# Free energy generators

11 Steps
This instructable is my third instructable and it is about making free energy generators. Now, if you are some of those stubborn people that don't think this is true or that it works, GO LOOK AT SOMETHING ELSE because this is not for you. So a little background on the guy I used for a picture: his name is Nikola Tesla, he was born on July 10 1856, he died on January 7 1943, he was born in the Austrian empire. Nikola was also the world's leading scientist and continues to be today despite what anyone else says. Unfortunately, after he died, the big electricity companies almost wiped Nikola from history because of his free electricity inventions. If you want to know more, read the book: Tesla a man out of time.

## Step 1: Components and parts

The main components are listed below, take note that the kind of the specific components are listed in the assembly part.

Components:
-electrolytic capacitors
-ceramic capacitors
-diodes
-antenna*
-ground connection

You can assemble these generators on a bread board or solder the pieces.
*the construction of the antenna is the next step, though it has to be built in a certain way

Take a building block of a bridge rectifier.Place high voltage capacitors to the ac input terminals,these will also be your collector inputs .Start with a group of 3.Tesla loved to use multiples of 3.A clue to the power of 3 is
3-6-9
1-2-3 That's all I have to say about that right now other than three is a fundamental number.

On the first bridge + output will go to your load capacitor.
I do not recommend using electrolytic capacitors at all.They just don't have enough electrostatic capabilities.
now connect - bridge1 to + bridge2 and - bridge2 to + bridge3 - bridge 3 will be your - load connection unless you use more blocks,in that case -bridge 3 will connect to module2 + bridge1 and so on.
Remember to place isolation capacitors on all ac in bridges and parallel connect those caps.
You now have a circuit of 3 series connected bridge rectifiers that + comes from bridge 1 and - comes from bridge 3
You can continue to series connect these building blocks in any quantity you choose.The first bridge will always be + output and the last will always be - output.
Although I have not done this, it is said that about 200 of these modules will power a house providing your collector plate is large enough and your dedicated ground is proper.That's 800 individual diodes and 400 individual isolation capacitors plus a load bank of capacitors or batteries, and as large a collector plate as possible,don't forget about the earth ground it's a key element to success.
My plan is to incorporate this into a multi floor(at least 2 story)building with an insulated metal roof.
I have a circuit board I'm developing and maybe one day I will post it.

WHOA! 200 to power a house?!?!?! I've never seen one of these things give more than 0.5 watts! Not to mention there is only so many EM waves in one area, so unless you live next to the local radio mega-station, you won't get much power.

what do you mean by isolation capacitors friend? also , parallel connect those caps? did u get this idea from http://www.free-energy-info.co.uk/Chapt7.html? how is your project coming? :)

Sorry, but this is small scale only.
jblanchard in reply to techno guyJul 7, 2011. 12:59 PM
@techno guy -just because you limit yourself why should we
@hifiman- awsome my thoughts exact

Diodes themselves have a resistance (very small, but they do) so they would drop the voltage slightly. Since the capacitor is polar (only works one way around), then surely you don't need them. To me this is just #1 but with two unnecessary components.

If there is someone out there with more electrical knowledge than me, please correct me here.
AlbinoMoose308 in reply to sdfgeoffMar 3, 2013. 6:21 PM
the goal of the diodes is to block one half of the radio waves in the air so they can charge the capacitor

Well done for having the insight and curiousity to try this out.
Unfortunately, you have confused two different effects here and both are well understood by science. The first is that the earth is surrounded by the ionosphere which is a highly charged shell of atoms and molecules surrounding the earth; it starts at a height of around 50miles and is at a potential of around 300000V. There have been proposals that power could be tapped from this. In fact, what you have created is a working but inefficient self powered radio receiver which in the 1930s they would have called a crystal set. In effect you have rectified the many signals in the radio environment around your antenna and converted it into the dc current that charged your capacitor. The square arrangement of diodes that you've drawn is called a bridge rectifier and is a commonly available component.

If you want to make your circuit more efficient then I suggest that you look at using schottky diodes and a low leakage capacitor otherwise charging your capacitor is like trying to fill a bucket with a hole in it.

Since the sky gets charged, the ground also gets charged oppositely by laws of physics.

Um, explain this one to me.
If the air gets positively charged, then surely the ground also gets positively charged as there is a net decrease in electrons.

What you may be thinking of is if you have a closed system: If you move the electrons to one side, then that will create a positive charge on one side, and a negative one on the other.
This doesn't apply here as there is an addition of the solar wind (not a closed system), which by the way, according to wikipedia, has both protons and electrons, and thus no charge.

I'm not meaning to pick holes in your ible (ok, maybe I am), but would like to point these out, and that I don't agree with this.
I am not a physicist, so I may be wrong but:

My threory:

The facts:
+ve charge in the atmosphere
-ve charge in the ground (I agree with you here, I cannot deny it, because it works)

The Speculation:
The charge difference has to come from somewhere, and you suggested solar wind. I suggest a system similar to thunderstorms: Friction has the ability to knock electrons around. The direction of where the electrons go is determined by the elements electronegativity. Air, made up mostly of nitrogen, with a high electronegativity value of 3.006, and the ground (most other elements, like metals and such making up the ground) would have a much lower overall value.
What all that means is that when the air hits the ground (wind etc) some electrons are knocked out of the air, giving it a positive charge, and the ground a negative charge.

Anyone got any other theories?

