Looking at that circuit, I couldn't see how it would be producing overunity energy. So... I did some research on the internet, and whipped out one of my textbooks, and here are some comments...
The efficiency of the circuit and motor is not the same as the COP. The efficiency is less than 100% while the COP is greater than 1. The energy transfered for work by the primary battery has an efficiency of less than 100% as there are losses mentioned.
COP can be greater than 1, but that doesn't mean that free energy is being created/generated. According to that website, which I realize isn't Bedini's, but is based on his work, the efficiency is less than 100%, which means that there is no free/radiant energy being produced.
When you are charging the battery, it is, by your numbers, charging slower than it discharges. Now, you do not have any way of knowing, based on the data given (that I can see, anyway) of when the charging battery is actually fully charged. You don't have any data about how many joules of energy are actually contained in each battery. What I think is happening is that the succession of experiments has simply moved energy from the primary battery into the charging battery without creating/generating/gathering 'radiant energy'.
Now, everything I have said here does not prove or disprove radiant energy. It strongly hints (in my mind, anyway) that there is no 'radiant' energy coming from somewhere, but it doesn't prove it either way, for the very reason that we don't know the total amount of energy in the batteries. What it does say is that there are more things to measure/calculate before we can say for sure whether free energy is being produced or not.
If it was simply a matter of the battery holding a little extra charge, or the voltage not giving a fully accurate level in and out, then after 3 or 4 cycles of taking out 30% more than we are putting in, the battery would be flat dead, no?
The rotating wheel has magnets on it.
The wheel is place over the top of the transformer.
The interactions of the moving magnets with the coil causes voltage spikes in the circuit which causes the charging.
