Out Of The Mouth Of Babes


The Potential For Perpetual Green Transportation Energy (While in Motion)

6UIzfhWhen Tajen (David) Chi’s son was a 4th grader, he pointed to a bus and said, “Father, that is the world’s largest electricity generator.” David asked his son why, and the boy replied that with the bus, the wheel is the rotor, the car frame is stator. He said teachers at school had taught the principle of the motor and generator; so he believed the bus would be able to produce very high power. Thus came the inspiration for the concept of inertial power generation and in 2006, the birth of Phemax Technologies Inc. Based in Taipei, Taiwan, Phemax is a small FREE (Fuelless Renewable Electric Energy), energy company.

On July 7, 2010, Phemax announced they had successfully created the world’s first sustainable transportation device called Inertial Propulsion Generation Wheel which can be used in electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel-cell electric cars and other green transportation applications. It involves what they call ’3D Coraxial Hybrid Induction’ (CHI) – (Oh, that’s very clever David). ‘Coraxial’ refers to combined radial-axial technique where drive is provided by a radial pulsed magnet system and power extraction is achieved using an axially-orientated magnet/coil system.

Phemax_inertial_propulsion_300Phemax states that their electromagnetic 3-D arrangement enables the wheel to have both radial flux propulsion and axial flux generation with just a single rotor and two separate stators. As the radial electric drive rotates, the mechanical energy due to the inertia of the wheel and the ground power transmission mechanism enables the wheels of a vehicle to generate electricity as they rotate.

An inertial propulsion unit converts centrifugal force to linear motion using two or more masses. The masses are connected to telescoping arms that rotate about a single axis. The telescopic arms extend and retract as they rotate around the closed path. A resultant linear force from the rotating telescopic arms provides a propulsion force suitable for a vehicle.

The device can take the place of the battery component of an electric vehicle or it can be used to supplement and recharge a battery bank in the vehicle. With a rotational input of 1 NM (Newton Meters) at 500 rpm, a single inertial-propulsion generation wheel can produce 1 KW of axial generative power.

Chi said that a 150W output from his motor actually produces between 180 and 200 watts of mechanical output, while a 1500W output produces a mechanical output of 1800 to 2000 watts (96 Volts at 20 Amps).

Phemax_device_rendition_300Ceramic-based and carbon-based ultra-capacitors are used to return some of the output power to the input in order to keep the machine running continuously without the need for a power supply when the engine is running and providing it’s output. When driving a vehicle powered by this device, the mechanical driving torque is provided via a continuously-variable transmission.

Phemax plans a public demonstration of the technology in September, where visitors will be allowed to ride the actual 2 kW test car. Afterwards, Phemax intends to put their test data on the Internet.

Here’s a couple of videos, both are very short but, they get the point across.  Video 1 is older,  Video 2 has a music overlay that will rattle your nerves so turn the volume down.

This device is also capable of driving electric lighting and with a 5 kilowatt self-powered output, it can power most household needs. A typical washing machine has a 2.25 kilowatt maximum electrical draw as does the average tumble-dryer.

If a wind-power generator is already in place, then using the mechanical power of the generator to spin the axle of one of these CHI generators results in a very high-power electricity generation system.

David Chi listened to his kid and found an avenue for continuous clean power, when it is needed. So, pay attention to your children’s words. You never know when their fresh minds will spark the innovations of their future.

as the green future unfolds.

    cool!! This electric generated vehicles would surely contribute for the benefit of our environment…I guess this would lessen the smoke pollution and would surely be a good transport vehicle….

  2. Linda Says:

    Hi Celine … Not only less smoke but less congestion as well!

  3. RE - RecycledFrockery Says:

    wowww that’s totally genius. out of the mouths of babes for sure. Great Post and totally cool device.

    That is totally awesome. What an ingenious effort, thanks to a father listening to his son!

  5. Linda Says:

    Hi RE …. It is a cool device! It will be interesting to see if it is accepted.

    Hi Barbara … You know, you never know what kids have on their mind!

    You have to listen to kids. I am a teacher and I am amazed at what I can learn from my students. I try to teach something and a student will say something and I think “duh” and what the student says brings it home for another student. So great.

    Listen to your kids and they will be more likely to listen to you! (notice that I totally ignored the main point of the article and focus and the kid :D )

    Hi Jason … Yes, I see that you focused on the kids. They are truly a clean slate and when you do get through to them, it is truly great. :D

    This post is very impressive – Tajen (David) Chi is a genius. We should all follow by example, and look for ways to implement the vitality of our planet, because if we don’t take care of it – no one else will. Excellent post!

    Hi Moving …. Thank you! If we don’t take care of it now, we won’t be here much longer.
