor and the magnet.

The adjustable transformer 9 may be of any proven type although the type of FIGS. 6 and 7 is preferred. This transformer 9 comprises one element or a series of elements as required, each element consisting of a brass vessel 23 enclosing a glass vase 24 filled with a solution of ammonia salt in water. This brass bowl 23 is closed by a flat cover 26 designed to rigidly hold the terminals 27 of the secondary windings 26 and the terminals of the sliding primary plates 29. These windings 28 and these plates 29 are inserted into the solution contained in the vessel 24. The plates 29 are provided with insulated handles 30 facilitating their handling.

It is conceivable that during the operation of this transformer, the DC current is converted by the resistance and that the desired adjustment of this transformation is obtained by varying this resistance by simply sliding the primary plates relative to each other, a further transformation being carried out using a series of elements.

The installation thus conceived is a notable improvement in the power generation facilities. It could of course be achieved practically with modifications in the construction, combination and arrangement of the conjugate parts without thereby departing from the spirit of the invention.

1. Electricity generating installation comprising a generator and a motor mechanically connected by a shaft carrying between them a flywheel conjugated with magnets adapted to stimulate its rotation and to increase the output of the generator, and electrically by a circuit containing an accumulator and a transformer and serving one of these magnets.

2. Electricity generating installation according to claim 1, the flywheel comprises chambers formed in its rim, intended to receive mercury or a similar liquid and provided with respective filling holes sealed by removable plugs and is completed in the vicinity from its periphery by a permanent magnet and, on the contrary, by an electromagnet connected to the circuit, these two magnets having the function of stimulating its rotation and to increase the output of the generator.

3. Electricity generating installation according to claims 1- 2, the transformer of which is connected to the circuit between the generator and the motor and comprises a number of elements each of which consists of a metal tank containing a glass vessel filled with a solution of ammonia salt in water in which slide primary plates mounted in the lid of said tank and filled with secondary and external windings of terminals.

4. Electricity generating installation according to claims 1-3 comprising a starting device comprising a magneto connected to the motor via the transformer and an induction coil placed in the path of this magnet to said transformer.

This installation comprises a generator and a motor mechanically connected by a shaft carrying between them a flywheel conjugated with magnets adapted to stimulate its rotation and to increase the flow of electricity from the generator, and electrically by a circuit enclosing an accumulator and a transformer and serving one of these magnets.
