Other Notes and Observations

• With a confined circuit configuration, the unit would generally charge the cap as high as 75vdc with a 12 volt supply, but amperage reading never exceeded 1.2 (see below)

• Amperage would decline with increasing voltage, but 45-50v at 1 amp was the median across the cap in the isolated circuit.

• The coils could be connected in reversed-series, but capacitor voltage failed to exceed 40 volts in a timely manner with any but the final arrangement.

• The above 3 tests were all unloaded and used a modified circuit. A clamping diode directly across the load apparently did no harm but no extraordinary benefit could be concluded.

• Various diode and capacitor arrangements across the ac/dc leads of the full wave bridge rectifier were also tried but were either detrimental or of no obvious benefit.

• An increase in motor rpm during operation was occasionally noted, the cause of which is undetermined. The increase would generally be sustained for 10-15 minutes, but this increase was not observed at all during 1 test.

• A crude manual arrangement was used to pulse the cap.

• Incorporation of solid state momentary PB and/or sensing/timing strategies is discretionary - if not advised. Of course, this will alter the net efficiency for better or worse.

• Drop across the battery terminals during pulse is nominal. (<.1 W)

• Resistance of the series connected coils is approximately 10 ohms.

• Substitution of the device with a small step-up transformer produced 60v @ 20ma across the cap which rapidly dissipated, while use of the device typically yields 40-50v @ 2.5-3 amps and amps hold steady.

• The cap normally showed a 20v drop at shutoff with amps steady, implying that the arrangement is still grossly inefficient versus dissipated potential, an element which needs to be addressed.

• Although the margin of error is large, the results so far are enough to suggest an operational gain.

The unit charges the cap most efficiently with a 9v supply, less efficiently with a 6v supply, and least efficiently with a 12 volt and 18 volt supply. The above figures were determined with the device unloaded, so loaded results may vary.
