Ok Amsy, the diagram is the picture, very simple and very unstable. But served to test the concept. You can see that the 555's own driver. that is so poor that they could not always in tune. To get this result, the source was limited in current to 170mA.
To answer your question: Yes, the cell always connected, and producing gas "HHO". And yes, there is resonance, see the first image, where the pulse is 15V. (Above) and the current reaches 800mA. (below) and it starts small and increases until the maximum supported by the 555.
I want to repeat the test, this time with PLL, a power FET and a source much larger and insulated for this experiment. (show picture of the setup)
Important note: in the fourth image (yellow trace) as the source evolves naturally (I did not do this).
The result is very similar to Meyer, what do you think?
I mean no offense Don, I think he did the best.
In your case you can reach a resonace frequency, because your diode is not blocking the oscillation of the current between C and L.
In St. M. original VIC the diode would block any current coming from the WFC. So as he always claimed, that the WFC cannot discharge. But in a ordinary resonant circuit, the C has to discharge periodicaly.
Yes your curve diagramm is looking like Meyers. But my experience is, that resonance in a resonance circuit looks like a sine wave, not like peaks. You can actually try this by, using a real capacity and L without a diode.
"Resonante state" which Meyer said, can be only achieved with high voltages (kV).
Because ionising water needs that voltages, like ionising air also needs high voltages.
You can try to inhibit the amperage flow and to prevent electrolyses, by using a larger coil or a second one on the other side of the WFC. You also can use higher frequencys, then the coil will generate more resistance (XL=2*pi*f*L).
My experience was also, that a little bit of electrolyses can break down the voltage to a minimum. So preventing electrolyses is the primary aim imho, because that needs large energy amounts.[/quote]You do this by insisting that literally says Meyer.
And so far nobody succeeded. For there is much misinformation.
The resonance I attained, is between the inductor L, C own inductor (parasitic) and R (NTC) of the cell. The diode is there, and is to ensure unipolar pulses.To test the resonance of this association (L + cells): the peak load has to coincide with the end of the square pulse (shifted 90 °).
If you look at my essay, the pulses on the cell, reached peaks of 8V. and minimum of 2.5 V. Not reached the highest value, because the source was 17W. was the driver and own 555. (Yes, it is still electrolysis).
Perhaps this is the way: very sharp power pulses and resonance. In my example, pulses of 8V. x 1A. = 8W instantaneous, but in the mean = 0.7 W (discounting the losses in 555).
I think that's what Meyer explored since the beginning. Only at the end he speaks of high voltage and milliamp.
Think about it.
