Re: OPNIONS WANTED sounds too good to be true

I read a couple of books about Nikola Tesla. I think i am pretty smart and my iq score verifies that. but that MAN makes me feel like a moran. I have tried delving into the math of ac induction motors and read books about them. Tesla invented them from scratch. He also invented the hystresis ac watt...

Re: OPNIONS WANTED sounds too good to be true

Thanks for the list of search engines I'll check them out. My feelings about this Tesla engine are in the air. From what i know about patents is you need megabucks to protect them. If you have good intentions for them you must be able to protect them from thr greedy corperations out there for once t...

Re: OPNIONS WANTED sounds too good to be true

The only thing this guy Einstein gave us is a limit called the speed of light look in google about how he is wrong.This is an expanding universe accelerating as it ages. According to the big bang theory that can not happen there goes another law of thermodynamics.Look around you with wide open eyes ...

On that hot water heater idea a thermostat from one could maybe tweaked to get to 170 or so degrees.

Re: A HVAC THERMOSTAT USING A PIC

why overcomplicate things? A comparator a zenar diode a pot and a temperature sensitive resistor will do the job just fine with the help of a few inpensive parts.

Re: Isolated PWM control of 120 VAC load with 4-20mA signal

+if you need isolation, you need a transformer.The advantage of using pwm in isolation circuts delivering corrent at any voltage is the fact that transformers run at high frequencies much more efficiently on a cost per pound basis than at low frequeccies like 60 cps.To proprely utilize pwm, you must...

Re: Darlington transistors, more bang for the buck.

there are a lot of logic level mosfets out there ckeck out parts houses. I think they are easier to design with than darlingtons or any other type of transistor.The only thing you have to remember is to turn them off as well as on.

Re: A Thought Experiment - Thermoelectrics and Cars

maybe you could tuck another radiator somewhere under the car with an electric fan and connect it to the cooling system.
