An energy harvesting project
« on: November 03, 2022, 09:04:41 AM »
Hi all,

For the last three years, I have been working to obtain unequivocal evidence that a Bedini-style generator can harvest energy from the local environment. In particular, as someone who trained and worked as a scientist and a science teacher in the UK and is now retired, my aim is to present clear evidence of the harvesting phenomenon and to publish that data in a suitable scientific journal. So far I have found nothing in the mainstream literature addressing this specific topic, probably in part for fear of ridicule.

To this end, I have built a ‘Pulsed Flyback Generator’ and spent a large part of this year testing it with regard to a range of variables that can affect its performance. Up to this point, I have focused on measuring its CoP and finding out the optimum settings for best-charging performance.

The testing is not complete in that I have yet to undertake power tests that bring any hidden factors to bear, and these tests will add further weight and confirmation to the CoP data already obtained.

My aim in all this is not to bring some form of generator to market but rather, as a ‘curiosity-driven’ project, to show the scientific community clear evidence that energy can be extracted from the ‘environment’ by an open electronic system. Particularly for many electrical engineers, an open system does not compute and the notion of using the term CoP outside of heat transfer is anathema.

What good data there is has usually been kept within the walls of interested groups and forums like this. However, with my aged links to the ‘establishment’ and universities, my long-term aim is to get further replication done and add weight to the issue of open systems and energy extraction from the quantum vacuum, what Tesla and others have referred to as radiant energy.

My project does not directly examine where the energy comes from and the mechanisms involved (such as vacuum biasing) but it is of course natural to speculate. In my view, the only viable source of the energy gain is the quantum vacuum and I’m in contact with Tom Valone and others in the US on that aspect. It will probably require a specially designed experimental setup to investigate that hypothesis but in the meantime, my own view is that the theories of Ilya Prigogine on ‘far from equilibrium’ states and negative entropy as well as the Geometrodynamics of John Wheeler are relevant in this phenomenon.

I plan to write the scientific paper at the start of the new year largely based on the power tests that are soon to start. Due to the much better than expected performance, I need to upgrade the PCB, and in particular the relays, to cope with currents up to 20A instead of the 3A originally designed for. Meanwhile, I have written various documents presenting the evidence so far and, while I am keen not to risk interfering with the evidence related to the forthcoming paper, I am happy to provide a link to one interim report (not written in scientific paper format) showing the methodology, equipment and evidence of some of the CoP values obtained so far. This might provide some inspiration to others who are embarking on this journey.

If there is one overarching finding I would state after all my work then it is this: one needs to optimize all the factors based on the unique properties of a specific build. The factors so far tested include PWM PRF and duty cycle, coil voltage (i.e. number of batteries in series), battery capacity and chemistry, charging point on the charging profile, and the battery swap interval.

With my build designed to allow for the testing of all these variables, when these are optimized, then I have now reached CoPs of more than 10 (compared to around 2-3 when not optimized) using HV pulses of a little over 1kV applied directly to the battery. When towards the end of this year I get to increase the peak HV towards 2kV (by changing some active components) the results are likely to increase significantly. These values translate to power levels of 100-200W which is a modest output but scientifically speaking highly significant.

Since the pdf file is 9MB and can't be attached to this post, here is a link to my Mega account and one document that I’m happy to share at this time. Others will follow as and when my paper is published next year.

I’m not going to distract myself with too much discussion here about it as I’m rather busy but I will respond to some significant points or feedback. I felt prompted to present this now as we head into a difficult winter for many, not least for reasons of energy availability!

Blessings

Julian

Thanks for sharing your work, and hoping for the best !


These things “Energy Harvesting “ tickle the imagination
Like an itch we just can’t quite scratch !


Looking forward to your experiments!
Also here you can get a “self moderated”build topic for new experiments
Or ideas to present to  the open source community!


I know our host has also done similar experiments
And also searches for a true breakthrough which can be shared to the world!

Ps
Also I see you are interested in hydrogen
There are some experiments being discussed ( for open source)
Don’t want to post off topic here !

