CANADIAN BREAKTHROUGH ON THE ONE (KILO)WATT CHALLENGE
by Dr. Harold Aspden
Research by Dr. Paulo N. Correa and Alexandra N. Correa of Concord, Ontario, Canada provides convincing evidence of over-unity electrical power regeneration. Their experimental data show numerous tests involving the discharge of a source bank of 12 volt cells as the powered apparatus recharges an output bank of cells and/or runs an electric motor. Within 20 minutes of typical operation, 0.988 kilowatt-hour of energy is generated for an input of 0.258 kilowatt-hours. This is the first of many tests described and listed in data tabled in a U.S. Patent which includes copious experimental detail along with 21 figures.
The 'one-watt challenge' has become history! This latest breakthrough makes 1995, as was expected, a year that would be one to remember. It should also be remembered as a year in which the U.S. Patent Office granted a patent that so clearly demonstrated what scientists believe to be 'impossible'. Performance efficiencies are clearly shown in the figures by data plots on a scale that runs to 1000%. In granting this patent the Patent Office therefore knew precisely that this invention was claiming something revolutionary in energy conversion and generation!
I feel that if I try here to summarize the Correa invention I cannot accord it the justice it deserves. Readers will wish to read the patent specification themselves. It is U.S. Patent Serial No. 5,449,989 granted on September 12, 1995. Suffice it to say that the apparatus uses the pulsed abnormal glow of a discharge tube, which, as physicists well know, has a negative resistance characteristic. What physicists have not appreciated, until this Correa disclosure, was the real possibility or the knowledge of precisely how to go about extracting 'free' energy by exciting self-sustaining oscillations in the plasma discharge. Undoubtedly, Dr. Correa's Labofex facility in Canada will have mustered a great deal of know how from research on this project and we will hear more as that work comes to commercial fruition. For my part, I am indebted to Dr. Correa for his kindness in drawing this recently issued patent to my special attention.
