In this post we'll learn a simple manipulative technique which allows a user to channelize gravitational force into a work force which can be used for illuminating an LED lamp and for charging a battery. The idea was suggested by Mr. Pritam Bhowmik.
Recently, the idea of using gravitational force for illuminating an LED has gained a huge amount of popularity, and quite a few companies can be seen encashing on this by selling equipment designed for generating electricity just by hanging a load and allowing gravity to do all the hard work, the result being pure free electricity.....looks too good isn't it, but everything that appears to be too good = = FAKE.
Having said that, the idea definitely has the potentials of providing electricity however the "name" of the design needs to be changed to "Human Force free LED lamp" instead of gravity lamp, because although the gravity would be doing all the work of keeping the suspended load under pressure for implementing the intended results, for hoisting the load back to top repeatedly would require human energy which is by no means free, .....yet still with little thinking and a smart innovation the whole concept of making a gravity lamp circuit can be made feasible. The following discussion will make it clearer.
Basically, it's the first law of Thermodynamics that restricts the possibility of any perpetual or "free energy" concept to become successful, according to this law a particular form of energy can only be transformed to another form of energy, but energy can never be created.
No matter how strict the above law my be, it never stops anybody from making efficient machines or enhanced machines for achieving highly efficient conversion of energy from one form to the other desired form.
A couple of such manipulated overunity concepts (developed by me) can be studied in the following links:
Returning to the proposed gravity LED lamp circuit, the idea can be implemented by employing the following simple set up.
The idea looks pretty simple, in the set up image above we can see two pulleys (enhanced with ball bearing) on the top, and a generator motor at the bottom center.
We can also see a relatively large wheel with a lever handle mechanism on the left hand side of the set up, while on the right side a suspended heavy load.
All the above mechanisms are linked up with a rope, such that the mechanism becomes operational as explained below:
The idea here is to rotate the wheel handle with manual force in order to pull the heavy load upwards until it reaches the maximum height achievable, then release the wheel so that the load can now fall down freely due to the action of gravitational force.
While this happens the motor being a part of the pulley system also gets rotated and begins generating effective electricity for either charging an attached battery or illuminating an LED.
The switch SW1 plays an important role in the whole system, this switch should be in the OFF position while hoisting the load upwards, and in ON position before the wheel handle is about to be set free by the user.
This is important because with SW1 in switched OFF position the motor spindle acts like an ordinary freely moving easy to rotate pulley, and offers minimal resistance to the person hoisting the load, and as soon as SW1 is closed the motor gets loaded, and offers much higher resistance while moving. Thus the suspended load now gets influenced by the loaded motor and instead of falling down freely moves relatively at a slower pace towards the ground and the gravitational has do apply an equivalent amount of work force for generating electricity from the motor.
This is obviously just an example which shows how a relatively lower input force can be used for achieving much higher levels of output power, through a very ordinary and easy to implement mechanism.
The wheel handle mechanism can be replaced with other forms of mechanisms that may be capable of producing even higher efficiencies for the same. Some of the examples are a 4 pulley/chain mechanism, screw jack mechanism etc.
The load on the motor should be optimally calculated so that the gravity load comes down at a much slower pace, or the height of the upper pulleys may be extended to higher points for inducing a sluggish unwinding procedure by the load.
The motor for this gravity LEd lamp circuit could be an ordinary permanent magnet motor, a stepper motor or geared type of electromagnet motor.
