I have just updated my web site with a new interesting experiment.
The Solid State Infinite Power Supply (IPS) has been invented by Ossie Callanan. Today, I have replicated the IPS device and conducted some tests and measurements. The inventor claims that his device is able to power a 220V/15 Watts light bulb with two 12V lead acid batteries as the power source without discharging these batteries...
So, I have tried to check this claim and tested the IPS circuit fully based on Ossie Callanan's original diagram.
You will find the diagram, the photos and advices for a full replication and also all tests datas results of the IPS device that I have tested in my web site at :
( 02-22-04 ) IPS Tests results :
The IPS tests results are very interesting and show that :
- During at least 4 hours and half, the voltage of the two batteries used as power sources remains very stable,
- During 4 hours and half, the voltage of the batterie B2 has only dropped of (12.84V - 12.63V) = 0.21V ( -1.6% ) and the voltage of the batterie B2 has only dropped of (12.86V - 12.50V) = 0.36V ( -2.8% ) while one ampere is drawn from each battery and the light bulb brights fully at the IPS output.
- During the full test ( 7 hours 20 min ), the voltage of the batterie B2 has only dropped of (12.84V - 12.58V) = 0.26V ( -2% ) and the voltage of the batterie B2 has only dropped of (12.86V - 11.51V) = 1.35V ( -10.5% ). It is important to notice that the batterie B1 is a new battery while the battery B2 is an old battery.
- The intensity of the light emitted by the light bulb connected at the IPS output has never apparently dropped during the whole test.
Today, I can say that the Ossie Callanan's IPS device works at least as a very efficient Power Inverter and is worth to be replicated and tested. Thanks to Ossie Callanan for sharing free his invention for the benefit of all.
