ideas from JohnyComeLately
« on: October 27, 2008, 09:18:16 PM »
Hello to all the TPU-elites :). I'm doing my best to be patient, read everything, and search hard before I ask questions.

I built a TPU because it was cheap, I already had most of the material, it was fun to build, it looks cool, and it helps me reach for the concepts behind the device. I don't have the equipment to run or test this thing, and probably won't for some time. I also feel that I should probably start with Otto's simple coil experiment before trying something bigger like this.

I made these CG models to show an idea that I am pondering about Otto's device. He says it's a mobius arrangement, but I don't understand why he says that. It seems to me that it's a pair of circular horse-shoe rings, and it leaves me wondering why he uses a smaller loop outside the coils.

Thoughts and comments... suggestions... critiques, criticisms, chastisements, insults, bashings... all welcome :D


[edit]If the first CG image is electrically the same as the second one, then it seems that we simply have two antennas going opposite directions around the same torroid, and there's no need to form them into loops[/edit]

Hello all,


I would suggest that you make a 9 turns lamp wire pancake. Outer diameter 6" and inner diameter 4". Just that as a first step. Of course, you have to pulse it and to see results you should connect a 100W bulb. The pancake connected to a 24V power supply.

For this you dont need a scope but 2 oscillators and a power supply are a must for the work on TPUs.
