Direct transformation of heat in electricity
St. Petersburg's inventor Tatiana Nikolaievna Verbitskaia
worked with non-linear capacitors from 1960. The term "varicond" is her
word that is now the official note. In the past the variconds were used
in the electronic systems for variation of oscillation frequency but now
non-linear diodes are used. So, research work on variconds was decelerated. Before Zaev's paper, the application of variconds to produce excess power was not discussed. Now one can calculate how much power can be produced by a non-linear capacitor for certain frequency, capacity, and
voltage. The next stage of work is the research to discover the type of highly non-linear dielectric material which can demonstrate maximum difference between work of charge and work on discharge for capacitor. New technology is dependent on new material here.
I must note that non-linear ferrite material is more widely produced
and it is easier to make the experiments for extraction of excess heat
for magnetization-demagnetization process. There are different versions
for utilization of "universal hysteresis curve" when the work of structuring/ordering
(electric charging process, magnetization and so on) is less than the work
(electric discharge, demagnetization ...).
Anyone have serious interest and financial possibility for development of this work, please contact Ms. Tatiana Verbitskaia directly by phone 7-812-5520083 (home), or 7-812-5529053 (her laboratory in St. Petersburg's Institute of Condensers). She can speak English.
