Phemax announces inertial propulsion generation wheel
Phemax Technologies, Inc. announced Wednesday that they have a new
sustainable transportation system based on their inertial propulsion generation
wheel, which involves what they call '3D Coraxial Hybrid Induction' (CHI), in
which 'Coraxial' refers to combined radial-axial pick-up.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN I have been in contact with Taiwan inventor, Tajen (David) Chi,
in the past week. We're using Google and Yahoo translation services, which
though very helpful are far from perfect and leave some obscurity, so some of
this information may need to be taken with a grain of salt.
David said that his company, Phemax Technologies Inc., a small FREE energy
company, announced Wednesday that they have a new sustainable transportation system based on their inertial propulsion
generation wheel. David said they plan a public demonstration of the
technology in September at an expo, after which they will allow interested and qualified
parties to come to their lab for licensing.
If I understand their claim, their device allegedly can provide power without
consuming fuel or creating pollution. It could take the place of the
battery component of an electric vehicle, with the added advantage of not
requiring plug-in or charge-up -- just continuous clean power, when it is
needed. The the polluting and maintenance aspects of batteries would be
eliminated, as would be the need for power plants that are usually required to
recharge electric vehicles.
At the September exhibition, they will allow visitors to ride the actual 2 kW
test car. David will load the test data on the Internet.
David told me that with rotational input of 1 NM (Newton meters) turning at 500
rpm, the inertial propulsion generation wheel can produce 1 KW of axial generative power.
Doing the math on that to convert
the input into Watts for comparison, I calculate (I'm not an expert) 2π x 1
NM x 500 rpm / 60 (sec/min) = 52 Watts. So an input of 52 Watts
produces an output of 1000 Watts. Not bad, if they truly have
accomplished this. That's more than an ample margin to keep the input
going, with energy left over for consumption.
However, I must have misunderstood, because David also said that a 150W motive
force provides 180W-200W output; and a 1500W motive force provides an output of
1800W-2000W (96V x 20A), as measured by a watt meter, speed meter, torque meter,
and oscilloscopes. He said independent measurements were made by Michael
If I understood David correctly, ceramic- based and carbon- based ultracapacitors
are used to transfer some of the output power into the input to keep the machine
running continuously. Start-up torque is provided by a continuously
variable transmission (CVT). They have a 150-Watt and a 2 kW prototype
they plan to demonstrate in September. He said they typically run these
for eight hours a day in their lab.
In a traditional electric car battery, chemical energy is converted into mechanical energy to drive the
vehicle. Then, in regenerative braking mode, through the power of inertia,
some electricity is generated and stored back in the battery. The energy
required to overcome friction of movement is supplied to the battery from the
grid through recharging or from a fuel-consuming engine.
The core principle in the Phemax process is what they call CORAXIA (combined radial
-axial) hybrid induction, or simply abbreviated "CHI", which is
David's last name. They also call this the "3D Coaxial Hybrid
Induction". I've posted their brochure here
in which this is described.
If I understand correctly, they claim that the electromagnetic 3d arrangement
enables the wheel to have both radial flux propulsion and axial flux generation of the same rotor
and different direction stator. As the radial electric drive rotates, the mechanical energy due to the inertia of the wheel and the ground power transmission
mechanism enables the wheels to generate electricity as they rotate.
Here's a couple of videos David sent me recently:
David says he is self taught in the areas of electromagnetic 3d (motor generator)
and thermal-3d (thermal combustion engine).
Here is how he described how he got involved in this technology:
In 2007, my son, with 4th grade elementary school children, pointed to a bus and
told me: "Father, that is the world's largest electricity generator."
I asked him why. My son replied that with the bus, the wheel is the rotor, the car frame is
stator. He said some teachers in the school taught the principle of the motor and
generator; so he believes the bus will be able to produce very high power.
That was our source of inspiration for the concept of inertial power.
We've used a bicycle, motorcycle and other experiments to determine the free energy capture principle of inertia is
correct. The traditional renewable power brake recovery is less than 30%
We are testing the concept in Taiwan. After obtaining Taiwan patent M352472, we started on the motorcycle and my wife's car to do
experiments. We did plug-in type and wheel proof of concept within the power generation
operations, from which were derived patents M372891 (outer plug-in type) and M382655.
From his search of the patent index, the Internet and YouTube, David said he has
not yet seen a similar patent or experimental set-up to what they have.
He said they have spend around NT 2 million yuan (about 60,000 U.S. dollars) so
far on parts for the proof of concept models and two completed prototypes.
