No it wont pay for itself in no time. and you wont gain by this new free energy.  Nothing in life is free you always have to pay some greedy sods.

Sounds like a load of rubbish to me. The website is poor - and considering they only have several motors produced because they don't mass manufacture why do they put their customer announcements on the website? You'd think they'd phone them or email them with the news.

The only interesting thing to happen with 'free-energy' lately is that guy on youtube that's found a way to feed the back EMF from an electric motor into itself, greatly increasing the efficiency of it. That's still being tested and verified but it looks legit.

Stop chasing 'free-energy'. It doesn't exist.

I have seen interviews with the owner. The first people to get them had to generate their own power ie not on a grid.  It will not pay for it's self in the US on PG and E but in another country without power I am so not sure, gasoline is expensive in other countries.   He has many out there and if was a fraud Germany would shut him down.  He got a patent from Germany but US would not give him one, they are just owned by the oil industry.  So you will not see it in the US anyway even if it does work.

Why do these jokers never plug the output into the input and keep the thing running with no other power supply?

I can guess why.

Quote

I have seen first-hand three magnetic motors running and have written cost feasibility and reproducibility reports on all three. Two of them I had in my lab and my staff used the inventors' plans to build several working replicas. We also went and saw, first-hand, the Perendev device.

All three designs used "Rare Earth" magnets (Neodymium, or more correctly stated, Neodymium Iron Boron or NdFeB) and our various reproductions used NdFeB, SmCo and Ferrite magnets. We did not attempt to reproduce the Perendev device because of its design proximity to one of the other two.

The results were always the same: they all run down. Under load, they run down very quickly. It doesn't take very long for magnets to lose their magnetism when they are constantly being put in opposition to one another.

Every magnet has a "maximum energy product" rated in Mega Gauss Oersteds, MGOe. This is the amount of work a magnet can do before its level of magnetism has deteriorated to the point that its energy doesn't reach out far enough to affect anything surrounding it. Contrary to the popular notion that rare earth magnets are invincible, even the most expensive sintered NdFeB magnets max out at less than 50 MGOe. If they are used in a device that puts them constantly in opposition, they will run down, and this is the whole assumption behind so-called "magnetic motors".

The amount of energy used in manufacturing a magnet is typically 10 times what the magnet is capable of producing. More expensive magnets are even less efficient. Add to this the losses in energy incurred by these 33%-66% concept magnet devices themselves, and the energy consumed in the overall manufacturing process is 20-25 times the energy you will get out.

There are situations where these types of devices may be useful, but they are not "free energy", nor do they represent any sort of "overunity" phenomenon, nor any solution to the energy crisis.

This is what I always understood about magnets. That they run down with time and that it takes a lot of energy to make a "permanent" magnet.

Check out the wiki site here for a lot of weird stuff about free energy and perpetual motion.

Edit: I had a thought on why they need to do monthly maintenance on the motors... To change out the magnets for fresh magnets. If that is true then the magnets are the fuel being used and changing them out would be incredibly expensive to maintain. Perhaps they only change out a couple at a time. If they change out any of the magnets or recharge them, then this is not free energy as power is being added.

Room temperature superconductors are the way forward for 'free energy'. Scientists are working on it.. but not hard enough.

magents not only loses its magnetic power over time, but also starts to heat up being subjected to constant attraction/replusion. And the heat further reduses its strenght.

questionmark, DieChecker, look at what was written in this thing and see if it really qualifies as any form of data acceptable to a scientifically oriented research into the subject.  Here it is, with my comments in bold:

I have seen first-hand three magnetic motors running and have written
cost feasibility and reproducibility reports on all three. Two of them
I had in my lab and my staff used the inventors' plans to build several
working replicas. We also went and saw, first-hand, the Perendev
device.
What three motors?  Where are the reports?  Which two in what lab?  There is not enough data here to indicate anything about the qualifications of the person writing this or his laboratory, nor is there any indication of what type of motors were tested, and in what format.  This is, therefore, useless.

