Anyone has plans/circuit schematic for it and how different is the circuit for the pendulum from the SSG one?

The pendulum appears to be pretty effective in charging batteries and much simpler to construct - no rotor, single magnet suspended from the swing, etc?

Thanks

I'm not sure of the exact circuit John used for that, but I have had 1 magnet on my bicycle wheel motor but the kick is so strong, it actually rotates all the way around. LOL. I'm not sure if John publicly disclosed any of the pendulum circuits.

Darn it does look interesting and he said that the pendulum works pretty well, it being just a single magnet driven by pulse and gravity. :)

I would start with the regular sg circuit but make the pendulum heavy enough so that it does not go "over the top" so that gravity will just pull it back down.

If it is the regular SG circuit that John has setup there at the bottom of the pendulum, then it would probably charge several orders of magnitude slower than a regular monopole, no?

/me is still in load/charge testing mode... :p

You are right, I do not think it's a regular circuit. JB mentions balancing act between the batteries and there's a capacitor outside that black box that plays a role as well, so the search continues...

This is a Tesla design, is it not? If so, then there has to be literature somewhere (either by Tesla or somebody near him) explaining how it works. I've seen the waveforms on the source side and collection side and it's all the same radiant spikes... It shouldn't be too difficult to figure out--I'm sure the switching is very similar to the monopole design.

Again you are most likely correct, just that I'm not an expert in theoretical (traditional) closed loop electronics, and this open loop stuff is driving me up the wall, too. I was always a hands-on type of a person, never cared much for theory...which is now biting me back in the a$$ :)

Perhaps thinking about what's seen and what's unseen and pondering what's been said about it would be useful. Here's what stood out to me:

He said that it's basically the same circuit as the SG, but slightly different because it (the circuit) wants to sit at zero (shades of Kron here!). He also said that it's a single wind on the coil since multi-strand performs worse than a single. He said that the motoring is eliminated since it relies on gravity. He also says that the charge rocks back and forth, that the higher the impedance on the back end the higher the pendulum goes, and finally, that the smaller versions work better than the larger ones.

What's seen and what isn't? On the front end, you have a dinky battery connecting to a BIG ol' capacitor which goes into the box. Also going into the box are the wires from the coil. Coming out the other end are a couple of wires that hook onto the charging side.

Now the big ol' capacitor tells me that we're trying to capture the radiant energy in it as it goes towards the front end when the pendulum swings a certain way. It's connected right across the two incoming power leads, which also says that the current draw on the front end is going to be minimal, since the radiant energy is going to fill up the cap and keep it filled. Some of that will spill into the front end battery as well.

On to the coil. It looks like a single wind, but closer examination reveals a much thinner wire going into the box on the bottom, which means bifilar trigger/power coil setup like the SG. Also, the wire is quite a bit bigger than #23. :) The waveform on the receiving end lends some clues here as well: You see the small trigger pulse followed by the radiant spike.

I wish I had more time to play with a setup like this. It's quite cool the way it charges, and it charges fast. :cool:

Interesting observations, though I am not sure why does the primary battery connects through the capacitor. there's no radiant energy in the primary circuit, is there (if primary just does triggering of the transistor)?

I thought that the capacitor gathers collects it on the secondary end and dumps it every now and then. You gather would that be a high capacity/low voltage (ie. 15,000uF/450V) or low capacity/high voltage (ie. 500uF/6000V) capacitor?

And that coil looks like it's 5" tall, one big mutha of a coil :) I wonder if that's 20 or 18 AWG there. I suppose it does not matter, if the whole setup is scalable.

He says that he has high impedance at the front and low impedance at the back? shows the front/primary voltage rocking and says all it's driving is the trigger. The impedance driven machine, same as SG circuit...only done in a pendulum.
But if batteries are flip-flopping as he says, and never equal each other because they are always zero in the center, that's not really the same as the SG circuit, is it? He even says that later, that it's a different circuit, just to add more to confusion, sigh.

Either way the whole setup is fascinating because it utilizes gravity and there are no rotors or bearings to worry about.

Since I have to do things with pictures in order to properly visualize what's going on in a setup like the pendulum, I thought I'd put this in. This could be completely wrong. It's difficult to chase down information on this sort of thing and I don't have a galvanometer lying around to actually do empirical testing, so YMMV. :)

At any rate, what I have pictured is a pendulum swing going in one direction and inducing a current. Now from what I understand, the direction of the magnet going past the coil determines the direction of current flow. Which means that when the magnet goes the opposite direction, the current flow and battery diagrams are reversed.

Which means that whatever is in the black box has to be able to deal with current going both ways in the trigger wire (the same thing happens in the power wire, but probably does nothing)--and could be the method by which the batteries are flip-flopped.

