    This I have verified, not just for the Hairpin but for most Spark Ignited to Transformer or I Think its also called "Impulse Current". which actually make sense... since I make my own caps, I've tried Pulsing 1nf at Higher Frequency and 10nf At lower frequency (by using same Input to charge the capacitor), and found pulsing at 10nf Better,.. but only under "Lower Voltage Pulses" (3-10kv) Higher Voltage at lower capacitance (higher Frequency) I found Better.. I think what matters is the total Energy of the Capacitor in Joules.. (W=1/2 C V squared).. by this equation we can infer that Total Energy is increased better by Increasing Voltage compared to Capacitance.. The only problem with this is of course Insulation.. hehe

    I've tried this before and I tried it again, It was white.. no blue aura, just white.. on the conventional side Its also white but with Blue Aura.. the only downside is that Its a little weaker (visually) maybe this is because it discharging to the environment too..

    Have you tried measuring the output?.. I'm getting 2-5 Volt AC when leads are in both Output leads (open circuit Voltage) when only 1 Lead is connected there is one side with Higher AC Voltage than the Other (probably because of the Capacitor's First Pulse).., when the Other Lead is Grounded AC voltage Increase to 50-70 Volts... when Shorted, yellow sparks fly away!.. with this I could light a 50 watt Halogen and 20 Watt halogen (not fully lit)..
    my transformer is Air core 4000+ Turns(3 Kilo #21) : Secondary 20 Turns #16 (Partnered Output Coil Configuration)

    not sure how this happens, maybe its just out of phase and need Power Factor Corrections.. I dunno... I don't even know how to do that..

    anyone have any Idea How can I find the true Voltage of my output?

    Hey, good find! At first glance, this appears to be a granted Mexican patent to Don Smith that is essentially identical to the apparently never granted US patent application for Don's dipole generator, which is found in the "Resonance Energy Methods" booklet. My spanish isn't the greatest but the text seems to read basically the same. However, on a closer look it isn't identical. There are a couple of additional parts in the diagram (#18,19, and 21) that are not present on the diagram in "Resonance Energy Methods". The really interesting one is #21, which is apparently a small coil ("pequena bobina") with terminals ("con salidas"). It "que permite el generar electricidad para auto alimentar el invento", which I would translate as "which permits to generate electricity for automatically feeding the invention", or something kind of like that. Apparently it enables self-running. This definitely merits some further study, thanks! I don't suppose you uncovered any other foreign patents by Don?

    Thank you
    Excellent question! I don't think it matters, the physical effect should show up in either case. As usual, there are design trade-offs: air core doesn't saturate and has no hysteresis losses but usually suffers from a low coupling coefficient. With a ferrite core (or iron laminations at low frequencies), the advantage is you get a much higher coupling coefficient and much better power transfer. However, then you have to cope with the other design issues (saturation and core loss). With a spark-excited design operating at high frequencies it would be an easier choice to use air core coils, but for best power transfer it would probably be a good idea to use a resonant cap on the secondary to match its frequency to the primary circuit. This would mean it's operating somewhat like a step-down Tesla coil. Since the Q of the secondary side tuned circuit will be low with any load on it, the tuning will be broad and precise matching probably isn't necessary.

    I had pretty good results with the existing core I had around, it's a powdered iron Micrometals T650-52 core (6.5" diameter, 52 mix). Primary is 82 turns of 16 gauge speaker wire, secondary is 5 turns of 16 gauge speaker wire, no resonant cap on the secondary.

    Ok, is everyone with me so far? I'll proceed to the next step.

    Consider the famous "Tesla Hairpin Circuit", star of a few interesting youtube videos and general science curiousity. Normally used for entertainment, much like the Tesla Coil. Many (perhaps most?) serious experimenters concede that this circuit can produce unusual effects not easily explained by normal electricity, such as the ability to light up bulbs across a dead short and the ability to touch both sides without harm, even while bulbs are lit clearly drawing power. Some even go so far as to call this "cold electricity", without being clear whether they mean exactly the same thing as Gray did or not.

    If you will at least consider my hypothesis that the capacitance of any capacitor acts as a phase-conjugate mirror then it should be clear what is happening in the hairpin circuit. As the inimitable mranguswangus illustrates in his video, one side is "conventional" energy, the side across the caps is "unconventional" energy. Yes, when driven with a spark gap there are certainly very short sharp pulses but I don't think this itself is what causes the unusual effects. Allow me to illustrate with my poor photoshop skills.

