Magnets have a north and a south pole. A single phase has an up and a down voltage from its center of zero. Now, by moving a magnet across a coil of wire both an up and a down or a single phase can be obtained.

Next, from two coils that are side by side, by moving magnets each its own distance apart from its companion on the same plane, two single phases that are one hundred and eighty degrees apart are created. Meaning two ups and two downs.

Rotation can be provided to three same facing circular permanent magnets from a triggering effect. The effect is created from the magnets next to two of six stationary coils that have the same center point and are beside each other on an axis. One coil will be plus up and down and its neighbor will be minus up and down. The other four coils will give appropriate power when needed. Because of using three same facing magnets to create the wave, the three coils on the plus side are 180 degrees apart and in the same realm from the three coils on the minus side. By knowing that fact the two ups and downs can be assigned to their appropriate transistor and MosFET which will produce rotation due to magnetic impedance.

It uses low power and gives high torque. This means increased output for decreased consumption as compared to conventional brushed motors, or more work for less power. It only uses a positive and negative DC input through an on/off switch. Which is the same as DC motors of today but they can be reversed if wanted by changing polarity. The major difference is that it is the same clockwise or counter cannot be switched in that fashion of changing polarities to change direction. You have to start at a specific spot to go one way or the other. Unlike present three phase motors that run through an ESC, this motor is single phase and runs because of movement. My technique of transistor, MosFET can be used for three phase rotation also as well.

The greatness of this idea is that it uses coils of wire to time coils of wire that push magnets in a phased manner instead of friction and wearing brushes. Wherever present high power motors are used, instead this alternative brushless can be used offering longer life, power and reliability. It has unfathomable market potential and can be produced almost anywhere that conventional motors are. The overall design is not complicated which adds ease to production. The prototype shown is just proof of concept and can be manipulated in various fashions. It offers an alternative, less consumptive approach at motor improvements.

And this is just a glimpse of what it is capable of achieving.
