A very good CAE style video presentation link and a possible development aid (add-on) paper [zip] can be found in a post located here:

Also included in the text is a link to 31 Ruslan demonstration videos.

Some advanced developers may find the material interesting and valuable.

Unfortunately this site does not accommodate file attachments over 2MB or the "USING THE INVERTER SECTION OF A DUAL FUEL INTERNAL COMBUSTION INVERTER/GENERATOR WITH A RUSLAN TYPE ELECTRONIC EXCESS ENERGY PRODUCTION SCHEME" zip or rar file would have been attached in this post.

Good luck in your work and have a great day!

Some "free tools" you might find useful when working with YouTube videos and other files:

Youtube-DLG - this program will directly download videos with a translation subtitle enbeded. You must set your language first, along with some other parameters, in the settings.     {then Clone or download (right hand side)}

VLC Player - a video player that will allow you to slow down the video (read subtitles easier). You must select "subtitle" in the menu bar or in settings | subtitles | select "all" for default subtitle on.

ImageGlass - allows you to view and size many picture formats. For example: in the " How does the installation of Ruslan Kulabukhov 2018 Part 2" video page [found in the above post] there is a file called "Final.jpg" (screen view of video CAE). To zoom in on the text use ImageGlass and "screen width," etc.

InfanView - a more sophisticated and powerful general file, video, etc. program.

Also, a good site for some theories with "interactive parameter graphics displays" as well (e.g. Coil Standing and Travelling Wave power) examples. Site translation is also included (upper right hand flags).

Appologies if some of this has already been provided elsewhere.

Great job on sharing Solarlab!

From what I can see, and I have not spent a lot of time reviewing the material, but it looks to be spot on!

Excellent job!

Hey Solarlab,

Thanks for the offer. I have a few problems with Files. The transfer of large files restricts site performance. I need site performance.

However, I have increased the file size from just over 5mb to 10mb. This is a more realistic size.

Let me know if this is not enough, I am happy to increase a little more if required.

Hey Solarlab and Happy New Year

Hi Aloha,

Happy New Year!

Your question as to "What has changed in intrinsic electron structure?" unfortunately I don't have a definitive answer for. That answer, if it could be varified by experiment, would probably be Nobel material. But we can always ponder and study.

A real short (cheat) answer, from an engineering prospective, might be "increase the potential difference [add HV pulses] within the system." This appears to what has been done in Ruslan's and others early (2015) devices.

Over the years my leaning has been towards thinking that Dirac's work in the 1930's is more believable, to me at least, and holds the most promise in describing a viable electron structure and interaction.

One long term project I would like to complete someday is integrating the Dirac and Maxwell equations such that modern CAE software (Comsol Multiphysics in particular) had the capability to work in both positive and negative energies (Dirac). There is light however, since I recently read a paper where apparently this has been accomplished.

There are several papers attached relating to Dirac and one that describes a late 1990's project called Genesis. A long while back but it did strike my interest. Also, I am actively working on Comsol analysis of coils and high voltage interaction. So far so good but still a long way to go!

With respect to "How might High Voltge Pulses be used to increase current flow" question. You may find the attached papers to be quite interesting and thought provoking. Experimenting as well as varification should not be too difficult.

About mid 1999 a postulation was developed known as "The GENESIS PROJECT." It posed an interesting view of positive and negative energy flow and followed Dirac's approach to an extent with an extended feature of adding high voltage around a coil.

The only two surviving papers, to the best of my knowledge, are attached.

Links to the papers are:
Original paper March 1999: 
Revised edition:

Ergo; an interest in integrating Maxwell's and Dirac's equations and ultimately developing a CAE analysis/proof of the Ruslan generator device operation theory.

The Genesis Project 'may' tie well into explaining the Tesla Transformer part of the attached schematics which are a part of the previous video cited by Steven Marks, a.k.a Absolut. Use of the term "non inductive" in the paper, I believe, would also describe a coil's Bi-Filar effect.

Hey SolarLab

As an experienced EE and follower of P.Dirac you probably well know what did he said about General Theory of Relativity

Quote him

"The main equations of modern quantum electrodynamics are incorrect." P. Dirac



About "Genesis" project i have stopped reading further after 3rd page where i have found this:

"The above is a new interpretation (genesis project) based on the general principle of relativity about a
conduction current, a magnetic field and an induced electric field."

If you are really searching for the RIGHT TRACK in infinite abyss of lies i can help you , simply pointing you in a truthful direction.

Start research about, particle mass, particle kinetic energy and inertial forces. !!

About one of main misconception in modern relaitvity "science".

SolarLab - do you ready to take a look in the eyes of the TRUTH ?