The actual electromagnet portion (power wire) would not have to care about which way the current is flowing in the trigger, since all it is concerned with is turning the power on long enough to 1), give the incoming magnet a kick in the direction it's going and 2), generate the radiant spike. A clue to this portion of the circuit is that the higher the impedance on the charging end, the higher it swings and thus the stronger the kick of the electromagnet. This means that there's a feedback mechanism at work on that part of the circuit. :thumbsup:

That's all the ideas I have for now, feel free to pick it apart/point out inaccuracies. :)

Shamus
09-10-2007, 01:51 AM
Ok, now I've actually had time to check out what happens when a magnet goes past a coil (rather than all the examples I've seen, where it passes in). I dug out my old analog multi-meter and hooked it up to the trigger wires and set the meter to the lowest scale it has, which is 10V. :p The deflections were small, but very clear in the directions they were going.

The picture below shows what happens when you move a magnet towards a coil and then away--basically it induces a current going one way as it approaches the center of the coil, then the current stops as the magnet hits the center of the coil. As the magnet moves away, it induces a current going the opposite way it was going as the magnet was approaching.

The implications are that this flip-flopping is happening very fast. That waveform is happening in a fraction of a second which, of course, is what causes the sharp gradient in the rest of the circuit. Which means that the circuit is sending radiant energy to both batteries almost simultaneously. An important clue here is that the trigger signal is only seen on the load side, though.

We'll figure this thing out yet. :thumbsup:

amigo
09-10-2007, 02:41 AM
...and I thought analog multi-meters are "old tech", I need to get me one just for times like this. JB is right when he said that most people have stopped experimenting because everything has been "discovered" and is taken for granted as empirically proven fact.

I haven't spent much time past few days on the pendulum case - I'm struggling to figure out best ways of winding tri- and more filar wires without losing my sanity (or feeling in my fingertips). :)

So we get a full wave from one pass, though isn't this the case with monopole motors as well, the magnets pass the coil in similar way?

I would suspect that the curve might actually look slightly different, the magnet moves towards the coil and induces current but when it hits the center it does not stop because I feel there's some lingering magnetic induction due to the imperfections of the cores we use - they do not demagnetize immediately. There might be a short platou then a straight dip across the X axis then another platou after which the curve continues in reverse. But that's all hypothetical, I could be theorizing all wrong. :)

Shamus
09-27-2007, 01:46 AM
Yes, the monopole responds in a similar way, but because of the diode between the emitter and the base half of the wave does nothing. ;)

I may have found some useful information WRT the pendulum. It seems that when John says it's just a SG circuit, he wasn't kidding. More to come once I know more... :thinking:

09-27-2007, 10:37 PM
That's good news. On my end I'm struggling to read many things at the same time and I feel I'm losing focus (or have already lost it).

I think I should first read through the FEG circuit book book just to make my thoughts coherent on the subject.

Hey Guys,

I don't want to burst your bubble 'cause I know you are having fun, but.....

John and I built all three pendulum machines together. I was there. The circuits were test circuits based on John's unique insights into this process. The circuits were John's, but I helped build the frames, pendulums, and coils. I also tested some of these units for weeks.

John has not disclosed the circuits he used so I can't either. I will say that they were similar to SSG circuits, but not exactly the same.

The system sent charge to both the run battery and the charge battery. I ran several tests where the run battery did not discharge AT ALL over a 4 day run. The charge batteries LOOKED LIKE they were charging very rapidly. The problem with the system was that the circuit returned ALL of the electron current to the run battery and sent pure Radiant Energy to the charge battery. After a while, the charge batteries all DIED!!!!!

This helped prove Bearden's Theory that you need at least A FEW electrons in the system. Pure Radiant Energy does NOT charge batteries. All of Tesla's circuits show Radiant Energy lighting light bulbs and running motors, but NEVER charging batteries. Now we know why.

The circuits are very counter-intuitive and you will never figure it out by guessing. The biggest energy effects came from the smallest unit. It was impossible to determine the energy gain in the system because it changed with the load impedance. In the end, the Pendulums proved Tesla's electricity fractionation process is real, since we were able to continually produce Radiant Energy impulses from a battery system that did not deplete. But nothing practical was ever demonstrated. As a battery charger, it was a failure. However, as a test apparatus, it taught us things about Radiant Energy that we had only been able to guess about before.

The pendulum test set-up for the magnetic gate is not related to the later work on the electric pendulums.

Peter,

You mean that you were charging the batteries with absolutely no current? Can you tell us about how much normal electron current has been proven experimentally to be an optimum value for charging batteries?

It seems that pure aether or pure electron flow are both not so healthy for the batteries and there must be an optimum ratio.

