By the application of safety spark gaps, with interpolation of electromagnets, not only is short-circuiting avoided but also the taking up of current is regulated.
Over this in turn there is a plausob layer in which alone the metal foot of the tube is secured.
Thejribs are -further’connected with one another intern’allyand transverscly by external surface is obtained. In Figure 28 the connecting conductor between the separate accumulator balloons is carried out according to the autotransformer principle.
Plauson’s US Patent 1, describes methods to convert alternating radiant static electricity plausoj rectified continuous current pulses. By the use of closed oscillatory circuits it is possible to obtain electromagnetic waves of various amplitude and thereby to increase the degree of hefmann of such current. A single electromagnet only having a core of the thinnest possible separate laminations is connected with the aerial.
In order to lead the earth connection to the ground hermanm, a well insulated pit constructed of vitreous brick, must be provided. The width of the network may be of any suitable size and the connection of the motors can take place at any suitable places. Of course the inductive effect may be regulated at will within the limits of the size of the induction coil, the length of the coil in action being adjustable by means of wire connection without induction see Figure 24, No.
The size of the balloon is selected so that the actual weight of the balloon and the weight of the conducting wire is supported thereby. The author cites several German patents. Such reversing poles have theadvantage that with large quantities I of electrical energy the spark formation between the separate oscillation circuits ceases.

By the application of safety spark gaps, with interpolation of electromagnets, not only is short-circuiting avoided but also the taking up of current is regulated. The stator surface 1 and the rotor surface 3 being both charged with positive electricity and the second rotor surfaces 4 and 4a by brushes 4x with negative electricity, such motors can then be started by providing intermediate stator surfaces 11, 12, the earth connection 13 of one of which is broken by a switch not shown according to the direction of rotation desires, or alternatively the motor may be started by a separate source of alternating current in a manner similar to the starting of synchronous motors hermann known construction.
According to what has been hereinbefore stated separate collector balloons may be connected at equidistant stations distributed over the entire country, either connected directly with one another metallically or by means of intermediate suitably connected condenser batteries through high voltage conductors insulated from earth.
The object of this invention is as described below, if such incandescent oxide electrodes plason other incandescent radiators or flames are not freely suspended in space hermaann connected metallically with the earth so that they can be charged with negative terrestrial electricity, these radiators possess the property of absorbing the free positive electrical charges contained in the air space surrounding them that is to say of collecting them and conducting them to earth.
Further, with such currents a series of apparatus may be fed without direct current supply through conductors and also the electro-magnetic high frequency currents may be converted by means of special motors adapted for electro-magnetic oscillations into mechanical energy, or finally converted by special machines into alternating current of low frequency or even into direct current of high potential.
The power would take the form of high potential difference with a discharge almost of a static nature. Recent improvements in motors for working with static charges and motors working by resonance, that is to say, having groups of tuned electromagnetic cooperating circuits render this possible but such do not form part of the present invention. A cable L is carried well insulated through the cover of a vessel and ends in a condenser disc 5. Particularly in the tropics or still better in the polar regions where the northern lights are constantly present, large quantities of energy may probably be obtained in this way.
Dr Plauson devotes many pages of his book to describing his motor.
If the hernann is connected by brushes 3 and 4 transversely to the two arms of the bridge lUU as shown in the drawings, electromagnetic” oscillations of equal sign are induced in the stator surfaces 1 and 2 and the motor does not revolve. In all these cases the current must be converted into a current of suitable periodicity.
The discharge formed are converted into mechanical energy in special motors and cannot reach the aerial network by reason of the electromagnet or choke. Special kinds of motors adapted for working with these peculiarelectrical charges ‘fmay be connected at Figure 25 shows a diagram for such an installation.
Methods of obtaining atmospheric electricity by means of metallic nettings set with spikes which are held by means of ordinary or anchored kite balloons made of fabric and filled with hydrogen, are in theory already known. It travels along the aerial A through the electromagnet S without begin checked as it flows in the same direction as the direct current. A copy is also available in PDF-format, complete with Optical Character Recognition, through the books2ebooks service, here.

Steel wires silver-plated, copper-plated, or aluminum-coated, run from the balloon to the pendant or junction ring.
The windings of these electromagnets may be simply connected in series with the aerials. The maximum action will result if one brush 3 comes on the central sparking contact 7 and the other brush 4 on the part x. A German scientist, Hermann Plauson, has published a very elaborate work on this subject, and has investigated the use of kites, balloons and towers, for the utilization of the high potentials existing in the air at different altitudes, and has studied out the construction of motors to be operated by the peculiar type of discharge which will be obtained, if the projects are successfully carried out.
So far it seems to be the cheapest form of power known, it being much cheaper even than water power the cheapest form of power known today. The connecting wire of the balloon aerials is indicated as a primary conductor and also as a current producing network; the other is the consumption network and is not in unipolar connection with the current producing network. Dr Jefimenko carried out experiments on driving electrostatic motors from the Earth’s electric field in the s and has recently called for research into the neglected field of electrostatic motors to be renewed.
A is the collecting balloon made of an aluminum magnesium alloy electron metal, magnalium of a specific gravity of 1. Thereby constant undamped oscillations are now produced in the oscillation circuits We had occasion, in one of our former issues, to describe the system, roughly, from cabled dispatches, but complete information is available now.
