Hi Russ, just got here so bear with me if I'm repeating anything from other posts.
I'm new to Meyer's EPG, but was wondering if anyone has commented on the similarities between Meyer's EPG and Steven Marks TPU?
The TPU (Toroidal Power Unit) is of very similar design, but there was never any indication of a liquid or gas being employed. The principle though was the same: That is a low energy pulsing primary cct would provide a high energy secondary output. In TPU discussions on another forum long, long ago, I suggested the possibility of an ionic liquid core, but it went down like a lead brick.
My view on the EPG is that it would more likely employ a liquid rather than a gas. This is for two main reasons, firstly ionised gas is harder to come by and indeed harder to work with, and secondly the ion density would surely be far less with gas. That said, if the idea is to accelerate ions at faster and faster speeds, perhaps gas would be required... I'm just not convinced this would be so.
From the liquid point of view, a simple electrolytic solution is all that would be necessary. Furthermore, a liquid electrolytic solution would contain both anions and cations that would be caused to travel in opposing directions, so we would have current flowing both directions simultaneously - plenty of action.
So it would seem that the operation of the EPG is similar to that of a simple transformer, but with one main difference, that being an ionised fluid core. Whereas an electron will stop - or indeed reverse direction - almost instantly due to its very tiny mass, an ion will take fractionally longer to do so. Hence there will always be a lag. But not just a lag, the relatively enormous mass of the ions would likely result in them being totally unable to match an electrons actions, hence being totally out of synch. This I wonder is where there might be a specific frequency (or sweet spot, or a resonance - call it what you will) for any given EPG, whereby the pulsing primary creates a constant secondary output. Effectively the swing being initially pushed to a limit only requires a tiny amount of energy input to thereafter maintain its amplitude.
All very interesting and thought-provoking.
Some good work you have going on here Russ.
