(Thanks to Patrick Bailey of INE for this headsup. He recommends you
save the pages on this site. - JWD)
Based on the late Bill Mullers' work with super magnets in a
motor/generator design, this site describes Rex Hebert's ongoing
research into developing a self-running permanent magnet dynamo.
CONICAL WINDING as described by Peter Lindermann ... at Keelynet
A unique zero resistance core design where an increase in the current
required by the load results in no resistance to the magnet motion past
the coil core, the design for a normal solenoidal coil has the wire
wound from top to bottom and as the magnet passes the coil, the
resistance to its passage increases as the load current requirements
increase (remember the old army hand cranked telephone field generator -
the more load you hook to it, the harder it is to turn the handle).
This new design has a core where the winding begins roughly 1/3 to 1/2
down the length of the core and the windings increase in turns as it
approaches the bottom of the core, taking the form of a cone with the
apex pointing up.
This is quite similar to the HomoPolar motor which does not experience
any resistance no matter how much current is extracted by the load devices.
PERPETUAL MOTION : The Inevitable Question
* How this notion haunts us all ... our primary ridicule from the
* Let me be absolutely clear on this point, this is NOT, in any way, a
Perpetual Motion Device. Thank you.
* Perpetual Motion implies eternity. Nothing manmade is eternal. Neither
will this device run forever. This is the way of all technology.
* Eventually, some component will breakdown or wear physically or fail
electrically resulting in enough down time to replace or repair the
component. Afterwards, the device may be restarted and run until the
* HOWEVER, the recent availability of affordable Rare-Earth Neodymium
Iron Boron permanent magnets brings us closer than ever to achieving
such a device.
* My main goal is to maximize energy output and RUN time and minimize
the DOWN time by minimizing energy losses wherever possible such as
heat, wear, friction, drag, vibration, etc. and by choice of materials
for extended life. The usefulness of such a device in rural or desolate
areas of the world should be obvious to anyone.
