Arrow Magnetic Implosion Transformer Replication


I was at the conference as a guest of Aaron and what Graham presented was no less than a public demonstration of a potential age changing technology and few people realized it. I thought for sure that many attendees would be chasing him down to get his autograph but it didn't happen.

Dumb me, I thought he was going to do a Part II of the complicated transformer system he demonstrated at last years conference which was important in its own right. So, I didn't plan to take photos or notes. I was hoping that he improved the COP od that system from 1.02 to maybe 1.05.

I helped him carry in his set up. Just for good luck I plugged in the solder iron and had it on standby. His system came right up with only some minor tuning required.

Graham was making his measurements using two different approaches:

1) Two Power Analyzers one on the input and one on the output

2) A Tektronix (2000) 4 channel scope with advanced math functions and probes

Both sets of instruments agreed on the values being measured. From the warm up moment the unit started at 1.53 watts in and 9.43 watts out or a initial COP of 6.16. The load was a 12V automotive lamp that operated during the entire presentation. As time went on the COP improved an hour later the input wattage was down to zero (with four places of accuracy) with the output still at 9.5. That is a COP of infinity, but lets say around 50. I was in the front row to observe this. Graham reported that he has observed the input value go negative like -.25 watts in.

I have used up all my documentation space so I can't post the one photo I took just after he shut it off.

The device takes low voltage DC in and outputs DC so COP measurements for the rest of us can probably be done with Harbor Freight DVM's - at least at with those COP values.

Graham has no idea why this thing works as well as it does. He seemed to be in a daze or sort of a tranquil state of disbelief during the conference. I suppose the rest of us might be passing out cigars and doing cart wheels.

The best part is that Graham plans to make all of this "Open Source" so that others can build and improve upon these principals. He has a web site for this material but I don't believe there is much on it at the moment. I have offered to draft any schematics he would like to post. Right now he wants to take some time off and be with his family.

He showed all the various wave forms on the presentation screen and offered his best understanding as to how it worked (but no idea as to why). The source appears to be a 12.7 A-hr lead-acid gel battery that feeds an "H bridge" chopper that then goes to a step up transformer. The peak excitation voltage is around 800 volts. The input is a single sine wave followed by 1/3 cycle of zero voltage and then repeats. This is the input to his custom conversion transformer which is composed of two large "C" Ferrite core pieces. They don't have the same properties. One has a high permittivity and the other has a lower value. The cores are beefed up with about 20 Manganese Ferrite PM's (2" x 3" x 0.5". The primary is wound on the upper core while the secondary is on the bottom. The secondary is composed of four parallel turns of about #10 AWG Litz wire in three loops. (The good stuff). The output is rectified with a synchronous diode made of Si-C FETS and a custom snubbing driving network composed of zenor diodes so that no gate resistor was used.
There is also a timing network involved to coordinate the various cycles, but no microprocessor. The output is then filtered with a large capacitor network and then drives the automotive lamp.

If the instrumentation is correct he should be able to loop the system and have a self runner, but he ran out of time. This device only became operational last Wednesday (7/6/2016). On the week end he submitted a provisional patent.
