working free energy machine

Attention all of you back yard mechanics,,,
I did an experiment, where I let my electric wheelchair become a free energy device
where I gained the power to go an additional 20 feet up a pretty steep hill,
each time I travel up the hill at full speed, and back then down the hill slowly.
I repeated this test 3 time, gaining a total of 60 feet before stopping the test
Then I repeated the test a few days later, gaining the same 60 feet
This was proof to me, that we have discovered a way of gaining free energy
I also made drawings of how to build a stand-alone mechanism
That I believe should be a way of gaining free energy power supplies

...

I don't get this. Are you saying you went up 20 feet, then coasted down, then went up 40 feet, and coasted down again, and then went up, etc. ? With the battery not losing any charge? As if the battery has enough power capacity I don't see anything Randi-worthy going on here.

Hi Joe.

I googled as you suggested. It doesn't look like you were able to convince people on that free energy forum, despite posting your message multiple times.

Over here, you're more likely to find people who point out that the energy you can harvest by rolling down a hill is not greater then the energy you exert in driving up it in the first place. Still, welcome to the forum.

Regenerative braking, presumably.

Not clear which part is supposed to be over 100% efficient yet, but have a sinking feeling it's just the high gear/low gear bit.

<edit to add> Joe, if that worked, people with electric cars could charge their batteries just by alternately accelerating in one gear then braking in another gear. I think you need to do some basic reading on how electric motors and generators behave first.

First of all, welcome to the forums.

You know what would be really helpful? Could you post a link to a video of your magnetic motor in full operation. That why we'd all understand you have a serious claim--one worthy of the $1,000,000 prize--and that you are not simply trying to hawk your $200 CAD drawings for something that doesn't work at all.

Oooooh. I just love free energy machines, especially the really clever ones.

Presumably the site you want us to look at is: http://free-energy.yolasite.com

But I've noticed that in addition to this forum, you seem to also have posted it to these....

http://www.godlikeproductions.com/fo...age2103527/pg1

And many more.

Somehow, I doubt you'll have the time to pay much attention to the replies in this forum, but I'll give your machine a fair assessment anyway.

From your webpage:
Quote:
It is easy enough to build, as all you need is a twelve volt battery, two 12 Volt motors, one large pulley, at least one small pulley, a belt that fits the pulleys, and the hardware to put these parts together.(nuts + bolts + framing to mount on)



((along with electronics, such as wires and a bridge rectifier and a voltage regulator,))

((all of which could be easily built on a simple proto-board)

(you might even be able to use any voltage motors - even 120 Volt



It is a very simple mechanism in its workings, as you put power into the motor with the big pulley attached, and you take power out from the motor-(generator) with the small pulley attached. The output motor, or several motors even, the one(s) with the small pulley attached, rotates a lot faster,(more rotations per second) than your input motor. There is a belt connecting the two,(or more) motors together, that can be as small as you want, depending on if you required size constraints, or as large as you want, to accommodate multiple output generators,,, like in our petrol fuelled power stations. I cannot be sure, without having results from tests, but I think that we can gain more power, with every generator that you add with a small pulley.
Link to the diagram on the website: http://free-energy.yolasite.com/reso...machine%29.jpg

Very disappointing. There's clearly no way this can work.

The simplest explanation for why it won't work that I can give you (and there are multiple explanations to choose from), it's because the large pulley will impart much greater speed, but far less torque onto the small pulley. As soon as you add load to the small pulley (by drawing power from the AC generator to power the DC motor), there won't be enough torque to turn the small pulley anymore, and the whole thing will stop turning.

ahhh, it's the old "big wheel turns faster and over a longer distance than small pulley hence generating more energy than it uses!!!!" gag.

Problem is, energy doesn't work that way. eventually, it won't be able to turn the wheel "as stated above" and eventually the battery will truly die and it will all come to dead stop.

Have you tested it with no battery in place?

I could get into the law of diminishing returns too (how a wheel twice as large doesn't generate twice as much energy) but that would be overkill

The claim on the Free Energy Forum is that he went up the hill until it stopped (e.g. "dead battery") and then went down the hill in low gear and when he turned around and went back up again, he got 20 feet more distance than he got when doing it on battery power.

I'm no engineer, but I'd say it's pretty obvious - the battery was low to start with.

The fact that he got 20 feet farther the first time, and the same each of the other two attempts (total of 60 feet he says), would say that the machine stores X amount of energy and that happens to be 20' + what was on the original battery charge.

Joe, why don't you run your chair down the switchbacks in the Alps. Some of those are a total of 15/20 km, all downhill. If you really get more energy, you should be able to drive your chair to Paris. It won't happen, though. The clue is that you got the same +20 the first, second and third times. It's the same amount of energy, not more, on try 2 and try 3.

