Newman Alternative - Small Scale without mechanical commutator
«  »
I have being working for some time to make a small scale machine based on Newman's Energy machine and finally got some good results!

Please, take a look in this video:

The project is open-source, so STL files, explained results and building explanation can be found here:

Nice work Rodrigo!

I have to ask because I'm certain you have spent a lot of time getting to this point:

What do you think it will take to get the system up to unity where the batteries stay charged?

Do you have some ideas for modifications?

Matt, I will probably use AWG 30 to get current down and voltage up.
Current peak close to 20mA is just too much... I would like to have only 5mA max.
I will probably have to use Irfbg30 and 4+4 zener diodes to handle up 800V.
So, I believe these changes will improve the recharge phase and decrease the remaining back-emf.

Newman used depleted batteries in his demonstrations and stated that zinc-carbon batteries are indeed necessary for his system... I wonder if these batteries when depleted do act different than a capacitor for example.

I will most likely do this for the PMBO 2018 and change the current geometry to increase the amount of copper close to the magnets and compress the north and south pole.
