Introduction: My Tesla's Radiant Energy Collector (open Project)

I did this experiment in February 2009. This device was invented to detect / collect "radiant energy" and convert it into electricity it was patented by Tesla in 1905 original patent: http://keelynet.com/tesla/00685958.pdf

My device not collect "radiant energy", it collect static electricity I just wanted to keep the name given to it by Tesla.

I explain how I built it, the results that I obtained. I hope that someone can improve it and get better results

This is a presentation video with a brief explanation of the operation at the end, follows the full explanation and test results on this Instructable

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gr5F2e595wo

The collector in aluminium collects the electrons of the air ionized, it work even with the passage of the clouds (if the air is dry), reached a sufficient charge it spark on candle and circulates the current in primary high-voltage of a injection coil, the secondary is connected via a diode and a small condenser, the small instruments notes the achieved energy.

Step 1: Equipment Required:

aluminum foil (cooking type is OK)
an ignition coil
a spark plug
a plug wire copper
a diode (general propose)
a capacitor 100nF-10uF not critical
an analog voltmeter
a support with a VERY high electrical insulation to support the aluminum foil (glass, ceramics ,plastic nylon wire)

Step 2: How to Build It:

Suspend the aluminum foil (at least 50 cm) the highest possible.
The first time I tried to suspend it on a pile of wood using the tape but it did not work until I replaced the pile of wood with a plastic rod. An easy way to see if it is a good insulator is to try if it holds the electrostatic charge

connect with a copper wire the aluminum foil to the metal base of the spark plug

connects the central electrode of the candle to the primary high voltage ignition coil

connects the negative of the ignition coil to the ground of a plug

connecting the plug to the electrical ground of your home, otherwise to a metal pole planted to the ground

one pole of the secondary low-voltage ignition coil must be connected to the negative pole of the voltmeter

the other pole of the secondary low-voltage ignition coil is connected through a diode to the positive pole of the voltmeter

Connect the capacitor at the poles of the voltmeter

See the schematic

Step 3: As Is Done (Video)

This video explains how the device is assembled
activated the annotations of the video for the description in English
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsDCLMNUO0k

unlike the original Tesla project I have not a capacitor mounted on the collector of aluminum, it should be very high voltage and low loss as a leida jar.
The alluminium foil has a capacity relation to the ground of 180pF

Step 4: Theory and Test

My theory
When the weather i changing the polarization of the clouds change the polarization of the earth below. and the ionization of air discharge through my device to the ground and viceversa when the clouds go away.
It should work olso with ionizing radiation and strong electromagnetic fields

When aluminium foil was parallel to the wall the package was attracted to the wall in a few seconds. It charge up fast because there are no capacitor on primary circuit, less charge more frequency. If I approach the electrodes frequency increases but the output voltage decreases. The video was recorded before a temporal I had gone to close the windows and I filmed. The device is in attic of my house to 10m from the ground. When its raining the device spark ever several minutes.

When it function alluminium foil voltage increase (I think for the ionization of air) accumulates charge and spark in One side high-voltage coil , the other side is connected to ground. creating on the secondary an electric pulse.

My device works occasionally when the weather changes, to obtain repeatable measurements I power it by an ioniser 4W isolated from ground.

The test results are in the video , is subtitled in English ( activate the function on youtube video player)

Step 5: Final Considerations

The device has not worked for days, until the first storm
It 'been replicated successfully by at least another Italian on the internet and there are many similar devices you can find a similar device http://www.xmx.it/energiadaaria.htm (only in italian)
The power is low and variable but can be a beginning
I have temporarily suspended the research
I hope someone finds a way to improve the performance of this device
tips are welcome

