View Full Version : 20 Bedini-Bearden Years-Radiant Energy Charger w/SCR

I recently purchased and read the Thomas Bearden book "Free Energy Generation - 20 Bedini-Bearden years" with Circuits and Schematics, Second Edition 2006, and I am interested in setting up a line of dialog with others who have read this book and have built or are building the devices. Since radiant energy is a relatively new concept to me, I have a certain level of frustration with this publication in that whereas it provides much in the way of theory, it does not spend any time on the schematics or building the circuits. After winding my second coil ever (not pretty), I was able to get the radiant energy charger on page 46 operating. Sort of.

I originally tested it without the iron core (cut-off welding rods) in the trifilar coil and had some very pretty scope traces. When I later tried to add the 1/8" welding rods to the core, the unit seemed to quit working. I lost all my scope traces except for the output of the optical coupler which showed a reduced kind of square wave instead of the original complex waveform. Later I discovered that even adding one 1/8" welding rod section into the coil would shut it down when the section was moved 1" into the coil center. The waveform would skew in one direction, then disappear completely. After removing the rod, I have to disconnect, then reconnect the circuit to get the waveforms back again. It turns out that I am losing my trigger pulse on the 2n3055 when this happens. I have turned the 1k pot both ways. It works best with all resistance in the circuit.

I'm running it with an el-cheapo Walmart 12V lawn tractor battery and I have a non-working 12V motorcycle battery and non-working 12V lawn tractor battery being charged. For now, I have a battery tender attached to the 12V input battery. Both batteries being charged were at around 5-6V when I started. Without the iron core, the circuit seems to be charging the batteries satisfactorily. One came up to 12 - 13V and the other to around 9.5V, but so far (a few hours) they still discharge rapidly. They may really be trash, but I'll keep trying.

If anyone has any ideas about the iron core thing, I sure would appreciate it. I'm waiting for some more plexiglas to arrive so I can make a rotor for this device, but first I need to get it to work with an iron core.

I have since found that I am able to insert (4) 8mm x 140mm ferrite rods into the coil and it will still run. I have also been able to add 5 or 6 of the 1/8" welding rod sections around the ferrite. I cannot remove the ferrite and add any amount of welding rods, however, as it will still quit. I haven't cut the ferrite rods off to the coil length as I would rather not cut my ferrite unless I have to. Seems strange.

TIA for any help,
Carl

The FEG is very hard to understand. The schematics have some problems as well but there are some good sites to help you overcome the limitations of the books.

What has been of the greatest help to me was sites that put the concepts into plain english. Here are a few I would recommend.

Erwin speaks good old english -->
Erwin's Work Shop (http://www.fight-4-truth.com/Work%20Shop.html)


Sterling has done some wonderful documentation on his site, I have found the replications there very very helpful. -->
Directory:Bedini SG - PESWiki (http://peswiki.com/index.php/Directory:Bedini_SG)


Daftman has done increadible mods on the Bedini basic circuit -->

Starting out with old batteries may be nothing but a frustration to you. The question you will be always asking yourself is, is it the battery or the energizer that is the problem.

You have done well to come to this board. Read the various message boards on the various types of bedini energizers, there is much good info here.

I have come to the conclusion that my problem exists in my coil. After consulting Erwin's page and hearing about twisting 300' wire sections together, I have a dumb question; If I twist 3 wires together, then wind the resulting single wire on a coil, can I use it as a trifilar, or is it just a single wire? The next question, of course, is why would I twist three wires together in the first place? Although Erwin believes he should do it, he never explains it.

Thanks,
Carl

you use it like a trifilar. using multiple smaller wires out performs one big wire. twisting it makes it neater and increases the inductance from one wire to the next. Bedini's large machines have multiple small wires on each coil.

Remember though that you have two options to using a tri filer, you can use it as a two coil, ie master and slave. or you can bridge rectify the second coil and take the power from both the generator effect of the motor and the bleed over from the radiant spike.
