18" aluminum wheel,

About 735 turns on the coil (used up the one pound spool of 20 Ga),

Bifilar coil using 20 and 23 Ga,

820 Ohm resister,

12V 2.3 AH gell cell batteries,

About 1/8" coil to magnet gap.

Coil core is .030 copper coated welding spool wire

I added eight more magnets to the wheel for a total of sixteen. The wheel was able to supercharge the batteries to 16V with the circuit powered by line power. It took eight or so hours to charge the batteries from 12.2 to 16V using about a 20V input. Running the wheel on the supercharged batteries for about 16 hours ran them back down to 12.2V . When I ran the wheel and circuit on the batteries they were rotated when the source ran down to about 12.2V. I am not seeing more out than in yet.

I have run the design in self oscillation mode for about 20 hours while swapping batteries from run to charge positions. The batteries started at the supercharged level of 16.5v. I am only seeing the batteries run down. After seeing my results and reading John's comments I am going back to the original wheel design.

November 1, 2004

The two batteries I described in the parts list above are now charging to just past 16V. I really cannot say how long it took to get them there since I rototated them in the SG model for several cycles first. I have also charged them in series with line power on the self oscillating circuit. They were charged on the Bedini circuit and discharged through a resistive (100 ohm 25W) load four times before they both attained 16V. On the discharge phase I took them down to 12.2V before the charge phase.

Thanks for the comments.

I have obtained self oscillations with a 1K resistor. The oscillation condition is a little sensitive, sometimes I need to apply power a few times to get it to start.

Since the batteries need to be conditioned the unit is powered by an external power supply running the Bedini circuit that is charging the two gell cell that are in series. The plan is to cycle the batteries between 14v and 12.2v a few times before going back to the rotation process. My hope is that the batteries will be conditioned at the same time and maybe cut some time off the conditioning process. Sound ok?

Every time you charge a battery using the Bedini circuit, you improve the battery and its ability to hold charge and receive radient eneryg charge. However, if I understand correctly, until you supercharge, you are not optimizing your battery's ability. I'm in process of characterizing this, but my preliminary data supports it. What I am finding, though, is that a battery charged with the solid state resonance holds the charge it receives much more robustly. You don't see the drop-off of charge after disconnecting that you do when either charging with a conventional charger, or when charging using the rotating rotor on the Bedini circuit.

After about 25 hours the source battery has dropped below 12.2 v and the charge battery is not getting to 13 v. Although very interesting, so far I believe I am only seeing a low draw motor.

Anyone have ideas on what to do?

Sterling's Comment : Next thing you need to do is supercharge your batteries. You want like four on the back end being super charged while one is driving it on the front end with a trickle charger to keep it up. Charge it until it takes no more charge. Be ready to see many peaks and valleys as the charge climbs. Wait until the charge flattens out. Then you're done. That will take quite a while (2-6 days). This conditions your batteries, turns them into Bedini batteries (my coinage). Then you'll be ready to rock & roll.

I only have about 23 hours of run time so far. I have swapped the batteries about every three hours and they seem to be about at the same level that they start at. I have been searching for about 20 years and this seems to be the closest I have been so far.

While starting to get the transistor bias correct I also had the unit go into self oscillations but did not think that was what we wanted so I changed it. I also plan to check this out later.

The next change will be to double the magnets from 8 to 16.

Unit runs for first time.