Belive or not, know or not but - in modern Main Stream Physics everything was based on policy.

How had started ?

The Danish theorist Lorentz can from boredom, and can out of boredom, set for himself such ridiculous task: "What happens to Maxwell's equations if to place them in the moving system of coordinates?"

Does there will be they invariable (invariant) or will change?

He thought up the known transformations which were wrong, and showed with their help the invariance of the equations of Maxwell in the moving system of coordinates. Soon these transformations from Lorentz were bought by the WallStreet, Zurich and London bankers, and they entered as a fundamental factor, in the "theory of relativity" of Einstein in a year published in the German scientific magazine "Annalen der Physik".

So the world learned that Einstein is not a small clerk in patent office of Geneva, and the great Jewish physicist and greatest mankind physicist. And Maxwell's equations were after Lorentz it seems objective check of correctness of transformations of Lorentz. Here and everything as it appeared, a detective story with humour of the electrodynamic equations of Maxwell. All business appeared not in Maxwell and even not in Lorentz, and in the Trojan Horse in the jewish physicist Einstein who was filled from the head to a tail by one policy formulated by the called Jewish banksters. And Europe went for this monetaristic zhupel again, taking away science and the people from Truth light to the swamp of obscurantism and fascism.

And where is humour —  you could ask?

Here everyone has to think and, it is possible that depending on man's personal outlook the humour will appear in different color.

I do not want to expatiate on this collective work XIX of Europe and the beginning of the 20th centuries more. Maxwell of these equations composed twenty pieces and soon died.

Then there were well-wishers and began to canonize them. Activists in this process were Hevisayd and Hertz. They long were called Hevisayd's equations — German Hertz until Jew Einstein did not became "the greatest physicist - again Jewish".

From its instruction appropriated to these equations a name of Maxwell again. And all archaisms in them remained. Including one famous that magnetic field has no mass!!. In reallity Magnetic Force Field could be so huge, while in the same time, magnetic carriers of these forces has no mass at all.

Unless is it not a humour ?

Besides in the modern relativity books on physics is written that magnetic field has no mass. Precisely Maxwell's hypothesis repeats divB=0 !

and, of course, not withouth instructions of "greatest physicist" ever.

Here also it turns out, as money of the WallStreet , Zurich and London bankers is valid and, of course, has also mass (weight). While with a mass of magnetic field - there is a crunch.

The Truth is come to the rescue by skilled material from the reference book
Grigoriev I.S and Melihov E.Z. - Physical quantities: Reference book. by: Energoizdat 1991 USSR.

In this reference book the dependence of specific resistance of tungsten against the magnitude of cross-sectional magnetic field is given or ρ = f(B)

It is established fact that change B from 102 T(Tesla) to 105 T, ρ increases more than by 7 orders (10 million times - look at the Chart of the Colour) [6, page. 748, fig. 30.24].

Question is what happens to tungsten if his electrical resistance becomes almost like ceramics influented by giant magnetic field ?

If Magnetic filed has no mass, who did this with tungsten - Evil Spirit maybe ?


SolarLab - keep in mind that, this is not exclusieve example.!!!

Those experimetal facts were gathered on several thousands !!!

Best regards

Hi Aloha,

A quick question for you - maybe a long and twisted answer, but let me ask anyway.
As a follower of Dirac and, I suspect, familiar with Maxwell:

Do you have any ideas or specific suggestions regarding how best to integrate Dirac's equation (positron - negatron energy states; an equation with two or four possible answers), with the Maxwell equations?


Also, I try not to discount any theoretical approaches to physics or engineering. Some theories sometimes work better than others with respect to the problem being solved.

For a simple example; Ohms law is good for determining the bias current/voltage for a switching diode even at 4GHz (Kirchoff) but the directional coupler part of the device requires a distributed electromagnetic approach (lines and waves); whereas an optical style (ray trace) approach might be used to analyze the horn and parabolic reflector part of the system. The same applies, in my opinion, to relativity and the other various theories. We don't as yet have the Golden combined "theory of everything." Although I do agree Dirac may have come the closest to it!

The primary point of the "Genesis Project" is simply an approach in explaining that by subjecting the bi-filar coil to an external high voltage (potential) influence, the coil may exhibit a change in characteristics; e.g. negative inductance - no inductance - positive inductance.

This may or may not be the theory of "why" this happens but it has little to do with the General Theory of Relativity, in my opinion, mearly a way of trying to explain the experimental results.

Your comment about "research particle mass, etc.," as I explained above - I try to consider all theoretical approaches. No "one size" approach fits all! It would be very myopic (and detrimental) to do otherwise. The rest of your post is mear history and conjecture, so it goes into the round bin as far as I'm concerned.

