2021 ENERGY SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE

“Every living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe.” – Tesla

Adrian Marsh was originally trained in the 1980s as an electronic engineer specializing in RF, microwave, and solid state technologies. Early research projects included the practical design and implementation of a cryogenically cooled microwave linear amplifier for mm-wave astronomical applications, and practical research in the electromagnetic properties of the high-gain cross-field antenna. These early research projects included comprehensive training and experience in a wide range of measurement techniques using sophisticated equipment, including network and impedance analysis, RF power measurement, and time-domain reflectometry.
In the 1990s Adrian joined the Microelectronics Research Centre, at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University to firstly develop cryogenic integrated linear amplifiers for satellite and astronomical applications. This quickly gave way to a fascination in researching solid state quantum effect devices including, the quantum hall effect, ballistic coherent electron conduction, nano-scale charging, and most importantly the coherent conduction of electric super-current in superconductor-semiconductor junctions; the first steps to the development of superconducting, zero resistance, transistors. These research activities in collaboration with Hitachi, led to seminal research on the superconducting transistor, and a number of patents on the implementation and application of the superconductor-semiconductor junction to high-speed computing and communications.
In the late 1990s and into the new millennium decade Adrian researched, invented, and developed a number of medical devices, including the delta laser, a low level laser therapy device, which integrates coherently four different radiances: infra-red laser light, multi-colour led light, ultrasonics, and magnetics. Adrian was a founder member of the company Radiant Life Technologies Ltd which worked to patent, prototype, and manufacture the delta laser into a number of different successful commercial products.
In 1999 Adrian became interested in the new energy field, and in particular the work of Tesla, Eric Dollard, and Edwin Gray, which triggered the search for a deeper understanding of the underlying practical mechanisms of electricity, both scientific and esoteric. What followed was a fascinating journey of discovery as he sought to understand and replicate the research, demonstrations, and measurements of key experimenters in the field at the time.
In 2003 Adrian established his own self-funded, not-for-profit, research company called AMInnovations, whose primary research activity to date is in the “Displacement and Transference of Electric Power”. Research into displacement of electric power attempts to understand the underlying coherent mechanisms of electricity, which appear to stem from the inclusive and inter-dependent relationship between the electric and magnetic fields of induction, and their balance and equilibrium throughout the common medium. To date, a lot of as yet unreported research has been undertaken by Adrian and co-workers at AMInnovations, and this is progressively being released in the form of online posts and video experiments on his website. Displacement of electric power, and associated theories and principles, remain Adrian’s primary research interest and work in progress.

PRESENTATION: ADVANCED MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES FOR TESLA COILS – DEMONSTRATION INCLUDED – Building, operating, and optimising a working Tesla magnifying transmitter (TMT) power transmission system for the maximum transfer of electric power with minimum loss, requires detailed measurement, tuning, and accurate generator and load matching. Measurement of such a TMT system in the frequency domain, using affordable yet sophisticated equipment such as a vector network analyser, can reveal a wealth of important experimental data. Properly interpreted, this data can show how best to operate and tune the system, as well as revealing a deeper understanding of how these fascinating electrical systems work.
Network analysis is a vast and complex subject which has classically involved considerable training, an established background in electrical engineering, combined with very expensive equipment. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce this advanced measurement technique in a simple and practical fashion with equipment affordable to the individual researcher, experimenter, or inventor.
The presentation, which includes a practical demonstration, is intended to lead the participant through the steps necessary to gain a working understanding of using a vector network analyser, and to characterise the small signal impedance characteristics with frequency for a Tesla coil, and hence for a complete working TMT system. The presentation and demonstration includes:

  1. An introduction to the basic principles of network analysis.
  2. An introduction to the basic properties of Tesla coils, including resonance, coupling, tuning, and matching generators and loads.
  3. Taking a look at equipment suited to this measurement technique both at the high-end, and the affordable end, with a comparison of the range of measurements available from both, and the likely accuracy and limitations which they present.
  4. How to calibrate, setup, and prepare a network analyser to measure a Tesla coil.
  5. How to make impedance measurements over a frequency band, and interpret the meaning of the measured results.
  6. Impedance measurement comparison under different operating conditions, including the effects of coupling, primary and secondary coil tuning, and loading.
  7. How to identify the best points of operation from the measurements, and then optimise the system for the maximum transference of electric power.
  8. How to match a generator to a Tesla coil using the measured impedance characteristics.
  9. A live measurement demonstration using the complete transmitter coil from a working TMT system, and connected to a portable and affordable vector network analyser.

