ó Ultra-Efficient ďMjolnir Curvilinear Air-Motor Generator SetĒ
Elegant minimalist design eliminates most of the working parts traditionally
associated with internal combustion engine-generator sets; and offers greatly
improved energy efficiency for a variety of applications using electrical power.
Imagine a portable electrical power
generating system with no gearbox, no transmission, no carburetor or other fuel
feeds. Yet, it converts gas pressure mechanical force energy fed to it into
electrical power in one step. With the elegance of absolute simplicity, this
concept makes traditional internal-combustion powered electrical generators look
like wasteful and extravagant indulgences.
The traditional method of providing
rotational mechanical power and torque to run an electric generator is the
internal combustion engine, which uses up to 65% of the energy potentially
available from the fuel just to move all of the engines parts, such as pistons
and cams, plus what is wasted generating excess heat. Then, the mechanical
transmission uses 6%, the accessory loads 2%, and idling losses come to about
11%, leaving about 16% of the energy actually converted from the stored chemical
energy in the fuel used to produce torque at the crankshaft.
There is a lot wrong with that
100-year-old picture. It should be retired as a relic of the era from wince it
came. 21st century technology is here, now. Itís time to make a change.
The M-CAM is a new concept for
making electrical power which demonstrates a vastly improved efficiency when
compared to traditional methods. The M-CAM concept, inspired by knowledge of the
seed concepts and a short acquaintance with another forward thinking innovator,
pursued the notion of a curvilinear dynamo with very few component parts. Since
conceptualization of the M-CAM in the early 1990's, the unique design concept
has proved to capable of eliminating:
||high temperature exhaust.
||carbon particulate pollution.
||toxic exhaust emissions.
||fuel delivery infrastructure.
||volatile carbon based fuel.
||starter motor cranking.
Though the MCAM will weigh only
approximately 50 pounds, the gas pressure powered motor is capable of generating
up to 300,000 watts of electricity without creating any pollution.

TORUS ROTOR TRACK
The design combines the continuous
one-directional rotation of alternating polarity magnets in a rotor which
magnetically pulse electrical power generator coils which in turn provide
electricity to perform useful work. The machine is powered by a high pressure
gas used to propel the rotor through the continuous torus track. This
magnet-to-inductor coil interaction directly produces electricity. The high
pressure compressed gas propellant can be supplied from standard air compression
or from the expansion of an inert element such as Liquid Nitrogen as it flashes
to a high pressure gas above minus 250̊F. With a non-explosive gas to cushion
the moving parts, there is virtually no wearing of interference surfaces. And,
because this gas-motor-generator set (MG-Set) is designed to produce High
Voltage AC Power, there is no transmission; a power cable used to transmit the
generated electric power.
Forced through torus track, at full
gas pressure, the magnet rotor travels through the center-hole of each of a
series of copper wire power output generator coils. The alternating polarity
magnetic lines of flux of the rotors magnets, strike the copper wire power
output generator coils with a never before utilized magnetic field orientation
providing an improved magnetic-mechanical interactive relationship efficiency
between magnets and coils for the generation of electrical power.
To optimize performance parameters
for the intended application, the M-CAM can be easily adjusted with the
appropriate instrumentation by controlling gas pressure and volume.
If more electrical power is
demanded, gas propellant horse power can be increased to provide enough
mechanical power to maintain magnet rotor RPM, which controls the voltage and
frequency for varying electrical power loads.
The M-CAM produces instant full
power operation starting from zero RPM. The instrumentation controls
automatically compensate for variances in electrical demand.
The M-CAM is capable of virtually
silent operation; however, air compressors are noisy and require acoustical
housings to reduce sound level. Whatever the sound level chosen by the user for
his application, one thing is certain: the electric motors turning wheels and
performing other work, will not need mufflers.
When air is compressed, the
molecules rub together, creating heat. When the compressed air performs
expansion into an expansion chamber, the air becomes cold. So, when running,
instead of heating up, the M-CAM actually gets colder by its operation. This
attribute will help to cool the electrical power output coils.
A careful analysis of the
simplicity of the M-CAM reveals a huge reduction in cost to manufacture and
deploy these electrical power generator systems. Compared to internal combustion
engines, far fewer parts are needed, and those few required parts will last much
M-CAM Features & Benefits
What makes M-CAM the next green technology leap in electric power generation?
||M-CAM has no torque arm, eliminating
the need to use torque as a limiting factor in determining mechanical
horsepower required to overcome electro-magnetic resistance when
electricity is being produced. All gas pressure forces directly impact
the generation of electricity.
||Directed gas pressure forces
developed by the M-CAM design, make it necessary for the formulation of
new calculations and relationships to determine potential power output
with mathematics. The M-CAM rotor-magnet-to-inductor-coil relationship,
curvilinear, deviates from the Tesla relationship. This deviation from
the norm, allows for substantial increase in the ability of the magnetic
lines of flux to ďcutĒ all of the metal in the copper inductor coils.
Something that cannot be accomplished with the standard motor or
generator configuration in use today.
||M-CAMís elimination of the torque
arm allows it to directly generate more mechanical brake horsepower, in
the form of electricity, pound-for-pound, than any other means or
method, and will use compressed air to provide rotor mechanical power.
||M-CAMís design eliminates harmful
emissions and particulate pollution.
||M-CAM can be delivered in an
economically small package that will provide electrical power for a wide
range of applications. Simply adjust the air supply pressure and volume
to suit the application. The M-CAM is scalable to virtually any size.
||M-CAM operates on compressed air;
use any traditional fuels, or the system supplied with each unit. (See
data on the heat energy resident in the atmosphere).
||M-CAMís design allows for multiple
M-CAMs to be
connected to the same electrical power grid or buss. The amount of usable
electric power, in kilowatts, can be easily doubled with additional M-CAM units
||Low Parts Count
||M-CAMís simple design, only one (1)
moving assembly, makes it possible for an air motor generator set
requiring fewer than 60 parts, meaning low capital cost when
manufactured on a mass scale. The rotor is a series of magnets and
spacers. A 9 inch diameter rotor assembly contains approximately 24
magnets and 23 spacers.
||M-CAMís curvilinear design means
there is no vibration.
||M-CAMís curvilinear movement and
limited number of moving parts leads to increased component life.