Particle Theory versus Wave Theory debate will rage on for many many years I' sure, as will conventional versus relativity - but it's a stupid debate with little to be gained in the end.

Use whatever theory gets the job done, and allows you to move forward - that's what real engineers and physicists do. Leave the debate to the academics - since, as useful as it may be, they are generally capable of little else.

Of course all of the above is just My Humble Opinion.

Hey SolarLab

I have no idea about your plan to mix UNMIXABLE stuff - like proved Particle Kinematic Theory against unprovable Einstain&Main Stream "science" Wave Theory !

If you want to make complete new theory maybe i can help you somehow. My personal oppinion is for begining you can try to replicate simple Mr.Preva experiment according to Chris instructions.

Another suggestion you can do with easy - make experiments with isolated charges (both signs) against influence of stationary magnetic field of any neodymium-iron-boron magnet.

I guess you have all needed equipment to make professional job here ?

ps: Answer to your question is yes, but much better i think is making mentioned experiments as a master judge of any theory !





solarlab posted this 18 January 2019


This link may help explain the desire to mix Dirac and Maxwell. This is just one of many but it accents the idea:

Many experiments have been done, including Preva, however the focus is developing a theoretical understanding so that Comsol Multiphysics or similar software can be used to analyze and optimize the related devices.

This is why I posted in the "Theory" section of this forum. My interest at the moment is not any specific experiments but rather attempting to use CAE to characterize a Ruslan or similar device. We have proved they work but are still not able to fully explain and varify why, using technical science. Without the math we will continue to go in circles.

We use Maxwell in our software analysis on an almost continual basis to solve and optimize our electromagnetic problems but it has difficulty yielding any hint of excess energy. Dirac on the other hand appears to open the door to infinite excess energy.

Combine the two and we might possibly have the key to EM analysis with the probability of excess energy optimization! A worthy persuit?

This thesis points out an experimental approach to coil analysis and touches on computer aided engineering at the end.

Although their objective is to examine insulation failure in transformers; it has some good introduction information regarding transients (high voltage spikes and waveforms), resonances within the coil windings and several measurement techniques. The author also discusses relationships with respect to standing and traveling waves in the coil. Link:


Review the paper while keeping in mind his objective is to investigate harmful transients and mitigate excess energy, whereas our objective is to instigate transients and promote excess energy. Generally note that many papers are like this - what they try to avoid, we try to create!


Reading between the lines, so to speak, it appears that a 'continual' introduction of transients within a coil by certain 'waveform shapes' does indeed cause excess energy and thus transformer insulation failure. But the process is complex to describe technically and even more so to design, control and sustain.

A long read, however contains some good information.


BTW; Here's a Vector Network Analyzer that covers 1Hz to 50MHz (a bit pricey - about $5K US or so) but it works really well. Low frequency coverage, quality, VNAs used to be rare, they probably still are (?). Or sweep generator and storage scope with ch2 ref.

To assist in gaining a further appreciation of the external disturbance pulse shape on a coil's inner workings (see the paper above re: "VOLTAGE DISTRIBUTION ALONG REACTOR WINDING UNDER VERY FAST TRANSIENTS").

This link to Gorchilin's website has some explainations and interactive graphs where you can set the harmonic content of a 'disturbance pulse' and see, in graphical form, how the disturbance pulse waveshape determines the standing and traveling waves found amongst the coil windings. Although presented as a 'long line,' consider it an unwrapped coil for demo purposes. However, the actual wound coil interaction is even more interesting - this is were a good CAE EM analysis is very handy! Translate (upper right - flags) and go to Articles [Notes], then the first set of topics.

Of interest is that by unique pulse harmonic selection, you can move from a standing wave to a traveling wave.

Note: Some browsers do not set up the examples cited in text properly - therefore you have to review the "numbers" in the URL and relate them to the parameters entered into the graphic. Gorchilin's web page has quite a number of interesting items. Follow the hot links (blue) to the demonstration graphics calculators.

For example: (in this URL the L=0.5 , Q=100, g=0. g=81... relate to the slider number settings on the left hand side; set these to see the actual waveform to be demonstrated as per the text).

This is a long post and involves some of my observations (my opinions only). It initially was to be a response to another forum thread but evolved a bit. It is for information discussion only and contains unverified postulations. Consider it of value; or not.


F.Y.I.  [CAUTION - This is an ongoing "Work-in-Progress" rough draft]

GENERAL THEORY/OPINION - EXCESS ENERGY Version: 0.0.2 (Revised 21Jan19) Draft.

There are two parts to the following discussion: (1) How some parts of the Ruslan type device appear to work, in a general sense, and (2) a scheme that will greatly assist in the system's technical understanding, development and fabrication [using an off-the-shelf modified Internal Combustion Inverter Generator].

