Captret and Tesla switch

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

It is a complex component to say the least. It is as if it is composed of 3 caps being 2 virtual plus the known cap itself. On my first graph I am showing the log of the progess of the running and sucessfull version shown on my youtube videos. Voltage is still going up andLED is a little bit more bright now. I also noticed that battery B1 is drainning more than charging although I dont have its initial starting voltage.

I would vconclude on very little data on B1 that it is going down with time. Battery B2 on the contrary is indeed charging with time which explains the LED getting brighter too. I think that if B1 continues going down I can swap the two batteries and let the process continue. Time will tell. So far I call this version of the captret a total sucess. On the second picture (Flip/Flop on virtual caps) I noticed that the captret works as if it has two extra virtual caps between the two poles (points A and B). I named them VC1 (points A and C) and VC2 (points C and B). Starting with an empty cap when closing switch S1 battery B1 will charge cap C1. At the same time the voltage on the points A and C (virtual cap VC1) will also have a certain voltage of about 3/4 of C1 (A positive and C negative). Virtual cap VC2 will be also about 1/4 of C1 voltage (C positive and B negative). Upon opening S3 and closing S5, LED D2 will blink and VC2 will go to zero while VC1 will be the same voltage of C1 (after losses on C1 voltage). So C1 will be a little bit less than when we started and VC1 will be that same voltage of C1. That`s why I called this diagram FLIP-FLOP, since one can switch S3 and S5 alternatively and have about 90% or more of the virtual caps VC1 and VC2 simply transfering to themselfs their charge with little loss while doing work. One can also, during this FLIP-FLOP process, use that energy transfer and light LEDs as I am...
