My design idea relates to energy engineering and more particularly to the alternative energy technology of getting power from physical forces, operating without burning fuel.

The first industrial revolution (1760 - 1840) used fuel, water and steam to mechanize production and transportation. We know the steam engine was one of the most important inventions at this time. These engines used in all sorts of applications including factories, mines, locomotives, and steamboats. Steam engine uses the force produced by steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder. This pushing force transformed, by a connecting rod and flywheel, into rotational force for work

I developed and experimentally investigated a new method of converting physical forces into rotational motion, and therefore into work and energy

It is very important that this method use fundamental physical forces that do not require burning fuel. An example of the implementation of this method into a real technical design using forces of attraction and repulsion of permanent magnets is the Magnet engine Australian Patent 2014240249 B1,

This engine design becomes much simpler when I arrange magnets as shown in illustrations # 1 and 2. It is easy to see that the principle of operation of such a magnet engine repeats the principle of operation of the steam engine. The magnets replaced the force of steam pressure, and the piston and connecting rod lost their need as the magnets interact with each other without contact, at a distance. It is quite possible that this magnet engine will play the same important role in the new industrial revolution with using permanent magnets as it was in the past with a steam engine.

Electric vehicles and flying machines are changing the world today. This is due to the use of magnets in their electric motors making them highly efficient. We extract energy from permanent magnets for a long time, but no one notices this. Let us replace all the permanent magnets that we widely use in electric motors on the electromagnets. Electric motors will significantly increase in size and their power consumption will increase at least twice. In this regard, the creation of an engine that employs only permanent magnets is relevant.

Magnet engine will be applied wherever used engines running on fuel and replace them in the future. In space, it will replace solar panels.

Individual source of electrical energy must be wherever it is needed. This will eliminate the need to laying electrical wires in the fields, in the mountains, forests, towns and cities. This will be wireless electricity, which saves people from many of today's problems. This will happen in the near future thanks to permanent magnets.

The prototype of this engine is depicted in illustrations # 3 and its work can be observed and analyzed here and here