All three designs used "Rare Earth" magnets (Neodymium, or more
correctly stated, Neodymium Iron Boron or NdFeB) and our various
reproductions used NdFeB, SmCo and Ferrite magnets. We did not attempt
to reproduce the Perendev device because of its design proximity to one
of the other two.  
Again, what is the configuration.  Secondly, Neodymium is the accepted terminology, and there is no "more correctly" involved, as anyone familiar with the term is aware of the chemical constitution, roughly.  The use of the term SmCo is also, by his own terminology, incorrect, as it is also an alloy similar to neodymium and should be called as it is in industry, samarium cobalt.

The results were always the same: they all run down. Under load, they
run down very quickly. It doesn't take very long for magnets to lose
their magnetism when they are constantly being put in opposition to one
another.  
In the words of the state slogan of Missouri, Show Me.  It is not good enough to make an idiotic statement such as this without supporting evidence, and none is forwarded.  Magnets, especially rare earth magnets, are well known for their ability to retain their magnetism over very long periods of time, on the order of centuries.  In testing magnets for Lockheed while working for Sierracin-Magnedyne, for instance, fully instrumented samarium cobalt magnets were magnetized to 14,000 gauss, 32 magnets (the number of poles on the motor of interest) were subjected to demagnetizing forces equivalent to the current gauss measured, i.e. 14,000 gauss.  In this instance, over a period of 28 weeks, the extended statistical deterioration of the magnets would be such that in 200 years the remaining gauss would be 99.2% of the original charge.  This experiment was done using laboratory equipment capable of measuring all necessary data, and was run on a computer test setup using LabWindows and associated necessary gear.  It was necessary at the request of Lockheed Space, to determine that specifically manufactured ring motors would have a lifetime meeting the specified requirements by NASA.
It does take a long time for magnets in opposition to lose magnetism, and I defy anyone to prove otherwise, and I mean with valid data that I can confirm in a laboratory setting, since I have already done so.  It is not enough just to make a statement: there must be some form of repeatable setup, including equipment types used.


Every magnet has a "maximum energy product" rated in Mega Gauss
Oersteds, MGOe. This is the amount of work a magnet can do before its
level of magnetism has deteriorated to the point that its energy doesn't
reach out far enough to affect anything surrounding it. Contrary to the
popular notion that rare earth magnets are invincible, even the most
expensive sintered NdFeB magnets max out at less than 50 MGOe. If they
are used in a device that puts them constantly in opposition, they will
run down, and this is the whole assumption behind so-called "magnetic
motors".
Oh, horse manure.  Where in the world does this guy get his data?  Even the lowest form of science will not come out and make BS statements such as this.  Anyone with any experience using PM motors, such as those little toy motors or small motors in battery equipment can tell you that they will last forever and a day until the bearings wear out.  Modern 2 or 3 phase PM motors have a lifetime limited only by the bearings used and the electronics used to generate the drives.  Tests on certain motors Magnedyne produced showed that under partial load (50%) and with the bearings constantly lubricated, the electronics was not under any major stress and extended lifetime was shown statistically to be >1000 years.  There is no supporting evidence for his claims whatsoever, but in the motor industry there is a widespread knowledge that is contrary to the claims made in that paragraph.  No one, no one, in the motor industry uses nonsensical terms such as MGOe.   

The amount of energy used in manufacturing a magnet is typically 10
times what the magnet is capable of producing. More expensive magnets
are even less efficient. Add to this the losses in energy incurred by
these 33%-66% concept magnet devices themselves, and the energy consumed
in the overall manufacturing process is 20-25 times the energy you will
get out.
Once again, this is completely ignorant of the facts.  To magnetize a stack of samarium cobalt magnets to 12,000 gauss, a bank of capacitors is charged to roughly 600 volts, then discharged through a coil of one or two turns of 00 wire with the samarium cobalt (SC) acting as the core.  The stack of SC can be one or a hundred wafers bound tightly together; it makes little difference.  When the charge is adequate to obtain the desired gauss, the discharge is accomplished through a high current device such as an Ignetron pulse tube, which can handle very large currents.  The charge time is on the order of milliseconds, and the actual motor energy that can be produced is so much greater than that required to charge the magnets it makes the entire statement above laughable.  This guy hasn't the vaguest notion of which he speaks.

