I've never heard of this technology, give me a technical overview?


Over the last few decades industry and commerce has discovered that energy can come from sources other than traditional physical transformational methods such as combustion, fission, or fusion.  These physical transformational methods areDiffusion of energy into road from vehicles based upon a fuel model   While all energy results from state changes, the traditional methods represent a small fraction of viable state changes.   Wind, solar, and hydro power are classed as ephemeral state change energy sources, in that they are based upon temporal state changes, rather than physical changes. Wind, solar, and hydro are based upon a field model.   At GSE we see all state changes as energetic, and many as viable if concentrated and directed.  GSE methods are based upon a variation or change model.  

The illustration on the right demonstrates the nature of inertial energy.  Observe that when the vehicles are stationary, weight is diffused directly below the vehicle, as indicated by the red columns. However, as the vehicles begin to move a dynamic energy wave flows in synchrony with the vehicle into the roadway, or as  torsional waves in independent structures such as bridges.  It is this dynamic energy wave that GSE devices harvest, and convert into gas compression, fluid pressure, or directly into electrical energy.


GSE pumps and compressors, gain energy from the movement of significant animated masses, (i.e. livestock, motor vehicles, trains, and grounded aircraft).  Contrary to popular misconceptions, GSE methods can be engineered to be completely transparent to a targeted mass.  That is to say, that if the technology is engineered into the fundamental structure of a structure, (i.e. road, bridge, or building), as opposed applied to a post-production design, just as with field model methods, no additional vehicle fuel, or livestock calories need be consumed by the method.

All of GSE's current methods are primarily based upon concentrating and directing gravitational energy into various storable forms such as physical pressure, or weight.  The logical proof of gravity as a viable source, is that none of GSE current products would work on the International Space Station (ISS) or the moon.

The energy potentials of GSE R-series units, assuming (average speed 45 mph, average vehicle weight 4.800 lbs) is equal to 24,816 BTu  per lane mile at 80% traffic densities. [Note: these numbers represent ideal conditions and 100% deployment].  This means that the 6 lanes of traffic on a 30 mile section of VA  I-66, could ideally during rush hour, generate 4,466,880 BTu per second or 4.7 Gigawatts per second.   Each percentage point is equal to 47 Megawatts.  This translates to a 1 foot wide GSE R-series device placed at 100 foot intervals on the roadway, and is enough power to operate all of the stationary lighting, signage, and toll plazas for a 100 mile stretch of roadway.

Our new line of V-series devices operate on the same principle but harvest the energy indirectly through vibrations.  In the V-series devices the energy that is normally dissipated into the roadway and surrounding environment is harvested to generate electricity either via induction or nano-scale mechanics.

Because the energy transfer is indirect, GSE V-series devices do not have the same potentials as the R-series units, yet we can still harvest vast amounts of dense energy for many applications via scaling.  The V-series devices, especially those designed for indoor usage, provide a dampening of vibration which can be harmful to people and other processes.

This technology was designed using the reverse of the principles employed in dampening vibrations for extremely sensitive devices such as electron microscopes.  The engineers at our parent company, Alacrity Inc., have years of experience in working to solve problems with extremely sensitive equipment, and that expertise has paid off with our new V-series.

Yet the V-series have the added benefit of direct conversion to electricity, which makes them ideal for applications such as roadway lighting or signage.

We are also working on the A-series of energy harvesting devices which we hope to add to our product line in the last quarter of 2013.  These devices are based upon atmospheric heat harvesting, and our line will include pumps, compressors, and possibly generators.


GSE devices include hundreds of patented or patent pending methods, which provide the performance levels described.

This is one of the biggest problems that we face in moving this technology forward. One of our guys was recently dismissed by a guy from Shell with the line "There must be an energy trade off, and you are are taking gas from passing motorists". Because of the forum we could not respond (It was like a Shark Tank critique). But he could not not be more wrong. The easiest way to see that this is not true is to imagine a roadway constructed of piezoelectric crystals, (something already tested in Israel) In this case the roadway is as flat and featureless as any paved roadway, yet a substantial amount of electricity was generated.

