Magnetic powered motor system:
A solution power crisis?
Sudath Sunimal Perera
To give up his passion as a seaman and the big money he earned on
board a merchant ship as a marine electrical engineer was a dream left
behind for aspiring young Sudath Sunimal Perera who chose to fulfil his
innate talent, his forte in physics by turning out a low cost magnetic
powered motor system which could be the answer to one of the country's
pressing issues, the power crisis.
The young inventor gave up his career and began working out the
mechanisms of this device almost two and a half years ago, bent on
making it a success story and an explanation to the inevitable worldwide
power crisis, Sunimal says the concept could be demonstrated if
The low cost of preventive and corrective maintenance has proved to
be an added advantage and NASA has expressed interest in Sunimal's
invention while the National Intellectual Property Office of Sri Lanka
has informed him by letter that his search report is ready for
However, Sunimal expressed his utter disappointment that even having
said so, the authorities have not taken action to derive its benefit up
to now. He seeks speedy intervention of the government to make this
Although the magnet device required for the motor system cannot be
manufactured in Sri Lanka according to the inventor; the US Magnetic
Company has promised to make it available if and when necessary. Thus,
it is only the support of the government that is required at this
juncture. Sunimal is worried that the country may lose out on the
opportunity of putting the device to test.
This is a fine natural powered device and apparently is Sunimal's
second invention following his invention of a solar powered aircraft
which could improve plane and helicopter technology in Sri Lanka is
proud of his alma mater, Holy Cross College Kalutara, Sunimal has
reached the unreachable, dreamed the impossible and made it all happen.