    lil note,the site is dead..
    Note = Nikola Tesla was right in pretty much everything regarding its experiment with electricity. reminder to all Nikola Tesla was the FIRST TO BUILD THE FIRST TO BUILD AN ELECTRIC CAR,BUILT IN 1898 AND REGISTERED ON NYC PATENT OFFICE IN 1902,THE FIRST CARS BUILT WITH ELECTRIC MOTOR IN MODERN AGE CAME OUT 6 8 YRS AGO?
    and what about hydrogen discovered by a french scientist in 1780 i think or even earlier,today toyota hyundai suzuki son on so forth build cars that run on hydrogen but have an enormous cost...
    in italy you would pay a toyota car running with hydrogen something like 70K,a hyundai around 65K so on so forth..
    so big E companies hate free electricity coz they would be bankrupted...
    same goes for oil companies...
    about your experiment well good to know that even in italy there are those whom believe Nikola Tesla theory of free electricity is right,the planet can provide free electricity.
    proud to be italian and an italian has demonstrate that radiant electricity can be stored...
    ASAP i will try to make something like that since my plan to get rid of big E companis is coming along slowly but coming along...
    P.S. on youtube i saw a guy that has built a solar cell with copper and surprised but not too much it works...
    ASAP i will test even the copper solar cells...and post a video here!
    for those that understand electricity more than me i suggest to see that video:

    that's the link for solar cell made with copper...
    gents capitalism is the worst virus exported by USA world wide...
    and that is a fact!!
    as i say everywhere whom has proof to prove me wrong about capitalism, well show me the proof and i will gladly admit i was wrong..until someone can show me proof that i am wrong well my opinion stand still and correct....

    This reminds me or Benjamin Franklin's experiment (the real one, not the fake one) and a demonstration at the Boston Museum of Science where charges from a huge Van De Graaf Generator a collected using a key on a kite. The lightning doesn't actually strike the key, of course, but the key collects charges that can then be stored in a leyden jar.

    It is not collecting "radiant energy", it is collecting static electricity. (Think; "low-voltage lightning")

    Polož si otázku elektrostatický proud má velké množství kladného náboje a jen málo záporného země produkuje velké množství záporného náboje a jen málo kladného co se stane když se tyto náboje země a vzduchu propojí? Zvýší se watáž a to o hodně

    You are right! I just wanted to keep the name given to it by Tesla. Do you think that should change the title?

    V době Tesly zapalovací svíčky jak je známe dnes nebily.Nebyl ani měděný drát používal se železný na to hodně lidí zapomíná proto některé generátory co lidi replikují nefungují správně nebo vůbec

    how can this thing make enough voltage for spark?
    you can get only few volts.

    Hello guys, I am very fascinted of teslas research.
    About radiant energy let clarify like this : According tesla all are the same radiant energy - cosmic rays day/night 24/7 - Aether(power source of his car)-static electricity - all it is considered one and the same but wothin different names.
    I was watching some videos on youtube about this as well and was thinking why there is low voltage output from this unit . I figured it out finally , it is in material. Instead of metal plate try use some limestone or asfalt material. Please see this short article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low_emissivity . MEtal material does not absorb much of that radiant energy. But limestone,asfalt absorb far too much of this energy. And as well I would suggest that that antena would not be plate as rectangle , but best solution to catch lot of tat energy would be BALLL type antena - diameter 20 -50 cm or Pyramid type antena with base lenght 200 - 50 cm . In these two cases radiant nergy/static electricity would be harnessed in more eficient and much more faster way . Please also refer in google in electrical performance of limestone/asfalt etc. I am trying to figure out more of bulding this antena. For capacitor I would suggest 50 - 100 V , very hign capacity - mikro, nano 10 000 farrads at least or if possible more according tesla considerable electrostatic capacity. Tesla also stated:dielectric of condensator should be made the best quality of mica means will add a bit more on price for it has to withstand potentials that could rupture a weaker dielectrictric . SOrry if there i something wrong , but i am trying to solve this patent as well as you guys and it is my opinoion. Please write me anytime wou would clarify . I will be pleased tp answer. GOt lot of books about tesla, god good booksof radiant energy where everything is explained about ho that energy is absorbed,reflected and emited , also explains materials for radiant energy.
    Thank you so far .
    hope soon we will be powering our houses .

    So hjave you figured it out yet?? I am waiting to build one but need more answers before I start!
    Tesla's site shows him powering a bunch of light globes! How did he do it?
