Electric OU: Wireless Power, Supernova Mode, Scopeshots, Phase Relationships
Here I show the “supernova mode” (SNM) and how it is different from the normal broadcast power, inverse-square falloff with distance that is expected from a broadcast system. In SNM, the power linking the two modules increases with distance and there is no falloff in the received power, as shown by the constant brightness of the bulb and the constant amplitude of the receiver’s oscillating voltage. The phase relationships between the receiver’s signal and the transmitter’s are also shown. During “normal” operation the receiver’s signal and the transmitter’s are exactly in phase, with perhaps a slightly changing shift as distance and frequency change. When the SN transition happens, the signals “snap” into a 180 degree phase shift in either the TX or RX signal, plus an additional slight shift of a few degrees. And of course… the AMPLITUDE of the Rx voltage is now greater than the amplitude of the output of the transmitter. (Pause to let that sink in.) I think picowatt predicted or at least speculated — or perhaps only wondered — that this would occur in the forum thread discussing these matters, based on his knowledge of and experience with electronic circuits and the normal way of analyzing these things.
