The Kromrey Converter: These devices can exhibit interesting operation, but a much more sophisticated timing system is needed than is described in the published materials on these devices. The batteries take quite a pounding though, and fail quickly. Care needs to be taked as there is a huge amount of hydrogen produced. Gell cells do not survive long in this application. Kromrey Converters will run self powered for far longer than can be easily explained, but it's quite difficult to rule out shock excitation of the battery electrolyte. The quick depletion of the battery might support this hypothisis. Due to the high frequancy components accross the battery while in operation, measurments are difficult, and the power factor is unsteady, making it quite hard to analize the exact performance of the system. Over unity operation may be present, but is hard to prove. Special cells add cost faster than they add useable life to the system. No gain there so far. In any case, the Kromrey converter does not produce "free energy", as the cost of batteries is quite high, and you must begin with a charged battery to start the device initialy. The environmental impact of battery manufacture and disposal appear to rule this design out from any large scale applications. I lost interest in tis design some years ago due to these factors, and due to the fact that operating a Kromrey converter apparently produces an imballance in the virtual particle flux near the device, as it is electrically unballanced operation. This might easilt be addressed, but the battery issues are more complex. Interesting, but a dead end in my opinion. The Brandt-Tesla switch: The Brandt-Tesla switch suffers the same problems, it does not produce "free energy", but it does produce cheap energy. In a electrostatically ballenced configurration (4 cell, as opposed to the simpler two unequal cell configuration) it does appear to go over unity for short times, but again, the cells take a pounding and quickly fail. Shock excitation of the electrolyte is difficult to disprove, so sadly this device, and any device dependant on rechargable batteries would appear to be a dead end. Again, a much more sophisticated timing devices is needed, each battery should be monitored by a microcontroller that controlls adaptive timing for the switches. The batteries will soon reach unequal electrical conditions. Shutting down and physically moving the cells around, like rotating tires, helps to a degree, but not enough. Teh high frequancy components accross the batteries make data collection difficult for the microcontroller, and extensive filtering is needed. This filtering effects teh microcontrollers response time to the state of the batteries, and lowers the useful life of the cells as the charging cycle cannot be as accurately controlled. The important lesson from this device is that in the ballanced configuration, the virtual particle imballence is greatly reduced or absent. This imballance can be detected by a high grade electrometer inside a Faraday cage, or by a Gradiometer. "N" Machines: N machines have not proven over unity operation. The Sunburst device appeared to go over unity, but once power factors and careful measurments were taken into account, over unity operation was not proven. There may be unknown factors in it's operation though, but still not proven to be over unity. There is a varient of the N machine that does not produce power, but MAY have an apparent loss of weight while in operation. This variation closes the path of magnetic flux through the disk, but not radialy. Equal but opposite currents are induced in a pattern around the disk. My personal experience with N machines is largely limited to this varient. This device may have nore to do with Searl's device than the N machines, or fall somewhere in between. Over all, N machines appear to still have unresolved issues in their operation, and may well hold some promise. Some work done on N machine varients in India reported over unity operation some time ago, but little further has been published on these so caled "Space Power Generators". I give these an "undecided" rating. The Grey motor: While I have no experience with this device, Grey's motor has apparently been shown not to be over unity recently. I think the papers on this can be found in the INE proceedings. Anyone have these referances?