This is because energy is always diffused into the roadway as heavy objects move, no matter what obstacles are present. What this view does is confuse the harvest method with the energy source. Similar to someone denying the existence of electricity because of the use of magnets in its generation, which was one of the earliest misconceptions of electrical generation.

At a more fundamental level, this view demonstrates a limited view of thermodynamics, and the enthalpy of thermodynamic systems. [Enthalpy is a measure of the total energy of a thermodynamic system. It includes the internal energy, which is the energy required to create a system, and the amount of energy required to make room for it by displacing its environment and establishing its volume and pressure]

Yet, this is not a valid criticism of inertial harvesting methods, but is instead and engineering attribute. Our speed sponge devices are engineered specifically to remove energy from the passing vehicle. This design is ideal for traffic control applications.

GSE is working on a wide variety of roadway solutions, which include ultimately featureless pourable methods, which is less than 1 year away.

GSE devices include hundreds of patented or patent pending methods, which provide the performance levels described.

Momentum/Inertia technology is both one of the oldest  and the newest of the fundamental energy technologies.  It is one of the oldest, if not the oldest,  in that it is largely based on gravity.  Gravity is synonymous with weight and people have been using static and dynamic weight  as sources of energy for many  thousands of years.  Static gravity, as embodied in GSE S-series products, is used in most construction, as structural mass which is used to resist natural forces like wind and earthquakes.  Dynamic or relative mass, which is the basis of GSE R-series devices, can be traced back to cave men running a herd of animals off a cliff.Advanced Traffic Management System,the Intelligent Transportation System ,Increase transportation system efficiency, Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA),SAFETEA-LU,Real-time traffic monitoring, Dynamic message sign monitoring and control, Incident monitoring, Traffic camera monitoring and control, Active Traffic Management (ATM), Chain control, Ramp meter monitoring and control, Arterial management, Traffic signal monitoring and control, Automated warning systems, Road Weather Information System, (RWIS) monitoring, Highway advisory radio, Urban Traffic Management and Control, Livable Streets,Traffic engineers refer to three "E's" when discussing traffic calming:,speed humps, chicanes, curb extensions, and living street and shared space ,Visual traffic calming,lane narrowings, road diets, bulbouts, Chokers, which are curb extensions that narrow the roadway to a single lane at points, Road diets, Pedestrian refuges ,Speed bumps, Speed humps, Speed tables, Boom barrier, Enforcement and education measures, Vehicle activated sign, Watchman, traffic calming system,Cochrane Review, Randal O'Toole, social engineering, Weather modification, Project Stormfury, Benign Weather Modification, Air Force Major Barry B.

It is one of the newest fundamental energy technologies, in that many have wondered how it escaped the ancient inventors like Archimedes.   Some have labeled Gare Henderson,Ph.D., the primary inventor in 1998 of PEC, pressure to energy conversion, technology as the Newton or Archimedes of our age.  However, the technology of active gravity capture and concentration has a long provenance.   City dwellers have for centuries marveled at the ability of fastSplashed moving vehicles to transfer energy into placid puddles of water, causing passerby's to be drenched. Engineers have developed various methods for extracting useful energy from standing or moving water, including hydro-electricity, dynamic rams and water wheels.  This technology, which has been labeled by many as perpetual motion, is as fundamental as the weight of stones.

How can we be assured that GSE products are safe to use on our roadways?

We are currently involved in acceptance testing and certification with  AASHTO  testing program, awaiting the next cycle of testing of roadway devices.  We are also working with a few state based roadway testing processes.   However, if you are a stakeholder at the state or federal level  you can assist us by requesting that our products be evaluated by your testing authority.   These programs are added assurance to our own quality and engineering testing program in our OSHA certified testing facility.  

