In the 1980s, long before my computer days, i experimented with simple AC energizing of coils. This was one of my earliest curiosities. What would happen with multiple axes or multi axis coils. Each coil at varied angles, but with the same centroids. Two or more connected in series and one or more coil(s) as a 'pickup' coil. The input waveform was observed along with the output waveform. For the most part the output bore distinct harmonics . One day i placed a small magnet inside -- It spun around vigorously. This tennis ball form work, for my multiaxial, also allowed inserting other coils inside. All for my fascination with induction. One day i placed a small magnet inside, energized it with weak AC (such as low volt, low amp current from utility). The magnet vigorously spun around. My expectation was that this was simply due to intermittent engagement with multiple axes, (of the multiple coils).
In those days, my rural isolation left me to explore imagination with rare visits to small libraries or bookstores. Finally, i saw images of great resonance for me. It was labelled 'poloid', but since that time the word has been very clouded with extreme irrelevance. Google/Images to see what i mean. So i reworded many of my images. It seemed to me the typical disinfo efforts, on the web-- By those who want to discourage human experimentation of biaxial and multiaxial induction. This page explores one aspect which is visually apparent in poloidal coil like structures.
(Below. CAD picture here suggests a cross section of a coil circuit).
The use of 3D computer graphics offers interesting evidence which is difficult to explore otherwise. Poloidal coils can take a variety of forms. In the following model many copies of the same "poloidal geometry" are placed into grid arrangement. The first image (below), shows an overhead view with zero angle of perspective, (axonometric).
..... Research & Development Through Free Exchange of Ideas
Enersearch was incorporated in 1980 but never materialized financially. A synergy of concepts were developed and are reflected in the pages of this series. The synergy continues as a single handed effort of Bo Atkinson, in Maine, USA. ..Note: These pages are placed in the public domain and are furnished "as is". The author assumes no responsibility for the use or misuse of the concepts in this series. All authorities should be satisfied first, as might be required, by relevant laws, before any building proceeds.