Yes, that its radio/other electromagnetic waves below the IR spectrum. All electronics have a tiny signature, big things like power lines and cell towers much higher. It works because it acts like a cell phone/radio/whatever antenna. They take a teeny-tiny ammount of power at a specific frequency and amplify it, this takes a teeny bit of power from a lot of frequencies, and stores it so over time it charges a capacitor. That's why you get so little. Plus, EMPs from the sun, other stars, and the earths magnetic field may also play a part.

How can we up the scale to power a family home of a modest size?
tamaran says: Aug 24, 2012. 4:38 PM
I would like to make a sterling engine that i can power my house with.
I have read they are relatively simple to make even for the non engineer type.
my question is once built how is ones home electrical sockets, appliances and the like connected to use this energy?
do i hook up the engine to my fuse box?
or rewire the house?
juanvi in reply to tamaranAug 31, 2012. 2:56 PM
how are you going to do the sterling engine?
do you know sterling engines also need an energy source of some kind?
Stirling engines are not very efficient, thou fun to build and make them work with a candle
benji.abrams says: Feb 24, 2012. 11:54 PM
Look at what device #5 and a plasma ball can do here
paywithlove says: Jan 19, 2012. 8:37 PM
wasnt there a few people aware of this system by NT knew it was possible to scale it up in power and down in size? i think we all missing something important maybe.
itsthatsguy says: Jun 19, 2011. 10:15 PM
dude you just stole my ideas and findings, wtf, energy device 4 is described in MY instructable, and energy device 6 is described by me, in the comments of MY instructable, you even posted comments on it asking me questions, you cant just take other peoples ideas and work and say there your own, im reporting you to a moderator.

Check the publish dates if you guys dont believe me.
CirceWelder in reply to itsthatsguyJan 17, 2012. 8:29 PM
Yes I seen that as well he plagerized what you did, he even says thanks so he can use it in his IBLE. Some people cant think for themselves
techno guy (author) in reply to itsthatsguyJun 20, 2011. 2:45 PM
I got energy device 6 off the internet so not from your 'ible.
itsthatsguy in reply to techno guyJun 20, 2011. 4:07 PM
lol it doesnt matter who you got it from, it matters that you didnt give credit to anyone.
techno guy (author) in reply to itsthatsguyJun 24, 2011. 5:07 PM
There, i gave you credit for number four of the generators, but I´m not giving you credit for number 6 because I didn´t get it from your íble.

Tesla was a genius
I am one of his followers
Very true...

Would a spherical antenna do any better.
Super_Nerd in reply to Super_NerdSep 20, 2011. 4:51 PM
PS I like how you started.

"Now, if you are some of those stubborn people that don't think this is true or that it works, GO LOOK AT SOMETHING ELSE because this is not for you."
sdfgeoff in reply to Super_NerdDec 2, 2011. 10:28 PM
In general you want to have the most surface area possible (I think)
A sphere has the lowest surface area to volume size.

So no, a sphere is not the ideal shape.

Instead you want something that has a lot of surface area:
Corrugated iron roof (If it isn't grounded)
Heatsink
Bending the foil into fins, so you can fit more surface area into the same size.
etc.
Super_Nerd in reply to sdfgeoffDec 3, 2011. 5:12 AM
Thanks
Super_Nerd says: Sep 20, 2011. 7:31 PM
Another indoor way. Attach a loop of wire to a sink faucet or metal pipe.
freethetech says: May 7, 2011. 8:29 AM
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the circuit (minus the antenna) used to convert AC to DC? 99% sure it is.
HiFiMan in reply to freethetechJun 19, 2011. 9:29 PM
Yes it's called a bridge rectifier.
freethetech in reply to HiFiManJun 19, 2011. 10:19 PM
Thats what I thought. It seemed fimiliar.
techno guy (author) in reply to freethetechMay 13, 2011. 12:21 PM
This is the circuit used to do that, I made the prototype using the converter from a wall adapter, it really works for this.
jduffy54 in reply to techno guyJan 22, 2013. 2:15 PM
Soooooo, you didn't design it. You literally just took off the transformer and called it your design. Don't say that.

Second of all,my grandmother could make this, its something someone with zero experience can understand.

Oh, also, power companies DIDN'T try to wipe Tesla, as there is NO SUCH THING AS FREE (significant) ENERGY!
This uses radio, micro, and other waves that are in the air from cell phones, wi-fi, and other wireless communications to power it. It's free to you, not to the planet though, it still requires power generation elsewhere. It's also not significant. It's like saying that the power companies are trying to discredit the existence of humans becasue of the tiny ammout of elecrtical potential generated by your body.
electronicz in reply to jduffy54Feb 28, 2013. 6:58 PM
If it is so that the energy that this harvests is from radio waves, how did Tesla use this system before the radio was even widely used???
freethetech in reply to electroniczFeb 28, 2013. 7:07 PM
Radio waves are naturally emitted. Also, note the above poster's other sources he mentioned.
electronicz in reply to freethetechFeb 28, 2013. 9:07 PM
Thanks for clarifying.
jduffy54 in reply to freethetechFeb 28, 2013. 8:37 PM
Plus, even those still aren't technically free energy, it's free- to- you- energy, and finially, his main thing in wireless power was using frequency-matched tesla coils to transmit the power. These would still require power, it would just be wireless.
electronicz in reply to jduffy54Feb 28, 2013. 9:11 PM
Yes, it still is fun to do just as an experiment (not to create any significant power though).