And also I was wanting to know what the exact purpose of the magnets on Bedini's Motors/Energizers is aside of the fact that they make the oscillation possible? Oscillation is easier to achieve in solid state rather than mechanical.
I mean do the magnets have anything to do with inducing aetheric flow in the coils?

Thanks

Elias,

We were TRYING to charge batteries with zero electron current! But it doesn't work. At first, it LOOKS LIKE the batteries are charging, but something happens to the battery over time that disrupts its function.

The "optimum ratio" of Radiant and electron flow is not known, since we can't quantify the Radiant fraction.

The purpose of the magnets in an SSG...:thinking: Good question!

John has always resisted the idea that the SSG is an electric motor. He has routinely referred to it as an "energizer". When I worked for John's company, we also referred to it as a "self-rotating MAGNETO". As you have already reported, the magnet GENERATES a small Sine-Wave in the trigger winding. The front half of this wave is blocked by the E-to-B diode, and the trailing half of this wave turns the transistor ON to push the magnet out. When the field of the power winding reaches its "maximum", the induced current in the trigger winding falls to ZERO again, so the transistor SHUTS OFF. This process produces a "relaxation oscillator" triggered by the magnet MOVING passed the coil.

You have to understand the historical development of these systems. John started by wanting to build a motor/generator that ran itself. This goes back to the little booklet he published in 1984 where he shows an electric motor turning a variable reluctance generator. Ultimately, he learned how to integrate all of the functions into one machine.

Yes, it is true that it is "easier" to make a pure electric oscillator, but that is because JOHN showed you how AND why!!!!! But also, the mechanical energy produced by the SSG is FREE and does not reduce the efficiency of the electrical energy recovery AT ALL. It took years of careful study and observation to firmly establish these facts.

Radiant Energy CAN be liberated in circuits that do not have magnets or "spark gaps". The primary trick is "abrupt switching" in a low impedance DC circuit OR high frequency switching in an AC circuit. Tesla describes both as part of his "Method of Conversion" disclosed in 1893.

To understand all of this in its original context, you may want to purchase my DVD Tesla's Radiant Energy from my website. Its a 90 minute lecture and PowerPoint presentation primarily consisting of Tesla quotes from his patents and articles and commentary by me. This DVD clarifies Tesla's model of electricity and clearly defines what Radiant Energy is, and where his Radiant Energy Patents fit into his other discoveries.

Shamus,

Thanks for your kind remarks. Many of these filmed sequences where made BEFORE the research was completed. These films have been in production for YEARS. John never lies, but in this case, the whole truth ended up with a different twist.

More than $2Million has been spent researching all these different machines at Energenx in the last 4 years. At first, we had high hopes for the pendulums. Many of the batteries it killed were not fully recovered until the computer controlled Battery Rejuvenator was developed.

Could this pendulum be used as a proof for the chinese "Lead Out" theory?
Is the gravity aspect not completely different from a rotary machine?
Pretty intriguing. I had wondered if the pendulum was not Johns testbed for the lead out theory....

It is not necessary that the method is wrong.
It could be that the energy extracted was too high
for the batteries to handle.
Perhaps some kind of carefully adjusted sparkgap could guard the battery?

Great Pyramid of Giza Research Association (http://www.gizapyramid.com/Parr/Index2.html)
Talks about rotating pyramids that they rotated. its weight
was changed during 2 periods each year ... radiant energy
comes from outer space and is dependent of planetary
movements. Not sure if this is relevant in this case.

Elias,

The "optimum ratio" of Radiant and electron flow is not known, since we can't quantify the Radiant fraction.




Peter, would it be fair to say that the optimum current is that which is required to fully charge a battery in the time required? In saying this, I'm referring to the charging current, not the supply current to the energiser / charger. I'm ignoring battery condition which obviously very much affects the ratio of charging current to rate of charge.

I think John Bedini's new commercial chargers demonstrate that the bigger the battery, the more charging current needed. I understand his latest charger supplies up to 17 Amps to cater for batteries up to 250A/hrs.

John Bedini claims that negative energy can rapidly charge batteries. Can you say if this relies on a certain level of current in the same way as radiant energy, or do you see the two as one and the same thing?

hi folks, didn't want to clutter up Lee-Tseung's thread.
I was able to get my pendulum working and it's maintaining a nice swing height.

Though the air-core coil is still self oscillating and I'm routing the flyback to a charge battery.
Using 12 volts sla input charging 12 volt sla.
Does anyone know a way to get it to stop oscillating.
Using 24 gauge bifilar.
I'm using a 2n3055, had to use a 150 ohm base resistor to get it to open up transistor enough, base resistor gets hot, transistor stays coo,lwill have to make parallel resistor set.
Any tips appreciated.
I plan to mount single wound air-core coils, similar to drive coil shown, along pendulum's path of movement for generating some output.

