Title:
DEVICES AND METHODS FOR MECHANICALLY COUPLING MAGNETIC FIELD INDUCED MOTION
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/059280
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
Apparatus for coupling magnetic forces into motive force includes a spinner shaft on which a helical array of magnets is mounted and a magnetic power bed. The magnetic power bed includes first and second magnetic boost elements configured to interact magnetically with the helical array of magnets to cause the spinner shaft to rotate as the helical array of magnets passes between the first and second magnetic boost elements, the first magnetic boost element includes two magnets separated by a magnetically responsive material and the second magnetic boost element includes a single magnet, thereby defining a tri-field magnetic flux within the magnetic power bed. The magnetic power bed may further include an auxiliary power bed that interacts with the first and second magnetic boost elements and the helical array. The apparatus may include two or more magnetic power bed with one or more magnetic field shunt bridges extending between the magnetic power beds.