[[RA]] An alterative approach to that of the "Zenneck" method is given below. Zenneck may well be viable but other methods are also worthy of consideration; especially when they are easier, logical, achievable and more understandable up front. This alternative approach is provided for informational consideration only.

Part One - How it all might work, in a general, but very brief, sense.

[[RP]] Whether you use a Schumman/Zenneck/surface wave to trigger your system (hit the bell with in order to get it to ring [excess energy]) or you create an artificial source (an efficient pulse generator); it really does not matter, as long as the bell is periodically rung or the standing/traveling wave is initiated and maintained or the swing is occassionally pushed or the grandfather pendulum clock spring is wound once in a while. Consider potential and kinetic energy while observing dv/dt, di/dt; rapid impulse versus meandering wave. A stone thrown into a lake, a sumani, nature does it all the time; mimic nature.

Do not confuse a resonant structure with an oscillator; however a resonant structure can/will oscillate with a single stimulus and, if the "Q" is very high, it will continue to resonate/oscillate through many (n) cycles. In a resonant cavity (a helical coil, for example) a standing wave will move forward and return many times (n) with a single stimulus (pulse).

The excess energy created is then n-1. A cavity without loss (infinite Q) would yield infinite energy, and it would add up at a 4 times (4X) rate as the wave phases coincided as they cross each other (in phase - power). A traveling wave has similar characteristics and can be formed by simply including the correct amplitude and phase of the stimulus signal harmonics.

You need an intial power source [9VDC battery for example] to "start" the system; you need an super efficient scheme to resonate and/or use on-going waves that require very little power or a low repetition rate imputus to sustain the cycles, due to inherent losses; and you need an isolated method of drawing off the excess power without disturbing (killing) the excess power generating mechanism(s).

You can also add power boost techniques to increase the excess power output; such as a properly timed and phased potential difference, such as High Voltage pulses; or you can use an inverse current transformer method near the output.

To quote N. Tesla: "Think clearly, not deeply!" {A cute saying but wrot with contradiction - like the forest and tree saying}

At first glance the system appears to be quite complex; however, by viewing each piece individually, as a part of the overall system, the operation will quickly become clear. It's valuable to understand the detailed physics behind the methods, but it is certainly not required to go beyond basic reasoning and logic to appreciate the fundamental system operation.

One example of many [but thinking too deeply, it will get complex very quickly]: Take a coil and unwind it into a long line, for easy wavelength analysis. Stimulate the "near" end of the line with a waveform (sine, triangle, square, pulse - whatever) and terminate the "far" end with a "termination" (short, match, open - whatever). Observe what each combination of input and termination has on the "inter-line waveform."

Each long line will have a characteristic impedance based upon it's wavelength which determines it's "signal" reflection properties. But, keep in mind the coil, when wound, will have additional impedance parameters (a combination of turn to turn inductance and capacitance as well as self inductance and wavelength), although these can all be characterized and/or measured. Matching a line simply refers to terminating a coil or long line with it's corresponding complex condjugate impedance [opposite to the line inductance or capacitance - cancels the complex part (L or C) to yield a resistance only].

However for our purposes we want a line or coil that will reflect the input signal, therefore a mismatch is desired [a short to ground typically]. Refer to Gorchilin's site for an interactive graph demonstration. Note that if the "near" end generator is not matched to the line then the input signal will continue reflecting back and forth and building power as the reflected waves cross each other.

However, thinking clearly about the example above - A coil, cavity, line or other structure can be easily made to oscillate at it's natural resonant frequencies with a narrow stumulus [pulse]; and, if the structures are high "Q" [very low loss] they will oscillate for a long time without any further stimulus. To keep it oscillating - as it dies off - stimulate it again, but consider the phase.

In an ideal lossless LC circuit would a single stimulus (a pulse with the proper characteristics) oscillate/resonate forever? YES. If, however, the circuit was only "very efficient" (minimal losses, but had some slight losses) it would eventually die out, unless it was again stimulated at a future time, and so on. Only perodic stimulations would sustain continual oscillations at circuit resonance. A small periodic input stimulus (low power) will yield a large output power on a sustained basis!

Another consideration is "air core" versus "ferrite/steel core." Frequency, loss and size trade-offs. Recall Tesla's Coil is typically air core; whereas conventional (50/60Hz) transformers are steel or ferrite core; uninteruptable power supplies are torriod ferrite; television flybacks and yoke cores are typially ferrite material. Optimized for the application frequency [including harmonics], losses, size and power?

