DC motor from AC
Part of my wireless electricity flight project – this is where i’m up to with gaining DC rectification from MHz AC broadcasts. The circuit is a Slayer type (see the great work of GBluer and JonnyDavro for the background), running from around 1.5V. The emitted AC is strong enough to light a neon bulb wirelessly…but needed to be smoothed out to DC and the current amplified for running anything practical. A 9014 transistor performs the amplifying job in this video…a quick test for a first run and works. A long way to go….