Eric Dollard is an Electrical Engineer who is a “living legend” in the field of electrical research. He is considered by many to be the most knowledgeable expert alive today on the true nature of electricity. Author of the landmark mathematical papers Symbolic Representation of Alternating Electric Waves and Symbolic Representation of the Generalized Electric Wave, Eric shows how all electric phenomena can be mathematically measured and engineered WITHOUT using calculus or “Maxwell’s Equations.” Author of Condensed Intro to Tesla Transformers and Theory of Wireless Power, he is also the only person since Tesla’s death to successfully build a real Magnifying Transmitter. His last several conference presentations are Four Quadrant Representation of Electricity, The Extraluminal Transmission Systems of Tesla & Alexanderson & The Power of the Aether as Related to Music and Electricity, The Musical Seismograph. & History, Theory & Practice of the Electrical Utility System. Last year, he gave a presentation on Nikola Tesla’s Colorado Springs Transformer and demonstrated a 20:1 scale model – this was THE definitive presentation ever given on the subject.

PRESENTATION: FORTESCUE PART 2 – DELTA & WYE ELECTRIC POWER CONFIGURATIONS – This is an extension of last year’s (2020) Fortescue presentation. Last year’s presentation is now being applied to the analysis of Delta to Wye and Wye to Delta transformations in 3-Phase power systems. The representations that are commonly taught in engineering curriculums will be found to be in error. Also, to be presented will be the undesirability of the Wye connected power system, which is finding wide-spread use.

PRESENTATION – THE BORDERLAND OF NIKOLA TESLA’S RESONANT TRANSFORMER – This is a very complex project with an audio rack and RF rack. They can be used independently or together for a variety of different experiments. We do not know how much we can demonstrate but we will do as much as possible with the time we have. We plan to show a large high fidelity flame speaker and will try to demonstrate the CIG plasma formations in a bulb. There are some ground transmission experiments we may attempt but depends on what we can finish in time for the conference. We’ll bring the equipment to the conference to show the setup up close and whatever we do not finish for the conference, we’ll continue to complete the project and will demonstrate it on video. We will probably invite anyone that wants to come for later demonstrations in the Spokane and CDA area. More videos and pics of our progress will be posted on an ongoing basis. THIS IS THE STATE OF THE ART as far as Eric Dollard’s knowledge is concerned. This project will have the consideration of everything Eric knows about this kind of technology.

Wizard of Electrical Circuits Invented Valve

Nikola Tesla, the eccentric inventor is probably best known for inverting AC-current, which is widely used in just about every home today. He was said to be able to completely design a circuit or system in his head without putting pen to paper, and also make corrections before making a prototype.

One of his lesser-know invenstions is his Tesla valve.

He has long been recognized for a body of work that ranges from brilliant (AC electricity) to baffling (an “earthquake machine”?). Scientists have studied one of his lesser-known inventions in new detail, and they think they may have found new uses for it in the modern world.

Tesla’s macrofluidic valve — often just called the Tesla valve — is a sort of odd-shaped conduit for fluids in which a main channel is interspersed with a series of diverting teardrop-shaped loops. The loops are oriented in such a way that fluids easily flow through in one direction, but when reversed, the flow is almost totally blocked.

In other words, it can be thought of as a sort of one-way or check valve, which anyone who has done a fair amount of plumbing or work with pumps will be familiar with. The advantage of Tesla’s design is it has no moving parts that can wear out like the springs and other mechanisms on conventional check valves.

“While Tesla is known as a wizard of electric currents and electrical circuits, his lesser-known work to control flows or fluid currents was truly ahead of its time,” explained Leif Ristroph, an associate professor at New York University’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, in a statement.

Ristoph is senior author on a new paper in Nature Communications that looks more deeply into how the Tesla valve works and how it might be used in the 21st century. By experimenting with replicas of the valve, which was patented in 1920, the researchers found that the flow-blocking capabilities of the valve “turn on” by creating turbulence and swirling vortices in the conduit at a certain rate of flow.

Comparison of flows in the reverse direction (right to left) at three different speeds. The water current is visualized with green and blue dyes, showing that the flows are increasingly disrupted at higher speeds.

“Moreover, the turbulence appears at far lower flow rates than have ever previously been observed for pipes of more standard shapes — up to 20 times lower speed than conventional turbulence in a cylindrical pipe or tube,” Ristoph adds. “This shows the power it has to control flows, which could be used in many applications.”

Even more interesting, the valve actually works better with a flow that is not steady but instead comes in pulses or oscillations. This could make it ideal for use in high-vibration environments.

Tesla Free Energy Physics

Ambient back scatter enables wireless communication by leveraging the signals all around us, instead of wasting power generating our own. Two devices which need to communicate can send messages between themselves by absorbing of reflecting signals from a nearby TV or microwave tower. By choosing to either reflect or absorb signals in a binary fashion, they can communicate wirelessly. No RF signals are generated, and no batteries needed – ambient backscatter enables wireless communication out of thin air.

Ambient Backscatter transforms existing wireless signals into both a source of power and a communication medium. It enables two battery-free devices to communicate by backscattering existing wireless signals. Backscatter communication is orders of magnitude more power-efficient than traditional radio communication. Further, since it leverages the ambient RF signals that are already around us, it does not require a dedicated power infrastructure as in RFID.

Free Electric Energy with Ambient Backscatter

What if you could power your iPhone from thin air? Making wires redundant was one of Nikola Tesla’s biggest dreams – a dream University of Washington researchers want to fulfill with PoWiFi.