Lets try an analogy like the swing, or better yet, a merry-go-round. Attached on the outter edges are magnets and surrounding them are circular pickup coils. It's easy to periodically push the marry-go-round but the "interaction" [drag] between the magnets and the coils will quickly slow the circular motion. Akin to creating a low drag hull on a catamaran or a hovercraft versus a deep hull sail boat or cargo ship!

Now the challenge becomes eliminating this "drag." Loose coupling or Bi-Filar windings are effective techniques; or timing schemes where the Lenz/back EMF is isolated at the instant of extraction and the interactive "drag" is reduced or eliminated all together. You must extract the power without affecting the resonance oscillation and not decreasing system efficiency. Tricky but not impossible. Maybe that's where the real secret is? You need the coils to transfer magnetic flux but you must avoid self/mutual induction of this magnetic interaction. This is of primary importance.

Why can "IT" be done NOW? Technology has advanced (efficient, low power, complex devices) along with our understanding and the availability of powerful analysis/design/simulation tools that are now available to us. Some feature open access to the underlying mathematics [formulas] that can be manipulated to include non-conventional approaches.

A look at an Inverter/Generator (Internal Combustion Engine types) MODIFICATION for a Ruslan device:

Quite a lot can be learned by analyzing the operation if these generators when applied to the theory and design of an all Electronic type of Excess Energy Generator (no moving parts) similar to that of Ruslan's devices but easier to implement. But this is only a part of it - on the back end, so to speak.

Circuits used must be as efficient as possible, you still need to create a way to get excess energy, and these combined techniques all need to be coordinated, syncronized and generally isolated so that one does not affect the others.

Efficiencies and techniques should focus, for example, on Resonance (e.g. ringing bell - hit once it vibrates many times [OU]); Standing/Traveling Waves (single narrow pulse with appropriate harmonic content creates a standing or traveling wave in a coil that bounces up/down or forward/backward, building in energy with each ongoing cycle); High Voltage Pulsed current boosting (properly timed burst of excessive potential [and high speed - kinetic energy] stimulates electron movement and growth; Bi-Filar winding techniques (e.g. reduce back EMF - reduced coil winding interaction); Loose Coil Coupling (e.g. Tesla Coil or Melnichenko Coil); and so forth...

These methods provide the required efficiencies; where a small energy input can yield a much larger energy output.
Study resonance, especially where resistance theoretically becomes infinite (resistance/impedance equals loss) at the system resonant frequencies. NOTE: A resonant oscillator would oscillate forever if there were no losses and it remained in resonance - resonance must not be destroyed or interfered with - it must remain as isolated as practicable - and is must be fed from time to time to make up for any inevitable circuit losses. This is true for all highly efficient, high Q, circuits.

Removal of the excess energy from the system, without disturbing the energy producer, becomes the challenge. Some, or all, of the methods mentioned above have been employed successfully. There are likely many others. Think bits and pieces as well as the system as a whole. Voltage creates current, current produces magnetic fields, magnetic fields produce voltage, voltage produces current, current and voltage produce power, resistance is loss, impedance (phasing) can also be a friend, and so on.

Study OHMs Law (simplified but useful for understanding); I=V/R, current is proportional to voltage, but according to P=VI or I=P/V shows that current is inversly proportionl to voltage, changing R or P will increase or decrease V or I. If you increase V by keeping the source power constant then the current would decrease. When V increases, I decreases because P remains constant. I is proportional to V if R remains constant and Temperature remains constant. This is how transformers function (simplified). But, if the Power is improved then both V and I will increase. Draw OHMs Law circles and play with the values.

Part Two - Possibily a very good design and development Aid.

An AID in developing an excess energy generator - much of the work is already done in the Inverter/Generator. Study the schematic in the following article. Replace the Engine and Alternator with a high frequency, efficient, electronic (Ruslan style) device. And, keep the capacitor charged. It's so easy, you will laugh! Or not!

To quote in part from the article: "Inner Workings

A conventional generator rotates two large coils inside its core, and each full engine rotation produces one complete ac sine wave. By design, the engine must spin the generator at 3600 RPM to produce the desired ac output. If, because of varying loads, the generator spins faster or slower, the voltage and frequency of the output vary in step.
In an inverter generator, the core uses multiple coils and multiple magnets. Each full rotation of the engine produces more than 300 three phase ac sine waves at frequencies up to 20 kHz, which produces more electrical energy per engine revolution. A microprocessor-controlled inverter module converts the high-frequency ac to dc (about 200 V in at least one unit) before “inverting” it back to clean, stable 120 V, 60-Hz ac power.

Typical inverter generator regulation specs are 3% voltage, 1% frequency and 3% sine wave distortion. That’s essentially “power company” ac in a hand-carried unit!

