Perpetual Motion – Gravity Powered Generator
Certainly, you’ve heard and read a lot about the topic. Mass media is flooded with all kind of experts announcing their recycled discoveries. As a reasonable person you probably getting suspicious, is it a real thing or another sham-wow?
I will leave you to make your own opinion. Basic description of the machine is published below. You won’t find there anything like “it’s complicated”, “you won’t understand” or “it’s classified”. At first explanation looks confusing but it’s pretty straightforward and hopefully will satisfy your curiosity.
What is the difference between this invention and existing power suppliers?
Wind and Solar generators dependent on weather, they will never become reliable. Hydro Energy contrary is extremely reliable but reached its limit – we cannot build more dams. About nuclear energy - first thing comes to my mind - time bomb.
Au contraire, Gravity Powered Generator does not produce any harmful emission; it can be installed in your basement, no need for ugly transmission lines. It works on Earth will work on Mars; gravitational field on the moon probably is not strong enough.
Do we have a prototype?
Yes we do, located on premises in Montréal, Canada. It does not look as intimidating as the Large Hadron Collider, also unlike the Collider it proves - the concept works.
Can you buy this generator for your home?
Since Canadian government refused to patent this invention further development stopped - it will take some more nuclear disasters like Chornobyl or Fukushima before it will heat your home.
Can it be used on road vehicles?
Yes, after a slight modification the invention will replace internal combustion engines. It will not cause CO2 (carbon dioxide aka greenhouse gas) emission or any environmental hazards. Unlike electric vehicles it will not require long recharging or immense battery.
Will this invention meet the fate of many great ideas of the past? First smeared and ridiculed, centuries later rediscovered and appreciated … Inventor has done his job but nobody was listening.
This picture will help you to envision the work cycle of the prototype. For theoretical physics explanation of this invention please visit Disproving Conservation of Energy
- weight of the balance (blue circle, 10 kg) is equal to the weight of two counterbalances (red circles, 5 kg)
- lengths of brown and blue parts of the levers are equal
- black points in the middle of the circles show their centers of mass
- black points separating brown and blue lines stand for fulcrums (pivoting points)
- shifting connection is in place between the balance (blue circle) and the levers
When the blue circle is in extreme upper or low position, the counter balances are also on their extremities, at this moment entire system is in its equilibrium and can freely rotate around the horizontal axis
For simplicity reason, let’s assume that friction is negligible. When the blue circle is at the bottom we slightly kick it upwards. As shown on the picture, leverage ratio is not equal anymore, red circles are lifting the blue one until the system regains its equilibrium but this time the blue circle gets on the top.
Because of regained equilibrium the energy required to flip the system is much lesser than the energy collected from its move, as well, we do not need induced current to do it. Let the blue circle gain some momentum and pass over equilibrium point - the system flips on its own. How to do it with minimal losses is not in the scope of this page.
Combining the balance (middle piece) with a linear generator allows gravity-into-electricity conversion.
Multiple tests run on the prototype have shown that machine does not work if at the positions of equilibrium angle between lever and horizontal (rotation) axis surpasses 30°. The heavier is the machine - the more power it produces, its efficiency varies between 17.3 % and 7.9 % (at 30° and 20° respectively). Efficiency was calculated using Newton-Leibniz formula. Theoretically the highest net efficiency of 36.3% can be reached at 45°
