The Wardforce Pathway to Free Energy
Steve Ward has demonstrated a magnetic force he calls the "Wardforce." This force could be considered the opposite of Lenz Law's back-EMF concept, because it can support the motion of an electric motor instead of resist it. Could this be a pathway to overunity?by Hank Mills

Energy Producing Magnetic Converter, US patent #
The concept of Lenz Law explains that when a magnet passes by a conductor (such as a pickup coil), the electrical current induced in that conductor produces a magnetic field of it's own. This magnetic field is often called Back EMF or Counter EMF, and works against the magnetic field that induced the current that created it. Back EMF is usually considered to be the enemy of free energy. Due to back EMF working against the field that created it, almost all electric motors (except a few in the world of exotic energy) are limited to under 100% efficiency.
Steve Ward has demonstrated a concept that appears to not only nullify back EMF, but also produce an additional forward EMF. In the simplest form, the setup is composed of one or more permanent magnets mounted to the end of a shaft that is connected to an electric motor. Instead of having the poles of these magnets facing a pick up coil (perpendicular to it), the poles of the magnets are parallel to the pick up coil. One important aspect to mention is that the part of the magnetic field that is not in proximity to the poles of the magnets is being used.
When Ward's electric motor is turned on, the magnets begin to spin. Depending upon the speed of the permanent magnets, three things can happen when the pick up coil is shorted so it can power a load. At one speed a back EMF force will be created that slows the motion of the spinning magnets, and the motor will start to draw more power. At a faster speed, the motion of the spinning magnets will remain the same, and the power draw of the electric motor will remain the same (regardless of the fact a load is being powered). Somehow, back EMF has been negated. At an even faster speed, when a load is applied to the pickup coil, the motion of the magnets will increase, and the power draw of the motor will decrease. Amazingly, a "forward EMF" seems to have been created. This forward EMF is what Steve Ward calls, the "Wardforce."
Steve Ward has multiple videos of this phenomenon on his website
and blog. The videos clearly show the force in action. The power draw of motors are reduced while the speed of the magnets increase. In fact, while all this is happening loads are being powered.
The clear question here is if this is a pathway to overunity. It seems like extra energy is being produced (or harnessed from the environment).
He says he mostly uses parts from junkyards. It is possible that even if extra energy is being produced, a great deal of the energy could be lost due to ordinary loss mechanisms and inefficient motors. I mentioned the idea of testing this concept on an already very efficient motor, and determining if overunity is being produced. However, he stressed that he does not have the money for such equipment, and has to make due with junkyard parts.
He openly requests help with his research, because he does not have the money or resources to perform the kind of research he would like to do. Basically, he wants to get other people involved so this technology can be developed, and used for the benefit of mankind.
Ward has configurations more advanced than the one I described above. In some of them, he states the magnetic field is not moved, but is turned on and off. He has published links to patents he has received and filed that describe these advanced configurations.
The first patent, US #5191258
is titled, "Electric Current Generator Including Torque Reducing CEMF", the second,
US #7531930 is titled, "Energy Producing Magnetic Converter", and the final one,
US Patent Pending #61478379,
is titled "Permanent Magnet On/Off Induction Switch.
His most basic configuration seems extremely simple. Are there any readers willing to contact Steve Ward and build a replication? If this force is as simple to produce as it seems, this could be a pretty strait forward OU technology.
The Wardforce effect has been discussed on various internet forums, including a thread
on the Energetic Forum. There is some skepticism on certain internet forums about the effect, but some posters have compared it to other claimed OU systems without dismissing it as being unworthy of further study. Some folks on the Energetic Forum claim that they have seen a similar effect in other systems, but did not explain it well.
It has also been mentioned that Ward's web page and blog could be clearer when describing the configurations he uses, and the effect in general. In my opinion, this is a fair assessment. Most of the the videos on his site are very short, and the descriptions of the technology can be a bit confusing. This is especially true for his more advanced configurations, which I do not fully understand. A step by step video in which he assembles his various configurations from basic components, or at least identifies each part and it's function, would be very helpful.
