  • Self Acting Engine

    This topic thread I am creating is to present the progress of my work towards building a self acting engine, based on the proposed ideas by Nikola Tesla back in 1900. I was a bit unsure of whether I should post this work under Peter Lindemann or else under Nikola Tesla. It is true that this idea was first introduced to me by Tesla while reading his excellent "The Problems of Increasing Human Energy"; however, it was really Lindeman's outstanding disclosure that really called my attention towards this subject.

    In addition, though, it was again Lindemann who invited me to work on this subject during a phone conversation a few years ago. I admit I did not receive his suggestion too enthusiastically back then, but ... well, life goes around and many things have happened since then. The point is that I have finally, much due to Lindemann's suggestion (enthusiastic suggestion, I might add), decided to devote my time and effort towards trying to materialize Tesla's Self Acting Engine original idea.

    I am not sure whether I will succeed with this project, but hey, this whole forum is full of efforts of that sort, right? Let us hope for the best and we'll see what's ahead of us in this adventure.

    While I present my progress, though, I would suggest to those interested but new in the subject to obtain Lindemann's "Open System Thermodynamics" copy of his presentation. Although the mathematics and the whole thermodynamics engineering involved in this matter is quite complex (sometimes I think more than necessary), Lindemann makes an outstanding job in presenting the process idea in very simple-to-understand terms.

    Cheers to all and here we go.....
