Before I get started on any new threads regarding these electrical devices, I feel the need to express what it is I'm attempting to do here, in relation to my philosophy in life.
Someone coined the phrase: 'the rule of K.I.S.S' which means, Keep It Super Simple. There's another phrase spoken that goes: "simplicity is complexity at its best." Plus, I use humor to cope with stressful situations and, this isn't so much of a philosophy as it is perhaps a character flaw, where I can't seem to catch mistakes in my writings/drawings BEFORE such gets posted. It never fails, as soon as it's posted, the mistakes glare at me... and not always immediately.
I've heard tales of authors, whom many faithfully read, have editors that pour over their works to shape it to the point that, you, the read will enjoy, without having to wade through errors of every sort imaginable... which leads me to revision 7 shown in post # 24 of this thread.
I've got the blues and feel like sitting down at the piano and playing same... the adjustable voltage regulator looks like it will not work, for various reasons, in the circuit as I had hoped it would. What it needs to be replaced with is a pulse-width-modulator that allows for peak voltages while limiting the current flow, and such a circuit can be controlled by a CdS cell, like the regulator circuit. A rheostat (heavy-duty potentiometer) could be used in place of the regulator, but rheostats are mechanical devices and would require that they are mechanically coupled together, which would make the circuit module design ultra-complicated and impossible to simply pop it out of its snap-in position... the rod that mechanically links these rheostats would need to be remove enough to replace any malfunctioning module.
Pulse-width-modulators are not simple circuits, but they can be bought in ready to go packages that are small enough so that these replaceable modules won't widen too much, the over-all width of the motor.
And last, I plan to present a variation of another's works... where said works are suppressed, and so I have to reference the inventor's device/patent to enable a clear view of the differences between the variant and its original. Having to reference suppressed technologies will most likely remove any variant from the public domain, even though the variant's changes prove to be significant enough to warrant its own patent... I'd still have to cite its basis, which have been suppressed. Once posted, latch on to the information in the hopes that TPTB will soon lose their strangle-hold on such technologies.
The generator circuit as shown is not regulated for charge voltages, and unless you like to blow-out capacitors, the need for such regulation is an absolute. That same regulator circuit used for speed control in revision 7 will work nicely, but its output will be fix at charge voltage, instead of being adjustable.
Scroll down and take a look at one of Gary's patents, and pay particular attention to the date that patent was issued. We have an 140 year deficit of development/refinement. We are well behind the curve and I seek to change that. http://www.rexresear.../gary/gary1.htm
Will revision 8 be flawless? I doubt it.