Compare that to the other types of generators in Table 1. ..."

Schematic and Operation Theory:

Replace the Engine and 3-PH Alternator with a Ruslan type high voltage pumped grenade coil that feeds the bridge diodes which, in turn, feed the Capacitor. Keep the Capacitor charged at high frequency. This Capacitor in turn feeds a precision 120/240VAC 4KW electronic inverter (IGBT INVERTER using PWM CONTROL). You are no longer restricted to 3600 RPM and can drive the bridge/capacitor with high frequency pulses (e.g. 20KHz - internal diode frequency limit dependant).

This is a modified commercial off-the-shelf inverter type gennerator. Just add a means to keep the capacitor charged (Ruslan or similar device), the remainder of the inverter/generator provides a very clean 120/240V sine wave AC with all the AC plugs and battery included.

General Inverter/Generator Articles:

Lazar's Power Electronics Guide - an excellent source of information:

[[RA]] Good luck and have a productive week! Note: This is a "Work-in-Progress" rough draft.

Thank you Solarlab, a fine write up, I spotted a lot of gold nuggets in there. I will need to go back and study what you wrote some more in detail later as there were a several points which I was not familiar with, but which my intuition says is good.

Perhaps you already know this and if so another will find it useful. A very efficient means for generating a "surface wave" is to drive the transmission line [my preferred term for a conductive wave guide] directly with a mosfet driver (using only the driver itself not a mosfet). Specifically the IXDN602PI has been personally tested by me and operates very well at moderate frequencies (<200kHz) at between 7 and 35V input. The main benefits are low operation cost such that most of the current drawn is through displacement and not switching transistors and low voltage and low weight (no transformer needed).

Quick Note: the last post was intended to point out some basic, but often overlooked, elements; e.g. differences between air core coils and ferrite core coils - linear v. non-linear operation, losses, hysteresis saturation, narrow band v. wide band, etc... Fundamental, but still very important stuff, IMHO.


Some more Theory and other {interesting (?)} Advancements:

1. Our march towards the ultimate theory discovery has also advanced a bit with the "simple understanding" of how the high voltage might contribute to achieving excess energy. A simple equation (the third equation [4.3]) found in a (lecture) chapter I'm sure we all don't recall [well, I didn't anyway}!

'Time Varying Fields, Simple Waves'
"Likewise, a time varying electric field induces a magnetic field through the displacement current, even in the absence of the current J = 0. As is well known, the displacement current played a crucial role in Maxwell.s prediction that electromagnetic waves can propagate through vacuum."

Formula (4.3).  [insert formula]

2. Also; Comsol Multiphysic's compiler does allow a complete problem solution to be compiled into an .exe file that can be run on a remote computer (Windows only at the moment) without a Comsol license, plus, the solution can contain variables. It's read only, however the problem can be formulated such that "If Then" parameter selections can be evaluated. Great! But needs more work and testing. 

This might be a nice aid for the MakerMark "kids" as well.

3. BTW, we have developed a Ruslan Generator type device "Test Set" that we plan on sharing with members of grooups like "MakerMark" to promote wide spread development of "electronic excess energy electrical power generation systems" (E4PGS).

There are two versions of the Test Set. V1 (original - high cost - many expensive instruments) and V2 (a single multi-function, low cost, instrument - but still very capable). We will release the details in a new thread very soon (still porting V1 to V2). The "Test Set" topic is more on the experimental hardware side; even though it's primary purpose is to support the theoretical validation and further development.

Anyway - "Stand-Bye" - !

Forgot to mention the Test Set V1 and V2 equipment lists:

V1 - Picoscope (2 - 2 channel 5000 series); JDS2900 Function/AWG generators (up to 5 total, 2 minimum) [nice rise/fall times ~3nS, pulse width min 28nS (30MHz version - 60MHz version spec is 10nS min pulse width) at 10Vpp (more or less); Omicron BODE Vector Network Analyzer [VNA] (1Hz to 40MHz), HV Probe (50MHz), power supplies, etc..

These all have nice PC interface software (Gigabye Brix i7 16GB RAM 1TB SSD). This test setup works very good and does the job. Used for exercising the FET switches feeding the coils (Tesla and "TV Yoke" or ferrite torroid - push pull {half bridge} and T&M. Search for links and specs.

V2 - Analog Discovery 2 (AD2) by Digilent/Analog Devices. Multifunction PC based instrument (all in one Scope, Generator, AWG, VNA,16 channel I/O, pulse, Voltmeter, programability, etc.). Unique is the ability to use a variety of functions together at the same time (FPGA based). AND, the price/performance is unbelievable (so far appears to suite this application very well). Plus, the data can be exported directly to CAE for simulation, analysis and optimization.

