Tesla offered this visionary assessment of why the World System was not implemented: "The world was not prepared for it. It was too far ahead of time.
But the same laws will prevail in the end and make it a triumphal success. Let the future tell the truth and evaluate each one according to their work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I really worked, is mine.
The contributors to Harnessing the Wheelwork of Nature are primarily physicists and engineers who are experts in Tesla technology. Their wealth of knowledge demonstrates their mastery of this highly progressive and technical subject. This is a very readable and profusely illustrated reference volume on wireless transmission of electrical energy, besides being an excellent biographical gold mine of Tesla history.
A compilation of essays, papers and technical briefings on the emerging Tesla technology with the potential to change the way we telecommunicate, and derive, transmit and utilize electrical energy. Tom Valone has compiled this highly illustrated, fascinating and technical volume on the coming age of super-science envisioned by Tesla over years ago!
Tesla also recognized that an atmospheric and a terrestrial storage battery exists here on earth, just waiting to be tapped for the good of mankind. Therefore, this is the wheelwork of nature that we want to explore in this book. Andrija Puharich, whose unpublished biographical manuscript is rich with personal insights. It is surprisingly practical, even today, as the brilliant minds in this book prove. Tesla was at least a century ahead of his time, however, so people stole his ideas, left him penniless, and ignored his saintly concern for the human race.
Today we are faced with the consequences of the fateful decision in by J. He is reported to have complained that he would not be able to collect money from the customer in any feasible way. Today the U. Energy Association in Washington, DC trains representatives from the former Russian states how to reliably do the same in their countries.
No one, except for the few great physicists like Drs. Rauscher, Corum, Bass, and Van Voorhies found in this book, has realized that Tesla was very practical when he proposed the resonant generation and wireless transmission of useful electrical power, after returning from his experiments at Colorado Springs in Tesla knew that the earth could be treated as one big spherical conductor and the ionosphere as another bigger spherical conductor, so that together they have parallel plates and thus, comprise a "spherical capacitor.
Rauscher calculates the capacitance to be about 15, microfarads for the complete earth-ionosphere cavity capacitor. In comparison to the 3 billion kW available from the earth system, it is possible to calculate what the U. In , about 11 Quads quadrillion Btu were actually used by consumers for electrical needs, which is equal to 3. Dividing by the hours in a year, we find that only million kW are needed on site to power our entire country.
This would still leave 2. The really shameful U. No other energy production system of any kind in the world has so much wastefulness. Instead of trying to build 2 power plants per week at MW each for the next 20 years only to have a total of additional 6 trillion kWh available by , as some U.
As Tesla himself said, "In the near future we shall see a great many uses of electricity; we shall be able to disperse fogs by electric force and powerful and penetrative rays; wireless plants will be installed for the purpose of illuminating the oceans; picture transmission by ordinary telegraphic methods will soon be achieved; another valuable novelty will be a typewriter electrically operated by the human voice; we shall have smoke annihilators, dust absorbers, sterilizers of water, air, food and clothing; it will become next to impossible to contract disease germs and country folk will go to town to rest and get well" "If we use fuel to get our power, we are living on our capital and exhausting it rapidly.
This method is barbarous and wantonly wasteful and will have to be stopped in the interest of coming generations. The inevitable conclusion is that water power is by far our most valuable resource.
On this humanity must build its hopes for the future. With its full development and a perfect system of wireless transmission of the energy to any distance, man will be able to solve all the problems of material existence. Distance, which is the chief impediment to human progress, will be completely annihilated in thought, word, and action. Humanity will be united, wars will be made impossible, and peace will reign supreme. With this power plant it will be practicable to attain electrical activities up to 10 million horsepower 7.
The essay by Toby Grotz on the wireless transmission of power is a great introduction to this wireless power system of Tesla. It contains all of the details for a preliminary test of the system.
His Figure 5 also illustrates the transmission of a high voltage pulse of electricity equally around the world where it rebounds at the opposite side and returns to its source, repeating the cycle many times.
Grotz also worked with Dr. Corum on "Project TESLA," which was a business venture designed to implement the wireless transmission of electricity. He explains in great detail the meaning of magnification as Tesla intended, with examples and equations. The second is the "Realization" which illustrates the usefulness of the power transmission concept. Tesla wrote, "That electrical energy can be economically transmitted without wires to any terrestrial distance, I have unmistakably established in numerous observations, experiments and measurements, qualitative and quantitative.
These have demonstrated that it is practicable to distribute power from a central plant in unlimited amounts, with a loss not exceeding a small fraction of one per cent in the transmission, even to the greatest distance, twelve thousand miles - to the opposite end of the globe.