Julian,

Having conducted similar experiments myself using capacitors instead of batteries, I was never able to achieve COP>1 performances.  This led me to conclude there is something happening with the high voltage pulses that is modifying the chemistry of the batteries and unlocking potential energy stored within that is not normally accessible.  The problem is, once you access, convert to kinetic and deplete this hidden energy, you can't put it back and the COP calculations begin to dip below unity.  In cases I've personally witnessed, the batteries rapidly deteriorate well below their rated specifications.

Hi there, I tested a cap dump circuit delivering high current pulses to the battery and got CoPs of around 2.5 but nothing like as good as when the pulses are delivered directly to the battery.

I’m soon to start power tests that will confirm the CoP results and attach a doc explaining my approach. If the batteries retain their voltage then a chemical artifact can’t really be the source, even if the chemistry is part of the energetic pathway, which it has to be. So my money is on electric field induced vacuum polarisation (what has historically been called ‘radiant’ energy) and I’m in discussions with other people on that scenario.

If you would like me to put together some suggestions, based on my research, on how to get a CoP>1 then let me know. These would be suggestions on components etc and methodology.

Sir
I have been trying to make builders and peers ( scientists) in the open source community aware of your work !
Please do make suggestions on your methods towards this gain mechanism!


Would truly be remarkable…
And there will be plenty of replications !
Our world desperately needs an open source breakthrough!

It will take me a day or so to put some thoughts together based on what I have built. Bear in mind that my test setup was designed to test a variety of factors and approaches, such as a cap dump circuit but I found that didn’t give good results. So an ideal unit based on my own results would not have the rotor or the cap dump circuit. I will mention this in the few pages of notes I will assemble.

There is quite a bit of detail in the linked document in my first post regarding an appropriate testing methodology for CoP measurements. Power testing requires a different approach as per the other Load testing doc.

My project aim is to demonstrate that energy can be extracted or harvested from the ‘environment’ rather than design a generator for public use. If enough people can replicate the phenomenon then it’s good for the collective consciousness. I don’t know how scalable such a system can be and as yet I don’t know what power I will be able to extract but at least it should demonstrate that it’s possible to interact with an energetic medium.

I have been speaking with researchers about your project
VERY impressed with your presentation !


There are many open source builders I have yet to contact.. will take me quite a while..( this weekend)
Will probably mirror this topic in a few forums as things progress ( already made a note at
Peter’s over unity research forum ( based in UK)
( will post links  here as mirror topics open)

You inspire!!

My link in the first post seems to have stopped working so here is a fresh one:

https://mega.nz/file/8IVVCaqS#yJDmYbk7IdiY1T0Ppgj4Z-E8YJeE0YDIRczxxz9fUt8

When I have prepared my ‘Suggestions’ doc I will attach it to a post and also give another link which will have a selection of folders in it with hopefully useful material on my build and research (but only part of due to the impending paper).

Being a professional scientist is as much about presenting ideas clearly as about technical and academic aspects. Besides I was a science/Physics teacher later in my career.

I haven’t come across any groups in UK yet which is where I am. But then I’ve been too busy doing my thing to even look for them.

Thanks for upgrading link


The open source community ( which the LENR ( cold fusion is also a part.. is huge ..
And I have found almost unlimited resources in people of like mind
With tremendous skill sets  in all fields!


We really just need one good repeatable result ( anomalous heretofore unrealized gain mechanism)
Shared open source, to awaken this amazing resource!


And seems the time is right !
Thanks for all of your efforts!

The only proof for 'overunity' is a self-running device, which does not need any external input power.

I don't trust any input/output power measurements.

You will have to explain that one, so whats energy harvesting mean then ??

Yes I read it.  i will just assume you don't under stand the English language so  i'm not going to argue with stupidity,

 You said it comes from nothing,nothing is nothing so it doesn't com from nothing like you say.
So it can't come from nothing as you say, in order for it to materialise it has to come from some thing or some where  in order to harvest it.
