Well half a dozen beers and a Chinese take a way .. life is blessed!
Don’t panic there is nothing unexpected . What you are seeing is just what I did.
If it was as simple as throwing a capacitor in front of a battery every one would have had free energy long long ago. Folks have been charging batteries like that for a 100 years if not more.
I asked you not to get your hopes up prematurely and explained that this was a strong indication of what is required . And its proved so. I needed your help and attention with this hypothoses that is just a step forward to show that 'there is something of merit' worthy of your time and trouble, (which I thank you very much for ). I would like you to think this ' If this thing works I want to know how and why it works I want to be able to engineer it'
There is no point trying to build something that isn't understood at all ! You have seen that it can work, that it might be possible thats all ! Ready to move on ? >>>>
Tptb are well aware of the situation it is my belief lead acid batteries have been altered over the years and as you are discovering its extremely difficult to hold any battery on its resonant point .
I need help with that myself because I don’t know how to write a control loop. Anyway regadless
AC and others are questioning resonance quite right . Do you recall I said the subject was taught differently to each trade? I didn't mean wrongly just differently? The technologies have been intentionally split in order to prevent the dots being easily joined together. Effectively 'a need to know basis' consider this … ask any electrician what a capacitor does in a circuit the reply will instantly be “It causes a 90deg phase shift” ask any electronics guy what a 90 deg phase shift causes
the reply instantly will be resonance. Ask any radio guy if a capacitor means its at resonance he'll think your a lunatic ! They are taught a much deeper understanding of what resonance is, 'Its need to know' and its a bit they need to know better than other trades to tune an antenna's. amoungst other things.
Your quite bright boys and girls does it sound right to you if I expand that 90deg stuff your watching and say “a capacitor of any size in any circuit will make it resonant “ Its outrageous put like that but really all electricians need is basic theory so they know how to phase shift for motors and understand basic power factor its sufficient for what’s required of them! (need to know)
Its all they are taught and perhaps you reading this too !
Lets move that a rung up the ladder , when using this circuit how were you checking for resonance?
With your oscilloscope of course you can see a 90 deg phase shift, The books say there should be a 90 deg phase shift, you expect a 90 deg phase shift But here's the big question and one that carries us from one trade skill set to another … Is that actually resonance
To massage your thoughts what your looking at on the oscilloscope has little relationship to whats actually happening. I afraid its another case of a measurists tool that isn't 'fit for purpose' compounded by the idea that a 90 deg phase shift means resonance. Nothing remotely like!!
I try to show you just a little something of my Hypothesis and it does what I said it would .
Then it stopped. I knew it would , If it was a radio (and it is in a way)I would tell you its drifted off tune.
I hope there's a radio ham reading this who might like to answer this simple question in a way that would advance everyone why are linear amps very expensivoue compared to other amps?
Its my guess there would be fewer HT grid guys reading this. And of course the very last thing they want is resonance In fact the opposite but the composition of 'dirty power' also has a big part to play . This term 'Resonance' we need to all understand more about it. And understand each other
The use of a capacitor is ' In the ball park' and it give's an indication but its nothing.. nothing at all like what I see as true resonance
Kind regards Duncan
