Self-Sustaining Charge in Electrostatic Rotary Converter built by Chris Carson

Electrostatic Rotary Converter

Last month, Eric Dollard and I tested the generator action in Chris Carson’s famous Electrostatic Rotary Converter – it produces a sine wave without depleting the electrostatic charge initially applied to the capacitor.

This video will show you the whole test – flea power but proves the concept nonetheless. John G. Trump, the master of this principle, a patent holder and Chris Carson mentioned the self-sustaining effect and said it takes a very long time before the capacitor is needed to be recharged – and that looks to be the case. Eric Dollard believes this to be the ultimat generator for the Tesla Turbine – no coils, no magnets.

It creates this by varying capacitance to respect to time as it bounces it back and forth. Eric Dollard said it creates a negative admittance so that it produces energy rather than consuming it. That is what is meant by self-sustaining – the charge in the capacitor stays up while producing a sinewave on the output to the load. More testing is needed – the capacitor does go down but that is spacer, moisture, etc. and not by producing a sine wave. More to come…

Electrostatic Potential Drags Prime Mover

Electrostatic Rotary Converter

Recently, I did a simple test recommended by Eric Dollard on the Rotary Electrostatic Converter built by Chris Carson. It is recommended to look at the below post first before watching the video on the recent test.

Chris carson’s rotary electrotatic converter

The capacitor was sped up with a DC motor and then a potential transformer was turned up to about 4500 volts DC and this potential was applied to 1/2 of the capacitor to see if the electrostatic lines would try keep the rotating capacitor plates in phase with the stationary plates. If so, then it should increase the load on the DC motor and reducing it’s speed.

The video is here and there are some more tests to come relating to this:
