Abstract

A new type of engine is proposed. The principle of the operation of this engine is as follows. The alternating electric current of high frequency flows from the condenser over the vertical conductor of the cross and branches at its centre in three directions. The vertical current generates a magnetic field. The horizontal currents flow in counter‐directions; therefore their magnetic fields are mutually cancelled, but the side branches of the cross are subjected to the operation of the Ampere force (F) from the magnetic field of the vertical conductor. This force moves the engine forward.
