It's not a time machine, it is a wormhole generator.
You had me at 75 tons of
Uranium.
One square mile of earth, one foot deep, typically contains over a ton of uranium. A ton of uranium can produce more than 40 million
kilowatt-hours of electricity, which is equal to burning 16,000 tons of coal or 80,000 barrels of oil.
So one ton of Uranium can produce 40 million kWhs of juice. This device needs 75 tons to run. Check my math, but that's 3 billion kWhs worth of
energy.
A bit of checking shows that the USA uses 138 billion kWhs per year in lighting alone.
To help with your research, let's assume that the device runs for 1 hour per day, creating a "stargate" each time it is fired up. (Hypothetically,
the reason there is no control in where you wind up is because there is no receiving "gate" established, yet. The output would be random.)
Here's a few helpful formulas:
watts=current x volts
current=watts / volts
volts=watts / current
0000 wire can easily hold 460 volts of current. Since we know it only runs for 1 hour, we can deduce that the wattage is 3 billion kWs. The math
says it needs 106,144.42 amps to run (current).
Mankind currently has nothing on the books that can shield a circuit from that much amperage. Basically, the wiring would melt when applying that
much electricity.
A scaled down model wouldn't produce enough current to open a wormhole. Sorry to rain on your parade. You gotta have a lot of current to do what
you want to do, but you don't have the infrastructure to do it. If it was possible, it would've been done already.
75 tons of Uranium would work to open a wormhole/stargate, but there's nothing currently available to use to supply the machine with energy, save
plasma, and that needs contained within a magnetic field. The wires you depict would instantly melt due to the current going through them.
