Gravity Powered Generator transforms power of gravity into electric current


What the difference between this invention and existing power suppliers?
Wind and Solar generators dependant on weather, they will never become reliable. Hydro Energy contrary is extremely reliable but reached its limit – we can not build more dams. Nuclear Energy - first thing comes to mind - Time Bomb.

Au contraire, Gravity Powered Generator does not produce any harmful emission; it can be installed in your basement, no need for ugly transmission lines. It works on Earth will work on Mars; gravitational field on the moon probably is not strong enough.
Do we have a prototype?
Yes we do. Located on premises in Montréal, Canada. Due to lack of resources the prototype is not impressive enough for potential manufacturers, nevertheless it proves - the concept works …
Can you buy this generator for your home?
Since Canadian government refused to patent this invention further development stopped - it will take some more nuclear disasters like Chornobyl's or Fukushima's before you will install it in your basement to power and heat your home.
Can it be used on road vehicles?
Yes, after a slight modification the invention will replace internal combustion engines. It will not cause CO2 (carbon dioxide aka greenhouse gas) emission or any environmental hazards. Unlike electric vehicles it will not require lengthy recharging or battery disposal.
Concept Description

Picture visualises the prototype work cycle. Weight of the balance (blue circle) is equal to the weight of both counterbalances (red circles). Also length of brown and blue lines representing levers are equal. Black points in the middle of the circles show their centers of mass. Black points separating brown and blue lines stand for fulcrums (pivoting points).

When blue circle in its extreme upper or low position counter balances also on their extremities but on the opposite side. At this moment entire system is in equilibrium and can freely rotate around horizontal axis.

Now let’s assume that friction is negligible and the blue circle at the bottom. Some "mysterious" force kicked it upwards, as shown on the picture - leverage ratio is not equal anymore. Red circles are lifting the blue one until the system regains its equilibrium but this time blue circle got to the top.

Because of regained equilibrium it does not take much work to flip the system, as well, we do not need induced current to do it. Let the blue circle (aka balance aka moving part of linear generator) gain some momentum and pass over equilibrium point - the system flips on its own. How to do it with minimal losses not in the scope of this page.

Replacing the balance (middle piece) with a Linear Generator allows gravity-into-electricity conversion ...

Multiple tests run on the prototype have shown that machine does not work if at the positions of equilibrium angle between lever and horizontal (rotation) axis surpasses 30°. The heavier is the machine - the more power it produces, its efficiency varies between 17.3 % and 7.9 % (at 30° and 20° respectively). Efficiency was calculated using Newton-Leibniz formula. Theoretically the highest net efficiency can be reached at 45°
