The TeslaGen V1 mini QEG is a new open sourced co-development project intended on building a portable reluctance generator that can power loads between 700w-900w or more. This project is based around building, teaching and open sourcing instructions. This can help a wider array of DIY engineers learn formerly suppressed engineering skills based on the creation of electrical power through the phenomenon Nikola Tesla discovered, known as resonance and radiant energy. Some of the exciting key features of the TeslaGen v1 mini QEG are; lower price, smaller and lighter weight, CAD files made available, easier core winding, hot-swap rotor, easy experimentation with other popular “free energy” techniques.
Tesla Gen V1 Mini QEG System Description
The TeslaGen v1 mini QEG is an adaptation of one of Nikola Tesla’s many patented electrical generator / dynamo / alternator designs. The particular patent referenced is No. 511,916, titled simply “Electric Generator”, and dated January 2, 1894. The adaptation is a conversion from a linear generating system with a reciprocating rod whose period is electrically regulated, to a rotary generating system. The reciprocating rod is replaced by a rotor whose motion is also electrically regulated, by means of tuned parametric resonance (parametric oscillation). The original intent of the patent (electrical regulation of the period (frequency) of a repetitive mechanical motion) is further expanded through subsequent utilization and application of mechanical self‐resonance and radiant energy, in order to make the machine self‐sustaining.
The TeslaGen v1 mini QEG is a smaller design than the original QEG, and can be used on its own or with the original QEG for easier and faster experimentation of this unique form of energy creation. It is a two phase, six-pole, dual resonant generator. It has a new separable stator to allow for easy winding and is capable of powering loads between 700w-900w (conservative). Driven by a DC motor, and powered by your water, solar or wind installation, the TeslaGen v1 is built to provide available electricity during outages or off grid. With further development, this generator has the potential to power itself. The construction is a simple, yet rugged combination of high strength plastic frame and support rods, and is made using widely available parts and fittings. All parts of this reluctance generator is CNC manufactured, and the Computer Aided Design files for these parts will be made available online through this project.
The length of the generator is 17 inches and approximately 7×7 inches wide. The rotor consists of a steel core and a stator. There are no magnets and no commutator. The construction consists of rigid plastic and metal, but mostly plastic so it’s lighter. The endplates are made from polycarbonate, which is about 30 times stronger than acrylic. The support blocks making the frame of the device are nylon 66, which is also very rugged. It has a weighted pulley option to run testing with weights and gaining momentum over time. There are pillow block bearings, good for 6,000 rpm on the rotor that are mounted on the outboard. The main shaft is connected to the rotor on the inside by shaft coupling locking devices. Optional is to connect the rotor directly to the shaft and have the rotor balanced. In this design the lock coupling device allows you to swap between different rotor configurations with relative speed. The rotor and stator is made from .35mm laminations. The stator is comprised of 4 separate interlocking sectors, which, allows you to take out each section and slide a pre-wound bobbin onto each side, and these sections can then be put back together. This makes for easier winding.
This construction is inspired through contributions from the QEG forums working with other engineers.

About the Project
This project is open source. The TeslaGen v1 is patent and license free. This is a project in co-development, which is a unique way of opening this up to allow other DIY engineers to build alongside us and openly share their experiments and findings with others in a global online community. We are doing this in this manner because it is a way for the people to literally take back their power, and to help others develop forgotten skills and learn about suppressed engineering technology. Without enthusiasts like you, this open source project simply would not be possible. The more the merrier. So lets do this!
