VFPMM Concept is taking shape

Oh great. Another loony permanent magnet motor idea to waste time with. Right? Well, maybe. But the potential benefits are just too great not to try it. So here it is. The Vortex Field Permanent Magnet Motor or VFPMM. Look at the power of a tornado and study its shape. Look at the drain if your kitchen sink as water flows out. Study the formation of spiral galaxies or any rendering of energy flowing into a black hole. What do they all have in common? A vortex. Marco Rodin understands this, as did Ed Leedskalnin, Einstein and countless others. Howard Johnson also knew. I'll get back to this later.

So what's different about the VFPMM design as opposed to previous attempts? Plenty.

Looking at the new design

You may want to print this image and follow along as I describe it. Magnets A-F are bar magnets about 1/4" thick, 3/4" W, 1" L. There are six arranged in the rotating center hub with like poles facing each other all the way around at an offset angle, very similar to the OCMPMM. What's different about this design is the stators (Diametrically magnetized cylinders) rotate perpendicular to the center axis of the main rotor. There will be one bevel gear with 48 teeth below the center of the main rotor driving 5 pinions with 16 teeth each, 3:1 ratio. 5 axles will extend radially from the center to a pair of 1:1 spur gears that drive the spinning stators. Due to the shape, fields from the cylindrical magnets should concentrate on the flat ends.

In this freeze frame, stator 1 is dead center between rotor magnets A & F. Rotation forces on the stator are nil but linear force on the rotor causes it to move past the stator from right to left. Regardless of any other forces and how they might impose on the rotor, the forces created by magnet pairs 2/B and 5/E will cancel. The same is true for pairs 3/C and 4/D. There is one region of imbalance between A-1-F. The next magnet to go fully off balance is therefore B-2-A and all others cancel, and so on. There will be 5 thrust regions for every one revolution of the main rotor, in the same direction as the rotor resulting in a vortex that is five times the speed of the main rotor in the same direction.

Since the bevel gear ratio is 3:1 and circumference is Pi*D, it may be possible to get 7 stators around the 6 rotor magnets which would create 7 thrust regions circulating around the rotor, seven times as fast as the rotor in the opposite direction of rotation. Not sure which might be better.

If you look at the linear inset drawing it shows the view looking down the rotation axis of the stator magnet. As the rotor magnet sides pass by the stators, forces on the main rotor are nil but the stators are driven by the rotor magnets in the desired direction of rotation. Into the gap between the rotor magnets and the forces shift onto the rotor, then back again to rotating the stator.

I am not certain that these geometries are ideal. It may work out in the end that the stators need to be bigger and the rotor magnets deeper to the center of the rotor than they are wide. I do believe, however, that it will work and serve as proof of concept. And since they will be rotating at 3 times the speed of the main rotor, it may be interesting to put small flywheels on the stator magnets shafts too.

The OSPMM taught me that the stator needed to have some sort of a right angle relationship to the rotor. What failed is I was actually making the stator travel at right angles to the direction of motion of the rotor magnets but still moved in the same plane as the axis of rotation. This design takes it one step further and rotates cylindrical magnets at right angles to the axis of rotation, all axises converging onto the axis at the center of rotation.

Virtually every other attempt I have seen has all magnets in motion along the same axis. The closest attempt to date in my estimation is the OCMPMM. In fact, I am now starting to think that Alsetalokin actually may have observed and recorded an anomaly. The problem is he never understood the anomaly so he could not reproduce it faithfully. Eddy currents were being induced into his "magneto-kinetic Judson dampers" by the rotor magnets as they passed by which started the cascading vortex effect accidentally.

The VFPMM should start that effect more reliably. I'm not looking to extract energy from the magnets. I'm only looking to start a vortex energy field draining through the center of the device, acting as a turbine as the energy passes through to convert it to mechanical energy.

How does this relate to the Howard Johnson motor? And why have so many HJ PMM replications failed? Simple. I have not seen one single attempt that actually took two curved magnets as one assembly offset to one another. Nor have any of the curved magnets been wrapped in aluminum foil which might react to eddy currents. Hence none were truly faithful replications. Think now about several of these offset curved magnet pairs spinning around a fixed stator drum and you can clearly visualize the potential of a cascading vortex energy field through the center.

I will be posting more information on this page as work progresses on the VFPMM. Stay tuned!
