Charging By Induction

This device doesn't use POC but it is interesting to analyze all the same. I think the principle of operation is charging by induction.

This is as close as I can get with a schematic. The diode bridge connects to one plate of the capacitor only. The load is applied between the spark gap and ground (I think). He says there is a full wave bridge rectifier (I've just put a single diode) on the negative side of the pancake coil to ground. The magnetic field from the capacitor plate will cause a voltage drop on the pancake coil.

Hey P,

An interesting concept, one we have visited in part before.

A spark Gap can be thought of as a very fast switch. 

If anyone tries this, be very careful around the Diode Bridge, looks to be a dead short there.

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
