A solid-state magnetic generator was invented by Captain Hans Coler of Germany and a 10 watt example first shown in 1925. It involved magnets to generate electricity and employed a small battery but no other source of input power other than what he called space energy of Nature's quantum invisible world.

It was denied patent protection by the German Patent Office as being a perpetual motion device. For a time it was ignored, and the records relating to it were buried in hidden archives, possibly because the scientists who had to pass judgement could not understand the physical reason why the invention actually worked.

Later, a 70 Watt prototype was built, and a company formed: Coler Gmbh. Later a 5 kilowatt devices was built which allegedly powered Coler's house and laboratory for three years.

Official interest was shown by heads of the German navy who felt an investigation was necessary, and an official report was produced. A highly secret Nazi effort apparently had the goal of using his invention to recharge submarine batteries, without the need for the sub to surface. Experts examined the device and could find no fraud. It was judged Coler was an honest experimenter, but no expert opinion was forth coming as to how the unit operated. It was put under Official Secrecy after its operation had been verified by Government scientists. (Reference: articles entitled Perpetual Commotion and Hans Coler on )

We don't know of anyone who has been able to successfully replicate this technology into a practical device.

None, as the inventor died long ago, and no one entity is continuing the company work as its legal successor, that we know of.

How it Works

The Magnetstromapparat

The Magnetstromapparat consisted of six permanent magnets wound so that the circuit includes the magnet itself as well as the windings. These six magnet-coils are arranged in a hexagon and connected in a circuit that includes two small condensers, a switch and a pair of solenoid coils, one sliding inside the other. To operate the device, the switch is left open, the magnets are moved slightly apart, and the sliding coils set into various positions. After the appropriate adjustments, at a critical separation of the magnets, an indicator appears on the voltmeter. The switch is then closed and the adjustments continue. Tension builds to a maximum and should then remain indefinitely. The greatest tension obtained was stated to be 12 volts.


The Stromerzeuger

The apparatus consists of three principle circuits which are inter-wound and intercoupled (verkoppelt) in a peculiar way. Some of these are divided again into single subsidiary circuits which evidently have all to be brought into resonance with one another.

The principle circuits (called the anchor) in which the energy gain probably occurs, consists of metal plates between which transformer coils are connected, the whole being connected to one large plate coil (Plattenspule).

On each of the single windings on this is coupled a large flat coil (Flachspule) (called field).

These flat coils are interwoven in two groups, these groups represent the turns of a transformer.

This couples, on one hand on the flat coils of the other group (as secondary coils), and on the other hand on the anchor-plate coil, which is placed between them.

The third electrically independent circuit (called the directing circuit) (Steuerkreis) regulates this transference.

This basic diagram shows the conditions necessary for self-interruption.

In consequence of this arrangement, different types of current are created in different conductors (pulsed direct current, alternating current, etc.)

The transformer coils, connected between the anchor plates, are connected in a peculiar way through thin permanent magnet rods. Their main object seems to be to pre-magnetize the transformer cores, it is, however, very probable that they are also connected with the Barckhausen effect, also shown by JLN Labs.

1. The basic principle is that an electron is to be regarded not only as a negatively charged particle but also as a South magnetic pole.

The basic element is that of an open secondary circuit, capacity loaded, inductively coupled to a primary circuit. The novel feature is that the capacities are connected to the secondary core through permanent magnets, as shown.

It is claimed that, on switching on the primary circuit, "separation of charges" takes place, i.e M1 becomes + vely charged and M2 - vely charged, and that these charges are "magnetically polorised" when they formed, owing to the presence of the magnets.

On switching off the primary circuit a "reversing current" flows in the secondery, but the magnets "do not exert a polarising effect on this reversal"

2. Two of these basic elements are now placed together making a double system or stage with the plates close together in parallel planes as shown:

The secondary windings are both exactly equal and wound in a direction such that on switching on the primary coil the electrons in the secondary coil flow from P1 to P2 and F1 to F2.

It is then stated that system F1 - F2 merely has an inducing effect, and the useful current comes into existence in the system P1 -P2.

3. A single stage cannot be effective but two stages connected so that the numbers of effective North and South poles are equal will provide a basic working arrangement.

More double stages can then be added to provide higher outputs.

4. It is then stated that as well as the normal electrons flowing from the battery and induction when the circuit is opened or closed "space electrons" flow from "repelling spaces" to "attracting spaces" between the plates.

General principle of operation

The general principle of Coler free energy machine is quite simple theoretically. It is simply a combination of coils with the total effective negative magnetic permeability due to the coils core material and the interaction between them.