There are situations where these types of devices may be useful, but
they are not "free energy", nor do they represent any sort of
"overunity" phenomenon, nor any solution to the energy crisis.
Based upon previous false claims by this author, there should be absolutely no validity placed in this statement.  He has little knowledge of the subject, he makes no declaration of his testing equipment, lab equipment, or any other supporting evidence; contrarily, any reasonable research into motors produced by any number of companies will show quite the contrary to all of his statements.  To say "so much for free energy" on the basis of this nonsense is absurd, and implies little knowledge of the subject and no research into it.
People should know their subject before passing judgement.  I know this subject well, having worked in the field for years.

Indeed

The market and industry involved with power production is reactive.  I truly believe that when we hit crisis point with the non-renewable sources governments will pull these wonders out of the wood work, but right now the utilities are too embroiled in global economy.

The success and frequency of research into efficient power sources is minimal because of the present powers and their financial interests.  There have been many conspiracy theories in the past about inventors of efficient motors being paid off by oil tychoons etc.  I don't know how true any of these are but there is a basic truth to them, and that is that in the current climate oil companies are dominant and relied upon too much to be replaced.

That said I believe Honda are the first company to release a comercial vehicle that runs on a hydrogen fuel cell, and I believe there is extensive research being put into Fusion power, but then fusion is not necassarily the most efficient but in terms of waste and emmisions it is great.

As you appear to have a good knowlege of this subject I'd like to ask something.

They claim that the device is over 500% efficient.

As I sated earlier, if overunity is possible, why don't the people with these devices not plug the output into the input and have it run continuously without external power after it is up and running?

That would really prove the effect but they don't ever do that so what's the reason?

I don't know that the Perendev even works.  I've studied some of the PM "over-unity" devices in depth, and there are some that look a bit promising; however, since most seem very strange, such as the Johnson motor, I won't spend (or waste?) the time to build such things.  That motor, for instance, requires cast magnets of very specific dimensions, and I haven't the means necessary to construct such magnets; further, my analysis of the motor is not definitive enough to warrant such construction.  There may be numerous reasons any such device isn't being used.  Historically, some of these strange devices are suppressed (not just a claim, by me, but factual, and there are numerous examples of this).  A survey conducted of "high-mileage carburetors", for instance, turned up more than 75 patents for these, including the Pogue, which was tested by Ford Canada in the 1930s, and found to deliver extremely high mileage.  All patents listed, save one, are owned by major oil companies; the one not owned by same has a dead inventor.  It is arguable whether they work, but in principle they should.

There are other motors that are far more promising than a straight PM motor, such as that strange little "electric Wan-kel" that runs in opposition all the time.  This one uses an electromagnetic pulse during one portion of the cycle, with three cycles per revolution.  A paper is available wherein the writer claims overunity, and it may be, but I'd need some convincing of that.

I am personally more inclined to think we can obtain far greater efficiency using electromagnetic means than using PMs.  Such systems would necessarily be comprised of more than one simple device, with an end result being possible over unity.  Certain claims are made with some devices now public that those are over-unity, and in at least one case, the theoretical result is positive (the MEG amplifier, based on Floyd Sweet's triode).  The MEG uses a permanent magnet within a transformer type core and steers the PM field using repulsive/attractive fields, which are much smaller than the PM field.  The oscillating direction of flux flow generates power via output coils.  The claims made are that the output power can be as much as three times the steering power.  Not having constructed such a device, I cannot verify those claims, in all good conscience.

The one thing that seems to escape conventional wisdom is that a solenoid will return most of the power used to create a magnetic field to the power source if the drive circuitry is properly constructed.  The field, then, is free to use as either attractive or repulsive, mechanically speaking.  In other words, a switched reluctance motor could be made to produce mechanical power while using less average power as input.  This does NOT mean the thing would be over-unity, just that it would be far more efficient than the current crop of motors, since a large percentage of the drive power is returned to source.  It is a major fallacy that electric power is "used up" always; it is in standard motors, but it's not necessarily so that a device can be made such that the electrical losses do not coincide with the mechanical output.  Standard means for calculating efficiency do not apply in such cases, and there is no "mainstream" means to do so.

Back on subject, I've seen no PM motors that entice me to build one.  This doesn't mean they don't or can't exist, simply that I haven't seen one that works, theoretically, well enough for me to put forth the effort.  I have plenty of samarium cobalt magnets, and if some design were rolled out that looked good enough, I might build it; I just haven't seen it.  My magnets, by the way, range in age from 15-18 years of age, and in terms of gauss are still above 12,500 gauss.  These were rejects to be dumped because of chips and so on, so I grabbed a bunch, been using them ever since.

