Subject: Fw: ideas
Hi George, I have a couple of ideas if they are feasible would make millions of dollars.. First idea Others probably thought of this too. If technology exits build an alternator or generator for electric powered cars, which would keep the batteries fully charged while the car was being driven. The other idea. There is a lot of water pressure going through the radiator hoses. If and attachment could be built with an impeller inside and hooked into big radiator hose.a generator could be built to generate
power. another idea if something could be built to generate power from wheels turning while vehicle is moving. Any comments
HAPPY NEW YEAR George
Hi George C.
Always good to hear from you, and since there are so many who seem to have the same ideas as you do, I’ve decided to make a post at utterpower about same.
All we really need to do is focus on the fact that there is friction and losses to be summed on our balance sheet as well as energy potential we see.
One of the first experiments and notations many of us made as kids is riding our bicycle off the top of one hill, and seeing that we don’t make it up the next hill nearly as far, it was proof of those losses, stand up on the pedals and your coast was even shorter.
I can remember turning around a number of times, and attempting to make a rough estimate of just how much lower I was on the next hill after trying to wring out every foot of distance I could travel down the hill and up the other side, I’d tuck in tight, and attempt to be as streamlined as possible (reduce losses).
It seems we all develop our own special talents, and as an example; some of us are highly focused on getting the King’s English perfect, but have never pondered why water runs down hill.
I remember discussing an idea with a trained Physicist about an idea that borders on yours, he gave it a moment’s thought, and I think it embarrassed him, but it was evidence that we can deceive ourselves regardless of training by not taking a moment to do the basic math.
Perhaps the best examples I can give you is an electric motor driving an electric generator. What happens when we attempt to have one drive the other? All we need do is inventory the losses, the generator might be 80% efficient, that means, we get 20% less energy out as we put in. Since the Motor is similar as per efficiency, we should expect to lose another 2o percent there. So imagine using an external source of power to bring the paired motor generator up to speed, as soon as you remove the power, the losses will drag the motor generator to a halt. It’s not the energy potential you need to account for, but the losses.
Now back to that car idea, when you go down the road, and your alternator is charging the battery, the engine must work harder to charge the battery, fact is, the energy losses are staggering! In a typical auto, we can measure the energy content of the fuel, and note that we only recover 30 percent of that energy in the twisting force that turns the car’s alternator, but we have to account for the additional losses inside that alternator, and also for the losses in converting that energy back into an electrical charge in the battery. These are all losses that guarentee you will never break even, but there’s even more, we have additional losses when we pull the electrical energy out of the battery to drive the fan motor, or attempt to use the energy to power the car.
Now consider mounting a big wind turbine in the back of a pick up.. What ever power you get out of it will be heavily taxed by the losses (wind resistance) and you are guaranteed loses instead of gains.
I Think about 40 percent of the people on the planet believe there’s a free lunch in energy, and if you go to YouTube you can spend all day reviewing scam artists, and even a few that deceive themselves by not making an inventory of the losses.
Some of these ‘Loss Deniers’ have risen to high places in political office, some who believe in free energy (over unity) also believe in free money. Let’s take Pelosi for instance, she ‘really’ believes that taking money from California tax payers and giving it to others to spend is good for the economy, there are no losses on her balance sheet.. only gains 🙂
At the end of the day, we note that up to 40 percent of the population might believe in free energy, but unlike you, there are many that want to believe so badly that Evil Corporations are the only thing standing between them and the free living they deserve.
Google up the HOJO generator if you want a taste of how unscrupulous people are… some would sell their mothers into prostitution to make a profit, it reminds me of Career Politicians.
One more thought, there’s plenty of useful idiots out there that lead us to think there’s a free ride in energy, and some of them have been very successful in other endeavors, (basic physics is certainly not their strong suits). Take for instance Danny Devito, and Tom Hanks, they are tied to the totally stupid “who killed the electric car fiasco”. Most who take the time to study EVs know that the lack of buyers has been killing EV production since the Bell Electric, not the Government, or Big Oil 🙂 Ask the guy that demands taxpayers fund EV development….. why he doesn’t own one?
All the best,
