AS the first post to this forum, it is only fitting to use topic as an introduction to the advanced concepts intended to be tested and developed through the Cosmoneer platform.
As the thread subject implies, the concept is power recycling via a super capacitor (or bank of super capacitors.) There are three or more supercaps, with the fist supercap being the smallest capacitance amongst the supercaps being evaluated (i.e. - 0.47F.) This supercap acts as the source of power, and is provided energy at 5.0 volts
The second, third or more capacitors are of equal value to each other and are at least double or more in size. These supercaps are placed just before the ground and act as a discharged battery, eager to consume all energy passed along to it.
It is this charging/discharging process this concept focuses on.
Once the smallest supercap is charged, it is allowed to discharge through a completed circuit which then dumps into a super capacitor. When the smaller supercap needs a recharge, a booster circuit is connected to the semi-charged supercap and the charge is used to funnel charge back to the "smaller supercap".
