"The 'extraction' of electrons by the sink means is coordinated with the pulsating electrical field of the resonant cavity produced by the circuit of FIG. 7, by means of an interconnected synchronization circuit, such as shown in FIG. 8B."Column 10, Lines 64-67.
"The extracted electrons are consumed and prevented from re-entering the chamber by a circuit such as shown in FIG 8B."Column 11, Lines 22-26.
It is necessary in the final electron extraction that the frequency with which electrons are removed from the system by sequenced and synchronized with the pulsing of the gas resonant cavity."Column 14, Lines46-49.
"The electron extraction process also prevents spark-ignition of the combustible gasses travelling through the gas resonant cavity because electron build-up and potential sparking is prevented."
:idea: That last quote... is something I never caught before. the electron extraction circuit actually prevents a spark in the the gas processor... so it doesn't go BOOM! :D
Let's see if I can help explain.
Ok, we have a pulsing circuit that creates a 50% duty cycle. At a certain repetitive frequency.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation
"The term duty cycle describes the proportion of 'on' time to the regular interval or 'period' of time; a low duty cycle corresponds to low power, because the power is off for most of the time. Duty cycle is expressed in percent, 100% being fully on."
So, if we were to zoom in on our frequency to only one cycle. the amount of time it takes to complete one cycle is it's period. Now, when using our 50 % duty cycle, we have the first half of our period on and the second half as off. While it's on, the "resonant cavity" is active. Alternately when it's off the Electron Extraction Circuit is active.
Hope this helps you understand it some more.
