Yes I am planning exactly the early unit. I really want to build something a little less lethal, say 3-5KW, not 160KW capable. I saw him describe a 2KW system for a vending machine & refrigeration unit in Japan. I am thinking the capacitor bank just needs downsized a bit.
Concerning the last video posted, I am fairly sure it is the earlier device, identical to the picture posted here, which he started explaining at about the 30m mark. He is just isolating the L1 at 37m.
WOW, if I may suggest: "Little Steps for Little Feet" Start at the start and work forward. Compare what we have talked about already, learn what the requirements are, study, first.
Since I am confusing things with my questions in the previous post, let me ask simply to make sure we understand things,
Would you agree that the L2 of his early system is a Bucking Coil?
I am a firm believer in hard facts. Perhaps the following snippet, applying the Right Hand Grip Rule, will answer:
I also think the last video I posted, with the Looped Cord, wrapped around Don's arm answers this question. Don does say several times, mentions "Generators" and how the Fields oppose.
I have found another description of a build on-line for a 2kw system. I have tried to clean it up with some additional explanations I have added. It has a nice parts list and explains power transmission on the L2 nicely, but it looks like the 160kw early system. I am going to try to attach it and my original document also for readers.
I want to make this a grid-tie system. So the question is how to get from ~8000vdc to 12-48vdc. I am thinking I should not rectify it, but maybe step down the AC voltage first with a transformer, just keep stepping it down until I get it within range for a particular grid-tie inverter.
I would stick to the known facts, not diverge at all, go with what you know to be true.
Then apply known laws of Electromagnetic Induction and expand that just a little.
Chris, do you think I could insert a step-down operation without breaking the circuit? or maybe not going 4:1 but maybe 3:1, after all I only want 3-5KW.
Again, I would not change a thing. Keep everything the same. Throw a bunch of incandescent Bulbs on the end like in the Videos.
I was late to the table with Don Smith. I did not intensely study until well after all my research with Floyd Sweet. I spent a long time proving things wrong, chasing red hearings, and in the end spending a lot of money where I did not need to.
What happened to me? Over night I evolved. It clicked, my small, basic very simple experiments paid off. I learnt about Electromagnetic Induction, carrying a Magnet and Coil around all the time while in the Lab, the coil was always short circuited, and always the coil would expel the Magnet, always appearing to be a greater Magnetic Field from the Coil than from the Magnet. But why?
Time Rate of Change.
Don Smith is spot on! On occasion he may not give the best information, perhaps he did not like the other person. But Don's basic layout and how it all works is spot on! We have proof, we can experiment on the bench and prove what he says to be true. It may not always be easy, but it does work as stated. The Mr Preva Experiment proves what Don says to be true, Floyd Sweet proves Don to be true.
Primary, 4 Turns, Secondary 17 Turns, then Centre Tapped, and Tertiary another 17 Turns, the Tertiary opposes the Secondary, the Secondary Opposes the Primary and the Tertiary assists the Primary, so: 1 + -1 + 1 = 1
What's the End Goal:
- Amplify Voltage
- Amplify Current
We do know how to do it, the very simple steps are laid out. Its just a case of following the guide. Lay out the Plan and stick to it.