A BIG extra feature of the AD2 is the Vector Network Analyzer and Arbitrary Waveform Generator capability.

Note: check out the "NI Academic products" for student pricing [left side of link].

We're preparing white papers and application notes for both Test Set versions focused on E4PGS and similar type devices.

More to come...

In a post last week the following was included, however it was somewhat burried so it's repeated again for clairity.

1. Our march towards the ultimate theory discovery has also advanced a bit with the "simple understanding" of how the high voltage might contribute to achieving excess energy. A simple equation (the third equation [4.3]) found in a (lecture) chapter I'm sure we all don't recall [well, I didn't anyway}!

2. Vyacheslav Gorchilin recently put up four (4) pages that are directly related. He, as usual, does an excellent job of explaining and analyzing, with included mathematics, the High Voltage "impact" on Ruslan's so called "Grenade Coil." Thanks to the {amazing} Gorchilin, we can now work towards completing our systems analysis.

This link is to the first of four pages.

High Voltage Pulses and Their Effect(s) on the System: [additional current]

As we (slowly) move through the Ruslan type excess energy generation analysis and theoretical development we try to equally equate the computer assisted engineering (CAE), numerical, and experimental paths as much as possible.

Realizing Maxwell's equations provides a look into Displacement Current; although in a round-about fashion where there must be magnetic (current) as well as electrical potential (voltage) in a transmitted through the air electromagnetic signal.

So, the question as to how the High Voltage Pulses (generated by a Tesla Coil, Katcher, or other means) might add to (increase) the Power (V * I) created within the system, while also keeping in mind the dv/di and/or dv/di phenomena, a quick look at a simple CAE example re: Displacement Current can provide insight {magnetic field and current are married as are potential difference and current - they are mutually inclusive}:

Note that one capacitor terminal (plate) is the so called [unterminated] "Antenna" driven from the Tesla Coil, while the other capacitor terminal (plate) is the Exciter/Grenade Coil; both have a return path common connection [ground].

Figures 2, 3 and 4 show the displacement current and induced conduction current density as well as the terminal current. Consider repeating this sequence very rapidly, using pulses with steep rise and fall times {nSec} (dv/dt), many times in a proper timing sequence (phase additive). Actually, it quite easy to simulate!

BTW; Test Sets are still being evaluated against CAE and experimental data (they're "in the works").

Have a good week!

Question: Why a spiral (a few turns of wire) for the high voltage "antenna" plate and not a split tube or similar?

A guess answer for now: We are not charging a plate (or capacitor per sa). It's purpose is as a terminal only. We do not want the charge to "linger;" (no, or little, residual charge) but instead bleed off rapidly (within a few nSecs) and then await the next HV pulse (near zero dwell time). It is the rapid succession of dv/dt that is of interest.

Hey Solarlab - A fantastic question!

What does a Spiral do? What is the point of a Helix of Wire?

Some questions I have posed here: The Field Structure of Nature

Hi Chris, thanks for pointing out that great thread - some very interesting stuff.

However, the reference to a spiral (Tesla "antenna" which serves as "capacitive Hat" for that part of the Tesla Coil), in the above case, is with repect to a circuit analysis point of view. It is viewed simply as forming one plate of a capacitor, with the other plate being the exciter coil combined with grenade coil - these two plates form a type of asymetrical capacitor.

The idea of forming an asymetrical capacitor, where one plate is formed by a relatively thin wire (in a convienient spiral shape for ease of mounting) as opposed to a split tubular, or other such form, is high-lighted to emphasize the fact that we do not want to actually "charge" the plate structure since that would disrupt the pulsed high voltage (dv/dt) effect.

We need a very small (nSec) dwell time - the wire plate structure must discharge or equalize very quickly in order that the next high voltage pulse can be fully effective. If the capacitor plate remained charged the next high voltage pulse effect would be minimized to some extent.But note that there may be other, yet undiscovered (and unseen), things happening - as have been discovered when analyzing the so called grenade, and other, coils (EM CAE simulations).

Although it does appear in the simulation analysis of the coils that a spiral or vortex component is present and does, in fact, play a role; the mention of a spiral wire "antenna" in the circuit configuration in this case is meant more to point out only it's "use" as a capacitor plate (or terminal) with respect to displacement current in the circuit sense and the timing (dwell) parameter.

Hope this clarifies this analysis approach a little better. Not really related to nature or any vortex concept in this respect - just one plate of an asymetrical capacitor that is twisted around to facilitate easy mounting and satisfies the fast repetitive pulse requirements.

Viewing the system timing diagrams (when they are completed and varified) will help bring this to light.

