Perepiteia : In Greek theatre, the term perepiteia means an action that has the opposite effect of what its doer intended.

Thane Heins of Potential Difference thinks he has stumbled upon a way of making electric induction motors work, at the very least, more efficiently. At most, he may have found a way to manipulate magnetic fields so that instead of slowing down a generator (according to Lenz's law in physics) it speeds it up.

: &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp"The invention, at its very least, could moderately improve the efficiency of induction motors, used in everything from electric cars to ceiling fans. At best it means a way of tapping the mysterious powers of electromagnetic fields to produce more work out of less effort, seemingly creating electricity from nothing.

: &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp"Imagine a battery system in an all-electric car that can be recharged almost exclusively by braking and accelerating, or what Heins calls 'regenerative acceleration.' No charging from the grid. No assistance from gasoline. No cost of fuelling up. No way, say the skeptics." (Toronto Star Feb. 4, 2008)

The story has generated a fairly significant international buzz of discussion. http://www.thestar.com/Business/article/306532

PEREPITEIA GENERATOR DEMO VIDEO - Parts 1 & 2 - Description follows. (YouTube February 05, 2008)

PART 1 - System Decelerates Under Load

A CONVENTIONAL single armature generator which DECELERATES under load eventually to a dead stop as dictated by Lenz's Law and the Law of Conservation of Energy. The greater the resistive load the greater the rate of deceleration.

PART 2 - System Accelerates Under Load

A MAGNETICALLY COUPLED single armature generator which ACCELERATES under load in violation of Lenz's Law and the Law of Conservation of Energy. The ONLY difference between PART 1 and PART 2 is the insertion of the ferromagnetic material between the generator and the induction motor. The greater the resistive load the greater the rate of acceleration and likewise the greater the generator output.

(7:55 minutes)

PEREPITEIA GENERATOR DEMO VIDEO - Part 6 - Description follows below. (YouTube February 04, 2008)

A split-phase induction motor which is accelerated SOLELY by an externally applied stationary permanent magnetic field. The acceleration is accomplished by the magnetic coupling of the permanent magnet to the motor's rotor.

The acceleration is caused by the permanent magnet's magnetomotive force adding to the rotor's magnetomotive force and increasing the rotor's torque coefficient.

This external force has NO ENERGY COST associated with it and it violates the Work Energy Principle

Introductory Text in Part 7:

MOTOR REACTION IN A CONVENTIONAL GENERATOR

Whenever a generator delivers current to a load, the load current creates an opposition force that opposes the rotation of the generator armature.

A counterclockwise reaction force is produced by the gnerator that acs in opposition to the clockwise driving force applied to the generator armature by the prime mover.

If the current in the conductor increases, the reaction force increases, and more force must be applied to the generator armature to keep it from slowing down.

With no armature urrent, no magnetic reaction exists and the generator input power is low. As the armature current increases, the reaction force of each armature against rotation also increases and the generator speed must be increases.

If the prime mover driving the generator is a gasoline engine, this effect would be accomplished by opening the trottle on the carburetor.

-- Basic Electricty Manual Bureau of Navy Personnel'

MOTOR REACTION IN A MAGNETICALLY COUPLED GENERATOR

Whenever a generator delivers current to a load, the load current creates a COMPLIMENTARY FORCE that AIDS the rotation of the generator armature.

A CLOCKWISE reaction force is produced by the generator that acts in UNISON to the clockwise driving force applied to the generator armature by the prime mover.

If the current in the conductor increases, the reaction force increases, and LESS FORCE must be applied to the generator armature to keep it from slowing down.

With no armature current, no magnetic reaction exists, and the generator input power is low. As the armature current increases, the reaction force of each armature against rotation also increases, and the driving power to maintain the generator speed must be LESSENED.

If the prime move driving the generator is an INDUCTION MOTOR, this effect would be accomplished by REDUCING THE MOTOR'S INPUT VOLTAGE.

Thane Heins travels to Boston to meet with MIT professor, Markus Zahn, who is a leading expert on electromagnetic and electronic systems, as reported in the Toronto Star on Feb. 4.

Photos attached from February 11, 2008 demonstration given by Thane Heins at the University of Ottawa (OverUnity.com posted Feb. 11, 2008)

Early 2006

Heins ran a test in which he "connected the driveshaft of an electric motor to a steel rotor with small round magnets lining its outer edges. The idea was that as the rotor spun, the magnets would pass by a wire coil placed just in front of them to generate electrical energy – in other words, it would operate like a simple generator. The voltage was there, but to get current he had to attach an electrical load to the coil – like a light bulb – or simply overload it, which would cause it to slow down and eventually stop. Heins did the latter, but 'instead of stopping, the rotor started to rapidly accelerate'. Somehow the magnetic friction [back EMF] had turned into a magnetic boost." http://www.thestar.com/Article/300041

2005

Potential Difference Inc. established to develop and market Heins' invention.

How it Works

(See demo videos above.)

On Feb. 4, 2008, Tyler Hamilton of Clean Break offered the following synopsis [Hamilton is a columnist for the Toronto Star]:

He takes an induction motor and connects its steel draftshaft to a steel rotor that is lined with small circular magnets. Opposite the rotor is a wire coil that generates electricity as the magnets on the rotor spin past it. When he applies a load to the coil, like a lightbulb, it increases the magnetic field around the coil. This field would normally create magnetic friction (Back EMF) against the approaching magnets on the rotor, causing the rotor to slow down. But because the rotor and the driveshaft are both steel, they conduct the coil's electromagnetic field and direct it to the heart of the induction motor. The magnetic friction that would normally be in the air-gap between the rotor magnets and the coil has now been harnessed inside the induction motor, boosting the motor's existing magnetic fields that are used to spin the draftshaft.

As more load is put on the coil, a larger magnetic field is created and directed to the induction motor, making the motor go faster. This creates a positive feedback loop as the load on the coil increases.

Heins teamed up last fall with Riadh Habash, a professor at the University of Ottawa's school of information technology and engineering, providing access to a university lab and all the equipment he needs to test and simulate his generator. http://www.thestar.com/article/300042

A respected MIT electromagnetics engineer/professor, Markus Zahn, who is a leading expert on electromagnetic and electronic systems, saw a demonstration in which Heins holds a permanent magnet a few centimetres away from the driveshaft of an electric motor, and the magnetic field it creates causes the motor to accelerate. Zahn admitted that while he doesn't understand the phenomenon, "I saw it. It's real. I'm just now trying to figure it out." http://www.thestar.com/article/300042

Heins and friend, Kim Cunningham, manager of communications and government relations at the Ottawa Centre for Research and Innovation (OCRI) have demonstrated the Perepiteia to a number of labs and universities across North America, including the University of Virginia, Michigan State University, the University of Toronto and Queens University. http://www.thestar.com/article/300042