GSE engineers have studied  traffic, on the ground, all over the world.  We have generated anecdotal traffic engineering  reports for the following cities; US cities: New York, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angles, Houston, International cities: Cairo metro, London metro, Rome, Mexico city, Paris, Delhi, Jaipur, Beijing, Rio de Janeiro.  From these studies we have engineered our devices, with safety and durability standards necessary for these markets. Detailed performance data  is available for all of our pre-engineered designs , (R-S models).  While custom engineered solutions are all subjected to ISO 9000 engineering standards and testing.  Our source reports  for our secondary research include;[Highway Sector in Tajikistan(January 2011 ),Bridge Construction Market Analysis in Malaysia
(June 2011),The African Highway Sector (April 2012), Global Energy & Environment Market(February 2012), The Indian Highway Industry (December 2011), Highway Market in Slovakia (December 2011)]

Dr.Evan Mills of the Lawrence Berkeley and Dr.Dennis Maez from NREL are extremely skeptical and think that the device [Traffic Tap] causes a loss of fuel efficiency.

This kneejerk skeptical account was published  in 2001, and has been extremely detrimental to the both the spread of momentum/inertial power, and the ability of GSE to attract investors.  Over the years this has been the dismissive analysis by researchers and venture capitalists.  Yet, surprisingly given the
eminent credentials of both Dr. Mills and Dr. Maez, it is based neither on empirical  evidence nor systems analysis.

The skepticism  is understandable,  just as many were skeptical, or even hostile, to the world changing views of Copernicus, Galileo,  and Leibniz.  It seems contrary to common sense that significant energy flows into the earth, resulting from the movement of mass,  are not immediately evident to even the careful observer.  However, the accepted principles of the conservation of energy dictates that energy must be dissipated or converted since it cannot be destroyed. 

Two questions are evoked. What percentage of the energy of an object moving along the surface, bound by gravity, is dissipated into the earth, as opposed that percentage that is converted into waste heat and atmospheric friction.  We must recall that an object, bound to a fast moving mass by gravitational field,  which is the case for all  independent masses on the surface of the planet,  must have at least potential energy [flow].  This is made obvious when we compare the action of  a similar mass outside of a gravitational field.   The earth is rotating at roughly 1,000 miles per hour,  if sufficient energy, by either friction or impact, to increase velocity by 1,000 mph, was added to a mass, a force of equal magnitude would be required to resist acceleration.  Consequently, we must view,  the phenomena of weight as energy, albeit negative, or stasis, energy.  The  enthalpy of an animated mass is substantially dictated by its existence within a gravitational field.

Therefore, the movement of significant masses requires sufficient energy to overcome the negative energy of gravity at minimum.  Additional energy is required to overcome friction.  The conservation of energy  requires that all of these energies be diffused or converted.  We contend that the fuel of a vehicle is primarily  converted into  waste heat and horizontal  displacement, yet the energy use to overcome stasis is simply modulated, and flows synchronously through supporting structures, much like a water wave or the fanning of a flame.   The objective proof of the power and efficacy of these energy flows is the extent of damage to bridges and roadways, caused by traffic flows.  This phenomena of modulated energy  flows is also well documented, in solids, through P-waves which are the basis of earthquake detection.
 


The second question is; can the energy flows modulated by the movement of significant  masses be harvested adiabatically?  In other words can energy, (not necessarily heat but instead as pressure, or entropy which could be converted into heat), be harvested from  animated masses without energy loss or cost to the targeted masses inertial velocity.

In practical terms it is easy to see that through the use of rigid piezoelectric materials to construct roadways or dance floors, has proven our essential thesis, that energy can be harvested from dynamic masses adiabatically, without either increasing fuel usage or reducing fuel efficiency.

We are looking for green solutions for our road crews.  How can GSE technologies help us?

