##### Theory - Unipolar Pulses
« on: January 16, 2013, 21:52:49 pm »
Is anyone familiar with the radiant charging circuit with Charles Seiler sells on his website?  He also goes by the name supermuble.  I bought the circuit from him a few years back and tried it out and it indeed does work on producing HHO with low current at decent production levels.

I started comparing waveforms from his circuit in simulation with the VIC circuit simulations and one thing that I have noticed that makes me think the most significant difference is that his circuit actually does produce a unipolar waveform.  The peaks in the waveform go between 12V+ and 28V+ but never to back down to zero during the pulsing operation unlike the VIC circuit where it always seems to go at least back to zero if not reversing a little and then back up to its peaks.

Seems to me that not only do we need to keep unipolar pulses on the cell but also keep a consistent charge on the cell while we're pulsing it.  As it is right now it seems that the cell is dissipating the charge between each pulse.

Incidentally, this is related to my topic about low impedance.  http://www.ionizationx.com/index.php/topic,2426.0.html

Timeshell,
I am more interested in the potential for building voltage, and how he determined his frequency.  I agree that keeping SOME voltage going in is good, this whole GATING (stopping the pulses for some period) SHOULD be secondary to getting HHO production with low current consumption.  (What is the max voltage across his water capacitor?)

The circuit below shows that if you TUNE the frequency just right, 12V eventually becomes 1+ MV...  This is clearly IDEAL and UNREAL, but increasing voltage on EVERY pulse by more than it dissipates is the goal, is it not?  Play with that circuit and change the frequency a bit.  Just a few HZ makes a dramatic difference.

The second challenge with analyzing wave forms is that that they are often OUTPUT wave forms.  The wave form I get for a Square wave, when it goes through a 1:10 step up transformer is NOT EVEN CLOSE to what I put in.  Even a PULSE shows the eddy lines after the step up.  Due to inductance, the wave form on the input side is altered!  (Of course, if you are getting it right out of the controller.  Great.  I would ask to connect it to YOUR capacitor, to see if the tuning is a big piece?)

I say until you have amazing tuning and HHO production, then I would not GATE off the voltage pulses.  Once you can produce the resonant wave, then gating has a benefit.  But I view gating as a late stage optimization that Stan did.  Especially when I see his older equipment.

On the circuit below, if you add a ZENER diode before the 330mH inductor.  You wont get far on 12V.  Change it to 24V, and you are back  in the game.  But it takes 12 Seconds (with 7,000 pulses per second),
to get up near 1MV... (but hey, 84,000 pulses of 24V is near 2MV).

Put in a regular Diode, and it does not work anymore.  I keep reading about people getting 2xVoltage in the capacitor thinking this is the point of the LC circuit.  I can't imagine all of this talk of resonance not sinking in.
You want HUGE voltage across the plates, pulsating with low current.  (Pushing the swing at the playground).  (If a diode goes in here, it better be Zener type, or it should go INTO the primary coil side.  Although,
if you are using a MOSFET on the primary side for gating).  Then there is no real reason to diode the circuit there.  The MOSFET, when OPEN (not pulsing) will have the same effect as the diode.  Of course, if you
have really long pulses you might need the diode, but I am thinking Spark Gap style pulses.  Fast and Powerful.  Long pulses through a step up transformer where rate of change is important, doesnt seem right.

But the pulsing you do, should be "positive" only, not putting negative voltage into the circuit (it seems to me that would wreak havoc on the performance).  I just tested it.  Sure enough, it has the opposite effect (pulsing -12V, after charging it up).  (Notice that once running, if you set the Voltage to 0.  It will keep running forever at the current voltage.  Highly Ideal, but close to the goal)?

Also, Meyers has diagrams of this type of pattern.  Like 1/3rd - 1/5th amplitude pulses in between full amplitude pulses.  (Then again, I think Meyers had a diagram for everything EXCEPT the WORKING solution!) :-)

HTH,

Kirk Out!
PS: The values in the circuit represent my current cell.  I am waiting for an OptoIsolator (so I dont fry any more equipment).  By next week, I should have some solid test results, and hopefully a video.  If not, a ton of questions, LOL.

HI timeshell
Can You share circuit diagram of  the radiant charging circuit to replicate and experinents please?
I also thinging that unipolar pulse is very important .
Thank timeshell

I really would like to. However, since Seiler is selling this as a product, I don't feel comfortable pirating it.  I will hint however that I have seen the circuit floating around a couple places including youtube.

I'm sorry, but, at least according to my experiments, you are very wrong.  The gated pulse is essential to making this whole thing work correctly.

Incidentally, I already get HHO at low current.  I'm now working on getting more of it at low current.

See here. http://www.ionizationx.com/index.php/topic,2409.msg24070.html#msg24070

Timeshell,
I apologize for the confusion.  Pulses are required.  Gating (as I intended it), is turning off the pulses for a period of time.  Or in your previous piece, significantly decreasing the amplitude.
Sorry for the confusion in terms.  Yes, you have to PULSE the system, or it wont work.  But turning off the pulses comes after you have it tuned and working well.
It sounds like you are at that stage.  Congrats.  (Gating, from my perspective, allows you to let the resonance work, and take a break.  I think Stan said 5 seconds on and then he was able to let
it run for 95 seconds).

Thanks for the reference to your circuit.  A few points.  the CIR is missing the capacitor.  And the frequency doesnt match the diagram (FYI, it was an easy place
to start).

Did you implement the 5 coil VIC or individual pieces?  (This is becoming my most difficult sourcing piece)

Thanks,

Kirk Out!

The circuit link link in this post:
http://www.ionizationx.com/index.php/topic,2409.msg24070.html#msg24070

Is proof of concept.  The frequency most certainly is correct for the values shown.  The choke coil after the diode is the most important.  With an inductance of 450mH and a cap of 25.67nF, the resonant frequency is 1047.156Hz.

Gating is not simply for 5 seconds or 95 seconds or arbitrary period of time.  Looking again at the above circuit, the second AC supply triggers a relay to gate pulse the first one.  Notice I have it set to 200Hz.  Try this circuit and play with the pulse cycle.  You will find at one frequency zone it will get the cap to maximize its charge.

Also, when I was referring to gated pulse, it was not with reference to the primary resonant frequency, it was specifically to the gated pulse.  It is an essential component.

I have been experimenting regularly with these simulations for years now.  I cannot go into all the detail of my experiments.   However, I will not post anything without having as solid supporting evidence as I can provide.  You will notice I have two kinds of topics in my thread, theory and knowledge base.  These are to separate what I have proven with experience and what I perceive based on current understanding.

From my experience to date, the unipolar gated pulse is absolutely required.  From my experience to date, coils of very low resistance are required.  However, I have not been able to get it to work in the context of the VIC circuit yet, which is why I still have it labeled as theory.

I am using my own custom wound 5 coil VIC.
