The objective of the power supply is to provide a practical source of AC power for an end user absent any combustible fuels or other traditional energy input provision. Storing energy for later use has become the focus of many in private industry as well as the Federal Government. Making use of rare earth magnets with the assistance of a minority input voltage and current to maintain rotation of a specifically sized flywheel (configured in a proprietary fashion) will drive a standard alternator, wind generator or dynamo in any number of DC formats. The present patent pending system design supports a 12VDC charge cycle and inverter which provides 120VAC out.
The rated output of a system as defined here is based on an average use cycle (meaning an estimated 8 hour day of full load off-take). In other words, if an average small gas station requires a 10kW resource so that the daily use including peak power could be realized without interruption, (and realizing that no average gas station uses full load for 8 hours continually, but rather spreads that use over the 24 hour clock with short and medium durations of heavy use) then the rated system would be 10kW as defined by the battery storage necessary and the charging system which has an acceptable charge rate to replace what the system used at full load. Systems are rated in Amp Hours (regarding battery storage capacity).
[Example:] In order to use 10kW over 8 hours and then have that same 10kW available tomorrow, that amount of energy has to be replaced by the charging system within a period of 16 hours. Having used 80,000 watts in 8 hours we now need to provide the battery bank with that same 80,000 watts over a period of 16 hours, or, 5000 watts per hour. In a 12VDC system, that translates to the charging circuit being capable of providing 416 amps per hour continually. This is an extreme example. It would be rare to encounter this type of off take requirement, but serves the purpose as a practical example for the small gas station.
Based on the flux density of permanent magnets used and arranged in appropriate fashion (also proprietary) we are able to predict the force requirements necessary to initiate and maintain a predetermined speed of the flywheel in order to achieve shaft torque necessary to drive a particular device. The physical size (Cubic inches) and quantity as well as placement of all permanent N42 magnets is critical relative to the opposing permanent magnet which is being engaged with an electrical charge resulting in a predictable rotation and force output. Calculating the cubic inches of permanent magnets applied, we can arrive at the necessary Amperage needed to facilitate a given charge rate requirement. Added to that total energy “in” value we include the voltage and current necessary for the induction side of the process and we have a an energy output which is less than the total energy “in”, thereby preserving the Laws of Conservation of Energy.
POWER SUPPLY STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS
Standard System Definition:
The standard New Genesis Power Supply is a “grid tied” system with the option to add transfer switching components that are not included with the basic set up. The standard power supply system will utilize either 12 or 24VDC charge components with AC inverters appropriate to support the declared output value.
Our standard power supply is designed to accommodate an 8 hour full capacity off take so that the needed recharge time can be accommodated based on the Mag-Drives charging circuit output required to maintain the system’s typical or “normal” use cycle. The system has an automatic output AC interruption alarm to detect the low voltage threshold at 11VDC which switches the system from power output to the full time charging cycle until the low voltage condition is corrected and ready to supply power during the pre-programmed designated time frame. A maximum threshold of 45% discharge of battery storage has been set in order to minimize charge requirements and extend battery life on all deep cycle batteries used.
System configuration/placement assumptions:
- Rolls Surrette Batteries or their industry equivalents are used unless customer specifies a battery that meets the established battery specifications.
- Standard cabling from the Charge Unit to the Battery Banks
- Battery Bank(s) TBD by the customer’s off take requirements.
- Systems include outdoor/weatherproof enclosures upon customer’s specific needs.
- 10 year system warranty for parts and labor
- 10 year system life cycle
- Average input requirement in terms of watts is ~4-6% of the charge circuit output hourly. This may vary based on the customer’s requirements.
NOTE: Either AC or DC input can be accommodated.
Average operating environmental temperature ranges [-20◦F to 150◦F ].
Average system operating temperature <150◦F.
No specific environmental issues or concerns.
Installation of the Power Supply is included upon request.
3 Phase Units Available.
All units will be tested in the factory for not less than 5 consecutive days under customer identified load requirements to insure appropriate field performance. Pre-delivery load test results provided to the customer for system approval prior to delivery.
Note: Power Supply Pricing and final specifications depend on placement requirements.