    If you were to take two of the Tesla radiant energy receiver circuits, and place them back to back in mirror fashion such that their "ground" connections" meet, you would end up with a circuit very much like the hairpin circuit (except for the output transformer). Obviously the high voltage sources at either end of the "implied capacitors" would need to be of opposite polarity, and in this case the need for the ground connection has been obviated.

    Hmmm, doesn't this circuit look mighty familiar? Where have I seen this before? Oh yes, the Hermann Plauson patent #1540998, from 1925! Let's see, that doesn't look too hard to build, certainly I have a few parts kicking around the parts bin that might prove useful....

    Hi tswift.

    I have not tried any form of quenching, but this would probably improve the power efficiency of the circuit a bit and might also lead to better radiant effects. Probably beneficial but not essential to demonstrate unusual physics at work. Certainly the spark gap method is viable, I had immediate success lighting up a bulb with parts I already had on hand. Note that this is almost certainly not a power gain in wattage terms, as usual what I'm doing is exploring and observing carefully, looking for any unusual effects. Based on what I theorize so far, I think using larger caps for the hairpin will probably lead to more radiant energy. Unfortunately I don't have any other doorknob caps to try, and big ones aren't cheap. I do have some suitable polyester film caps I could string together in a stack but I haven't tried this.

    I did try to test the theory I had before, not with transformers but just 2 spark gap, I did manage to get two sparks, One on the conventional Side , and One In between the Capacitors... Am quite sure I didn't blow the dielectric of the capacitors, as It wouldn't spark at all if I did.. nice theory twsift kudos to you!
    Interesting... what color was the spark?

    Also, a theory is just a theory until proven by experiment. I'm sure all of us here have read stacks and stacks of material by numerous experimenters and researchers. A whole lot of it is just pseudoscience and bears little resemblance to reality. Ultimately science can't even really tell us whether a theory is in actuality "true", all it can tell us is that it agrees with the particulars of carefully performed repeated experiments and becomes generally accepted, until and unless superseded by a better theory. But thank you, I understand what you meant.

    You get it, right? It's essentially the same circuit as the 1925 Plauson converter, except with a resonant cap on the transformer primary. It isn't made clear in the text or the diagram, but it seems as if the circuit is designed to operate at 50 Hz with 220VAC output, not high frequency. For US and other countries, 60 Hz with 120V or 240V output would be suitable.

    I wonder who will be the first to build it and test it? You'll have to try hard if you want to catch me, I have quite a head start....

    transmitting / receiving / storage


    the first two requirement is easy to accomplish through a resonating LC circuit ,



    in the above system scalar energy portion can be found inside the capacitor , if we want to take the scalar energy to achieve a unity or a very high efficiency we need another coil connected in serial with this capacitor as a kind of conversation .. the problem in this case is you have to break the resonating LC circuit to achieve this !!!

    Hello med.3012,

    Simply love that Gif Animation!!, THANKS!!

    Now:

    Well, related to the energy inside cap...yes, you are right...but if we want to use the B Field changes...We could leave the LC Tank Circuit completely INTACT (not braking it)...if We just conduct a PULSED (Simple Square Wave for Instance) Electromagnetic Induction (As an example) in order to excite the LC Tank COIL...with a PARALLEL COIL like I show below:

    [IMG][/IMG]

    When Pulse is Positive (Energized) at GREEN COIL, it ASSISTS the LC Tank as shown...therefore a "Upward" B-Field would be projected, charging Cap as shown.

    When GREEN COIL is OFF, then LC Tank would use the reverse spike from the GREEN COIL COLLAPSING FIELD, to ASSIST in its REVERSE B-FIELD [Downward B-Field] (just like it does when Cap reverses polarity to the one shown on my image)...

    I have been using this EXCITING FIELD approach for my Generators...and it happens that the LC Tank is the one supplying MAJORITY of its Energy-Power when secondaries are loaded...while Green Coil is not even disturbed...


    Hope this helps you...and others.

If we put a similar Transformer In the "Conventional" side of the circuit.. would we get the same the output?.. a theory from a theory worth experimenting.. to find out..
    Aha! Someone was paying attention in class! It's easy enough to try it and find out what happens, right? It only took me a couple of hours to throw together some existing parts....

    Yess I am interested in a video presentation and maybe do some experiments.

    hello !

    thanks for your support, a video is good since we could keep the idea in one place and it's better to organize our work in this forum to free more area for tswift's radiant energy school .
