A crappy animation showing the flow of current in the Bedini SSG circuit using the schematic. Hopefully it will help people understand what is happening in the circuit. I’ve added some annotations to show the difference between Back EMF and Flyback Voltage. Flyback Voltage is the correct term for the energy coming from the collapsing magnetic field. Back EMF is the term used for the voltage generated by the rotor magnets passing the stator. Only in certain configurations can the Back EMF be used to charge the battery because in a standard configuration the Back EMF’s voltage is lower than the charging battery’ voltage.
