Magnetism is a mysterious, invisible force. Both the Sun and the
Earth have natural magnetic fields. Humans discovered natural magnets
(lodestone) in ancient times, and the Chinese were first to use natural
magnets to create the magnetic compass. Magnetism has always fascinated
people. In 1821, Joseph Henry discovered how to make an artificial
magnetic field using electricity flowing through a coil of wire.
In 1831, Michael Faraday discovered electromagnetic induction, which
is the basis of all commercially available electric motors and generators.
invisible force called Magnetism has already changed the world. It
has given us electricity, radio, television, computers, and thousands
of other things. But it's greatest gift to mankind is yet to be realized.
Magnetism can provide a source of inexhaustible, pollution-free energy.
In the last 120 years, dozens of inventors have reported success
in harnessing magnetism to produce excess mechanical energy, electricity,
and heat. Recently, there have even been reports of using magnets
to produce refrigeration effects. With permanent magnets getting
stronger and cheaper all the time, more and more researchers are
probing the unknown properties of magnetism.
Here are a few
of the amazing
discoveries about magnetism that have been made in the last 40 years.
discovered electricity could be extracted from a rotating magnetized
cylindrical. This created the first electric generator that had a
rotor, but no stator. Bob
Teal discovered that very powerful electric motors
could be built using electric solenoids pulling on a crank shaft
Adams discovered that huge amounts of heat could be
generated by the magnetic field in what he called his "Thermo-motor."
discovered that electric motors could be designed that returned up
to 90% of the input electricity without diminishing the mechanical
motor torque. And finally, the team of John Christie and Lou Brits
have built working models of machines that put a lot of these features
together and produce more electricity than they run on.
to all of this, Rosemary
Ainslie has developed a new Magnetic Field Model that
describes why these things may be possible, as well as run an experiment
that demonstrates heat production from electricity at 16 times normal
All of these
discoveries suggest that there is still plenty to learn about magnetism
as a potential source of energy.
