We are pleased to welcome you to our RGEnergy research site. Here we will discuss the progress being made to develop this gyrokinetic power source and what remains to be done. Tom and I were directly involved in design and construction of the original rare gas fueled engines. Other members of our group have personal first hand knowledge or expertise in the fuel mixture and excitation parameters required. It appears that we are moving swiftly towards fruition.
Units as small as 50KW reaching
on upwards to the Megawatts can
be operated economically and reliably to power homes, apartment buildings, skyscrapers, or entire city blocks.
As the gyrokinetic engines
become a reality, localized
power generation will become
No more watching and praying
as every storm or solar flare
shuts down massive sections
of the grid.

What is a Gyrokinetic Engine ?
The principle of the gyrokinetic engine is deceptively basic and simple: A hermetic telescoping gas chamber is filled with a relatively inexpensive, abundant, and harmless charge of inert gases. These gases are subjected to controlled low voltage electronic pulses and frequency effects to create a powerful expansion. Removal or reversal of the pulses causes a contraction leaving the gases ready to cycle again. During this cycle electrons are released in sufficient quantity to provide for the power requirements of the opposing cylinder. This cyclic energy release does not release significant amounts of heat.
What Can a Gyrokinetic Engine do ?
Since the gyrokinetic engine is not aspirated, it is capable of operating in any type of environment. To date, the engine appears to be torque limited to around 700 ft-lbs irregardless of speed. At a 1000 rpm a two cylinder will generate approximately 130 HP. The real maximum has never been completely tested. The gases themselves are estimated to have a life cycle of well over a 1000 hours while in normal operation. In simpler terms, you could theoretically fill up your car with a charge of inert gas, drive it for ten thousand miles and have it recharged along with your normal servicing routine. All this time you are releasing nothing into the atmosphere and taking nothing out
Why are we pursuing this
research so aggressively?
Why are we asking for all
the help we can get?
We had it all in our day: clean air, sunshine, and all the energy we could want!
We need to do our very best
We need to say we tried
We need to leave it better
What will we leave our grand-kids? What will be our legacy?
No Fracking, Cracking and Drilling
Just Dependable Plentiful Clean and Economical Energy
No Exotic Chemical Compounds