I have observed that people working in proximity to prototype free energy devices appear to lose the capacity to write concisely. (Does this effect yet have a name, or any proposed mechanism?)

We should be alarmed by this. Should not such work be halted until it can be established how to protect experimenters? Roentgen and Curie managed to dose themselves with high levels of radiation without apprehending the danger.

Have we established yet that the inability to write concisely is not a pre-existing condition? Their inability to write concisely may be a symptom of a condition that renders them more likely to work in proximity to prototype free energy devices in the first place.

I appreciate that Mr. Warrior has included safety warnings on his site, including:

"If this system is allowed to run freely,
without having any outside drain of power,
this system will overcharge itself,
and may even explode."

Which is at once a valuable tip to follow when operating any overunity or perpetual motion or free energy harvesting machine and some bitching free verse.

It would be better as:

If the system's allowed to run freely
Without some sort of braking-type dealy
Its battery load
Will surely explode
Which I guarantee you will feely.

A battery that is hot after high usage may appear to be dead, but after cooling down it can have a lot of charge. This happens all the time with cordless power tools. I suspect something like this. "Dead battery" is not an accurate way to measure energy use.

It pretty much goes without saying that the "free" energy the OP thinks he is getting is coming from the wheelchair's battery and, ultimately from the wall socket.

The electric wheelchairs that I have seen (a very small sample to be sure) do not have multi-ratio transmissions. They have a speed control that I'm pretty sure works by changing the voltage supplied to the motor, possibly simply with resistors, possibly by using more sophisticated electronics to do it with less loss than a simple resistor.

Here is what I think might really be happening.: OP runs his wheelchair uphill at full power until the motor get's hot enough to trip the thermal overload that is probably there to keep the motor from burning out. He then coasts it downhill at minimum power, allowing the motor to cool off enough to allow him to climb the hill a little farther.

Alternatively, if the OP really conducting his experiment with a low battery (which he does not make clear), heat, battery polarization or some other anomaly is making the chair stop before the battery is completely discharged.

In any event, it's safe to say that if he repeats his poorly designed experiment enough times, he will end up stuck at the bottom of the hill with a dead battery.

O f course that is exactly what you would expect a shill for Big Oil to say in order to suppress da twoof about free energy.

Thanks. Great link. It reminds of my time as an amateur scientist when I tried to figure out why Gyro Gearloose's devices did not work. I retired from amateur science at around age 12, having concluded free energy devices are as likely to work out long term as the Beagle Boys' plans.

I don't think he's selling anything. I think he genuinely believes that he's stumbled onto something that will benefit all humanity, and so he's spamming for the greater good.

Cordless power tool batteries are thermally protected by a thermistor. It's simply a temperature controlled breaker that opens the circuit at a specified temperature that is low enough to not actually damage the battery. If a battery is genuinely overheated, its life can be severely shortened.

No, you didn't.

That's probably the main cause, but even with a battery that's not overheated, just drained, waiting a few seconds will give you another few seconds of use, and this can be repeated ten times or so. At least, that works with NiCad batteries.

Match that efficiency !!!
That's nothing. I've turned a series of QPs into a 300 pound fat ass.

more reasoning for this free energy device

here I try to explain why this Miricle works
sorry for the length of this response
but there are an aweful lot of reasoning that I try to explain
this is a compilation of many answers that I have tried to explain

Subject: free energy from the Bible

ATTENTION all of you back yard mechanics,,,

I did an experiment, where I let my electric wheelchair act as a free energy device
where I gained the power to go an additional 20 feet up a pretty steep hill
each time I travel up the hill at maximum speed, (10th gear)
and then back down the hill at a slow speed, (1st gear)
I repeated this test 3 time, gaining a total of 60 feet before stopping the test
Then I repeated the test a few days later, gaining the same 60 feet
This was proof to me, that we have discovered a way of gaining free energy

Being more verbose doesn't make you any less wrong.

GEM = God's Energy Machine = Gift from God

Sorry, but I don’t believe that this is anything like a hooker
From any nation, continent or race
This is a gift from God
Evil forces have no doubt been battling to keep this hidden
For who knows how long, probably since electricity has been discovered
This is so simple it seems too simple too work
But it does work, and it works very well
You are using the change in size of pulleys
To multiply the amount of rotations
This is significant with electricity
As more rotations usually equals more power with electric motors/generators

I gave a collection of my answers to others earlier

we need to get this info out to the Tribulation Saints
I have a working free energy device in my house
it is my electric wheelchair, or any electric wheelchair
that has the drive gear settings changed
to max torque,(1st gear)
+ max speed,(10th gear)
