Carbon Arc Spark Gap COP Calculation

(1/6) > >>

Doctor Whodini:
Hello all,

Fig. 6 show the detail of the Coefficient of Performance (COP) calculation:

My conclusion is the Carbon arc is performing as a NEGATIVE resistance-like device. The bottom line is that there is MORE energy charging up the capacitor C1 with the spark gap than without the spark gap. Therefore, the Carbon arc looks very promising as providing excess energy, once properly harnessed.

Uhh, all due respect Bill, but arent you just showing an energy gain? I mean, all your doing in those experiments is showing the result without the spark gap and then with the spark gap, showing a gain in efficiency. That's great and all, don't get me wrong, but in your COP calculations you use the "without spark gap" measurement as Ein, and "with a spark gap" as Eout. That would only be true if the wimshurst was ALREADY 100% efficient without the spark gap. What you need to do, it would seem to me, is turn the crank on the wimshurst with an electric motor and show Ein as the input power to THAT motor, in Joules or Watts. Then compare it to your Eout.

Just an observation. If I'm misinterpreting your tests, please disregard this, after, of course, you tell me what I'm missing. :)

Doctor Whodini:
Keep in mind, I'm simply measuring the "energy" output of a Wimshurst generator plus the Carbon Arc vs. the "energy" output of a Wimshurst generator. In terms of energy, the calculation is very straight forward, and reveals the Carbon Arc is without question, "overunity"!

The "efficiency" of the Wimshurst generator plays NO role in this calculation.

I will be showing this experiment at the upcoming Tesla Tech 2006 conference end of July!


Oh, my mistake. You're Ein, is Ein to your spark gap circuit, NOT Ein to the device as a whole. I knew I was missing something simple. Thanks for correcting me. Maybe one day we'll have a solid state OU device. How amazing would that be?

This is interesting.

Just for my own curiosity, what are you turning the WH gennie with to ensure consistent speed?  What is the rate of decay of the rods? Would a normal transformer work, or is the tesla one vital? What is the out put of the WH when connecting a voltmeter directly to it's posts?

Your assumption is that Ein is constant regardless of whether the carbon spark gap is present in the circuit or not.  Unless you can measure and prove this assumption, your calculations of power gain are speculative at best.
