Dec 30, 2012 - TEST #1 results: This is the first efficiency measurement done with a lightmeter. I have used a Voltcraft Luxmeter LX-1108 for measuring the light intensity of the halogen lamps connected to the OUTPUT while the electrical power is measured with an Wattmeter Voltcraft Energy Logger EL4000F.
Here is the method that I have used for the TEST #1 :
EFFICIENCY % = ( Power2 / Power1 ) * 100
Below the setup used for the TEST #1
Here the video of the TEST #1 of the GEGENE
TEST #1 RESULTS :
In spite of these results giving a measured efficiency of 91.4 % with the lightmeter, may be that the parameters were not really optimal, particularly the positioning of the bifilar output coil. I shall soon conduct new tests and measurements of the efficiency with another method.
This is only the begining of the GEGENE project, more tests and improvements are soon coming...
