I have made a gross error on our previous calculations. It seems that we can sustain that resonance for a period of nearly three minutes which is the the limit that the function's generator can give us for an 'off' time. I've heard that current flow can be perpetuated if it runs in really cold conditions. This does not require cold. But nor do I yet know when, if ever, that resonance will decay. It show very little signs of doing so.
What is intriguing is that the heat from the resistor does not decay during that long 'off' time. If one disconnects the supply then the heat drops dramatically. So it's not the result of any unique properties to the element that it sustains this heat. It can only be due to that resonance. In other words - it's doing work. Also intriguing is that the steadiest heat and voltage levels are still at the faster frequencies - notwithstanding. I'm not sure yet why.
In any event. There's something going on that not even I predicted. I could still buy into the zero loss of energy from the supply. That's in line with the thesis. But I never predicted a condition that these oscillations could be perpetuated over such an extended period. This is good news indeed. But will probably just add to the controversy.
And for Poynty et al. There is no question that - on this new setting - there is absolutely NO energy being passed from the battery to the source rail during the 'on' period of the duty cycle. I am reasonably satisfied that it's due to the resistance offered at the FET and to that variation that we have on this circuit. Just remember that all such self-resonance has been factored out of circuitry as being unwanted. Not required. Here we have a condition where the full value of that resonance is being entirely enabled. Clearly it's deserving of some interest.
I'll try and post a screen shot.