GSE R and S series devices are as green as fresh grass.   Zero emissions: GSE pumps and compressors are made from recycled rubber, and emit no green house gasses.   Very low approaching zero fuel consumption: GSE pumps, compressors, and hydrostatics use no petrochemical, no electricity, no sunlight, and no wind.  In the case of roadway appliances, 2-4 inches of additional distance is added to the fuel consumption of passing vehicles.

GSE R series, pumps and compressors, can assist road crews by supplying compressed air,  by eliminating the need for fuel based fluid pumping, and increase both motorist and worker safety by calming traffic flows.  The R series are easily deployed, durable, reliable, and acceptable to motorists.  Unlike traditional temporary speed bumps and speed humps, GSE R-series roadway devices are more pliable, allowing higher vehicle speeds, less noise, and very limited driver discomfort.

GE fluid pumps are ideal for construction projects where excessive groundwater is a problem  Our pump are easy to setup, effective, efficient, and flexible for a wide variety of construction site challenges.

What are the advantages of GSE systems over wind or solar powered solutions?

GSE R series devices are base energy systems, which is always available for traffic based applications.  The traffic base of GSE R series pumps and compressors makes them ideal for applications where a lot of vehicle or heavy animal traffic flows are available, or when such flows are coincident with energy requirements, as in livestock watering, or electronic roadway signage.

Inertia power has a unique niche profile in the power market.  Inertia power provides energy densities similar to  fuel, without the pollution.  However, due to the requirements of traffic flows inertial power is less dependable  than stored fuel.  Yet the demand sensitive nature of inertial power makes it ideal for many applications, which would require either significant fuel infrastructure or grid connections.  The fuel independence of inertial based applications allows for power hungry projects, such as air  pollution abatement or drought mitigation, which would be too expensive in terms of fuel or solar or wind infrastructure.

Inertial power share the same distributive nature with wind or solar (photovoltaic) or other DSE.  No grid connections or fuel supplies are required, and as a result most DSE (dynamic state energy) technologies are immune to systematic infrastructure failures. However inertial power alone is also independent of environmental factors  such as wind speed, or the availability of sunlight. Yet another advantage of inertial power is its simple durable design, which can easily be manufactured locally from recycled materials, but will still benefit from research toward greater efficiency, lower costs and increased service life.

Consequently the main advantages of inertial power over solar or wind are energy density and contextual reliability.


GSE devices include hundreds of patented or patent pending methods, which provide the performance levels described.

10.  Investigate potential partnerships with GSE.
11. Attend conferences where GSE executives are speaking or presenting papers.  You can get a running list of these opportunities in the about section of this website.




 
I've heard of this but somebody called it a perpetual motion system?

"Machines which comply with both laws of thermodynamics by accessing energy from unconventional sources are sometimes referred to as perpetual motion machines, although they do not meet the standard criteria for the name. By way of example, clocks and other low-power machines, such as Cox's timepiece, have been designed to run on the differences in barometric pressure or temperature between night and day. These machines have a source of energy, albeit one which is not readily apparent so that they only seem to violate the laws of thermodynamics.

Machines which extract energy from seemingly perpetual sources - such as ocean currents - are indeed capable of moving "perpetually" until that energy source runs down. They are not considered to be perpetual motion machines because they are consuming energy from an external source and are not isolated systems". Excerpt from Wikipedia

The primary source of energy for GSE R & S series devices is gravity, in that the devices would not be able to operate in a zero gravity environment.  Or in a reduced gravitational field, such as on the moon, these devices would generate proportionally reduced energy streams.  Therefore, since gravity is persistent but not perpetual these systems satisfy both the first and second  "laws" of thermodynamics, and cannot be classified as perpetual.

However, there are many identifiable sources at work with many of our devices, including; momentum, linear elasticity, and several electro-static phenomena.

