I really recommend to check this link above,, the text below is from there and there is massive amount of information, complete with pictures of patents etc..
Atmospheric Electric Generator
Shared by L. Cozma ( Thanks ! ) --
The Guillot device generated about 2.5-3 Kilowatts with antenna height of ~ 20 meters. Power depends on the total collector surface and height of the vertical antenna. The apparatus in the photo produced ~300 watts with a collector 2 meters tall.
"Practical Utilization of Atmospheric Electricity"
in The Invention Encyclopedia, pp. 204-207 ( 1930, Geo. Constantinescu, Ed. )
"The Earth has its own negative electricity, in the soil, and the atmosphere which surrounds the Earth is charged with positive electricity. The electric potential (the voltage) increases with the altitude, so we can say that the electric force is proportional to the atmospheric altitude (after Franklin, Quetelet, Lord Kelvin, Mascart, Joubert and other scientists).
The recent observations demonstrate that the air at 6000-7000 meters in altitude, is very highly charged with positive electricity, which could be explained by the friction between the external photosphere and the upper atmosphere of Earth, which rotates at a speed of more than 100,000 Kilometer per hour.
In that way, the Earth works like an electrostatic generator with electric charging by influence --- the upper atmosphere is positively charged by influence and the Earth crust obtains the negative polarity.
Between the two environments, the air and the soil, and inside the low atmosphere, in conditions of good weather, there are sbout 800 positive ions and also, 680 negative ion (and electrons) in just one square-centimeter of normal ionised air.
The Earth behaves like an huge electric armature negatively charged, which repels the electrons and attracts the positive ions. That positive ions' attraction determinates an electric current, also called "convective current". That's like an invisible continous bombardment, subject to daily and seasonal variations, which could be aproximated at 3 x 10 ^ -16 Amperes per square-centimeter, and that is a total value of 1500 Amperes for the entire surface of the Earth.
The question is --- how does this current always maintains the same direction ? We can suppose that the natural radioactive emissions of the soil is responsable for this. We also know that radioactive emissions of the Earth works usually near the soil surface, and that explains the ionisation phenomenona inside caves.
The ionisation of the low atmosphere could also be the effect of the radioactive emissions of the Earth, especially when the X radiation works. Also, the Earth atmosphere is ionisated by the external radiation proceeding from the Sun and from the space environment, especially the action of ultraviolet radiation and the electron fascicles emitted by the Sun surface, at the temperature of 6000 deg. Celsius.
The capture of atmosphere electricity has been used in France, with aerial cables mounted on the Mont Blanc, and also in Germany --- with conductive cables carried by the captive baloons.
The atmosphere electricity collect system invented by eng. Jules Guillot is most ingenious and it relies on "the electric siphon" [ m.n. --- the discharging devices or spark-gap used today from the protection of aerial electric cables against the atmospheric electricity ; Jules Guillot has thought to recuperate and to use that electricity ].
His method consisted in the direct "pumping" of the atmosphere electricity using a collecting device which had two antennae and several collecting rods.
One antenna is vertical and it has a lot of rods scattered like an opened fan, with the tips against the zenith, for collecting the negative electricity which comes from the air ; the horizontal antenna is orientated against the South and its role is to collect the positive electricity.
The air electricity seems to have the double-polarity, as we can see at two electrised clouds when between them apears the electric discharge. The air could have different electric charging and the ionisation processus of atmosphere is very heterogenous. The inventor Guillot used two separated and insulated armatures with the positive armature against the South ( more precisely, against the Equator...) and the negative armature against the zenith.
We can see in the scheme :
1,- the device P is the "collector apparatus" having 15-20 meters height ; it also has a lot of rods which are scattered fan-like, all this on top of an iron pillar ; and also an horizontal antenna S oriented against the South ; the two antennae are disposed at 90 deg. angle forming the two armatures where the electrical tension must apear. As the height of the pillar increases, the voltage increases more and more ;
2,- a system of lightning-rods ( p1, p2, p3 ) for protection against discharges of atmospheric electricity during storms;
3,- the regulator system (voltage regulator, etc) R ;
4,- the electric resistors ( Cn ) for absorbing the parasite currents ;
5,- the "electric siphons" which have the role of making a magnetic field as a good environment for the transport of the ionized fluid, absorbing the electricity from the air ; the E1 and E2 are their regulator devices ;
6,- an auxilliary continous current power supply which send the current against an special excitation coil, used as starting device ; it works only when the system is starting.
This collector device works very good for lighting and heating. The device made by Guillot had
20 meters height on the total surface of 3 square-meters. Also, J.Guillot used and electrical transformer for the industrial utilization of this "collector" --- as power supply for industrial electric engines."
