Been a long time coming, but we might have just snuck our foot in the door.

Awesome, thanks :thumbsup2:
My take on these are (still) that they tap in on the national/domestic grid and "steals" a little energy as and when needed.
Here's his 1W schematic, also worth looking into,



If this were proven to be working as advertised in the middle of absolutely nowhere, like thousands of miles away from civilisation and national grids, then we'd be talking some serious talk :-)

The talk on the thread is that the energy comes from the ambient environment.  If that happens to be from my neighbor's microwave oven, I'm still quite content.  If it comes from the Dirac sea everywhere in the Universe, that's even better.

Some of the complaints raised by Wesley Stivep is that Akula's bigger devices are geo-deterministic.  Which turns out that the device still works, it just needs to be retuned when you move it.  I would think a micro-controller could be equipped to continually optimize the internal resonance.

Just as telling.
When the more powerful devices comes out, in the (several) hundreds of watt range, then the electric energy providers will have hell on Earth trying to figure out where the powerlosses are and why they all the sudden have increased, seemingly out of the blue.......
It be pirates raiding the national grids wirelessly :pirates:

that´s  not too bad. most of the energy produced for the grid gets lost in the grid itself and never arrives consumers´ homes. so that would make little difference to now :-)

to build a faraday cage for test there are several alternatives:

1. use an old metal trash bin like http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzY4WDEwMjQ=/z/UtwAAMXQlgtS7Bbx/$_20.JPG

2. use a box, wrap it with 4 layers of aluminum foil / plastic wrap in turns.

Has anyone here built one of these Roman Karnoukhov (akula0083) devices yet? His circuits all suffer the same issue - no details about the coils.

The 1W device video had me convinced that he was picking up energy inductively, right up to the point where he put it into the microwave oven. Nicely done if it is a hoax.

Update from OverUnity.com:

Two prototypes have gone up in smoke.

Grum has been able to get a steady ring in the transformer using a very small air gap.  He is now working towards getting a ring-up effect.

So for the moment there exists a glimmer of hope.

Looking at this schematic L3 would (by inductance via L1/L2) trigger T1 which would be a prereq for getting a current to flow at all in the circuit, which in itself looks promising with regards to the schematic itself IMO as L3 would continously have to be energized from mutual inductance via L1 and L2, which in turn would have to be energised from, well, thin air.....?
Given that a few of these have gone up in smoke I think it would be safe to say that it would be wise to add some safeguards here, like a varistor over the C1 cap, an inline current limiter for the LED's, which by the way should have one say 100 Ohm resistor in series with each anode prior to the parallel connection, both for protection and for enabling the leds to shine about equally bright given that the forward voltage drop no doubt varies from one LED to another.
I would also add a varistor in parallel with the whole LED network, or a diode anti parallel to it.

Interesting, absolutely.

Lynx,

That's Akula's 1W circuit. One pair of transistors is most likely KT816/KT817 (Russian equivalents of some BD series parts) but I have no idea what the TO-3 part is. Maybe 2N2955?

Coil detail seems fascinating, one winding parallel to the core and one isn't terminated at all.

I checked OU and OUR pages, seems like the blind leading the blind.

Here's Roman Karnoukhov's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2aHNMDJzRW7YDd145_Pa2w

Two documents from Andrei Melnichenko, both are avenues we can pursue.

My simplification of these documents comes down to:

1.  If you magnetize a core and place another core adjacent to it with a slight gap, you can snag the energy absorbed by the second core for free.

2.  If you focus electromagnetic energy from two sources to a central volume, you can get back the square of the total energy you put into the system instead of just the addition of the two sources, provided the energy injected is "in phase".

Some fun with DipTrace.

It makes pretty nice boards even when you are just a beginner.

Folks are getting this figured out and based on what I can decipher from YouTube's translation, it isn't that difficult.

I haven't seen a decent video from that country yet and I doubt I ever will.

I think the only chance we have at this one is to build a known-good test bed and keep trying different coil configurations until one of them works.  Anyone serious about this project needs to get their circuit board built and checked-out, then get about a dozen similar cores and start a plug-n-test operation on them all.  Even if you get lucky and one of the transformers happen to work, no one has any for-sure idea how it works, so replications of a working core need to be built with tiny modifications to figure out what is important.  Only then do we have a snowball's chance in hell of understanding it well enough to scale it up.

By the way, there is one report of a replication that ran for two days and quit.  When examined, the core had come apart like it was smashed with a hammer.  Apparently he super-glued it back together and it ran for two more days, after which it literally blew apart.  So whatever is going on inside that transformer isn't entirely electrical in nature; there's a vibration happening within the ferrite, some may call it a standing wave.  Whatever it is and however it comes to being, that appears to be the secret within this device.  The electronics do nothing more than setup the conditions for this effect while harvesting off a small portion of electrical energy.  It's also entirely possible that without the internal hammering effect that destroys the ferrite core, no usable energy can be obtained.  I hope that's not the case, but we certainly don't know yet.

Before ferrite cores there were laminated iron cores, maybe that would offer one alternative route here?
But I agree, I don't think we'll see a complete document out there which explains down to the last molecule how to put this together, so maybe a dedicated such projects thread here would be in order?
I'd settle for the 1W schematic, that would be adequate proof of concept (to me anyway) if we were to get that one up and running + of course that anyone could have a go at replicating it without the need to ask any questions about how to put it together.

It's coming Lynx.  Grum over at OUR has a thread I have been helping with.  We're so close I can taste it.

Latest test schematic and board design attached.

All that's left is to wind the Akula E-Core with gap and hit it with a pulse stream and she should run.  If it is going to.  Time will tell.

I think before I order boards, I will make an update using a variable capacitor for C2 and a variable resistor for R1.  Pretty sure these components are tuned to the particular core in use.

I suppose I should ask, is there anyone out there that would like a board and possibly the components to go with it?  Or are you all waiting for me to produce a running unit first?

If you're making boards I'd certainly like one. I'd also go for a parts kit if the price is reasonable.
