Magnetic Energy

Maxwell’s equations states that electric energy and magnetic energy are related by nature. Magnets produce potential energy through magnet motion and additionally through the magnetic field emitted. Principles of electromagnetism are being applied in some types of modern power plants today. Currently this is accomplished by rotating coiled wires with magnets to produce electricity.

How do magnets produce electricity?

In order to produce electricity through magnetic energy coiled wires are wrapped around a cylinder. The wires rotate in a space between the cylinder and magnets to spin the cylinder which creates an electrical current. The electric current is created through the kinetic energy of the coiled wire moving the cylinder.

Magnetic Energy Generator

Magnetic energy generators were thought to have the ability to produce almost free energy and electricity for power consumption. The concept first came about in 1977 by a man named Bruce De Palma. The machine he was working on was called the N-Machine. Although De Palma’s machine was not self reliant, it could be used to dramatically multiply the effects of electricity. His data from the machine showed that for every 1 unit of power input in the machine it could return 5 units of power back. Subsequent tests however proved to be much less efficient producing only 2 units of power in return.

The idea reemerged in 1995 when two scientists, Ludwig Brits and Victor Christie, took the idea of De Palma to began improving the efficiency of the N-Machine. After making a public announcement about their research they were quickly criticized and ostracized by the scientific community and new media organizations.

Magnetic Navigation Technology

Compasses are nothing more than a magnetic device which points in the direction of the Earth’s polar field. Conventionally magnets were used in naval navigation but are used today in land navigation ventures as well. The compass revolutionized the ability for sailors to find their direction when on the open ocean and also allows a greater ability to navigate one’s terrain in dense forest areas on land.
