I have open the file about Hans Coler - Stromerzeuger because it
seems to get energy from permanent magnets at ~ 180 khz. As usual I have ask Simon
Derricutt for his opinion, before doing something else:
Chava were interested in Coler, and I'd be surprised if they haven't tested it. They
seem to accept that there was no fraud involved, but AFAIK they haven't managed to
replicate the stated results or even any hint that there is anything anomalous.
I can't see any source for the energy it was supposed to output - this seems
to be something that is supposed to create energy, and isn't collecting energy from
some known stream. As such, I don't hold out much hope of it actually working and
producing energy at all. The 180kHz frequency stated is also somewhat odd, since if
there was any strange thing happening with magnets at that frequency then it would
have been noticed somewhere else.
As far as I can tell the Robert Norrby method
doesn't work, so there's not a lot of point in trying to work out how it works. It has
a patent, but that only tells you that it seems to be a novel idea, not that it works.
If it worked, then Norrby would have sold the devices and made a lot of money. That
As I see it, permanent magnets will not be able to generate
energy unless you put the mechanical energy in to move them in relation to some wires.
If you don't move the wires relative to the magnets, you get nothing out.
only magnetic-based system that seems to have worked (in that it was checked by a
number of people) was that of
Sweet. Although the precise
mechanism by which it worked isn't certain, the temperature of the block was around
10°C less than ambient and the
output was around 100W, and
Sweet used it to charge his
car. There is a source for the energy obviously there (flow of ambient energy inwards)
so although it's not known how it worked I can accept that it may have worked.
is the guy to talk to about this, since he ended up with the apparatus but no
instructions on how to make it work. It seems to be based on magnetic refrigeration
effects, which rectified the random energy of heat. Obviously violates 2LoT. Then
again, using a strong-enough field has the capacity to violate 2LoT, and to produce
more order than disorder.
It's obviously your decision as to whether it's worth
experimenting with Coler's or Norrby's devices. Personally I think they didn't work.
The question to ask is whether they got hotter or colder when working (and of course
how that was measured). If they got colder, then there's a source of energy visible
even if you don't know how it was converted to usable power. If they got hotter, then
it's almost certainly a fraud or a measurement error.
