06-23-98 - Mechanical Efficiency test by using the "Prony Brake" method ( TEST RUN 1)

The prony brake testing setup for the Newman's machine v1.0

AVG Elc.Power Input (W) : This is the average electrical input power which use the current accross a 100 ohms resistor in series with the coil and the voltage measure accross the coil. This power is the average of all the power during one turn of the rotor.

AVG Joules'Power Losses (W) : This is the average power dissipated by Joules' effect in the coil AVG of P = R * I^2 during one turn of the rotor.

AVG Magnetomotive Power (W) = AVG Elc.Power Input (W) - AVG Joules'Power Losses (W) This is the "real magnetic power", the "Magnetomotive" which produces the rotation of the magnet and by this way generates the mechanical torque on the shaft.

MECHANICAL Power out (W) : This is the mechanical power measured by the "Prony brake" method.

MMT Conversion Efficiency = MECHANICAL Power out (W) / AVG Magnetomotive Power (W) This shows the magnetic power conversion and this show how much the Magnetomotive power is really converted into mechanical torque by the rotating magnet.

Joules' Power Losses = AVG Joules'Power Losses (W) / AVG Elc.Power Input (W) This shows how much (in %) the electrical power input has been dissipated into Joules's effect.

Magnetomotive power generated = AVG Magnetomotive Power (W) / AVG Elc.Power Input (W) This shows how much (in %) electrical power input has been converted into magnetomotive power.

Mechanical Losses in MMT power = (AVG Magnetomotive Power (W) - MECHANICAL Power out (W) ) / AVG Elc.Power Input (W) This shows how much (in %) power is lost either in mechanical frictions or in not used electromagnetic radiations (sparks)...
