Introduction
Rationale
Access to sustainable energy has a direct relationship with job creation,
industrialization, health, climate change, food production, and consequently economic
growth. With the level of technological advancement of this generation, energy has become
essential to people’s lives. However, the grid-based power generation capacity is insufficient
and unreliable to meet the increasingly growing demands of the population. Low incomes and
huge cost of electricity make electricity unaffordable for citizens, despite the availability of
renewable resources. Third world countries can readily harness the cost-effectiveness and the
availability advantages offered by free energy option to meet continuously growing demands
as encouraged large-scale ownership of expensive generators.
Energy accounts for about 60 percent of total greenhouse gas emitted worldwide.
There is an ongoing drive to significantly increase the proportion of renewable energy in the
global energy mix. Renewable energy is a form of alternative energy source that can be
conserved and can continuously replenish without any adverse effect on the planet. Common
energy sources in the Philippines include hydroelectric power, geothermal energy, solar, wind
and biomass energies. Out of all, solar energy has proven to be the most promising owing to
its unparalleled potential for power generation. The Philippines has unlimited renewable
resources but the large-scale conversion of these abundant resources into usable form has
been the challenge. Home users and small companies have started exploiting alternative
energy to meet their energy needs. Solar energy seems to be receiving more patronage but its
17
output performance is subject to unpredictable weather condition and limitations of
geographical locations. The durability of photovoltaic panels is not satisfactory enough for
sustainability. In addition, power generation using solar energy tends to be more costintensive to run on long term. Therefore, low incomes and exorbitant cost of energy make
energy unaffordable for citizens, despite the availability of resources.
Off-grid power generation is an effective energy solution to curtailing business
downtime that unreliable power grid has introduced. This will help to revamp the current
economic decline. Low-income countries can readily harness the cost-effectiveness and the
availability advantages offered by free energy option to meet continuously growing energy
demand in the region, without any adverse effect on the environment. Neodymium
Magnetically-Induced Free Energy Generator (NMIFEG) is a form of “free energy‟ source
since no external force is required to drive the system. It operates purely on the principle of
magnetic field induction and it is sustainable for households and small businesses in the
Philippines.
In this paper, the researchers will be developing NMIFEG that uses neodymium
magnetic field that exists between similar magnetic poles to generate electricity. The magnets
allow NMIFEG to operate continuously without depending on any external source. It is a
complex design that involves the interconnection of diverse components of power generation
and distribution. The repulsive force produces a torque which serves as a prime mover for
rotor blades. The energy generated is transferred to a charge controller connected to the
battery bank. The battery supplies the inverter with a direct current (DC) input voltage for
electricity generation in alternating current (AC) form.

Statement of the Problem
The study aims to identify the effectiveness of free energy using neodymium magnet
as an independent source of electricity.
Specifically, the study intends to answer the following questions:
1. How effective will the use of neodymium magnet be in producing electricity for basic
electrical appliances
2. How much voltage can be produced from this innovation using neodymium magnet as
a source of free energy?
3. How can this independent source of electricity contribute to the local community?
Scope and Limitation
The study will focus on creating an independent source of energy that uses
neodymium magnet that creates magnetic field that exists between similar magnetic poles to
generate electricity. In addition, this energy source will be tested on selected appliances to
perceive the effectiveness of the independent electricity source.
19
The study will be only utilizing one type of magnet which would be the neodymium
magnet which is an appropriate strong magnetic field.
The study will be conducted in the premises of Gusa Regional Science High SchoolX.

Definition of terms
Magnetic Wire
- According to tech-faq.com, it is a copper or aluminum wire that
produces an electromagnetic field when wrapped into a coil and
connected to a power supply. Magnetic wire is used in transformers
to increase the voltage of an electrical current that is carried
through traditional power lines.
Off-grid power
- According to offgridworld.com, The term off-the-grid (OTG) can
refer to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or
more public utilities…”
Neodymium Magnet
- According to kjmagnetics.com, Neodymium magnets are a
member of the Rare Earth magnet family and are the most
powerful permanent magnets in the world. They are also referred to
as NdFeBmagnets, or NIB, because they are composed mainly
of Neodymium (Nd), Iron (Fe) and Boron (B).
Transformer
- According to circuitglobe.com, it is a static electrical machine
which transfers AC electrical power from one circuit to the other
circuit at the constant frequency, but the voltage level can be
altered that means voltage can be increased or decreased according
to the requirement.
Magnetic Field Induction - According to Techopedia, Electromagnetic induction is the
production of voltage or electromotive force due to a change in the
magnetic field.
