Mr. Ante (Tony) Guina, a Croatian born scientist and the Managing Director of Guina Energy Pty Ltd, commenced research into magnetic and electromagnetic fields in the mid 1990's. The company established an office on the Gold Coast, Australia, for the purpose of furthering this research. In 2004 the company broadened its research focus to include the rapidly advancing fields of Superconductivity and Superconductive Materials. Our first coils and electromagnets were made by HTS-110 in New Zealand in 2005. Over the years Mr Guina has invented several different engine concepts. Throughout the history of the company the goal of perfect rotary electromagnetic motors or generators has been constantly pursued.
In early 2010, Mr. Guina invented his first Electromagnetic Turbine motor (the Alpha-Tron). Since then Mr. Guina has invented coils and solenoids with a series of null regions in the electromagnetic field for use in the Super-Tron series of Electromagnetic Turbine motors and generators. He has also invented all of the other Electromagnetic Turbine motors and generators presented on this site. These Electromagnetic Turbine motors and generators represent the most advanced and powerful Homopolar Electromagnetic Turbines, in terms of their power to weight ratio, in the world.
Guina Energy has a dedicated team of scientists who have contributed to the further perfection of the Coils, Solenoids and Electromagnetic Turbine motor and generator designs. All of Guina Energy's scientists are long term employees dedicated to advancing the company's pioneering research and development.
In 2012, John Kells (Manager Development) invented our Electromagnetic Power Converters, required for successful implementation of our Homopolar Electromagnetic Turbine technology, and our Electromagnetic Gearboxes. These inventions were further developed and refined by Dr. Rene Fuger (Manager Research) & David Sercombe (Manager Project Development) along with the rest of the team. In 2012 Dr. Rene Fuger developed the Stray Field Reduction Technology for our Homopolar Electromagnetic Turbines which contains stray magnetic field without using heavy iron or steel shielding, thereby increasing power to weight ratios of our Homopolar Electromagnetic Turbine technology. Also in 2012 our team of scientists developed direct drive generators required for wind turbines and the Electromagnetic Power Convertors necessary for implementation of our entire range of Tron series Electromagnetic Turbine motors and generators. Towards the end of 2012 Mr. Guina invented a second generation of the Tron Electromagnetic Turbine motors and generators (G2). These motors and generators have been further developed by the team to improve power to weight ratios and reduce inter-coil forces resutling in simplified construction.
In late 2013 Mr. Guina invented a new class of AC electrical motors and generators based on sets of concentric racetrack coils. This new geometry significantly reduces the amount of superconducting wire required for a given power level.
In 2014, Mr Guina invented the first Toroidal Motors and Generators, followed by the invention of our Brushless Permanent Magnet motors and generators.
Research and development of liquid metal brush technology has been led by Dr. Arkadiy Matsekh (Manager Scientific Research) and Dr. Cesimiro Fabian (Manager Electromaterials Science & Innovation) with support from the team.