"many people who were interested in inventing a perpetual motion machine had tried to circumvent the restrictions of First Law of Thermodynamics by extracting the massive internal energy of the environment as the power of the machine. Such a machine is called a "perpetual motion machine of the second kind". The second law declared the impossibility of such machines."



E=MC2 states plainly our understanding of energy flows.  Energy requires that both mass and motion must be greater than zero. Energy is the harvesting of the interaction of mass and change.  This is the fundamental principle of all DSE (Dynamic State Energy) systems, such as solar, wind, momentum/inertia and hydro.  The identification of methods of harvesting any state change, are the key to converting the mass of the planet, or its vast constituents, into energy streams.  

At GSE we are researching the many possibilities and we offer an extensive line of energy generating devices based upon these principles.

GSE R series livestock systems can be engineered for animals ranging from goats to elephants.  GSE systems are low maintenance, extremely durable, well tolerated by livestock, and most importantly always available when the animals are present.  A GSE R-series livestock pump can easily be applied to livestock watering or feeding, automatic flushing,  or to provide water for irrigation, or coShP500mpressed air for gates, and tools.  Our livestock series, as seen in Popular Mechanics, is a part of our custom above ground series.  Please contact our sales department for more information.





GSE devices include hundreds of patented or patent pending methods, which provide the performance levels described.

Where does this technology fit within a modern country like the US?

5-8 GSE SHP500, placed at key transition points, can replace a 6 x 6  200 Hp. (100 KWh) above ground pressure booster with normal suburban traffic, during normal driving hours.  Each of these 200 hp. units that are replaced will be as if more than 50 typical American homes were taken off the grid during the day.

When used on freeway exits, 2-3 GSE SHP500 can replace the same 200 Hp. pump, and multiple units can be employed on each ramp.  These equivalent installations would dramatically reduce accidents, and save the local government up to 1200 KWh of electrical generation cost each day.

In this time lapse video from Boston's Logan Airport you can easily see the traffic volume of extremely heavy vehicles.   An array of 100 well placed GSE compressors would easily supply enough power to  keep the runways clear of ice, remove excess ponding during storms, run emergency lighting, or even run all runway lights.


This application is like many for GSE innovative fluid movement methods.  The municipal rational for the investment can combine both fiscal and safety considerations, in that GSE units can be configured to calm traffic as well as move fluids, or compress gases.  Another key aspect of GSE technologies is the symbiotic relationship between activity and power generation.  For example if GSE units are employed on a suspension bridge, to compress air for power generation, cooling, and air storage, the power generation is greatest when activity levels peak.  The added benefit of local power generation, is key to disaster preparedness, and disaster nullification,, (i.e. road lighting during a blackout).

We are concerned that GSE devices will disrupt traffic flows...since they look like speed bumps?Comparative Action

While it is true that our, especially temporary, above ground units will introduce caution into the traffic stream. 

However, drivers will quickly learn that the distinctive green speed bumps are more like normal expansion joints.  The actual impact on vehicles is controlled by the choice and settings of the device.    GSE devices can be engineered on a scale, with a normal concrete speed bump being at 100, from 5 to 500%.

GSE Speed Sponges are all distinctively colored bright red, and drivAction of speed sponge slowing heavy truck moving too fasters will quickly learn that these are active speed /inertia  control devices.  In the illustration on the right, a series of speed sponges allow regular vehicle traffic to pass with no significant  impacts.  Yet when the heavy truck encounters the speed sponges, at a high rate of speed, the devices act to absorb the trucks energy with a noticeable bump.  

Once the truck has slowed to a proper speed, the device is no longer activated, and the truck passes with no noticeable effects.    This action is to implement an exponential decay on targeted traffic streams.   This type of decay function can be applied to reduced accidents or prevent breeching terrorist attacks.

Our roads are plowed during storms, how will plows affect GSE traffic control devices?

GSE devices are extremely hardy and durable and can withstand repeated plowings, however we recommend that roadside markers be employed  to minimize plowing of these devices.
