For anyone that has followed Eric Dollard‘s work relating to Tesla and even Eric’s relationship with Chris Carson, many are interested in the electrostatic rotary converter built by Chris but very few know anything about it.
Here is Eric Dollard’s description as far as the content or sequence of the presentation (the 4 points below):
OBJECTIVE – A completely electro-static system of electric power, that is, non electro-magnetic, and free of any magnetic currents or materials, and its application to the Tesla Turbine.
DEVELOP – A practical electrostatic machine for the generation of electric power at the kilowatt level.
DEMONSTRATE – An operating electrostatic machine for the measurement of operating characteristics.
ESTABLISH – A suitable mathematical analysis to facilitate the engineering of an electrostatic induction machine.
This presentation will show you that the genesis of this reactionless, electrical generator, is John G. Trump during the time he was at MIT and was mentored by the famous Van de Graaff. Trump’s thesis was entirely on this subject and Van de Graff turned him on to the importance of using a vacuum as a dielectric to achieve very high voltage potentials at very narrow gaps. The MIT documents show that the claims are that this generator in a vacuum and under a load is “over 99% efficient” and that with larger builds, it can “exceed those efficiencies”.
Needless to say, that should capture the interest of anyone with a heartbeat. There have been multiple developers who have patented various iterations of this kind of generator over the years and one in particular appears to be virtually identical to what Chris Carson made. Eric Dollard is analyzing the mathematics involved based on Trump’s math and some equations from the patents in order to see who might be correct according to experimental evidence.
The first half of the demonstration, I cover the background story and then the second half, Eric covers the technical aspect of this generator. I follow up with a demonstration of the Carson generator, which is the worst case scenario. It is not in a vacuum, it doesn’t even have bearings but bushings. The rotary plates are put together by press-fit instead of being keyed and the nuts holding the shaft at both ends loosen or tighten up by the vibration. It’s a miracle it even made it through the conference.
When a motor spins the out of phase capacitor plates after it is excited with a few thousand volts, a sinewave is produced on the output of a step down transformer. When power is extracted from the output, it does not diminish the electrostatic charge on the capacitor, it is created by varying the capacitance between both halves with respect to time. This is all under the umbrella of parameter variation. It is known that in vacuum with minimal leakage (the demo unit having maximum leakage), that it takes an extremely long time before the charge has to be restored if at all. That is the self-sustaining aspect that Chris Carson found, Trump claimed as well as some patent holders of different variations of Trump’s generator.
Finally, you will know most of the full story behind this rotary electrostatic converter that many people have wondered about over the years and now you have it. The presentation also shows several covers to different papers by Trump including his thesis and a patent that are must have’s in order to delve deeper into the study of this machine. This is far from definitive because many experiments need to be done, a higher quality and more robust rotary capacitor needs to be built to run in a vacuum chamber – so have at it – you now have the keys to a truly reactionless generator where drawing a load from it does not reflect back to the prime mover and this is potentially, a Holy Grail generator once fully optimized.
