A rotating magnetic dipole - Can this work?
« on: December 30, 2009, 05:29:26 PM »

A while ago there was a user on this forum called 'Room3327'. He started a thread on here about a rotating magnetic field based on tesla patent 381968.
Basically what he tried to do is use two sine waves (one phase-shifted 90 degrees) to create a rotating magnetic field. The idea being that the speed of rotation is dependent on the frequency of the sinewaves. (See mentioned Tesla patent and attached pictures).
This created a field like in the Femm graphic that is attached. On opposite sides of the ring there a two magnetic poles, one north- and one southpole.
He tried to extract energy from this rotating field. He wrote that the voltage went up very quickly when he increased the frequency and thus the speed of rotation. I know that voltage is not power but that is not the point here....
He then was convinced that he was hacked and disappeared from this site. The thread is still there if you want to read it.

I have been thinking about his approach for a while and came up with an extension to his attempts.
The problem I see with harvesting energy from the rotating magnetic field is that the field is all over the place and not very concentrated.
Therefore try and imagine this:
Have two of those rotating rings on top of each other, both connected to the same sinewave signal sources. However, the two rings will have their poles swapped though. So if one ring is having north pole at say 3 o'clock and the south pole at 9 o'clock the other one has it the other way around.

Instead of the magnetic fields going all the way round like in the Femm graphic they will at the 3 and 9 o'clock position "jump" to the other ring. This bringing a very concentrated magnetic field hopping from one ring to the other. Remember that this field is spinning at arbitrary speed dictated by the input frequency!

          top ring
||                            ||
         bottom ring

So far this is all very clear to me. What I like to get cleared up is:
If we stick one or more coils in between the discs and the highspeed rotating magnetic field sweeps through the coils (>100.000 rpm) will it have any influence on the rotating field and the energy required to create it????? As far as i understood the "energy out" of a coil is dependend on the rate of change of the magnetic field... So faster rotation is more output for the same input power???

Who can debunk this scheme?

Isn't this being discussed on the TPU (Steven Marks) threads?

which thread exactly please?
