Exploring Parallel Path Magnetic Technology - Overunity in Disguise?

The Concept

Fundamentally, the parallel path technology or concept involves permanent magnets and electromagnets wherein a relatively smaller electrical input into the electromagnet is used to force the permanent magnet's lines of fluxes to concentrate on a particular side of the system, while also ensuring a zero magnetic field on the opposite side of the system.

Let's try to understand the proposed concept through the following classic example.

Explaining Parallel Path Magnetism

During our school and college days we all have probably played with magnets and know a few basic things about how permanent magnets behave.

For those who are not well versed with magnetic theory let's summarize a few of the basic things about these natural power devices, and begin with the proposed concept of parallel path technology discussion right from the scratch


The above figure shows a simple set up where a permanent magnet can be seen sandwiched across one end between two horizontal ferromagnetic material or plates. Another ferromagnetic plate can also be seen attached vertically across the opposite free ends of the two horizontal plates.

The lines of fluxes shown in the diagram indicate that the vertical bar is being magnetized by the influence of the permanent magnet.

Since the single permanent magnet is the only unit working on the vertical plate, let's assume the magnetic force of attraction on the vertical plate to be a magnitude of unit 1.


Now as shown in the above figure, suppose we introduce another permanent magnet into the empty slot between the horizontal ferromagnetic plates, obviously now the magnetic force over the vertical plate would double since the lines of force now would become twice than the previous situation, and understandably exert a force of attraction which may be assumed to be of magnitude of unit 2.


Next, consider another vertical ferromagnetic plate being added on the other side of the two horizontal plates as shown above.

In this situation, the units of force would get evenly distributed across both the ends of the system, such that the force of attraction could be assumed to be unit 1 magnitude on either side of the horizontal bars.

Well, till now it's just basic magnetism theory that we are witnessing, and the parallel path magnetism concept has not yet gotten into the discussion.

In the next section we'll actually see how the above ordinary theory is transformed into an intriguing parallel path technology having huge practicable potentials


In the figure above we can see an interesting modification being done wherein the mid-section of the horizontal bars are wound with coils of wires (super enameled), and the magnets being shifted at the extreme ends.

Nope, the coils are not yet functional, and the magnetic force over the end vertical plates are still 1 unit on either side.

What happens when an electrical input (DC) is fed across the coils of wire?? We'll see the effect in the next section.

It seems your eyes are already glued in the figure above and you are finding it hard to believe the indicated results.

The result in the above figure shows a massive diversion or accumulation of magnetic force over one particular side of the plates which actually takes place with an electrical input that need not be more than 1 unit of magnetic force.

It implies that with an electromagnetic input of 1 unit we are able to achieve an unbelievable 4 units of magnetic power, and moreover this power can be forced to switch sides at any pace by simply switching the electrical polarity, which is not a great deal in today's advanced electronics world.

Although it could look astonishing, and defying the standard laws of conservation of energy, the indicated opposite magnitude of forces diverted over the two ends of the plates are absolutely correct and is a proved reality.

The electrical input which is an optimal calculated value when applied through specifically wound coils influences the lines of fluxes of the permanent magnets such that they concentrate on one particular end of the plates depending on the polarity of the electrical input.

The action also results in a total neutralization of the magnetic lines of force across the other opposite end of the configuration making it completely void of any magnetic field.

The indicated unit 4 magnitude is due to the 2 units from the permanent magnets while 2 units from the two coil winding.


In the above figure we can see an identical action but the force being switched to the other side.

This is simply done by reversing the polarity of the electrical input over the coils.

If this switching is implemented in a rapid manner with the help of a suitable electronic circuit, we can assume a rapid magnetic switching with a force of unit 4 across the ends.

If we can convert this linear switching into a rotational one, how much do you think the efficiency of such a motor could be? What? Is it 400% that I heard?....technically that looks feasible, yet even the inventor of the technology Mr.Joe Flynn is reluctant in accepting the fact openly due to some obvious reasons, however as we can see, the above explained theory clearly indicates the concept to be a convincing overunity, perhaps in a more disguised form.

Dear Mdm. Gladis:

It's great to know your analytical point of view on PPMT by Mr. Flynn. I am totally attracted by your critical insight in this special technical knowledge.

Here is an equation that can be used to quantify how much voltages could be generated on each end of the two loads.

E(voltage generated)=[(pm)^2 *0.8658*f*N*B*A]

pm stands for number of permanent magnets in this case, it is 2;

f, stands for frequency of an input voltage in Hz

N, stands for the numbers of turns on each coil, when the side load are replaced by the inductive coils described in Flynn's original patents. Your intuitive approach inspired my thought to combine them into one.

B, stands for the magnetic strength in unit of tesla,

A, stands for the area of the inductive coils.

Now, when f=60 Hz, N=1,200 turns, B=1.2 tesla, A=1.65x 10 (-4) m squared, and Pm=2. You can come up what voltages is beoing extracted from this unique device. And you will certainly know what voltage to be installed at the input side.

This is not invented by me but inspired my thought to make sense so some day my niece is able to make his Ly-IGDT

in the real world. Ly,his last name, and IGDT is an abbreviation of inductor guided dipole transfermag. Submitted in highest level of honest and sincerity in my heart on May 26th,2017 by Payl C. Li at Zhuhai, Guangdong, CN.
