The Tesla Electric Car Conversion of a 1931 Pierce-Arrow is Back!

Tesla did not use 12 radio tubes in his 1931 demonstration.

He invented high voltage vacuum tube capacitors in 1896.

Sunset over transmission lines.

This is a renaissance in electric vehicles. The Tesla electric car from 1931 is the best electric car ever designed by Nikola, himself. No one knew how it worked until now.

Parametric Capacitance in a Three Phase A/C Induction Motor

Electric Capacitance equals Radius of Swinging Arc

If a circuit is already precharged, then it's upkeep (to offset  thermodynamic losses and conversions) is rather easy by parametrically  altering one or more capacitors' values, lowering and then raising,  their capacitances very abruptly in the milli Farad – or more – range  (serving as the upper boundary). In this example, I suggest the use of  100 milli Farads as the upper boundary and 50 milli Farads as the lower  boundary. Timing is also important. If you setup the parameters of  variation beforehand (as described above), and then flick the solitary  switch (in this example) at just the right moment immediately prior  to a sinusoidal wave turning around (falling after rising or rising  after falling), then you increase your chances of a gainful result  rather than a loss.   


This endeavor is much like pushing a child on a play-swing at the right  moment to amplify her arc rather than diminish it (to avoid pushing her  at the wrong moment in her swing). The difference, here, is that pushing  a child – or having the child lean forward – drives an oscillator by  injecting new energy into the pendulous swing rather than parametrically  amplifying stored energy by having the child stand up and sit down  suddenly (from a squat) just before reaching the apex of her arc – or at her apex – (finishing this procedure of shortening and lengthening the radius of her arcing swing before reaching the apex of each swinging arc so as to amplify, rather than diminish, her stored momentum).   


Please see the text called, "How to Pump a Swing" and other fine texts.


BTW, dead batteries (the lead-acid type or AGM) make a good poor man's reactive converter (instead of using a synchronous condenser) to bring the power factor back to unity. Free energy is not  the hard part. The challenge is making it useful! The next time you  hear the term: "radiant", just substitute the word "reactive". My  favorite reactance is parametric capacitance for it's the easiest  overunity to achieve.

A miniature 16 MHz quartz crystal used as the resonator in a crystal oscillator.

Quartz crystals  are used as oscillators since they will mechanically vibrate if  subjected to a voltage or emit a voltage if mechanically squeezed. This  alteration of a crystal's dimensions affects its "shunt capacitance". If tens of millions of quartz crystal oscillators were connected in parallel, then their total capacitance, along with their parametric variations, might be useful for power gain whenever the circuit begins to "run down".

If the circuit received enough of an initial charge from outside itself,  all of the millions of quartz crystals might self-oscillate – and in so  doing – self-sustain their own charge by parametrically contracting and  expanding with each pulsing A/C cycle. The right balance of factors may  create a self-running operation? Perhaps...

Magnetic Amplifiers with an LMD Analog Computer

  • - Probably the most realistic since a lamp (in this example) doesn't get in the way and make things more complicated like the magnetism of a coil.
  • - Probably the most accurate since a magnetic sinkhole is needed to throw away excessive production of current in order to maintain its excessive production. A motor load is not good enough. Please see this video, "Production of Free Energy Demands Throwing it Away", on the video page.
  • - This extends 'idealev' to include twelve additional capacitors to fulfill the story of Tesla's Pierce-Arrow demonstration of 1931. These twelve vacuum tube capacitors would have been inside Tesla's project box. The variable capacitor on the far right of this simulation would have been connected in parallel with the AC motor and used as a throttle to vary the frequency and, thus, the speed of the motor. Hopefully, this is more realistically buildable.
  • - Unstoppable infinite gain with series resistance in caps and coils.
  • - Manageable escalation and diminishment for one coil of a two coil DC motor with series resistance.

Tesla's Special Generator and Pierce-Arrow Demonstration


    Most solar powered devices run off of a battery of energy storage cells rather than taking electricity directly from the solar panel. The solar panel recharges the battery and the solar powered device runs directly from the battery. Yet, my design requires so little power that I can get away with eliminating all batteries! Instead, I take electricity directly from a micro mini, solar panel powering a high frequency, sine wave generator at a cost derived from the ambient lighting surrounding this device.

    Since I run off of inspiration, I haven't had much to say concerning Tesla's Pierce-Arrow. But I've been busy writing a book on a motorized transformer - as well as translating it into Spanish to help with my grammar - which led to this present insight: that Tesla's Special Generator is the solid-state version of Tesla's Pierce-Arrow demonstration of 1931.

    Byron Brubaker is a cool guy. Trained as an electrical engineer, confidant to Joseph Newman, and going by the moniker of MX6Maximus on YouTube and Facebook, has given me a few gems of electrical wisdom during our conversations. One is a variation of the Tesla Pierce-Arrow story which I've never heard before...

    The reason why Peter Savo was asked to accompany Tesla to Buffalo, New York, was - not to serve as a witness, but - to keep an eye on the pressure gauge on the dashboard and notify Tesla the moment it rose beyond a certain safe limit. Byron claims he was pressurizing a condenser (called, capacitors nowadays) utilizing this patent, called: “Nikola Tesla U.S. Patent 577,671 - Manufacture of Electrical Condensers, Coils and Similar Devices”.

    I didn't have the opportunity to use this concept in any of my simulations until now.

    By assuming that pressurization of the dielectric material of a capacitor equates to its increase of equivalent series resistance, raising a capacitor's series resistance in Micro-Cap led to a greater stability of the circuit I was working on, yesterday, intended for my latest book linked to, above.

    The problem I was having was that the circuit, in the course of adding more components to its simulation to enable successful rotation of a motor shaft, was exploding to infinite gain as a runaway surge condition. That was merely one type of error the simulator gave me, calling it: “Matrix is singular”. {I've had to learn by trial and error what Micro-Cap's cryptic messages mean to me instead of whatever its software designers intended them to mean!} The only way to prevent this error from occurring was to make a capacitor into a generator to serve as a voltage regulator. {The removal of this capacitor was the easy way to solve this problem. Yet, its inclusion ironed out the spiky gaps in the D/C output at the motor (load) coil and was the whole point to its necessity.} Since adding equivalent series resistance to a capacitor is the same as converting the capacitor into a current source (by way of it becoming a negative resistor), this led to the suppression of any new surge in this isolated section of the overall circuit. And since the circuit was already inspiring the creation of a surging condition elsewhere and under stable management, I didn't need any new instigation to destabilize an otherwise stable condition. Hence, the need for increasing the resistive presence of this peculiar variation of a capacitor. HINT..... I had to raise what would normally be my default series resistance for ceramic capacitors of 10 milli-Ohms to an unthinkable Mega-Ohm if it weren't for Byron's discussion to me several weeks ago. 

    This did the job. I simulated a ten second duration taking hours of computer time and consuming 4 Giga bytes on my harddrive to store the simulator's data file for tracing the circuit's oscilloscope output.

    At one kilo-Ohm of ESR, the simulator succeeded at calculating a 300 milli second duration. But when raised to ten seconds, it bombed out with its standard error message indicating to me that I had to raise the ESR yet again by an arbitrary factor of one thousand (for convenience's sake).

    So, I don't know if 1 Meg-Ohm is necessary or I might get away with something smaller, such as: 100 kilo-Ohms or 10 kilo-Ohms? I really don't care at this point.... The fact is, I succeeded with my quest to make my design for an overunity circuit capable of turning a motor shaft.
