Synopses & Reviews
Author Walt Noon will explain the experiments he has run, the problems, the solutions, how to build low cost generators from parts on hand, and much more. Learn about the electrophorus, his Rotostatic generator, his bizarre Cat-o-Static generator, motor speed controls, external Van de Graaff generators, the classic internal Van de Graaff generator, ideas for an extremely high voltage Van de Graaff, inductive electrostatic generators, the Dirod generator, and more. Youll find the equipment Walt has used to measure the voltages he has generated including his FET electroscope, neon lamp banks, spark gap volt meters, and more. Walt will show you how to build storage capacitors along with details of his successes and failures.
You get a list of interesting experiments, details about a variety of ion motors, ion blowers, the Franklin electrostatic motor, the Poggendorff Corona Motor, and even capturing free electrical energy from the atmosphere. As a bonus Walt will show you how he electroplates metal onto nonconducting forms to build low-loss high voltage terminals! Walt will clearly and humorously explain some of the crazy machines he has built and hopes youll improve on.
You get an easy-to-read text loaded with photos and drawings. Excellent book!
