Proposed Experiment on Non-Faraday Induction (No field lines being crossed)


Does anyone still have their Romerouk motor (Supposed Muller replication) ?

I haven't found mine and wish to do the following:

1. Remove all of the windings and any circuitry.
2. Make a single conductor wire loop to be fixed around the diameter of the rotor. That loop must be equal distance to all magnets and centered on the 'equatorial' mid-point of the magnet. The loop is to remain stationary.
3. Close the loop with an axial resistor with very low (<1 Ohm) resistance placed where the loop is open so the loop circuit path does not change direction (the resistor should be in-line with the wire -or- the current should continue in a nice circular path).
4. Scope across that resistor while spinning the rotor.

It is assumed that all magnets on the rotor have the same polarities facing perpendicular to the wire loop.

I suspect a sizable DC current will be produced through that resistor. If so, that wire may become a bit warm.

If not difficult, alternate the polarities of the magnets.

Repeat and expect an AC loop current.

The above was intended to be part of my Displacement current magnetic field experiments. The fields in the above (DC version) should be the same as using the Romerouk rotor.

In the mean time, I'll continue to look for my rotor with magnets.


Matt Watts:
So if this indeed works, won't it pretty much prove the SM TPU technique at work under all the electrical tape?

Essentially you are pushing a DC current through a winding -- same as squeezing a hose filled with liquid.

Whatever it is moving in the copper loop, forced around in circles by the magnets must then be the constituents of DC electrical current.

That sound about right?

I like this experiment WW.  Results either way narrows the resulting ball field by half.

Near relativistic velocities may be required to result in something useful.

I think there is a lot more to the TPU beyond just encircling a conductor with the right magnetic field.

One thing should be certain. Passing a magnetic field along the length of a wire, even without cutting fields lines, should make it heat up from the eddy currents, alone.

That could be one question answered.
