Dennis Danzik has designed a new type of machine that can run using zero emissions and simultaneously defy the laws of physics. His invention, called Earth Engines, utilizes magnets in conjunction with a flywheel to generate power.
In early 2019, Inductance Energy Corporation (IEC) announced the breakthrough advancement created by their Science and Technology Officer, Dennis Danzik, that has the potential to power the world.
Danzik’s journey to this revolutionary design has been filled with supporting roles in 15 countries around the globe and his combined 33 years in the field. IEC hired him to work on developing a diesel generator to be used in oil fields. Since then, his focus has shifted to his current project, which he claims can generate energy using magnets and a flywheel.
Overcoming The Odds
A flywheel is a mechanical device that is used frequently in a four-stroke engine. The flywheel acts as a crucial component that can store and deliver power from one stroke to another as needed. The device is similar to that of a wheel and is attached to an engine’s crankshaft. Typically produced using cast iron or even steel, flywheels can be found in different types of machinery such as presses, punching machines, or rolling mills.
This machine is what inspired Danzik to craft his version with the incorporation of magnets. Danzik’s design works by extracting the power from magnets and converting it into usable energy. The idea defies both Gauss’s law for magnetism – that magnets do not have any inherent energy – and the first law of thermodynamics, “the change in internal energy of a system is equal to the heat added to the system minus the work done by the system.”
When Danzik first shared his plans with others, such as the former president and CEO of AlliedSignal Aerospace, Mr. Hinz, Danzik’s first ally, received interest, hesitation, and even outright disagreement.
Reports from the Wall Street Journal states that a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Chicago, Don Lincoln, stated his hesitations on Danzik’s claims: “Perpetual-motion machines are bunk, and magnets are the refuge of charlatans.” Though, to Don’s defense, he did say that if Danzik’s vision could come to fruition, then he “will throw away the textbooks and send [Mr. Danzik] half a dozen Nobel Prizes,” because one simply wouldn’t be enough if he can pull this off.
Danzik commented in earnest, “I can and have demonstrated [the phenomenon] without fail, thousands of times.” He told the Wall Street Journal that since he already knows he can do what is promised, he focuses on working on the details and practical application.
How It Works
Magnets are comprised of rare-earth minerals and have the ability to create a magnetic field. Utilizing this knowledge to his advantage, Danzik’s design would take magnets and pair them with a flywheel and computer control to create energy. Magnets are currently believed to be unable to generate energy due to their opposite forces cancel each other out.
Danzik’s idea would utilize a certain type of magnet that is considered ‘one-sided’ due to their density that magnifies their effect. For example, 85% attractive force vs. 15% repulsive force. Referred to as “anisotropic”, this type of magnet is not unheard of. Tesla even has their version, which utilizes electromagnetic motors that are roughly 30% stronger than the more common neodymium. Danzik’s model would use the “anisotropic” magnet to counter-rotate the flywheel, allowing for their net force to be harvested for power.
Recently, Danzik has, with the help of IEC, manufactured prototypes of his physics-defying machines, called Earth Engines. His R32 Earth Engine can generate either 240V or 480V at 100amps thanks to the 900-kilogram flywheel moving at speeds of 125 and 250rpm. This energy output is similar to that of a small diesel generator, except Danzik's model can produce this power without any emissions, noise, or fuel use.
When tested in real-time at a facility in Las Vegas, the R32 ran for 422 hours with an average output of 4.4kW, enough energy to power three U.S. homes for up to a month. The process of creating energy isn’t the problem, Danzik states, but rather the act of storing it in batteries, which currently would cost more than the generator themselves.
Even with all of Earth Engine’s advancements and potential, Danzik still has his fair share of doubters from various individuals working in the field. That is inevitable, though, as some people will only be convinced when Danzik’s device is in full swing, whereas others might not ever be convinced at all. Surprisingly, no one has tried to replicate this invention.
Hinz states that they currently don’t have any future plans to patent the product, and since they don’t ever plan on releasing the design for it, but rather selling by the kilowatt-hour delivered, they don’t want to rush into the process. Nevertheless, a lack of a patent could leave room for future competitive designs should the outcome of Earth Engines prove to be successful.
With Danzik engineering what has been considered scientifically impossible for many years, who knows what else can be discovered. His ideas might even lead to a plethora of continued advancements that can revolutionize how the country operates.