University of Washington engineers have created a new wireless communication system that allows devices to interact with each other without relying on batteries or wires for power.

The new communication technique, which the researchers call “ambient backscatter,” takes advantage of the TV and cellular transmissions that already surround us around the clock. Two devices communicate with each other by reflecting the existing signals to exchange information. The researchers built small, battery-free devices with antennas that can detect, harness and reflect a TV signal, which then is picked up by other similar devices.

The technology could enable a network of devices and sensors to communicate with no power source or human attention needed.

“We can repurpose wireless signals that are already around us into both a source of power and a communication medium,” said lead researcher Shyam Gollakota, a UW assistant professor of computer science and engineering. “It’s hopefully going to have applications in a number of areas including wearable computing, smart homes and self-sustaining sensor networks.”

The researchers published their results at the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Data Communication 2013 conference in Hong Kong, which began Aug. 13. They have received the conference’s best-paper award for their research.

“Our devices form a network out of thin air,” said co-author Joshua Smith, a UW associate professor of computer science and engineering and of electrical engineering. “You can reflect these signals slightly to create a Morse code of communication between battery-free devices.”

Smart sensors could be built and placed permanently inside nearly any structure, then set to communicate with each other. For example, sensors placed in a bridge could monitor the health of the concrete and steel, then send an alert if one of the sensors picks up a hairline crack. The technology can also be used for communication – text messages and emails, for example – in wearable devices, without requiring battery consumption.

The researchers tested the ambient backscatter technique with credit card-sized prototype devices placed within several feet of each other. For each device the researchers built antennas into ordinary circuit boards that flash an LED light when receiving a communication signal from another device.

Groups of the devices were tested in a variety of settings in the Seattle area, including inside an apartment building, on a street corner and on the top level of a parking garage. These locations ranged from less than half a mile away from a TV tower to about 6.5 miles away.

They found that the devices were able to communicate with each other, even the ones farthest from a TV tower. The receiving devices picked up a signal from their transmitting counterparts at a rate of 1 kilobit per second when up to 2.5 feet apart outdoors and 1.5 feet apart indoors. This is enough to send information such as a sensor reading, text messages and contact information.

It’s also feasible to build this technology into devices that do rely on batteries, such as smartphones. It could be configured so that when the battery dies, the phone could still send text messages by leveraging power from an ambient TV signal.

The applications are endless, the researchers say, and they plan to continue advancing the capacity and range of the ambient backscatter communication network.

The other researchers involved are David Wetherall, a UW professor of computer science and engineering, Vincent Liu, a doctoral student in computer science and engineering, and Aaron Parks and Vamsi Talla, both doctoral students in electrical engineering.

The research was funded by the University of Washington through a Google Faculty Research Award and by the National Science Foundation’s Research Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the UW.

AC Electric Generator

Nikola Tesla was born in the middle of a lightning storm 158 years ago today. The 20th century visionary competed with Thomas Edison and had a long list of inventions to his name: the Tesla coil, alternating current electricity, an electric motor, radio, X-rays and envisioning of the first smartphone technology in 1901.

One of Tesla’s most ambitious projects was Wardenclyffe Tower on Long Island, New York. Tesla envisioned a 187-foot tall tower that would transmit free electricity across the Atlantic, with no wires.

But J.P. Morgan, Tesla’s then-business partner, cut off funding for the project before it could be completed and tested. Tesla sought European funders, but the Wardenclyffe Tower was never fully operational. It was demolished in 1917.

Today, two Russian physicists — brothers Leonid and Sergey Plekhanov — are raising money to resurrect Tesla’s ambitious project, Reuters reports. Leonid Plekhanov and Sergey Plekhanov have spent the last five years studying and modeling Tesla’s notes and patents for the tower and they are certain the project is viable with the use of modern materials and technology. After scrutinizing Tesla’s diaries and plans, the Plekhanovs believe that with modern solar panels, lighter building materials and $800,000, they can rebuild Wardenclyffe Tower.

Russian Scientists to Rebuild Tesla Tower, Satisfy World Energy Hunger!

“We’ve conducted the fundamental research studies, implemented the computational models and designed all the parts of the experiment. We will be able to perform energy transmission and measure the results. Will it be ‘global’ as Tesla suggested? Based on the research that we’ve already done – we believe it will be, and we going to prove it experimentally,” the scientists wrote.

The Plekhanovs’ research estimates that an approximately 38,000 square mile installation of solar panels in a desert near the equator could generate enough power to serve the world’s electricity needs. Tesla’s tower could deliver that energy to consumers, but the only way to test the concept is to build it and find out, they say.

The brothers are raising funds for the project via an IndieGogo kickstarter campaign. As of this publication, they have raised over $33,000, or about 4 percent of their goal. (For a donation of $750, you can have your name engraved on the tower when it is finished.)

Critics say there are numerous engineering flaws to the brothers’ plan. Solar panels are still costly, and some estimate that the proposed solar panel field would cost $20 trillion — and that’s without the transmitting tower.
