TALES OF WOE-THE PLOT THICKENS

RESPONSE TO MY EMAIL

In my previously published hub I described the situation I found myself in trying to help an old friend. I sent an email to EBM Technologies on February 28, 2010 asking for more information on their astounding scientific discovery.

On Tuesday, March 2,2010 I received a reply from EBM Technologies to my email. The reply was from someone calling themselves Krisztina Sulyok M.Sc., B.Sc.Econ., General manager. The body of the email is below under response 3/2/2010.

I wanted to make sure they were scammers so I responded to their email asking for clarification. That email is below under MY RESPONSE. Today March, 4,2010 I received a response to my inquiry which is listed below under RESPONSE 3/4/2010.

My conclusion is after that response.

THE EMAILS

MY ORIGINAL EMAIL

To: EBM Technologies

Dear Sir,

As a graduate electrical engineer I am interested in the generator shown on the Internet. I am particularly interested in how you claim to overcome the Law of conservation of mass/energy. Please forward me all pertinent information on this revolutionary scientific discovery. Having practiced for over 40 years I am astounded by your claims!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By late the next day when I had received no reply I emailed X the email below.

X,

I have conducted a search on EBM technologies, and have come to the conclusion that their claims are scams. I have found nothing in their claims to refute the laws of physics.

A Measuring Usable Excess “Over Unity” Shaft Power of the EBM E-720 Unit in Budapest, using Joule’s Method in Checking his 1st “Chief” Law of Thermodynamics;

-and-

the Increase of such Sellable Energy Due to Increased Iron Weight

By Professor L. I. Szabó

Introduction

To numerically test his 1st “Chief” Law of Thermodynamics, Joule used in his experiment the device shown in Figure 1. as follows:

1. In a well sealed container the water inside is stirred (agitated) by the rotating blades and the temperature rise due to the friction between the blades and the fluid is measured.

2. The blades are rotated through the shaft by the two (2) Q [kg] weights as they descend over a distance of h [metre];

3. Since the container is well sealed (“adiabatic container”), no heating energy produced by the rising temperature could escape from the container and thus the increased “inner energy” increase of the water “A” can be simply measured as:

EQ (I) A=m*c(t2-t1), where:

(a) m = mass of water,

(b) c = specific heat of water,

(c) t2 = increased temperature of water, and

(d) t1= temperature of water before the agitation of the fluid began;

The shaft energy “M” being provided (“transmitted”) by the two (2) Q [kg] weights to increase the inner energy of the water can also be easily measured as:

EQ (II) M = 2*Q*h [metre kilogram], where

(a) Q [kg] = weight,

(b) h[metre] = distance,

(c) M [metre-kilogram] = torque = shaft energy;

Since no energy can escape from the container and only shaft energy “M” is being provided/transmitted to increase the inner energy “A” of the water, Joule concluded, based on his 1st (Chief) Law of Thermodynamics (being the Law of Energy Conservation) that the following must be true:

EQ (III) A = M, or

EQ (IV) 2Qh = m*c (t2-t1), or

EQ (V) M [metre-kg] = m*c(t2-t1) [calorie]

Based on Joule’s tests and measurements dividing by the right hand side of EQ (V) to obtain:

EQ (VI) 1 calorie =

4. By accurate measurements, the following were obtained:

(a) 1 calorie = 0.427 mkg

(b) 1 kilocalorie = 427 mkg

(c) 1 calorie = 4,186 x 107 ERG = 4,186 Joule

(d) joule = 1 Wattsecundum = 0,239 calorie

(e) 1 mkg = 2,34 calorie

(f) 1 kilowatthour = 860 kilocalorie

(g) 1 HorsePower = 632,4 kilocalorie/sec

5. Our main observation relative to Joule’s experiment is not the “conservation of Energy” as he stipulated, but that the “shaft energy” or torque can be measured by the generated heating energy, as will be seen in the next section, using actual measured test data for the EBM E-720 unit.

MY RESPONSE 3/2/2010

EBM TECHNOLOGIES RESPONSE 3/4/2010

Dear Mr. Whitworth:

It means that the efficiency of the EBM prototype units were 130 % and 106 % based of the test series of August 16,2006.

With best wishes,

Krisztina Sulyok

CONCLUSION

I now know it is a scam. No one can obtain efficiencies of 130% or even 106% on a driven-generator set. Losses are always present.

Interesting? I am lost at it, but I will have to look at what they are doing. You are on the right route, I do not know what they are doing. Either energy has to be conserved, or another driving force, i.e. chemical reaction or nuclear comes into effect.

Keep on hubbing!

