Zero Amp Tech demonstration video

Video footage from a demonstration by Peter Sumaruck of his "Zero Amp" technology which allegedly puts out far more energy than it consumes.  The video also shows Pete flipping through his photo album of the self-looped 36 kW set-up he allegedly built for the Army.

On Nov. 24, 2008, I flew out to San Francisco to check out a technology developed by Peter Sumaruck of Concord.

He has been demonstrating his "Zero Amp Tech" set-up in his garage, in which a generator powers a modified variable AC motor controller with (allegedly) a small fraction of a Watt input; while the controller runs five AC motors: three rated at 2 horsepower, and two rated at 7.5 HP. As the motors come up to speed and then run free-wheeling, they allegedly consume far more energy than what is being input from the generator.

When I viewed the demonstration, I was initially highly enthusiastic.  But then, when I ran the information by the New Energy Congress, several points were raised that dampened that enthusiasm.  I published a report of those points a couple of days ago here at PESN.

While in Pete's garage, I shot a video of the demonstration, as well as of Pete flipping through his photo album of the alleged self-running generator he built for the U.S. Army at Fort Hood, Texas before the project was reportedly shut down by two Texas politicians with nuclear energy industry ties.

We (PES Network, Inc.) have now posted that video to YouTube.  It is embedded above.

Pete claims that the Fort Hood prototype self-ran and put out 36 kilowatts net, able to handle loads from to 0 to 36 kW, coming and going, without changing speed or sound. He claims that he plugged ninety 300-Watt bulbs in to it, and that it was so bright the people viewing the demo were temporarily blinded. He said this system was in resonance so that a stethoscope placed on any component in the system sounded the same. He claimed that the system could last for thirty years -- the life of a mortgage -- with the only maintenance being to change the three belts.

In his garage demonstration, the misplacement of the input current measurement, the unknown waveform of the output and the unknown phase relationships of voltage and current prohibit any meaningful power calculations. What needs to happen for the present set-up to be measured definitively is to run a test in which the input and the output are more accurately measured, using an oscilloscope, with a measurable load on the output side.

Pete's demonstration in the back of his pick-up truck.  The 6.5-HP genset is in the upper-left.  To the right of it are two 7.5-HP motors.  In front of them are three 2-HP motors and the junction where the motors are hooked up and connected to the controller, which is on the middle of the tailgate.

His not-yet-verified assertion about having built a self-running system that two conflicted politicians squashed is certainly an enticing story. The question is if enough evidence can be produced from a less expensive set-up, to convince someone to put up enough funds to enable him to reproduce the essence of what he claims to have built for the Army.

    Zero Amp Tech demonstration reflections - Peter Sumaruck has captured the imagination of many with his demonstration alleging 0.05 Watts input from a genset powering five motors (4000 Watts) output through his modified modified variable AC motor controller. However, a New Energy Congress assessment gives reason for skepticism. (PESN; Nov. 30, 2008)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
