IonizationX reference circuit for waterfuelcells
« on: August 18, 2009, 21:56:31 pm »
Hi,

Many have asked me for a schematic on how to drive a waterfuelcell.
Here is what i call, the IonizationX reference schematic. This is what works best sofar.
The circuit is build to make use of BEMF pulses for an optimum result.
Because the duty is around 98%, you will have almost strait DC, but in the very short
off periode of the cycle, you will get the BEMF pulse into your WFC.

Please be so kind to share your results here in this topic when you build this circuit.

Best regards
Steve

24 hours earlier and i could have bought the diodes. I made a larger order today at an online store. Maybe i'll try in the future or use 1n4007s ...  :-\

Haithair,

Sorry to hear that.
Well, match components to your setup. For a tubecell, i would say make more circuits. For each 2 tubes one. This because of the terrible low resistance, when you have like 8 in parallel.

i looked into the data sheets for the diodes, aren't they oversized? even a 1n4007 does have a rating of 1000V/1A, which is 1000W, the diodes you mentioned can hold much much more, as i remember the concept was to inhibit current to the mA range.
why this large diodes?

maybe the initial current surge of each pulse on the diode is grand before the choke chokes it off??

Ok, to make it a little bit more clear here. This is NOT a Stan Meyer 5mA circuit.
This is a working, proven, electrolysis circuit, which provides a better result then a normal DC circuit.
So, this circuit uses AMPS and VOLTS.

In my case, i have a 60 plate drycell. That cell runs on about150VDC, give and take.
That means that the coils of that circuit are seeing a 150V pulsed voltage with an 8 Amp current.
During the duty time, the coils are getting fully charged. A magnetic field is createwd.
When the mark / off time of the cycle comes in, the magnetic field collapses and the BEMF puls of the coils will hit the wfc BIG TIME.

@Haithair: The BEMF pulse is in joules pretty big. The BEMF puls will be short. Meaning HV and high amps in a very short time periode. mS or uS. Because that puls is short, the Mark / off time is kept to a minimum.
Thats the reason why the diodes are so large. Smaller ones, like the 1n4007 are blown up by the spike.

So in scheme of all this, you must try to use a core as big as possible. And wire that is not too small.
All our efforts with small cores and thiny wire didnt give much results. Thats why Stan used 36Volts.
Thats why Boyce is using like 200Volts.
And thats why I use150Volts.

alright then i misunderstood the purpose of this circuit. it has lost interest to me because i'm not interested in current-electrolysis.

Ok,

I have a new diode which will do also a very good job here.
Its the rhrg75120

The RHRG75120 is a hyperfast diode with soft recovery
characteristics (trr < 85ns). It has half the recovery time of
ultrafast diodes and is silicon nitride passivated
ion-implanted epitaxial planar construction.