Tom Whitworth 6 years ago from Moundsville, WV Author

eovery,

I agree with you. I wish I could convince my friend of this. I afraid he's going to waste a lot of money or even get in trouble with the FBI.

The only device I am aware of where you can get more heat energy than input electrical energy is a heat pump. Which does not violate the Law of conservation of energy.


Alternative Energy Junkie 6 years ago

Dear Tom

I am one of very few people that have actually seen the EBM technology at work. I visited the EBM labs in Budapest as part of an Alternative Energy Investor delegation in 2009.

Our engineers were granted the opportunity to attend EBM technology lectures and partake in onsite measurements. After three days of testing our chief engineer and physicist (doctorate in mechanical and electric engineering) found the results of the testing to be true and correct. The over unity claims holds water and we found the science behind the technology to be solid. We also found the technology to be fully and scientifically documented - a rare find in today's free-for-all alternative energy market.

Sadly, until today, there is no physical proof (other than mathematical data extrapolation based on measurement) that EBM drive shafts would actually self sustain their own rotation once the input power has been cut. There are still no self running units - but apparently they are working on two units as we speak.

Now, as for your inquiry, may I comment as a patron of the sciences; Just because a university text book doesn't describe a phenomenon it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. Each "discovery" should be treated with merit until such time as you have had conducted your own scientific due diligence thereof. The manner in which you conducted your investigation certainly holds no scientific relevance and should be discarded as a poor attempt at extracting information. You should know as a scientist and as an engineer, the quality of the question foretells the quality of the answer. From your emails it is evident that your questions where weak and thoughtless. I fear you may have betrayed his trust and mislead your friend (and many people having read this blog.)

EBM technology converts concentrated EM field energy into heat or kinetic one. It is not about breaching of any basic law of physics, but about a kind of free fuel, captured by an in-situ generated capture field. We never "generate" energy, but convert, transfer or transmit the existing one.

You are standing by your conservation of energy statement and why not; evidence is required to sway you. How much energy does it take to suspend a weight in a gravitational field? How much energy does it take to suspend a weight in a gravitational field if that weight is magnetic and repulsed by a natural magnetic field below it? From where does that energy come?


Tom Whitworth profile image

Tom Whitworth 6 years ago from Moundsville, WV Author

Huttate,

You obviously know nothing about physics, or you would know that energy is work per unit of time, and work is force applied over a distance. Since the object is suspended and obviously motionless, no energy is required!!!

Go take a physics 101 course and quit bothering me until you learn basic SCIENTIFIC PRINCIPALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Paul Hughes 5 years ago

As said above, the chances of this machine working are basically zero. I would be only too grateful to apologise for this remark if the machine actually works but I am certain it is a scam or our known understanding of the laws of Physics are greatly flawed.

It is always interesting that these great 'discoveries' seem to come from countries where we in the West have difficulty contacting them. Coincidence? I think not.

I cannot understand, however, why there are insults flying around, and what is the significance of saying that someone is in the Yorkshire Dales followed by loads of exclamation marks? Does the Yorkshire Dales have some sort of law that says scientists or intelligent people cannot live there?

Let's have a bit of grown up conversation here guys.


Paul Hughes 5 years ago

Just as a follow up to my previous comments. If you google magnets4energy.com there is an advert for someone selling home generators using this system. He claims that it is a hidden secret and if the CIA finds out then he will be hunted by them so only the next 12 people can get his special offer. COME ON FOLKS. If he is worried about being hunted for revealing a 'CIA secret' then why on earth is he advertising world wide on the internet?

This advert alone must prove that the whole thing is a scam.

Thank you for your comment.


AdamEgg 5 years ago

Tom,

As a graduate Chemical engineer, I agree with your opinion that this technology does not work due to the laws of conservation of mass and energy.

I do not however understand your 'proof' of this being a scam. You started off requesting information regarding their findings with your knowledge of the laws of physics already present. They forwarded you some information. You then pasted some information from their website and asked them to clarify. Their response was a correct calculation of the efficiencies produced.

Your conclusion:

"I now know it is a scam. No one can obtain efficiencies of 130% or even 106% on a driven-generator set. Losses are always present."

This not a conclusion based on the emails, you saw no information to prove or disprove your theory. You started off with an opinion, albeit scientific (the conservation laws), as did they (an apparent efficiency of >100%), you exchanged some information and then deduced their claims must be false.

You could have come to this conclusion without any emails being sent as you were never prepared to believe that overunity was possible.

Have I missed something?