It is wise for me to explain myself to some degree regarding this subject.  In more than 30 years of electronic and electrical engineering, I've seen quite a number of "laws" and "rules of thumb" go down the tubes, helping those to do so in a substantial number of cases.

The thing that people don't seem to realize is that science is in a constant state of flux, and there are no "laws" that are firm.  None.  What is taught in schools now is generally 25 years old, and for some odd reason, there is high inertia to change that to something more reasonable.

If one says that the Maxwell et al equations are law, then what of a device that circumvents said laws?  It is not necessarily true that everything must abide by conventional equations.  Look at it this way: you are on an interstate with a speed limit of 70.  You want to go faster, and there is a side or alternate route that doesn't have a bunch of Smokeys always patrolling it.  So you take the alternate route, and bust the laws as you go.  The same thing is true in physics: there are always alternate routes, and since electronics is a part of physics, this must be so also.

Let's take a for instance.  The laws tell us that when you build a generator you must somehow vary the magnetic field so there are wires cutting the field.  That leads to the laws that state that the more power you take from the generator, the more power is required to turn it.  Okay.  While this is true by empirical evidence, what if the generator is constructed such that the fields never move, the wire never moves, but the field is deflected in such a way as to take different paths through the generator, without causing the movement of either the magnet or coil?  If such a device is constructed, then the only load on the driving force is that required to deflect the field, regardless of the load on the output.  In other words, the standard laws do not apply, since the machine doesn't do what the laws state must be done: the machine does it in a different fashion, leading to what must be a different set of laws, which are unknown at this point.  The main reason that these new laws are unknown is because of the inertia of science: it is simply not believed that such a device can exist, yet it does, and without question it does.  A brief explanation of such a device can be found by google Ecklin generator.

Having a healthy cynicism, I had doubts as to the validity of this generator, but built one of the things anyway.  Much to my surprise, it did work, and in bench testing, I found that the no load to full load change is zero.  So, output can vary from 0 watts to maximum watts without changing anything on the input.  Look it up and try it yourself if you don't believe it.  The entire function is deflection of magnetic field, similar to a switched reluctance motor.

So basically, while I am and have been a scientist, I will not allow science to prevent me from trying something that seems logical and reasonable.  It does prevent me from something that is not reasonable.  Because some fool law that's always quoted exists doesn't mean that there is no way around that law, just as in the Ecklin generator.  And so, I will say that it may well be possible to construct a magnetically powered motor; I just haven't seen it.

Hi RabidCat,

Good post thumbsup.gif While I do not agree with you (maybe we are just talking semantics here), I do appreciate what you are saying. Please allow me to interject a few points.

This is probably semantic, but to the best of my knowledge the laws as we know them has been proven pretty resiliant and it is the "rules" that we have put on top of them that have seen changes, i.e. the engineering based on those laws.

This is indeed very true; science is not a body of knowledge, but a work in progress.

Quote

If you are thinking maxwell's equations, then they are not laws, but a set of equations tying a number of fundamental laws together. And the alternate routes you are describing I would take as how the interpretation of said the equations (or more fundamental laws) and the engineering thereof is applied. As it is now those laws represent a very good description of our observable Universe.  Are they universally correct? Probably not. But in my opinion we are talking small tweaks in extreme scenarios.

Quote

Let's take a for instance.  The laws tell us that when you build a generator you must somehow vary the magnetic field so there are wires cutting the field.
That leads to the laws that state that the more power you take from the generator, the more power is required to turn it.


Here I would strongly disagree with the emphasized part. While it is absolutely true that the more power is taken from the generator, the more power is required to turn, that does not derive from the fact that to accomplish the generation of current we need a varying magnetic field. And the latter is read from the laws.

Quote

Okay.  While this is true by empirical evidence, what if the generator is constructed such that the fields never move, the wire never moves, but the field is deflected in such a way as to take different paths through the generator, without causing the movement of either the magnet or coil?


