On the Anomalous Weight Losses of High Voltage Symmetrical Capacitors

  title={On the Anomalous Weight Losses of High Voltage Symmetrical Capacitors},
  author={Elio B. Porcelli and Victo S. Filho},
In this work, we analyzed an anomalous effect verified from symmetrical capacitor devices, working in very high electric potentials. The mastery of that effect could mean in the future the possible substitution of propulsion technology based on fuels by single electrical propulsion systems. From experimental measurements, we detected small variations of the device inertia that cannot be associated with known interactions, so that the raised force apparently has not been completely elucidated by…

KELEA (Kinetic Energy Limiting Electrostatic Attraction) May Add to the Measured Weight of an Object
Fluctuating measurements of the weight of aluminum foil objects have been observed during the course of experiments on a natural force termed KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic attraction).

We describe the phenomenon of generation of an external field of forces from piezoelectric materials subjected to the application of electric fields or mechanical stress. We show that piezoelectric


Force on an Asymmetric Capacitor
Abstract : When a high voltage (approx. 30 kV) is applied to a capacitor whose electrodes have different physical dimensions, the capacitor experiences a net force toward the smaller electrode
Exploratory Research on the Phenomenon of the Movement of High Voltage Capacitors
Experiments performed with high voltage single and parallel plate electric capacitors indicated a net external force acting upon the capacitor mass. The observed tendency was that the charged

With its theoretical origins dating back to the early 1920s, the Biefeld‐Brown effect was believed to be responsible for the generation of thrust in capacitor configurations exposed to high voltage.
