06-29-98 - The New Design of the commutator v1.4

In my Newman's v1.4 setup, I have put a HV capacitor in pararallel with the coil ( I have used a HV mica capacitor coming from a neon tube "starter" ).

In spite of very WEAK positive current flow, I got strong and stable NEGATIVE current flow... I am now convinced that this is a good way to explore for reaching Overunity....

I have also redesigned the brushes setup for optimizing the current flow and this has given me the result showed in the scope pictures above. The
secret of a good tuning reside in the brushes slope above the surface of the broken segments. The brushes must FLY ABOVE the surface of these contacts, like the R/W heads of a hard disk drive used in computers. The lower gap must be adjusted for obtaining some very weak sparks at the running voltage and the slope of the brush must be very gradual. So, by this way, you build up an gradual spark gap Vs the angle of rotation. The positive current will be considerably reduced and the negative current flow will be amplified.....

The speed is now 500 RPM at 626 Volts and the interesting effect noticed, is that the MOTOR RUN ITSELF FOR about 4 mn 30 sec AFTER that the power supply has been switched off. In the previous version (v1.3) my Newman's machine, has stopped after 1 mn maximum. This mean that the average current flow in this new version (v1.4) is very very weak in spite of the apparent mechanical power generated.

The segments are 4 mm wide with a 3 mm gap between them. The firing sequence must be between 0 and 90 degrees (between the points 1 and 2 showed in the "Free Run" diagram).
