Franklin was incredibly lucky to have survived his celebrated kite experiment. Thereafter a spark would jump from the high-voltage terminal to each passing thimble and impart to it a charge of the same polarity as that of the terminal.

Oleg D. Jefimenko – Wikipedia

The only essential metal parts are the electrodes and their interconnecting leads. Jefimenko has worked for the development of the theory of electromagnetic retardation and relativity.

Electrostatic motors are now classified in general by the method by which charge is either stored in the machine or transferred to the rotor.

We drilled slightly oversized holes in the corners of one side piece and carefully adjusted jefimeno the rotor was turning true in the slot. They can also operate from a variety of sources and range of voltages. At the University of West Virgina we saw a laboratory full of such exotic devices spinning, humming, and buzzing away like a swarm of bees.

The electret is oleeg on a four-millimeter shaft of plastic that turns in jeweled bearings. When the charged section of the rotor reaches the opposite electrode, another corona discharge reverses the polarity and starts the whole thing over again. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. He showed us motors that run on the voltage developed when you hold them in your hands and scuff across a carpet, and other heavier, more powerful ones that could do real work. It is conceivable that such motors could replace the complex installations now needed for converting the high-voltage d.


Inthe German physicist J. This limitation is circumvented by a novel electrostatic motor invented in by a Russian physicist, A.

The current was flowing from the generator through the air to where it was being picked up by the antenna. The discharge globes are traditional elwctrostatic high-voltage machines. Franklin charged his jars with an electrostatic generator. He received his M.

A recipe for electrostafic effective electret material is 45 percent carnauba wax, 45 percent water-white rosin and 10 percent white beeswax. In his opinion, there is no objective reason for abandoning Newton’s force-field gravitational theory in favor of a metric gravitational theory.

Jefimenko’s Electrostatic Motors & Heaviside’s Gravitational EM Analogy

Jefimenko posits the following Generalized Theory of Gravitation. So I go out on my step and what to my wondering eyes doth appear but the box from Amazon.

Elextrostatic is the ionosphere, the layer of ionized gas about 70 kilometers over our heads. Cut edges can be sanded so they have a white, frosted appearance that, in contrast with clear surfaces, gives your finished motor a sparkling, jewel-like appearance. An antenna consisting of a single point at the top of a foot wire could be expected to deliver about a microampere at 2, volts; the rate is equivalent to. You can measure this voltage with an earth-field antenna — a wire with a sharp point at the top to start a corona, or with a bit of radioactive materials that ionizes the air in its immediate vicinity.

Yet there it is, spinning merrily. Gubkin harnessed this effect to make a motor. Electrostatic motors are lighter than electromagnetic motors for the same output power since the motor occupies the entire volume. The air between is a rather poor insulator. Hook the other side of the motor to ground. According to Griffiths, Jefimenko currently submits one or two papers a week to American journals, gets okeg, then publishes them in Europe where review is apparently not as stringent.

At feet the rotor made between and revolutions per minute. Static balance was achieved by experimentally adding small bits of adhesive tape to the inner surface of the aluminum foil that lines the cylinder until the rotor remained stationary at all positions to which it was set by hand. The brushes are one-millimeter strips of kitchen aluminum foil.


Jefimenko thinks that earth-field antennas could be built to extract viable amounts of it. Instead of sandwiching the electret alternately between pairs of metal plates, Jefimenko employs opposing pairs of adjacent plates [see illustration at rightt]. Estimates of the stored energy range from a million kilowatts to a billion kilowatts.

loeg Retrieved from ” https: Drill and tap the acrylic and assemble parts with machine screws. The dynamic balancing, which is achieved largely by cut-and-try methods, took about as much time as the remainder of the construction.

So the rotor-electrode distance was constantly changing. Jefimenko jeifmenko his graduate students at West Virginia University. As it passed this second jar, a spark jumped again, depositing a new charge, and the whole repulsion-attraction cycle began again.

The effect, which is electrostagic known as St. The electret reacts to neighboring charges exactly as though it were a charged electrode, that is, it is physically attracted or repelled depending on the polarity of the neighboring electrode.

They have been studied extensively in recent years by Oleg D. At an altitude of meters the antenna should pick up some 20, volts.

Notify me of new comments via email. I made a corona motor with Plexiglas tubing two inches in diameter and one and a half inches long. Similar to a nuclear battery design of Dr. The adjacent plates are separated by a narrow slot. We had even more trouble with the octagonal-window machine. Such motors develop mechanical force through the interaction of magnetic fields that are generated with high electric current at low voltage, as Michael Faraday demonstrated in He received his Ph.

The performance of the motor easily met the design specifications.
