The Wireless Power Transmission System


i = q/s and q = is

q = 31.6amps x 2.16 x 10-7 s

q = 6.8x10-6 coulombs

If 100 watts is assumed for the detector circuit, the current at 50 ohms is:

I = square root (100/50) = 1.4 amps

and the charge:

q = 1.4 amps x 2.16 x 10-7 = 3 x 10-7 coulombs

Using Coulomb's law to calculate the force on each charge separated by the given distance:

F=(q1q2)/(4p e 0r2)

F=(3x10-7)(6.8x10-6)/(4p (8.9 x 10-12)(6.4x104)2)

F = 4.5x10-12 nt. = 4.5x10-7 dynes

Assuming, finally, that the detector circuit uses a 100 microfarad capacitor, the force of the field will result in a voltage as such:

e = square root (F/(C x 107))

e = square root ((4.5 x 10-7)/(100x10-6x107))

e = 21 x 10-6

A change of 21 microvolts would be well above the 5 microvolt level required for a radio receiver to capture a signal from the electrostatic detector circuit. It should be remembered, too, that Tesia worked at higher energy levels than used in this example. He used hundreds of amps at lower frequencies(more charge) and potentials of millions of volts.

This analysis of Tesla's wireless transmission method is preliminary, but does indicate the type of field of force and distance calculations that have to be made in order to have a successful electrostatic communication system. Issues dealing with the optimum frequencies, the earth as a dielectric, and the function of the earth's charge in power transmission have to be investigated. This is in addition to the questions yet to be discovered. However, it is clear that 100 years ago Nikola Tesia began a branch of communication technology that differs significantly from that in use today.
