Basic engine operation:

The engine has four cycles:

Ascent high positive inductive harvest 
+5 E

medium positive kinetic harvest
+5 K

Negatively charged rising rotors loaded with fluid induce charge in positive field. Rising rotors impact stators generating kinetic spinning. Rotor introduction enforces upward progression.
Low density transfer medium negative electrical drain
-2 E

low negative kinetic drain
-1 K

Rotors are polarized by passing through negatively polarized chamber. Stored electrical potential is drained.

Loaded rotors are aided during transition by slow spinning stator, from top of ascent chamber to top of descent chamber.  Light kinetic drain.

high positive inductive harvest
+8 E

medium positive kinetic harvest
+8 K

Fluid loaded negatively charged rotors fall through descent chamber inducting positive charge to energy storage array.
Fluid loaded rotors impact multiple spinning stators generating significant kinetic energy into kinetic storage system [drive train, possibly with flywheel attached].

High density transfer
medium negative  electrical drain
-2 E

medium negative kinetic drain
-3 K

Rotors at the bottom of the descent chamber are polarized by passing through negatively polarized chamber. Stored electrical potential is drained. Partially drained rotors are re-introduced to the base of the ascent chamber via a rotating locking mechanism.  This rotating locking mechanism minimizes the fluid drain from the ascent chamber into the descent chamber.  Kinetic energy stored in the drive train and flywheel, is employed to maintain a continuous flow of rotors being introduced to the bottom of the ascent chamber.
Notes: [Design notes]

1. Powered siphon system must evacuate fluid from base of descent chamber.  Siphon is powered from stored energy in drive train.  Siphon must be established at system initiation, and will assist in fluid synchrony within the system even at idle.

2. If initiator (crank) is employed to begin the cycle, it can also be used during the introduction or replacement of dysfunctional rotors.

3. System is design to be connected to a parallel array of 12v lead acid batteries.  Lithium batteries can also be employed.

4. Alternatives to batteries can be pumped hydro storage, or pressurized gas.

As the rotors are moved against the stators energy is harvested via both induction and kinetics.
INDRA project development prize

The INDRA institute, a bio-recharge think tank sponsored by Gravitational Systems Engineering inc., a prominent US military contractor based in Alexandria Va, announces a $10,000 prize for the development of a gravity powered engine based upon, patent pending, vetted company designs.

Gravity power is the next big thing in the alternative energy field.

Gravity has been used for centuries to generate power from flowing water via dams. Gravity is the always available energy source when compared to solar, wind or fuel based combustion.

Fundamental gravity powered devices like the siphons, low head hydro, or the reverse Archimedes screw, employ gravity as a power source, yet gravity as a power source has languished when faced with progress in other forms of power.

Gravity powers the strongest forces on the planet, wind, rain, and weight itself, yet our science and technology view this energy source as untamable, almost mystical.

The GSE VTD engine is a step towards replacing expensive solar and wind generators, and polluting fuel based combustion, with a simple non-polluting alternative that can easily be replicated with local materials.

A gravity engine operates by maintaining a gravity concentrating cycle of kinetic events.

Electrical energy is inductively harvested from the constructed height and depth employing optimized materials and forms. The VTD engine was invented by GSE head engineer, Gare Henderson, Ph.D. in 2001.

This competition will bring the winning development team to international prominence, and perhaps a place in future history books. An efficient design, which is easy to construct with local materials, will quickly be replicated in millions of backyards and basements around the world.

The international competition starts April 8, 2017 and runs until October 1, 2017. The challenge is to construct and efficient version of the GSE VTD engine. The VTD engine can be constructed of inexpensive, possibly re-cycled,  materials including wood, plastic and copper wire.

The competition is designed to both advance gravity powered technology, to a level competitive with solar or wind powered generators, and to promote the use of the gravity engine technology across the globe.

The VTD engine is an induction generator that provides both kinetic and electrical power, and can provide sufficient off-grid power to operate a western home, or remote village,  when constructed at a scale similar to a wind or solar generator of similar output.

The free competition materials include design guidelines and extensive engineering notes that will aid the competitor in completing their entry with minimal cost. A significant engineering GSE R&D contract may be available to the winning teams.
