MyE.R.S. laboratories researches, develops, and prototypes revolutionary energy conversion systems. The types of systems developed here are of (but not limited to) electromagnetic, electromechanical, and mechanical type systems.
Got your attention? Want to know more about Free Energy devices? Well... the truth is... ALL energy is FREE! That's right, you don't pay for energy. What you pay for is the cost of mining, processing, conversion, and distribution/ transmission of energy, not the energy itself. When you buy gasoline, you are paying for the cost of drilling for oil, processing it into gasoline, and distributing it to gas stations. If the price of gasoline were based on its energy, the price would not change because the energy in a gallon of gasoline is always the same no matter which reputable gas station you get it from. The cost of your car is part of the process as gasoline is not very useful (except for starting camp fires) without an engine to convert the energy to torque to move the car. When you pay the electric bill, you are paying for the cost of generating the electricity, transmitting it through power-lines, and converting it to the 120VAC 60Hz that goes into your home, not the electric energy itself. The same will happen with wind and solar power, you will pay for the cost of converting and transmitting the electric power/energy. ALL energy is free, you pay for the service of converting it to a useful form and distributing the energy to you so you can use it. Notice that converting energy is part of this free energy? That's where I come in! I enjoy inventing/developing new ways of converting energy that provide more efficiency or utility than anything that exists today. Below is some of my work that I dare to make public at this time. The High Efficiency SRM Controller and the Series Resonant Driver are methods of driving Switched Reluctance Motors to achieve very high efficiency by using the energy storage, or inductive, properties of the motor. The Magnetic Circuits page has some example concepts to encourage readers to think about ways to directly convert or control the energy of permanent magnets to perform useful work without additional electrical input. And the Inertial Propulsion page discusses my work on the concept of converting angular momentum to linear thrust and would be a totally enclosed system that would provide lift and thrust very similar to a helicopter but without the large rotating blades.
High Efficiency SRM Controller - Currently designing/prototyping a high efficiency Switched Reluctance Motor (SRM) controller that is a spin-off of the SRD system below. The new controller is being applied to a self-sustaining electric generator system to demonstrate the efficiency of the design concept. The SRM is coupled to an automotive alternator to provide self-sustaining and usable electric power. The motor for this project is an Ametek Infin-A-Tek Generation II industrial vacuum motor. It is a two phase switched reluctance motor with 4/2 topology and is 1500W. The only thing changing is the controller electronics. The new circuit uses the asymmetric half bridge topology, common for SRM controllers, with hysteretic current control and a DC link boost capacitor. The alternator is connected to a 12V motorcycle battery to excite the alternator and the output of the alternator is used to power a 1500W inverter for 120VAC, 60Hz, single phase output power. The input to the motor is 120VAC, 60Hz, single phase power.
Series Resonant Driver motor system is a revolutionary way of driving switched reluctance motors which is more efficient than conventional switched reluctance motor driver systems. The Series Resonant Driver (SRD) motor system has the performance similar to a gasoline engine and provides 2 times more range, or better, of a conventional electric motor system with the same battery pack. The SRD is designed for applications such as electric vehicles, power lawn and garden, small aircraft, and just about anything that would normally use a gasoline engine. This system takes advantage of the phase inductances in a switched reluctance motor where they are connected to capacitors to form a series resonant circuit. The system needs only to replace the switching and copper losses of the circuit, after each half-period, onto the charged capacitor. To see how this works and current status, go to the Series Resonant Driver motor system link.

Magnetic Circuits page contains a couple of the most potentially useful magnetic circuit concepts that I have tried out plus some discussion about known phenomena that I believe could be very useful. The circuits as presented here use permanent magnets, but may be more useful by using a combination of permanent magnets and electromagnets.
Inertial Propulsion system page contains a description of my work on this type of system. I discuss the designs I've tested and why they failed and what it will take to make it work.
