MOST PROBABLY BOGUS


Peter Sumaruck has come up with a technology and company he has named Zero-Amp Tech. He claims that for only a minuscule amount of electrical energy that is put in, the output is multi-thousand fold.

As of Nov. 30, 2008, two New Energy Congress members who viewed the demonstration are not convinced that overunity is exhibited, given several factors that must be taken into consideration. [1] [2]

Jan. 29, 2009 memo. We have spoken with someone who is expert at motor controller operation, and he said that any good motor controller programmer could replicate the effect Pete was showing in about half an hour -- nothing extraordinary.

On March 30, 2009, Sumaruck posted a video allegedly showing his system running a light and a fan for three hours with no deminishing of the input batteries. New Energy Congress advisor, Tom Valone submitted a skeptical review saying, "The video looks interesting but there are TWO BIG problems called storage batteries, along with no acknowledged consideration by Peter of the POWER FACTOR as he does his calculations."

Because of a variety of connections I made with individuals in the New Energy community, on November 20, people started pouring in, wanting Peter Sumaruck to give them demonstrations of his technology - the tsunami began. You have heard of Warren Buffett's Snowball, Think of this as Pete's tsunami; it was big, quick and to the point. People flew in, drove in, up to Pete's garage - they wanted to see for themselves. That's how it is, seeing is believing. PESWiki contacted me, asking me to fill in the blanks on this site. What you see is part PES, and part Charlotte Wilson www.worldviewopinion.com.

Videos

Three-Hour Demo

Allegedly shows Pete running his motor for three hours with no diminishing of input battery levels or generation of heat in the driving components, while the same set-up without his technology would supposedly only power the output for two hours, draining the batteries.

Set-up Demonstration and Photo Album

(8 minutes)

  • Demonstration of Peter Sumaruck's "Zero Amp Tech" (YouTube; Dec. 1, 2008)
  • See video report at PESN

Video, taken Nov. 24, 2008 by Sterling D. Allan, CEO of PES Network, Inc., shows Peter Sumaruck's demonstration taking place in his garage near San Francisco, in which a generator powers a modified variable AC motor controller with (purportedly) a small fraction of a Watt input; while the controller runs five AC motors: three rated at 2 horsepower, and two rated at 7.5 HP. After the motors come up to speed, they are said to consume far more energy than what is being input from the generator. A report by Sterling at PESN gives his reasons for subsequent skepticism.

In the second part of this video, Pete is shown flipping through his photo album of the purported self-running generator he built for the U.S. Army at Fort Hood, Texas before the project was shut down by two Texas politicians with nuclear energy industry ties. He claims that it self-ran and put out 36 kilowatts, able to handle loads from to 0 to 36 kW, coming and going, without changing speed or sound. He claims that he plugged ninety 300-Watt bulbs in to it, and that it was so bright the people viewing the demo were temporarily blinded. He said this system was in resonance so that a stethoscope placed on any component in the system sounded the same. He claimed that the system could last for thirty years -- the life of a mortgage -- with the only maintenance being to change the three belts.

How it Works

Purported:

Put in a minuscule amount of electrical energy - only enough for ignition (that’s the only cost) - but the output is multi-thousand fold. This is electrical power without batteries - no cord, no recharge. Since this power production uses no fossil fuels, there is no emission and therefore no pollution. After ignition, the generator operates at 100% efficiency - no heat, so no breakdowns - and runs until you decide to turn it off. Size of task is not an issue; a Zero-Amp Tech generator can be built to power an entire city or any size vehicle.

"Sumaruck takes a new or existing truck - an 18 wheel for example - made to order, with no engine. He installs a replacement turbine drive system (on the same principles as Hoover Dam). The sealed 100 gallon tank using salt water (or any water) is under very high pressure; the turbine is constructed of aluminum alloy and copper clad, and powered by a 10 to 500 horsepower 3 phase AC motor.
The standard transmission is kept in place, as well as the alternator and on board battery to power lights and air conditioner. This Zero-Amp Tech adapted truck can travel at the same speeds reached by diesel-powered trucks. In fact, Sumaruck can modify this system even further for extremely long hauls and very heavy loads like those roaring down long stretches of nowhere across the Australian Outback. Zero-Amp Technology can adapt this operating system to other large vehicles: buses, garbage trucks, cement mixers - the list goes on.
Very little maintenance is needed because nothing is stressed - three fan belts, changed maybe every 200,000 miles. Sumaruck uses heavy duty parts - if 2 in. wide is common place, he uses a 4 inch wide belt.
Some of this may sound straightforward, even simple. Sumaruck says yes, but “the complicated part is in the computer hard drive.” That’s where the genius work takes place. Through 2 small 44 gage wires, ignition comes in at .019 mA (milliamps), and comes out at 150 amps, non-fluctuating, precisely 60 cycles." (Worldview Opinion; July 28, 2008)

Costs

Purported:

Cost for this technology comes from licensing the invention and production of one or many units depending on type, function and size. But when you look down into the operation itself, to reiterate, the only cost is for ignition. That 18-wheel truck can run for a year on only 6 gallons of gas (no diesel), and home or factory heat, light and power costs will become nonexistent.

Advantages

Purported:

  • Only milliamps are used to generate high horsepower motors.
  • No limit to the size of the unit.
  • Vagaries of weather will not stop the production of power. Only the complete destruction of the unit will stop it from working…or you turning it off.
  • Even when very large, the unit is compact and easy to operate.
  • It can be mobile; you own it; you take it with you.
  • Cost is one of the miracles - in a housing development, cost can be built into the price of the home. A factory typically can spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on power - now down to “0.”
  • We will still need oil for chemicals and plastics, but we will no longer need fossil fuels to produce energy.
  • Nuclear power has been made redundant - now if a country wants to expand their nuclear capabilities we clearly know why.

Applications

Purported:

  • Any size or type of vehicle.
  • Variable-Speed Electric Motors.
  • Power for cruise or merchant ships - air and water pollution eliminated.
  • Desalination plants will be powered by Zero-Amp Tech - no more droughts, and deserts will be green.
  • No need to build new hydroelectric plants.
  • Zero-Amp Tech generators can power one home or an entire development - or an entire city.
  • You can still stay on the grid, but your power will be made without the use of fossil fuels or nuclear power - no emissions, no pollution.
  • Factories, universities, hospitals - any large facility can have its own power production unit.
  • Waste disposal sites will now be able to be limited in size.
  • In the future, even the smallest motor boat and home appliance will be powered this way.
  • Agriculture can benefit from this power system - from farm equipment to fertilizer. Rain forests can regrow, and we can eliminated famine in our lifetime.
  • If you can imagine it, and it runs on electricity, it will be powered by Zero-Amp Technology.

Independent Testing

Zero-Amp Technology was purportedly tested by the United States Army from 2003 to 2004 - units operated perfectly from day one.

Patents

Peter Sumaruck claims to have more than 14 patents (none found on record). Individual patent information is private to the owner, for security purposes. He plans to keep the "provisional" status until a funder is secured.
