I'm really hoping this is our 4 minute mile moment. "If he can do it...."

Let me add my "5 cents" to what appears to have turned into
Entertainment Todays - Comedy Central:


[Thanks for all the great humor fellows - appreciated now more than ever!]


“People go through four stages before any revolutionary development:
1. It’s nonsense, don’t waste my time.
2. It’s interesting, but not important.
3. I always said it was a good idea.
4. I thought of it first.”
— Arthur C. Clarke   {a.k.a.  AC}


“All things are difficult before they are easy.”
— Thomas Fuller


“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
— Thomas A. Edison


It's not too good to be true...     It's just true.
"When your critics says you can’t do this, your answer to them is.
We’ve already done it"
 - Elon Musk


“Who is John Galt” -  one of his quotes: 
“I swear by my life and my love of it that I will never live for the
 sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine."
John Galt epitomizes all that is glorious of capitalism in its purist
form -- innovation, self-reliance, and freedom from government
interference.

For those with an Instagram account:  Go to the Holcomb Energy Systems page and click on the Tech icon in the upper left to see a short video clip of what HES calls their In Line Power Generator.  It demonstrates a rotating magnetic field and a 2 to 1 power gain.  HES plans the ILPG to be their first commercial product. 

The ILPG plugs into the grid and provides a power gain to the consumer.  Presumably HES is going the route of marketing a power boosting device that still needs the grid instead of a stand alone generator hoping to fly under the radar until enough units are out in the world to make it impossible to deny their existence.  You could certainly loop an ILPG back into into itself and go off the grid entirely.

Also interesting is a change in their nomenclature.  They have moved away from the term "rotor" for the coils which create the RMF and are now calling both sets of coils in the ILPG "stators" presumably to more accurately reflect that there are no moving parts.  The geometry and winding of the inner stator is also different than that of the "rotors" in the patents, though it appears to serve the same function.

A challenge question for the really ingenous of you! (busy minds are happy minds)

Scenerio:

 - You have access to a "LinGen" (see the brassboard for an example).

 - It has no internal power source and it is not "self starting."

 - You do not have access to any power sources (no batteries, no solar, no mains, nothing.)

Challenge:

How do you get the "LinGen" started?

This is a design innovation question but you can not build in a battery since that requires
regulations, additional costs, safety concerns, shelf life, etc.

Also, the controller/driver board has a very low power (microamp) STM32 micro with LCD display
so the complete device "status" is available prior to firing the coils, or whatever.

Example situations - you're on a desert island, a ship wreck, in the arctic, the middle of nowhere,
survived a disaster or worse... but you do have a "LinGen" at hand, or it can be air dropped, or
you can cobble one together for that matter!

Any good/viable ideas will be rewarded.  ;)

Thanks in advance.

Build a hand/foot operated magneto into the LinGen. Like an old fashioned dynamite detonator.

Should clarify a bit more - the controller/driver card is a pcb that runs along the clean ends
(no windings are in the way) of the rotor-stator plates. Dimensions of the two plates are
approximately 3.2" [+ pcb-SM] x 5.2" x 1" plus coil overun. These units can be stacked or linear,
as required.

The top and bottom of the rotor-stator plates are flat and clear (hint - capacitor/inductor/electrostatic???).
{unroll an electrolytic - back emf - etc. still thinking...}

Cadman - good idea, thanks - but might be too expensive and bulky for a one-time use. LinGen material
cost is about $15 US; magneto would be, maybe, $20 plus case and labour.

Why was it turned off?

If it runs autonomously, start it at the time of manufacture and it runs forever. Or am I missing something?

Read the examples then think about it a bit more.

Shipping (a live device - a definite no no). Storage, again a no no.
Maintenance - troubleshoot or fix a "hot device" - not me. Initialization - on and on?

Ideas are welcome, not stupid, out of the ass stuff...

Its not an energy or power gain.


The original patent only steps the voltage, not the current.
Current is lowered, resulting in slightly less total power out than in.

And your proof or analysis is?  Some varification is always helpful.

Thanks - appreciated....

Фигня какая то нездоровая.
What does this patent say?
There is nothing even round, everything is rectangular. :o

SL,
It's intended to be always on when in service, isn't it?
Also, using some creativity could overcome your objections. How dangerous is it to work on a live device of that power level? Or seal it so it cannot be serviced; must be disposed/recycled.

Or if you insist, package it in a box, that has a lid, which, when opened, activates a small dynamo that generates a pulse to initiate the device startup. It could be spring loaded storing initial energy, or not, requiring the act of opening to supply the initial energy. Let the flip of the flip-phone do it.

Ah, I was imagining the big generator pictured on his site.

How about something like a shaker flashlight generator with a cap pulse discharge. That could even be a separate plug-in device with multiple uses.

The cap pulse part could be built into the linGen with a start button, chargeable by various means.

Cadman,

Bingo!  Sharp thinking, thanks. A Shaker Flashlight concept.


Notice the Lap/Coil/Windings stick out of the Pole Plate sides - wind them into a helix, plastic tube core,
strong magnets inside (with keepers so they only move when required).


Release keepers and SHAKE until the Start Capacitor (SuperCap or layers on the stator plate) is
charged (check LCD Display for "READY TO START"). Device can be held in a hand.

Push the "START" button and walla!

Will simulate this scheme and determine the winding, magnet and capacitor characteristics.

Thanks again - quite smart and in record time...

SL


- a seperate device (module) with multiple uses is also very attractive. Easier to build as well.

   (batteries sold seperately -  :( ) That way the LinGen will still fit in my self propelled electric lawn mower   ;) !

You've probably guessed where I'm going with this. Good to have a target application when you start a design.

At $100+US for <45min run time (big yard). Thats about 4X$100 every couple of years; plus a trip to Hazardous Waste.
