Kosinov, V.I. Garbaruk, UkraineE-mail: (L) of 2~5 MOhm to the transmission linedoes not cause any considerable changes inoperation of the circuit [1]. In the article [2] theauthors assume that the efficiency of the devicedepends on the material which is used for thewindings of a generator (M). Therefore theybelieve it is necessary to check expediency ofusing nickel, iron, lead, etc. wires to make thewindings. At the same time, one of the authors ofthe article [2] considers their line to besuperconducting [3, 4].Our Experiments on Single-WireElectric Power TransmissionThe authors of this article carried out a numberof experiments on power transmission usingsingle-wire lines. To that end we developed a newsingle-wire power transmission circuit. In ourcircuit there was no Avramenko plug. Insteadof an Avramenko plug we used an ordinarybridge circuit. In our experiments the bridgecircuit turned out to be much more efficient thanAvramenko plug. Moreover, we made someother changes into Abramenkos circuit. Ourcircuit is presented in Fig.2. The transmitting unitconsists of a generator and a transformer. Thecircuit diagram of the transmitting unit is shownin Fig.2 (to the right of the transformer).Single-Wire ElectricPower TransmissionThe idea of single-wire electric power transmissionhas become especially attractive to manyresearchers after a demonstration of single-wire ACtransmission made by S.V. Avramenko [1] at theMoscow Scientific-Research Institute of ElectricalEngineering. Editors: We have already writtenabout similar investigations in our previous issues.The story began more than 100 years ago withTeslas experiments.Fig. 1Single-wire power transmission circuit by Avramenko[1]At the heart of the device there is Avramenko plugrepresenting two sequence semiconductor diodes(Fig.1). If the plug is connected to a wire under ACvoltage, then after a time in a discharger P there isobserved a run of sparks. The time gap fromconnection to discharging depends on the valuesof capacity (C), voltage, frequency of pulsation andthe size of the air gap (P). The connection of aFig. 2Single-wire power transmission by a new circuit

Figures in the circuit diagram (Fig.2) denote thefollowing: 1 Generator, 2 Extender of spectrum,3 Antenna. The general view of the device isshown in Fig.3.Fig. 3General view of the device to demonstratesingle-wire power transmissionElectric energy is supplied to the device from a DCpower source B5-47 providing voltage of 0-30 V.An incandescent lamp of 220 V, 25Wt serves asload. The generator and transformer are enclosedinto a dielectric casing. The components of a powerreceiver (diodes, capacitor, lamp, elements 2 and3) are placed in a plastic casing under the lamp(Fig.3). The power receiver is connected to thetransformer with one wire.The intensity of glow of the lamp depends on thegenerator power. The lamp of 220 V, 25Wt is almostfully incandesced when high output voltage of thepower supply is within the range of 16~18 V (Fig.4).Fig. 4Glow of the lamp at high voltage of power supply B5-47in the single-wire power transmission lineThe key points in increasing the efficiency of ourcircuit in comparison with Avramenkos circuit arethat we used an entire standard bridge circuit andnot just a half of it. Besides there was used aspectrum expander. The load does not impede fullcharging of the capacitor since the spectrumexpander was used in the circuit. Neitherconnection of a resistor to the transmission line norusing a conductor of high specific resistance as atransmission line can considerably affect the degreeof glow of the lamp. Our circuit of single-wirepower transmission has two independent lineswith different frequency spectra. The first line hasa narrow-band frequency spectrum and the secondline a wideband one. In the first line the circuitcloses at the free end of the secondary winding ofthe transformer through an antenna (3) (Fig.2). Thecapacitor, spectrum expander and incandescentlamp form the second line.Experiments with Burnt-OutIncandescent LampsBoth good and burnt-out lamps glow in the above-described experiments on single-wire powertransmission. Results of the experiments with theburnt-out lamps are presented below.There is a break of a filament of the incandescentlamp (Fig. 5). This photo was taken while the devicewas switched off.Fig. 5A burnt-out lamp of 220 V, 60 Wt before the experimentFig. 6 is a photo taken during the experiment.You can see a glowing filament and a brightspark in the break point of the filament. Neitherconnection of a resistor to the transmission linenor using a conductor of high specific resistanceas the transmission line could considerablyreduce the incandescence of the filament. Thedegree of i ncandescence of the fi l amentdepends substantially on the size of a gap in thebreak point of the filament. The experimentsrevealed that there was an optimal size of theburnt-out section when the incandescence of the residual filament was maximalFig. 6Glow of a burnt-out incandescent lamp of 220 V, 60 WtPractically each of us meets the glow of burnt-outlamps even without knowing it. For that it will beenough just to examine a burned-out lamp closely.Rather often you can notice that the internalcircuit of an incandescent lamp burns out in morethan one point. It is obvious that probability ofburnout of the filament of a lamp in several pointsat a time is negligible. It means that on losing theintegrity of the filament the lamp had beenglowing on before the circuit broke in one morepoint. This phenomenon occurs in most caseswhen incandescent lamps burn out in the circuitof 220V and 50Hz.For one of the experiments we connectedstandard incandescent lamps of 220V, 60Wt tothe secondary winding of a step-up transformer.At idle running voltage of the transformer wasabout 300V. In the experiment there were used20 incandescent lamps. It turned out that theincandescent lamps burn out mostly in two ormore points. Moreover, not only the filament, butalso the conductive wires inside of the lamp wereburnt out. In addition, after the first break incircuit the lamps went on glowing for a long timeand even more intensively than before theburnout. A lamp had been glowing on up to themoment when one more subcircuit burnt out. Theinternal circuit of one of the lamps in ourexperiment was broken in four points! Moreover,the filament burnt out in two points and, inaddition to the filament, the both electrodesinside the lamps were burnt out as well. Results ofthe experiment are presented in Table 1.Experiments on Wireless ElectricPower TransmissionMany scientists all over the world work at solution ofthe problem of wireless power transmission. Mostlythere are studied microwave fields used for thepurpose of wireless power transmission. However,the applied microwave systems are not harmless tothe man [5]. We present the information on ourexperiments on realization of wireless powertransmission without using the microwave field. Westudied probability to transmit power to an electricmotor without use of wires.The system, which consisted of a power supply B5-47,a generator and a transformer, was used in ourexperiments as a transmitter. A special receiving unitfor wireless power transmission served as a powerreceiver and contained an electronic unit and a DCelectric motor IDR-6. In Fig. 7 you can see the generalview of our wireless power transmission device.Fig. 7General view of the device for demonstration of wirelesspower transmissionTable 1Quantity oflamps usedin theexperiment20Quantity oflamps withone burned-out point8Quantity oflamps withtwo burned-out points8Quantity oflamps withthree burned-out points3Quantity oflamps withfour burned-out points1Quantity oflamps withfive burned-out points0
