Discussion page for Directory:Electrostatic Generator by Walter Owens and Company
I spoke with Walter Owens a couple of times today by phone in preparing the feature page Directory:Electrostatic Generator by Walter Owens and Company.
Several red flags came up for me
The longest any of his prototypes have run continuously is 3 hours (his last prototype)
His last prototype was burning up batteries, regulators, and coils.
In the same breath he says this device will run 25 years with no problems
He thinks the next prototype build will be ready to go into production.
He's supposed to be an accomplished inventor.
I think its worth looking into, but he has a weak sense of what it takes to bring energy technology to market.
Still deep in R&D.
Self-Running Generator powered by Static Electricity (November 23, 2006)
Static electricity - Walter is right that static is everywhere. But it has its set of 'special' problems. I have played around quite a bit with static elctricity, even to the point of building my own very large Van de Graf. The one thing that I could not do was to hold on to the charge long enough to get it to any useful work. (23 Nov 2006)
