An electrostatic rotor with a mechanical bearing

Published in physic.philica.com

In [1] the fundamentals of energy conversion from vacuum energy into mechanical energy have been experimentally verified with the use of an electrostatic rotor supported by a very special type of a hydrostatic bearing. The machine was now further developed to a mechanical toe-bearing, which is described here.

Final aim of the electrostatic rotor is the conversion of vacuum energy into mechanical energy for the use of technical energy production. The physical principle was demonstrated in [1], but the special type of hydrostatic bearing used there (with a rotor swimming on a water surface) is good for demonstration, not for industrial application. So the electrostatic rotor was built up with a toe bearing now, as used in radiometers, where the tip of a steel needle is in contact with a glass surface in order to minimize friction. A photo of this setup can be found at [2]. The rotor blades with an surface of 3.5cm x 6.0cm have been positioned within a distance of 3.8…4.0 cm away from the field source.
Tests with grounded rotor-blades and an electrically charged field source display the following results:
Field source brought to a potential of 1100 Volt – 4 revolutions per minute.
Field source brought to a potential of 1400 Volt – 12 revolutions per minute.
An experimental reproduction for the purpose of demonstration [3] with higher voltage shows a rotation going more rapid.
Prospects to the next step:
Up to now, no attention has been paid to leakage currents in the isolators, but now these losses should be minimized in order to get positive energy balance.

Observation circumstances
After the electrstatic rotor, which converts vacuum energy into mechanical energy is experimentally verified, this is the begin of the optimization with the aim of future technical benefit.
