An Evaluation Of Nbs Testing

I have been asked whether the recent N.B.S. tests alter the opinions I've expressed before and I'm repeating here today. The recent N.B.S. tests don't alter my opinion because N.B.S. failed to test Newman's device.

I have read and evaluated the Newman motor test results reported by R. E. Hebner, G. N. Stenbakken, and D. L. Hillhouse in National Bureau of Standards Report #NBSIR 86-3405. [See "Report of Tests on Joseph Newman's Device," U.S. Dept. of Commerce, dated June 26, 1986, hereinafter referred to as "the NBS Rpt. at_".]

Measurements

While the reporters display fine credentials and demonstrate li.e use of precision equipment, they obviously did not test the Newman motor. Instead they measured the power consumed in resistors placed in parallel with the Newman motor, and called this power the motor output. [See NBS Rpt. at 7. Fig. 4. "Schematic Drawing of Newman device and input and output power measurements circuits," reproduced with comments plainly referring to the "Resistors" as such in the accompanying chart.]

In layman's terms, this is equivalent to stating that the output of an electric motor plugged into a wall socket is given by the power used by a lightbulb in the next room which is on the same circuit. The measurement of power consumed by these parallel resistors is clearly irrelevant to the efficiency of the Newman motor.

The actual input power to the Newman Motor (battery input minus power consumed by their resistors) is referred to in the report as "internal losses." No attempt was made to measure the mechanical output of the Newman motor. Nor was any measurement made of heat generated in the motor windings.

B. The Additional Energy N.B.S.

Lost From The System

It has been demonstrated by myself and others that much of the excess energy generated in the Newman machine occurs at very high frequencies (in particular between 10 and 20 MHz). It has also been demonstrated that the high frequency current will flow to the ground if given the opportunity. If Newman's machine is grounded through a high resistance, heat will be produced in the resistor which represents an additional motor output. In the N.B.S. testing, the Newman motor was connected directly to ground, thus eliminating the excess r.f. power from the system [See NBS Rpt. at 7 (Fig. 4.) "Schematic Drawing of Newman device and input and output power measurement circuits," reproduced with comments plainly referring to the "Ground" as such in the accompanying chart.] The report states that "the power flow in the device is primarily a low frequency phenomena." This result was guaranteed by the test set up. Again, the oscillographs shown on page 3 of the report show clean low frequency waveforms. All oscilloscope waveforms which I have observed on Newman motors which are properly connected, have by contrast been dominated by extremely large high frequency components.

C. Conclusion

In conclusion, the N.B.S. failed to measure the output of the Newman motor, and instead measured the output of parallel resistors. In addition, the primary r.f. energy generated by the machine was shunted to ground. Their measurements are therefore irrelevant to the actual functioning of the Newman device. These results reflect a total lack of communication between the N.B.S. and Newman or any other expert on Newman's technology. Considering the importance of Newman's machine and its potential applications, this waste of N.B.S. resources and misrepresentation of Newman's device is an insult to those seriously interested in the machine and to those who may benefit by its future applications.

Preliminary Analysis of Newman Machines

Abstract

The essential efficiency mechanism within Newman Machines are the motions of flux lines either perpendicular or opposite to the rotation direction of a permanent magnet. Traditional equal and opposite CEMF (counter electromotive force) losses are circumvented, and the permanent magnet is made to perform work via inductive interaction.

General Description

FIGURE 1 shows the basic components of a Newman Machine, consisting of a stationary conducting coil, a rotating permanent magnet, and a commutator which rotates with the magnet.

About 24-28 times per 360° of magnet rotation, the commutator alternately switches drive current from a battery to the coil, then disconnects the drive current and series-connects the coil to an electrical load. The switching takes place rapidly, as a spark jumps across the commutator gaps for each switching event. The commutator also reverses the direction of the drive current to the coil every 180° rotation.

The sequence of events within the device are:

1. Energy, in the form of electric current from a battery, is supplied to the coil. As a result, one would expect:

a. Part of the input energy is invested in a magnetic field which forms around the current flowing within the windings of the coil: and b.Part of the input energy is invested in the rotation of the magnet, as a result of the interaction between the permanent magnet and the field around the coil.

2. Electric current from the battery to the coil ceases. The coil is immediately connected to a series electrical load. One result is that:

a. Part of the input energy, stored in the coil magnet field, is delivered through the electrical load as the magnetic field collapses.

If one considers only the induction action of flux lines rotating with the permanent magnet, one would expect that:

b. The remaining part of the input energy, invested in magnet rotation, induces a current in the coil, which gives rise to an equal and opposite magnetic field around the coil that directly opposes the rotation of the magnet.

The above results, however, do not reflect perpendicular or opposite motions of the permanent magnet flux lines relative to the coil windings. These flux motions are shown schematically in FIGURES 2-4.

in FIGURE 2, a permanent magnet, 1, is free to rotate around pivot 2, under the influence of a coil of wire, 3. In these figures, a single conductor of the coil is shown for simplicity, but in practice many windings are used. The permanent magnet's lines of flux are shown in FIGURE 1 by curved arrow-lines, 4. In FIGURE 1, no field is shown around.winding 3, as no current is flowing in the winding.

