I spoke to all the recipients of those invitations. Surprisingly amenable to the idea of a demonstration - all round. Some expressed concerns related to the expense of flying down for such a brief visit. I countered that the results may be that significant to warrant this. The more so as it points to some possible solutions to our energy crisis. Not sure if my argument carried weight. I've offered everyone an option of coming to view the test after that official demo, if required, and if they are unable to come down on the 12th for whatever reason. The invite only stressed the need for this phenomenon - or effect - to be thoroughly evaluated. I also stressed, where needed, that there are NO patent restrictions.
Now we need to concentrate on preparing that report and preparing what needs showing at that demo. It is a fact that this resonance is elusive. There are a couple of settings where it shows itself readily. There are others where it will come and then it just disappears again. And nothing we do seems to coax it back. It seems to find its own good time and we're yet to establish what's needed to hold it. This is especially true of those higher wattages where the 'on' time kicks in and then pumps so much energy so quickly - that I panic about the voltage tolerances of the DSO's and turn it off - quick. I have captured a few of these shots. The previous refers. There is only once that I've managed to bring that voltage back down to an acceptable level. Then the resistor just cooked - and the battery voltage just climbed. But it climbed from an earlier dramatic one volt drop.
I am entirely satisfied that our conventional use of DC, or indeed any current, has been grossly inefficient. The only reference I find in Wiki - relates to the 'problems' associated with unwanted 'heat' or corruptions to sundry signals - that result from 'self inductance' as its termed. My own argument is based on the idea that we're dealing with two entirely different sources of voltage and current - and that these are neither able to settle nor fully discharge. That's what generates that resonance. And that resonating condition holds the supply charge at that required high level. I am not sure that it actually adds to it. But. Where it can be induced to 'spike' - which is also a result of the frequency setting - then it most certainly adds to the net charge of the initial supply. And that resonance - that current flow - certainly moves through the entire circuit - first in one direction - and then in the reverse direction. First clockwise then anti clockwise. And while this current moves through the battery in both directions - it does not result in any depreciation of charge from that supply.
Also. Just as an aside. It seems that this resonance - at the slowest frequency setting on the Functions Generator - can induce a resonance that lasts for up to 3 minutes. I would like to know what would happen if one could extend the time between the on and off even more. I personally think we're looking at something that - dare I say it - smacks of perpetual motion. And it's not noise - guys. It sustains those really high voltages. And the evidence is that the temperature at the load just keeps climbing. Slowly - but in excess of 40 degrees centigrade over ambient in the half hour that this ran. Nor is the energy coming from the functions generator.
It's all very intriguing.
PS I CHANGED 3 SECONDS TO 3 MINUTES. Apologies for that first error.
