Directory:James D. Hardy's Self-Looped Water Pump and Electricity Generator

From PESWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Massachusetts inventor demonstrates a patent pending technology in which a 165 gallon/minute water pump powers a water wheel, which is connected through belts to a generator, which powers the water pump as well as an incandescent bulb.

The system very clearly violates several known "laws of physics", with losses through each of the energy transfer mechanisms; yet there it is apparently "self-running." If this is indeed a legitimate demonstration, a possible explanation is that the generator somehow harvests electromagnetic energy from the environment.

Validation Pending 
As of July 16, 2008, the New Energy Congress has been in discussion with James Hardy about going in to inspect his prototype. An NEC advisor lives just a few miles away. Since that time, as of Aug. 15, 2008, Hardy has not yet had the machine ready for inspection. He said that as soon as it is, he will welcome validation.

March 10, 2013 Update: This could be a variation of the Directory:Motor-Generator Self-Looped with Usable Energy Left Over genre.

(8.04 Minutes) Future of Energy

  • Future of Energy - First portion shows water pump strength. Next the water pump is shown powering a water wheel, which is connected through belts to a generator, which powers what appears to be a 100-Watt bulb as well as the water pump. (YouTube; July 14, 2008)

How it Works

On July 14, 2008, T Lee Buyea <ranger116 {at}> wrote:

Self running and producing 600 extra watts, it is a basic prototype for proof of process.

Pumps 165 gallons a minute on a 1.5 horse power electric motor. Quite a feat for 1.5 horse power.

He has also modified the generator. The capacitors on the generator are not large enough to keep it running for the test times of 15 and 30 minutes he has run it.

The inventor does not want small investors; just one large investor -- preferably with his own lab/shop and engineers to bring the generator forward to production.

The investor will have complete freedom to examine the generator including disassembling it.

This invention is a device for generating electricity. A liquid pump pumps liquid through a tube to a nozzle. The nozzle directs a stream of liquid at a waterwheel. The waterwheel drives a shaft with a large diameter belt wheel. The wheel drives a belt which in turn drives a small diameter belt wheel. The small diameter belt wheel drives a generator which produces electricity for external use and also the electricity to drive the liquid pump.


Q. Why bother with a water pump at all. Why not just hook up an electric motor to the generator for the closed loop? The water pump missing would eliminate one loss-source in the 'loop' & increase output!

A. Hardy said he tried that and it didn't work.

The principle may be related to the water itself acting as an energy absorber, similar to Victor Schauberger's fluted, vortical tubes through which water was pulsed. At a particular frequency, pressure in the pipes (reportedly) dropped to zero, at the same time manifesting a cold form of electricity with levitation. Cold electricity appears to be positronic, or at least absent the electrons associated with conventional "hot" electricity. However, a simple pressure drop in the pipework, easing the burden on the pump, would allow for an over-unity gain at the output, even without the notice or exploitation of cold energy flows.

Generators powering motors, powering generators, is possible, so long as one has a higher efficiency than the other, and this can be accomplished with different magnet rotor-stator pole configurations, firing sequences and gearing / belt-pulley ratios.

For simple fluid-power over-unity devices, See: Van Valkinburg, Lee Rogers, patents several decades prior.
