- Reporting a phenomenon in which a quasi-steady balance point is attained between solid state resonance and the first rotation speed. At that point, the meter jumps all over the place.
(Reported by Sterling D. Allan, Jan. 1, 2004)
On Dec. 29 I discovered an unusual phenomenon in which a solid state resonance "fights" with a rotation resonance at a very narrow rotation speed range of between 54.8 and 55.2 +/- 0.05 rpm.
I'm using the Bedini circuit as specified on this site.
My wheel is 16.5" diam and has 24 magnets equally spaced around it.
Close-up of coil, with 1,290 turns of 19 gauge magnet wire..
The base resistor was set at ~ 2.66k ohms. I had two sets of two 6-V (Panasonic 4.2 Ah) batteries in series set in parallel on input (two 2x series, in parallel; for 12-V, 8.4 Ah). On output I had one 12-V (two 6V in series). At the time of observing the following phenomenon, the input batteries were at around 12.02 v, and the output battery was at around 12.33v.
Four Regions of Stability at one Base Resistance
Solid State Resonance
A solid state resonance occurred from between 0 and 55.3 rpm. While in resonance, the input current measured 0.199 - 0.200 amps, and the output current, 0.076 - 0.077 amps. The output:input measured current ration 38.4%
Between these speeds (manually obtained by turning the wheel by hand), the wheel did not maintain, but decelerated to zero. As the magnets pass over the core, the audible resonance gets louder, and the sound goes to inaudible when the magnet is no longer over the core, so the sound fluctuates at the same speed as the magnets passing over the core. At zero rpm, the audible resonance is continuous.
- [Note that from previous experiments it has been shown that despite a "low" ration, the output batteries charge at approximately the same rate as the input batteries discharge. In other words, the low percentage of output-to-input is due to the meter's inability to measure what is happening.]
First Stable Rotation Speed
From 55.0 rpm and down, the wheel decelerates to zero if left alone. From 55.1 and up, the wheel accelerates to the first stable rotation speed of 97.3 - 97.5 rpm where it maintains indefinitely. [Note, I've never seen the rotation fluctuate by more than 0.1 rpm once an equilibrium is achieved. This +/- 0.2 rpm sinusoidal fluctuation is the first I've seen] . The input current at that equilibrium is 0.156 - 0.157, and the output current is 0.055 - 0.56. The output:input ratio is 35.5%.
Second Stable Rotation Speed
If given a manual spin faster, the wheel speeds up to a second stable rotation speed, equilibrating at 191.3 rpm. The input current there is 0.137 - 0.138 amps, and the output current is 0.039 - 0.038 amps, with an output:input ratio of 28.19%.
Note that the current draw is lower at the higher speed; and that the solid state current is the highest of the three.
Balance Point Between Solid State and First Rotation Equilibrium
In that narrow rotation speed window of 54.8 to 55.2 +/- 0.05 rpm, [which is very hard to get to], a delicate balance point can be maintained like balancing an egg on end. I got it to last for as long as 15 minutes without any outside assist (manually slowing it down or speeding it up). Once it starts going one way or the other, it wants to accelerate/decelerate rapidly away from that balance point. At just 56 rpm, I can give the wheel sizeable friction before it stops accelerating and begins slowing down. Because my tachometer takes about a second to half a second to register, by the time I see the rpms slowing toward the ~55.0 range balance point, it is too late to just ease off. The wheel is already down into 48 rpm. The only way I was able to get it into the balance point was by giving it just the right push when it was in a lower rpm, up to the balance point. Sometimes getting that right push took me as long as five minutes, as anything more or less puts it into a speed where it wants to rapidly accelerate or rapidly decelerate.
What is astonishing is that at the balance point, the input and output amps measured (ammeter in series) jump all over the place -- not sinusoidally, but random.
Here are video shots of the ammeter. Sorry about the poor lighting and volume. These were taken at night, while the household was asleep.
- Input amps readings jumping all over the place. 0.170, 0.177, 0.140, 0.183, 0.167, 0.171, 0.142, 0.169, 0.198, 0.182, 0.99, 0.138, 0.195, etc (not transcribed from the video, but from notes taken from observation)
- Output amps readings also are sporadic. 0.75, 0.60, 0.70, 0.52, 0.61, 0.51, 0.49, 0.70, 0.58, 0.72, 0.68, 0.52, 0.58, etc. (not transcribed from the video, but from notes taken from observation)
The sampling time seems to be around twice per second. Note that there is no pattern to the read-out sequence, other than that it falls within a certain high/low range. The high range for the input current is the 0.199 amps of the solid state resonance, but the low range is below the first stable rotation speed output current, as the speed of rotation is proportional to current drawn when the wheel is in rotation mode, and ~55.0 rpm is quite a bit lower than the 97.3 - 97.5 rpm first equilibrium.
Usually, the most variance I will see on the meter for the input current is +/- 0.005 amps, and it is sinusoidal from low to high to low, etc, showing all readings in-between. And on the output, the most variance I see is +/- 0.003 amps. But in the above sample, not only is the variance an order of magnitude greater, but it is random, not sinusoidal.
Furthermore, within that narrow balance range where rotation was fighting between solid state resonance and the first rotation resonance, there was not just one balance point, but two.
Two semi-stable speeds at balance point
It would either stabilize at 55.1 or 48.8. I couldn't get it to stabilize at 55.0 or 48.9. As soon as it hit 55.2, it would begin into acceleration within about five to 15 seconds if I did not slightly touch the wheel to slow it back down to 55.1. If it hit 48.8, it would begin slowing down within a few seconds if I did not give the wheel a slight nudge to speed it back up to 48.9.
Sometimes it would toggle from 55.1 down to 54.8, quickly passing through 55.0 and 54.9, or up from 54.8 to 55.1, but I never got it to equilibrate for more than a second except at 55.1 and 54.8 rpm. And as I mentioned above, I was able to get it to equilibrate there for up to 15 minutes with no drag or push added to "steer" it back into equilibrium.
Some day when I'm feeling patient, I might let this run for several hours at this balance point, to see how the batteries charge, compared to the solid state mode versus the first rotation mode. I would need to do three tests at least -- one for each mode. To do the balance mode, I would need to watch it like driving a car, to keep it in line. Five seconds of not watching at the wrong time can result in the thing rolling out of balance, mucking up the ideal data collection.
Actual Egg Balancing
I need to mention that my Dad has done some very interesting work with the actual balancing of Eggs on end. It is part of a new unified field theory he sets forth.
