The machine which I am attempting to construct is comprised mainly of 2 identical electric motors, one above the other, and rotating in opposite directions. The rotors are a little unusual in that they are to be built as levitating rings
. There is no output shaft
. The purpose of each motor/rotor is to create a strong magnetic field, or Dynamic Gravitational Field around the machine, when the magnetic fields of the stationary levitational magnets interact with the rapidly rotating magnetic fields of the rotor's levitational magnets . The rotor may need a rotational velocity of about 450 meters / second, the same as our planet's equatorial velocity, although Godin & Roschin
achieved a 35% reduction in weight at only about 10 meters per second.
The reason for the second counter rotating rotor is for stability, and hopefully to create an even more powerful field.
To drive the ring, I have found a washing machine motor which may serve my purpose. It is a permanent magnet stepper motor, but I would only require the spin capability. This motor is readily available from worn out Fisher & Paykel Smartdrive
clothes washing machines which are very popular, and available in many countries including the USA. These motors are very strong, and are seldom the reason for a machine being discarded. The motor is entirely electronically controlled. These discarded motors are also in demand for small wind and hydro power generators.
of this motor is comprised of 42 radial coils, forming a diameter of about 250mm. The 42 coils are in a 3 phase configuration, each phase having 14 coils in series. I intend to cut these stators into individual coils, and reconfigure them into whatever diameter ring I settle on.
is comprised of 14 magnets, each of which has 4 poles, set out N S N S, so the whole rotor therefor has 56 magnets alternating in the same way. I was going to attempt to cut these magnets into 4 individual magnets, and see if the poles remained the same, but I have found some early model rotors with 56 individual magnets
, possibly rare earth type.