Tom Whitworth profile image

Tom Whitworth 5 years ago from Moundsville, WV Author

AdamEgg,

What type of chemicals are you taking LSD it seem you are delusional in your opinion of my opinion!!!!!!

You state the calculations are correct so what!!!

If I say 2+2=4 what have I proved except that I can add and we are talking thermodynamicics did you get your degree from a box of Cracker Jax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come back with conclusions based on engineering and pyhsics or I'll delete your next comment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AdamEgg 5 years ago

As much as I respect your attitude of "I'll insult you and your degree and then delete your retort", I stand by what I said.

As for your comment regarding the calculations, you asked them to verify the meaning of a set of numbers and to elaborate. Admittedly they failed to answer your question, but in times gone by, people believed the Earth was flat. Anyone saying that the Earth was a spheroid would have been considered "wrong". Just because they did not provide a flat-Earth believer with the evidence to justify their claim does not mean that it is incorrect.

Also...no, by stating 2+2=4, you have not proven that we are taking Thermodynamics.

The scientific method determines whether or not things belong in science, results being published and then further testing to validate the results, not a pointless dialogue one person and another who sounds like they are the office administrator. Would the scientists involved really be sat in the office in front of the computer awaiting emails from people like you overusing the exclamation mark?

Thank you for your response - note how I did not resort to ridiculing you or your beliefs. Although I must still point out that I do agree with your opinion.

If I am so drug haggled and my degree is that worthless then maybe my belief in the laws of conservation could also be incorrect.

Thanks again.

Tom,

If that generator produced 130 and was sustained using 30 out 130 then it would be impossible for the generator supply 106 to anything else. Simple math for fifth grader. I agree that promising to give that which is not available for use is like feeding 5000 with normal sized loaves of bread and a few fish and still able to walk away with 12 baskets of leftovers. In other word it would take divine intervention.

I believe in conservation and conversion like any logical person but pulling energy out of thin air would be called a wind powered turbine generator. You have every logical reason to be skeptical don't. Be another trump if something comes your way that may extends or advances the existing laws of physics. Note I did not say defy but extend and advance. Cold was a mere dream once but due to lack of technology like what we have today ideas of the are now more likely than ever with respect to the laws that govern our known universe.


Tom Whitworth profile image

Tom Whitworth 5 years ago from Moundsville, WV Author

objective perspective,

I agree. There may be things yet to be discovered. There is the mystery of dark energy and dark matter in the Universe and if humans are ever intelligent to discover their nature and how to harvest them, we may take giant leaps but until then I will be skeptical of getting something FROM nothing.

bad brain 5 years ago

I majored in math and I think many engineers are kind of stupid in some ways. I am open minded and will believe anything if its proven to me. You speak of these physics laws as if they are absolutely immutable and hence if something violates this law its a scam. Science is not a religion. If they set up one of these EBMs to provide electrical power to a house for 2 years with no power input or magnets running down or hidden wires and if the use of these spreads to many other houses I might tend to believe them, but I still wouldn't buy one of their units. This has a 99.9% chance of being a fraud, but I won't say anything is impossible.


ImJustAvg 4 years ago

Tom, Like you I didn't believe the hype or their claims, BUT if it was a complete scam, I couldn't understand why they would present it at Vienna Free Energy Conference in March of 2010. That is NOT the place that you would expect a scam to be presented! So if nothing else I feel Professor Szabo believes in his project.

My background is in computers and NOT power production so was interested in reading more about his research, but so far, I can only find the claims and not any documented facts. So I will pull up short on calling it a scam, BUT will say I am UNCONVINCED at this time.

Although I do hope that someone will make a breakthough in energy production that will rewrite all the text books, I want to see the documentation and not just wild claims, youtube videos that show "HOJO" motors running but no test read outs.

I am sad to see a conversation like this goes on and on for months and months... why cant you both work together and try to find out the answer, the truth. Try to leave behind all your knowledge and believes, and go with an open mind and try to experience, and try to have a new out come.. lots of medical treatments years ago were considered a joke, and did not match what the book said, but they are been used today. What matters is not what we learned, and and we experienced. What matters is what we can learn next, and push our limits. Remember years ago to see an AIRBUS 380 in the sky was just a sketch or a dream, but now its a reality and guess what I hate to brake this to you there is a plane in production right now in germany that will hold much bigger capacity and its shaped like a triangle. So people, keep an open mind, lets add to our knowledge and not get stuck to ONLY WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED. And PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE .. respect each other, we are all human, scam, or whatever you wish to call it. Respect is an important element anywhere we go.