It is also understood that Tesla planned to include stationary resonant wave creation as part of the wireless transmission of power. Examining the pair of patents , and , each using the same figure on the first page, we find in the first patent that Tesla has designed a quarter-wave antenna 50 miles of secondary coil wire for a mile long wavelength. More importantly is the sphere on the top which is supposed to be a conductive surface on a balloon raised high enough to be radiating in "rarefied air.
Popularly explained it is exactly this: When we raise the voice and hear an echo in reply, we know that the sound of the voice must have reached a distant wall, or boundary, and must have been reflected from the same. Instead of sending sound vibrations toward a distant wall, I have sent electrical vibrations toward the remote boundaries of the earth, and instead of the wall, the earth has replied. In place of an echo, I have obtained a stationary electrical wave, a wave reflected from afar.
They have superior properties of transmission which normal radio and television waves today do not possess. Nikola Tesla was very familiar with their benefits.
Tesla states, "As to the transmission of power through space, that is a project which I considered absolutely certain of success long since. Years ago I was in the position to transmit wireless power to any distance without limit other than that imposed by the physical dimensions of the globe. In my system it makes no difference what the distance is. The efficiency of the transmission can be as high as 96 or 97 per cent, and there are practically no losses except such as are inevitable in the running of the machinery.
When there is no receiver there is no energy consumption anywhere. When the receiver is put on, it draws power. That is the exact opposite of the Hertz-wave system. In that case, if you have a plant of 1, horsepower kW , it is radiating all the time whether the energy is received or not; but in my system no power is lost. When there are no receivers, the plant consumes only a few horsepower necessary to maintain the vibration; it runs idle, as the Edison plant when the lamps and motors are shut off.
The case is not so simple in an unloaded power system, an RF transformer with a tuned secondary, or with a cavity resonator. In these situations, the fields are in phase quadrature, the circulating power is reactive and the average Poynting flux is zero - unless a load is applied.
They deliver no power without a resistive load. These are clearly the power systems which Tesla created. The polyphase power distribution system was created by him in the s and inaugurated at Niagara Falls in The RF transformer was invented and patented by him in the s. Terrestrial resonances he experimentally discovered at the turn of the century. And, for the next 40 years he tried to bring through to commercial reality this global power system. Today, millions of us have working scale models of it in our kitchens, while the larger version sits idle.
Calculating the circulating reactive power, they find a density of a microVAR per cubic meter at 7. Thunderstorms do it all of the time around the world. He drafted the entire scheme for the Wardenclyffe project and presented it to H. Curtis, physicist, and J. In a carefully worded page document, complete with schematic drawings of the earth imbued with Tesla standing waves, Flowers unveiled a plan for operating cars and planes powered by wireless electricity Sketch A. The plan was declined even though the mechanical test in Sketch B actually worked.
The oscillator arm was operated with an electrical motor at RPM by means of an eccentric on the motor shaft. The balloon hung free in the air. The waves were propagated in the rubber surface at the rate of 51 feet per second, the frequency of transmission was 29 cycles per second and the wavelength was 21 inches. When the finger was pushed against one or more loops, all the loops were reduced in amplitude in the same proportion showing the ability to obtain all the power out at one or more points!
Today, a couple of decades later, we have shamefully doubled our dependence on foreign oil and also doubled our electrical transmission grid inefficiency. Tesla discovered the evidence for charge clusters as patented by Ken Shoulders and Hal Puthoff , the overunity effects of air arcs as experimentally verified by Dr.
Peter Graneau and George Hathaway , and the overunity effects of plasma glow discharge as experimentally verified and patented by Dr. Paulo Correa. This is a short list. He was sure he could increase the output, lower the cost, and decrease the maintenance. He set to work harder than ever, driving himself beyond his endurance, and as a result came up with the design of twenty-four different types of standard machines, short cores, and uniform patterns which were to replace the old ones.
The Manager had promised me fifty thousand dollars on the completion of this task but it turned out to be a practical joke. This gave me a painful shock and I resigned my position.
General Electric also lost the generator contract for the three initial 5, horsepower generators at Niagara Falls in and was forced to secure a license for the use of Tesla patents.
Tesla Westinghouse completed the powerhouse in and residents of Niagara Falls turned on the lights in April, , proving the superiority of AC electricity. A year later and 20 miles away, Buffalo, NY would be the first city in the world to have electric street lamps. Meanwhile, GE lawyers could only repeatedly file petty lawsuits to wear down Westinghouse, so that eventually, it was called, "The War of the Currents. He has got a new thing and it will require a great deal of experimenting to get it working practically.
It will never be free from danger. Westinghouse was advised to get rid of the royalty contract when his form was in financial trouble and the fate of his company was at stake.