This is now an engineering task and not "breaking" the laws as we know. In the end if such a device could be constructed (I have no idea whether it is actually possible), the deflection of the magnetic field as I read it from your description would effectively constitute a varying magnetic field, thus causing a current generation as described by the laws as we know them original.gif

QUOTE
If such a device is constructed, then the only load on the driving force is that required to deflect the field, regardless of the load on the output.


Again, that would be cause and effect described by 2 different sets of laws so I cannot see how we can make that association.

QUOTE
In other words, the standard laws do not apply, since the machine doesn't do what the laws state must be done: the machine does it in a different fashion, leading to what must be a different set of laws, which are unknown at this point.


No. A machine like that will still obey the laws as we know them (please see above). I will, however, include the caveat that maybe at the boundary conditions for the laws as we know them, maybe there is a way to generate a current from a static magnetic field albeit I doubt it.

The main reason that these new laws are unknown is because of the inertia of science: it is simply not believed that such a device can exist, yet it does, and without question it does.  A brief explanation of such a device can be found by google Ecklin generator.


Hehe, the inertia of science can indeed be quite something. However, that said there is always the stubborn, the oddball, the persistent. From my experience, if you tell 1000 scientists something can't be done, 999 of them will go do something else where the last one will be "bugger me, of course it can" and in some instances it turns up nothing, in others it does.

I am trying to figure out how the Ecklin generator actually works and I have a hard time of seeing what the big difference really is from a standard generator, except for the fact that this is a lot harder to actually engineer wink2.gif

QUOTE
Having a healthy cynicism, I had doubts as to the validity of this generator, but built one of the things anyway.  Much to my surprise, it did work, and in bench testing, I found that the no load to full load change is zero.  So, output can vary from 0 watts to maximum watts without changing anything on the input.  Look it up and try it yourself if you don't believe it.  The entire function is deflection of magnetic field, similar to a switched reluctance motor.


That is quiet interesting. Do you have some drawings/pictures of your device that you could possibly send (PM me for email). I would love to put something like that together in my lab (I am sure I can scavenge the parts somewhere). original.gif

QUOTE
So basically, while I am and have been a scientist, I will not allow science to prevent me from trying something that seems logical and reasonable.  It does prevent me from something that is not reasonable.  Because some fool law that's always quoted exists doesn't mean that there is no way around that law, just as in the Ecklin generator.  And so, I will say that it may well be possible to construct a magnetically powered motor; I just haven't seen it.


Oh, I am pretty sure that it is actually possible to make a magnetic motor and I don't see that the laws of physics as we know them prohibit us to do so. But so far I think it is a question of engineering such a construction and the flexibility it has compared to current generators.

And then just generally, I do not like the term "free energy", there is no such thing. First of all, even if an over-unity generator did exist, building it has a cost associated with it and thus one pays *mumble* dollars up front and the longer it is running, the cheaper the total energy outcome is.  But it will never be free. I personally prefer unity or over-unity device or the like, but that is just me nitpicking (I know, it's a phobia, but I can't help it wink2.gif ).

Secondly, I am probably one of these "inertia-of-science-night-mare-ridden" folks, but I have a serious problem with over-unity generators. I can see mankind achieving energy generation devices that we cannot even begin to fathom in our time and age, maybe even to the point of extracting energy directly out of the space-time fabric (and, no, I am NOT talking zero point energy extraction, which is another concept that really annoys me wink2.gif ), but getting energy out of nothing is just something I have a serious problem with. For energy to come out, at least an equal amount of energy has to come in.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

I tend to agree with badeskov that no device will ever provide free energy. At best it will convert a existing power source into another power source at little loss. Permenant magnets are just another source of power, like electricity, desiel fuel hydro-power or heat.

Also from the researching I've done online, MGO is still a very common term, as is calling the magnets Neodymium Iron Boron. RabidCat talks a lot of Jargon, but does not provide links to back up said facts.

I think RabidCat is seeing Zebras instead of horses, because that is what he wants to see.

The fact is that the Perendev motor puts out power, but requires monthly maintenance to the tune of up to 600 euros. Do you think that maintenance is work on the magnets or bearings? Is that a lot for your average European, compared to paying an electric bill? Do Europeans even pay an electricity bill. Mine here ranges from $40 to $120 depending on the season.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
