TWM presents self-looping system with copious extra power for use
Allegedly, not only does TWM Technology, LLC's motor produces enough electricity to keep its batteries topped off, with energy left over for other use,
but it also produces torque. The motor does not heat up at all under load, so it
can be built from cheaper materials, including wood. A 600 HP version is nearly

|TWM's new 15 x 30-inch motor
prototype is expected to produce 600 HP and 5,000 VAC -- enough to
power a truck.
Henry Johnson, with TWM Technology, LLC, contacted me yesterday with some
updates on their motor technology.
The last I heard in January, TWM had a super efficient motor that was maybe
approaching overunity (more out than in).
The update information Henry provided spoke of a motor that produced enough
energy to loop back and keep itself running, while providing plenty of extra
energy for external use -- enough to enable an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to
run indefinitely, for example. That claim is in the opening statement in a
PDF document he had me upload to our site to add to our PESWiki
feature about their company. They like our page enough that for now
they have been referring people to it instead of building a site of their own.
Henry also wanted me to note that their patent filing is now
"pending," expected to be awarded in about a month. He also
emphasized that the engineer who reviewed the technology last January, Chris
Philbrick, is an "independent" agent, not affiliated with TWM; so the
technology has technically been "third party tested".
In a follow-up email, Henry stated (slightly edited):
"We have built a 15 x 30 [inch] motor. It looks like we may need as much as 200 VDC
input. However the output we expect to be 600 HP and 5,000 VAC. That will keep the batteries full, plus do significant other useful work. The next few
days will give us some significant answers."
I then followed up by doing a recorded phone interview with him this
morning. You can download
the 16-Mb mp3 file from that interview, which lasted 45 minutes, and is one of
the most jaw-dropping interviews I've ever done. If these guys truly have
what Henry is describing, it could be the holy grail of energy, providing a
bright beacon of hope for mankind, helping pull us through these troubled times.
According to Henry, the motor-generator has some amazing
- Not only does it produce enough electricity to keep its batteries topped off, with energy left over for other use,
but it also produces torque.
- The permanent magnets in the motor increase in strength with
- When an increased electrical load is placed on the output coils, they
increase their output to meet the load.
- He also said that the motor does not heat up at all under
load, so it can be built from cheaper materials, including wood.
intentionally shot the motor with a bullet, wiping out half of the motor
(several coils), and it still
It turns out that the moped that the engineer ran for 8 miles in a gymnasium
last January, ended up with the same charge in the batteries as it started out
with. The statement released by the engineer attests to that. The combined weight of the moped and rider was about 350 pounds.
Henry said that the other guys at TWM prefer to downplay what they have, both
out of a desire to be conservative, as well as being concerned about how
unbelievable their claims will be to most people.
They're putting the finishing touches on a version they expect to produce
between 600 and 1200 HP. They plan to attach one of these to a 1951 Ford
1-ton pick-up truck and drive it several thousand miles to demonstrate the
technology in use.
If real, this technology, scaled to various sizes, could fulfill the
"imagine" statement we have before each of our radio
"Imagine a world in which each home has its own power generator that
obtains its energy in such a way that no fuel has to be added. Imagine every
vehicle being able to run without ever stopping for fuel. Imagine each
appliance having its own power source that never has to be recharged."
How it Works
According to their pdf,
the generator-motor (producing electricity and torque) has 5 electromagnets in
each stator power the two permanent magnets in each of three rotors. As
the permanent magnet comes face to face with the electromagnets, the
electromagnet polarity is reversed, compressing the magnetic field, impelling
the magnet away. The opposite permanent maget is being repelled by the
last electromagnet and attracted by the next electromagnet, causing
rotation. A secondary winding on the electromagnet generates AC
power. They are using both sides of the magnetic field. All the
input energy is being used for is to change the polarity on the
electromagnets. The permanent magnets and flywheel effect do the
work. The transformers are 97% separated from the operation of the motor.
The synopsis statement we've had on our feature page is: "We've figured out
how to make magnets the fuel." -- Todd Thorpe, TWM President (Jan. 5, 2009)
This evening, Todd sent me the following (slightly edited excerpt):
I am editing a small video of three different prototypes. The first one is
hollow-core/electromagnets, high-rpm design. The second is a proof-of-concept/moped
test motor. And, of course, there is the large beta prototype.
Since the last time we spoke, I've learned a lot about our technology, but
still much is to be learned. For example, electromagnets can be almost any
material. We've proved this with hollow core design. That motor is activated
off of 10 pieces of wood! Phenolic to be exact. All our models' cores not only
drive the motor, but the same 10 coils are also pickup coils. So, in turn, we
are recycling the DC input through dissipation and absorption. The secondary
wires absorb and output pure AC power. That's just one example of why this
motor is special. This motor is versatile in the fact that it can be wired
multiple different ways and many different materials can be used, all
achieving different results. The motor is more equitable to an internal
combustion or turbine in the fact we compress and release the magnetic fields
in a stroke similar to a combustion motor or turbine. The motor is in fact a
contained linear accelerator. Our circuitry is ahead of its time. I'll explain
I hope this helps clarify our updates and perhaps will help the engineers out
there with doubts of our findings.

LLC shows two of their motor-generators in operation, though not necessarily
showing convincing overunity. The company claims that the system can provide
enough power from its secondary coil to both keep the battery source
replenished and to provide extra energy for practical use. (PESN;
