Transformers And Magnetism

Electricity is generated by passing copper wire or coils past permanent magnets.  Physicists and engineers look at this as the most basic concept of electrical generation and they have moved forward to bigger and better things.  Ie., using that electricity in amazing ways.  There’s no denying we have done some amazing things with electricity.

But the engineers left the electrical generation just as it is, leaving it alone to become the same basic principle that it was 200 years ago.  Simply passing copper past magnets.  And now engineers think that electricity can only be generated that way.    And thusly they discourage research into the field of zero-point energy.  In fact they use “laws” and “rules” they’ve established to deny zero point energy can be obtained.  But their “laws” nd “rules” pertain only to what they know about electrical generation.  In other words, they may feel that they have found a way to make electricity, therefore there is no other way.

What is zero-point energy?  For electricity it involves the generation of electricity without using any fuels or motion to achieve that.  You see, today’s electricity comes from burning massive amounts of hydrocarbon fuels,  dangerous nuclear materials, or natural waterfalls that turn the turbines which pass the copper past the magnets.  Solar panels can be seen as zero point energy devices.  They are massively inefficient currently, and so engineers can still scoff at them and deny that zero point energy indeed exists.

Take a look at this simple example of how electricity is currently generated:

Notice that the copper wire passes by the north pole and south pole of the wire at the same time.  Then it reverses to the opposite.  The number of times it does this per second is called frequency, or Hertz.  The average electrical grid in the USA runs at about 60 Hertz. The outgoing wires don’t show it going to a load, but lets assume those wires go to your house to run your vacuum cleaner.

In fact, the motor in your vacuum can be illustrated by the same diagram.  That’s because generators and motors are just about identical.  Your motor works the opposite of how the generator is working.  When the north side of the generator wire is at the south of the motor wire, (and vice versa for the other wire,) the motor’s copper wire, called a rotor, will turn by repulsion and attraction to the opposite side.  Repulsion and attraction are definitely attributes we define within magnets.  For the most parts scientists don’t know how repulsion or attraction works.  (And really it’s not attraction and repulsion – but that’s good enough for now.)  The only thing scientists know is that if the copper stops moving then electricity stops flowing through it.

In fact, copper must indeed pass through a  magnetic field in order to pass electricity.  If you leave the copper wire stationary between north and south poles then it becomes saturated by the magnet.  The electrical charge only happens in the first 10 milliseconds or so when the copper is moved into the field of both magnets.  A spike can be seen for that small instant in time, but if the copper doesn’t continue moving then it will become saturated by the magnet.  The cool thing about copper is that it can unsaturate itself to receive the next magnetic pulse in far less than it takes for the rotor to reach the next magnet.

And so basic AC electricity is really just pulses of magnetic repulsing and attraction along a conduit.  When we start to see electricity this way, it is much easier to understand the ways that electricity acts.  It’s also easier to understand that the entire universe is just one big cloud of magnetism, and that magnetism is the core of every living and non-living substance in the universe.  These are the things that Nicola Tesla understood.

Now to transformers.  Transformers are coils of wire usually wound around other coils of wire.  The little things scientists call electrons (and I prefer to call magnetic pulses) can actually jump through the insulation of the primary wire and then through the insulation of the secondary wire to pass itself to the secondary wire.  Which is pretty cool.  But because it is in a coil, the primary electrons are jumping into itself in the primary wire as well, and that causes a myriad of things to happen, most notably eddy currents, which can be helpful to develop expanding and contracting magnetic fields within and without the coil.

Someone recently suggested that the expanding fields of a transformer might be Tesla’s secret to zero point energy.  And I must agree with our scientists on this.  I don’t believe transformers will ever compose the base of zero point energy system.  You would need to take more energy out than is put in, and a transformer is not capable of that.  At least in my current view.

However, passing copper past stationary magnets is not the only way to create electricity.  You can also pass the magnet’s poles past stationary copper.  Both ways currently require hydrocarbon fuels or other inefficient power methods to achieve this movement.  But if we focus on the magnet itself I’m certain we can find a way to expand and retract the magnets poles to stationary copper that requires less amperage in than amperage out.  And while that expanding and contracting is similar to that of a transformer, it is not the same.  At least that’s what I think as of today.  Tomorrow I’ll think something else maybe………
