Last summer in 2015, we conducted tests on the beach in Honduras with a Tesla wireless power transfer circuit. Using no wires, the results were as follows: At 4 meter distance between the transmitter and receiver, sufficient energy was detected in the receiver to light up the power led we used as a detector. At 8 meters distance no power was detected.
In the mean time we got into contact with Gary Peterson and decided together to setup a high power system, a transmitter that will be transmitting beacon, or pulsed signals 24/7 at 136Khz, 2205 meter wavelength. The new Tesla transmitter coil will use a switching circuit obtained by Gary. The transmitter will be capable of generating 3 KW CW and many more watts in the pulsed mode.
The new setup will, when finished and tested, enable us to measure transmitted power on a much longer time frame, not possible to do with the former Tesla coils. We will design several experiments with the shaped pulse power transmitter in a real world environment. At various distances we will intend to receive these pulses with 2 coherent receivers and gather data.
One receiver will be connected to a radio antenna, a magnetic loop and the other will be connected to the receiver Tesla coil, connected to ground. Comparing the Tesla coil with a radio antenna, a magnetic loop at the receiver site, will make it possible to deduce whether the power transfer is using radio waves, or other waves. Meanwhile we will analyze these data and hope to come up with new knowledge, insights.
General Planning (if we receive all the materials in time):
- The Tesla coil will be build and installed (2,5 month).
- The system will be debugged and errors in the circuit will be redesigned, corrected (1,5 Month)
- The Tesla coil is in the transmission mode 24/7 with the new high power Tesla coil transmitter (In the summer of 2016).
- We hope to have gathered sufficient data to present a report (Nearing the end of the year)
Meanwhile we will update our web site with the findings of the experiments to keep you informed.
Maybe you are willing to participate in the experiments. You can help in several ways. If you are capable in doing so, you might want to receive the transmitter pulses with a special receiver tuned to 136Khz. We are located in Central America and it would be interesting to see whether these pulses can be received at other places of the world, using either or both a radio antenna or/and a Tesla coil designed for 136 Khz. The other way you can help is of course sending us some money to cover the costs we are making. Our experiments are for non profit, so no commercial goals are related with our experiments. Soon we will publish several receiver circuits, hobbyist may easily solder together. For us, data received by other known receivers in the world, would help us to analyse the workings and characteristics of the system.
