I think this is great stuff.
Thank you Matt for that referance,I havent seen that before....looks like pretty cool stuff.
He says that the regenerative acceleration effect is possible, because the magnetic field induced in the coil is delayed until the rotor magnet is at top dead center. Until the rotor magnet is directly at top dead center, the coil acts as a capacitor and does not produce a magnetic field. Once the rotor magnet is at top dead center, the coil changes from acting like a capacitor to behaving like an inductor. He says "an inductor stores [energy] in the external magnetic field of the coil; but when it acts like a capacitor, [the energy] is stored in the internal, electrostatic field." After switching to being an inductor, the magnetic field produced pushes the rotor magnet at top dead center away, and attracts the next rotor magnet. Basically, this is a way to get around Lenz' Law, which is what prevents typical electric motor and generator from being overunity.
