    Welding the core plates together only to prevent unwanted noise from core plates becoming unlaminated and vibrating.. more likely in kitchen appliances to keep them from making noise ..old high intensity discharge lamps like in a warehouse have a distinct buzzing sound from this very thing..

    What is the thing called that is a solar panel powering a led that is connected to the solar panel? Was it some sort of force or energy?

  • Chuckiele

    I guess your breaker didnt break because the transformer took huge amounts of current but barely any power because of the horrific power factor? Would be a bad breaker though, if it worked like that.

    • Chuckiele

      +jim halcom Well yeah, but that slow at that huge current?

    • jim halcom
      jim halcom

      breakers are designed to delay so that the high torque and starting current of most power saws and heavy tools can start up without tripping the breakers. so that is completely normal Because of the delay of breakers it is nessesary to put fast blo fuses close to the electronic equipment

    You Sir, are mad, lol But wow it gets you plenty clicks to get some nice 'scopes and keep you in Pizza :) Incidentally Microwave Oven Transformers MOT's)- I figure the weld is just a region on the outside, so the area of current loop is pretty small Also remember the application - whilst that transformer is active, its pretty much alwys at full load. The naughty chunk of weld will only be an issue if you wanted to keep efficiency at LIGHT loads - and it makes em quick & easy to manuafacture Just my 10 cents - Greet's from London !

    You said eddy currents make any conductor magnetic. Not if it is strongly diamagnetic (copper is only slightly diamagnetic). Here is a video of a graphite (conductive but very strong diamagnetic) not producing the Lenz law effect because there is no magnetic induction in the first place to produce the eddy currents: Also you explanation about why transformers work is wrong. It is because Faraday magnetic induction law and not because eddy currents which is an effect due to Lenz-Faraday laws. Also superconductors do not work because eddy currents. This theory was disproved since many years now.

    If you made the foil thicker by winding a whole lot more aluminum it MIGHT have worked.. But the gap between the foil and magnet is large. :(

    Technically, I think you ALSO just discovered a POSSIBLE METHOD of Eddy Current-based Refrigeration! Since he can cause Iron cores that HEAT UP FAST from eddy currents, couldn't you ALSO use those same eddy currents to MOVE THAT SAME HEAT AWAY QUICKLY away from the same iron core or transfer excess heat to and/or from ANOTHER NEARBY core? i.e. create such a large temperature differential that refrigeration happens in a electromotive manner similar to what happens in a mechanically-based Stirling Engine? I suspect you could use Eddy Currents to create cryogenic cooling to levels in the 50 Degrees Kelvin or colder! I think it might even get cold enough to make Liquid Helium! How about exploring whether eddy current can be used in refrigeration! P.S.

    • StarGateSG7

      I think you can use the Magneto-Caloric Effect as outlined in the following article: by using eddy currents to heat up Copper, Tungsten, Silver, Gold and/or ferrous metal blocks or sticks which can oscillate localized magnetic fields and then cause adiabatic demagnetization and remagnetization which will THEN LIKELY (i'm personally not sure as I haven't tested that yet!) create Peltier-like or Thomsen Effect heat transfer which can supercool the local environment. Even Paramagnetic metals such as Aluminum, Magnesium, Manganese, Nickel, etc. could be used for this type of Eddy-current-based refrigeration. If someone could design-in the proper eddy-current-based heating of ALUMINUM, then REALLY CHEAP and FAST magnetic refrigeration would NOW be a possibility for home/food cooling, industrial refrigeration and micro-sized computer CPU/GPU cooling for use within desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphones which means REALLY FAST computers could be run at MUCH HIGHER clock speeds so we can have IBM-Mainframe-on-a-Chip supercomputing! AND if we can do magnetic refrigeration using ALUMINUM, it would NOW BE POSSIBLE to supercool plain old AIR so we could directly get Liquid Nitrogen and/or Liquid Oxygen from it so we can supercool just about ANYTHING else on a super-inexpensive basis! THAT would allow home-based medical labs-on-a-chip to be bought by ANYONE for a cheap price. You could have actual refrigerators or freezers to be EASILY built-into cars, boats and planes or into portable devices or even CLOTHING! You could ALSO cool your cases of beer and wine in less than 10 seconds! . P.S. These ideas are now FREE and OPEN SOURCE disclosed under and operating under the terms of the GNU GPL3 licence terms for hardware and software systems research, development and end-use! . .

    Dear Mehdi hi, Thanks for great and very informative videos. Mate, I need your help if it will possible please. I need you to tell me how to create a weak (safe) Electrical Current and/or, how to build a weak Electrostatic please, I give the scenario first; imagine there is a tick plastic container (around 1 or 2 gallons) with some kind of Resin and a few piece of wood, it is actually a vacuum chamber. Now, I need that weak electrical current or electrostatic in that Resin by placing the producer (device or anything) of them while the vacuum pump is taking the air out of the chamber for the period of time it is on (could be couple of hours). Just imagine painting a car by using electrostatic to have a more smooth and indelible result/paint. Will that be possible please to tell me how to do it? Cheers mate.
