TWM gets US patent on overunity electromagnetic motor
Allegedly, not only does TWM Technology, LLC's motor produces enough electricity to keep its batteries topped off, with energy left over for other use, but it also produces torque. The motor does not heat up under load, so it can be built from cheaper materials, including wood and plastic.

Henry Johnson, Marketing Director for TWM Technology, LLC, contacted me on Sept. 7 to inform me that one of their electric motor patents had been awarded that same day.
The patent describes the layout of the motor, but it doesn't say that with this layout the motor is allegedly able to run from a battery, keep that battery charged, and produce excess energy for use -- harvesting electrical energy from the environment somehow in the process. It's like a solar array, harvesting energy from nature, except that the source of power doesn't rise and set each day, nor is it obstructed by clouds, dust or bird droppings. Put simply, it is claimed (not in the patent) to be a self-looped system with energy left over for use. The excess comes from nature through the set-up.
The awarded patent confirms that the design is unique.
Imagine a motor that could power a pickup truck without stopping for fuel; and the motor is just as powerful but just 1/3 the size of the regular engine. That is the prototype they are presently working on, and think they might have worked out soon.
Meanwhile, Johnson says they do have other prototypes that can be seen and demonstrated that exhibit the overunity effect -- more power out than is put in. One prototype is made of wood rather than metal and spins at 15,000 rpm. Another prototype puts out 1/3 of a horsepower, and runs up to 10,000 rpms. He said the "prototype motor works beautifully."
They have had a hard time getting support from mainstream scientists because the claim goes against conventional "laws of physics" as to what is and is not possible. "The one one who really understands what we're doing is Tom Bearden," said Johnson. I was in on a three-way conference call with Bearden last year in which he described why TWM was able to do what they are doing. It was amazing.
The way Johnson describes it is that "the process magnifies the magnetic energy of a permanent magnets." Put simplistically, as two magnets in the rotor pass by five electromagnets in the stator with alternating polarities, there are 20 compressions in each rotation because both sides of the magnet are being used, and there are two magnets in the rotor. Johnson explains that when the motor spins at 4,000 rpms the permanent magnets are being pulsed ("magnified") 70 times per second. Secondary windings in each coil of the electromagnet pick up back EMF and dump it into a capacitor to recharge the battery. And not only do the permanent magnets not deplete, but the "compression" effect actually tends to strengthen the magnets. Furthermore, the faster the motor spins, the less current it draws proportionately. And it doesn't produce heat due to its efficiency, even under heavy load, so it could be manufactured from cheaper materials including plastic and wood. The motor has a lot of torque.
"We've figured out how to make magnets the fuel", says Todd Thorpe, TWM President.
As of the writing of this story, the USPTO patent database is current to Sept. 7, but apparently doesn't include the TWM patent yet.
You can view the patent application titled simply "Electric motor", with lead inventor, Kenny L. Wheeler, filed on Aug. 13, 2007.
Back in 2008 TWM claimed to have run a moped for 8 miles in a gymnasium, leaving the batteries with the same charge they started out with. The combined weight of the moped and rider was about 350 pounds.
Johnson says that they are "very close" to being to the point where they can commercialize this technology. He welcomed our New Energy Congress to arrange to do a validation of their technology. As mentioned in our last story, we are presently seeking a grant to finance such validations, as they are not cheap to execute.
