ZPOD Replication

So I did my first ZPOD replication. The ZPOD is a device by William Alek that uses multiple toroidal transformers wound 1:1. The primaries are connected in parallel and the secondaries are connected in series. A blocking diode on the secondaries prevents current from flowing while the primary is being charged, upon discharge current flows through the secondaries. Alek claims the device produces excess energy by converting ambient heat to electrical energy. Additionally I added biasing magnets between the toroids, lining the toroids up in a row with a bottom and top magnet.

Initially I had some trouble getting this device to work effectively. I had mostly written it off when I decided to take a second look at an anomaly I encountered in early testing. This led to an interesting discovery or perhaps rather a confirmation of Alek's claim of conversion of ambient heat. The summary of what I found was when the primary was driven only by a signal generator attached to a transistor and the input for the primary was a ground wire (my oscilloscope probe ground) the device while consuming no power except what was provided by the signal generator produced a small voltage around certain frequency and 50% duty cycle and could charge a capacitor on the secondary.

If you think the circuit described above sounds stupid you are understanding it correctly.. Input to coil is ground wire, base of coil connects to transistor collector, signal generator on base and emitter... Stupid, but it worked.

What I found was when I placed my hand/arm on the secondary windings of the toroids the capacitor would charge to a much higher voltage. Removing my hand would allow the capacitor to discharge down to a lower voltage. After finding the frequency at which this effect would occur, I connected it back up to a battery and its behavior was much better.. Some interesting problems were encountered.. The device produced enough interference that the multimeter would flash making it hard to track voltage. When I moved up from 12V to 36V my monitor which was about 2 feet away would flash off and on when the device was engaged.. This seemed very odd as I did not expect so much interference from the device since it was based on toroids the magnetic field should be constrained to the toroid, but the device caused significant interference at the higher voltage.

Here is a circuit diagram which may be useful if anyone wants to experiment with the idea of using a toroid as a thermoelectric generator. I did a brief investigation as to how this might work, as the Nernst effect seems to be the most likely candidate. The fact that this device does not require you to be able to design your own semiconductors though makes it worth further investigation. Also the fact that the power source is a signal generator and a ground wire suggests it might be useful for investigating the effect Kapanadze was exploiting.

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.
