Patent application US4507567A of a spark-gap triggered very-high-voltage spike

While the term Flux capacitor conjures images of a DeLorean time machine, the patents for a flux capacitor date back to 1962 (still searching earlier instances).

A Flux capacitor consists of a double-capacitor rolled together of dielectric layers and iron tape. When both properly wired double capacitor layers are charged, discharging both layers together will create a voltage spike on the open-end of the spiral capacitor.

The reverse effect is also true, enabling this double-layered iron-plastic swiss-roll coil to operate resonantly by the blue man team.

This reversible effect inspired the biological author to begin a design project.

See the Flux Capacitor Project.

Iron is not necessary to create the effect. Iron affects the vector inversion by slowing and magnifying the effect, just as will ferrous material in an electrical electromagnet.

The shorter the output pulse, the higher the voltage spike produced.


Qualities of the flux capacitor

  • In pulse-mode, the output duration is a function of the length of the iron spiral.
  • The edges of the iron tape of the capacitor spiral magnetize oppositely, with a north edge of the tape, and a south edge. The magnetic field appears at a transverse-direction current/voltage flowing around the spiral.

Magnetic spiral diode

Whether a spiral flux capacitor is charging, or discharging, the current flows the same direction around the spiral. This is because it is charged from the outside of the spiral inward, and it is discharged at the spiral center, so current flows also the same direction around the spiral when discharging.

The device is a magnetic diode, as charging or discharging creates the same polarity magnetic field, which opposite poles appear at either end of the iron swill roll.

The fixed magnetic polarization of the flux capacitor is determined by the hand of the dielectric/iron/dielectric/iron spiral wrapping direction.

While AC electrical sine wave oscillation was happening on a flux cap, there is double the frequency of non-alternating magnetic pulses. Each pulse is the same magnetic polarity. Each electrical half cycle produces one magnetic pulse.

While consisting of ferrous material, there will be less eddy current heating of the iron tape for two reasons:

  1. The tape is thin, which decreases eddy current generation.
  2. The magnetic flux does not reverse, but the flux peaks twice, one peak charging from the outside, another peak when discharging to the middle.