I was bored and decided to look up new forms of energy. This came up.. Looked it up several places and here I am. I disagree with most of you. (Whitworth relax this is my opinion) Yes I am a scientist. Yes I am successful. My discipline is a little more subjective ( Geology ) and is a combination of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. To understand geology you need to be observation and have an open mind. I've seen all disciplines fail to explain things, I've seen nature reveal some powerful phenomenon that we are only beginning to truly understand. Science has no Law's, only theory. And I actually come from a discipline that has changes quite a but in fundamental "law". Plate Tectonics were heresy, now they are law. I've found great ore deposits in my life based on some principles, and others that still cannot be totally scientifically rationalized. In the science world we are pioneers.

As for this company. From my understanding they are saying they can somehow convert the energy present in Magnetic flux, to kinetic or thermal energy. We need to accept that our current understanding of a magnet post dates our laws of thermodynamics, FACT. Maybe there could have been a special permutation to the equation with magnetism factored in? I don't know... Truth is nobody knows.. Imagine the what the investment blogs would have been like for the wright brothers..(people cant fly...yada yada yada). Not saying these guys are onto something. But if it was an outright scam they still wouldnt be doing it. That I can assure you, somebody somewhere would have launched a class-action lawsuit against them or something.

As for academia. Doesn't mean crap... I could publish lots of papers with what I now have learned. My old professors are puppy dogs that were all to afraid to gets their hands dirty. Also, when I found a deposit, one of the richest mines ever. You better believe no body was publishing anything until we had a winner. Probably like these guys.

Just saying

Tom if the universe is expanding like a baloon and for each action there is a reaction, who is blowing the balloon ? God ??? sorry to say but the laws are wrong... search for the "schwarzschild proton" papper best papper by the universite of Liege in Belgium in 2011

but by this I don't mean ebm works but sure there is a new energy to explore and learn how to work with

Tom,

I have tried to read your initial writeup and skip all the commentary, and I think you may have an error in your premise. The premise that I would propose you are missing is not in your understanding of the theory of conservation of energy, which is a 'law' only by popular belief(I digress), but rather in your understanding of electrical 'generation'. While it is easy to stand behind the theories of others and claim science, I think you may be missing the point, as the theory(yes I will not claim true or not) of overunity does not conflict with the theory of conservation of energy. Here's a real question for you- How does the law of conservation of energy apply to a gas-electric generator? The theory is input of chemical power, output kinetic power, convert to electrical power, right? Obviously there are a significant number of losses here because of friction, etc. But let's get to the heart of it- when it actually comes to 'generating' electricity.

Is there a physical contact between the rotating drive shaft and the magnets used to 'generate' electricity(a pulse of already existing electrons knocked out of orbit in a chain reaction)? The answer is NO. unless your explanation of this 'generation' is that the air between these contacts is the media through which the transfer of energy from kinetic to electrical is happening, there is NO CONVERSION of energy, therefore the law of conservation of energy is foiled. There are 2 separate energy processes happening here- the process to supply kinetic energy to a rotating shaft with magnets, and the passing of those magnets accross copper wires to knock electrons out of orbit from their atoms. According to this theory of conservation of energy, these electrons must come from somewhere, right? and if they are not being transmitted from the initial reaction of internal combustion, then from where? I don't have an answer, but a theory maybe- these electrons are gathered from ambient matter, when an electron is missing from one atom, it must be replaced by another, right? So here's the point- this 'generation' of electricity is NOT a generation at all, it is a COLLECTION. The energy already exists in ambient matter, and lightning is your proof that there is a significant amount of 'static' or free moving electrons.

So there is one of your premise mismatches, and the other is this: trying to qualify magnetism, a known phenomenon for which we have no explanation and little understanding, into the theory of conservation of energy. That is like trying to apply the law of conservation of energy to a nuclear power plant, and attempting to attack the efficiencies of such by pointing out that it takes more energy to mine, refine, and use uranium than the reaction creates. Or would you also propose that?

My point Tom, and I believe that you are clever enough to sort the details, is that this company may or may not be a scam, but the concept of electrical generation, or better put 'electrical collection' leaves much to be explored, and the principle of overunity is quite possible, just as farming has a net output greater than the energy input- because the net gain comes from the earth, we are merely attempting to harness energy that already exists- not create it.

Jeremy,

You sound like Charlie Brown's teacher. In the case of nuclear, mass is being converted into energy,as the law of conservation is of mass/energy, not energy alone. A heat pump seems to violate that law until one looks at the thermal heat transfer do to refrigerant and electrical input and realize there is no violation. Show where the magical energy comes from in the case of the wonderous magical generator or go back to lecturing Charlie.
