This simple experiment is a replication of the Quadra test done by Telos Research on 'Toroid coils and Vector Potential'. This experiment has been fully detailled in the AGT/Telos web site 1. Recently, on dec 13, 2004, Jerry Bayles has also conducted some tests in this field of research and he has obtained some interesting results 2 which tend to confirm the effect observed by Telos.
So, I have conducted myself one of the Telos' Quadra tests. I have used two ferrite coils commonly used to remove RF in electronic power supplies. These two toroid coils are connected in parallel. The apparatus is placed on a styrofoam plate and a 2x20 mm stainless steel rod is used as a projectile.
Above : The projectile is placed in the main axis of the two toroid coils.
A simple experiment setup : A 21000 µF capacitor (charged at about 50V) is discharged through the two toroid coils.
Above, the measured voltage accross the toroid coils during the discharge.
Test results : This first serie of tests has been
successfull : when the capacitor is discharged into the device,
the projectile is accelerated up to a very high speed through the
main axis of the toroid coils. It is projected up to 30 cm far.
Different sizes of capacitors have also been tested ( 80000 µF
and 160000 µF ), the best thrust has been obtained with a 21000
µF charged at about 50V DC. It seems that the time constant (
dI/dt ) has a major role to get the max thrust. It is also
important to notice that the polarity is not important.
Today, the main questions are : Does the thrust observed in this experiment can be really related to the Vector Potential ? Or, does this experiment is a simple Lenz repulsive force experiment commonly used in any coil gun ?

A square wave generator drives this circuit by sending square wave pulses ( 0-10 Hz, 0-10V DC )
Note : The BUZ11 MosFet transistor can also been replaced by an IRFZ34 or better by a BUZ22
Test with an Electrostatic charge detector ( Dec 18, 2004 )
In this test, I have checked the presence of
induced electric charges in a conductive rod fixed in the middle
axis of the two toroid coils. A very short current pulse produces
a strong magnetic field in the toroid coils, if a conductor (a
brass rod) is placed in the middle, the free electrons move
towards one side, so, the presence of accumulated charges on each
side can be detected by an electrometer.
Now, a new question arises : Is the motion of free electrons inside the conductive rod ( due to Motional Electric Field 4 ) able to produce a sufficient force to move the rod itself ?

Experiment - Project Status
Last Update Dec 24, 2004
|A steel rod placed in the main axis is projected strongly by the toroid coils.||Tested and effect confirmed||The effect observed can be compared to a common 'coil gun' effect. The force acting on the projectile seems to be induced by a magnetic field leakage of the ferrite torus saturated by the strong current pulses.|
|A small light weight sheet of paper is ejected.||Tested but effect not confirmed||In some case a very weak motion of a small sheet of paper has been observed, but this seems produced only by a mechanical vibration of the toroid coils apparatus.|
|The device moves upward against gravity||Tested but effect not confirmed||Different tests have been performed about this and no motion upward of the device has yet been observed.|
|A laser beam passing through the middle axis of the toroid coils is bent.||Tested but effect not confirmed||Different tests have been performed with a laser beam and no effect has yet been observed.|
|Electrostatic charges are induced in a conductive rod placed in the main axis of the toroid coils when the current pulses are sent.||Tested and effect confirmed||Electrostatic charges have been detected on each side of a conductive rod placed in the main axis of a toroid coils.|
|Today, after a lot of tests conducted on the Telos' Toroid coils, it seems that the effects observed are relevant to a common Lenz repulsion force produced by the leakage of the magnetic field produced by a saturation of the ferrite core. A true action of the Magnetic Vector Potential has not yet been detected in the Telos' toroid coils device.|
