Goal: self-running electric car charger

Spiral Perm Magnet MotorWhat does a tech-savvy patent examiner do when he retires from government service? If he has the technical insights and passion for clean energy of my friend, Thomas Valone, Ph.D., he leaves no stone–or magnet–unturned until can build something that powers an electric car via clean energy.

Tom retired  this year; he was a patent examiner for the U.S. Patents and Trademarks Office. He notes that at the same time,  the science journal Nature and MIT Tech Review both predicted a 4 to 5 degree C rise by 2100. That mobilized him further to dust off his earlier project and get it running.

“I am going full time into the Spiral Permanent Magnet Motor project which is now a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo,” he wrote. “We need your help please.”

“Our intent is to fast-track its development and licensing so as to market a self-running, ‘on-the-go’ electric car charger within one year.”

Tom’s peer-reviewed conference paper about the motor had more than 900 reads on ResearchGate as of last week.

“This is a low cost, low risk, high payback project which uses available, off-the-shelf technology to become a self-sustaining, clean energy motor with the wonders of energy harvesting.”

  1. Hope it will be interesting. My vision and andestanding of Teslas tecnology https://cloud.mail.ru/public/JVAz/XjpXmX6Zi original in russian and translated in english https://cloud.mail.ru/public/DZkc/xuhvA1ZaZ Shortly, vision based on Teslas patent № 512340. Common Tesla transformer secondary coil consist of one layer. But in this version the secondary coil is bifilar, videlicet it consist of two layers, connected in series. Between layers we have electrical field E=U/2 . If we put capacitor (two plates with dielectric between them) in this field, we will have electric charge separation (electric induction) in it. Load mast be connected to this “internal” capacitor. There is NO magnetic coupling between coil current and load (inner capacitor) current, because they are perpendicular! So there is NO electromagnetic feedback! To better understanding Teslas patent № 512340 and Donald L. Smith With best regards, Nodir
    P.S. There is important information additionaly http://realstrannik.com/forum/proekty-i-izobreteniya-nikoly-tesla/120-more-energii-vokrug-nas-n-tesla#61068 Find out the last lifetime interview of Nikola Tesla. Written down by Alfred S. Hawle from the words of Nikola Tesla on October 28, 1942 at the New Yorker Hotel. Here the russian version http://realstrannik.com/forum/proekty-i-izobreteniya-nikoly-tesla/120-more-energii-vokrug-nas-n-tesla?start=54#63863 There is very interesting picture of a mechanical analog of his overunity devise. Here my correlation http://realstrannik.com/forum/proekty-i-izobreteniya-nikoly-tesla/120-more-energii-vokrug-nas-n-tesla?start=126#72055

  2. Thank you for the interesting comment, Nodir. Russian researchers have much knowledge to teach us.
