believe it or not.
The power lines those big boxes every so often are transformers that boost the power running along the power lines so they can run power lines over
quiet a distance.
That's what he reminded me of at first as well.
Transformers either step up voltage, or step it down, depending on needs. However it comes at a cost, Current (Amperage).
Calling it "boosting" might be misleading for members who don't understand electrical theory. It's merely converted.
Increasing Voltage means you will have less available Current to draw from.
Like gear ratios. (Analogy) The lower the gear the higher the torque... but it comes at a cost... your maximum RPM is dropped down to compensate.
Basically, we use transformers on the power grid because high voltage - low amperage can traverse long distances better. At the receiving end, just
before distribution, it's converted back to a lower voltage, higher amperage.
However, in his video he claims both Voltage AND Current are increased. (Along with frequency).
So the idea that he's simply mistaken a step-up transformer for over-unity is out.
But from his very brief description of it, he definitely sounded like he just described a transformer wound around a magnetized core (which eventually
happens naturally with iron core transformers).
We're definitely going to have to wait till he releases a full explanation.
For now, my theory is that he's broken up the AC waveform into high amplitude short wavelength spikes. Same energy, different waveform.
In which case you would have to compensate for it in your calculations... and would be theoretically possible to mistake for an increase in energy.
It would increase the peak to peak voltage and frequency... but in practicality it would come at a cost of current. But I can imagine a novice to
calculating energy might miscalculate it and think he's getting more current out... but then again... a simple Ammeter could tell you otherwise.
For a more generalized understanding of this, look up rapid pulsed DC. It's a trick often used to make LED's and Wireless signals seem to be
stronger without using more energy.
Works wonders for IR transmission.
