Given the continuous growth of human population and the enormous increase in global demand for energy, energy supply is becoming less and less, giving rise to a lot of concerns.
Amid the worldwide fears of future energy shortages and the expected devastating impact of this on the economic growth in many countries, a lot of efforts have been put in the process of searching for new methods that would save the world from power-supplying crisis.
In this sense, an Egyptian engineer has managed to invent a revolutionary motor which is able to recycle the energy initially consumed by it in a closed cycle, with the result of saving energy and keeping the motor running efficiently.
“In July 2009, I started working personally, privately and individually on an idea of an efficient motor,” said Mr. Hosni Shafi'i.
The 31-year old mechanical engineer got a breakthrough in February 2010, as he successfully invented his first prototype. Then Shafi'i began later to manufacture another larger model that got finished by August 2010.
When It First Sparked
Amidst the process of making this brilliant invention, Shafi'i had to bear the brunt of going through two painful tests which nearly hindered the whole process. Poverty and the high cost of the necessary equipments posed major challenges for him along the way
Because of his busy schedule, Shafi'i was only able to work on his invention after the long hours of daily tiring work, as he was obligated to stay awake for days to finish this process.
“A year later, in June 2011, I made the third prototype. Fortunately, the three prototypes are of completely different designs,” Shafi'i explained to OnIslam.net.
In order to overcome the problem of equipment’s unaffordable cost, Shafi'i tried to contact Chinese plastic factories hoping that they could help in building his motor by manufacturing some expensive kits for him, but unfortunately he didn’t receive any positive or serious response.
Shafi'i didn’t only stop at this step, he managed to contact several European and North American universities, but it was a bit disappointment for him to be turned down by the professors and doctors who view his idea of new motor as contradictory with the physics laws of thermodynamics.
In his reaction to this argument, Shafi'i made it clear in his countless project’s presentations that his motor is not against the first law of thermodynamics. “Energy can't be created or destroyed, but it transfer from one form to another. I am just trying to make the best use of the same amount of energy as it won’t get destroyed,” Shafi'i explained.
Shafi'i’s idea sparks from the concept that: “Normally, we intake energy, use it or burn it, and then let it dissipate. For example, we use the energy once, then neglect it, and then we try to search for another amount of this precious priceless energy to use it once again, and so on in a costly and a wasteful process. What I’m just trying to do is to close the chain and stop this waste of our planet’s energy.. I am just trying to reuse the un-destroyable energy.”
Making Successful Strides
The next step for Shafi’i was Kuwait as the Egyptian engineer, who graduated from the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University, attempted to apply for a patent on his idea in October 2010. Sadly, this was met with refusal for being a foreigner.
A few months later, Shafi’i got from the German Patent office the kind of recognition he has longed for, and in July 3, 2011, he flew to Munich where he registered his patent, Utility Model.
After returning from Germany and proving without doubts that his invention is genuine and compatible with physics facts, Shafi'i registered two other patents in both Kuwait and Egypt.
Furthermore, in January 27, 2012, Shafi'i received a confirmation letter from the German Patent Office announcing that the utility model is registered and certified. “Now, the idea is logical, applicable, efficient, never been done before.. So it is patentable,” he said happily.
Shafi’i, who got his Masters from Cairo University’s Faculty of Engineering, looks forward at: “I wish to get it executed alive, I am working on that alone for more than three years now, I have more designs in the same line, but it is so expensive filing a patent over each and every one, I dream of a world of limitless clean energy, finally I wish to find it suitable and challenging in your studies and researches.”
The motor typically work upon the idea of taking its initial power from a battery. It can also take alternating current (AC), but this requires an AC-to-direct current (DC) converter. The design of the motor can run itself with a built-in battery. This integrated battery is acting in the circuit like a capacitor/condenser that charges and discharges the electric charges while the engine is running.