Hi folks, thanks for the replies.
Yes it's a 150 ohm base resistor.
Yes i have the diode there.
Forgot to mention, reason the pendulum did not work straight away, is because I had the south magnet pole facing the coil.

Hi FRC, I'm not sure the air-core continuously oscillating on it's own even when the pendulum isn't lined up with coil is a problem. Just not what i had intended.

When i use roughly same amount of coil wire only using a steel core, it doesn't self oscillate like that. So maybe thicker lower resistance wire would prevent that.
In my setup, I don't think using a core would help any, since those neo magnets are way too strong. Unless the core was very small, maybe.

FRC, did you reduce resistance by changing coils, or just base resistance.

Hi folks, ok, i mounted one of my 1/2" diameter steel bolt coil-cores that has about the same amount of bifilar wound wire and it worked great.

Now it does not self oscillate and base resistor stays cool, no heat anywhere.
It also now does full loops, which maybe if i raise the base resistance, that might prevent the pendulum from doing full loops.
Here's a pic of the pendulum with steel bolt core-coil.

I have made pendulum couple years ago. It was running almost a year until I borrowed coil for other projects:embarrassed: It was barely using any mA. Yes, you have to have a solid arm. I used rollers skate wheel as a top bearing with brass rod and magnet cradle on the bottom. Had to play with gap and gravity a bit. I put another rod lined up with the long one (just as I would drive the rod through the wheel leaving few inches on the top) I attached a steel ball to the short end and adjusted by cutting pieces off until I found balance spot where pendulum was swinging without rolling over the top. However, charging wasn't successful. It seems to be pure radiant without current or too little. My charging battery eventually died after few months. I kept it running without, just a photocap with neon across which fired every few seconds. I found this being inspirational and have a very calming effect:)

Hi FRC, we'll be interested to hear how your pendulum works out.

Hi blackchisel97, From what i can see, using the 12 volt SLA input charging another 12 volt SLA, the charging doesn't appear great.
Though it is hardly drawing much power and I would expect it to take awhile to charge, then again if the spike is to fluffy, then it might not give a proper charge.
My intention is to place either similar steel bolt core-coils or air-core coils like shown on right side in pic as generator coils in the path of the pendulum magnet.
Never built a pulsed pendulum like this, so i want to see if gravity can assist in anyway. Like the lead-out ideas.
If it is true that properly pulsed flywheels can add kinetic energy to the flywheel, then a pendulum is the most basic way of revealing any effects.

What about placing collecting coil arrays on the pendulum circumference (path) but with respect to the highest point, so any draw will not slow pendulum and same distance from bottom coil. What I'm trying to say is switching coils while gravity pushes pendulum down not when it is climbing and not near bottom coil or highest point. Also, maybe collecting pulses in cap which can be discharged but again, not when main coil is being energized. Does this make any sense?

Hi blackchisel97, i think i understand you.
What i was trying to think up also, was how can one only have a coil generate when pendulum is going down with gravity.
That seems a tricky one to pull off.
Though I'm not sure if any of that is needed, if by pulsing a pendulum, we can get additional kinetic energy fed into the pendulum.
So many reports of pulsed flywheels yielding extra output and so many people saying there's nothing to it, while these same people provide no data.
I think it's probably true, that pulsed pendulums and pulsed flywheels can gain energy from gravity.
We'll see, going to be trying different configurations.
My setup at the 12 volts input is going 0 to 150 milliamps pulsed.

Hi blackchisel97, thanks for the reply. Any ideas how that could be setup, switching the generator coil only on downswings.

I mean if we have a sensor and something moving on pendulum or other to trigger sensor, how would it only switch one way.

I'm sure something could be figured out.
I can only think of some kind of latch that turns on when entering coil on down swing, then turns off and stays off until next down swing somehow.

This is a high risk strategy. If someone else imagines the concepts,

It would be dangerous to assume that nobody will.

Hi gang,


If you only want to get a charge out on the downward swing you trigger it at the top of the stroke and put it in an adjustable time delay. Once your swing speed stabilizes then you adjust the delay so the coil is connected to the battery or cap at just the right time for maximum charging. I'm sure there are other ways too this idea just seemed pretty simple.

YouTube - The Pendulum Bedini (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RxFFCcJZLU)

Stability comes w/ proximity of magnet to the coil on passing, you can also add another magnet or two.
We would be very interested to know:

What is JB's magnet arrangement?
we think it is super north.

What is that circuit he used that fried batteries?
we do not think the SSG ckt will do the same.

What are the specs of that coil?
bifiler 18awg power 22awg trigger, trigger stops at 900winds, the power coil fills the rest?

Our main goal with this build has been to study spikey and cap dumping.
