In our last discussion we understood the naturally attributed overunity feature of a flywheel, and learned how it can be used like an efficient machine for generating free electricity with the help of a frequently applied external minimal sustaining force to it.
However, in order to transform the flywheel into a free electricity generator and
almost perpetual, and automatic without the requirement of any manual
intervention, the following shown smart idea can be incorporated.
If the explanation provided in Wikipedia is believed to be correct, then the above design should work as per the proposed overunity concept here.
In the design above we can see an appropriately calculated flywheel, motor, and a battery circuit set up.
The figure shows the top view of the flywheel, the attached motor being right under the flywheel, shown in a pixelated form.
motor wires are connected to a battery which needs to be charged, via a
blocking rectifier diode (1N5408). This diode makes sure that the
voltage from the battery remains blocked while the energy from the motor
is allowed to reach the battery.
A PNP transistor network can also be witnessed, whose base is configured with a reed switch.
The reed switch is supposed to be activated through an embedded magnet sealed at the edge of the flywheel.
the switch connected in series with the negative wire is kept toggled
off, and the flywheel is given is tight rotational spin (torque)
manually or with any desired external means.
A soon as this is executed, the switch is immediately toggled ON.
the flywheel dimension is assumed to be significantly large such that
the "switch ON" action (battery connected) inflicts only a minor
resistance to the torque of the flywheel.
Once the above action is initiated, the motor instantly begins generating and supplying electricity to the battery.
Also in the course of its rotational cycle, the magnet attached with the flywheel edge begins switching the corresponding reed switch intermittently.
The reed switch in turn switches the PNP
transistor at the same rate creating momentary short across the 1N5408 diode so
that during these instants the battery power is reverted to the motor for
applying back the required sustaining torque to it.
The 2200uF capacitor further aids to this and reduces the load on the battery each time the transistor switches ON.
since the reed switch is toggled only for a fraction of time of each
complete rotation from the flywheel, except for these periods, the rest
of the rotational length of period is used for generating free extra
electricity for the battery.
It implies that while the
flywheel is rotating only a fractional energy from the battery is used
for sustaining its optimal torque, while a significantly large amount of
its energy is transferred to the motor for generating an equivalent
amount of charging current for the battery.
The above explained scenario ensures a perfect self-sustaining flywheel system which becomes capable of generating free electricity in excess tow hat is being used as its sustaining input.
2200uF capacitor may be increased to some higher value and if possible
super capacitors can be tried for further enhancing the efficiency of
Feedback from Mr. Mark Baiamonte, one of the interested members of this blog:
have been fooling atound with a windmill and got it to work but not
enough wind. You plans are excellent and i would love to try it. Here is
flywheel circuit, because the motor would need a 3 phase to single phase
DC conversion and a DC to 3 phase reception from the transistor...
motor from a treadmill. What the biggest size capacitor i could use?
Thank you very much. This is the first thing i made like this. I enjoyed
it very much. Only sorry i didn't start fooling around with this kind of
stuff at a younger age. Thank you again for your design and your time.
That's great Mark, thanks for updating the info.
The capacitor value is not critical, however bigger values might help to
increase the efficiency of the system, so you could try adding a a couple
of more 2200uF in parallel.
