A generator that utilizes a magnetic flux amplifier to generate energy to power devices in offgrid areas particularly medical equipment such as immunization , specimen and blood coolers thus saving lives in vulnerable communities.

The innovation works as a magnetic flux amplifier mainly for energy production.As a scientific fact nothing can stop magnetic flux flow but in this innovation a change in magnetic flux through a laminated core or a ferrite core can produce an EMF at the two ends of the coil based on the formulae EMF=N*RATE OF CHANGE OF FLUX where n is the number of turns of the coil.There are two grids whose po...

The innovation works as a magnetic flux amplifier mainly for energy production.As a scientific fact nothing can stop magnetic flux flow but in this innovation a change in magnetic flux through a laminated core or a ferrite core can produce an EMF at the two ends of the coil based on the formulae EMF=N*RATE OF CHANGE OF FLUX where n is the number of turns of the coil.There are two grids whose potential is controlled by a control system whose frequency of operation is adjustable.One grid-1 has a current flowing through (grid-2 has no current flowing through it) it to produce a magnetic field which opposes the field from the permanent magnet and diverts the flux to a path of less reluctance through a laminated core-1 which will change the magnetic flux in that core from zero to maximum to induce an Emf.The current from grid-1 is switched off and grid-2 switches on to create a point of high reluctance for the flux which was flowing through it.This will again change the direction of the flux from core-1 (flux falls from max to zero) to core-2 whose flux through it changes from zero to maximum to induce an Emf on the core wound round it.The Emf induced in the respective coils is increased by increasing the switching speed of the two grids.The long grids can accommodate many switching systems to give many outputs since a current carrying conductor will create a magnetic field along all its path.The control and grid system power is constant and it can be from a small solar system.

I have developed a prototype which is working as per the theory explained and developing blue prints for the same.I wish to develop a commercial prototype for the creation of a technical and user manual certified by our local certification body KEBS.

Problem

My innovation addresses the problem of low electric power generation in my country since there is need for a better cost effective method of production-Kenya still relies on hydro-electric power which is affected by the weather changes,the alternate method used is by fossil fuels which is expensive Resulting in high cost of energy,low foreign investments -cost of power in Kenya is 4 times that of S.africa hence high unemployment.The new methods proposed will pollute the environment even more.

Solution

My innovation is aimed at energy production which is cheaper in comparison to the methods currently used.The innovation does not pollute the environment and it is not weather dependent.As per my designs the power can be produced by smaller stand alone generators which minimizes the loses along the routes.The innovation is easier to install and the maintenance is minimal since it has no moving parts.The system can be miniaturized for small power outputs.For high powers the systems can be cascaded

Target Beneficiaries

With this innovation i aim to serve people living in the rural areas where there is no power for lighting homes,schools and hospitals.In rural areas which in Kenya are usually agricultural based food loses are enormous due to poor or no storage at all.The innovation can pump water cheaply for food security.The innovation can be used for cooking stoves in all areas saving on our trees,the environment both in rural and urban areas.National government as power can be produced for the national grid

Mission and Vision

The mission of the innovation is to produce clean,cost effective,easy to install and accessible energy for all. The vision of the innovation is to create a green world with enough food for all and free from all manner of fossil fuels and other energy related pollutants.

Competitive Advantage

The innovation has a competitive edge in that unlike the existing systems,it has no physical moving parts.The only moving component is the magnetic flux which switches from one laminated core to another.The amount of power produced can be varied by the rate at which the magnetic flux is switched whose demand is monitored at the output.The system used neodymium magnets which looses it's magnetism at 1% per 100 years.This means that the running cost is minimal thus it's easy application in the rural and marginalized areas.The innovation can easily be miniaturized to power cell phones,computers in rural areas,it can also be used to power drones which come in handy in areas not easily accessed for medical needs,carrying medicines,laboratory tests and security purposes.The system can be used for satellite to reduce the big solar panels.The system is installed closest to the demand to minimize transmission loses.The system does not pollute the environment.It's easy to install and maintain.

Planned Goals and Milestones

I intend to increase the areas of application for this innovation to cover as many applications as possible to the area of house hold goods,automobile electric engines,aircraft electric engines,electric stoves which will go a long way in saving our forests.I also to research and produce large unit for use to supply the national grid.I hope to convert the innovation into a company with a global presence like any other multinational.