In FIGURE 3, the magnet is shown during the first 90° of rotation, with a drive current flowing through the winding that generates a magnetic field around the winding, as shown by arrow-lines 5.

This winding field is of the same magnetic polarity as the magnet, and causes the magnet to rotate due to mutual magnetic repulsion. This mutual repulsion also causes the magnetic flux lines of the permanent magnet to be pushed inward and rotated forward of the magnet as shown. The forward displacement exists because the energy transfer between the drive current and the rotating magnet is impeded by the moment of inertia of the magnet. The inertial mass cannot respond to instantaneous drive current changes, so not all the electrical input energy is effectively transformed and stored as kinetic energy of rotation.Con-trarily, the magnetic flux lines of the magnet are displaced instantly by instananeous changes of the same drive current, and therefore act as an energy storage means for that portion of the input energy which causes the deformation.

If the drive current to the coil suddenly ceases (as it does in Newman Machines), the magnetic flux lines of permanent magnet expand outward and rearward to their original shape, releasing the energy stored during their deformation.

The outward perpendicular expansion of the flux lines induces current in the winding as the flux lines cut across the conductors. The induced current is in a direction which magnetically opposes the advancing field of the permanent magnet; that is, the perpendicularly induced current is in the same direction as the original drive current.

In FIGURE 4, the magnet is shown during the second 90° of rotation, with a drive current as above passing through the winding.

In this quadrant, the winding field is opposite to the polarity of the permanent magnet, and causes the magnet to rotate by magnetic attraction. This mutual attraction causes the magnetic flux lines of the permanent magnet to be pulled outward and rotated forward of the magnet, as shown by arrow-lines 6. This stretching of the field again acts as an energy storage means for that portion of the input energy which causes the stretching.

If the drive current to the winding suddenly ceases (as in Newman Machines), the magnetic flux lines of the permanent magnet retract inward and rearward to their original shape, releasing the energy stored during their deformation.

The inward perpendicular retraction of the flux lines induces current in the winding as the flux lines cut across the conductors. The induced current is in a direction which magnetically attracts the receeding field of the permanent magnet; that is, the perpendicularly induced current is, again, in the same direction as the original drive current.

The cycle is repeated for the third and fourth 90° quadrants of rotation, only with the drive current direction reversed.

Joe Newman 's Philosophy: 'If It Can Y Be Done, It Interests Me.'

Joe Newman

A great thinker is seldom a disputant. He answers other men 's arguments by stating the truth as he sees it.

Joseph Newman is an original thinker who has the ability to visualize the mechanical essence of what he evaluates.

For the past 23 years, he has made his living by inventing. He holds eight patents for inventions which include plastic-covered barbell sets, a mechanical orange picker, a bike that does "wheelies," a knife that always lands point forward, and a new type of automobile rain-deflector.

Joe's formal education ended after his junior year of college so that he could pursue his true love — inventing. He did, however, continue to use his own brains and books to teach himself physics, chemistry, astronomy, and other areas of science.

At one point, Joe began to study the experiments and writings of the famous English scientist Michael Faraday, whose ideas led to the development of the modern electrical generator. Following 15 years of independent study, Joe explained his theory in a 133-page document which described a new technical process for understanding and utilizing a source of unlimited energy.

According to previously written statements, the Newman energy generator (its formal name) works successfully because "all mass is made up of electromagnetic energy, and if the proper, mechanically-designed mechanism is built, one can change mass into pure electrical energy and/or rotational motion in a 100-percent conversion process." His three operational prototypes — one small, one medium in size, and a third weighing over 5,000 pounds with a 600-pound rotating magnet — have already been constructed. He built the three machines several years ago in his workshop, and he repeatedly emphasizes that he developed his conceptual theory over a period of 15 years before building the first physical prototype.

Jue Newman sayb thai his invention is far more efficient than conventional nuclear energy and doesn't release any harmful radiation. He also says that his invention will replace all other forms of energy. It will be utilized in the home, by industry, and to produce commercial electrical energy at a small fraction of today's cost.

More than 30 competent physicists, electrical engineers, and technical individuals have signed Affidavits which state that Joseph Newman's invention does what he says it does: the external energy output exceeds the external, electrical energy input. This additional energy output is the result of the internal, magnetic energy within Joe's invention being converted to electrical energy. [This process is described in this book.]

Those who have signed the Affidavits include Milton Everett (biomass energy specialist from the Mississippi Department of Energy and Transportation), Mike Meatyard (electrical engineer for the Alabama Corps of Engineers), Eike Mueller (European Space Agency mission coordinator with NASA), and Dr. Roger Hastings (a principal physicist for Sperry-Univac, Inc., St. Paul, Minnesota).

In his endorsement, Dr. Roger Hastings writes: "To date we have been pouring huge funds into nuclear fusion in search of this dream. It appears that Mr. Newman has found the solution on a scale which will allow immediate and economically reliable development."

As Joe Newman says, "The finished prototype of what I teach will change the world drastically for the good of mankind, more so than any invention before this time."

For the first time in our history, this book — THE ENERGY MACHINE OF JOSEPH NEWMAN — discloses the principles and technology required to create a totally new method of energy generation via "an invention whose time has come."
