Static electricity/Creating high voltages
A static lifter can not be built without a 30,000 volt power supply. In addition, existing high voltage creation devices need to be maintained and certifications (online tests) built in order to use them.
There are some of the mechanisms for generating high voltages:
- Rubbing things together
- lots of 9v batteries video
- TV flyback transformer
- Van de graaff
- Wimshurst machine
- Cockcroft-Walton generators
- Tesla Coil (AC like a power line .. not static)
The static lifter demo requires the highest voltage. The goal is to generate 30KV to do a static lifter demo. All methods for generating the high voltage should be attempted.
- video from tv/monitor
- video making high voltage supply
- repairing high voltage supply
- make 120KV CW Tower
- 101 Cockcroft voltage multiplier
Have an old high voltage probe that needs to be fixed and it's operation documented. Video of violet ray machine.
Looks similar to the Violet Ray Machine from the 1920's. Need to visit the Montgomery County Historical Society to see if they know anything about it. Versions of it have shown up at some new age healing expositions or fairs.
|Attempt to fix old high voltage probe|
It is called a "Tesla Coil", but not sure that is what this is. For now call it an "old high voltage probe."
|Operation of old high voltage probe|
- Develop and reference safety precautions
- Make Van De Graph generator
- Get Wimhurst machines working
- Fix high voltage probe
- Build 30KV supply
