The GAP Generator
Electricity for the future

 

Component Parts for The GAP Generator
Some items I purchased. Others I manufactured.

  The photo to the left displays one of the 16 batteries used by The GAP Generator. The link below is for six batteries.

If using coils & magnets I suggest Tungsten relay contacts.

  The photo to the left displays the magnetic alignment of the coils used on The GAP Generator.

These coils I make. Click here to see larger photo. If you plan to make coils be very careful.

Note the N (North) side of both magnets are against the coil.

N If you plan to make coils I suggest you watch this video. In it I demonstrate how I assemble the magnets to the coils. Magnets can be VERY DANGEROUS.

  If you plan to make coils this device is a must. It is a Magnetic Pole Indicator. I repeat, it is a must.

  My last 29 tests were done with no coil attached. The reason for this is because the coil &magnets produce lots of power with 42 volts input from Bank-1 the contacts would burn up or blow the fuse. The coil as now is performs best at 42 Volts DC input. The cheap relays I have will operate OK at 36 VDC maximum. Knowing the arcing of the relay contacts was producing lots of power I decided to prove it in the last 29 tests. If you plan to use coils I suggest using relays with tungsten contact. With tungsten contacts the coil size, VDC Input, and wire size, can be increased.

Below is a link to those 29 tests.

  How long should the wire be? This is a question I often get. The photo to the left displays different wire sizes, diameter, and weight. My coils are made with AWG 21 size wire. Note it's at the very bottom. The coils on The GAP Generator I built has 2,343.75 feet of wire.

  To the left is a photo of the end caps of the coil for The GAP Generator. It was made from a door stop purchased at Lowe's. It was 5 inches in diameter. I machined it to 3.75 inches and drilled the hole.

  Making a coil for The GAP Generator. To the left is a photo of me making a coil. The photo was taken from a video of me making the coil.

  Using Tools for handling magnets. As I stated above, Magnets can be VERY DANGEROUS. These tools, or something similar, are a must.

  Magnetic Shift. A very interesting video. It displays just how the coils and magnets operate on The GAP Generator.

Anyone planning to duplicate The GAP Generator I suggest replicating mine exactly. This will create a good starting point and you will gain lots of knowledge. You can always increase the number of relays and coils. If using coils & magnets I suggest Tungsten, or a similar material, for relay contacts.
