Theory version 20231004
This report explores the theory and mechanical implications of using variations in electrical capacitance to collect mechanical
energy and render it available in electrical form. Fully developed, it may represent a feasible alternative to the common
dynamo or alternator, applicable to energy sources other than rotation (such as variations in pressure), and may be scalable to
any required capacity.
Theoretical validation version 20231004
This report considers the theory explored in the Energy Theory report in this series. It reports on experiments intended to
validate the theory and presents a means of harvesting the electrostatic energy efficiently for practical use.
Practical devices 20220423
This report considers the different mechanical configurations that may be considered in exploiting the theory presented in the
Energy Theory report in this series.
Innovation award entry June 2022
The concept model, constructed from 3-D printed plastic and conductive paint, was entered into a global competition.
