Some Recent Updated Tests of the Original Mini-MRA
I. Some Recent Updated Tests of the Original Mini-MRA
A fresh breadboard was assembled for these tests as shown in Figure (1). One change is that the circulating current sensing resistor RS was placed between the two reactances. Since strong scalar-type fields are believed to be generated by this circuitry, this position could be more balanced. At resonance, the generator line current would normally be determined by the remaining resistance in the line, since the line reactances are essentially cancelled out. This does not means that the reactive voltages and currents are not present --- they are! However, since the reactive voltages and currents are 90° out-of-phase, there is essentially no power losses (dissipation) in this line. Moreover, the reactive currents in a series circuit are in-phase and thus should appear as the circulatory current in the line. This could be directly measured by the sampling resistance RS, or also calculated from the measured voltage across, say resistance Li; e.g.,
Icirc = VL1 / XL1 = VL1 / 2?fL1 ~ 21.2 / 2545 ~ 8.3 mA
For the test of Table (1). The icirc as determined by the sampling resistor RS was about 5.8 mA as given in Table (1). The difference seen here might be due to the sensitivity of the scope probe to other scalar components present here. With a calculated line current (iG) of about 0.56 mA, it is seen that the circulating line current is more than 10X the generator current. Where does this excess current come from? It is my belief that the scalar-type flux being generated by the capacitance and inductor of this circuit may be 'interacting' with the aether (or some other aether-related fields) and thus, in effect, 'extracting' this additional flux energy. The generator is a source of the voltage (potential) to drive this series circuit, and thus the 'drive power' would be determined by the power dissipated in the generator resistive source impedance of about 5 KOhms, i.e., Pin = VG x iG. Again, remember that there are no real losses in the series circuit line due to the 90° phase difference between the reactive terms. However, the reactive power (or VAR) exists and it is of high magnitude. In this simple circuit, the high reactive voltage (potential) developed in L1 is transformed (and stepped down) in the secondary winding, L2. This stepped down voltage will now drive a real current in the 1 KOhm load resistance, RL, and thus real power is developed at the output. The use of resistive sources and loads in this circuitry will enable the calculation of true RMS powers since the voltages and currents are in-phase under such conditions.
The tests as given here continue to indicate real power gains for the Mini-MRA, even with calibrated oscilloscope tests. The use of digital-type meters (outside of their calibrated ranges in these tests) will not measure true RMS voltages and currents, but the power gains determined could be valid provided the waveforms are truly sinusoidal. Thus, these types of tests could be made by researchers with limited equipment and means. However, it must be emphasized that if phase-shift complications are to be avoided, the source and load must be resistive and the waveforms sinusoidal.
Finally, while the enclosed tests are believed to be valid, only more independent testing (possibly using other components) will really settle the issue of over-unity operation for MA-type devices. In the long run a 'stand-alone' operation will make any measurement questions moot! While my efforts are still quite limited, I will continue with that quest as time permits.
Meanwhile, good experimenting to all!