When the current changes inside the normal coil with the inductance L it induces the voltage E equal E=- L dI/dt. While it is shortcutted with the the resistor R the current is the solution to the ordinary differential equation I R = -L dI /dt and for normal coils decays down exponentially as I(t) = Io Exp(- R/L t) but when L<0 the current in the system of solenoids with the negative L grows to infinity and so the energy accumulates !!!. Obviously for the more physical system not to explode the negative L will be the function of the current itself, namely L(I) and finally will grow to 0 so the current will settle. The simplest example is the single solenoid but with the perfectly oversuperconducting core. The permeability of the perfect superconductor is exactly zero but one can imagine the hypothetical one with the opposite to that of the vacuum, negative and equal to minus one. Therefore according to the Faraday law the voltage induced in such coil has the same polarity that the voltage generating the current so they add up to further enhance the self induction. This is of course the perpetuum mobile in principle but in the true device is simply taking the energy from cooling the core to be constantly (over)superconducting since it is also the transformer between the unlimited above the Meissner current with zero voltage and the outer wire.

For the two neighboring solenoids when their wires are of the opposite helicity i.e when their magnetic fields act against each other (S-S or N-N configuration), one with the inductance L1 and the other L2 the total inductance L is equal L=L1+L2 - 2 M, where M is the mutual inductance which gives L=0 for the symmetric and strongly coupled solenoids with the normal ferromagnetic. The gole of the Coler machine is to achieve M> (L1+L2)/2 so the L is less than 0. For three solenoids the inductance will be L=L1+L2+L3 - 2 M12 - 2 M13 - 2 M23 and so on. The more solenoids the easier it seems to make the L negative by couplings only since the condition becomes weaker and weaker.

Some ferromagnets have the negative magnetic permeability when polariton resonance exists, so electromagnets with magnet cores and their combinations will extract the electromagnetic energy from the environment near this resonance to measurable currents and Coler machine works at least from the principle with the technology mentioned.

The voltage in true Coler machine therefore originates from accumulation of all the electromagnetic energy around of all radio frequencies due to the negative inductance of the integrating antenna.

The original wrong theoretical assumption of Coler that the electrons are magnetic monopoles is not any problem here since the direct coupling of additional magnetization due to the voltage on the magnetic core exists due to two known effects, simply the electrostriction and than piezomagnetism (note the direct conduction through magnets inside coils). The voltages on the coil will change the shape of the magnetic core while this change will induce extra magnetic fields being equivalent to accumulation of the monopole magnetic charges which can further overinduce currents without the work back contributing to negative inductance. As a matter of fact the assumption of electromagnetism with magnetic charges is not changing any principle of operation as the only difference is that electrons would change magnetization by injection but not the spin polarization due to electrostriction-piezomagnetism.

For the true machine the correction therefore exists from the gravity waves which deform the coils and from the piezoelectricity and piezomagnetism so the original patent should not be rejected since the machine operates according to real science at infinitesimal powers.

The simulatory powered version of the device which can "produce" arbitrary power can be easy build with the system of intelligent coils with electronic amplifiers, having extra powered coils hidden inside the coupled coils of the hexagon which will be equivalent to hypothetical injection of south poles electron to overinduce currents in neighboring coils without the destructive feedback work on the original current coil. And even simple version with amplifier can be build simulating oversuperconducting coil with the transformer with powered outer wire such that the induced current is reverced by amplification of negligible part of the first coil current and therefore helps the original in the first wire with induction current in the same direction. This leads to the exponential growth of the current in the first coil, and without the fuse theoretically to infinity. Note that as a matter of fact in the presence of some external electromagnetic energy even a single coil can be seen as having the effective negative inductance. Let E=-L dI/dt + dΦ/dt, where Φ is an external magnetic flux. It is enough to assume dΦ/dt=L1 dI/dt, than E=-(L-L1) dI/dt and for sufficiently large external flux change L-L1<0, which is the case of a normal radio absorbing only small part and only of the electromagnetic waves around.

  • This device is a variant and the successor to the "Magnetstromapparat" and the "Stromerzeuger" (= Magnet Current Apparatus / Electricity Generator; see the Coler Report). It is NOT dependent on earths magnetic field, can operate everywhere, without fuel and without moving parts. As the magnetic field is rotating in itself, the power can be increased considerably by increasing the "rotating" frequency and when we will be able to use superconductors at room temperature.

The "Magnetstromapparat" was developed by Captain Hans Coler and Fritz Von Unruh early in 1933, and they were later assisted by Franz Haid of Siemens-Schukert, who built himself a model that worked in December 1933. Coler stated that the strength of the magnets did not decrease during use of the apparatus; and suggested that he was tapping a new sort of energy hitherto unknown. -- "Raumenergie" (Space-Energy).

In 1933 Coler and von Unruh made up a slightly larger model with an output of 70 watts. This was demonstrated to Dr. F. Modersohn, who obtained from Schumann and Kloss confirmation of their tests in 1926. Modershon then consented to back the invention, and formed a company (Coler G.m.b.h.) to continue the development.

Modersohn´s connection with Rhein- metall Borsig, and hence with the official Hermann Goering combine gave him an advantage in this. Coler then in 1937 built for the Company a larger version with an output of six kilowatts. He claimed it powered his house and laboratory for three years. This led in 1943 to support by the German Navy. A highly secret Nazi effort apparently had the goal of using his invention to recharge submarine batteries, without the need for the sub to surface.