QUESTION - Technical Testing Development


As part of our work with the "Maker" groups we are developing several "Test Sets" that focus primarily on the "Ruslan" type "Electronic Excess Energy Generation (E3G)" devices. These Test Sets specifically target providing a means to "exercise" various components of the E3G as well as the integrated system as a whole.

In an attempt to make a Test Set that is more viable, one of the instruments we are working with is the computer based "Digilent Analog Discovery 2" (TS-2) which has multifunction capabilities that includes, but is not limited to; dual channel oscilloscope and waveform generator, vector network analyzer, and logic generator and analyzer.

With a band width within our device test and exercise range [12MHz - 100MS/s], the Analog Discovery 2 and Waveforms3 software appears it might be a good fit [includes script and store]. It's many features and capabilities, however, present an initial complex challenge; but at it's near $200-$300US (lower with student discounts, etc.) price range the cost/bennefit is very appealing!

Brief Analog Discovery2 Instrument review and specifications are found here:

Our initial "Test Set (TS-1)" is fully capable of providing valuable project T&M but it's an expensive configuration of conventional test instruments and does not lend itself to providing each "Maker" participant with a personal test and exercise platform; thus, the transition to the Analog Discovery 2.


1. Do any of you fellows have or use a "Diigilent Analog Discovery (older version) or Analog Discovery 2 (new version) instrument? {or - Does your kid use one at school?}

2. Would you be interested in sharing your experiences with this instrument and relevant algorithms, etc.?

3. Also, we have a private (secure) network group dedicated to E3G design and are adding a "Test Set" component to that group if anyone is seriously interested and is in a position to contribute. [PM]

4. Any other constructive ideas, suggestions and comments?

BTW; We are still on-track for a June/July "project" release (pending validation, peer reviews and such).

Also, try looking into a local "Maker" or similar groups - can almost garantee you'll be very surprised and impressed (if you haven't done so already)!

Thanks and have a good week!


Full Disclosure:   We have no affiliation with Digilent, or any related entities, what so ever; other than being a full price, paying customer (no student discounts, nor free-be's).

Of Note (with respect to research sources) - Leave no stone unturned, so to speak!

Not all sources are equal, even when they appear to refer to the same thing. For example:

Wikipedia RU versus EN - "Displacement Current" [using Chrome browser for both + translate, if needed]

Reviewing these similar sounding sites (Wikipedia) for the same subject reveals two somewhat different takes on the definition. E.G.:

RU Version: "Displacement Current"

This term has other meanings, see Bias Current .

The bias current , or absorption current , is a quantity directly proportional to the rate of change of electrical induction . This concept is used in classical electrodynamics . Introduced by J. K. Maxwell in constructing the theory of the electromagnetic field.

The introduction of the bias current eliminated the contradiction [1] in the Ampere formula for the circulation of the magnetic field , which, after adding the bias current there, became inconsistent and compiled the last equation, which allowed to correctly close the system of equations (classical) electrodynamics.

The existence of a bias current also follows from the law of conservation of electric charge [2] .
Strictly speaking, the bias current is not an electric current [3] , but is measured in the same units as the electric current.

EN Version: "Displacement Current"

This article is about electric displacement current. For magnetic displacement current, see Magnetic current § Magnetic displacement current.

In electromagnetism, displacement current density is the quantity ∂D/∂t appearing in Maxwell's equations that is defined in terms of the rate of change of D, the electric displacement field. Displacement current density has the same units as electric current density, and it is a source of the magnetic field just as actual current is. However it is not an electric current of moving charges, but a time-varying electric field. In physical materials (as opposed to vacuum), there is also a contribution from the slight motion of charges bound in atoms, called dielectric polarization.

The idea was conceived by James Clerk Maxwell in his 1861 paper On Physical Lines of Force, Part III in connection with the displacement of electric particles in a dielectric medium. Maxwell added displacement current to the electric current term in Ampère's Circuital Law. In his 1865 paper A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field Maxwell used this amended version of Ampère's Circuital Law to derive the electromagnetic wave equation. This derivation is now generally accepted as a historical landmark in physics by virtue of uniting electricity, magnetism and optics into one single unified theory. The displacement current term is now seen as a crucial addition that completed Maxwell's equations and is necessary to explain many phenomena, most particularly the existence of electromagnetic waves.

Oddly enough, maybe (?), my preference is the RU version.

This version also cites a reference of interest near the end regarding "Displacement current and charge conservation - The drama of ideas in the knowledge of nature" by Ya.B. Zeldovich, M.Yu. Khlopov, 1988

where the last sentence states; "But the most important role of bias current is probably ahead."

Gorchilin also pursues the subject in four pages here:

More than we wanted to know, right? - Have a good one...!

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
