In standard terms, power is joules of energy per second in time, but that really doesn't help us much in the realm we are researching.
We are looking at field pressure modalities. One field exists in space; the other in counter-space.
we have the diameter and the rotational speed.
could it be that with longitudinal electric vortex rings,
the diameter translates to the voltage,
and the rotational speed translates to the amperage?
It's hard to say for certain. The way I tend to look at this is we create a vortex ring that propagates away from the coils that produced it. It contains a certain packet of energy. If we create multiple vortex rings, one after another, they transfer a certain quantity of energy in a particular amount of time. So that should be our concept of power transfer, i.e. how many rings can we create per second. With that in mind, if the rings are fat and propagate slowly, we have to wait a certain amount of time before we can create another ring--that reduces the amount of power we can transfer. If on the other hand the rings scream away from the producing coil, we can produce lots of them, really fast without them bumping up against each other. In this case we can achieve much higher power transfer.
So we need to get a handle physically how to best produce these rings, without being able to actually see them of course. Our only eyes into what is happening is by watching the scope, measuring the delay between the source and collector. We also need to measure the width of the energy packet when it traverses the collector. We should be able to determine how fat the rings are as well as how fast they are moving. This is all timing and once we get a handle on it, then we figure out how to change the actual shape of the vortex rings--lots of skinny fast moving rings would seem to me to be the goal here. Like everything else, I'm sure there is a sweet spot. I suspect our limits will be in how fast electronically we can actually create the pulses needed. Here's where the design of the coils will help us fatten up and slow down the rings to some optimal shape and speed where our electronics can keep up.
The portion of this research I'm really interested to see first hand on the bench is when the rings are fat and slow moving. I'm very curious as to how the spinning vortex ring transfers its energy into the collector coil. I may actually use a second collector coil to see if the ring continues moving forward or if it completely dissipates in the first collector coil. I suspect the back EMF from the load connected to the first collector coil will break up the ring, but it may not. Worth finding out.
For the shape of the ring, amperage & voltage contained in the ring, I really don't have a guess at this point. It will probably take a lot of work to just make these things first, then collect and decipher them.
