Electricity from the ground with their own hands
The need to constantly burn fuel for electricity leads to the search for ways to make the process cheaper, and sometimes to create theories about the possibility of free electricity. Such ideas are not new, as they were put forward by the famous minds of the past, standing at the dawn of the mass use of electrical appliances.
Therefore, modern generators of free energy no longer surprise anyone, free electricity offer to receive the most incredible ways. Today we will look at such a way as electricity from the ground, how real it is and what theories exist in general.
Myths and reality
Modern science has been able to prove the existence of its own electromagnetic field around the planet. It not only creates natural oscillations in the Earth’s atmosphere, but is also designed to protect all mankind from the effects of solar radiation, dust and other small particles that could come from space. From a theoretical point of view, if you place one electrode on the surface of the ground and raise the other 500 m upwards, you get a potential difference of about 80 V between them. If the distance is proportionally increased to 1000 m, the voltage level should also increase by a factor of two.
However, in practice it is not so smooth:
- Firstly, the electrodes should have a sufficiently large area, due to which they will have sailing and there will be difficulties with their mass and fixation at height.
- Second, the electromagnetic state of the earth’s field is not constant, so it depends a lot on various factors and its distribution in space is also uneven.
- Thirdly, the upper electrode will be the main pretender to the attraction of discharges of atmospheric electricity, which will lead to overvoltage in the generator.
Nevertheless, certain experiments to obtain free electricity still exist, but their practical implementation is more experimental than substantive.
What can you try to do?
But you should be careful, because some of the proposed options are created solely as commercial advertising and are not useful even from a theoretical point of view. Such methods are designed to sell non-working devices to gullible seekers of free voltage.
However, there are experiments that make it possible to extract electricity, albeit at relatively low voltages. Among the existing ways to get electricity from the ground, we’ll look at a few really workable options.
The Belousov Scheme
The name of the method comes from the last name of the scientist who proposed this method of obtaining electricity from the ground. It uses a double passive ground without any activators, two capacitors and an inductor coil. Belousov’s circuit is shown in the figure below:
Figure 1. Belousov’s scheme for obtaining electricity
The extraction of electricity from the ground, according to this scheme, will take place according to this principle:
- High-frequency discharges present in the ground will constantly pass through the circuit of the two grounds. But they will be cut off by the inductive component of the first coil of the scheme Tr.1.
- Capacitors in the scheme are connected by positive plates to each other, it is important to observe this sequence, otherwise the accumulation of electricity as in a single capacitance will not happen.
- To the second coil is connected a light bulb, which, if there is electricity, will show that you have managed to extract the current. This is a kind of load, which you can replace with any device.
From the ground and neutral wire
This method of getting electricity from the ground is based on the fact that the neutral conductor in systems with a deaf-earthed neutral at a private consumer has a significant distance from the circuit of the substation or the CHP. Initially check whether there is a potential difference between the neutral conductor and the ground loop. As a rule, a voltmeter will show a potential difference of 10 – 20V. This is not a large potential difference, but it can also be used. You can easily raise it to the right value with a simple transformer.
Fig. 2. Between ground and zero
To get electricity you will need to get your own ground loop, if you do not already have one on your property. For more information on the manufacturing process, you can read the corresponding article on the website – https://www.asutpp.ru/zazemlyayuschee-ustroystvo.html. Note, despite the use of the central power supply system, the meters will not take into account this voltage, so it can be considered free.
Rods of zinc and copper (galvanic method)
Fig.3. Rods of zinc and copper
This method of obtaining electricity from the earth uses the same method as the conventional battery. The source of electricity here is the chemical reaction that occurs when metal electrodes interact with a natural electrolyte. However, the power of this natural electricity generator and the potential difference will depend on a number of factors:
- Dimensions – length, cross-section and area of interaction with the ground. The larger the area, the more electricity can be produced by this method.
- Depth of location – the deeper the electrodes are placed, the more electricity will be collected throughout the height of the metal.
- Soil composition – the chemical composition of any electrolyte will determine the conductivity of the electric current, the ability to generate an electric charge, etc. Therefore, the presence of certain salts, concentrations of certain elements and will be the main difference for the natural electrolyte on the surface of the planet.
For practical realization of this method of receiving free energy take a pair of electrodes from different metals, making a galvanic pair. The most popular choices are copper and zinc. Immerse the copper wire in the ground, and then step 25 – 30 cm away from it and immerse the zinc electrode in the ground. For the best effect, fill the ground between them with a strong solution of ordinary food salt.
To assess the result of the experiment, wait 10 to 15 minutes and then connect a voltmeter to the leads of the earth battery. As a rule, you will get a voltage of 1 to 3V, depending on the depth of the electrodes and the type of soil the indicators may differ. This, of course, is not much, but to power a LED or other low-current device will be quite enough. Over time, the salt solution will be absorbed and its effect will begin to weaken, so the resource of electricity at the output will also decrease.
If you are doing these manipulations for the permanent use of the galvanic cell that powers any electrical installation, then it will be rational to try to hammer the electrodes in different places on the land plot. And then choose the most profitable option. If the voltage from a pair of pins will be too low, then you need to hammer a few and connect them in series. But remember, the constant pouring of dissolved salt will make the soil unsuitable for growing agricultural and ornamental crops.
Potential between the roof and the ground
This method of getting electricity from the ground is possible for houses with a metal roof. You will need to connect one electrode to a metal plate, which is a single structure or antenna. And the second lead to the grounding wire, which connects to a common circuit, in its absence, you can simply hammer a pin into the ground. The roof of the building must be insulated from the ground.
Figure 4. Potential between the roof and the ground
The larger the area occupied by the metal antenna and the higher it is located, the higher voltage you will get. It is usually possible to generate 1 to 2 volts of electricity in the private sector, so the method is experimental rather than practical. Since it would be impractical to raise up or expand the roof area for the sake of a few volts of electricity.
From the methods discussed above, we can see that there are both enormous reserves of static electricity in the earth and great potential for other types of energy, which can be put at the service of man. There is no need to burn fuel for this, but not one of the methods makes it impossible to power a powerful device.
Therefore, it is much more profitable to use the same solar panels or wind turbines as alternative sources of electricity. Further study of methods of generating electricity from the ground may bring more productive results, but today we can be content with just energy for the sake of experimentation.
