I am very gratefull to Thane C. Heins for his encouragements and his very helpfull technical support which have conducted me to succeed in the replication of the ReGenX of Potential Difference Inc.

February 27, 2013 - DLE-TEST08 : Here is an interesting application of the Thane C. Heins' Regenerative Acceleration Effect applied to charge a battery with a running motor/generator. The RAG (Regenerative Acceleration Generator) v1.2 previously tested has been improved with a High Voltage secundary which has a higher inductance value and a bigger time constant. So, in this test, the RAG v1.3 is used as a motor and also as a generator for charging a battery.
Below the setup used for the TEST-DLE08 :
The secundary High Voltage coil is connected on a step down transformer. Then, the voltage is rectified via a Graetz bridge and a partially discharged lead battery can be connected via a switch. The battery voltage is monitored with a digital oscilloscope Fluke 123 used as a data logger.
RESULTS AND MEASUREMENTS OF THE CHARGE OF THE BATTERY WITH THE RAG v1.3 :
Test protocol :
At the begining, the partially charged battery (starting voltage = 11.8 Volts) is not connected to the RAG, the motor is started at a turn speed of 5300 RPM (810 Hz measured),
When the turn speed is stabilized, the charge activation switch is set to ON, and the charge of the battery begins. When the speed is again stabilised, the RPM is noted and the battery voltage is recorded on the Fluke 123 data logger.
Below, the initial state (step 1) : when the RAG speed is stabilized, the turn speed is about 5300 RPM and the battery is not yet connected.
Below, the state of the system after 6 minutes of running : the turn speed is stabilised to about 5390 RPM.
When the battery is charging, we can observe that the turn speed has increased and also that the current is a bit lower than when the battery is not charging.
The voltage curve, displayed on screen of the Fluke 123 data logger, confirms that the battery is charging, see below :
This RAG (Regenerative Acceleration Generator) v1.3 test, a replication of the ReGenX of PDI, fully confirms that : while a battery is charging at its output, the RPM of the motor increases...
