I've had a couple of people tell me about an inventor in West Virginia, USA, who has an interesting technology that appears to be an exotic free energy device.

Here's a link to the local newspaper coverage that came out a few days ago about it:

Local inventor gets patent - In February 2015, Hicks built a small prototype to prove that a small, high efficient, DC motor, rated at 3 HP, could produce enough hydraulic PSI to be able to run hydraulic motors at 3,600 rpm with a 3,000 PSI rating. It is also able to produce enough force to run two generators... (WilliamsonDailyNews July 24, 2015)

I contacted the author of that article and got the inventor's email, to get more information. He graciously called me, and we were able to talk for just over an hour.

It turns out that Daniel Hicks' technology, which he came up with, along with help from several others in building his first prototype, is an interesting variation of the Directory:Motor-Generator Self-Looped with Usable Energy Left Over concept, of which we've found over 50 unique instances around the planet in the past three years. For those of you not familiar, a QMoGen entails a smaller motor powering a larger generator, which is able to keep the motor turning, while producing excess power for consumption -- because in the process, somehow it harnesses the wheelwork of nature in some new way that we don't yet fully understand. The shape of the letter Q conveys the notion of "self-looped, with energy left over."

For 35 years, Daniel has worked as an electrician in the mining industry, underground, certified in high to medium load. He's presently the chief electrician. That is where he got the idea for his system. He had noticed that a small amount of DC power into a DC motor was able to create high pressure in hydraulics -- "200% more power than what I needed". "A 3 HP generator, usually takes 20 HP gasoline power motor to drive it, but I could get the same output with just a 2 HP DC motor." That's where he got the idea of building this self-sustaining system -- and it worked.

His system is quite involved. It has three sets that take turns. So, everything you see in the tent is part of the whole assembly. Each of the three sets includes the following components:

36-Volt battery array comprised of six 6-V deep cycle, lead-acid batteries in series each with 360 A-h capacity.

Three DC motors 3 HP each, which run on the 36-V supply.

A hydraulic system that is powered by the DC motors.

Two AC generators phased together, each capable of 2.9 KVA.

An AC-powered battery charger to recharge the batteries.

Only 21% of the power is all that is needed to loop back into the system to recharge the batteries.

According to my calculations, the gross power output is 5.8 kW. The battery charger consumes 1.2 kW, leaving 4.6 kW net for external power supply.

He runs each set for about 3-4 hours, careful not to let the batteries get below 50% of their capacity.

When the next set comes online, the 21% of power from one of the AG generators isn't looped back to its own batteries, but goes to recharge the batteries of the set that just ran.

He said the whole prototype, all of which is from off-the-shelf components, cost $20,000 USD.

Solar Hybrid

One clever thing that Hicks included in his patent application was to use solar panels to recharge the batteries as well, so if you have solar overhead, all of the energy from the generators can go towards AC power, not recharging the batteries.

Math Memo: In my conversation with Hicks, I found several times that his math did not come out right. It seems he might be a bit dyslexic or otherwise challenged when it comes to running numbers. So my advice is to not take his word for any calculations, sums, run times, etc. I don't think the numbers he gave to the local reporter for the 20- and 40-hour run times were accurate. According to those numbers, dividing the total kW-h by the number of hours run, he's producing 17.4 kW on average, which couldn't be, since the maximum output of two generators running together is 5.8 kW.

The longest he's ever run his system continuously is 20 hours. The total run time for the prototype is 120 hours.

The hydrogen gas mentioned in the local news story comes from the off-gassing of the lead-acid batteries.

The heat comes from the DC motors and AC generators and especially the hydraulic system. These will be water-cooled in finished systems. He plans on running that water into greenhouses in the winter to provide heat for year-round growing.

Like I already said, we've encountered over 50 of these QMoGen systems. However, besides it's unique set-up, another thing that sets this one apart is how much attention and support it is getting. Here are some highlights, many of which were mentioned in the local article.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul has sent a letter of encouragement, noting that he's working on legislation to provide support for research and development of more exotic energy modalities.

Tesla Motors Company wanted to buy Hicks' prototype, but Hicks declined, saying he wants to keep the jobs in WV. He wants to roll it out from WV to the planet.

In June, Congressman Evan Jenkins’ aide, Mr. Chad Story, went to Hicks’ residence to witness the system run and have Hicks go over all the ins and outs on how it operates and listened and learned about all the positive advantages this system could bring to WV. “He liked what he saw and agreed to help in any way to get the patent work done and completed, and so far, he has kept his word,” stated Hicks.

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin has also helped assist Hicks with a way to get the patent work done.

A proposal is expected by the Department of Energy but, as with anything else, it will take some time.

A little correction needs to be made on the local story. He doesn't have the patent awarded yet. It's still in the review process.

Hicks has already sourced out the materials he will need to build a MW range power plant using his technology, including the associated greenhouses. "We have plans to go ahead and get loan money." Each of six 1250 kW generators cost $183k USD.

The prototype on his front lawn is being packed up into a trailer to be taken to a more secure location, and will be set up again in the next few days in front of the State Capital for a EKB TV demonstration of the system running.

Company: Green Line Energy Systems

Quoting from

: Hicks said that the prototype would not have been possible without his partner, retired businessman, Daniel Akers of North Matewan. Akers is the former co-owner of Akers Magnetite Supply.

: “Daniel invested in something that he really didn’t fully understand but was the only person who was willing to take the chance,” stated Hicks. “He understood the risks but agreed that if it works out it would be good for everyone in the county and good jobs might come and keep people employed. So we set out and built it.”

: The Green Line Energy company will deal only with three commodities, which are electrical energy, food and fuel, three things that will always be in demand, and in high-demand at that. The company will be a source of steady employment for everyone and it will show the world that the southern coal fields can adapt and still be major energy producers.

Inventor: Daniel Hicks

Quoting from

: Hicks began his adult life in his early 20’s when he enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1979. Following his time served in the Army he got a job with Ford Motor Company, who paid his way through college at Bowling Green University where he earned a degree in drafting design.

: He later pursued a career in the coal mining industry where he worked as an electrician in numerous different coal mines in the area. His job as an electrician taught him, not only about electricity, but exactly how it works and gave him brilliant ideas on new ways to produce energy.

: Because Hicks has lived and seen the decline in coal for energy and has watched thousands lose their jobs due to the decline, he decided that there was no better time than the present to put his ideas into motion and make his dream a reality. Hicks was determined to invent something to produce energy in the way he had imagined. Something more efficient and clean and something that would allow laid off coal miners to stay here in W.Va. and Ky. and still be employed with a company that still produces energy. He began putting his plan into action around four years ago when he started building his Green Line Energy System in his own front yard.
