Over 1.2 billion people are without access to electricity and 2.7 billion are without clean cooking facilities; more than 95% of these people are in sub-Saharan Africa and 84% are in rural areas.
The Inexhaustible Power Source (IPS) is a technology that has the potential to meet all of man’s energy needs. The IPS has a power-to-weight ratio of 122 Horsepower per Kilogram, an efficiency of about 99%, a lifespan of 75yrs, and a coefficient of performance that tends to infinity. The IPS does not depend on the weather; it does not pollute the ecosystem; it does not accelerate deforestation or inflate food prices; and it does not raise uncomfortable questions about meltdowns or radioactive waste storage; it is economical and affordable. The IPS produces energy by inducing a space-time curvature in its vicinity and transducing the energy inherent in the space-time curvature into classical mechanical energy.
The IPS comprises a radially magnetized ring magnet that is free to rotate about its axis of symmetry, and a plurality of oblique magnets, having azimuthal magnetization, disposed in close enough proximity to the inner curved surface of the ring magnet to produce magnetic interaction there between. In operation and with reference to the gif animation, all the magnets immerse themselves in a spiral magnetic field; the longitudinal tension in the spiral magnetic field causes radial and tangential magnetic forces to continuously act on all the magnets. The moment of the tangential magnetic forces results in the ring magnet rotating continuously about the axis.
As the ring magnet rotates, it passes through different regions with different airgap permeances. When it passes through regions with low airgap permeances, it losses some of its magnetism, and its temperature drops. When it passes through regions with high airgap permeances, it recovers its lost magnetism, and its temperature returns to its initial value. Therefore, as the ring magnet rotates, it experiences magnetocaloric effects, and causes the spiral magnetic field and the output torque to pulsate continuously.
Note: If we substitute a laminated silicon-iron ring for the ring magnet, the IPS would have a power-to-weight ratio of 223.7 Horsepower per Kilogram.
The output torque is affected by the following factors:
(1)The flux density of each magnet
(2)The height of each magnet
(3)The thickness of each magnet
(4)The number of oblique magnets
(5)The pole inclination angle of each oblique magnet
(6)The proximity of each oblique magnet the ring magnet
(7)The curvature of each oblique magnet’s surface adjacent the inner curved surface of the ring magnet
(8)The average radius of the ring magnet, and
(9)The relative permeability of the substitute for the ring magnet, i.e., if a magnetic ring is substituted for the ring magnet
